Well if you haven't been paying attention, America has gotten kind of nuts here lately. Basically here is what's happening, from what I can tell. Let me know if I'm getting this wrong, because it actually sounds kind of crazy. The government wants to provide health care for poor people, because in order for poor people to afford good health care, you'd need to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and also count on people to always make good decisions. Also being poor sucks, and there have to be poor people in order for this whole Capitalism thing to work.
This is not necessarily good for the health insurance companies (who you have to fight with sometimes to get them to cover basic stuff), since they'd sort of have competition. So people who make money from the status quo (and the people who didn't like Obama anyway) started convincing themselves and those who pay attention to them that the new health care program is going to be performing mandatory euthanasia on old people and things like that. And suddenly a lot of people believe that. Like, hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions. They don't get that if they want to, they'll still get to pay a thousand dollars a month for the same health care they got before. But now they might have to pay an extra couple bucks a year to help their less fortunate neighbors get kind of cruddy government care. And they have a HUGE PROBLEM with this.
Logic is not the name of the game in America and has not been for quite some time.
Anyway I updated the front page of TopatoCo, something that had been bothering me for a while! And Lucid John's gonna help me make it even more extreme now that he's in town. Now I can get other stuff done, like comics. TTFN!
