Healthcare and Hitler?

It is of course possible that you disagree with President Obama or any other politician. You can't agree with a politician for a thousand and one reasons. It doesn't even have to be about what he or she stands for. What is disturbingly annoying, however, is when you try to participate in a political discussion about policy while you can't really think yourself and don't know why you do what you do.

A certain amount of intellect is required to have a discussion. Even if the suit of the politician in question would be a thorn in your side or you would find his or her nose ugly, you should be able to focus on the content without getting personal. 

Not the case with this lady who likes to take part in a debate about health care when she doesn't know what she's talking about. With a photo of Obama made up with a Hitler mustache, she casually asks a Jewish gay politician why he supports President Obama's health care plan. Unfortunately for her, she had the wrong one in front of her.

Barney Frank has above average intelligence but just managed to drop to her level to answer her. First he answers her question with a reference to his ethnic background as a Jew and a second question: on which planet do you mostly live?

Holding a photo of the president, styled as Hitler, compare the plan to expand government health care to the Nazis. It's the toll we pay for free speech (1st Amendment) that this despicable vile nonsense is possible.

When she insists to answer her question, he says: madam, trying to have a conversation with you is like trying to have a conversation over a dinner table and I don't intend to.

Bareny Frank is my husband. Unfortunately, it is impossible to argue with some people.
