The facts are in, the American healthcare system is one of the worst in the developed world.

The report’s authors were particularly critical of the availability of guns, writing: “One behavior that probably explains the excess lethality of violence and unintentional injuries in the United States is the widespread possession of firearms and the common practice of storing them [often unlocked] at home.”

In other words, socialized medicine and responsible gun control lead to a longer healthier life. Cue conservative outrage

Here we have a piece written by an obviously staunch Obama supporter.  An individual who would seem to believe the American health system can be heading towards an upswing, supported by Obamacare… nevermind people paying more and more for insurance.  I know single mothers paying close to $600 per month.  I know people that sell insurance for a living whom have said that Obamacare is and will be a feeding frenzy as the insurance carriers smell blood.  And, to top things off, the author and the apparent report states that guns are one of the primary causes of decreased life expectancy within America; what’s funny is neither I, and every single person I know, have ever known someone to die from a firearm… yet we are told it is oh so prevalent.  Never mind the processed shit you call food you shovel into your mouth.  Never mind the drugs that are quickly hurried to drug store counters to turn a profit.  Never mind the genetically modified food you eat, continue to enjoy, and refuse to require labeling.  Never mind the water you drink, wash yourself, your clothes, and your dishes in, as well as cook with, is full of chemicals ranging from chlorine to fluoride to drugs.  Never mind the fact that any time you clean anything, anywhere, you are using chemicals, most of which you haven’t a clue about – you simply blindly trust the manufacturer.  Yeah never mind.  Let’s just blame guns and heart disease and cancer (but whatever you do, don’t mention the probable causes of the illnesses).
Well played DSWright.
