can't wait

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 19, 2007

Won't it be great when government-funded universal health care finally arrives? On that glorious day, the folks who run the post office and the license bureau will bring the caring professions within the reach of all.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Here in our country we have free health care. Problem is, with the government turning doctors into public servants and controling how much they can earn the only medicos that stay in the totally free system would be lucky to spend 6 minutes per patient. Try diagnosing anything in 6 minutes. Government controlled health care will never be funded adequately. Besides, human beings never value anything they get for free.

    don't make that too literal,...

    Or the great 'free' healthcare offered by the government to our military veterans. Oh, I'm just dying for that kind of 'compassionate care' to come to a hospital near me.
