    "Captain, oh my Captain!" Question the availability of medical care in Skagway today! Much of the health care system in the Great Lands are run by public, and quasi-public agencies. I can't speak directly to Skagway from direct experience, but I could hazard and informed guess.

    What was it like in the '60s? That's what the focus of this controversy is... something that I do not think is very controversial. Just another silly swipe at Palin about an issue that is not an issue.

    As you can see, Alaska was NOT Russian Territory. It was purchased from Russia in 1867 and was a US Territory (after being governed by the military) by 1884. It became a STATE in 1959.

    Even with your inaccurate information being said, I would question the availability of medical care in Skagway in the '60s. I'm not sure that Whitehorse was much better, but as the capital of the Yukon Territory, it probably was, so it would make sense to try to get the best medical care available.
    When I was born we only had 49 states.

    How is this hypocrisy? Canadian health care was not the all encompasing government run system in the late-1960s that it is today.


    Looks like Canada has its own illegal immigrants abusing our health care too.

    Funny stuff.


    How does her crossing the border into the Yukon make her an illegal immigrant? Furthermore, it is clear from looking at a map of the area that travel to Whitehorse would be easier and quicker than to any other city.

    Why do we even care about this? What relevance does it have to anything?

    Why does it always have to have relevance to you? Can't you just be normal for once?

    So you think this attack on Palin has merit?

    I don't care, I just wonder why you have to attack me because I just mentioned an aside because we were talking about states for a minute.
