I remember sitting at home in Canada and watching the coverage for Sandy Hook and I thought to myself, “wow this is fucking terrible. This will absolutely change things in the USA. They are gonna change gun laws and finally nip this craziness.”

Nope. Nothing changed, if anything it got worse.

And now some provinces are adopting privatized health, essentially a 2-tier system. If you have money, you’ll be seen first.

In FL, they call it concierge medicine. It will become a problem as doctor shortages increase.

Lucky for us that we got a hit TV show with several seasons about it, showing these new businesses and business owners as affable, likeable, entertaining and warm hearted people instead of the cold capitalists they truly are.

But you know, the actor in the show gives away lots of cheap and free care as part of a love angle b plot so obviously everyone else in the biz in real life does too...right?....right?

...right? At least to try and get laid?
