Obamacare itself "shames, divides, and demeans"

I realize that Melissa Harris-Perry’s little stunt on MSNBC, comparing the word “Obamacare” to the “N” word, was just that — a feeble attempt to get anyone with a pulse to watch her network and click on the website. After all, most of the network’s anchors have been banished to broadcast outer darkness for crimes against human decency and the channel’s longstanding tradition of desperation is quickly devolving into pathological, endless mortification.

But I wonder if there isn’t some merit to the point Harris-Perry was making before she launched into a prurient soliloquy on Obama Her Savior. After all, in any honest word-association test, most rational Americans would think first of words like debacle, disaster, and fraud when confronted with the realities of Obamacare. Aside from the failures of the website, it is an attack on 1/6 of the economy, the results of which we have not yet seen, and it is also in the process of destroying and dismantling the best, most innovative healthcare system the world has ever known. Not only that, it has eroded Americans’ faith in government and attacked the fundamental structures of our constitutional republic, destroying religious liberties in the process. Not to mention the coming Medicaid timebomb. As Harris-Perry said, “The Affordable Care Act will loom large in the president’s legacy as the singular accomplishment of his two terms,” adding that he is “playing to win.”

Harris-Perry said the term Obamacare was meant to “shame and divide and demean.” I say that Obamacare itself shames and divides and demeans. And so I call on the FCC to force all broadcasters to bleep the word Obam#!@$e from now on. No one should be permitted to speak this treasonous word on the airwaves from this day forward. The FCC bans “profane” language between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., defining profanity as “including language so grossly offensive to members of the public who actually hear it as to amount to a nuisance.” I’d say that “Obamacare” undoubtedly fits within the boundaries of that definition. We should also vow to stop using Obam#!@$e in its original form in print and online media.

If Ohio Governor Kasich could issue a proclamation banning the letter “M” in the state due to the rivalry between the Ohio State University Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines — Kasich noted that U.S. Fish and Wildlife is considering adding wolverines to the threatened species list — the FCC ought to be able to ban the word that is threatening our health care and our very liberty, which amount to far more than a “grossly offensive nuisance.”

This is the person who wears tampons as earrings. I think we can ignore her.

I say the bleep should go over the first part of the word... whether the second part of it is there or not.

Obama has said he was proud the law was being called Obamacare.

I think we should call it 0-Care. (That's a zero btw)

It's only called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) now precisely because it's been such a disaster...had it worked as planned (the website rollout that is), would there be any doubt she would have been the first to trumpet the success of O-care? (rhetorical question)

No, it's to shut down any discussion of the Obamacare disaster.

Perry is the last person who should be both invoking a principle and precedent by using the word "treasonous," since she is a traitor to everything this nation stands for. Too late to put that genie back in the bottle.

Perry herself only exists on the fumes of the failures and resentments of America's saddest and most ignorant citizens. Perry has always been able to vote, was never a slave or colonized and yet she acts as if she personally has experienced all the tears of the world. She is a fanatic.
