Quote: Lynton

Lap dancers are only useful for people in wheelchairs


Is that why most guys ask for a wheelchair after their lap dance?

Skoob, I am beginning to think that you are a troublemaker. Stop dodging the question.

Careful what you say guys! It's known by many that I used to be a lap-dancer but was fired after two nights because - the men said the taps on the bottom of my shoes played havoc with their knees


Lady Godiva:

Evidently the guys aren't biting today. It appears that we have a bunch of pinch mouth prudes who won't touch this topic with a 10 foot pole for fear of offending dancers like you.

I know that most men, because of their concupiscible nature, are attracted to forbidden fruits. Anyone who has stumbled into a strip joint with his buddies knows what I am talking about. That being said, would you automatically classify the hard-working gal who is grinding away on your loins a floozy, not fit to be introduced to your Mom and Dad as your future wife?

For God's sake, Steven Hawking - the smartest man on Earth -says that the NHS has saved his life three times! His wheelchair was part-paid with public taxes!


I would like to go mano y mano with that commie pinko bastard. If you have a chance to talk to him, tell him I would tie six of my Doctorates behind my back, just to make it a fair fight.

It is a fact that the US taxpayer cannot absorb most of the costs of protecting NATO countries, who spend virtually nothing on their own defense, and also provide UHC for its own citizens. Just last week, retiring Sec. of Defense Robert Gates pointed out that NATO cannot survive if America has to carry a disproportionate amount of the load.

Although most Americans are coming to the realization that we can't intercede in nation building for raghead countries who seem destined to live in the middle-ages, we also understand that is where the ideology exists that wants us all dead.

Tough decisions have to be made in the Middle-East. Should NATO be interceding in Libya? The US again is shouldering most of the costs, which amounts to billions of dollars that we have to put on our national credit card because we don't have the money in the bank.

Skoob,

If I get sick or have to seek long term medical care, can I move to the UK and receive care without having to pay anything, no questions asked?

The reason I ask is that we have millions of illegals coming across our border, many who have their babies in our hospitals or who seek emergency treatment, and they don't have to pay one centavo.

I would hope that you in the UK would be humanitarian enough to allow for this since you could expect the same treatment if you happened to penetrate our wide open border and needed medical care.

If we only had to pay for our own citizens, I believe that UHC might work here too.

Regards,

Doctor B

rfreed:

You seem to be accident prone. I suggest that you move closer to a hospital, or even into one, if possible. I certainly wouldn't live 60 miles from nearest hospital, if I were you.

Also, when you had your kidney stones removed by surgery, how did the doctor scrape your lung and cause it to collapse? The guy ought to have his license revoked, or at least wear glasses when he operates. Those organs are usually difficult to mistake. You should have sued the son-of-a-bitch for malpractice.

Even though these are compelling examples of what is wrong with healthcare in rural America, doesn't Alaska give each resident a $2000 pop just for living there? Couldn't this be used to buy health insurance?

You can trust me cause I'm the Doctor.

Sounds as if Dr B is overwhelmed by the complexities and difficulties of reality, and instead chooses to focus on doing his best for his immediate loved ones.


The first part of your statement is not true. The reason I am not overwhelmed by the complexities and difficulties of reality is that I understand my finite limitations and leave God's work to God.

Focusing on loved ones comes naturally to most of us except politicians and diletantes.

"Reality sucks ass."

Erskin,

Sounds like your reality needs to be reframed. Myself, I refuse to dwell on anything that I have no means of changing. I can't stamp out famine in Africa or floods in Montana. I can only try to make myself a better person and take care of myself and family. If I have extra time and energy, I get away by playing golf.

Keep life simple by not playing other people's games.

Regards,

Dr. B

So wait... the world is an ever-deepening Tim Burton-meets-TV sitcoms-style stage, where everything counts, but nothing does, where I may find true happiness in the form of emptiness, where everything is an odourless TV ad, but reeks of desperation and based on the misery and selfishness of others plus golf?

Reality sucks ass.


Inhopeless,

Please don't include golf in your laundry list of depressing world affairs. It is my only escape from this world's evil. I strongly urge you to take up this wonderful sport if you wish to keep your sanity.

Although it is a very difficult sport to achieve some degree of competence, it is well worth the effort. I have been playing since I was 12 years old. It offers at least 4 hours escape from family, job and other responsibilities. It also offers an opportunity to have very special time with your friends and business associates.

On the other hand, if you really want to dwell on negatives and become depressed, I suggest you read Jean Paul Sartre's Being and Nothingness. It took years for me to recover after reading this piece of philosophic crap.

I wish you the very best in your life experiences.

Dr. B

And here's me believing that Dr B holds 12 Doctorates.

Could you maybe use one of them to add tags to your Spoof submissions?

It ain't rocket science.

Just sayin'

Everyone is getting so testy. If someone had told me that getting a Doctorate in rocket science was a prerequisite for this forum, believe me, I would have turned to and gotten one.

