Inform on thy neighbor, please


www.whitehouse.gov

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.go

This is mortifing!! tattle on thy neighbor...wow. I heard about this today, couldn't believe it was true and went to the site. I'm absolutely mortified, the White House wants to be informed on my "casual conversations"? It reminds me so very much of Nazi Germany. I'm at a loss at this point, the Government's intimidation techniques are eroding my drive to speak out against it on minute, then the next I become mad at myself for fearing it.

It only states if you get an email or see something on the web that is fishy then report it.It does not even state report casual conversation.

The reason why it is bad is because they said causal conversations. IE, anything that the government views as not true should be reported.

The blog post alone has contradictory content to the bill. SO if they can't get their facts right, how can one trust them to know who is not speaking right and who is?

It is, at it's core, experimental double think.

Wow, I always wanted to go to Germany. Never realized I would wake up in 1939 Nazi Germany... while still in North America.

This makes me just want to smack every ignorant OS perpetuater. It is where this whole mess originated.

So let's say somebody sends in or reports something fishy, what then?

Are they going to open up an investigation?, label somebody?, Prosecute? Take away somebody's Kool-aid?

Doesn't spell out why they want it or what they are going to do with the reports.

Fishy it is!

All they need to do is come on ATS and they will have many viewpoints to sift through. Unless the intention is to get used to people ratting each other out? Or, maybe they want to find out who is perpetuating these inaccurate facts, which lobbying group?

To tie this into a recent news story, it's hysterical that the woman who 'got involved' by calling 911 on a possible break-in was demonized in the media yet our own government calls on us to tattle on anyone critical of Obama's health care proposal.

Hypocrites!

Sounds to me like they're talking about anyone bad-mouthing health care reform at all (ie.......most anyone who can read), and that's pretty worrisome when it's coming from the WH.

Peace

It makes no difference. If we interpret it your way, the government still wants you to report what others say in their causal conversations. Still privacy violation.

That wicked looking woman on that video just adds to the story line. Looks like she is ready to tear somebody apart.

Well, that's just an invite to send email there to inform the how fishy the health care reform is.

then it goes on to say "If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov"
does not say anything about casual conversation.Once again you are just reading what you want to read and not the whole thing.
