Anonymous floods Aberdeen's Red Purple and Blue blog with a list of 49 myths and distortions about the health care reform bill. Adam Feser earns his blog pay by fighting back, debunking the claims of forced suicide, then unloading with a thunderous 40-plus-point rebuttal to Anonymous's bull.
I am stunned at the ignorance and willful lies displayed by opponents of, well, basically anything President Obama proposes. It takes a lot more effort to prove the truth than to spout a few convenient lies. As my friend Mr. Gibilisco points out, "This behavior is downright evil, and all responsible Republicans should denounce it at once. I won't wait for any deafening roar from that quarter, however."
In the absence of responsible politics from the GOP, I am thankful that there are diligent researchers like Mr. Feser who will do the work necessary to extinguish such harmful lies. Sincere applause, Adam. You are serving your country and the truth very well. Keep up the good work!
By the way, all you euthanasia-criers ought to learn to use hyperlinks. Instead of offering a vague assertion that "Page 429" lets the government kill you, use OpenCongress.org. They offer H.R. 3200 (and every other piece of legislation) in Web format with hyperlinks to every section and clause.
So come on, propagandists: you're smart enough to use the Web; get smart enough to use hyperlinks. It will make for better, more reasoned debate.
