Jack the prograssive time waster:"YUP. Car accidents are trivial. Ditto kids getting scalded with boiling water."

WHen you make a doctor appointment because your kid is sick, you don't need to be lectured about 'not speeding while driving, putting on your turn signal, or checking the air in our tires!"....


jack the progressive: "How about stuff like heart attacks and lung cancer? Trivial!"

Heh heh..that's actual medicine....


Jack the progressive: "Or the morbitity and mortality associated with the epidemic of obesity?"

that's actually medically related..... but if he wants to discuss the color of my curtains, the length of my curtains, whether i have baby proofed the electric outlets, vacuumed the floor every other day, use Brand XYX baby food, washed my clothes in Tide.....that's going too far.


Jack the progressive:"Let them focus on the BUSINESS of healthcare. Making lots and lots of money. So that we continue to have THE GREATEST HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD."

We do...and doctors , per hour, don't make all that much.....unless you happen to be the world's best neurosurgeon or similar.....

You didn't whine about Steve Jobs becoming a gazillionaire, along with Bill Gates and warren Buffet and those Hollywood 'stars' and sports stars? hmmm...I wonder why, but your wealth envy is definitely showing.

Yep, drug companies didn't invest billions and tens of billions, and often lose billions when things come up with new medicines. So far, I haven't seen anything come out of the Soviet Union or Cuba or Venezuela - for treatment of diseases like malaria, tuberculosis, Alzheimer, cancers..... or anything else. those wonderful socialist paradises where medicine should have even cured the common cold since they didn't make a profit!... ho ho ho

You didn't get the airplane, light bulb, plastics, oil and gasoline, transistors, integrated circuits, computers, cars.....trains, cellphones.....from 'socialist entiies'. You got them from people with a BIG profit motive hoping to 'make it big'.

Same with health care. No one invented to CAT scan and MRI and X-ray to remain poor.
