The issue of health care reform is only one of many issues where I can make the case.
Let me make the case by telling you that military thinkers believe that the number one enemy the military should fear is health care!
Now, unless you have researched this, you will exclaim "I can't believe that".
Let's look at what military scholars say by revisiting a Dredd Blog post from last March that focused on this issue:
Pentagonia, capitol of Bullshitistan, well aware of the current political climate, has declared who its greatest enemy is, believing it is health care:(Deja Vu - Guns v. Butter Election Looms). I can't believe that either, but there it is, written in military white papers for all to see.
The U.S. military keeps searching the horizon for a peer competitor, the challenger that must be taken seriously. Is it China? What about an oil rich and resurgent Russia?(The Enemy the Pentagon Should Fear Most: Health Care, National Defense Magazine, emphasis added). We have been pointing out this very strange ideology for a while now, using "MOMCOM" symbolism to isolate the militant energy fighting against the middle class and poor in the United States.
But the threat that is most likely to hobble U.S. military capabilities is not a peer competitor, rather it is health care.
I am very concerned that elements in and around the military are nuts, insane, yes, even criminally insane.
That is really not a stretch in the USA, because insanity in the form of dementia is a top ten killer of Americans.
In our etiology of dementia series we posted:
One post that ties the dynamics together is The Criminally Insane Epoch Arises.(Etiology of Social Dementia - 2). The military thinkers indicate that even though health care is sorely needed even for them, seeing as now they are committing suicide at record rates, health care is their greatest enemy.
In that regard, I must say that a piece in The New York Times caught my attention:
OUR government is ignoring what is likely to become the single greatest threat to the health of Americans: Alzheimer’s disease, an illness that is 100 percent incurable and 100 percent fatal. It attacks rich and poor, white-collar and blue, and women and men, without regard to party. A degenerative disease, it steadily robs its victims of memory, judgment and dignity, leaves them unable to care for themselves and destroys their brain and their identity — often depleting their caregivers and families both emotionally and financially.(The Age of Alzheimer’s, NY Times, emphasis added).
Guess where the political pundits, your friends, your co-workers, get their ideas that health care is bad?
