Government programs can be a great safety net, unfortunately they don't always bring out the best in people. I was being, oh...what's that word? Facetious?
Didn't work, did it.
And yeah, you got that right. Americans have never done anything to help out anyone. And now they have the nerve to dispute what kind of healthcare coverage they want. They got some nerve.
My response re humans (well, the ones I was talking about can hardly be called humans), was actually in response to GloriaJH's post. As for who makes the cut for me, anyone who abuses animals by burning them alive or kills a bunch of people while on a spree do not make my cut by any means and I seriously resent spending my tax dollars feeding, clothing and educating them while they are in prison. I'd rather see my tax dollars go to help those humans that need a hand up.
Facetious I actually do understand and I didn't think it was actually all that "facetious" - I thought it was pretty good. Sophmoric is another one I like as well.
I didn't realize Americans wanted health care - my understanding from most of these posts are that they did not want a national health care program because they don't trust the government to run it but the posts I did read are more about a better health "insurance" program. Not the same thing IMO.
Nerve? That isn't what I would label it as, but each to their own.
But, I digress - back to veterinary costs.
