claytonic Posted July 8, 2008 Author Report Share Posted July 8, 2008 p.s. those of you in the USA who are whining about paying approx US$3.50 per gallon for gas, have a thought for us Down Under who are paying approx US$5.40 for the equivalent... And that's NOT a joke! hey, I know it is not a joke, but I would gladly pay that amount if I could have this: healthcare in Australia I just watched "Sicko", Michael Moore's film about the health care crisis in the USA. I just CANNOT believe what I was watching.... people being treated like trash, tossed out of the hospital just because they could not pay the astronomical medical bill. And people who actually HAVE insurance but the insurance company finds every loophole to NOT pay, so these people end up living their old age in sickness and poverty, having sold home to meet medical bills.. What a contrast to France, where no one is turned away and college education is free!. I guess they have the money since they didn't spend it on war.... (sorry guys, I just couldn't help that swipe.....) (I know this doesn't belong in this thread but somehow I remembered the conversation with djs111 which started from the gas price situation months ago.)
