"Background Checks"? Really?

In the good ol' days, when Uncle Joe and his descendant-in-crime Nikki Khrushchev ruled the Fatherland, there were lots and lots and lots and lots of 'psychiatric cases' sent off to the Gulag in Siberia.

Ask Solzhenitsyn.

Well.  By co-incidence, there's another "psychiatric cases" gambit in play.  And Guess Who is playing the card?

Secretary Kathleen "ObamaCare" Sebelius - and her Department of Health and Human Services - has promulgated regulations which would, by executive fiat, waive all federal privacy laws and encourage you doctor to report you to the FBI.

Understand a couple of things:  First, the standard which your doctor would use to turn you in is embodied in Clinton-era ATF language and in the anti-gun Veterans Disarmament Act of 2007. Specifically, you doctor would "drop a dime" on you if he suspected you were even a slight "danger to yourself of others" or were "unable to manage your financial affairs.

My twiddlefanny Lefty readers will be horrified--HORRIFIED--that the comparison was made.  But 'scuse me:  it's too obvious to ignore.
