  • What's My Payment?  [View article]
    Mr. Quinn,

    in regard to your great articles, I would like to recall on your discussion on medical insurance, and how good the US is, and everybody treated in Europe would be dead, but in the US they would be treated to a much higher relyability.

    Please refer to this article from the Washington Post, and please don't do it down as some cracy article.

  • Why Healthcare Probably Won't Generate Jobs for a Recovery  [View article]
    So why does this blow your mind, people in the states have their own prejudice against anything else, and will not want to understand other points of view.

    This is how the god dam whole system works in europe. General medical aid for everybody, based on effectiveness, and a high quality based medical insurance for everybody that prefers it.

    Is this so damm hard to understand. The only thing I keep on reading is how people praise the US system, and keep on explaining how other systems can not work, when they not not understand the systems, and their own system is ineffective and crashing.

    And dont tell me that you dont need to wait for 2-3 hours when you go to hospital or the doctor. Been to the states and been waiting.

    Yes, very nice article. And again I would like to repeat what I just carry on repeating, since I have worked in the US automotive industry.

    You are not as prodcutive as you always like to present yourselfy, and you never listen to anything that anybody tells you - the US as general.

    I am always being told that Airbus will never do fine, European cars are to small, the Euro is crap, the terrorists are going to casue harm to the US and european healthcare can never compete with the US.

    Not to forget all the theories about how the bad communists in China can never compete with the US.

    Look at your own charts and then think again.

    In Culham/England, Munich/Germany and Cadarache/France there area Tokamak reactors, which is able to run a few second using Fusion technology with Deuterium and Tricium. In China, Hefei they are also running one. According to Wikipedia there are 21 Tokamaks running worldwide, 10 of these in Europe.

    OPtimist say that the first fusion reactors might be able to go online in 50 years. Till then humanity must do everything to expand the reserves of fusile fuel to the maximum.
    High tax on energy - and fuck those who need cheap energy to fuel their fat asses.

    One fool tells you that you are all fools. Typical answer from a dumb american (I suppose)

    but hasn't there always been some last minute rescue

    Dumbo, you don't rely on last minute rescues, you try to avoid them and prey that when it get hairy that it might work out, but you don't rely on it. That is what you are doing with Oil as well, dumbo, sit down and think before insulting other people.

    Great, I am starting to us typical US articulation in my sentences.

    Maybe teachers need to sit down once in a while and consider that students can also teach them something, sort of reminds me of the bankers of the last few years that always new what is wrong and right.

    Agree, there are a vast amount of means to generate a sustainable energy program, you need to start this better now than later, some of them like the fuel from corn did not work and need to be stopped, but how many other things that you did, did not work out.
    What I don't get, you are all calling for free markets, so why do you need a political will.
    Because the citizens and corporations of the US can not do it by themselfs, they are fat and lazy from eating Mac, sitting on your fat asses in your cars going shopping and just complaining about everything.
    You will drill down to the last oil well and suck it out and then start thinking. That is how the US works, and that is why you screw up everything.
    Your post war advantage is deminishing very fast, luckily for the world.
