"Think"

David Frum calls the U.S. healthcare initiative a "disaster".

No, not because it doesn't do enough or go far enough.

He calls it a "disaster" because it's a plan to actually provide healthcare to people.

Which he doesn't think is a good idea.

He does think providing things that blow people up is okay though.

Oops, he got fired from his "think tank".

No, not because it's mean to "think" the government shouldn't provide healthcare to people.

See, the people in his "think tank" also "think" the government shouldn't provide healthcare. (They "think" that if you're bleeding, you should always pay for your own bloody tourniquet. They also "think" that providing things that blow people up is okay.)

He got fired because he "thinks" the republicans let the government pass the healthcare initiative.

Huh? Wait a sec. If I remember correctly, the president of the U.S. is a democrat. I'm pretty sure democrats are supposed to "think" the government should provide healthcare. Maybe that's why it passed.

Not exactly a "disaster".

  1. It's amazing how many people I've talked to actually agree with David Frum. There is a cultural difference between Canada and the US which is that in the States most people think that you are not responsible for your neighbour. That's what I think it comes down to. KJ
