Making Statements

Via a Facebook friend comes this story out of Florida. Seems like a medical specialist has decided to exercise his rights of freedom to associate, freedom of speech and the free market to make his sentiments on Obamacare known in no uncertain terms. He's advised Obama and "healthcare reform" supporters to take their business elsewhere. He doesn't want their monetary support and is willing to forgo having them as customers, as is his right. I do have to wonder, tho if he's taking this to its logical conclusion. If he's against socialised medicine does he still accept Medicare and Medicaid? They're are just as damaging as Obamacare and worked as the cornerstones for the latest depredation. I am glad to see that someone does understand the concept of shunning, tho. It's something we could all do that loses us nothing in the long run. If we all practiced it the world would be a much nicer place and people would have to either change or face the prospect of their neighbours refusing to associate with them.
MOUNT DORA — A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care "elsewhere."

"I'm not turning anybody away — that would be unethical," Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

The sign reads: "If you voted for Obama … seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years."
