Well folks, just thought I should check-in after a long sojourn helping bring freedom to Iraq one no-bid contract at a time, and happened to catch yet another news article about big government maleficence while jetting back from the Freedom Riviera.
From the AP:
Nearly 40,000 people learned this week that a trip to the doctor may have made them sick. In a type of scandal more often associated with Third World countries, a Las Vegas clinic was found to be reusing syringes and vials of medication for nearly four years. The shoddy practices may have led to an outbreak of the potentially fatal hepatitis C virus and exposed patients to HIV, too.
Sounds scary, but I don't see what the big deal is. Sure, lots of people got really sick, but I've been assured repeatedly by my libertarian friends in Iraq that these people will be dealt with when word gets out and people stop visiting the clinic. That's right, the free markets will take care of everything, assuming we let them. But knowing Washington bureaucrats, who just don't know when to leave well enough alone, they're likely to try to shut this clinic down rather than letting nature take its course. Damn tax & spenders!
Liberal Fantasy Worlds
And the whole article is dripping with socialism, starting with that reference to so-called "Third World countries." Third World countries?! What the hell does that mean? Look, I've traveled all over this fine globe, from our most glorious nation, to the terrorist-infested success in Iraq, to many excellent resort communities throughout Muslim-threatened Old Europe, and I've never seen one of these "Third World countries" once. Not once! What are the odds of that?
Even the name doesn't make sense. We only have one world. ONE! Yet just listen to what they're saying "Third World countries." World countries?? How can a country have a whole separate world in it, let alone a "third" world? Impossible. Countries are smaller than worlds. I know, I checked.
And that can mean only one thing: They don't exist. How could they? These mystical places where government bureaucrats don't meddle around with their senseless regulations and licensing, but which still have problems. Trust me, if such a place existed, I'd be there quicker than you can say Bureaucratocracy; soaking in the good life and basking in my ever-loving freedom. How could such a place have problems when government IS the problem? It couldn't.
No, as everyone knows, the only countries that exist are America, Canada, Mexico, and Old Europe. Two of those are socialist hotbeds, and the third is a liberal trap designed to solve our labor problem while simultaneously stealing our jobs and creating more crime in our country. And why do libs want more crime? Why else: So Big Government can "solve" it by taxing us to death. Typical.
Left Ain't Right
But the main point is clear: America is the most liberty preserving country on the entire planet, which is exactly why socialists have banded together to destroy us with their redtape, high taxes, and atheism. Why, when your typical socialist lib reads a story like this Vegas clinic, I bet the first thing they think is to want even more government interference. More government! Up is down with these people, and after surveying all the damage they've done, their only "solution" is to add more gasoline to the fire.
So it's obvious what the real problem here is: Government regulations and licensing created a Hep C epidemic in Sin City, and now needs the free market to step in and bail it out...yet again! This is just so typical. When will these fatcat bureaucrats finally realize that they just need to leave well enough alone and everything will be alright? We never had clinics spreading Hep C all over the place before governments started interfering in our lives and we won't have them long after I've drowned the government in the tub in my Lear Jet.
Now it's back to Iraq to show Iraqi's the wonders of freedom, and to see to see if Blackwater's got my new plasma screen installed. Instilling democracy in a frightened people is its own reward, but I gots to have my March Madness, baby!
