Scenario #1: Current Fast Food Practices
Smirk: Yes, umm, I’ll have a number one with a diet coke. No onions on the burger. Biggie up the the fries please.
McDonalds: Thank you, please drive around for your total.
Scenario #2: Obama’s Fast Food Plan
Smirk: Yes, Ummm, I’ll have a number one. But first, exactly what is a number one?
ObamaBurger: We don’t know yet, but you’re going to love it!
Smirk: Can you tell me at least if its a burger or chicken or something?
ObamaBurger: We’ll iron out all those details later. Just stop being afraid!
Smirk: Can I get a diet coke with that?
ObamaBurger: That we can probably do! Diet definitely. Might not be coke though. But we do definitely offer diet drinks! Although further research with has shown that “diet” drinks might possibly be bad for you, so we will have to get back to you on that.
Smirk: Do I have to get fries or do you have other sides?
ObamaBurger: Don’t know that either, but did you know that McDonald’s had a salmonella outbreak in Buttfuck, Florida in 1987?
Smirk: No! Holy shit!
ObamaBurger: Yes. Very tragic. We are in crisis mode.
This is not to say that I’m against healthcare reform or what Obama is trying to accomplish, but c’mon dude, at least give us some apples to work with so we can compare apples.
Asking people to blindly choose some “plan” that you have yet to provide contractual details on, just as my current insurance provides me with a contract of what is and what is not covered, is insulting.
