so my question is do you reject the pretty much universally accepted notion that private businesses are more efficient than government bureaucracies...


Seriously.  You're a f-ing moron.




really how so is this enlightened post meant to say that his statement its not universally accepted or that its not true?

You're a moron because you display no critical reading skills whatsoever.

1.  The clear implication from what she wrote is that she rejects such a notion.
2.  She has posted NUMEROUS times her reasons for rejecting such a notion, including
      A. arguments showing effective government bureaucracies, and
      B. arguments showing ineffective business models, particularly
           i. the health care system, which compares not only poorly to other government bureaucracies like the Post Office, but even to the minimal government healthcare assistance already in place (Medicare or Medicaid)



If you want to take her on regarding the merits of that argument, you can certainly do that (as Freak is attempting).  If you want to just state, simply and categorically, without even a shred of evidence, that everyone just knows business is more effective than government, then you're a f-ing moron.



first of all my critical reading skills are just fine lets test yours. the fact that their are effective government bureaucracies (which i will accept for this response)does not at all refute the fact that private industry is more efficient than any government bureaucracies...the fact that there are inefficient private industries does not at all refute the fact that private industry is more efficient than government bureaucracies... if anything it acknowledges the fact that bureaucracies are by nature inefficient but some are more efficient than others.

secondly you post bolded and the question my critical reading skills. let's test your critical reading skills American Heritage Dictionary: bu·reauc·ra·cy An administrative system in which the need or inclination to follow rigid or complex procedures impedes effective action: Today, the term bureaucracy suggests a lack of initiative, excessive adherence to rules and routine, red tape, inefficiency, or, even more serious, an impersonal force dominating the lives of individuals.   secondly i don't need to post a shred of evidence to state that private business is more effective than the government anymore than i need to state a shred of evidence that water is wet for it to be so.....there are still some people who reject that the world is flat doesn't mean it is

lastly this particular subject has been going on forever, it has gone around and come back again no one here freak or miss p, is making any arguments that someone else hasn't already made if you have the time to go back through and find them more power to you, i do not...miss p is free to reject the universally accepted premise of business and economic theory that government bureaucracies are inherently inefficient i won't call her a moron because of it....can't say the same for you

since ya'll want to continue to beat the horse skeleton i have a question for ms. p...it seems clear to me, i and i guess at this point me and freak are the only ones who it is clear to, that freak is arguing from an economic and business stand point....i know you feel that this is just ideology not backed by concrete examples but i'm curious to know if you've taken any business management or economics classes beyond the intro level...the reason i'm asking is because as i see it freak is basically using his/her practical examples to illustrate basic principles of business. he/she is pointing out the differences between the way government operates and the way businesses operates....and saying that any successful "universal" health plan will be subject to and governed by these basic principles....those principles do not go away simply because its morally right to provide everyone with affordable healthcare.....you always have examples of how your figures support your position and im not agreeing or refuting them here, but i have yet to see address the business 101 aspect other than to call it so much sloganeering.....so my question is do you reject the pretty much universally accepted notion that private businesses are more efficient than government bureaucracies....or do you think that the universal healthcare system you propose or support (not tryna turn you into hillary) simply will not be subject to these principles....not trying to start an argument just trying to understand where your foundation is planted....not to bring A into it but i think he pretty much argues from the business stanpiong as well...and if he doesn't he will be correcting me shortly...i know you're a dedicated public servant but just wondering if you have any experience in the business arena...going back over the posts it seems like this is where the disconnect lies

I think she should get best new artist.  Lol they should give song of the year to soulja boy tell'em (lol sorry, I get a kick out of saying his whole name)

boy please...the grammys would lose the little bit of credibility that they have if they even thought to nominate him in that category!  it's bad enough that he's nominated for best rap song (and i say this as someone who has busted out with the crank dat at a party!)


well the grammys never really get the rap category right....but i wouldn't be surprised if they gave it to whino....the grammys dont usually get into the whole public image thing....they gave a grammy to 3 6 mafia afterall....but i wouldn't be surprised if she didn't win either.....i think she had one of the best albums of the year....did you see the article where they're talking about moving the eligibilty dates....because some of the best albumns this year (alicia keys american gangster etc.) didn't come out until the eligibility date is over....jay z is still getting nominated for tell me what you got...
