" I don't think I've ever met a Liberal whom I didn't like on a personal basis. That said, if your goal is to change minds and influence people, it's probably not a good idea to begin by asserting that virtually all elected Democrats are liars. But what the hell."

"...prematurely disappointed in the future."

As you see below, I spent yesterday amusing myself, if not anybody else, but I was still wondering about stuff.  One thing was why are we always having to cover the same ground with liberals all the time?  Like Canada's health care system they love so much?  In 1993 they offered it as exhibit one  in support of  Hildabeast's (almost entirely successful, as it turns out) hijacking of our own.  This AP article nicely sums up what was said 12 years ago, and every 12 hours since then about the glory of Canuck Care.

Who's the Fairest of Them All?
From an Associated Press story on Canada's health-care system:

The universal health-care system--while considered one of the fairest in the world--has been plagued by long waiting lists and a lack of doctors, nurses and new equipment. Some patients wait years for surgery, MRI machines are scarce and many Canadians travel to the United States for medical treatment.

In most Canadian provinces, it is illegal to seek faster treatment and jump to the head of the line by paying out of pocket for public care. Private health clinics have sprouted up even though they are technically illegal, though the provincial governments tend to look the other way.

Other than that, though, it's really fair! (James Taranto chiming in).

What's that? You still need help cutting your meat?  Mindelle Jacobs in the Edmonton Sun [Canada has four-tiered health care] will help.  Here are examples of what we can look forward to, as our Republican [yes, Republicans are not as evil as liberals, but they are pussies when it comes to standing tall] congress slowly, but inexorably herds us into socialist health care Nirvana.
"It is a long-held myth, of course, that there is no queue-jumping in this country. Most Canadians have no special privileges when it comes to receiving care, but some do."

Mindelle might just as well be discussing the vaunted Cuban, or any other ratbastardcommie health system, eh?
"So while the typical Canadian waits and waits for a diagnostic test or surgery, the members of  [some] groups are entitled to speedy access. All of them are exempt from the Canada Health Act. ... It irks me that a prisoner can get quicker specialist consultations or surgery than law-abiding Canadians, but that's the law. . Go bark to your MP about it."

Rotsa ruck.  Undoing ANY nanny state solution, in ANY nanny state, is about as easy as getting the Berlin Wall torn down  (but that can work.  I call it the Ceausescu Solution).
"Just last week, you may recall, a New Brunswick man who told police in Toronto he was planning a shooting rampage was jailed for three years. He wasn't actually going to kill anyone. The 44-year-old man, who had no prior criminal record, just wanted heart surgery. And he got it quickly while in custody."

Maybe these guys are only just trying to get some relief from the heartbreak of psoriasis?

"Injured workers don't have to wait, though. Last year, a Workers' Compensation Board claimant in Alberta wrote us about his experience. "The average person waits, what, months or years for an MRI? I waited two days," he wrote in a letter to the editor.

"He only waited 12 days for back surgery, he added. "Only a fool would believe we all get the same treatment."

Some guy (Sidney J. Harris) observed that  "A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past, he is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future."  Ay Carumba, I'm a cynic now.  Because we stupidly allowed  Medicare to become the law of the land rot in Hell Ted Kennedy, we are doomed to live the same Canuck experience.  I wonder who our Ceausescu  will be?

"I did not vote for Obama but he is remarkable. In less than three weeks in office he has collected more than $150,000 in back taxes."

"I wonder who our Ceausescu will be?"

Ummmm...pick a Kennedy, preferably Swimmer, if he's still around.
