RE: A little of subject, but when did that stop anyone

I am happy to report that the missionary work that will be going on from the trip that I volunteered for is more in meeting the people's needs. I have been to a church in the past where even I was offended at how strongly they came off. I am not going to mention denominations but I can tell you there is a huge range of churches out there! I don't think the group will be focused on converting people in their face, but merely showing kindness by fixing plumbing, if they have it, making their homes livable. These people are golden, they have worked with children with AIDS in Africa...

As far as my "name" - once again, I don't drink at all! "Beer" is my hon-ay! Maybe I should change it to Beerlicker! ; ) Sorry, no witchcraft either...

As far as cars...my choice would be a really fast BMW, with a killer stereo and it would have to be a six-speed, automatics suck! Naturally, "Beer" likes Hummers!!!! LOL!!!

RE: A little of subject, but when did that stop anyone

First off,
Matt, I have lived in both the US and Canada, and sorry to disappoint you, but the actual cost of living is cheaper in Canada.

And Dave, yes, he would have to pay more in taxes, however, there is NO cost after that. Also, there is no wait for cancer treatments, or most treatments for that matter. Generally the waits are for surgeries which are non-life threatening.

And if someone is waiting for a transplant *your example is very bad* it's not because of anything to do with the government, it has to do with a lack of organs available.

So out of the arguments made, taxes are really the only viable one. So I ask you, When you're sick, do you have to weigh the pros and cons of going to the doctor.. and worry about what it will cost you.. or do you just go? If you are in a car accident when one of your muscle cars goes careening out of control, and you're the one at fault.. who is going to pay your medical bills?
Or, what happens when a family member gets sick, and the family doesn't have insurance.

I appreciate your limited opinions; however do some more research before you criticize a system and a government you know so very little about.

Suicide over a forum about a poll for robotic roommates is just obnoxious. Someone smells like an attention whore.

"Actualy, thats a good idea. Killing myself.

.

Great."

Read that, especially the part I chose to highlight. Read it over and over, then slam your head against the monitor repeatedly.

DM-

Everyone has it bad off. Everyone cant see anothers problems for thier own. Yeah, you can say you had cancer and lost a g/f and want to kill yourself because you have no friends. Well heres some points

1: better to have loved and lost than never been loved at all. Yeah, i got plenty of issues there myself but i dont feel like talking about them to pure strangers. You want me to say then ask but i dont go talking about it when no one wants to hear

2: What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger
You are still alive. Count yourself lucky. All too many cancer patients die from it or end up with notably decreased lifestyles because of it. You are fine, you are making due with life. Appearently its not all that bad.

3: Do you stay totally seperate from everyone at school? Or do you just feel that since its superficial and you never do anything with them outside of class that it doesn't count as a friendship. If thats the case you are in the EXACT same spot as about 30% of the population who doesn't have the time or contacts to have real friends. If you think you have come this far only to kill yourself then why did you waste everyones time so far? Things are ****ed up now, well live with it. "run straight down a path of no regrets" it makes life a lot easier. If you need someone to vent to, keep a journal so when you do find a good friend who cares about you they can read it and see what kind of things have gone on in your life. Dont blow it out on the net.

RE: A little of subject, but when did that stop anyone

uhhhhh I dont think dragonmaster is with us anymore......

uhh....well...As I was saying. The canadian judicial system sucks. Universal health care is for hippys who have no work. nothing good has come out of canada. exept for maple syrup and bacon, and guess what, if you can get off your ass and get a real job in this country with benifits, wich is easy as **** because all you have to do is get a job at a grocery store ext. than you dont have to WAIT AT ALL for "non fatal sergery". How would you like to go around with an arm that is dislocated or what have you and not be able to fix it?

And you said something about shortage of vital organs waiting for sergery. Well guess what, if they didnt give them out to any ****in bum on the street they would probally have a few to spare to the hard working citicins of the country. ( i think the count is up to 3 hard working citicens now) the rest just sit around and smoke pot.

And for my closing aregument just throw in what ever typical canadian steriotype that i have forgot to put in here, (preferabally something about the mounty)

Dave

Well Dave, glad to see that you don't have a real argument, and you have just reverted to playground name-calling. When you have actually studied our system we can talk... and I don't know where you were going with your digression on the judicial system.


By the way.. I have no idea what a "citicins" is nor do I know what a "mounty" is.

Have you been taking spelling lessons from DM?

RE: A little of subject, but when did that stop anyone

The Canadian system of health care is almost the best in the world. In my experience, the Swedish system is the only better one...if you don’t already hold a prejudice against socialism. I commend Dragonmaster for pursuing a career that he feels would make him happy. Let the kid cook food and post his thoughts. I sense jealousy among his devoted group of detractors because they missed their opportunity to follow their own dreams. One last though; anybody here who actually defends American car manufacturers is one sandwich short of a picnic. I understand that you want to propagate your own economy but you fail to realize that ‘American’ cars are really made in Mexico and various other foreign countries. I recommend watching the Michael Moore documentary ‘Roger and Me’. You are contributing to quasi-slave labor when you purchase an American car. Granted, the predominant number of uninformed Americans would think that they are contributing to their own economy but, in the real world that the rest of us live in, you are simply contributing to your own demise. Outsourcing was the way of the past unless you are outsourcing your military to ‘Allah’s Great Sandbox’ for oil.

Dude, Dr.Z. nobody likes you

You're so stupid that you actually believe that buying an American car supports poor labor in Mexico. Wait, you didn't hear that, you stole it from some fat idiot (a.k.a Micheal Moore) and whatever he says is oviously gold. Now Canada they make some great cars, I mean airplanes, I mean bacon. Wait a sec, Canada doesn't make cars at all. Infact, the only thing Canada has contributed to society in the pass 20 years is Martin St.Louis. I reccommend you watch the movie "Finding Nemo", at least that movie you'll understand possibly.

RE: A little of subject, but when did that stop an

Dr. Z, I agree about Canada's medical-coverage system. In the US, sure you can get coverage at any supermarket. But image you are married with a wife/husband and two kids. The cost of extending the coverage to your spouse and children will suck most of your wages from your low paying job. In Canada it is simply taken for granted that you will be able to get prenatal care, or put in for a night at the local hospital when you are ill.

As far as the American automotive industry is concerned... I agree. The industry NOW is horrific. Unions (where they exist) do little for the workers, long days, poor conditions, discrimination, threats, physical saftey hazards etc. are rampant. I would never buy a new American-made car. However, 40 and 50 years ago the industry was much more worker-friendly. The days were long, but jobs were secure, time off was insured, and if you were injured it was paid for. None of this blazing into town, taking over the local economy and then pulling out when profits dipped a quarter of a percent. In fact, my grandfather's greatest ambition in life was to work for Ford like so many of his bodies back in the late 50's nd early 60's. I'm not saying it was all roses, but it was far from the tainted companies of today.

Dave, the bacon in Canada is great, but have you seen the cities? Have you been there? It's clean. The last time I was there I was shocked. There was hardly any refuse in the streets. People actually gave change to the very few homeless people I saw on the streets, and people said "hi" to one another on the street. I dunno, seemed nice to me.
