What Blakey said. Money that should have been used on healthcare ends up in the pockets of insurance companies and lawyers. Observing Americans discussing their healthcare system is a jaw-dropping experience seen from a part of the world where the healthcare system functions quite well. The president does his best against the resistance of the money-makers and the lost-through-spinning-every-man-for-himself-ideological-sleepwalkers.

In America we have to do everything are own way, no matter how f*#ked up it is. The worst thing is we never learn from are mistakes.

those who have fallen on hard times....usually the result of healthcare bills.


1. Dont pay them. Change phone numbers and block the numbers of the collection agencies. Worst, worst case scenario is that you get sued. Just defend it pro se and many years later the millionaire doctor gets a judgment against you. Then declare bankruptcy, hopefully your primary residence and car stay with you.

2. If you're not going to die right away, get the hell out of the US and get medical care anywhere else.

Big surprise, another internet ball bag decides to be a dick. Nothing to get upset over, I'm sure it's the only success they have going for them.

Ron Anderson, when are you going to stop shooting yourself in the foot, then shoving it in your mouth and then claim whatever welfare you can? ;-)

I wonder if you are the original OP.

The US "healthcare" INDUSTRY making a killing off of human misery. Very little care or health involved, lots of industry and highway robbery.

I concur entirely with Blakey. While it is commendable to offer our fellows assistance out of compassion, it is no replacement for a functioning health care system. Yes we should help and give, but we must also put some money and energy into advocacy of the changes needed to keep injured people out of the poorhouse.

The OP is living in a bubble of some sort. Bubbles exist for mere fleeting moments of perfect symmetry. They are temporary, like Achilles. Even the mighty can fall. They plummet from great heights when they do.
This is a barbaric nation. The wild west mentality worked well enough when there was a frontier but we're living in a closed system now. European cultures have had many centuries to deal with this lack (except for the new world for their cast-off dirt bags) but we've only had about one century, a few generations to figure it all out, how to be civilized.

Someone has posted twice on the forum!

You guys are actually catching up to the crowd - congratulations on your gullibility.

Oh piss... I'm tired of people worrying about responding to trolls. who gives a f*#k if the guy gets his jollies. To me it only matters if it harms people. This one harmed no one.

Today I was in Raley's market in Oakhurst and overheard some people talking about civil war in america. They were saying that the gun owners would be fighting those who were against gun ownership.. specifically those who voted for Obama. They believed civil war would happen within the next two years. The conversation was so strange that I interjected myself into it and told them I voted for Obama. Then I asked them if they were planning to shoot me. It kind of shocked them. These were five middle aged average looking adults. 3 men and 2 women.

Then I went to the hardware store and heard a similar conversation of someone warning another person.

What a strange experience.. America is going a bit nuts and people are worried here about trolls. good lord. We deserve to die.

Hey Ron, just yanking your chain.

MisterE, I like being gullible, about the only fun I have nowadays.

John M, I hope you are not serious (civil war in America), but then Palin just spouted a whole bunch of crap about Obama, and Rand Paul (what, did Ron Paul name his son after Ayn Rand?) apparently is the flavor of the month with Tea Party kooks.

John M...You could have asked them Tea Baggers how they were going to identify who owned a gun and who they intended to shoot then suggest they use the national gun registry...
