Obama’s Orders: Turn Doctors Into Government Spies

President and would-be Dictator Obama once again tapped into his favorite tactic of oppression for the cessation of rights from the American people, the Executive Order, to attack gun ownership in the United States. However, do to that damnable enemy of his – the Constitution – Obama can’t directly ban guns in the way he would like. Instead he’s taking a roundabout path, which could result not only in the loss of legally owned firearms, but also in the release of what was formerly a protected matter of personal privacy (your health records) and the redefining of “sanity” as dictated by the federal government. Let’s look at a few pertinent orders and explore their intent, stated or otherwise and then sum it all up and tie it off with a bow.

- Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

Of course, with Obamacare, federal agencies are involved in quite a bit more of our lives than they would have been previously, but this could also include any local police force, Homeland Security, etc – an entire legion of government cronies who define what relevant means. Will a misdemeanor in your town for public urination may disqualify you for gun ownership? Will the government spooks decide that sharing an article on Facebook that criticizes FBI raids on Raw Milk farms constitutes “relevant” data that could label you as a danger in a background check? Who knows how far this could go.

- Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

So Obama wants to tear down these “unnecessary” legal barriers (protections for you and me) relating to the HIPAA, including Protected Health Information, which is supposed to be a completely private matter between you and your health practitioner.

So what?

President Obama, despite Republican obstruction, has passed free healthcare for all. He has also come out in favor of gay rights and women's rights, including the right to free contraception. I trust my government and my president. The only reason you right-wing fanatics care about stuff like the NDAA and gun control is because you probably all belong to militia groups, have swastikas in your bedrooms, and burn crosses in the woods when you're supposedly "hunting" (i.e. murdering innocent animals).

You all know that by clamping down on you gun nuts and passing the NDAA, my president now has the authority without the obstacles [oops, a liberal sheep couldn't be that poetic] of locking your racist, sexist, homophobic asses up in mental health facilities where you all belong.

All your data goes into

a computer. It has the effect of making everyone walk the fine line even in small matters, like buying raw milk. And that is called CONTROL of the people.

My doctor

is one of my best friends from growing up, but if he asked me how many guns I own I'd tell him to mind his own damn business.

Damn well right

But if you are going to a psychiatrist you may divulge that, thinking you are in a safe place.

Easier solution

Eat primal/paleo, get some exercise, and if you have mental problems smoke some herb.

They aren't coming for your guns

They aren't coming for your guns, they're coming for your mind.

Get yourself healthy, and stay the hell away from the medical-industrial complex.
