I'm sure you will agree the healthcare industry in the US is at least fascism. And I would argue that fascism is nothing more than a form of socialism which appeals to the right wing.
Replace socialism with statism, it's all the same thing. It's all about violence. That is all that government is -- violence.
Violence never solves anything.
You do not reach a utopia through the use of force.

GotD: The old "layoff in 21 days or maybe 6 months..." notice expired and was replaced with a NEW "layoff sometime in the next 6 months..." notice. So basically I've been notified that I'll be laid off sometime between November 2011 and November 2012.
Seriously, I know they're hoping we get pissed off and just quit so they don't have to pay severance.
I'm only staying for the medical insurance.
My sorely neglected blog - http://ThatWriterBroad.com
Having to give up my health insurance because it went from being 20% of my income to being 30% of my income in the past 6 month. I've tried to do the right thing and buy my own insurance. It had a high deductible, so I never went to the doctor for basic stuff anyway because the premium made me broke. At least now I'm primal and way healthier than before.
Keep in mind that doctors that accept medicare/caid are held to a bunch of insane rules and regulations that increase their costs and force them to charge XYZ.

My blog that I don't update as often as I should: http://primalclimber.blogspot.com/
My left hand is not as functional as my right. I'm a righty and trying to do normal everyday things with my left hand is like watching the special olympics. If i try to brush my teeth, use a knife to cut a steak, scoop something with a spoon, or wipe my ass. IT JUST ISN'T HAPPENING. I can't even put a shirt on left arm first without shit hitting the fan. Same goes with putting my pants on left leg first. ARG.
