What it Really Looks Like...

Some people seem to think that, while government can't efficiently run our postal service or departments of licensing, they can somehow provide us with "universal" health care coverage that is better than the private sector can provide. I think these people are delusion ... they probably think films like Sicko are actual documentaries, as opposed to the leftist commie propaganda they truly are.

The Cuban dissident, Dr. Ferrer, who took this footage risked his life and is currently in jail not far from Gitmo, but in slightly different conditions. Gitmo would be a resort for this poor man.

"The Castroite propaganda in Sicko so outraged people cursed by fate to live in Castro's fiefdom that they risked their lives by using hidden cameras to film conditions in genuine Cuban hospitals, hoping they could alert the world to Moore's swinishness as a propaganda operative for a Stalinist regime.

At enormous risk, two hours of shocking, often revolting, footage was obtained with tiny hidden cameras and smuggled out of Cuba to Cuban-exile George Utset, who runs the superb and revelatory website The Real Cuba. The man who assumed most of the risk during the filming and smuggling was Cuban dissident -- a medical doctor himself – Dr. Darsi Ferrer, who was also willing to talk on camera, narrating much of the video's revelations. Dr Ferrer worked in these genuinely Cuban hospitals daily, witnessing the truth. More importantly, he wasn't cowed from revealing this truth to America and the world. (A recent samizdat reports that the black Dr. Ferrer is currently languishing in a Cuban prison cell --not far from Gitmo, by the way-- undergoing frequent beatings."

The system in Cuba's communist utopia is a nightmare for the regular people. Yet, our 'betters' want to model a U.S. system based on the supposedly "fair" system in places like Cuba, Canada, and the UK.

Is this the future for America under Obama Care?

There are MUCH worse photos of actual conditions in Cuba at The Real Cuba website.

Even in the U.K., an obviously much freer and not evil society, conditions in the socialist run health care system approach nightmare stage (patients having to have family members clean their rooms, bring them water, and even a man dying from dehydration in the hospital!).

Our system is far from perfect, but it is Utopia in comparison to Cuba. "Free" is never truly free. There are always costs and consequences.

I'm SO glad another jewelry / artsy fartsy person is on my wavelength. :) Too many of "us" are sooooo uber lefty it's ridiculous. Art does NOT have to equal liberal. *sigh* Although then again, the word liberal (in my mind) has been stolen and redefined because I'm actually a very liberal person in the traditional sense of the word. I guess that's a post for another day. lol

Come on... Seriously? This is a bit ridiculous. Saying universal health care can't work in the States because it doesn't work in Cuba is like saying human rights won't work in the States because it doesn't work in China.

If we look at the worst examples of any issue it won't seem appealing. Let's have some perspective here...

The point is that liberals (i.e. Moore) use Cuba as an example of what WE SHOULD be doing. I'm not the one trying to point out Cuba as an example for us to emulate.

So no, I don't think it's ridiculous at all. Universal health care is not attainable at all, anywhere. For the government to try to force it simply means that rights are taken away from doctors who provide their services (Cuba has slave doctors). And forces us to buy a product even if we don't want it.

I think the left are the ones who need to get some perspective.

MM is such a douche. I'm scared of what this country is going to turn out before O is finally out in 2012.
