Photo journal: America's uninsured

BCC News online photo journal of American's that lack health insurance.

Stories like this really upset me. My degree is in Economics so I'm ignorant of the benefits of free market captialism. I'm also aware that sometimes the free market fails to allocate resources in the most productive way. I cannot agree with a system that does not provide universal healthcare. To force people to work just to stay healthy is immoral.

Luckily in Australia we have medicare. While sometime it doesn't work it helps provide all Australians wiht health care no matter what their socioeconomic status is. Glad to hear that you are back on track and have eaten.

I really am feeling better. I had two nice helpings of my chili last night. That really hit the spot. Combined with the beer festival this weekend,....

Beer? Australia is the home of beer guzling. Well at least if you take Germany out of the picture. Me myself, not a beer fan. They say beer is an aquired taste. Personally speaking it is a taste I'd rather not aquire. I find most beer has an equivalent of fizzy, urine in a bottle. Not that I've ever or would ever consider tasting fizzy piss in a bottle.
