When Obama introduced his plans for universal heath care, does anybody think the Mark would also be introduced, with instruction 'No mark; no heath insurance'?

Yes, cos here in the UK we also have marks to get health insurance. What was that board rule again? No calling Obama the anti-Christ? Ignorant hypocrites of the tallest order.

If by Mark you mean proof of residency then yes.
6/15/2009 8:51:31 PM
Wait, isn't the mark of the beast supposed to mean that you willingly and knowingly sided with Satan?
6/15/2009 8:53:22 PM
So you're not allowed to call Obama the Antichrist, but you're allowed to say you think he'll do everything the Anti-Christ will supposedly do?

I have "heath insurance," but I sure could use some moor insurance.

Oh, fuck me, what is he
That's one of the most ridiculous things I've seen here -- and that's saying something.
6/15/2009 9:19:17 PM
Ah, but which number? It does confuse the fundies so.
6/15/2009 9:22:26 PM
Yes. Yes, I certainly think that will happen. Exactly like that. Totally.
ZOMG that's not even vaguely in line with the crazy book that YOU SUPPOSEDLY BELIEVE.

My favorite post from later in the topic:
"It is called "Universal" Health Care. Could be one step closer to something that is International?"
Oh sure, because Obama has the power to institute health care on all other countries in the world. Mmm-hmmm, makes perfect sense.

Right, you little fucker, what is it you have against universal healthcare?
It's empathetic, it's helping out people that need it rather than everyone grabbing for themselves.
That sounds like a pretty awesome thing that Jesus would support.
Oh wait, I forgot, your version of Jesus is more likely to cut your head off than actually, you know, help anyone.

I guess that there's no proffit in universal health care. That's why fundies hate it. I have read somewhere, forgive me for not providing citations, it was one of national newspapers quoting "NY Times", that all you need to happen to screw your life in US of A is prolonged disease. Medical bills +absence from work= loss of job => bankrupcy
That's not the system I would like to live in.

Who was President when the REAL ID Act was passed?

Nah, here in Oz we have it. Applying for a medicare card is like doing your tax, you get a number from one of those little ticket machines, you don't get 666 unless you really luck out in which case you can...
A) Normal person: Giggle about it for an exceedingly brief period and save it as a souvenir - if you have way too much free time.
B) Fundie: Run screaming from the room.
Either way you won't get to see the doctor any faster at a bulk billing (free) clinic.
You'll still be sitting in between the single mom with 7.5 squealing kids and the junkie who won't stop scratching himself for about an hour or three while you leaf through several back issues of National Geographic.

Hello Trance. I see you have a new end time hypothesis today.
Ummm, I agree with the posts above and not your hypothesis.

Universal means universal, for EVERYONE. No health insurance needed - if you are sick you get treatment. As it works in Canada and Cuba and most other countries.

How do these people exist without instructions on how to inhale and exhale? They are so pathetically ignorant, they should still be living in caves.
6/16/2009 1:01:22 AM
Oh for fuck's sake! Health cards! The rest of the world somehow manages them.
6/16/2009 1:02:35 AM
No, social security doesn't work that way.

Yes, the Watermark of the Beast will be placed on every identification card.

Universal healthcare is so wonderful.
I had some seriously bad food poisoning once (so bad they thought initially that I had appendicitis) and so I was taken to the hospital, treated overnight, given an ultrasound to assess damage and sent me home with an approximate bill of nearly $0 for the privilege.
Also here we combine it with a tax rebate for those who ease the strain on the system by taking up private healthcare (which will also cover you for non-essential medical procedures like taking out wisdom teeth or braces).
It's the best. And all America would have to do to fund it is cut their military spending!
Actually the USA could accomplish alot by cutting military spending.

Well, I recently had a couple of Heart attacks needed an ambulance and spent twelve days in hospital including several in emergancy. Plus I now have present and future outpatient care - i.e., access to a Heart specialist as needed.
Cost = Medicare levy paid over the past 20 or more years, i.e., no bills, no immediate $1,000's in costs. I paid for it all during my healthy years, and am now getting a return on my enforced investment.
It's called Universal Health Care, and I am alive because of it. If RRites don't want it they can die because they hav not got the money to stay healthy - come to think of it, that's what they want anyway - they want to be dead, so they should oppose Universal Health Care.

Obama could announce a free Bible giveaway tomorrow, and they'd still be saying it's a lead in to the mark, wouldn't they? "No mark, no Bible!"
6/16/2009 2:30:20 AM
Yes you will. It will look just like the Dark Mark in Harry Potter.
6/16/2009 2:54:18 AM
No, no one thinks that.

There's one mark that all must show. In fact, it is my commandment of the day. All worshipers of me, Sgt. Love, must bear the holy sign of the love bite.
Show your love to Sgt. Love.
