    I hate mirrors. The intrude on my very own reality with a more universal one. After my big one broke, I haven't replaced it.

    Quelsen- I just watched X-Men First Class and was tragically dissapointed by how skinny Beast was after he changed- even if he did start as a wicked lanky guy. Being big and beastly means that you make more women feel girl-sized- which we tend to like (because you really need one more thing in your favor. Right)

    But you know what? It's not academic to me, or to thousands of other people. If it wasn't for government services like police, firefighters, welfare, food stamps, and the pittance of health coverage on offer - those people would burn, starve, or die in agony - and thousands still do. And you have the gall to tell me that you would save me by letting me, and everyone else with a catastrophic injury or illness and without the wherewithal to care for their families, rot in hell.

    Congratulations, you successfully made me feel hurt and angry and worthless for being a fucking "slave of the state." You should feel so proud.

    Now I remember why I stopped posting here before. Enjoy your soapbox.
    First of all: I am not agreeing with Grok. But universal healthcare will never work in America, it will just be an enormous money sink that will push the country more and more towards its inevitable financial self-destruction. You've got some rare disease. That sucks, and while neither I (nor many people here, probably) can truly sympathize with your situation, the difference is that the percentage of people who incur enormous medical bills from genetic conditions or diseases with unknown causes is a fraction of the percentage of people who are sucking off the government's tit because of some lifestyle-related condition (type II diabetes, heart disease, etc).
    I don't have a problem with the idea of the state funding treatment of people with ALS and the like. I do have a problem with the state buying metaformin for people who continue to shove their face with twinkies and cocoa puffs because they're (a) too attached to their food to sacrifice it for their own personal health or (b) too lazy to do some of their own actual research into health.

    my chick loves that i can allow her to ride piggybacked around the house.. she is an average american woman size for 5'8" ( and not the idealized size, the true average)

    Silly quelsen, if she's piggybacking you then you're doing it backwards.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    First i agree in principal.

    however you may be missing the whole picture.

    government is created to serve the interest of the people, what ever that population decides is currently relevant. America is not different and the population on a whole doesn't give a fuck what those in power do as evidenced by the lack of direct action taken in the past so it is now run by those who are pushing self interest over the welfare of the group. this is also to be expected as power corrupts and absolute power is fucking awesome and may i have more please. ( ps anyone who seeks office should be shot, anyone who holds office should suicide at the end of term.)


    Having said that.

    We live in a world where truth is hidden and lies are promulgated. where reality is twisted to suit those who tell the story and nothing is sacred and no stone has been left unturned.

    it becomes easier and easier to forget that what you NOW know was the result of some extremely difficult research to cut thru the bullshit of static that has been pulled over the eyes of the masses. It is easy to forget, if you ever know that the propaganda machine that was perfected during world war II is in full swing and targeted on the non ruling class.

    THEY DONT KNOW THEY ARE KILLING THEMSELVES. And those that do know are not about to tell. Few have the secret decoder ring and fewer still have the power to effect change writ large.

    SO you may indeed be against the government paying for healthcare to fix people who are hurting themselves, but you are missing the point that the government created the situation where they may "tax" you for your own health and are doing so with full knowledge of the consequences.

    in no society have the slaves ever been treated as the masters. do not delude yourself of your own status in the grand scheme of things. Thank whatever god you worship you are in a position to pay for your real food, and know what you know. Pity the rest, for they are lost and enslaved and it is no accident.
