The future of your children: Canadian Healthcare v. US Healthcare


Off-Topic Discussions

Qadira

Currently running a Poll in Nationstates.

Current Results:

1. US Citizens who want Canadian Healthcare should be able to direct their US Taxes to Canada to qualify. 22%

2. Not enough. I dont want to Drive to Canada for My healthcare. If a US state is made up of a Majority of people who want Canadian Healthcare, that US State will surrender its Sovereignty to Canada. If you dont like it, Leave. 48%

3. The Poor and ill need to suck it up and die for the Good of the US Economy. 13%

4. Obamacare will work. 17%

So, if Obamacare fails because Republicans are poisoning the well and Democrats are looking the otherway to get elected, will Canada have a refugee problem on its Border? Will it be neccessary for Canada to Take over the USA one failed State at a time until Universal Healthcare is in place?

On aasimar weapon proficiencies, yes. On RL hot button issues, no. While the boards give us a chance to vent or dispute things we hold dear, nothing we post really matters in the course of events. I'm beginning to believe that the political threads do more harm than good.

Sorry, couldn't pass up an opportunity to just be silly.

O ... M ... G! America will fail if we don't put universal healthcare in place! My God, how did I not see it before? Perhaps if Canada would be willing to host our illegal population from the many hellholes around the world, that would be a good thing. We could bus them to the Canadian border and let them head on in. After all, it's the land of milk and bandaids. Then those poor wanderers won't have to suffer through our failed theocratic-fascist government which turns people away at the hospital doors to die in the street, and they can go on to become citizens of the Great White North. It's a win-win!

Considering the other Poll where 200 US citizens said they would flee to Canada when the Obama administration fails and the economy goes to crud...I think the Cue at the Border will be a little long for any of those third world refugees you are going on about.

Are you saying the US will become Canada's Mexico? O god start building that 15 foot concrete wall with the alligator moat.

Bah, I heard more people saying they would go to Canada if Bush got reelected. That kind of talk is all well and good until you realize that moving to another country is kind of a pain in the ass.

Andoran

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
You can move to Quebec,
and piss off the separatists.

Heh heh Senor, I already have my Canadian citizenship. Cape Breton here I come, eh?


I've got a basket of tomatoes if anyone wants some. There's only about a dozen, though. Except those that fell on the ground . . . but you don't want those. Seriously. I use horse manure for my compost. Best stay away from the tomatoes laying in the mulch . . . .


you say tomatoe, I say

Remember, when you give Mr. Hughes the t.v. remote, hold it with a kleenex.
