Let's see, Motion, as I was not talking to you as far as proving anything, there is nothing to prove. As a matter of fact, if you'd care to stop
by, I'll introduce you to many people of many colors who are doing just fine,thank you. As a matter of fact, I'll introduce you to people of darker
color than I who are doing better than I am.
As far as health care, we have it, and we have good health care. We have such good health care that those who are even illegal aliens have it, and
are even closing the doors to some hospitals as those evil white corporate folks aren't able to keep the doors open.
You see, if one were to try and compare money spent on health care, one were to have to compare each and every dollar that average representatives of
the two countries have to spend toward taxes, have to spend toward necessities and then have to spend toward personal decisions other than the two
As far as "average", you don't get much more average than I am, so be careful when you throw rocks from across the ocean at a notion you don't
understand, especially when you didn't even understand the concept to which you thought you were responding.
Now, as far as your use of the word "government", my government in concept is just fine, thank you. Our faults are where we decided to dabble in
communism and where we decided to protect the world at our expense and allow others to have a free ride to a great extent. For example, why is it
that my nation is footing the bill for two battle groups being first responders to the tsunami-devastated areas, and having to bring their troops back
to the ships at night because the governments of the devestated areas don't want our troops sleeping on their soil, and the groups having to go back
to international waters so that the pilots can do the necessary flight training in order to stay current on flight qualification because the needy
countries won't allow our battle groups to save their people and keep current art the same time? Why can't it be a couple of your battle
groups coming to the rescue?
Don't try and play a card unless you are willing to play with the rest of the deck.
If I had it my way, my country would be much better of, some parts of the world would be smoldering and you would probably being goose-stepping with a
swastika on your arm. Not because I have any affection for the Nazis, which I do not, but because of your general attitude. It's been, what, 15
years since I left Europe and the uniform, and you have already forgotten the reason why you aren't either in debt up to your eyeballs or speaking
Russian right now? Nazism, Soviet communism, either way, your talking to the wrong man or the wrong family.
Yeah, we could probably have a much better health care system, retirement system, road system, etc,...had we spent our money on ourselves and
national-protecting nuclear defence rather than worrying about other things.
Come to think about it, Motion, was I responding to you? No, I was not.
