The Big Dick Cheney Gets a New Heart

    He voted against healthcare reform, helped Bush destroy this country and he gets a new heart. Now someone has to wait longer for a heart transplant because of this assh**e. Feel free to comment or make a list of a person(s) who needs a new heart more than Dick.

      And this is relevant to which side of hate? How long was he on the waiting list? How does his wife feel about it? How would his children feel when he dies? Does he experience regret? Do you know his heart? (no pun intended). Until you walk in his shoes, don't judge. Forgiveness is always better and when your time comes, you may receive the same.

      You know, Paul, there is a difference between seeking healthcare reform and turning our medical industry into a government entity. Maybe Cheney recognized what you want to ignore as you seek to make the government central to everything in our lives. Just maybe Dick Cheney believed that the government had no place in medicine or in interjecting itself into every aspect of individual life.  If you truly want healthcare reform, do something to get the lawyers and their frivilous lawsuits out of the courtroom...you just might lower the costs of medicine at the individual level.  You might note that all the lawyers in Washington who shoved ObamaCare down our throat ignored that need in creating this sham of healthcare reform. Maybe you'll feel the same way when Barney Frank needs a heart or liver or possibly Harry Reid is in dire need to stave off the end of his evil life.  I fnd it rather disgusting that you would allow politics to be the determining factor in whether or not an individual with a bad heart deserves a transplant. Maybe this is the leading edge of the atttitude which has been associated with ObamaCare from the start.  WB

        I, along with 80% of the US population simply don't like the guy. Actually government ran healthcare is much more efficient than the private sector. In England, their healthcare system spends about $2300 per year, per patient where our US insurance companies spend well over $8000. This is simply because government ran services do not have to advertise or make a profit. We're paying a boatload of dollars for healthcare and recieving very little in return.

          I can absolutely agree with you on the outrageous and often unnecessary costs of medical care in the U.S. I wonder if part of the low cost in England is because most of them are still on line waiting to get taken care of LOL. But seriously, we need to pay attention to taking care of ourselves instead of trying to fix our bodies after the fact, IMO.

            The biggest complaint in England is a waiting list for non emergancy care. They recently brought it down from a year to 18 weeks. But the World Healthcare Ranking lists France #1, Italy #2, United Kingdom #18 and the US at #37 (between Slovenia and Costa Rica). Whoo hooo!

      Well, I do agree with most of the comments that politics/whether we like someon shouldn't come into play when deciding whether or not to save someone's life.... On the other hand, Dick Cheney had a HEART???

      "Big Dick" as you people have chosen to refer to him as, was reported to be on the list for 20 months, almost two years. I hardly think that qualifies as being on the top of the list.

        rllebert00-I did not know he had been on the waiting list so long.  My bad-and I do apologize for jumping to such a conclusion.  I do not like Cheney's politics, but as a human being, I wish him no harm.

        I consider myself an extremely far-left individual, Socialist, perhaps, but if Cheney needed that heart, he must have needed it desperately.  I am glad he got it, if only for humanitarian purposes.

        As for the man's politics, well, you must know what I think!!!

          I agree that if he needed a new heart he should have one, providing there was no unfair queue jumping. And anyway, the possibilities are endless. Perhaps a new heart will infuse some compassion into the man. wink

    Maybe having a new heart will change his perspective on what is important.
    After all, regardless of one's beliefs, we are all human.

    I'm a bit disappointed by people's comments- He's a human being and regardless of his policies that you dislike, have some compassion. He waited for 20 months for a heart just like anyone else.

    If he were your father- even if you disagreed with him- would you want him to die? I dislike Joe Biden, but if he needed an organ transplant, I would wish him well and hope he gets one safely.

      Uninvited Writerposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      I actually agree. I am not a Cheney fan but I don't believe in others deciding who deserves a transplant or not.

      That being said, he recently turned down a speaking engagement in Canada because he said he was worried about security. Obviously it was because he was on a waiting list for a heart.

    I have no sympathy for this cretin!  When Cheney asked Richard Clark--longtime security adviser for many presidents--about the possibility of Iraq being responsible for 911 Clark replied "Iraq?  They had nothing to do wit the attack!"

    Cheyney replied, "Yes, but they have better targets"!  How many hearts were destroyed in that little Cheney fiasco?  mad

    He may have been given a new organ, but it doesn't come with compassion, empathy or any of those traits that makes one a leader or a statesmen. 

    He's the one reason I hope there's a God who'll settle the score with arrogant men of power for all of the sacrificed innocents on this planet.  It's been estimated that the 20th Century had over a billion deaths resulting from war.  What kind of egotistical insanity caused it?—Cheney is a perfect example of it!

    What a loss! I can find a better use for his new heart! As a warmonger, he doesn't deserve a sweet death after all the crimes he committed!

      What the man deserves is not up to us, but 'what you sew, so shall you reap,'  or, as I prefer to say, 'what goes around, comes around.'  Maxoxam41, I don't think he'll do well.  Not at all.

  11. recommend1 profile image71
    recommend1posted 4 years ago

    What the man deserves is what he has dished out to countless people and families around the world for his own personal gain.  Arraignment as the war criminal that he is would be more suitable than prolonging the life of this evil man.

    1. lorlie6 profile image85
      lorlie6posted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Now THAT, recommend1, I completely agree with.  I look forward to, but do not expect, that arraignment.  He will get away with his crimes if history does in fact repeat itself.

    Andre de Guerinposted 4 years ago

    In all fairness, Cheney is no more or less entitled to a transplant than anyone else, case in point Steve Jobs had to wait months for his new liver.
    In fact if the organ matches then it is likely to be used on the nearest patient rather than the patient in most need, due to the time window issue.
    Hearts have a "half life" measured in hours, because of the ischaemic damage that results from prolonged stoppage.

    This is one of the big problems with organ donation, many perfectly good organs get wasted every day because hospitals aren't equipped for matching and/or harvesting.

    What are you worried about Dick Cheney for . . . you wanna-be Gomez? Get off of your dead ass and get involved in some positive change in your own community. Otherwise, just sit in the corner and play with yourself. You'll accomplish as much, and it will feel better.

      The same could be said of some of those who seem to live in the political forums attacking everything liberal...

      It's hard to ignore Cheney when he won't go away.

      You have no idea what people are doing in their real lives...
