I've heard stories about China abusing their athletes for the gold

where the needs of country pride out weighs the need of the individual

where failure is shamed and punished

where losers have there homes destroyed

keeping them from their families

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — A Syrian fighter pilot on a training mission flew his MiG-21 warplane to Jordan on Thursday and asked for political asylum, the first defection of an air force pilot with his plane during the 15-month uprising against President Bashar Assad.

Syrian pilot defects to Jordan with plane

I didn't notice any use of air raids conducted by Syria on it's people that's a bombers job.

The fighters Plane job is to dominate the sky. So if their is international attacks.

the GDP (gross domestic product) is the total money the sloshes around in a system.

That system is often tied to a nation such as the US.

The GDP measure the total of the money transactions and has been used as an indicator for the health of the working economy.

I submit that the GDP is biased because trades of stock and money do not create any real economic change of goods and services.

If we are to observe a working economy I suggest the indexed only include money when goods and services are exchanged,

Tax paid health care to all removes the "for profit" component; saving 30%+

SparkyJP (1132) from Westminster, MD 16 minutes ago

Well said Matt !!

If you give health care to all; paid for through taxes; and remove the "for profit" component; you would save 30%+ right out of the gate. Some of the things you do need to spend money on to supply health care to someone is doctors, nurses, hospitals, drugs, medical equipment, clinics, etc. The one thing you don't need is insurance companies. They offer no service except to jack-up the costs and provide a return for their investors at patients expense. Through sheer volume, we could self insure ourselves at a much cheaper price and more efficiently.

Think about it. The only way an insurance company can make money is to collectively overcharge their customers the percentage of profit margin, over and above their expenses. The expenses include the paying of claims, but also include, executive pay and bonuses, employee pay, benefits, taxes (maybe not), Marketing and Administrative Expenses ( you even have to pay for their TV ads), utility costs, maintenance costs, and much, much, more; that are passed directly to the patient on top of already high actual health care costs.

A 2004 economic study published in The New England Journal of Medicine determined that a national single-payer healthcare system would reduce costs by more than $400 billion a year "despite the expansion of comprehensive care to all Americans." I'm sure that figure has increased since then.

I think the cartoon at the bottom of this page says it all -

http://www.healthcare-now.org/whats-single-payer/

What has become the law of the land, is a new tax for the middle class. They now have us by the short hairs. If you think us being #1 in health care costs and #37 in service is bad now ...................................... you ain't seen nothin' yet !!

[-] 1 points by SparkyJP (1646) from Westminster, MD 2 years ago

These videos explains how we can get MORE health care for LESS, if we use a technique called hot-spotting. I think this, coupled with single payer, would give us much better care, for a lot less.

Saving money in HC, is as much about the culture and delivery system; as it is about removing the vampires that extort us. The ACA, that SCOTUS upheld, does nothing to address either. It only holds all of us captive to an expensive and inefficient system.

Pentagon did not support the production of the Avengers movie

one would think with all the Manly Super Hero's and military equipment

this movie would be ideal of recruitment and positive military PR

the official reason stated was

We couldn’t reconcile the unreality of this international organization and our place in it. To whom did S.H.I.E.L.D. answer? Did we work for S.H.I.E.L.D.? We hit that roadblock and decided we couldn’t do anything [with The Avengers].

http://www.reelz.com/movie-news/13837/the-pentagon-does-not-approve-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-or-the-avengers/

I'd wager the military did like the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. was willing to sacrifice civilians with a nuclear bomb to solve an invasion problem.

and they don't want to open a discussion as to

how many civilians are already killed by military bombs
