vets don't vote correctly, so they don't matter.

I thought it was "vets don't vote correctly, so they don't get ballots".

p.s. I especially liked the part with the love letter and "abandon your unit and then [government-run healthcare] will care when you get sick". Just gotta show that you share the Left's contempt for America, and then government workers will feel like you're their comrade and move you to the front of the line. Will remember that for when I'm on BHOCare some day.

p.p.s. Then again, BHOC will be more like BYOC, so maybe it won't matter then.

How is the BYOC supposed to deal with the shortage of supplies?

I don't think government-run healthcare will cause a shortage of supplies in the country, just in that system. I.e. Sandra Fluke can still go down to the local Target or Walmart and get birth controls pills for $9/month (although I can't imagine her needing them), she just might not be able to always get them "free" from her "daddy" (big govt.).

You do not grasp, the way bureaucrats do, the power of scarcity.

Pray do tell? (Expecting a govt. buying spree on HC supplies, like they're doing on bullets?)

Government regulation of anything (housing, healthcare, whatevs) inevitably leads to scarcity, rationing, and the blaming of Bush.

For things like mortgages and student loans, I thought government sticking its grubby paws into things made them too plentiful. Probably also what farm subsidies do.

I would just say that government intervention in the free market creates imbalances. (Which then creates bigger problems than just that.)

Keep an eye on "inevitably". Right now, the "free" money has been driving education costs through the roof. See Reynolds [amazon.com] .

Vets don't vote correctly (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about 2 months ago | (#47234623)

Ah, so that's why the republicans voted against the vets. Scandalous indeed.

Hey, isn't our political system all about piling up victim groups and abusing them?

Re:Vets don't vote correctly (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about 2 months ago | (#47236135)

Well, according to you, only half of it is. Your partisan whining will continue to fall on deaf ears and be subject to well deserved ridicule.

Has d_r shared his Kool-Aid with you?

Re:Vets don't vote correctly (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about 2 months ago | (#47236297)

:-) d_r was made in your image. His politics is just as tribal and primitive as yours. He completes your circle.

Re:Vets don't vote correctly (1)

smitty_one_each (243267) | about 2 months ago | (#47236505)

Well, the both of you are superior, evolved beings compared to my culturally illiterate, barbaric state.

Re:Vets don't vote correctly (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about 2 months ago | (#47236585)

You stand side by side with him. Accept and embrace it. It just might help your self esteem and to separate yourself from your "culture" (that you both share 100%), which is indeed quite barbaric, but not necessarily illiterate.

No, I'm for the individual as the starting point for analysis, not the group.
