health care, lets bring up sweden. guns, lets NOT bring up the swiss.

oh you libs are so predictable.

its not always about being able to stop your govt because you have your guns. its like Al Golre and his analogy of the frog in his climate change/no global warming/no climate change movie.

Little by little the heat is turned up on the frog but it's comfortable and he doesn't notice and he is now being served at the Shrimp Boat in Lancaster SC.

but i also love those emails. funny

The Swiss are an outlier when it comes to gun ownership. The US is the outlier when it comes to healthcare

The entire Republican ideology can be summed up in one word: hyperbole

In other words, they use extreme exaggeration and unrealistic comparisons to scare their small minded followers.

Topic:Gay marriage might become legal

Republican translation: What's next, we allow people to marry horses and dogs??

Topic: Assault weapons ban

Republican translation: THEY WILL COME DOOR TO DOOR AND TAKE YOUR PISTOLS. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HITLER DID AND THE GOVERNMENT IS PREPARING FOR A TAKEOVER. CLING TO YOUR WEAPONS AND BIBLES BECAUSE OBAMA IS COMING FOR US ALL!!!!!!!

Topic: Obama wins the presidency

Republican translation: This is the beginning of the end of our country. Buy farmland and stock up on gold and other precious metals. It won't be much longer before the country falls apart completely and all will be chaotic. (Glen Beck actually said something along these lines)

Is that where it came from?

I should send him a fruit basket! I had 30 acres in Clarksville VA I couldn't move for poo & then my agent told me she was getting multiple bids like crazy. Got near double what I was expecting.

politicians would never ever go for low lying fruit or easy votes or tell people what they want to hear to get/remain in office. never.

where are you getting that? sure seems like london is just fine with it

i always enjoy it when these kind of people bring up switzerland.

most males age 20-30 are militia members and are issued a firearm because switzerland has no standing army. all but 2000 people who are either military police or spec-ops types are disallowed from storing ammunition for the weapons in their homes. before that, something like 50 rounds was delivered in a sealed box that was routinely audited for unauthorized use. if that seal was broken, your ass was in trouble. that hardly matters now seeing as to how the government recalled (read: seized) all the ammunition issued to militia members in 2007.

this notion that it's some kind of safeguard against home invasions and gives the citizens the means to fight back against its government is bullshit. their laws dictating private purchases of guns are also draconian compared to what US citizens are used to.

the argument that "lol it works for the swiss" is misleading if not outright incorrect. that is the problem. the notion that switzerland is full of loud and proud gun toters is nonsense.

also the healthcare:gun control analogy you're trying to set up is puzzling to me. the united states is an outlier when it comes to (relatively) lax gun control laws but is also an outlier when it comes to not having some flavor of universal healthcare whereas sweden is hardly special in the first world when it comes to the latter.

yes i know the outlier card is played the way it is.

im goofing on tinderbox wisdom of its own confirmation bias. truth is you have a hard time comparing the states to anyone else for health care or guns to get fair comparison. you can to a degree, just not straight up apples and oranges.

usually, sweden is mentioned for health care and that's one of the worst countries to compare to. germany or japan would be better for sheer size and age and diverse population.

same with the us and the swiss on guns. england and maybe germany and japan again would be a bit more fair.
