AUTHOR: Robin of Berkeley at The American Thinker
OPENING SCENE: Sorrowfully watching an "immaculately coiffed" elderly lady "dressed in her finest garb" disrespected by "an attractive 20-something-year-old, also decked out, but in a business suit" at a supermarket
WHAT SHE 'BEHELD IN THAT YOUNG WOMAN'S FACE': "Pure, unadulterated contempt"
WHICH REMINDS ROBIN OF WHY SHE HATES LIBERALS: Obama's "socialist health system" would make old people feel "worthless and like a burden," leading many more to commit suicide
'THE MESSAGE TO SOCIETY' UNDER OBAMACARE: Your life doesn't matter
WHAT LIBERALS DON'T UNDERSTAND: That they will one day be old and frail as well
WHAT ROBIN'S INDIAN CAB DRIVER HAS TO SAY ON THE SUBJECT: He'll probably return to India one day, since "it's better to be old" there
WHY IT'S BETTER TO BE OLD IN INDIA: Because the state doesn't take care of you, which means "we take care of each other"
THE CONCLUSION: Obama and his leftist friends don't care about the old and frail, sort of
like that supermarket girl. That's why they want to ration health care and subject the sick to 'death talks.'