Quote: Ellie James

I keep getting sucked into this conversation because of racist comments like "beaner."

I am a bilingual reading specialist. 50% of my school day is spent teaching native Spanish speaking children to be better readers. The other 50% of my day is spent teaching native English speakers who are also dyslexic. I love all of them.

I am also happy to say not ONE of my former students has fallen into gangs. Most likely because they had teachers who have cared and believed in them. I also have a former student who considers himself to be a writer now and is actually writing a book, and he's only 16.

We live in a global society. Is it the child's fault that their parents come here to escape the horrid situation in their home country? No. We have a responsibility to teach them; to help them become viable citizens. Not just of the US, but the world.

If I were in Mexico and got sick....I would want a doctor to help me. Not because I also happen to speak Spanish, but because I'm a HUMAN!


Ellie,

I take issue with you regarding your characterization of the word, "beaner" having derogatory racial overtones. Also, it is not my fault that I picked up this word from my children. After all, the child is the father of the man.

Conversely, I don't call my children "gringos" just because that is what the "beaners" call them. My kids don't want to be insulted either.

Finally, if this message is confusing, it was meant to be because it is very difficult for me to remain on point. You see, I suffer from terminal dyslexia brought about by a comment by Sister Mary Eileen, one of my favorite teachers, who wrote on my report card that, "Dr. Billingsgate will never amount to a hill of beans unless he learns to cheat better." You better believe that my parents didn't take this lightly.

Being a teacher, I hope you understand how devastating the word "beans" can be to a young man going through puberty. Hopefully, as it becomes part of everyday school patois, it will lose its sharp edge.

Keep up the good work.

Dr. B

He's winding you up, IH.

I recall him saying in a post once that he lived off his mother.

Still, at least you got some excellent debating practice and your posts are a delight to read.


Erskin,

I agree with everything you said with the exceptions of those you list above.

Being a highly respected professional; after all, I do possess 12 Doctorates from a highly credited learning center in the Caymans, I hardly wish to be characterized as a provocateur.

Regarding my mother, she is long deceased. This being said, I hope that I have never given anyone reason to believe that anything I have written, either as Spoof articles or in any discussion forum, such as this, was to be taken literally.

Lastly, your encouragement to Inhopeless to do combat with me in the form of debate might prove counterintuititive, as most young men of his age find praise untrustworthy coming from ersatz father figures.

Best regards,

Dr. B

I was just kidding you guys to see your reaction. I actually am for UHC as long as I don't have to pay for abortions, free natal care for the 10,000,000 beaners who come across our border to have their babies in our hospitals at no cost, and then have their little baby beaners automatically become US citizens, thereby qualifying their extended family to receive free medical care, food stamps, subsidized housing and social security benefits.

They can go to any hospital in the land for emergency care because it is against the law here to refuse treatment to anyone in need. This cost is subsequently passed on to those who do have insurance, like myself, because hospitals have to pass on these costs to someone. Then they fill our elementary schools with non-English speaking students who make it impossible for American students to learn anything because the teachers have to spend all their time with the slow learners. For our kids to get a decent education, we have to send them to a private school where we have to pay tuition in addition to the amount levied on us to keep the public schools open.

When the beaners drop out of school and start gang-banging, they eventually are arrested and sent to prison at an annual cost higher than what it takes to go to Harvard. In prison they receive the UHC that I pay for out of my taxes.

It is because we provide defacto UHC, jobs and other benefits to these people that they cross our borders. Now do you understand why it doesn't work here?

Quote: Dr. Billingsgate

How is this for being specific? National Healthcare is B.A.D.

Not because Margaret Thatcher said so, but because it has produced blood sucking vermin like yourself who couldn't compete in the United States if you were spotted a free education and a house in the suburbs.

Stick that up your non-sequitur.

Best regards,

Dr. B


No need for personal attacks man. Blood-sucking vermin?! Let me tell you this. I am many things, Dr. B. But not that. I am hard-working. I am an upstanding citizen, okay? I have been working hard throughout my past exams in order to achieve a good mark, so that I can go to a good university.

When I do go, it will set me back £21,000. That is a lot of money.

I am willing to sacrifice time, money, sleep, so that I can improve my lot.

You still have not given a coherent reason. I have used statistical evidence, ancedotes, witness evidence, experience and the backing of my peers. What have you used? Non-sequiturs, personal attacks, deviation into other topics, and close-mindedness.

I have many right-wing friends, and all have said that I am wrong in my left-wing views, but they respect that, and they leave it there.

So, for the umpteenth bloody fucking time: Explain, and describe, with coherent, backed-up reasons, why the American system is better than UHC? (for 12mks).

P.S. Some of our peers on this site are admirable at my responses. Why? Because you're arguing with a 16 year old. I don't need a free education in America. I'm receiving the best in the country for FREE.


