A Masterstroke of Weakness

If diplomatic pusillanimity was the aim, Pres. Barack Obama’s decision to abandon our current missile-defense plans in Eastern Europe must be regarded as a masterstroke.

If there were awards for self-defeating weakness, this move would deserve a Neville for Appeasement in a Perpetually Threatened Region. – More @ NRO

An absolute indictment of  our system here in Canada that tolerates long wait times for specialist visits, diagnostic testing, and elective surgery. Not a great selling point to the Americans. Spread the mediocrity equally.

“Canadians don’t mind waiting for elective care all that much, so long as the rich Canadian and the poor Canadian have to wait about the same amount of time.” In that one sentence, Marcus Davies laid out the ethical basis of Canada’s health-care system. The question facing Americans this fall is: what should be the ethical basis of America’s health-care system? – Newsweek
