    Prisoners have a better Diet, than Health Care Patients in Britain.

    B.O. "Care of the Future"..


    Prisoners have a better diet than Health Service hospital patients, scientists warn | Mail Online

    Patients in Health Service hospitals are far more likely to go hungry than criminals in jail, scientists warned yesterday. They say frail and elderly patients do not get the help they need with meals, and nobody checks whether they get enough to eat.

    Despite years of Government promises to tackle poor hospital nutrition, food still arrives cold, and patients often miss out because meal times clash with tests and operations.

    Someone who is walked to a meal 3 times a day by an armed guard eats with more regularity than anyone else.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    This is another misgnomer. I want concrete proof. Honestly, I am prone to never believe these stories ever again. They are propaganda released by the HCI and Pharma who want to keep us enslaved to them. They want to control our pocketbooks and our lives. They want us to pay them money and attempt to cover us with the least amount of care or cost. Sad thing is, people are clamoring to do so. A socialized medical system is hyper-demonized without thought as to why. The lies circulate over and over again through the public until people believe them. It's the way big corporations want it. They want people in the states to close their eyes to everything outside the US and adopt the rhetoric in order stir up fear and anger. The corporations don't care if they take your money nor that you die. They have no soul. The facts bear out that private health care doesn't work once you are truly sick.

    It will never work as a for profit system and take care of people at the same time.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Can you provide proof that this story is the product of the big bad Pharma Grinch?

    Alright... I spent 12 days in a Hospital, and lost 10 lbs. YOU try eating the food, and see what happens to you.

    The "Food" would gag a maggot.

    Losing weight tends to happen when one is sick.

    Wow. Food in hospitals sucks. Who knew?

    What headline will they think of next? Airline food tastes like old shoes?

    Good thing we have al these awesome reporters running around reporting things we didn't already know about.

    I've got news for you, buddy. Prisoners have better daily and long-term health care plans than most of us, too. And they don't pay a cent for it.

    My question to you is: Why should every convicted criminal in the US prison system (2.3 million of them and climbing) be given something of such incalculable value when even the most minimal of health care coverage is denied to some 50 million civilian Americans who aren't out there breaking our laws?

    But beyond all of this, can you provide any proof that Obama is going to adopt every aspect of the British health care system for America, and implement it exactly as they do?
