Well, I guess he does say race is a problem in our community. I guess I am the ass who didnt read the article this time. My mistake. Didnt think I had had that many beers.
Do you people actually read the articles? Seems to me the article is about how we, as a society, dont talk openly about racism. Blacks say its everywhere, whites say its not an issue. The statements about racism in Charleston are quotes from other individuals. The references to the North Charleston case doesnt appear to take any stand, but, only show that blacks and whites view it differently. Nevertheless, Barney still manages to be a racist himself for suggesting blacks and whites view the subject differently. Hmm. Interesting. Someone please enlighten me as to how this article is anything more that than commentary on different races attitude to racism. If he's playing the race card again, I sure cant figure out where.
The World Health Organization's list of health care systems around the world list the US at number 37. Guess who's number 1. France, which subsidizes most of the health care costs in that country. Who else is above the US? Well, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Scandinavian countries, in fact, most industrialized countries in the world. Cuba comes close to beating the US at number 39, even after 60 years of sanctions. Thank God people fight so hard to maintain the current system. Maybe they're right, though. Maybe Americans are too dumb to come up with a system that can rival France's. Better to leave in all in the hands of a few CEO's and shareholders.
You know, I'm kind of sick of people who choose sides in the great political match and then bash the other side over a bunch of stereotypes that may or may not be true. Thanks for destroying democracy folks. I'm sure you sit around and talk about terrorists taken away our freedom when you're part of the great herd that is taking away more of our freedom than any terrorist.
Chas native. In the interest of healthy debate, please share these facts and experiences you speak of that illustrate universal health care to be such a bad idea. I have heard some bad, but, also some very good experiences in other countries that have universal health care. I have spent time in Canada, and have spent time with visiting Canadians around here and they dont seem to suggest that their system is pure crap like some Americans do. But, I am always interested in new insights, so please, enlighten me.
