Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

And by the way, don't think that Obamacare will cut out the insurance companies. It will simply mean adding another layer on top of the health care sandwich. You, the customer, will be dealing with the government, but the government will be utilizing insurance companies, and directing them. Since they do such a bang-up job with things like the post office and social security, we can of course depend on them to do a super-efficient job with health care too!

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
