Socailized Medicine, France too Dangerous and Russia helped Iraq

Marko Kloos at The Munchkin Wrangler has a good post on the disaster that is socialized medicine. (Hat tip The Smallest Minority) Even the comments section is interesting.

I've always believed that if you wanted to see proof that altruism does not mean benevolence to mankind, one needs only to look at socialized medicine. That people suffer while on waiting lists, that doctors and nurses become scarce, that the cost of running a giant health-care bureaucracy pushes health prices through the roof, means that the people running the show just don't care about their results.

Sure there are doctors and nurses who do care about quality health care. I'm not talking about them. I'm talking about the people who run the bureaucracy and who don't care about the deteriorating level of health care as long as they get to go through the motions of pretending to help others. That is what altruism requires; that one go through the motions of helping others. Actually providing for a more efficient system that helps patients promptly is not required. Capitalism recognizes peoples' rights. Socialism does not.


Atlas Shrugs has a post on an exclusive story by The Sun about the British warning their citizens not to go to France.

With the flaming Fiats a few months ago and now the panic in Paris, I would say Jacques Chirac has lost control of his country. But is anybody calling for his impeachment? If not, allow me to be the first.

Dear Mr. Chirac:

You have failed your nation and your people and now the only proper thing to do is step down and let a new leader take over. Your mistake was in trying to protect peoples' feelings instead of their rights. Step down Sir, for France.


Expose the Left has a long post on Russia's helping out Iraq during and before the invasion and Iraq and al-Qeada connections which are now being discovered via recently translated documents from Iraq. (You will have to scroll down)

Russian involvement in Iraq seems to fit with a Front Page Magazine interview of March 1st 2004 By Jamie Glazov. Mr Glazov interviewed Ion Mihai Pacepa, former acting chief of Communist Romania's espionage service. According to Pacepa: "That was exactly what my old Soviet-style 'Sarindar' plan stated he should do in case of emergency: destroy the weapons, hide the equipment, and preserve the documentation."

He also says that he was in charge of Libya while "Moscow kept Iraq." The interview can be found here.

Today, …medicine provides a full range of high quality cardiac services: diagnosis and screening for modern medical equipment; full computerization of the operational process, which is achieved due to perfect, and sometimes even pinpoint accuracy when performing complex operations on the heart; high-quality surgery of heart valves, coronary artery bypass, cardiac catheterization, and a number of other operations.
