Daily Kos :: Sen. Angus King: Far-right Obamacare opponents ‘guilty of murder’

As a person whose entire life has been altered, restricted and arguably stolen by disabling illness untreated for decades due to lack of access to healthcare I can really relate to this article.

Do far right radicals really believe my entire life is worth less than money?

That society when it removes the ability to live as our ancestors did which kept us healthy, then has no responsibility to provide health care within the model of society that now completely dominates the land where I live?

Do they really believe in their hearts that some people genuinely*deserve* to suffer pain, disability and death for the “crime” of being born into poverty, or in some way unable to earn enough money to pay huge sums for healthcare?

I am confused about what people believe on this because many claim to be Christian followers of Jesus; who said “Whatsoever you do unto the least of my brothers this you do unto me”.

Could He have been more clear in saying we are all One and practicing love and compassion for all was something He expects us to do?

For many years I felt that most people in America truly wished people like me to die.

I learned that from the actions and rhetoric around things like poverty, healthcare, foodstamps, the ADA and also the pervasive attitude (Million Dollar Baby anyone? ) that it is BETTER to be DEAD than profoundly disabled.

So if you oppose the ACA/Obamacare please realize what message you are sending to impressionable children like I once was.

I am not lazy but I worry every day about not being productive enough-as if simply being is not enough.

Did God create me with a work contract? Am I in violation because I was exposed to toxics as a child which destroyed my health?

I know God didn’t give me this demand that insidiously drains my confidence and joy and causes me to question my value as a human being.

This obviously flawed belief grew from the culture that told me people who don’t work hard enough deserve to starve, do without and die.

How can people who promote those ideas call such a culture the land of the “FREE”?

How free are we if failure to be a good slave makes us worthless?

Sen. Angus King: Far-right Obamacare opponents ‘guilty of murder’
by Joan McCarter Sep 30, 2013 1:58pm PDT
Sen. Angus King

Sen. Angus King (I-ME) has some harsh words for those who would tell young people that a political principle is more important than having health insurance.

“That’s a scandal—those people are guilty of murder in my opinion,” Sen. Angus King, a Maine Independent who caucuses with Democrats, told me in a Friday interview. “Some of those people they persuade are going to end up dying because they don’t have health insurance. For people who do that to other people in the name of some obscure political ideology is one of the grossest violations of our humanity I can think of. This absolutely drives me crazy.”

King speaks from experience.

Forty years ago, when King was 29 years old, he was provided health insurance as a staffer for then-Sen. Bill Hathaway, D-Maine, and for the first time in a decade went to a clinic for a checkup.“I had a health policy that included in it a free annual physical as a part of the policy and they had evening clinic hours. And I wouldn’t have taken the day off — and if that hadn’t been covered under the insurance there’s no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have gone to have the checkup,” King said.

“It was a routine checkup and the doctor found this mole, and I went in a week later to have the stitches out. The doctor told me I’d better sit down and that I had melanoma…. A month later I found myself having every cancer test you could imagine. Ultimately I had a fairly major surgery. The point of the story is that without the surgery I would have died.”

You know that none of the guys at Heritage Action or FreedomWorks would tell their own children to go without health insurance. They know as well as Sen. King that it’s foolish to go without that protection when you can afford otherwise. But. They. Don’t. Care.

As far as they’re concerned, the people they’re telling to burn their fake Obamacare cards could live or die. It doesn’t really matter. They’re not likely to be voting Republican any time soon. That’s why they don’t particularly care about the people who they would allow to go hungry with their massive food stamp cuts. They’re not voters. And they sure won’t be campaign contributors. As far as Republicans are concerned, most of America is expendable.

ENDING THE MONEY PARADIGM

Thank you for posting this and for sharing this info in different forms over time. Learning not only so much new info but also the process if unlearning the untruths and manipulations that coerced the majority if humanity into colonized life destroying worldviews and systems takes time and repetition, as well as a desire for freedom.
As Starhawk showed in the novel “The Fifth Sacred Thing”, and the Crimethinc collective illustrated beautifully in their “Fighting for Our Lives”-a person who is free internally is free externally. A people who refuse to be controlled are ungovernable. No amount of spying, manipulation or even violence and incarceration can make free people slaves for too long.
The former Soviet bloc countries, Africa, South America and indigenous groups worldwide are living examples of this. 500 years of genocide, rape, violence, oppression and manipulation against indigenous peoples in the Americas, Africa, India and the South Pacific have resulted in those areas being the intellectual and spiritual hotbeds of resistance and creative solutions.
From Vandana Shiva and Wangari Maathai to Eduardo Galeano and Winona LaDuke and from Argentine Horizontalism to the marriage of traditional and postmodern ideas and methods of farming, community and reslience in the villages of India the people MOST subject to the cabal’s methods of violence and control are the ones LEAST controlled and most free in their minds, spirits and actions.

