Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
get rid of all the fast food rests to help the obese, aka Moore.
also, i sometimes do hear people occasionally at work talking about politics, even older people, and they sound so stupid. i over hear stuff about how Obama is the second coming, or hes the anti-christ cus he has Hussein in his name, also the health care reform, people always compare it to Canada over here, not many Canadian lovers....i think hes just using this movie (doc?) to get money cus' hes out of it.
What do you think would happen if the government decided to run production on cell phones, computers, and TV's? Easy, supply would plummet, price would sky rocket. Capitalism has given rise to companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft, Sony, and many others which can keep putting out better products for lower prices. Sony just released the PS3 slim for a cheaper price and sales jumped 300%. Ironically, the price of the PS3 slim is $299, which is the exact same as the original Playstation originally sold for! (and look how much the technology has advanced).
When the government runs something, it's always more expensive overall. They don't care if their programs run at a deficit, they'll just tax more of someone else's money to make up for it. The only reason why so many corporations can charge so much for certain services is because they're in bed with the government anyways, and through absurd tax codes/subsidies.Quote
No i wouldn't, but I don't see what this has to do with Capitalism, I do it now through taxes.Quote
Health care used to work great in the US before all the regulations came in... nobody was left in the street to die. Can anybody honestly tell me, that there are doctors out there who would watch a person die after being brought into the hospital after a serious car accident? Does anybody think an emergency room doctor would look up the person's health coverage first, and then treat? It would never happen. I know that as someone who does eventually want to work as a physician, if I worked in a pure capitalist system, and I treated an emergency patient, and later found out that the person was homeless and had zero money to pay me, I would eat the cost of the treatment. I'll be making a 6 figure salary anyways, so it wouldn't bother me to treat those who need it through my own charity.
(this is the best argument to mention to doctors who lobby for universal health care, rag on them about being heartless and not helping people out of the goodness of their heart).
I done a quick google search on sweden and this is what I came across (not basing my whole argument on this article but it was an interesting read)
