With all that neglect of the elderly in hospital it's probably just as well that the Queen doesn't have to be hospitalized that often.

She has the very best, private treatment. Of course if you have a monarch as a patient there is always the chance of an honour somewhere along the line...

Look at England.

Self defense is all but illegal. "Call the Constable, lad. He'll file a report." Guns are rare, but violent crime is rampant.

Everyone depends on the government for health care. With that worry "removed," they think it works. Except for the sick and dying waiting in long lines or thirsting to death in their unchecked beds.

We're just a decade or three behind, but on the same path.

America, America, God shed clear sight on thee. And crown thy past, with, at long last, a future...
