Yet another study in contrasts

OK, lemme see if I’ve got Liberal Logic understood properly:

Assembling the phone bills of a whole bunch of Americans (information already commercially available) into a huge database, then filtering them to try to discover possible terrorists: bad

Requiring hospitals to document the race, ethnicity, education levels, and all other kinds of personal information about patients and turn them over to the state: good.

Because, you see, finding, tracking, and foiling terrorists that want to kill us by the thousands is bad, but requiring everyone in Massachusetts to have health insurance is good. And the state NEEDS that information to find “inequities” in care and treatment.

I can kind of see the logic here. When the terrorists blow up a liquid natural gas tanker in Boston, all those who survive the blast better have health insurance.
