They're the same people who were very distraught when Michael Jackson died and made Youtube tributes and laid bouquets of flowers at US embassies around the world.

What is your point?

Just kidding.

My company brought a guy from Canada to work in our office. He was everything you described. A sanctimonious little prick smug over nothing.

Well that clinches it.

Canada WOULD BE speaking French.


Priceless ...

OP you are a genius.


Oh and P, presumably your not using paragraphs because you're protesting French words.

Yikes.


It might be humor... I love telling Germans "If it wasn't for us, you'd all be speaking German"

I know you lefties take these debates so bitterly serious so I'd thought I'd let you know that there is a possibility he was being factitious.

The Hospital does not pay unless the patient screws up or has the money and lies? To many partisan articles?

For a graphic example -

A friend who used to work for me called from Fargo a few months ago. His health is bad and he is a couple of years from retirement. He could find no work in Fargo.

I flew him up, gave him a part time job which is all he could handle in his state of health. He thought the same as you.

I convinced him he was wrong and challenged him to find out.

He went in and filled out the paper work at the hospital. He had to go to the IRS office and document his income. They gave him a once over to verify his health. He did the whole song and dance and guess what; it worked.

He now has a regular MD at the Hospitals Clinic. He pays only pennies on the dollar. He has had many thousands in tests and procedures that cost him nothing and the Hospital is being paid.

He could have believed the political crap and waited for an emergency. Then he could have failed to do the paperwork and follow through. That is what is hurting the Hospitals. Pure apathy.

Of course there is a side of this I agree with. If everyone who could get their care payed for actually did it, the system would go bankrupt I'd bet. I do believe our leaders know that many will not take advantage.

I guarantee you that the Illegals know how to use the system instead of fighting it. To the tune of billions I'm sure. To bad many of our fellow citizens are to illiterate or apathetic to do things right.

This system could be fixed without destroying it and giving us the same crappy care that single payer countries have. They have other motives I'm afraid.

For the most-part I agree with everything you said. But you can take your "Americans" and cram it right back in that big fat pie hole you just opened.

Specify to whom you're speaking. Because, when you say "American" - well, you're talking about me. And I'm not your scape-goat "American" to which you're referring.

You're preaching to the choir if you're referring to over-zealous "Republicans" who can't even accept the legitimacy of their President. Or, if you're referring to those "Democrats" who're disenfranchised with the system as a whole and want to see a lot less of Big Brother and the Old Boy's Club that's had it's hand in the pot for about a century or more. Or if you're speaking of any absent minded Americans out there who REALLY do think there's a difference in Red or Blue Politics in general when it comes to how this country really operates.

I can relate. I don't like them much either. But, you better start speaking up about to which you're referring, because I'll stand with you night and day and argue over whether a Government Health Plan is going to make our Health Care System a lot worse. It may work fine in Paris or Canada, but this is America, buddy and our system is far too corrupt to "Improve" what we have now. Health Care in this country is outrageously expensive. To start a government program that's to "Compete" with the Corporately Owned private sector will drive prices higher in the future and mandate MINIMAL care. It's Capitalism at it's finest and it's going to SUCK BAD. I'm happy that your health care system in Canada is treating you just dandy. Happy Days. But, it stands to make our country a lot worse for the ware.

P.S. I have no love for Obama. I voted for him. I don't think socialists are bad people. I don't like Capitalism. I'm an American.

Canada does it. Australia does it. Europe does it.

So why can't we americans get with the program?





Because we don't want to be like you. That's all the reason I need.

Hem, did you just say I was too serious?

Here in New Mexico, the hispanics help the illegals get that paperwork filled out. They suggest it to them at the hospital, but if you are anglo, you are # out of luck. They will tell you directly that there is nothing to help you financially, and that you are basically # out of luck.

How did we ever get to this point in our country? So many on here seem to be in some kind of race to prove the OP is right.

To the OP now you know why some of the most ignorant and most easily manipulated people are Americans and it does not take all that much to get a lot of us worked up.Throw some random negative words for example "socialist." "fascist." and or "drug dealer." and they eat it up like the programed mindless puppets they are.

Canada, Briton, France, Sweden, etc, etc, etc. are all proud of the governments we've all helped to establish and maintain and I'll be damned if a bunch of Yankees tell me it's all a sham and destined for failure and bankruptcy.


I'm glad that you speak for all of those countries and everyone in them simultaneously





Social democracies are not built on totalitarian rule, we are not slaves to our respective governments and we will not be categorized as such.


Agreed but the world as a whole is tilted in favor of those with the money and the influence the Elite have on the so called "Elected" governments of the world is more than just a little. TPTB essentially do own the planet and while we are still enjoying a great deal of freedom that freedom seems more an illusion offered by our puppet masters than an actual true freedom.


