BILL MAHER SHOWS US WHAT REAL VIOLENCE IS … TREAT THOSE WHO OBJECT TO HEALTHCARE LIKE WHORES

Bill Maher:  a truly wonderful man.At one time Bill Maher was a very funny fellow, but as time has passed, he has turned into a bitter,vulgar, strident Obama pimp. No longer hip or insightful, he’s just rude and crude.

As more and more people have rejected his vision of religion (remember Religulous … a movie fewer people than the 12 Apostles saw?) and other topics near and dear to the hearts of progressives everywhere, his speech and “vision” of America have become more and more warped and radical.

In his attempts to denigrate the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Republicans, Conservatives, pro-life advocates, and any and all who show the least little bit of support for faux President Obama, he ends up making a ass of himself. He clearly hates everyone who does not share his views, some would say he hates himself, but that’s a topic for another day.

This weekend on his March 26th show he showed us what true violence is here.

One writer, when talking about Maher’s failed movie on religion said this,” his positive admonitions are lost in the maelstrom of cheap-shots, deliberate over-simplification, pontification, and the same narrow-minded claim to certainty for which Maher so angrily excoriates religious folk.”

This statement is equally applicable to his position that we “the unwashed and uneducated” need to be dragged kicking and screaming into his vision of America’s healthcare future.

    Is this the "healthcare reform" that this sad, ugly man wishes for the USA?

    Ron Panzer, founder of the Hospice Patients Alliance says that U.S. government rules, which supposedly protect patient privacy, have created a climate of fear among medical personnel to prevent them from reporting deliberate killing of hospice patients.

    Panzer has received masses of complaints and pleas for help from patients and their families. The institutions are not fulfilling the gentler and useful function of hospice to care for the incurable and terminal patient. He says that tens of thousands of patients who are not otherwise “near death” are being killed in private institutions, to decrease their costs and increase profits, while the government “saves money” by not having to contribute to patients’ care in hospitals. Panzer warns that the rationing designed into Obamacare will greatly intensify the problem.

    In the draft of a forthcoming book, How Hospices Hide the Killings, Panzer says that HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) rules, in effect threaten jail and huge fines for reporting crimes against patients.

    Panzer writes,

    “Fear! That’s what HIPAA is all about. Just like the fear created in Nazi Germany when people were terrified, not just “afraid,” to look this way or that, feared to be perceived as a Jew, a homosexual, a gypsy, a revolutionary, a troublemaker of any sort. So, they all became “sheep,” and that is how the people in our country have become, like sheep, afraid that their slightest move to speak out will find them out of a job, fined, even imprisoned.

    “Nurses, doctors and others are now liable for [jail time and] fines up to $40,000 or more for certain HIPAA violations. These fines would destroy many of them financially. Some would lose their jobs.”

    In order to report and document instances of crimes against patients — such as “terminal sedation” of those who are not terminally ill — a staff member would have to provide certain patient information. The HIPAA statute officially allows for such reporting to regulating agencies — not to the public —, but Panzer says that in practice no prosecutions of abusers occur and potential whistleblowers are terrified into silence.

    To test the reality and intent behind the HIPAA statute, Panzer himself put in the very first complaint ever filed under HIPAA about violation of patient privacy. The case involved Florida Suncoast Hospice (originally called Elisabeth Kubler Ross Hospice, after its founder, the notorious death cultist). Suncoast was distributing a hospice software program that displayed on “help screens” data about its real patients — their names, addresses, diagnoses.

    The U.S. Office for Civil Rights (OCR), which is supposed to act on HIPAA filings, sat on Panzer’s complaint for three years. OCR then turned it over to the Justice Department, which also did nothing.

    Panzer notes that the hospice in question “has high-level connections,” a general problem countering real patient protection.

    Panzer warns that the climate of fear surrounding treatment of vulnerable patients is just one aspect of the potential for a Nazi-like dictatorship under the present U.S. regime.

    And the policy of euthanasia is just one aspect of the fascism oozing all around us.
