Death Care In Canadeath

I dunno 'bout everyone else, but I'm more than a little astonished that American opponents of universal health care and access to doctors and medicine and stuff like that there are actually pointing fingers and calling it "Death Care."

Like if you go to a doctor on a socialized medical plan, his sole aim is to kill you. And you had better not protest it, because somebody else is being forced to pay for it.

Blogger Audrey II, with her tongue firmly in her cheek, expands on that theme.

We "live" in Canadeath. Being born only to finally die. Wonder what people in other countries do when they're finished living?

In Conflict With Karma

I've said before that I don't buy into the idea of Karma.

One of the precepts of Scathach is, "Create your own reality."

You cannot do that if you embrace the principles of karma, which says that all has been pre-determined, and removes the possibility of being master of your own fate.

Think about it.

I Luuuuuuurvs A Good Rant

And this one by Lu Cifer is good!

"You've taken the clinically insane spewings of a woman literally to the right of Hitler (pardon my Godwins) and the 1984-like vision of a dystopian author and convinced yourselves that would be a good place to live. Big business is the enemy of the people, always has been. The ideal for the corporate class is to have a small pool of people rich enough to buy their fucking crap and a much larger pool of people so poor and with so few options that they can be used and abused at the corporation's whim."

I'd quote more excerpts, but I'd end up reprinting the entire article, and you'd have no reason to go follow the link. So go follow the link.

Er...possibly not work safe, depending on where you work... :wink:
