In the UK 9% of everyone’s salary is taken for healthcare, pensions and social security. I’m on about 1.5 times the national average salary and this deduction works out at about $420 US per month. The National Health Service spends about £2,000 per person per year, about $230 per month. Although people say the medical staff should be paid more, nurses are typically paid more than the UK average salary and the doctor’s-only parking is always full of expensive sports cars.
Bloody hell but you Americans are boring when you go on about your ‘politics’. Blue / red / red / blue – they’re all the same and both sides’ supporters make the same claims about the other side’s supporters.
Some people never grow out of the childish notion that angels carry guns. Thankfully, such nutjobs only tend to thrive in the USA.
I wish I had heard that advice as a teenager.
Isn’t that the basic principle? Demanding goods with menaces?
It does indeed happen. In my 20 years of consulting I had that done to me three times. The final one was Toshiba.
In countries that are not gun-mad, i.e., not the USA, you are more likely to be killed by lightning, sharks or bulls than by shooting.
Outside of the USA this conversation seems utterly insane. Only in the USA do people think it is OK for members of the public to go wandering around with deadly weapons and think that is any way normal and acceptable.
I can’t. Your comments drive me mental.
