Joke of the day: Musical Video "One Single Payer System"

Brilliant take-off on the song "One" from "A Chorus Line" making fun of Obamacare's one-single-payer system. The lyrics are from the youtube site. Very clever.

One single payer system that's what we intend to get
One single payer system perhaps not all of it yet
Something that Bill and Hillary could not do
Well just abolish illness with you-know-who

One single payer system everybody gets their share
But well never have to ration care, no way son
Hell, folks he can heal the planet
Disease, well, well simply have to ban it
Cause hes the one

One single payer system like our neighbors the Canucks
One single payer system but ours will be real deluxe
In one fell swoop were solving the health care crunch
Who's says that we don't believe that there's no free lunch

One single payer system lets do it for Uncle Ted
Pretty soon hes dead, its time to get it done
This is change you can believe in
Trust me, you know we aint deceiving
Cause hes the one.

One single payer system might be kinda tough to sell
One single payer system wont leave it up to Michelle
Harry and Nancy you folks can calm your fears
And hell get coverage that will fix those ears

One single payer system covers every healthcare need
No time to read the bill just pass Obama Care
But it sounds a little socialistic
This pig is gonna need some lipstick

Obama as "The Joker"- Mystery Partially Revealed

When posters of Barack Obama Photoshopped to look like Batman's nemesis "The Joker" (with the word "Socialism" below the caricature) started being plastered all over Los Angeles, California and then around the country, no-one had a clue who was behind it. I'm sure people automatically assumed some right-wing, gun toting, middle-aged conservative was responsible, because anything that happens to be anti-Obama of course must originate from the the Republican camp. And although the mystery of who has been placing these posters nationwide still remains, well, a mystery, the L.A Times actually tracked down the person who initially created the graphics for Obama as The Joker, and it's definitely not who you would think it would be.

Firas Alkhateeb, a 20 year-old student of Palestinian descent, whose family lives in Chicago and who wanted Democrat Dennis Kucinich as President, admitted to the artwork, albeit in a different format. During his winter break, history major Firas, using Adobe Photoshop,

turned a Time magazine cover photo of Barack Obama into the nefarious Joker of the Batman series.

Firas then uploaded his work to Flickr (photo-sharing site) to share with friends, back in January. Someone then downloaded the photo, edited out the Time Magazine graphics and added "Socialism" to the mix. Although we can guess what political affiliation the perpetrators of the "socialism" version have, we can't assume so. After all, not all Democrats voted for Obama and many are becoming increasingly disillusioned.

Firas was not thrilled with Obama so he did not vote last November.

"After Obama was elected, you had all of these people who basically saw him as the second coming of Christ," Alkhateeb said. "From my perspective, there wasn't much substance to him."
And though he prefers the Democrats in terms of foreign policy, he admitted he agrees more with Republicans on domestic policy.

So, although he isn't a full-fledged liberal, he is a Democrat. Hopefully people will stop assuming that only conservatives are critical of Obama.
