Liked your comments. "Useful idiots" permeate the U.S. Woefully, these are not "dropping like flies" (quoting the esteemed person you replied to) - we're the fattest - as in FAT, not PHAT - nation on earth; I say, wire their mouths shut and put 'em on a liquid diet for a couple months - that would put at least a dent in our "healthcare problem" (Obesity is the #1 cause of medical problems, death in the U.S.).

While I agree the ideal is to ship Demos. et. al off to the E.U., the chance of this is slim.

How about this one - an aquaintence of mine, should he downsize his company, will do so based on Obama bumper-stickered cars in the employee parking lot.

Can't say I agree with you on Canada's health care -

"(AP) - A letter from the Moncton Hospital to a New Brunswick heart patient in need of an electrocardiogram said the appointment would be in three months. It added: 'If the person is deceased, please accept our sincere apologies'."

P.S. ~ Is it still illegal for private health care to compete with government in Canada?
