### I am trying not to sound like a jerk, so I wrote "stuff" instead
of "bullshit" but in this case it lead to a misunderstanding. I am not
trying to restart a healthcare discussion, I was just dismissing your
statement, since I know that the Canadian system is a shambles, all
monopolies are evil bullshit and the US system is evil statist
bullshit (and contrary to what you say, it *is* a universal access
public system), and I wrote all that on the list at least 6 times in
the last 10 years. But for some reason, my interlocutors return like a
broken record to the same old ....er, stuff.
