Happy 4th of July

Here’s my quote of the day, from Ezra:

It’s fascinating how much more concerned conservative types are with a Canadian who had to wait 3 months for a hip replacement than with the 18,000 Americans who die each year because they lack access to quality medical care.




  1. Not that I agree with socialized or otherwise-government funded health care, but those same conservatives should admit that they’re comparing apples and oranges: Socialized medicine is not the same as what any current presidential candidate is proposing.

  2. Yes indeed; I get tired of the “SOCIALISM! Buggdy buggedy!” people, who, if you asked, could not give you a working definition of “socialism” if their lives depended on it. At least know what you’re opposiing.
