More Asinine Right Wing Fear Mongering In Investor's Business Daily

Investors Business Daily has a lovely editorial up now, promoting the crazier than crazy Obama's going to kill old people. meme. It is rife with the expected nutiness but as Jay Bookman Points out-- there is a real gem in there too which just makes the stupid in to art. (almost)

People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the U.K., where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless. IBD

of course as Jay points out-- that sounds pretty scary until you consider;
...that same Stephen Hawking who wouldn’t have a chance in the United Kingdom was in fact born in the United Kingdom, has lived his entire life in the United Kingdom and lives there still today, at the ripe old age of 67. (He was in fact hospitalized earlier this month.) Hawking is, you might say, living, breathing proof that these people are first-class fools.
