Canada loses on guns but wins on drugs.

CSK time:

In my home province there was a huge grow up that had quasi-trained bears defending it. Bears.

My point is more: people aren't that likely to move to Canada because of Obama winning.

I don't understand what this is saying. That there are 85 million gun owners, and 11 of them killed someone yesterday? Sort of a "so what" stat if you ask me.

I think it's trying to point out that there are over 84 million responsible gun owners, so they shouldn't be judged by the actions of a small minority. I remember seeing something like that about Muslims a few years ago. Something like "952 Muslims didn't behead anyone yesterday."

An email an obese, lesbian, feminist friend of mine from high school days in Canada sent this out today, with links to her FB. I've cut the link but here's her main point:

I would have voted for Obama if I could have. And then I would be protesting THIS part of the Obamacare plan.. it is discrimination based on body size. These systemic discrimination and "incentives" have existed within US work places and insurance companies for a long time but it is very disappointing to read about the government endorsement.

The rest is the part in Obamacare where people can get health insurance premium discounts if they stop being fatties. Apparently rewarding good health behaviours is discrimination against fatties. Oh, the schadenfreude. smile.gif

Wouldn't fatness count as a pre-existing condition? Lol, so instead of actually erasing pre-existing conditions they've just changed it from an additional cost to a discount. Brilliant.

Actually I just read an article the other day that smokers and the obese consume less healthcare by cost because they die sooner. Maybe they should get discounts!

Smokers yes, obese no. We've gotten very good at managing the chronic disease processes obesity tends to bring.

Shouldn't all health care just be free though?

Is that rhetorical? Because I can't see a rational argument why not.
