    [quote user="boomzilla"]Especially making it legal for a doctor to murder a patient.[/quote]It's legal for your governments (both state and federal) to murder inmates, although they use a different phrase for that. So the idea that one person can legally kill another person, under specific circumstances, is not at all far-fetched. ...

    [quote user="boomzilla"]I'm not sure of a significant political party in other parts of the world that is even as tepidly pro-freedom as the Republican party (which is only most, but not all of the American Right).[/quote]The freedom as a same-sex couple to get married?

  • Re: Government Shutdown

    Quoting myself... always a bad sign... [quote user="Severity One"]On the other hand, such a deadlock as the USA experiences is practically impossible. Practically, because the Netherlands are facing the issue that the governing parties have a majority in the lower chamber of parliament (roughly comparable to the House), but not in the ...

  • Re: Government Shutdown

    [quote user="El_Heffe"]There are things about other countires that I find equally baffling and absurd. Like "Belgium didn't have a government for months". WTF? You elected people, therefore you have a government. If they leave office for some reason, you replace them. To "not have a government" makes no sense to ...

    [quote user="eViLegion"]hy is your government so weird?[/quote]Because most countries in Europe don't have the extensive checks and balances that the USA have.

    [quote user="Mason Wheeler"]We don't need 40 million less uninsured people in this country; we need about 250 million more.  When something as fundamental as staying healthy is so expensive that the average person can't afford to take care of it out of his own pocket, that is the problem we should be solving.  Insurance ...

  • Re: UK government showing they are modern?

     Makes perfect sense to me. We're talking about pensioners, and we all know how they hold on to things of the past ("the good old days") like Windows 98.
