But can pull up to your local pharmacy with their own clinics and practitioners, and get treated with almost no wait for 20$, and no appointments necessary? Probably not.

But that's probably all based on bad science, now ... isn't it ?

Westerners (California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington) ARE Americans.
We don't hate ourselves. Tongue

Now - Northerner and Southerner - have definite upper limits.....

Except that isn't what I said, now is it?

I'd suggest you go back and read the very first sentence in my first post:

This is a clear indication that I understand that my country has prolems ... which is kinda exactly the opposite of the view you're imptuing to me.

As for "fuck off", that has everything to do with your being supercilious and condescending to me personally, without bothering to ask what I meant by that sentence, and nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that I believe "we're 'Murrica, so fuck off!"

If you don't like being talked-to that way, perhaps you should exemplify the behavior you wish to see? Just a thought.

You have absolutely no idea what my life experiences have been, and what insights I might have to the problems you mention. Zero. Your assumption that I reside in smug complacency is just that -- an assumption. I feel no need to humor your sloppy thinking, nor any need to conform to your preconceived notions about me.

And here's another two assumptions of yours -- that I hold a patriotic mindset, and that I'm happy only for being better-off than others in my country, because 'Murrica. I'm happy because I have enough to keep me alive, because I have the opportunity to continue earning my way through life, and based on my personal experiences, I'm very aware of the need for social injustices to be addressed in my country; and I work to ameliorate them when and were I can.

Maybe you should get to know someone before you start opining about them? It'll make the conversation easier, and the removal of feet from mouth unnecessary.

Actually we are the third furthermost west country after Singapore and Australia.
Everyone is east of us. So really we're the true westerners.

All those Pacific island nations want a word...

Not sure what you mean by that.
My local doctor is in a building that includes a chemist(pharmacy) AND a dentist as well. If its an emergency, they look at me straight away, if its not an emergency then perhaps I wait 10-15 minutes while I read some magazines. No biggie.

And guess what? I don't have any medical insurance at all.

Out of curiosity, when it comes to your pay check, is there an area that indicates how much of your income goes toward funding healthcare? Or do you know that?

What would you say your tax rate is?

Don't think I can hate what's keeping the Russian cumsock president at bay.
