Today’s dumbass quote comes from a new commenter who has found Dispatches. He calls himself Captain Patriot, which I think gives you a clear indication of what we’re dealing with here. The quote that jumped out at me:
The latest thing i have seen as treason is the damned healthcare bill. It makes slaves out of us and no sane person seems to care.
Perhaps because only insane people agree with this idiotic statement. The healthcare reform bill may very well be a bad idea. But to claim that it is going to make a slave out of you is just plain stupid. After it passes (if it passes), you will not be a slave. And to claim that you will be is an insult to the millions of people who have been (and in parts of the world still are) slaves.
