Bottom line:If this story was even true and not just a tall tale to make a point about the American health care system:Is the boot still on?How does your foot feel?You can claim indigency, you know, and they still have to treat you.

I may have to roll across the parking lot in an office chair just to burn the place down.I have enjoyed your references to Manhunter and Silence of the Lambs lately. The comment about lotion very clever too.But you are dodging the questions here.Last night I gave the story a 50-50 chance of veracity, but it was fun to live through the drama, even if it was really just a set up for a Government Morality Lesson by farmer.

QuoteOriginally posted by: trackstarI have enjoyed your references to Manhunter and Silence of the Lambs lately.I don't know any Manhunter. Unless it is some B movie I saw a rerun of in the '80's and I don't even remember where I got the phrase. My memory of everything I have ever said or heard has a few holes up there starting around 1993.Yeah, of course I leaned over and trashed the right side of my motorcycle and my foot. The only thing to speculate about is what day it actually happened, or what day it will happen.

Manhunter is set in Florida and there is a scene where a tabloid journalist rolls across a parking garage in an office chair in flames after being abducted by the serial killer.He has only been released to bear a message to the police and he dies in the hospital.In your version, the message might be: "Free health care for all, but no new taxes!"

I think farmer should call Ron Paul. He seems to think there is plenty of charity out there for people with no insurance.

What a fucking day, I think I'm also in troubles. My foot in a boot got stucked in Fermion's ass. Does anybody know when these fagot docs will split cut his ass from my foot? I assume this procedure is covered by Obamacare.

Dude you have to stop posting this stuff about Fermion. I start laughing loudly in the office and people are beginning to think that I am nuts.

QuoteOriginally posted by: Fermionthere is plenty of charity out there for people with no insurance.You people are crazy with the insurance thing. It is because of insurance that these idiots run through your money like water. Insurance is not the solution, it is the problem. It is going to be not just some poor dude, but the entire nation that needs charity when you are done with it.

QuoteOriginally posted by: CrashedMintSo it's just about money? Man, I thought you were talking liberty.Freedoms involving money are the ones I like most. But I know you think making money is a sin, whereas producing nothing of value and blowing through someone else's money like water is the measure of a free society.

QuoteOriginally posted by: trackstarGet some one to drive you to the hospital right now and let them extract your foot from the boot.Do not do this yourself, even if you are not feeling much pain yet. Good luck.I would do exactly what Mom TS suggests, hoping I'll get a kiss for being a good boy.
