Funny.

You forgot to add something about C&Cs.  Now you're in trouble.  :)

  To keep this boating related, the health care for boats in my area sucks.  Boatyards near me employ street labor, have high employee turnover, low talent, virtually no long term experience and high prices.  The boatyard nearest me, which I decline to use, has a history of dropping boats off stands and Travel-lifts.  

  This year, I will probably start doing bottom jobs myself because I hate to pay big bucks to morons for low quality work.  It's not rocket science.  :(

  Gentlemen, we are circling around a sore subject here..... I am getting the impression that you are telling me that we don't have the best health care in the world??? Even though we pay through the nose for it??? And when you listen to the insurance companies.... and their supporters????  Let's not go there.

    Maybe a modification: 'medical costs in the "developed" world OUTSIDE THE U.S. are not bad either' 


    Things healthcare-related in many nations like Canada and New Zealand don't cost anywhere near what they do in the U.S.  This is part of the impetus for importing prescription drugs from Canada.