All these "Americans" holding up signs of president Obama with a Hitler mustache and equating him with Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Hitler himself at these town hall meetings are idiots beyond help. They are not "patriots", they're ignorant morons and this is from someone that really doesn't care if your government is run by democrats, republicans or real fascists at this point.


Agreed but this has been going on for a long while, in many other countries aren't representations of "enemy" politicians immolated? My point is that in a place as divided as America (and this division is no accident, but is manufactured half by the Elite and half by people's own ignorance) this should not come as a surprise. They want to stir people's irrational emotions and anger them so they make these wild off base accusations about Hitler and such...


When the elections in America were still being held, I'll admit, I cared who won. I cared because, like it or not, American policies shape the world and I genuinely care about the welfare of the people of our planet as a whole. I hoped that Obama would win because, at the time, he seemed to me as the world's best possible hope for, at the very least, a de-escalation in tensions world round. After he took office, I'll also concede, I was disappointed in his lack of initiative. He said he would end the "war on terror" and he's done nothing of the sort. If anything he's scaling it up and taken Canadian and British troops, amoung many others, with him on his fruitless, imperialist conquests. I am not a supporter of Barack Obama, nor many of his policies, but he was and still is, the lesser of two evils.


Honestly part of me hopes that America falls even farther out of leadership of the world, we've done a terrible job thus far of "leading the world" and although I love this Country I really think we need to look for some new ideas even if they come from outside the states. I also agree Obama seems the lesser of two evils but again any of the Republicrat choices would have been puppets no matter what...



America is not the only country in the world, what you say does reach people outside of your boarders and quite frankly a large chunk of you come off as children, and that's being generous.


This country is built on pride, ethnocentrism, blind patriotism, and sheer arrogance. We are children, we are a nation of fat little spoiled brats throwing hissy fits all the while our attitudes controlled and swayed by the unseen indoctrination of the "parent" (Elite)...

S&F for you OP for standing up to ignorance and speaking your mind. We Americans need a good dose of humility if we're to survive as the so-called "leaders" of the free world.

Actually Hitler did reform healthcare in the same way the Obama administration wants..

We have EVEN POSTED FROM OBAMA'S MOUTH ITSELF, that elder Americans, and other "undesirables" shouldn't have operations if the government doesn't think it will help them, or get certain treatments, and they should just keep swallowing some pills...

This is what Eugenics is all about, which BTW the Germans did not start the eugenics movement, in fact IT STARTED IN AMERICA WELL BEFORE IN GERMANY, but the Germans believed it, and accepted it through Hitler.

That's why many Americans are seeing the similarities between Hitler and the entire Obama administration... Even the science czar of Obama IS A DIE HARD EUGENICS PROPONENT...as well as several other members of the current U.S. administration.

I even excerpted the statements from another Liberal Democrat Supreme Court Justice who said it herself that the government should get involved in not allowing certain parts of the population not to have more "undesirables", and the Obama administration ahs put in power people who believe in this mindset, and who want to give the U.S. sovereignty over to the UN, and for the UN to control us...

I am getting tired of having to search for links and videos for people who keep claiming "all of this is lies" yet they obviously are ignorant to a fault since they havent even listened, or read what is being proposed by the Obama administration itself for healthcare reform among other CHANGES...

You know what's funny? I see so many people here argueing that the govt is inept and can't do it properly, that it is bound to fail, too expensive blablabla ...

It is like ... my landlord is feeling generous and wants to offer me a car and I say: no no, you can't afford it, I dont want it!

I mean...hello? The president wants to give all of you free healthcare? Why don't you want it?
Too expensive? Do you know with a fraction of the US defense budget you can feed and cure THE ENTIRE WORLD?

Seriously wake up people, I have been on ATS long enough and the govt offering healthcare gets more outrage than all the freedom restricting laws and policies of the Bush era.

It is like the sheep have been abused for so long than they reject any helpful hand.

Incredible

Wow, and more and more people keep making the same claims without READING WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED...

The motto of the website is to "deny ignorance" not to "embrace ignorance every chance you get"....

READ what is being proposed, and WATCH the links to video which have been given several times in which the Obama administration clearly state what they want to do with healthcare reform.

Instead i just see people like you jump in the bandwagon, and "support this without knowing one iota of knowledge about what sort of reforms are being proposed by the Obama administration...

This is the same mentality which voted the current administration in power, believing that the word "CHANGE" would bring only good things without knowing, or even asking anything about what sort of CHANGES the administration wanted to implement...

I had to add the two vertical red lines to the right.. that's the debt Obama is racking up vs. all the earlier years.



Here is a close up

You better believe people are upset now.

Listen to the utter pack of lies he said during his campaign



People are through believing anything about this government. We're through.

And don't you find it ironic that they want to be rid of the very group they created, when they turned the "helping hand" programs into a social entitlement lifestyle?

That always gets me every time I think about it.
