Uh Oh.. I guess we are screwed.
Sorry to have pissed you off so much.
Whine, whine whine....
The "We're tired of your crap America" you are talking about isn't a debate with CANADA, FRANCE, or any other country, it's an AMERICAN debate.
It has NOTHING to do with you. So, the affairs of America are the affairs of America, period.
When some of us use other country models of government systems we are not engaging YOU (or that country) in a debate. Regardless of the accuracy of
the content, it has nothing to do with YOU or your country.
Just because some of "us" distort or misread the efficiency, effectiveness, rationing (or lack thereof) doesn't mean you are invited to the table
to straighten us out. We (our citizens) don't invade your political or social debates with a ridiculous indignation as you just did.
ESPECIALLY when there are people IN YOUR COUNTRY who don't feel the system is as rosey as you do, when there are people IN YOUR COUNTRY who feel your
systems are indeed SOCIALISTIC, when there are people IN YOUR COUNTRY who feel your systems are indeed rationed, ineffective and overburdened.
Where do you get off yelling at US for having a debate about OUR country.
Why do other countries citizens feel the need to judge us, but then immediatley go ballistic when we judge them?
We aren't engaging YOU in the debate.. so pull down your bunched up panties eh?
We know our health care system is screwed, we know it needs to be fixed.
We are engaged ion a debate, hopefully something good will come of it.
So kindly.. bugger off. Eh?
