Stephen Hawking would be dead if he were British.

Stephen Hawking both British and not dead

Obama health reform critics face inconvenient truth

By Cade Metz in San Francisco

Posted in Odds and Sods, 12th August 2009 21:13 GMT

Expert analysis, debate and answers – The Register Agile Data Center Summit

In perhaps the most amusing effort to discredit US President Barack Obama's plan for nationalized health care - if not the most ridiculous - US financial newspaper Investor's Business Daily has said that if Stephen Hawking were British, he would be dead.

"The controlling of medical costs in countries such as Britain through rationing, and the health consequences thereof, are legendary," read a recent editorial from the paper. "The stories of people dying on a waiting list or being denied altogether read like a horror script...

"People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the UK, where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless."

The paper has since been notified that Hawking is both British and still among the living. And it has edited the editorial, acknowledging that the original version incorrectly represented the whereabouts of perhaps the world's most famous scientific mind. But it has not acknowledged that its mention of Hawking misrepresented the NHS as well.

"I wouldn’t be here today if it were not for the NHS," Hawking told The Guardian. "I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived."

The best you can say about Investor's Business Daily is that unlike US radio talk host Rush Limbaugh, it has not compared Obama's health care logo to a swastika.

You gotta love it when journalists are too lazy to get even the basic facts right.

The story is still interesting. It will remain so as long as bull and lies are spread to preserve the irresponsible, immoral and unsustainable status quo.

Interesting to see people from SC post articles like this and make moronic comments like you lie to the president. Was this not the initial state to join the confederates?

After all, when it comes to a state renowned for intelligence and health care, I think South Carolina.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, the 400 richest American households earned a total of $US138 billion, up from $US105 billion a year earlier. That's an average of $US345 million each, on which they paid a tax rate of just 16.6 per cent.

No offense, not sure you read the article? I don't disagree. Joe Wilson is an embarrassment to the state (he was long before his outburst the other night), as is the governor, as is the statue of "Pitchfork" Ben Tillman (who advocated killing African Americans to prevent them from voting) also still featured prominently on the State House grounds. I'm happy to live in one of the only blue counties here, and there is a lot I love about my home state, but most of what hits the national news these days makes everyone I know cringe.

You're right! My apologizes.

I automatically assumed not another bunch of bullcrap. I'm so used to people pulling ###### out of their azz, that I automatically assume everyone is doing it.

Sorry, knee jerk reaction. Stupidity deserves stupidity. After all, it's the only communication protocol this individual will comprehend.

Almost like a natural reflex, something stupid comes out of your mouth before you have even thought of speaking. Before the appropriate neurons have even fired for your brain to think; in this case type. Like any yank republican, you cannot make a legitimate argument so you fire off bullcrap. Like bricks kill people too arguments. Wankers. Too bad this obsession with guns does not actually translate to Olympic medals for shootings.
