A friend just shared this picture along with the following explanation which seems so appropriate in light of the recent news which for some strange reason is making headline news as a great success story. Instead you would think they would be embarrassed about anyone knowing the results. That is the news indicating as the deadline for Obamacare reached its end yesterday the media reported as a “great success” that 7 million out of 314 million Americans (a whopping total of 2.2%) signed up for Obamacare!
Even if you figure in children to the equation the rate seems extremely low to me. It gives me hope that the 97.8% who did not sign up will have a greater rate of survival since there will not be a free ticket to drug them with anything (especially an antidepressant which seems to be the cure for anything that ails you) the doctor feels like prescribing.
I guess I am just having trouble figuring out how having 2.2% of the population sign up is being considered a success. Anyone want to explain that to me? In the meantime you will find the following very interesting and humorous……
CAN YOU NAME THIS OLD PHYSICIAN’S TOOL?
THOUGHT YOU WOULD ENJOY THIS EDUCATIONAL MOMENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY. GIVE IT A GUESS, THEN LOOK BELOW FOR THE ANSWER. HINT: USED BY A PHYSICIAN…
HINT: ITS A KIT… TOBACCO SMOKE ENEMAS (1750S-1810S). THE TOBACCO
ENEMA WAS USED TO INFUSE TOBACCO SMOKE INTO A PATIENTS RECTUM FOR
VARIOUS MEDICAL PURPOSES, PRIMARILY THE RESUSCITATION OF DROWNING VICTIMS.
A RECTAL TUBE INSERTED INTO THE ANUS WAS CONNECTED TO A FUMIGATOR AND
BELLOWS THAT FORCED THE SMOKE TOWARDS THE RECTUM. THE WARMTH OF THE SMOKE WAS THOUGHT TO PROMOTE RESPIRATION, BUT DOUBTS ABOUT THE CREDIBILITY OF TOBACCO ENEMAS LED TO THE POPULAR PHRASE “BLOWING SMOKE UP YOUR ASS”.
IT HAS BEEN REINTRODUCED IN WASHINGTON , BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE NEW HEALTH CARE PROGRAM, OBAMACARE.