The manuscript of survival – part 361

Thank you, Aisha!

aisha north

By now, most of you have gotten used to being knocked about by these interrupting rounds of energetic upheavals, and hopefully, you have even gotten to understand the benevolent nature of this barrage. We know fully well that to many of you, the barrages themselves are nothing to be pleased about, as they seem to misbehave as soon as they connect with your body. But still, the unpleasantness they may cause will never outweigh all of the beneficial value these messengers of light come laden with, and as such, we gather that most of you have quietly acquiesced to these rounds by now.

For what they really do, apart from setting your body in a more or less constant state of upheaval, is to rewire your entire organism in such a way, none have seen the likes of this ever before. We know that you have already gotten quite a…

Balsamic Moon Phase: release, heal, prepare, transform

Moon: Leo/Virgo

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi (with Matangi)

Today’s photograph is of a river rushing over rocks because the energy is like the rapids of a rushing river. Our goal today is to paddle around the rapids. We will go another way where the river is smoother. This means we will need to maintain a strong, steady course and not be diverted into the chaos. We are watching chaos trying to be pushed into the collective mindscape, but today we are changing this rushing river into a calm course. We do this because we follow the line of truth that honors creation, loves life, and upholds the principles of freedom – most importantly freedom of consciousness.

We aren’t fooled by attempts to get everyone into mental and emotional states of discord. We knew that systems of power and control would begin to throw a tantrum once Shodashi’s wave was delivered. Shodashi and her trusty cohort Matangi are stepping back now, as is always the case during Balsamic Moon phase. Recall that Balsamic Moon phases are the time of the lunar cycle that are “between time.” Balsamic phase is part of both the last month and the next month. It is the Moon phase when the fields of our minds are refreshed to prepare for a new imprint of energy at the upcoming New Moon.

Balsamic Moon phase is also the most magical time because the energy is more nebulous and malleable. It’s a massively creative energy. The veils between the worlds (dimensions, space-time) are thinnest and the powers of imagination are highest. The mindset during Balsamic Moon phase is what prepares us for the next lunar month.

So we are not going to fertilize the field of consciousness with feelings of fear and chaos that will be siphoned off to try and mold a new world based on these things. We understand that a reformation – a renaissance – is occuring and that we are supported and fortified in our hearts to continue forward. We remain while those things sourced in fear and control fall.

I’ve mentioned that we have several windows of time during October where Archontic forces will show out. From September 23, 2013’s report:

“The key dates areOctober 1 – 2, 4-5, 11-12, and 14 -15. Note that the New Moon in Libra begins October 4 – right in one of these windows. The month of the Libra New Moon is going to be very dramatic in the world at large. Forces that were disempowered by the Wisdom Goddesses’ wave (from Shodashi, Kali, and Tara) will rush to make moves with whatever power they have left.”

The only mission today is to maintain centeredness with nature (the planet herself) and witness. Stay grounded and emotionally connected. Direct a smooth course, not a rushing rapid. In this mission we are united.

Cobra Update 9-27-13… “Planetary Situation Update: The New Financial System”

Thank you for posting this. I agree that truly clearing all the negatives is important. Attempting to change things without that is like giving a still oozing plague victim clean bed linens and nothing else-does not resolve the real problem. In the long run it really dies not even matter if any of these messengersis “right” or for real. What matters is that more and more people are focusing their intentions and actions together on certain overriding positive outcomes.
A laser is simply coherent light-it is focused tightly together so that it can perform work. Scattered light allows us to see the beauty around us, a ruby laser of focused light can cut thru a thick steel door.

Archangel Michael: Welcome to This Time of Re-Awakening – Part 1

Thank you for posting this! It is very reassuring to read the reasoning behind the directive to purchase currency. As Daniel Quinn pointed out in Ishmael there really is no “One Right Way to Live”. For those who have not yet been able to disentangle their ideas about abundance from money perhaps intermediate steps will be helpful. What most moved me tho( other than the brilliant bit about the pointlessness of borders!) was the idea thst people holding the energy of stability for Iraq, fir the currency reval to be a mechanism for focusing the desire if many on stability, peace and abundance for the Iraqi people is beautiful. I’m not sure if practically speaking it will really work that way for the Iraqi people but it is a good thought to hold. I do not understand the dong reval tho as Vietnam has long been fairly stable and productive despite coping with the toxic residue of war. I only hope that no one waits for this reval to begin projects to improve our world. Yes, money can make things easier to do but what really builds the new world, the “5d” world is in acting as if we are there. When we make connections, work together and use our creativity we can move forward without having to obtain vast sums first.
Look at Yes! Magazine, or old whole earth review magazine/web site ir the Whole Earth Catalogs. Look at hopegirl’s blog here on wordpress, and many other positive futures sites like Transition Towns and permaculture groups- there are so many projects moving forward already with only people power! Getting outside the mental box of money based society is a wonderful feeling and it frees you to create on another level.
The connections and community we create to implement solutions are themselves part of the solution. And if you have a really great idea that absolutely requires money to proceed-there is always kickstarter!
