Stupid statement of the day

... the week, the year... from the comment section of a review of the latest Michael Moore bag of jokes, comes this stunning tribute to the brain-stem-only way of life:

America has fantastic healthcare resources, and some of the best hospitals in the world. The problem is access to those resources. In order to answer your question, you’ll first have to answer this one: why doesn’t everyone in the US go to the Mayo clinic?

Why don't 300 million people all go to one clinic... I am done, people. I admit it: I have finally found the stupid statement that can't be answered, because first I'd have to have my frontal lobe removed in order to think at the level required.

You know, I was actually trying to wrap my mind around such stupidity. I was actually trying to answer it: because the line would be really long, because most people would have to travel a across the country to get there, because there is excellent health care in lots of other places, etc.

But then I realized the futility of it...like ramming your head against a brick wall...

Anyway, the promise of socialism is not that everyone can go to the Mayo clinic. It is that nobody else can either. It´s like: "I cannot promise a Yugo for all of you - but I can promise that nobody will have a Mercedes". And even that is a lie. The fat cats are always with us. Not least in countries like Cuba.
