I had a pretty lively discussion yesterday with some locals about nationalized health care. Now I don’t have any illusions about my abilities to explain rational ideas to irrational people, but it’s fun to stir that pot every now and then.
Today I saw this first-hand account of nationalized health care that I believe makes the argument better than anything I could ever say.
My closest encounter with nationalized health care was in Wales where my friend Halfacre got his chin busted open. I’ve seen enough cuts to know that this one would take anywhere from 10-12 stitches. He got four stitches and an ugly scar as a souvenir.
But it was “free”, so I’m sure he didn’t mind, right?
