Better to be a dog in Canada. I can only conclude, based on my knowledge of economics and reality, and this candid video (among common sense and countless other examples) that people on the comment sections of websites who go on and on about how awesome hell care REALLY is in the UK and Canada (because they don't *actually* have inordinate waiting times and it's all freeee!) are, to put it bluntly, full of shit.
But I knew that. It's just that you seldom can mount the economic defense because it would take...some foundation in common, things that they should already know? Besides they're just lying about it, so what's the point? At any rate, watch this video and weep at what we're headed for.
Also, in the beginning of this video, there is a clip of Obama promising in his campaign that he would get a universal health care bill signed by the end of his first term - now he's swearing to god and all the universe that it's NOT universal health care, that it was NEVER intended to be universal health care, that he never said any such thing, but that whatever it is, it has to pass NOW - before next month. Or we'll explode. Just like we were going to explode without the stimulus package. And it had to go through IMMEDIATELY or we'd all die. Now unemployment is skyrocketing and he's claiming it's working exactly as planned. Yes, I guess it is, you son of a bitch.
Your humorous moment of zen for the day. (Anyone know where this is or what's going on? It's hilarious!
