Obamacare's perverted parents
By A.J. DiCintio

Millennials may have missed it because for the umpteenth time they were re-writing the resume that really isn't the reason they haven't established themselves in a good career after thousands of hours of dedicated job hunting.

Or because they were finishing up chores in accordance with the rental contract entered into with mom and dad.

So, for them, especially, but also anyone else who didn't see it, here's the skinny regarding the "Thanksgiving" television ad produced by Barack Obama's Organizing for America:

It's set at a pretend dining room table where a make-believe mother and father lecture their Millennial Generation son about his responsibility to enroll in Obamacare.

Its purpose, of course, is to convince real parents they bear the responsibility of hectoring their adult children about establishing a life-long relationship with the Affordable Care Act, a marriage mom and pop clearly deem as important as joining with family and friends to celebrate the most important secular and religious holidays.

Now, as Charles Krauthhammer has observed, the appeal is full of "a kind of creepy Soviet element."

And he makes a truly perceptive observation; for every authoritarian regime insists that no place can be free from the state's "political agenda," certainly not the Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Hanukkah table.

That statist agenda, by the way, is mainly carried out by diktats, which, since antiquity, have been issued by degenerate, syphilitic kings, queens, emperors, and fuhrers or other brain-and-bone-rotted dictatorial perverts of both genders, for example, those who comprise a troika, a gang of four, or, in the U.S. since the fifties, a quintet of five "activist" justices.

It's also necessary to observe that these days the simple, one sentence diktat of old has exploded into laws that run to 2,000 or more indecipherable pages supplemented by as many as 10-15,000 pages of inscrutable regulations. But not to worry we are told, for as today's quintile of judicial activists have informed us, divining the meaning of everything is their job.

No wonder the ad induces the creepy-crawlies.

As a matter of fact, it ought to give every Jeffersonian an excruciating case of the creepies and the crawlies.

After all, in harmony with every other member of the church which makes a religion of politics and gods of politicians, the ad's parents willingly bow before the immutable commandment that requires congregants to subordinate truth to the Revolution or Cause their power-loving, star-gazing Political Messiah dreamed up to lead a hopelessly backward people Forward.

And sure enough, behind faces that give off the appearance of earnest probity, the shameless parents of the "Thanksgiving" ad dutifully deliver the Obamacare sales pitch to their own flesh and blood with a flawless exhibition of the propaganda technique called Card Stacking.

It may get stomachs churning, but here is what a mother and father who oozed from OFA's true-believing minds fail to tell their ostensibly beloved son.

They never mention that a truly "transformative" Barack Obama would have tackled the nation's healthcare problems by taking on the difficult but necessary challenge of bringing smart, innovative, honest reform to virtually every aspect of the existing health system, the kind of real reform that has been outlined in detail by smart, innovative, honest, non-ideological experts who are never given the opportunity to make a big splash before Congress.

They never point out that the president chose instead to heap upon the current system a decrepit Great Society style monstrosity that pays off big pharma; big insurers; big corporations; big labor; big, crony-capitalist lobbyists and politicians; and big, distant, unaccountable, unapproachable government, as evidenced by a new, gigantic, bloodsucking, blood-curdling bureaucracy that includes 15,000 heavily armed IRS enforcers.

They never explain that instead of saving two trillion dollars over ten years, some of which could have been used to remediate deficiencies in the current system, the president intends to spend two trillion more, his lie about a $900 billion price tag for Obamacare notwithstanding.

They never come clean that in order to pay for the abomination he created, the president consciously chose to force Millennials (and tens of millions of other citizens) into exchanges where they are forced to pay exorbitantly high insurance premiums.

And they certainly never bring up this foul irony:

By forcing higher costs on Millennials, the president has laid a heavy, new weight on those already suffocated by the frightful rapist incubi that are unemployment and underemployment, enormous higher education debt, a weak economy, a declining middle class, and tens of trillions in national debt and unfunded liabilities resulting from the astounding irresponsibility exhibited by spend and borrow demagogues who constitute the world's most recent "generation of vipers."

Finally, the Obamacare parents have nothing to say about other lies President Obama and his officials have told, for example, about keeping one's health insurance, one's doctor, and one's hospital.

Therefore, all that is left to say about the propagandistic frauds is this:

While it is absolutely true the word "pervert" must be used with care, it is also true, as in the case of the shoe, that when it "fits," a person ought to "wear it," in this case, hanging from the neck as a sign of humiliation and, more importantly, warning.
