Yeah, but Vince will set up some sort of screwjob to take that title away from him and give it to Triple H

29 minutes?  that's not that much...

Wrestling is fake. You know that right?

In Britain "29m" means 29 stone. One stone weighs 1,000,000 pounds

So the unanswered question is:  Why would a government run and funded National Health Service need private individuals to raise money for it?

R. Truth is looking for this guy to take his 24/7, 365, international, galactic, 100 year belt back and be the Champion again.

Because the Conservative party spent the past 20 years trying to defund the NHS saying it was a waste of money and that could be spent reducing taxes on billionaires and multimillionaires like themselves.

How do you raise 29 meters?
 
2020-04-28 12:28:29 PM  
OK, so what's his entrance music?
 
2020-04-28 12:29:18 PM

The money is being raised for NHS Charities not for front line services. The charities provide things like support grants for staff or patients, non-essential services like transport or supplying toiletries for patients etc.

The last time NHS spending was cut was under James Callaghan, a Labour prime minister.

Oh, it's the fault of people you don't like.

How unexpected.

The NHS is the nearest thing to a national religion in the UK.

I've had 3 different occasions where I did some consultancy work where I was working for companies working for the NHS and as an organisation it is a giant pile of shiat. The doctors and nurses are excellent people. But the management side is farking appalling.

Give money to a charity funding clinical trials. It will do far more good.

"Support grants for staff", like salaries?  Transport of medical patients isn't an essential service?  Things like soap aren't essential?

What kind of third-world healthcare system do you have there?

I mean, I spent a few days in the hospital 2 or 3 years ago.  My insurance paid all but $50 of that.

This lie is so often repeated by the left that it has become a little piece of "conventional wisdom" everyone just knows.

I hope the replies on this thread have caused you to rethink that somewhat.

Nah, it will be a "Boneyard" match vs the Undertaker. I am putting $20 on Moore to finally retire him.

It's nothing like a religion. It actually helps lives.
