POLD: WE DO NOT YET HAVE A SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, THANK GOD. If the idiot in chief is re-elected and we do get a system like Canada and Great Britain, a great many doctors will leave the profession. Why, you ask? Because under that system they would be working for free, unless there is also major TORT reform. Why would any sane person spend a minimum of eleven years in school (4 years under-grad.; 3 years Med-School; 1 year internship and a minimum of 4 years Residency to get a job that pays maybe $150,000.00 per year when malpractice insurance is a minimum $125,000.00 per year: continuing education is around $25,000.00; employee salaries around $75,000.00 (Receptionists, LPN’s, Technicians’ etc.).

There was a lot of stupid in the presidential race this week. I’ve written about it all here. But I’ve been thinking about something for awhile. I’ve gotten sidetracked by the media every time I set out to write about it, but no more. Today, we explore the question: What will they think about us 50 years from now? What will they think of how we’ve tried to govern the country? What will they think of the arguments we’re having now?
