Latest tighty righty panty-fest

Tighty rightys get their panties in an uproar over the proposal to have a centralized medical records repository so that your medical records can follow you to whatever doctor you visit. "Libruls want your medical records! Big brother!" Wow, where were these privacy advocates when the NSA was listening on all our phone calls?!

In any event: The Feds can already get your medical information any time they want/need it. THese morons apparently have never heard of the Medical Information Bureau, which gets an update every time you file an insurance claim and gives your medical information to the feds, well, anytime they ask nicely, no subpoenas or shit needed because they claim your medical information is their property that they can do anything they want with it.

Oh wait, the MIB is a PRIVATE business violating your privacy, so they don't count as Big Brother. Well, not if you're a tighty righty moron, anyhow. Alrighty, then!

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
