As we have yet another victim of ‘shelter at home’ syndrome….. Congrats on getting ‘featured comment’ for today.
Thanks to all of you for these hilarious (and accurate) responses I LoVe iT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Might be better to say ’Fox News is a lot like America back then" -after all the whole MAGAt thing is about taking ’Murika back to the good old days.
Would I have said it so well-eloquently expressed and much appreciated.
They are just willing to support a racist misogynist because they think they are getting some benefit from it. At some level I have more respect for his racist misogynist supporters than for the others just because I can’t imagine wanting some benefit enough to sacrifice basic decency and compassion for it.
There you go with that old ‘logic’ and ‘empirical facts’ thing again. Thanks.
Saw it last night- highly recommend and while it has the surrealistic moments it is a very well grounded and clear story.
Evidence- which you fail to address or admit (big surprise there/s/). Every other industrial country has a universal system and it works better than ours. As for your juvenile rants about ‘gubermint is evil’- get off the Ayn Rand. While currently in the private sector I’ve worked in government for years- it’s run by people who are mostly decent, overworked, underpaid and fundamentally committed to doing the right thing and I do not appreciate ignorant blanket condemnations of them by right-wing ideologues.
So it wasn’t a ‘death panel’ that decided the young mother couldn’t have the transplant? Again, as usual for a conservative, you ignore the fact that the entire rest of the industrialized world can provide universal healthcare better and cheaper and instead spout off about imaginary ‘death panels’while one or two people a month die at my wife’s ICU because they tried to ration their insulin to save money. Charity and friends are no way to pay for a serious illness, nor should getting ill force one to become a beggar. For your additional information, in almost every country with some form of universal health care there IS a private sector with extra services and perks available for those who wish to pay. There are numerous working systems out there and your willful and malicious ignorance as to that simple fact- and the blatant lying associated with it- gets really old.
Americans have a problem with being unable to comprehend that the rest of the industrialized world does a better job of providing health care for their citizens than our for profit cesspool. My wife is nurse at an ICU and routinely watches people die (rather expensively BTW) because they could not pay for preventive treatment- the other day she watched a young mother die because the health insurance she purchased was not part of the ACA programs but was something she could afford. She had a previously undiagnosed medical condition that appeared suddenly and she needed a liver transplant to survive- and her private for profit insurance would not pay for it- by the time she got enough financial coverage it was too late and she died leaving her young children without parents (her husband had died earlier). The smug twerps that come on here posting about the ‘private sector’ fail- or IMO deliberately and maliciously refuse- to admit that illness is not profitable inasmuch as treating an illness is a money losing proposition- the sick person is not able to earn money while still having expenses and their return to health puts no additional money in anyone’s pocket- thus the best financial way to deal with illness is to not pay for it and any for profit model will always result in decisions being made based on that. A ‘benefits all of society’ model – such as public highways and public education – where it is understood that all of society benefits from having an educated citizenry and all of society benefits from an efficient transportation network and in both cases everyone pays for it even if some people don’t directly use it because, again, everyone ultimately benefits. The rest of the world seemingly understands this and has a form of public health system along side their public education and public transportation systems while in America we prefer to spend more (as a nation and individually) to get less just so some scumbags can get really rich.
