Soylent Green

Obama's Health Future

"Look, the first thing for all of us to understand that is we actually have some -- some choices to make about how we want to deal with our own end-of-life care," Mr. Obama replied. After discussing ways "we as a culture and as a society [can start] to make better decisions within our own families and for ourselves," he continued that in general "at least we can let doctors know and your mom know that, you know what? Maybe this isn't going to help. Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller." --President Obama

Retirement age may yet take on a whole new meaning, we can call it "going home."

I know it's completely ridiculous to be comparing the movie, Soylent Green, to the direction the country is taking but then again, it seems to actually be the direction the country is taking. I think the left gets their ideas from movies like this. I can't yet see the whole eating people thing happening - give it time - but assisted suicide is here, it's just a matter of building the euthanasia centers. Hey, maybe you're better off taking the "painkiller."

When will America wake up?
