Yep, this is socialism and government-controlled health care and lots of other scary stuff

by Mike McFeely

Tuesday is when the so-called health insurance "marketplaces" or "exchanges" were scheduled to open.

This was the day Tea Partiers, conservatives and Republicans in general told us fear. This was the day when life as we knew it in these United States ceased to exist. It's when the 'gummint' was going to take over our lives and unleash death panels on our grandmas and grandpas and ... well, you get it.

It was going to be BAAAAD.

It was ... cue the ominous music ... the start of Obamacare.

To mark this ominous occasion, my wife's employer mailed out this letter to its full-time employees covered by the company's sponsored health insurance plan.

Read it only if you have the stomach to see our American values and morals eroded right before our very eyes.

Terrible, wasn't it? Nothing will change. We will continue to be covered by the company plan. We don't have to change a thing. Life goes on.

I figure maybe the black helicopters will come tomorrow. Or maybe the next day. I'll have to listen to Rush Limbaugh to find out exactly when.

Oh, the humanity.
