    The health care system in America is a scam. I did not realize how absolutely ****ty the health care system was in the USA until I moved to a country with universal health care.

    James Garner and Jack Lemmon in the movie "My Fellow Americans". They played 2 ex-presidents, one a Liberal, and the other a Conservative. Was funny as hell.

    My favorite, Havelock Vetinari "The Patrician", family motto:
    "Si non confectvs, non reficiat,"
    (if it ain't broke, don't fix it.) Although it is pointed out in the novels
    in which he appears, that "things that didn't work, frequently got
    broken."

    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
