It seems that where ever universal heath care system is implemented, it is never adequately funded despite how much money is thrown at it. Kinda like government Postal Systems - many are bankrupt.

In the end, it contributes to the eventual draining of the treasury unless drastic financial measures are taken. I don't see that happening anytime soon. That is what is occurring in Europe & now in North America.

I'm happy with our system in Canada & unfortunately like many other boomers, I'm taking more out of it as I'm now I'm a senior. Our system is not nearly as dreadful as is touted by the media & some politicians south of the border. Emergent situations are generally dealt with immediately & effectively. Things that can wait - wait.

But again, how long can our system remain solvent?

Re: exlabdriver

Seniors like you built this country. Don't forget that. smile Sure, us youngsters will carry you now with taxes, but it's time our generation sucked it up and took one on the chin for once.

I'll be older one day too. Hopefully it's not soylent green by then......

'Soylent Green' - I haven't heard that term since I saw the movie in the early 70s, ha! I seem to recall that the subject matter was somewhat controversial way back then.

The tax dollars are probably out there, but politics being what they are these days, there isn't the political will nor real leadership to deal with these matters. The can just keeps being kicked down the road...

Soylent comes from the book "Make Room! Make Room!" The idea for it was to have a simple, sustainable food source for the exploding population. Yeah, they got creative in sourcing some of the minerals, but that doesn't mean it's not a good idea.

I remember watching The Jetson's, and other shows where a meal was a simple pill. That was presented as a bleak view of the future, but I always thought it was an ideal.

That's why I've backed the future food project that took it's name from the that infamous foodstuff, Soylent. Like many crowd-funded projects there have been delays, but it'll be finally start shipping on the 21st. I'm excited about not having to find some crap, fast food every day, and just be able to take two minutes to drink down serving that has 1/3 of everything I need for the day, and costs me just over $3.

I was considering posting about it here*. I will start my own thread once I have the product in hand.

*I've also started taking some nootropic supplements, and will comment on that too.

Universal health care can not work. Too much immigration and aging population.

It's been developed to be completely flavor neutral (a little bit of vanillin, and a tiny bit of sucralose to cover the bitter/fishy flavors). So it can be flavored how ever you like.

I think that if we just have a government that was more about things being affordable and really about caring for its people that we wouldn't have all this crappiness (ALL political parties included).

Immigration: Do some background check, make 'em legal.
Taxes: Charge everyone the same % and get rid of loopholes.
Healthcare: Help people get regular medical care that they need as long as they are citizens and give true emergency care because the person is human (only requirement).
Smacktards: If a politician does something that is just stupid, fire them. (This also applies if they do nothing productive.)
Cookies: Everyone needs a cookie from time to time, but don't make some political big deal out of what type of cookie we should get. We don't need to be micromanaged by our government or our cookies.

Of course, this may spark some political firestorm, but please note that I am just trying to be light hearted about this. I just get tired of everyone "spinning" (lying) to make themselves seem better than the other group. Or making up stupid laws for P.R., or manipulating the system that they are supposed to make better, just because they can. This has gone on for so long and will only get worse with each presidency and elected person to the house or senate. It is like we've fallen back to some childish group of kids trying to play "king of the mountain." Climb to the top, shoving everyone else out of your way. Why not help others to climb the mountain with you? I guess that isn't how politics works any more.
