Continuing on my two obsessions that no one else seems to care about . . .

Communist China continues its Brezhnevization.

Meanwhile, for those of you still angry over the federal Conservatives abandoning private health care, there is still one leader willing to embrace the badly needed heresy: Mario Dumont.

D.J.

The article cited described the audiences of Dumont as lukewarm to the revolutionary concept of private health care. That pretty much sums up the pacified Canadian majority thanks to their addition to entitlements, even in the face of poor or failing service. Bravo for Dumont for his efforts for at least raising the issue for debate. That shows much more courage than the Conservatives can muster. In Canada, the debate alone would be revolutionary let alone any change to the system.

How long before the Obama-nation sinks to the same level as Canadian health care with the resulting offshore and Mexican clinic industry becoming the equivalent source for timely health care as the US has been for Canadians? Perhaps even China, in competition with India might offer better (private) health care than what may be available in North America in the future.

Oops, it should read addiction to entitlements...

This isn't just Harper but the delegates, meaning average conservatives actually stubbornly continue to support Cuban styled Healthcare. The US may have fiscal problems but Universal Healthcare is Canada's fiscal iceberg. No wonder even Canadian conservatives support Obama. A conservative in Canada really is a Democrat in the US. I just can't believe conservatives think the status quo is fiscally tenable. Or they believe if they close their eyes and tap their dance shoes it will go away?

I care, Mr. McGuire.
You do good work and I appreciate you.

Your own site, however, is difficult to navigate, and not altogether user friendly.

In addition, after seeing you on a video on at least one occasion, you have good analysis, but you seem to need to have someone to draw you out.

If you were to become more of a pundit, more of a polemic firebrand, I think you would be a happier fellow, and readers such as myself would be happier too.
