try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

It never fails to crack me up to see socialism as a (very long) dirty word.

I always get "You are a SOCIALIST" on all those "what is your political persuasion?" memes. I'm not, really, but I do think that Socialists make a lot of good points. However, getting a national health system doesn't have anything to do with socialism. It's about human rights, IMO.

Absolutely. I've long believed that as a society we have a duty to protect each other, and one of the things we can do is spend some money on healthcare for all those that *need* it, instead of just for those who can afford it.

That's why I find my work so fulfilling really; I know I'm a bean counter and that hardly saves lives, but every bean I manage to save us goes back in the pot for everyone else, and you never know when you may need it.
