    As I am sitting in the waiting room to see my doctor I noticed a lady with a 3 yr old little girl. I have not yet brought my 8 yr old to this place because I feel more comfortable taking him to his pediatrician so I asked the lady if she felt this gp took care of her child, as opposed to a pediatrician. She must not have understood my question because her first response was that she was from norway and that her children received better health care there than here.

    Should I have started to sing the national anthem and then told her to get the hell out of my country?

    The "specialist" scam is central to what's wrong with UCA doctoring.

    Most of the specialists won't take patients who don't first get a referral, after a useless, make-work visit for $150 to a primary care doctor/referrer.

    The huge gap in generalist vs specialist incomes has caused a huge, disastrous deficit of generalist doctors.

    UCAers who haven't lived in other advanced countries simply don't know how other countries have organized their societies better FOR EVERYONE at all levels. Americans childishly keep believing American myths which are realistic as the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. You've Gotta Be Asleep To Believe The American Dream.

    Their mean income tax rate is about 30% higher than the US, and corporate tax rates only about 75% of what ours are.

    Whatever their tax rates compared to UCA is irrelevant.

    How a society organizes itself, ideally "greatest good for the greatest number", where good is security of various kinds, dignity, and physical comfort.

    The UCA has been perverted by the VRWC into "the greatest good for the fewest number", and that fewest number oligarchs/plutocrats is basically a closed, inherited club.

    Scandanvian countries or USA? Which has better reason to "go Egypt" on their establishments?

    443,000,000,000/5,000,000 = $88,600 @


    They took their oil/gas royalties from their considerable coastline (North Sea oil and gas) and pooled it into a very conservatively managed investment fund.

    They use a certain amount of interest from this pool to partially fund their government, and provide silly socialist things like parental leave, free college, and national health care.

    Gimmie that socialism any day.

    In 2010, Norway was also rated the fifth most peaceful country in the world in a 2010 survey by Global Peace Index,[16] and the world's most democratic country according to the Democracy Index.[17]

    Norway is a unitary parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy, with King Harald V as its head of state and Jens Stoltenberg as its prime minister. It is a unitary state with administrative subdivisions on two levels known as counties (fylker) and municipalities (kommuner). The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Although having rejected European Union membership in two referendums, Norway maintains close ties with the union and its member countries, as well as with the United States. Norway remains one of the biggest financial contributors to the United Nations,[18] and participates with UN forces in international missions, notably in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Sudan. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, and the Nordic Council, and is a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO, and the OECD.

    The Dutch did a similar thing when they were pumping a lot more gas out of the North Sea.

    Both countries took their gift of a common-good, natural resource wealth and distributed its benefits to the general populace. Dutch and Norwegian resource extractors have also done very well.

    Norway sounds a lot like the military. Minus the "dying for your country" part obviously.

    Moving internationally is extremely expensive ($10Ks, minimum), to say nothing of furnishing a new residence in high-cost country, and these countries just don't let any old refugee from UCA's huddled, unwashed masses show up, become a resident, and take advantage of their society, having paid nothing in.

    Germany, however, has a serious shortage of engineers and high-tech people. But of course they can probably fill that with Indians. And some you neo-Nazis could find plenty of German skinheads to hang with.

    That is why I will likely bring my already-educated ass to the table.

    I dunno, I haven't gotten very far into it yet. Just mulling options.

    Their gift of a common-good? Finders keepers, make a profit while the losers fuckin weep. If you don't like it - move to Europe because here in America we reward explorations and discovery. If finding oil or gas was so easy, don't you think everyone would be doing it? Yea, they would, so stop hating on the businesses that provide you with energy.

    Unless you live in a cabin and burn your own shit for fuel...then you're allowed to have a different opinion.
