Default Paradoxical Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."

Now add this, "Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."

Think about it when you vote in November !

I find it amusing that Ben Stien who is Jewish complains about a healthcare mandate for the US while Israel is basically a welfare state propped up by US taxpayers from their "free" healthcare to their military! Oy Vey!

I find it amusing that Ben Stein is slamming mandates when he supports Romney and... oh never mind, scratch that.

What does being an American jew have to do with Israel?
Let me guess...they all look the same to you?

I have to admit to being somewhat puzzled by what he was saying. Ben Stein was born in Washington, DC in 1944 and Israel was created in 1948.

Before we jump to the anti-semitic conclusion, let's give him the chance to explain himself.

Why is it amusing that a man born in Washington, DC believes something different than a state that was created several years after his birth, thousands of miles away on a separate continent?
