    And I seem to remember someone having said that NYC was going to be Just Fine a while back.

    Retail Chains Abandon Manhattan: ‘It’s Unsustainable’ - The New York Times
    Given the mass looting event in downtown Chicago recently, retail seems on the ropes there as well. Gotta wonder how much longer those with clout in Shitcago are going to put up with Lightfoot and Pritzker. The powerful state assembly speaker Madigan is embroiled in a Federal grand jury, so it appears the Big Blue Machine there is on the ropes at the moment.

    They most certainly did.

    And monarchies don't tend to want to micromanage people's lives. And they respect property rights unless you really piss the wrong people off. And they have no incentive to impose virtue virus lockdowns on us.

    Let's roll the dice on monarchy or at least a temporary dictatorship.

    You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, and no personal experience with this at all. I do, but again, a socialist parasite cannot command my time.

    I am not advocating that anyone pay more. I am advocating that everyone pay less. Please, look at the figures on what people pay for healthcare per capita in various countries. In every case, state-run HC systems are more efficient. This is entirely uncontroversial everywhere but the U.S..
    Again, theory/socialist talking points. You don't actually know anything about this.

    Out of curiosity, let me ask you (Rip, Satch, Arryson, and Hurling are also welcome to furnish me with an answer to this question): if you had to persuade the UK electoral body to give up on the NHS in favor of a U.S.-style private health insurance bureacracy (and the exorbitant doctor salaries endemic thereto), how exactly would you do it? Can you name even one quantitative statistic that supports this position?
    They cannot be persuaded, and it is not our job to do so. We're not happy with the current system here, so why would we want to talk the fucking Brits into doing it the way we fucked it up here in 1966?
