look back...I never said nothing worked, I said two of the biggest social programs are going bankrupt. Health Care is going to be much bigger than both of those. I don't trust the govt with anything that big. but i could be wrong. I wouldn't want the govt taking over the airlines long term. don't you worry about our gov track record making important decisions?

haven't satillites changed the world?

Sure and so has velcro, so we agree sometimes they get something right

I'm just saying it would be impossible to measure money spent vs lives changed.

Neither can I, Iris. I've tried, but I just can't see the reason for all this outrage and idiocy.

Now that we've joined the other Western welfare states in a death spiral to see who can reach insolvency first - why not just apply to join the European Union and completely put to rest this nagging idea that America was founded to be different. In fact, so different as to be exceptional.
Close the chapter on America being founded on the idea of liberty, not conformity and dependency. On individual rights not collectivism.

Let's just forget all that dusty nonsense, take up soccer, stop taking so many damn baths, cease going to church and rely on the U.N. from now on to keep the crazed dictators, world-dominating Communists and Atomic Ayatollahs at bay.

Pourquoi the hell pas?
