    Well, you wanted pictures :)

    I am just pointing out how limited and silly memes regarding complex subjects are. They are a creative and visual form of yelling, without really caring about details. As you demonstrated perfectly.

    You're welcome. I am of the opinion, that pictures are supposed to make one think, or at least spark debate. Unless we are talking about boob pictures, then by all means, shut the fuck up :)

    I am of the opinion that I like memes when they align with my political or social ideology, but I think they're stupid and trivial when they don't.

    They're only that when I don't agree with their message.

    When I agree with them, they're a clever and creative form of expression. When I don't, I cry like a little baby.

    That is like saying, getting stabbed is much better than getting shot, so bring the knife! Repeal is the only way. Then look at why medical procedures are so high in cost compared to other western nations.

    So you like an echo chamber which consistently reinforces your own beliefs.. How open minded of you.

    Correction... Universal healthcare as a replacement is the only way...
    Obamacare was supposed to be a bridge to that anyways.

    I am sure. I was just demonstrating how memes are really nothing more than a rethorical device that doesn't allow much perspective.

    Yes, originally. But what we hjave now is all fucked up. We pay thousands of dollars before we are finally getting reimbursed for an over-priced medical procedure. We don't even have dental with that. If I have a crappy insuranc eplan, at least let me choose to have one, not forced with the threat of taking more money out of my pocket. It is now a tax, that is all. We are still not insured, unless we have cnacer, while getting hit by a bus, with a bad rash on our asses. That is not insuarnce to me. Out of pocket expenses should not ever be in the thousands of dollars. Certainly not forced.

    I actually have never been to Canada, even though I do not live that far from it. I am such a xenophobe...
