    Oh please – difference is working smart, and the “us” and “them” would be goverments and terrorists / anarchists. Besides that you see plenty of witchhunts going on in these cases.

    Very very sick cartoon.

    If Holbert doesn’t like your USA justice when it’s working like it was set out to do, he really should live somewhere else.
    If he’s proven guilty in your courts, then the consequential justice will be meted out.

    Why is Uncle Sam angry that he’s doing what is right and decent and what, indeed, does make us different from (some, certainly not all) other countries?
    It makes me proud to be an American.

    It’s a tea party cartoon, so cruel and clueless is key to the philosophy. Attack the victims, and complain about spending money to do what’s right. And, of course, the very premise of the cartoon — that taxpayer funds will cover the injuries — is also false: see the NYT article on the Boston fund today. $50,000 will not cover the costs of prosthetics. If we were a civilized country with single-payer health care, these people would be taken care of. At least under Romneycare they’re likely to be insured, but it’s private insurance with solid limits about what will be covered. Many of the victims will be ruined financially, and probably bring their families down with them as housing and college educations go to pay for needed health care.

    Billy, sure do. There was a conspiracy nut at the very first press conference loudly and repeatedly DEMANDING! to know if it was a “false flag” exercise.
    (Of course, nutcases doing crazy things could never happen, only the gummint is a nutcase that does crazy things.)
    I think anyone sane and rational is very pleased that at least one was taken alive. In fact, I even wish the younger one had not run over his brother.

    I think that it is criminal that the USA is the only country in the world that has not had government health care. (And no one say say that governments that provide health care are broke, that is highly inaccurate because all others do provide it, rich or broke.)

    Yup, your average person can afford double amputation and rehab while out of work for a few years. Moochers…

    So what’s your point? Is it good to just let them die? Are you complaining about the money spent to keep him alive for trial? If he dies everything he knows goes with him. Are you saying we’re better than everyone else because we keep him alive?

    “such as one of the Provincial Prime Ministers of Canada.”
    So you still have not read the full story about your illustration, please do.

    And it is a big difference. Even Bill Maher said the other day all religions are not created equal. We don’t kill you if you insult Jesus Christ; we don’t kill women not for adultery nor for being raped. Think about it please. This is not bigoted if it is true and is a truth that needs to be confronted.

    The opposite is actually true. There are more people leaving our country for healthcare. Ireland actually had a campaign (I don’t know if they still do) when I was there to get Irish-Americans to move to Ireland because, after achieving citizenship, their prescripton medications would be free after age 55.
    We are also no longer the leader in research medicine, either. More rich people are seeking new treatments in Germany, Japan, Sweden, Finland, and even Singapore. We have fallen behind just about everyone that is not a third world country.

    Attack the victims, are you saying the bombers are the victims. ARod look at the cartoon think about what you said; then check your own premises.

    Yeah but they don’t have 50 million on food stamps and playing nurse maid to the rest of the world, we still send several hundred million in aid to China that we have got to pay back to them. Hey if you want Universal health care get our allies to cover their own military expenses. See how that goes.
