    @vincent, clever. ha!

    I believe anyone living in NYC or California or who is black would like to compare Obama to JFK, Malcolm X, and Jesus but…you know better.

    😐

    Elect him. Watch him fail. Have a ‘black’ president who is only half black and acts and dresses like a GAP ad. Victory for black people…sorta but not really and victory over what?

    But wait that other guy is old?

    Man I wish it were easier to vote for the guy who will single handed run the universe for us.

    Vote Giant Douche!

    I think the only think that Obama can’t do that JFK could was bugger Marilyn Monroe. The circumstances are quite similar: scrappy and ambitious young minority (JFK was Catholic, which back then was as bad as being black) vs. crabby, out of touch old curmudgeon who represented the status quo.

    Although I don’t think Obama will need the Mafia to take Ohio. At least I hope not.

    There was only one JFK. There will never be another. Obama is closer to something JFK wiped off the bottom of his shoe…

    Well Obama says McCain doesn’t understand the economy (Which he admitted to) and then he comes and says health care to all welfare etc etc. Because that has shown to work every time in an economy thats slowing down, right.

    One is to wonder exactly the magnitude in which America will be sodomized by the worst running candidates since a long long time, seriously.

    We’re all fucked. We just don’t know how much at the moment.

    Yeah, cuz every other first-world country on the planet provides universal healthcare, and they’re just doing terribly. And when FDR started rolling out government programs in the US to help those who needed the most help back in the 1930s, that was just terrible too. Cuz we all know that when you have a healthy, robust middle class, the rich reeeeally suffer.

    Why is it that those on the right doesn’t understand basic economics? Actually, why is it that those on the right react violently to common economic sense?

    It’s different when “every other” means 6 European Countries and Canada.

    I’m pretty sure they tried that in Brasil. Doesn’t look pretty at all, and this is a country with a stupidly high GDP.

    Plus the concept of Socialism is I’m the big guy, I’ll give it to you. It’s self deprecating, Americans are crafty and ingenuous, we don’t NEED your help, thank you very much. Get over the fact that you’re too lazy to make it. If a mexican with 12 bucks in his pocket makes it to multi-millionare status then a middle class white kid can too.

    Listen, the CIA – that’s the Americans – recognize 35 developed countries including Taiwan (technically not a country according to the CIA.

    Thirty 33 of those countries have universal health care. So if you’re saying that San Marino and the Vatican are gross exceptions than I’ve got news for you idiot.

    In other news, how is Obama anything like JFK?

    Seriously, though, Japan is a total socialism. Oh except the fact that they have the freest market on earth, and follow the principles of classic capitalism more closely than any other country on the history of earth. But I mean, beside their open market and policy and everything else that makes them the archetypical capitalism they do have socialized medicine which Adam Smith wasn’t against SO THEY MUST BE FUCKING COMMIES USA #1 Also: USA totally a capitalism I mean look, capitalism is based on incentive right: The American Upper Class has the incentive to be born because of the… Read more »

    Just because i didn’t list all 33 countries that have Universal healthcare (Not to mention what kind because the US has Healthcare… if you pay for it, just not compulsory Health insurance), most of them are administratively small with a fraction of the US population. Logistics play part in keeping everything running on a country the size of a continent, whether hospitals are supplied with medicine and running, and all doctors don’t open clinics or commit suicide from poor pay because we just don’t have enough money to pay for 18 million usually high paid personel with YEARS of study… Read more »

    Either way our health care system right now is not efficient. Everyone should be able to have decent health coverage and cannot. If you do not have the right insurance to the doctor you need, you cannot be seen by that doctor. Insurance companies LOVE the system thanks to good ol capitalism. I know America tries so hard to be different from the rest of the world(we are such rebels) but we could really learn a thing or two in all matters. Doesn’t matter anyway though, because at the rate we are going, USA is going to be a subsidiary… Read more »

    So what you’re saying, now that you’re changing your story, is that Universal Healthcare isn’t Socialistic, it merely would require too much systemic change to make it effective? I don’t know if you noticed this but, when faced with the prospect of actual competition with actual functional capitalisms, the US economy is nosediving down the shitter faster than the Republicans can flush. So maybe – just maybe – some systemic change is in order. And get over yourself. America payed out to Europe and Japan before either of us were born. And they already payed you back by buffering you… Read more »

    It is a complete bullshit statement that the U.S. economy is failed. It is the strongest economy in the world. All other economies are tied to ours. If our economy falls, then all others will as well. The U.S Is the largest importer of foreign goods. The Chineese, Japaneese, Canadian, ect would go bankrupt if the United States ceased to exist and import foreign goods.

    And if universal health care works so well in Canada, why does anyone who can afford to, travel south for their medical care?

