Our school got methadone. Attendance is now up to 99.7 and truancy was eliminated. Unfortunately, the kids are lining up at the door at 3am.

I don't get what a stupid nurse has to do with government run health care..Even if your health care is still privatized, you'll be seeing the same dumb nurse as everyone else.

Good, then your family won't avail itself of Medicare or Medicaid.

The health teacher at that school said if you masturbate a lot eventually "insulin" will sort of look like "h1n1."

No, we have good employer furnished medical benefits.
Out of doctor visits, emergency surgeries, elective surgeries to repair broken bones, damaged joints, dental surgeries, etc., totaling well over $218,000, I've only had to pay a couple of thousand dollars in medical expenses.

Having a real job has its benefits, unlike flipping burgers or picking up dog excrement for a living.

That's great if every member of your family works, if you never need disability and the attendant government health coverage, and if every member of your family keeps working until you die.

I think you know what Medicaid and Medicare are. I think you know that employer plans don't cover anything. And I think you know that, generally speaking, people like Medicaid and Medicare about as much as they like any government program. So your remark dismissing "government health care" was hysterical dissembling.

the mass media and hysteria created by those concerned, telling us we all needed these shots is exactly the reason I didn't get one. I'll be damned if I was going to line the pockets of the politician's and the drug company's. Now, after it's died down, all you hear is the stupidty that was left it it's wake. We are all sheep, herded by the wealthy. We'll do anything they tell us.

I agree. I had no intention of getting either of these shots.
This has nothing to do with who is president, really, It does have to do with who is beholding to who, and that doesnt change. This was obviously a mistake , but that kind of mistake shouldnt be made. It wouldnt have been made if these shots werent being shoved doown our throats.
