Jake Johnson — Viral Video of Hospital Dumping Woman Into Freezing Cold Stirs Demand for 'Medicare for All'


Say again which countries are "shit-hole" countries.

Seriously, there are reasons that hell hole countries are the way they are. That is overlooked in the push to emphasis that the developed world cannot accommodate immigrating from the undeveloped world.

Regarding undeveloped countries, the pressing questions involve 1) development economics, and 2) historical reasons and current policy of developed countries that contribute to the problems.

However, there is no good reason for hell holes in developed countries with the resources and expertise to solve the rampant problems of under-devlopment domestically.

This post illustrates the issue within the continental US, and the plight of Puerto Rico reveals the problems for American citizens on US territory.

Again, which countries are the shit-holes?

Oh, and there is an uproar over what the president said about this. Well, he said that he was going to do away with the PC hypocrisy. How many people either say or think precisely what he is willing to say? 

Just about everyone in the elite and well-off? I thought so.

From the Old Testament, which the New Testament affirms is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Proverbs 11:12 He who despises his neighbor lacks sense, But a man of understanding keeps silent.

Proverbs 14:21 He who despises his neighbor sins, But happy is he who is gracious to the poor.

I can't believe what I have just watched. I guess that's what happens when your insurance runs out. I'm glad I don't live in the USA.

The assumption that allows such inhumanity is that we have a fair system in the US and that the victims have only themselves to blame.

But would a truly just system result in so many victims that our capacity for mercy is overwhelmed? Surely not.

Kevin,
NHS is heaven compared to what we have in the US today.

Baltimore is definitely a shithole...

“However, there is no good reason for hell holes in developed countries”

Diversity hiring is a good reason... you have to take some technical hits like this in order to achieve longer term social gains...

This is not an isolated incident, it has been going on for decades: Google it. Hospitals and mental health facilities routinely dump patients whose insurance doesn't pay, or those who don't have any at all.

The US ranks 31st in life expectancy and is falling fast. It ranks 35th in infant mortality behind such modern economic and industrial powerhouses as Slovenia and Mexico.

We're No. 35! Woo Hoo!

The NHS works remarkably well considering what it has to deal with - unpredicted population expansion with insufficient money per head.
