The Authorities Want Snitches

Perhaps you've seen the news today about the White House asking people to write in to report people circulating "fishy" information about health insurance reform proposals. The address to write is flag@whitehouse.gov. Here's mine:

SUBJ: Something fishy about health care

Hi, I just saw news reports about the White House call for email to report "fishy" information being circulated about health care. I've been hearing such information for about a half-year now. In fact, there are a number of people running the executive and legislative branches of government who want to spend us into oblivion and, at the same time, significantly reduce the quality of health care in the U.S. Since you guys are so close to the action, you might want to check out some of the people trying to ram through legislation that some (thoughtful) citizens view as socialized medicine. On the other hand, if anybody on the planet had actually *read* any of the 1000-page plans being circulated in Congress, the information wouldn't be so fishy.

I think you would agree that this is all very unfortunate. And un-American to boot. Anyway, this is my email and I'm snitching about fishiness.

You're welcome!

I reported my 85-year old Republican mother to flag@whitehouse.gov and asked them to "straighten her out". She said she was against euthanasia for the elderly in lieu of costly medical treatment.
