Thank you, LB and Shannyn:
This old woman has lived all her 69 years under one Single Payer system or another. First in Germany, then in England and later in the US as the wife/widow of a member in the USAF, and now under Medicare/with the government-funded militaryTricare as the supplemental insurance.
While all systems have their problems,
none operate as “Medicine For Profit”.
The above cartoon should be run on every news station in the nation, for it makes the case in a way that even a third graders can comprehend.
Yet I know the flaw in my reasoning:
The mentality of the “Don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up” crowd.
I have sent letters to my representatives
expressing my thoughts, but it will not do any good, other than make me feel I did all I could.
I like the spelling of the title “Inglorious Basterds”.
May I add “insincere, self-serving”?

First comment, and into moderation I go.
I am new at this, though I have been a long time admirer of your writings, as well as those of AKM, Gryphen, Diva and Ann (She of the Strong Heart!). I admire your intelligence and determination.
My last couple of facetious sentences were probably what tripped the wire?
Just cut what you must. I do not yet know the protocol. My apologies.
Please let me know where I went wrong.
