Health care is complex — and more letters to the editors

Health care is complex

Hundreds of millions are being spent even early in the campaign year.

The lion’s share has been spent by the health insurance companies, health care providers, American Bar/banker associations, Chambers of Commerce and an endless array of their friends and associates. In their view, it is a good investment.

As a former public contract administrator of a self-insured organization, insurance matters seldom occurred.

But in one instance, it came to my attention we were entitled to an insurance claim of a large amount. Since we were involved in many activities, we had our own experienced legal staff. In order to efficiently process the claim, our legal staff chose an outside firm specializing in insurance.

The point of this is our economic and legal systems are infinitely complex, which by necessity, requires Obamacare tax laws to be complex to cover contingencies and loopholes.

If you vote Republican, consider the alternative.

Hurling insults at the president doesn’t represent a sound solution. You can be certain their plan may involve the need for you to hire a battery of attorneys to process your potentially large claim. And this will add administrative expense to the cost of your health coverage.

Society tolerates left’s agenda

Most Chattanoogans/Americans would claim to be the walking antithesis of Nazism, but how true is this claim?

Hitler tried to rationalize his genocide against Jews by telling himself they were subhumans, a non-uncommon tenet of our very culture. Some said the same about blacks pre-1865. We deprived women of the right to vote for a while.

Worst, we say the exact thing against the unborn, newly born, and the Terri Schiavos and go as far as murder.

No, America, we’re not “different.”

Ladies, that baby in your womb is no more your “property” than Jews were to Hitler or blacks were to plantation owners, and the liberal agenda has killed far more humans than Hitler did, and it, too, tries to rationalize (i.e. “choice,” “contraception,” “war on women,” and other lies and abuses of semantics), and we, collectively tolerate this sickening agenda and said rationalization attempts.

Hitler has little on the left in America.

RONALD MILLSAPS, Collegedale


Racism trumps patriotism

I never thought I would live to see a black man elected president (twice).

But I truly never thought that so-called patriotic Americans would be criticizing the president and gushing over a murdering, Communist bully.

Racism apparently trumps patriotism. Sad. Sad. Sad.

It's been a while since I've seen right-to-life ghouls brag about torturing Terri Schiavo.

Mr. Millsaps has never been pregnant, so he thinks that gives him license to make false analogies and spew venom. So easy for him to spout off about something he'll never have to deal with. Mr. Millsaps knows little to nothing of the thinking of women who must make a difficult decision about whether to abort an unwanted fetus. He's just a ranting hater, who does nothing to care for the babies when they are born. As Gloria Steinem once said, quoting Florynce Kennedy, "If men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."

Again the Christian fundamentalist pro-lifers have little grasp of science or history.

Hitler set up special Lebensborn for women to produced children for the Reich (similar to the Duggar family and Mormon Church, Quiverfull, and other groups).

Once these children were born the State cared for both children and mothers (unlike the pro-lifers policy of "Love the fetus but once born they're on their own").

As to Terri Schiavo, the pro-lifers had rather spend millions to keep a vegetable in the pretense of life to helping poor people with alive children needing assistance.

Such is the convoluted practices of pro-lifers,

Mr. Milsaps, you've got the left pegged alright. Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, workman's comp, 40-hr. work weeks, child labor laws, the Civil Rights Act, women's right to vote and be treated as equals, public education, our interstate highway system, the space program, the GI Bill, the Marshall Plan, clean air, clean water, our national parks, the Hoover Dam, the Tennessee Valley project, the initiative and funding to develop the internet....all are the result of evil liberalism and big bad government. Oh the scourge of this vile socialism! How did we ever go so far astray? Thank you for your astuteness in pointing this out to us. Hitlerian indeed!

I admit my shame in professing to be a liberal but you have made me see the light. Now I want to be free of these cumbersome freedom draining things. True individual freedom is what I want. Where do I go to sign up for the Tea Party? Do I need to bring my own tea bags...or will they be provided for me? And is a gun in a holster hanging from my belt necessary, or is that just considered a fashion accessory? I have seen the light now, Mr. Milsaps. Now, let's go kick some Nazi butt...er, I mean lefty butt!
