I will go ahead and do a post on this, I think, before I go to bed.

Here be politics. )

I have opinions. You should read them and argue with me.

Another aspect to the healthcare debate, since it doesn't seem many people know about this:

The United States Government provides health insurance to members of the military. It is government funded, and all members of the military get it when they join. This coverage is also applied to their dependents, or immediate family. And, once again to the military retirees and their dependents, or immediate family. This all used to be under TriCare, but TriCare has been split and focuses on the retirees.

This is a big deal. This is why Dad won't let me get an active duty ID, even though I am eligible for one: because if I do not have my dependent ID, I am effectively without health insurance of any kind.

TriCare is unique in the fact that it is very affordable, won't bankrupt you if you do have an emergency healthcare issue, and does not look at pre-existing conditions.

But the keywords are it is government funded and provided. If you didn't think we had socialized health care before, which I don't get at all considering Medicare and Medicaid, TriCare is definitely another socialized aspect of our medical system.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRICARE I am not making any of this up.

This may not affect any opinions on my f-list as is, but it's also a good point to keep in mind if you feel like debating healthcare randomly.

THIS JUST IN: THE COLD WAR IS NOT OVER.

AS LONG AS THERE ARE NUCLEAR BOMBS IN THE WORLD, THE COLD WAR WILL NEVER BE OVER. NEVERMIND THAT THE ONLY COUNTRY TO EVER ACTUALLY USE THEM IN A WAR IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

RUSSIA IS NOT OUR ALLY. APPEASING RUSSIA IS LIKE APPEASING ADOLF HITLER OF THE 1930S. NEVERMIND THAT THE SITUATIONS WERE HISTORICALLY COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, AND RUSSIA IS NOT ANYWHERE NEAR A FASCIST, TOTALITARIAN REGIME.

OBAMA, HOW DARE YOU ACT SO WEAK. HOW DARE YOU. NOW WE'RE GOING TO HAVE WW3 BECAUSE YOU TOOK AWAY EASTERN EUROPE'S MISSILE SHIELD.

In other news, my Dad said I made him sick today. 8Db
