Health Care for Minnesota Families

As I was walking to Jimmi Johns in the Skyway today, my path was slightly delayed by a hoard of people wearing purple shirts which read "Healthcare for Minnesota Families." They were chanting various slogans (I did not see any free Mumia signs) and putting a damper on everyones day.

Then I thought.... why would they be protesting -there is plenty of healthcare in Minnesota for Minnesota families if they are citizens and willing to at least try and pay for it. Then it struck me. What the shirts really said was "FREE healthcare for Minnesota Families."

Now I get it.

I have a perfect solution to this problem. Buy these people a one way plane ticket to Europe, where they can get all the free healthcare they want, plus a load of other benefits that liberals want. Birds of a feather, doncha know.

Even at first class rates, we're bound to see a tremedous return on our investment in just a few short years.

Great idea. There is a home for freeloaders.

Why can't we have our own place, a place where everyone pays their own way for everything and only the most necessary laws exist to protect one from force and fraud? There is no place left in this world for the libertarian.

Where is the next frontier?

How about Greenland? We could revolt against docile Denmark and exercise strict border control. With fortuitous global warming, it will be temperate and fertile.

Yes, I know the Free State Project resides in New Hampshire, but unless they secede from the Union, they're going to have a tough go at being truly free and independent.

Holy Moly. One thing you have to give male homosexuals is that they had the good sense to congregate somewhere nice - San Francisco. (Female homosexuals it seems are not as bright, or perhaps not as wealthy, since they seem to have chosen Minneapolis).

I vote San Diego. It could be a little country of its own between the U.S. and Mexico.

There is a much simpler solution. Simply have the legislature pass a law stating that all doctors, hospitals, and drug companies must provide their goods and services at no charge to everyone? Anything else is just a half measure version of that, so why not? :-^

San Diego is too hot. On the other hand, you could run a booming light bulb industry there as California has proposed a ban on the incandescent light bulb. And as S'aurus suggested off-blog, energy will be in great demand as California is essentially banning the production thereof. I'm just hoping CA falls into the ocean sooner rather than later, so I'm back to either Greenland or NH.

Actualy Scrib. San Diego isn't hot, not like here, unless you get considerably inland. On the coast where I lived it was rather chilly most days, Winter and Summer. As for California, don't hope it falls in the water. Let it go back to Mexico where it belongs, they deserve each other. Greenland will work nicely if the global warming cranks are right. It was a lovely place a thousand years ago when it was named and global temps were about 5*F higher than today. They even grew grapes there, and that can lead to nice things.

Ah, yes, the highly sought-after Greenland vintage. It would give the Greenish Cup a whole new meaning.

I can see it now. Aught nine was a very good vintage for Greenland wines.

It'll take a few years for the vineyard to mature. Ah, now, that's the life for me, a vinemaster. Vinemistress? In Greenland.
