    Nope. But you establishing a pattern. Leap, participate for a few posts, then go off insulting or misreading. Just curious as to why?

    I only tend to insult when insulted first...Such as your little "misreading" quip....I may not be a community collage teacher, but I don't misread anything....I just don't agree with your liberal view. That is just you lashing out because someone doesn't agree with you, and rather than trying to get me to agree with you by constantly telling me that it is me that misunderstands, you need to come up with coherent arguments.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Actually you do. I wish it were not so, but it is. I have asked you to tell m best way to point this out to you. No insult is intended, but it isn't possible to debate a misreading.

    And, I have very good discussions with may who disagree with me who don't misread. You've even commented on a few of them. I ask that seek to understand more than holding fast to a misperception.

    Well, allow me to turn the tables some then...You're the teacher, obviously you'd see a pattern if I am such a serial 'misreader'... Point out how, complete with examples of what you said, what I say, then where you think the problem is.

    I have done that, and you focused on your being insulted. But, I'm more than willing to it again in the future.

    Why "in the future" Joe? Why, with so much to choose from, examples should be at your fingertips....

    Ok. I'll go you your most recent misreading, though its a minor one.

    IMO, no matter what, it's pretty sad that we would ever have to even contemplate putting money before people. I hate that.

    The entire concept of triage must be unknown to people. It's almost as if they think resources are somehow infinite. I hate that.

    For those who do not know (and I have not read all billion pages of this thread) it does happen in the US. Where I live, at least, rehab nursing homes refuse to accept chemo patients because they are too expensive unless they are taking the bottom of the ladder cheap chemo pills only.
