To which I say, have a little more ambition:
Or a bigger sense of humor:
Mark Degasperis was furious his mother spent five days on a stretcher at Toronto Western Hospital waiting for a room with 25 patients ahead of her [...]Now that's a great health care system!
"I'm angry we pay such high taxes and the more money we throw at the health care system the worse it gets. People shouldn't be lined up on stretchers in the emergency department. If you are sick you should get a room."
We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.Which begs the question, "What is going to happen?" Will Barack take away my car, take control of my thermostat, and institute food rationing nationwide? Hmm? And how, pray tell, is that leadership? It sounds more like totalitarianism to me.
That's not leadership. That's not going to happen.
Various forms of nitrogen contribute to greenhouse warming, smog, haze, acid rain dead zones with little or no life along the coasts, and depletion of the ozone layer in the stratosphere, the researchers concluded.Why don't we all just pack it in now and make everybody happy
Planned Parenthood, a major abortion provider, is soliciting Mother's Day gifts for itself.Do they not see the contradiction in such a plea? I understand both sides of the abortion issue, and feel like I could make a convincing argument for either. But I the pro-abortion side always seems to end up in an intellectually indefensible corner, from defending partial birth procedures, to arguing against ultrasound procedures that might change a "choice" to an "educated choice." This is the same sort of myopia.
In a May 3 e-mail blast, Planned Parenthood Federation of America's president, Cecile Richards, asked recipients to "Make a Mother's Day Gift" by donating to the organization - a solicitation that some critics say is ironic given that many Planned Parenthood clinics perform abortions.
I notice most of the houses in your 2008 Record Houses issue make some claim to sustainability. I think this does a disservice to the profession, ruins our credibility, and strains the public’s credulity. Single-family homes are inherently unsustainable and even antisustainable. Sustainable single-family housing is an oxymoron, like hybrid SUVs. Even Dwell has begun to admit they probably aren’t an optimum approach. When will McGraw-Hill catch on?There you have the definition of a self-absorbed nanny state environmentalist. If you have the gall to live in (or, one presumes, even design) a single family dwelling, you are committing the unpardonable sin of "antisustainability." I am sure there are a myriad of other unsustainable activities this ass would be happy to lecture us about as well.
