hilarious, but scary

in these health hysteria times...
i came across this in the news a couple of days ago:

the us newspaper investor's business daily has declared that the world renowned theoretical physicist stephen hawking, who suffers from ALS, would be dead if he was british and under british health care system.
they kind of missed the fact that he is british - and still very much alive.

indeed initially hilarious but extremely scary deep down for oh, so many reasons.

The same fear monger folks are running around with signs that say "keep the government out of our medicare". Medicare is a government run health care program for senior citizens.
Just a tiny bit of common sense and research people.....

Oh, yes, this is all the rage here in the lovely U.S of A. We're drowning in bullshit over here -- and wondering whether it'll ever end.

That cracks me up...people assume that because his VOICE MACHINE has no accent.

Visty, if by "no accent" you mean an American accent, then yes.
