"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Only In America

Thank God we don't have socialized medicine, right, Ted Cruz?  I mean, socialized medicine would have killed Stephen Hawking, right?

“I wouldn’t be here today if it were not for the NHS,” Hawking told the Guardian at the time. “I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived.”

Yeah, well, he never had a Nobel Prize he had to hock to pay for nursing care, so:  America!  Phuck yeah!
