shit to come out of the badly flailing right wing is a gross misrepresentation of a small subsection of the Healthcare overhaul bill: Sec. 440.
Here's the text from the actual section of the bill (starting on pg. 837 for anyone playing along at home):
SEC. 440. HOME VISITATION PROGRAMS FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AND FAMILIES EXPECTING CHILDREN.
(a) PURPOSE.—The purpose of this section is to improve the well-being, health, and development of children by enabling the establishment and expansion of high quality programs providing voluntary
 home visitation for families with young children and families expecting children.( rest of sec. 400 behind the cut )
Now, any reasonable person would most likely interpret the above as clearly stating the intent to provide funds at the state level for the support of families, such that when a family with small children or children on the way feels like they need help, need some support, need some information and assistance, there's a program available that can provide that help. (Not that
, there are a lot of families out there struggling
, or with too little information or education to make good parenting decisions
and who could maybe use some help
However, this is being spun as -- wait for it, wait for it
-- yes, OBAMA wants to send GOVERNMENT THUGS into the private homes of good, God-fearing Americans to indoctrinate their children (presumably in the evil ways of Islam and liberalism.) I assume, for practical reasons, these will have to be different thugs than those going around pulling the plug on Grandma and Grandpa because socialized medicine for everybody means OLD PEOPLE MUST DIE!
This is a war against women and children. This is a race war. This is a class war. This is all about keeping people down and so brainwashed by increasingly-ludicrous hype and spin that they're grateful to be saved from having health care, saved from having jobs, saved from having breathable air or food that's not slathered in toxins, saved from having to ever fire up a neuron and think for themselves because someone in charge will tell them what to think, when to rise up and what to say when they do. Because here and now they've been convinced to rally against trying to reduce the incidence of children being neglected and/or abused
. Since when is that a controversial goal?
If people are really worried about thugs coming into their homes to indoctrinate themselves and their children, maybe they should turn Fox news THE FUCK OFF and go find an actual, non-partisan, facts-based news source. There still are a few out there.
 emphasis mine.
 I never want to have to look at, much less compile, links like those again.
 "liberalism:" an obscure, radical political and social position that advocates, among many other crazy things, treating children with love, care, and respect.
 and generally I feel that way towards my fellow human beings too, though right now I am Mightily Peeved at people who have been so obviously manipulated into loudly and rudely advocating against basic quality of life rights for other people (and sadly, themselves.)
After this, whenever there's a news story about some poor kid neglected or beaten to death and everyone is asking, "How could this happen? Why wasn't there anyone to help them?", these people can proudly raise their hand, waving their little plastic American flag that makes them feel oh so proud, and say, "It was me! I personally
helped that child have their opportunity to suffer and die!"
