Java Iraq, Money, Religion, Ethics… Gay Roedy’s Health

Mouse Trap Metaphor

The Ortho® Home Defense MAX® Kill & Contain® Mouse Trap is a beautiful metaphor for American attitudes to the children of Afghanistan and Iraq killed by the American occupation. The advantage of the trap is it does not let you see the dead mouse or learn the mechanism by which the mouse was killed. Deliberate ignorance somehow assuages the conscience.

Health Care Is Never Free

Both sides in the health care debate in the USA dissemble. Supporters of public health care like to make it sound as if the care is free since users don’t pay per visit. Opposers of public health care like to make it sound as if only private care is free, since it is not on the government books. What counts is the bottom of the line cost to the consumer, coverage for pre-existing conditions and coverage for expensive treatments. How they pay is secondary compared with how much they pay.
