    America has two single-payer systems currently - one is the VA (Veterans Administration) for qualifying veterans and Medicare for qualified elderly and low-income earners. Individual states also have Medicaid, which is really an extension of Medicare. Everyone else pays out of pocket either to an insurance company which colludes with the AMA (American Medical Association) to reduce prices in exchange for buying insurance (prices are artificially inflated in order to provide cover) or pays the inflated prices for care as needed.

    Well this was unexpected!

    Cancer-hit Senator John McCain: To hell with loudmouths! - BBC News

    Dunno if overseas posters can see the link. It's of Senator McCain on his feet addressing (I assume) the Senate. He's using the occasion to call for an end to the bipartisan tactics which crippled Obama's administration and is (thankfully imo) crippling this one. While I might agree with the general sentiment, having Trump (or even worse, Pence) in the WH rather neuters the case...

    It scarcely qualifies as communication, does it. I already got bonus points for recognizing Johnny Carson at all.
    That is my bad. I was looking for a pic of someone with a crystal ball. I didn't like any of what I saw and remembered Carnak and thought it would convey the same message. I searched and couldn't find any connection between Sen McCain and the Carson Cancer Center at Faith Regional Health Services, I had no idea that Cancer Center had anything to do with Jonny Carson.

    Like I said earlier, I could do better.

    Yeah, me too: just realised I duplicated Patsy's post on the previous page...)

    Besides...
    Certain old men prefer to rise at dawn, taking a cold bath and a long
    walk with an empty stomach and otherwise mortifying the flesh. They
    then point with pride to these practices as the cause of their sturdy
    health and ripe years; the truth being that they are hearty and old,
    not because of their habits, but in spite of them. The reason we find
    only robust persons doing this thing is that it has killed all the
    others who have tried it.
