A word from the [not so angry] Left

From the Newsbusters e-mail tipline, which goes to many contributors, not just me:

As a canadan [sic] watching with interest, You citzens [sic] for first time have a great visonarist [sic] in Ombam [sic]. In Canada we pay higher taxes but the pay off is worth it with free health care. I have been very ill and I am more than every [sic] been looked after with no added expence to my family. They do not treat you like a credit card but like the patent [sic] you are. I belive [sic] health care should be available for everyone on this planet, without the worry of bankrupting your family or haveing [sic] insurance companys [sic] with no medical experance [sic] tell you what should be done to help you.

OK, I have just a few questions. One, who the hell is Ombam? And two, why the hell would someone want to be treated like a patent??

Seriously, though, I always get a kick out of those who think things like Canadian healthcare is "free." Nothing is free, folks. (At least this spelling impaired Canuck admits that they pay higher taxes for their healthcare, but at the same time can't distinguish between that and the concept of "free!") Sorry, but I've heard enough about the "care" one gets north of the border and I, for one, will pass on it.

Lastly, we Americans for the first time have a great visionary in Obama? I'll be nice and just say that not only is that one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever heard, but it belittles America's true great visionary presidents.
