I was just playing on your analogy; people are in such a hurry to scrap a system that has produced so many modern miracles, it just really amazes me.
I agree , maybe I'am wrong but 85 % of Americans like the health care they have ? Of course , we should always look for improvements in everything we do as a nation and as individuals .

As for the second one: no. quality healthcare is not a natural right(last I checked - there is no naturally produced healthcare system - doesn't grow on trees or appear in nature, was not handed down in the 10 commandments or Koran, and is not spontaneously occuring in the universe), nor is it implied or guaranteed in our Constitution.
When we can provide health benefits to 100% of our citizens for a fraction of our defense spending, yeah, I say do it. It's not ridiculous, it's enlightened. To that end, i'll leave this discussion with a quote.

Ahh, we should do it because it's enlightened. We'll I can't claim to be so. Where I come from when you take money from a man's salary and give it to another it's called theft.

Fortunately (unfortunate for you I am sure) chances are very good that my children won't turn out to be conservative.

I'm not one of your yo-boys back on the block, dog. You can try to talk down to me if you want but you're not as smart as you think you are.

Re: Obama Care

Sorry guys, but Trample versus Saden = lamest internet beef of all time imo. Don't get me wrong, I love a good flame war, but neither of you guys scored a single shot that made me laugh. Why don't you call a truce?

Stop asking silly philisophical questions. Just consider the source and agree that it is a "right" to "quality" health care. Now pay up buddy. We need more of your money to fund someone else's "rights".

If the answer is readily available it's not much of a philosophical question.

You can check my posts, I am well on record that our Defense spending is outta control, but its not getting cut anytime soon. And I would love to see proof that we can give 100% coverage for 100% of health issues for a fraction of the current defense spending. You can't, the costs skyrocket faster than the space shuttle, and if you try eventually you end up limiting what can be done - in other words denying some level of healthcare to someone.

As for your quote, it seems to more appropriately apply to those who see government as a solution when the government has repeatedly proven itself inept at any type of reasonable fiscal constraint.

Re: Obama Care

and even without cutting the military, did we really need to spend 550 million on this?

Work begins on world's deepest underground lab - Yahoo! News

cool - maybe
necessary - not

Footnote- the article does not specify the source of the funds, but say "scientists, politicians, and others" were on hand for the opening. Seriously, who else would pay to find "ghostly particles"

When the response, such as this one from Desmond Tutu, is complete and utter bullshit, it's not much of a philisophical answer.

I'm sure the nation's doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals will snap-to and offer themselves up as slaves after reading this crap from Tutu.
