Enough Already

The P-I today has another article saying we shouldn't turn to the proven advantages of socialized medicine, we should trust in innovation, competition, and the American Way- the same blather we've been listening to in every sphere for forty years.

Let's be perfectly clear- this doesn't work. Our lifespan is falling, gas prices are rising, the economy is failing, even the end of the world is on the horizon of our American Way.

Enough already. Stop with the cleverness. I don't even want to hear it. There are parts of the world where they're getting it right, and that's who we need to copy. What we've been doing isn't just failing a few people, it's a juggernaut of self-satisfaction on a collision course with reality. When you hear the bell, it means one thing, and one thing only- ALL ASTERN, FULL REVERSE.

Well, what we're hearing now is the bell.
