Man's Finger Bitten Off At Health Care Rally 23

Posted by samzenpus

A 65-year-old anti-health care reform protester had his finger bitten off during a fight with a pro-health care reform protester. Around 100 protesters were holding a health care reform rally when a group of anti-reform folks gathered on the opposite side of the street. A witness says a man walked through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old. It's good that we can have this debate in a calm, adult manner before we start biting off digits.

  • The problem with protest rallies is that they are primarily attended by brainwashed slogan-chanting fools with absolutely no ability to grasp the nuances of the topic at hand.

      That is an unfair generalization. It may be that every person but one at this event were reasonable, intelligent, "nuance-aware" people engaging in their right to peaceably assemble.

    The rally was about Obama's version of health care reform. Many people are opposed to THIS plan, yet still want a number of reforms.

    There have been several Republican bills submitted on health care reform, but without the votes in the House or Senate, it's purely a symbolic gesture.

      If anyone can tell me what's in THIS plan, I'll give them a cookie.

      Right now, I don't know what the hell we're all arguing about. I work in the healthcare field (I can tell you some stories about how absolutely monstrous the insurance companies are), have been paying close attention to this "debate", and I don't know what THIS plan or THAT plan contains. There's been some talk about a public option (which I hear is tantamount to replacing Congress with the Politburo) that's in some versions of the bill

        It's all about the Death Panels. Obama is pro-death panel. From what I've heard, in fact, he supports liquefying old people to feed intravenously to our young.

    I hope his health insurance will cover that.
