Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Freeper “civility lecture” Edition

Good Monday morning, and happy 2010, everybody!

There’s been a lot ofsturm und drang over at Moron Junction about how the bad old libs were mean-mouthing their Godhead Rush Limbaugh when he was admitted to a hospital with chest pains.

Everyone suit up, let’s go in to the entry, and I’ll offer my rebuttal.

blockquote>Folk-rocker Vic Chesnutt dies in Ga. at 45 (Barf Alert ending!)

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Vic Chesnutt, the folk-rocker whose sometimes dark
reflections on life were influenced in part by a car wreck that left
him paralyzed, has died. He was 45.
Family friend Christina Stuckey, who answered the phone at Chesnutt’s
home, confirmed the death to The Associated Press. Chesnutt’s record
label, Constellation Records, said in a statement on its Web site that
Chesnutt died on Christmas Day, Friday.

I really don’t know who this guy was, but the kicker to the whole story came in the last few paragraphs:

However, Chesnutt had recently struggled with a lawsuit filed by a
Georgia hospital after he racked up surgery bills totaling some
$70,000, the Athens newspaper reported. He said he couldn’t afford more
than hospitalization insurance and couldn’t keep up with the payments.

The problems baffled his Canadian bandmates, Chesnutt said.

nowhere else in the world that I’d be facing the situation I’m in right
now. They cannot understand what kind of society would inflict that on
their population,” he said. “It’s terrifying.”

Did the
Canadian health system take care of this guy all these years? If it was
soooooo wonderful, WHY did he get treated HERE in the USA (with it’s
‘terrifying’ health care system) instead of GOING TO CANADA FOR FREE

Oh – I don’t know. Maybe it’s becauseHE WASN”T CANADIAN, you dumb prick??

I would’ve sent his sorry, socialist behind to Cuba. They’d take care of him (euthanasia) free there.

In the article there’s a quote from him about “sensitive punk rockers”…

Sensitive to what? Needles larger than 22 gauge?

Well – there you have it. If someone who calls themselves “junkyarddawg” hasn’t heard of you, you couldn’t have been very important. (And as for the rest of his acumen: 58.09% of the people inAthens-Clarke County, GA are registered as Democrats. 40.26% areregistered Republican. This is obviously some new use of the term “Almost all”.)

At least the fellow had the good sense to criticize
the American health care system before he died, finally guaranteeing
himself some press attention.
Heck, he may even win a Grammy & be inducted into the American
Music Hall of Fame next year.

    LOL! Like saying G-d would support stealing money, creating Death Panels, and destroying the greatest health care system in the world.
    It’s simply amazing how often God says the same thing as we do and likes us best.

  2. Athenae says:

    What a time to be un-enthused, makes no sense to me but keep on rockin’ in the free world.
    Neil Young called, he said you’re a DICK.
    BAILEY! Ptooie!

  3. virgotex says:

    So Chesnutt is someone these neanderthals have never heard of, yet god forbid they miss a chance for a pile-on to trash him after his death.
    Ironically, had he not been in that accident as a young man, by his own admission he’d have probably ended up just another dumb redneck lowlife.

    [The whole Chesnutt and Ted Kennedy thing]

    I wanted to make a snarky comment, but that’s just so sick I can’t even laugh at it. The iso suit hasn’t been built that can keep that sickness out.

    Then the fun begins. Hopefully the popcorn dispensers in your iso suits are working correctly, because here we go! [Tommy T]

    Yes! This is what I come here for. But what’s this about popcorn dispensers in iso suits? Have I got the old beta 0.1 version, all wrapped about with duct tape? And are there beer dispensers as well? That would explain a lot.

    Damn …how stupid can you be. [December 24, 2009 2:00:06 AM by Snurple (VEGETARIAN, OLD INDIAN WORD FOR BAD HUNTER.)]

    A question that has perplexed students of the Freeperati since time immemorial. How stupid can they be? Every time we think we’ve found a new low we are proven wrong. Just like climate change, we’re obviously just making stuff up.

    To: Snurple
    How stupid am I? Who the hell do you think you are talking to? [Thursday, December 24, 2009 2:07:40 AM by allmost]

    A Freeper? I thought we just discussed that. There’s no knowing how stupid you are.

    Freepers? Any thoughts? Or in lieu of thoughts, any insane gibbering rants? [Tommy T]

    I’m beginning to doubt they’re even capable of rising to the level of insane gibbering rants.
