So weird. You'd think the Conservatives would have fixed everything by now.
Someone piss in your merlot yesterday? I'm repeating what I heard on the radio by some economist. But feel free to be sarcastic blah blah blah, you're exhausting.

None of this occurs in a vacuum- healthcare has been privatized since George Washington first said "screw you, I got mine" and saved the...
Sudden realization that Richard Simmons was never in that great of shape.
