Questions From the Consumer Trap Community?

goat-ears I’m never sure this blog matters.  Sometimes, I think the lack of comments is a sign that I’m pissing up a rope, or high on my own fumes, or something akin to that.

Sometimes, I fancy that it might only be a sign of how unfamiliar my/our angle of vision is.

Other times, I think it might be that I simply don’t ask y’all directly to give it both barrels.  Or maybe…Or maybe…

But the truth is that, if you read this blog and care about the issues it addresses, you might as well propose topics, ask challenging questions, or even send things you want me to post under your byline.  It ain’t rocket science, after all.  It’s just watching reality.

Having said that, do you people have questions you’d like to investigate and have us elaborate/debate here?

Remember:  There are no bad questions!

As the Democrats Stab Your Back…

truthCanada spends half of what we do per capita on healthcare and they do have some waiting lists, but they’re really not as bad as the right wing portrays them. The waiting lists are a result of their level of spending. Our problem in the US is we spend a lot of money but we have a bad system. In Canada they have a good system but they just don’t spend enough money on it. We have great hospitals and great nurses and well-trained doctors and lots of fancy technology. We have what we need, and yet we still can’t take care of patients because the financing system doesn’t work.