    America was built on principles that reward hard work. Now you want to over tax the successful in an attempt to reward highschool drop-outs, teen mothers, dead-beat fathers, and illegal immigrants with free healthcare and food. And how do they spend my hard earned tax dollars? Putting 24 inch rims on a busted ass cadillac, a new pair of Air Jordans, and a gold chain around their neck. I am sick of you Democrats taxing me to support people who drive Escalades and can afford to dress better than me. You preach “change”. Well I have a news flash for… Read more »

    “Now you want to over tax the successful in an attempt to reward highschool drop-outs, teen mothers, dead-beat fathers, and illegal immigrants with free healthcare and food. And how do they spend my hard earned tax dollars?”
    Right now we are taxing the middle class to bail-out the so-called successful who run their companies into the ground. $85 billion bail-out to AIG? That’s enough to pay for 6 months of healthcare for everyone in the US. We are already living in a socialist state. Profits are privatized, losses are socialized.

    “And of course the poor has the incentive to rob and steal for their daily meal because they have no opportunities to receive a basic education” Every American is bound by law to attend school until age 16. People “choose” not to go to school. It has nothing to do with social class. Poor people have the same education opportunities as the very welthy. You could argue that they have an even greater opportunity. Free school meals, Hope Grants, Pale Grants, ect… It is the lack of self motivation that holds people back in the American education system, not lack… Read more »

    @the3g_ipwn: Racist much? If you’d pull your head out of your ass (where I’m assuming your radio is, as you sound like Rush Limbaugh’s parrot) you might start to realize that those folks who don’t have healthcare instead go to emergency rooms for their medical problems, where the hospitals, by federal law, are required to treat them regardless of their ability to pay. Who do you think pays for it then? Why do you think aspirin is $50 a tablet? Why do you think you’re paying $250 a month for healthcare even if you’re as healthy as possible? The truth… Read more »

Ever. Don’t know why they would. The hospital is pristine, the ambulances are quick. My doctor is generally ready to see me. “over tax the successful” How is a wealthy inheritor paying 0% and getting massive taxpayer funds in corporate welfare, corporate bailouts, and other government payout programmes… Read more »

    reboot: That tax money comes from everybody. My tax rate is around 17% before medicare and social security. The upper class pay upwards of 30%. Don’t play on the middle class. We are not in your corner. The middle class have struggled from poverty, generation by generation, to be where we are. It is the people who have given up the struggle and accepted your handouts that you cater too.

    You call me a racist? Why? Because I used the words welfare, Cadillac, and Air Jordans in the same phrase? If the fucking shoe fits, wear it. Don’t hide behind delusions that I am the bad guy hell bent on holding all other races back. If people don’t want to fit in that category, may I suggest stop selling crack to kids to pay for new rims for the Escalade.

    WTF is a Pale grant? I’m assuming you mean Pell grant. When I went to college Pell would cover a whole semester, now it only covers ~10%. Thankfully I had Belle Zeller Scholarship and didn’t have to worry about it after Fordham.

    about the right and politics. Take a basic econ. class and what do they say, government regulation and intervention are bad. Who wants to regulate the market more than anyone else.

    BTW, I’d be shit scared about what Obama said and redistributing wealth.

    @Caio,

    And how long is the average wait in Canada for a medical procedure?

    What country has the best five year survival after a cancer diagnosis? Its not Canada, it’s not any country with universal healthcare actually. It’s the U.S. And why? Because privatized medical insurance actually pays doctors.

    @njch412 Dude, I have an MBA, I’ve taken a lot more than basic econ: everyone has their opinion on gov’t regulation, but NO ONE but an idiot thinks it’s inherently “bad”. Some are in favor of more regulation and some are in favor of less but everyone knows you need some. Like most anything else, government works best with a balance of power vs. freedom… the Republican party has been tilting it towards “freedom” for the last 28 years, and the current economic turmoil is in large part due to this. This is the direct result of the fat-cats making… Read more »

    Deuce is absolutely right. I’ve been pretty tl;dr lately so I’ll just say:

    1) Libertarianism is Punk Rock for grown ups, and realistically the republicans don’t really practise it, unless you believe in Republican chain mails.

    2) What a lot of people “know” about Obama’s economic policy comes from chain males.

    In most first world countries, Obama would be called economically conservative. He’s certainly more of a capitalist than McCain is.

    Check out his website sometime. I think you’d be surprised what you find.

    You should become a politician, njch, because you just managed to write two entire lines without saying a single thing.

    Canadians go down to the US for medical care because of only one thing: Time. The Canadian medical care is far superior to the US medical system, but the problem is that it is a system that is currently overworked. The US, with its current healthcare system, has allowed Canadians to go down there and get faster care when it is necessary. The fact remains that healthcare in the US still also has problems and to start a universal healthcare system there will be most difficult (not impossible).

Anyway, the fact that we clearly hold the label “black president” for obama is further proof that we really haven’t come as far as many think. Honestly, I want to see colour of the skin reach a point where it is no different than hair. I am BY NO MEANS saying its wrong to call Obama a black president. Rather, I am saying that since we recognize this as a breakthrough (which yes it is) we still havent come full term. The day racism is… Read more »
