I've long wondered what would happen when conservatives realized that Israel, a nation made of awesome thanks to God's special awesomeness, practices socialized medicine. I mean, if Israel does it, it can't be bad, right? We're always supposed to do things the way those tough-minded, clear-eyed Israelis do it, right?
Um, maybe not. (Oh, yeah, that woman who yelled "Heil Hitler" to an Israeli citizen is, in fact, wearing and Israeli Defense Forces t-shirt. Your eyes are not deceiving you.)
In case there are any foreigners who haven't figured it out yet: when it comes to money, American conservatives will shit on you. Now and forever. More specifically, they will shit on you to defend some billionaire's money. What's even sadder is that they will never see a penny of that billionaire's money or gain any real material benefit for all of their shitting.
Look what they did to Great Britain. They've slandered the government of of one of our closest allies, implying that the National Health Service would let one of Britain's most prominent and respected citizens die because he would have been too expensive to care for. A few years ago, Great Britain was the one nation that "got it," that stood by the United States when Bush began his disastrous adventure in Iraq. To this day Britons continue to fight and die alongside our troops.
It all means nothing to them. Their outrage du jour demands that Great Britain be a nation goverened by heartless bureaucrats to whom human life means little or nothing.
I'm glad they believe in a philosophy of radical self-reliance because at this rate they're going to run out of friends pretty quickly.
