I didn't know if I should laugh or cry with this one..



All other industrialized democracies guarantee health care for everybody - young, old, rich or poor, native or immigrant. To judge the content of a nation's character, look no further than its health-care system. See this excellent article here:No Country for Sick Men.

I know what you mean, Lula. If you've ever been to Canada, have you noticed how happy, friendly, well-adjusted the people are? Not having to worry about your health care is huge. These countries populations are healthier also because their stress levels are so much lower than in the U.S.

It's liberating, too. You can chase your dreams, start a business without worrying about covering your workers, nor are you stuck in a dead-end job because of benefits. There are all sorts of great "side" benefits to having universalo healthcare.

Luv the video.

Exactly. It frustrates me to no end. See? My stress level's high, just like you said!
I've been to Canada twice, both times they searched our car and looked at us shiftily. Can you blame them? No wonder they don't want us in.
It's a really good article. Depressing, but good, and the video, I laughed and was mad at the same time. How is that possible?

How about this:

Public Option = Pro Life

WWJD? Move to Canada where healing the sick is not a corporate choice based on profit.
