HindiDiscoMonster: Serious question... is there any reason why the US government can't require workplace regulations to be met in order for a company to sell their product here in the USA?
Bob Down: I suppose it's better than living under a box in a rat-infested subway or under a bridge.
Sword and Shield: Zeno-25:But, we have THE BEST healthcare system in the world if you're quite wealthy.It's true. I'm a physician, and the amount of waste in the system is insane. Despite the "miracle" of electronic records, most systems don't talk to each other. If you get labs at one hospital and go to another two days later, you stand a good chance of getting them all again, even labs that make no sense to repeat.
Evil Twin Skippy: HindiDiscoMonster: Serious question... is there any reason why the US government can't require workplace regulations to be met in order for a company to sell their product here in the USA?Answer: Because most parts of the world that buy the things we make have a stricter standard than we do. If we tried to enforce that law, Europe would use that as a justification for slapping a tarrif on our airplanes, cars, and implements of destruction.In Europe what passes for "health care" in the United States is considered an anachronism on par with the workhouses of Dickens or the flogging of sailors in "Mutiny on the Bounty." The crippling debt we crush students leaving college under is as distasteful as the Feudal system of the middle ages.
ChubbyTiger: At its best, our medical/hospital system is significantly better than any other country's. On average for all citizens, not so much. Similarly, our university system is generally great, but we've got some issues there, too.
Slaxl: Obviously he's exaggerating, I assume for effect, but you don't have the best health care system in the world, and no, god knows we don't here either.
bulldg4life: I'm impressed that you are here beating the drum on Saturday mornings too.
alowishus: Here's a tip.This map is satirical.
gothelder: The apple devices should come with a tour of the plant where they were manufactured. Sort along the same vein where the townspeople living near the concentration camps during World War II were "encouraged" to visit them in order to reveal to them what was going on in their back yard.Full functionality on the apple devices would not be achieved until a quiz was taken and passed on the documentary.
