Health Care for the Masses or Your Claim has been Denied!

There's a lot to this whole health care debate that's convoluted and complex, but there's one simple, indisputable fact: Americans that need health care have to pay far too much for it. In other modern, civilized countries, if you need to go to the doctor you can. If you have a broken arm or a case of the Mumps, you get treated by a government approved physician who fixes you up and sends you on your merry.

In this country, the first and most important question isn't what is your medical problem but what is your ability to pay. Forget what the hell is wrong with you, what is the size of your wallet.

"I'm sorry sir, but if you do not have the proper insurance you cannot receive treatment here. May I suggest the Free Clinic in Bartertown? Oh, and sir, I must ask you to stop bleeding on our carpets. Thank you, the exit is to the right. -Next?"

I love that vid.

Perpetuum Jazzile

Stranger over at Blah 3 ( a necessary stop on all tracks of the Intertoobs Express) posted this video and I thought it was so cool, I'd steal it from him (or continue the theft from his Facebook friend, Bobby)

Perpetuum Jazzile is an A Capella group from Slovenia that performs jazz and popular music. This video has seen 2.8 million viewers as of this posting.

Give it a listen.
(I love the thunderstorm effects)
