DUCK AND COVER (1951): THE 1950’s VERSION OF OBAMACARE COMMERCIALS

The government would NEVER steer us wrong, right?

The government would NEVER steer us wrong, right?

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that offers truly non-partisan criticism of those fanatics called Liberals and Conservatives.

Remember the 1951 short Duck and Cover? It was U.S. government propoganda trying to allay fears about the truly catastrophic consequences of a nuclear war. The title came from the inane pretense that if “the bomb” went off the populace could survive it by ducking under desks or other furniture. Uh. Yeah. Makes that “nuking the fridge” scene in the last Indiana Jones movie look credible by comparison.

Here we are decades later and the government STILL shoves idiotic propoganda down our throats. This time around we’re being sold on the unpopular, unwanted, unhelpful mess called Obamacare. NONE of Little Barry Obama’s promises about it has been the truth, but he’s spending billions of tax dollars propogandizing us about it just like the government in the 50’s pushed the notion of “survivable” nuclear war.

I would detail all the disastrous elements of Obamacare but I was beaten to it by THIS masterful presentation: http://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/obamacare-59/
