Only is an amazing word. It can actually make horrendous acts and deeds sound almost acceptable.
Indeed, ONLY 5% of Americans, give or take, have had their health care insurance policies canceled.
That's approximately five million policies and counting so far. So that's ONLY five million people. Oh, wait a second, there were also husbands, wives and children on some of those policies too. Ah...but ONLY on some of the cancelled policies. See, it's not so bad folks.
True, some of the people on those policies had chronic illnesses and or children with chronic illinesses,,, but once again, ONLY on some of those policies, It also looks like ONLY ninety million more people are going to lose their policies next year.
But why are these policies being cancelled in the first place?
It's really quite simple. People who think that they are far smarter than you or I and who think they know what is much better for us, then we do ourselves, have decided, to force the insurance companies to cancel these so called "substandard" policies.
It's not the first time people who thought they were smarter than the rest of the folks tried to save their lowly ignorant people from themselves,
There was that genius in Germany, back in the thirties and forties, who thought that it would make people's lives better if certain people were removed from society. He did it with ONLY six million, give or take, men, women and children, going to death camps.
Then there was that guy in Russia back in the thirties who tried to improve his society by starving ONLY eight million, give or take, of his people to death
...and of course...leave us not forget the genius in China whose "Great Leap Forward" cost the lives of ONLY ten million, give or take, of his people.
You see, folks as all geniuses know, when you wish to make everybody's life better, sometimes you have to sacrifice the lives of a few million people..or... rather should I say...ONLY a few million people.
