Actually by Bryant Francis
I’m proud to be an American. Every day, I wake up and hum the lyrics to that fantastic Bruce Springsteen song, turn on Fox News and chow down on a hearty bowl of Wheaties, loving this great country and its amazing leaders. But now I hate my government, because it’s being taken over by Communists and Nazis, and their weapon of choice—Death Panels.
Yes, Death Panels! Capital D, capital P! The same people who waged international wars and murdered millions of innocent people, clearly now have a new goal! Destroying America’s health care system from the inside out, by first denying health are coverage for anyone who’s not “efficient enough” for this “Great Society.” It’s almost as bad as the insurance companies!
I’m sorry, but I just can’t believe what I’m seeing on TV these days. Did you know we elected a socialist who decided to put these Death Panels in place? I didn’t! I thought he was a Muslim, and I know THEY’RE not socialists. (At least, I think…) It’s like I’ve entered some Hollywood movie, where the good guys are waving around American Flags, and the evil Nazis and Communists have banded together to form a super-league of evil! We have to band together, we have to defend our capitalistic nation. We have to—hey, kids, get your damn hands off my Medicare!
