Capitalism!
Actually, filing bankruptcy is more socialism than capitalism. "I can't pay my bills so let's get rid of them, which of course passes on the costs to others.

Socialism!

I continue to be amused by your militant socialist stance, while you live in the USA and benefit from capitalism every day if your life. You must really be jealous of those who've earned more than you.

How edgy.

imagine being so clueless that you think proclaiming that corporate bankruptcy laws are rank socialism is actually really clever and smart.

I will not engage you. You are a troll who will not argue in good faith, and thus I have no time for you.

Ocasio-Cortez is live tweeting her tour of the concentration camps along the border. She is doing a great job of continuing to shed light on the conditions.

Nancy Pelosi's failure of leadership on this issue should cost her any legitimacy she still has. She is a joke and unfit to lead.

Agree. At this point she’s on the same side as Trump.

She has done nothing but “thoughts and prayers”

And it will cost the Democrats big time in 2020.

I think you'd be hard pressed to see her as anything better than a spineless politician. It's amazing how much some people read into her 'clapping' during Trump's SOTU address.

The Democrats are absolutely shit at a number of important things at which Republicans, for all their reprehensible immorality, excel.

1. Energizing their base.
2. Playing moderrn political warfare (their failure is sort of analogous to medieval warfare where armies lined up politly on the battlefield and proceeded to run at each other).
3. Choosing one or two key messages, simplifying them and then beating that horse until it's emaciated, dead, and 98 feet underground.

There are some in the younger cohort who are getting it (finally). Unfortunately the olds refuse to move on, and everyone suffers for it.

Thought I was pretty clear in the context it was in... seems like you’ve twisted that a little bit. Heck, given the post it’s a part of, I’m a bit surprised you think in any way I’m saying something negative about a Canadian hospital or positive about an American one.

Honestly I don't understand what you meant. Canadian hospitals aren't going to put you up in the Ritz...as opposed to which hospitals, I guess would be my question.

Again I’m not sure why you’re taking it out of context. This original response was to iyup, who said he was surprised that the Canadian system didn’t seem very comprehensive. My post was going on about how it establishes basic human rights. Providing universal healthcare doesn’t imply you’re going to get a private room with 1200 thread count Egyptian cotton pillows (I’m not suggesting that Canadian hospitals are or aren’t nice). The system is designed to give you your basic needs. In summary, the system “is as comprehensive as it needs to be” in order to ensure everyone basic human rights.

OK, fair enough. I don't feel like I was taking you out of context - still see it as an odd comment but moving on.

We also do have wholly-private clinics for the wealthy, but those are usually for general health checks/scans and not treatment facilities. You can simply skip the line and get a lot of tests/results done in a day. And fertility clinics are entirely private in the sense that they lie outside of the covered healthcare system, though some provinces do cover some extent of treatment. But they are most like US clinics in that you go, you pay a shit ton of $, and you get a different sort of service than you would otherwise.

There is also this weird myth among many Americans that the government tells us what doctor we can and can't see and that is so outside of any sort of reality that I don't understand how it has any legs. When I hear of Americans struggling to do this or that within their "insurance network", THAT is far less freedom than we have. I've never been mandated a doctor or specialist in my life and I've been a very heavy user of our healthcare system for various reasons.

Praise Jesus, the old men are bleeding support.

Quote:
Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have made steep gains after the first Democratic presidential debate, a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. shows, with former Vice President Joe Biden's lead over the field shrinking to a narrow 5 points.

The poll, conducted after the two-night debate, finds 22% of registered voters who are Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents backing Biden for the party's presidential nomination, 17% Harris, 15% Warren and 14% Sen. Bernie Sanders. No one else in the 23-person field tested hits 5%.
My prediction: Bernie will be the first of the big names to go down. Most of his voters will go to Warren.

We are pretty much headed towards semifinals of Biden v. Harris and Warren v. Sanders if it continues down this path. Doubt Sanders backs down so long as Harris and Biden both exist.

Just the president of a shit hole country telling a blatant racist talkshow host that homelessness started two years ago, that it doesn't exist in DC because he apparently thinks he's also the fucking mayor or something, and that he's thinking of scooping them all up off the streets to, I dunno, add them to hide concentration camps he's building on the border.

If you still support this man, may you rot in the make-believe hell you think liberals are going to forever.

I will be pleasantly surprised if Bernie drops out before the convention....assuming of course he doesn’t make progress from where he’s at now

He’s already started his game of the establishment being against him, and refused to answer if he would drop out before convention unlike last time.

I want either Warren or Harris. The issue is, can either (or both) win PA, FL, WI, MI....etc that Biden probably wins (minus FL)
