This is why I love this guy, shame the U.S. doesnt have him as president.
Dennis Kucinich Sets Dr. David Gratzer Straight
Ah yes, I’m not surprised that psychiatrist David Gratzer testified this week that the Canadian healthcare system is just awful and how the poor deprived Canadians are simply pouring across the border to the Mayo Clinic to get specialized medical care.
Oddly enough, he forgot to mention that the Canadian government was not only sending them across the border, they were picking up the check. Yes, it’s a system so awful, even Canadian conservatives defend it.
How gratifying it was, to see Dennis Kucinich lay the smackdown on this guy.
You’re probably not aware that for the past decade or so, right-wing American groups have been pouring a lot of money into Canada to undermine their health system. (Can you guess why? I knew you could! So American health care corporations can make a killing there, too!)
Dr. Gratzer’s biggest thing is hammering away on wait times – even though the long wait times are mostly for non-urgent care. (You can read a rebuttal about many of the common myths here.) He also thinks the way to bring down the cost of prescription drugs is… to cut back on those pesky FDA requirements!
I am constantly running into people that lack even the fundamentals for critical thinking, often they will say “but everyone knows its that way” or “I felt better after I took that herbal remedy” or “they told me it was doctor recommended“.
Not having a critical outlook on things is not only foolish it can be very dangerous, thats why a video like this is great to give people an overall idea of how to think critically and why its so important.

Most people fully accept paranormal and pseudoscientific claims without critique as they are promoted by the mass media. Here Be Dragons offers a toolbox for recognizing and understanding the dangers of pseudoscience, and appreciation for the reality-based benefits offered by real science.
Well we all should know that cops are capable of many deceitful and sleazy tactics, this is one of the latest and while it chills me to be reminded how disgusting our so called peace officers can be I have to say I smiled happily to realize that these three assholes were caught.
Now I am just waiting for people to recognize the faces of these pieces of shit so we can expose them as cops in front of the entire country.
What a shameful act by our enforcement agency.
Here is a picture of the face of one of the cops from the video clip.
Lets try to get some internet power behind this, pass this image on to friends and friends of friends, lets see if we cant figure out who exactly these guys are.
I suppose I am in a particular mood but I happen to really enjoy pointing out how stupid the religious are. It seems the U.S. in particular is having an influx of religious fools lately and it is nice to remember that intelligent people tend to know better and don’t need the god crutch.
Too funny and sadly so true. After being fed up with Mormons bothering him this film maker decided to go around trying to convert Mormons to atheism.
The best part is when a Mormon bishop gets really angry and hits one of the characters with his rake.
Gotta love the religious folks, they really are that clueless.
Australian filmmaker John Safran is so fed up with mormons ringing his doorbell early in the morning that he flies to Salt Lake City Utah and tries to convert Mormons to atheism. Needless to say, the locals were not pleased.