Dear Inhopeless;

I am sorry that I unloaded on you. Because of your malaprops I thought that you were younger than 16.

The reason that your peers admire your responses is that they agree with you, which makes me believe that you and your ilk all practice Manichaean solipsism.

One of the reasons why I believe that our system is better than UHC is that we want less government in our lives; not more, so that we can decide what's best for ourselves and our family, without some fag in Washington telling us that we are expendable because of our age or condition. Evidently, you Brits have been sucking the tit for so long that you can't fend for yourselves.

I sincerely hope that when you start earning your own money and paying taxes you realize the inequity of having to support those who are gaming the system.

The PIGS countries had economies based around the public, tourism, and construction sectors, all fluctuational sectors, and worst affected in a crisis.

Britain is based around manufacturing, financial, service and technological sectors. Less susceptible to damage.

Response: They were all spending more money than they were taking in because of too many promises by government to take care of people who won't take care of themselves. We have the same problem in America. I guess Britain is immune...duhh!

And here is where my top marks in History come in.

In WWI America came late into the war, around 1916-ish. By this time the Allies were on the path to winning-ish. Even with American help, the war would've ended in a draw nonetheless (remember, we didn't actually win really, Germany just got fed up).

In WWII the Canadian and British forces were most instrumental in the D-Day Landings. Hitler himself said that his forces were to retreat when they see the red leaf.

Also, most of the work (and killed servicemen) was in fact done by the British/Commonwealth and French forces - America was just an arms dealer with a few soldiers on the ground. The loss of American troops was much, much less than that of the Europeans/Commonwealth. Hell, you actually made some profit out of it.

The Cold War was much unnoticed by the European countries - it was effectively America and the USSR, with America just installing bases in Europe.

The so-called 'War on Terror', of which Terror is in the lead, was purely an American thing, with Britain just desperately trying to remain a world force by hanging on the coattails.

Response: Are you talking about REAL history or RELATIVE history? Your top marks in History are an illusion. I shall not waste my time rebutting each point I disagree with. You conveniently forgot to mention the Soviet Union's role in defeating Germany on the Eastern front. And why would you include France? Other than the Resistance Forces, they kissed Hitler's ass.

Let me remind you, that most immigrants to the US are of South American decent. It is much cheaper to go to the US than to fly to any European nation. Most other immigrants, e.g. Indians, would rather fly to Europe. especially Britain, because a) is cheaper, and b) Britain has a lot more racial tolerance - all the mostly right-wing bullshit that is oft played is ignored.

RESPONSE: America would love for you take all of our illegal aliens and would be happy to pay their airfare to UK. Thank you! The pleasure is ours.

Also, there are no such thing as 'immigrants' to the US. In effect, most Americans are truly Europeans.

RESPONSE: WTF are you talking about?

Are you trying to insinuate that socialism is bad? Or are you just using it as a synonym for Communist? Because the longest-serving (democratic) Commie party ever - in India, has drastically improved the lot of the people living in the state (West Bengal) they were leading.

RESPONSE: Yes. Yes. And how would you like to be a female fetus in West Bengal?

I don't have a clue how Canada runs its healthcare, but I can tell you, the NHS is without a doubt way, way, better than your way.

RESPONSE: Anything is way, way better if someone else is paying for it.

We spend 8% of GDP on Healthcare.
America spends over 15%!

RESPONSE: You get what you pay for.

We have a longer life expectancy, less smokers, lower infant mortality, and best of all, its pretty much cheap (in terms of taxes paid).

RESPONSE: If I didn't know better, I would move from San Diego to one of your beautiful industrial cities. Do you recommend one?

There is one war the Americans won't lead because they won't accept its existence. The War on Climate Change. And who's leading that? Europe. At least we're reducing our carbon footprint and CO2 output, yet America produces more CO2 than Africa, Europe and Asia (minus China, Japan) combined!

RESPONSE: WTF is wrong with C02? I thought that trees and other green plants needed it for photosynthesis. If we didn't have carbon, how could we build our Stealth Bombers and golf club shafts?

Just because Portugal, Greece, Ireland and Spain are crying for help because their social policies are bankrupting them, it is understandable (because you're socialists) that you don't consider this a trend.

If you smug bastards would pay for your own national defense instead of waiting for Uncle Sam to bail your asses out; as in WWI, WWII, the Cold War, and now the war against Muslim extremism, you wouldn't have the cash to pay for your present national health insurance either.

So don't lecture America about its responsibilities to its citizens. If things are so bad here, why are we so overwhelmed by immigrants wanting to have their babies here in our hospitals, then filling up our schools with non-English speaking students? This, I remind you, is all paid for by tax-payers like myself. Most of us don't like our living standards lowered because of this inflow, but we are forced to pay for it anyway through taxation; money that could be used for our our own medical plan.

And if Canada's plan is so good, why do Canadians come to America when they can't get treated expeditiously in their own country?
