My Christmas Thought: Why Do We Engage in Such Stupid Debates?

Should people with cancer who lost their jobs no longer have access to doctors and treatments?

Should people who lose their jobs be able to keep their homes?

Should really, really rich people get huge tax breaks?

It's really a debate.

Should same sex couples be able to visit one another in the hospital?

I don't know.

Should we pay much, much more for pharmaceuticals than people in Canada?

Is global warming caused by people, and if so or if not, should we do anything about it?

I just don't know.

So, over Christmas, when your parents' friends talk about the failure of "Obamacare", just wonder why we are the only developed country that engages in these debates. It's just us!

But, wait, should we execute gays? I don't know. Let's debate!
