    STATE MENTAL INSTITUTIONS and
    STATE REST HOMES

    These town hall groups put their mentally disabled babies in these government run mental institutions, all across this country, for the government to take care of instead of taking care of them their selves.

    These town hall groups put their elderly parents in government run rest homes, all across this country, for the government to take care of instead of taking care of them their selves.

    And a host of other government run services they cannot do without.

    And they want government to “stay out of their lives”? This reinforces my belief that
    all this anger is not about socialized healthcare at all, because most of them already have it or will have it in the future.
    I rest my case.

    Funny. As far as I know there are no State run mental facilities to care long term for anyone. And the elderly are also not in State run Homes either. But hey if you actually dig us up some links to prove your point, I will look at it.

    Having been in and out of mental facilities from 95 to 2001 I know I had to pay for them and there was no State run facility for me to go to and let the State pay for it. Now I could go to the VA hospital but it is 90 miles away and I ended up with doctors that did not know me and could not help much.

    You're right.

    But don't expect people's minds to change just because you can prove to thgem beyond a shadow of a doubt that their facts are wrong.

    That isn't how it works once people get an idea in their heads.

    They cling to it regardless of how often reality tells them they're wrong.

    Now Lil here is of the opinion that we have huge numbers of people taken care of in state run hospitals.

    that hasn't been the case in over 30 years.

    But since she believes that's socialism, the fact that she's misinformed about what exists really won't change her opinion

    'These town hall groups put their mentally disabled babies in these government run mental institutions, all across this country, for the government to take care of instead of taking care of them their selves.'

    RE the above I have no clue - but, having worked in education for many years, I do know that many of the women who come and have their babies here from other countries, and especially from latin america, have had no prenatal care therefore their children are born with many learning disabilities and to educate them is very costly. I heard horror stories of how these countries refuse to educate these kids! So many parents who went back to their country, came back so that this country could educate these kids. Tragic but true.

    Do you remember when this was? I know there were institutions in the seventies, but I had heard they were all closed and many of these mentally ill ended up on the streets. Don't know about the whole country.
