Can We Talk?

Americans And Their Fear Of Socialized Medicine

Why is that?  What are they so afraid of?  Socialized medicine.  That’s a bad thing? 

There has been this ongoing brainwashing of the American mind, and Canadian also but not to that extent.  Fear of Socialism.  Not sure why but it probably has something to do with Russia and their revolution. 

Stepping back in time, all countries ruled by royalty treated their people like so much dirt under their feet.  All that class system like one was better than another.  Blue blood.  Where did that come from?  Prick Prince William with a needle and show me where you see blue.  And don’t talk to me about it’s a metaphore.  It’s bullshit, that’s what it is.

Industrial revolution and it’s OK to have children work in factories beside the adults.  They’re nothing special.  They’re commoners, not worthy of any respect.  They’re like cattle or oxen.  Livestock and born to toil for their masters.

But I digress.

I hope ordinary Americans have the good sense to see past the fear-mongering Republicans and see where it would benefit them, their children and generations to come.  Even if they have to pay a little more income tax.  So what?  It’s a damn sight cheaper than facing over-the-top medical bills that could ruin them financially.  Personally, I prefer an across-the-board government run program.  It simplifies things.  Hey, but anything is better than what they’ve got now.

So, do my views make me a Socialist?  Maybe they do.  Yeah, I guess they do and I’m proud of it.

Go, Barak.  I’m proud of you.  Well, I’d be more proud if you brought your troops home.

Socialized Medicine In The Trent Hills

We’d heard so many horror stories about the lack of doctors in the country.  I don’t know where the stories originated.  There was even a Canadian woman on an American commercial that the Republicans ran over and over.  She claimed she had to go to the US to get medical treatment for something.  I can’t remember what.  Maybe her heart?  She claimed her doctor said there was a two year waiting list for the treatment she needed.  I wonder how much she was paid for that commercial?  She’s a liar of the first order.
