“naming a child after a handgun? really? what a wonderful message and example this sends to all the world. All I can do is just shake my head in utter disbelief. When she reaches adulthood perhaps she can choose and change her name”

“Mr Romney proves almost daily now that he is NOT Presidential material. He speaks before thinking, shooting from the hip. And he appears , and as his ill-fated 'European Tour' proved, he is totally and completely unaware of foreign dealings.”

“Well the people of Missouri will have to decide for themselves who they wish to represent them.
But the bigger picture is that these types of comments appear to be representative of the Republican/'Tea Party members. Rather than attempt to gather ' the many ' the 'Party' continues to divide. Many of the Liberal Democrats do not approve of abortion but they also want to allow women to make up their own mind, to make their own choices. It is important that America allows choices, of many sorts, IF you dont want an abortion - DONT HAVE ONE. Just a clean, safe, medical place to do it NOT an illegal sweat shop”

“I was never forced to say the Pledge (which was rewritten whilst I was in grade school) but we assembled together by class said it, when I reached high school there were so many of us and the grounds were so spread out, that at 0830 when the National Anthemn started on the loud speakers WE all stopped in our tracks in honor ot it. WE were never forced it was just a natural thing. YOU cannot force patriotism on someone, actually you cannot force anyone to do anything - because IF you do if then backlash begins .”

“I have lived in two differant countries due to my job. I lived in GB and experienced NHS - it was new to me but it worked very well, and then returning to America before going to Australia, and experienced Medi-Care then - again new to me, but again it worked very well. I have to say I just do not understand Americans and their attachment to their healthcare system, it just does not work, the employer, the healthcare providers, all tell YOU what and how to be cared for, whereas in GB and Australia, its quite differant. Americans (and I am one) are thick headed nationalists, reminds me of Nazi Germany really.”

“It would be heavenly to live in GB and/or Australia, even to visit them! Not to have to worry about health care, like you said to be in control, would be one of the absolute best things that could happen to our country. Thank you for your post! You are a lucky person.”

“In defense of the US, we are much larger than Great Britain and far more diverse. You have the same diversity, but on a smaller scale. We have the very vocal right wingers, who are terrified of any kind of change or improvement. They don't want facts, they don't deal well with information or research. They like to turn on their radio or tv and have somebody tell them how outraged they should be about something and how it is some kind of evil plot for the government to take over. They still think "the commies are coming to get us!"
You are totally correct about many of us being "thick-headed nationalists"! The fact that every other developed country has a far better health care system only outrages them. The US is the best at everything, those foreigners know nothing, case closed! As you know, our six mega health care mega-corporations make billions of dollars off our current system. The largest is being investigated yet again for Medicare and Medicaid fraud. So they spread the lies and play into people's fears.
Interestingly, when the law is broken down into its parts, the great majority of people like all the parts! President Obama is trying to nudge us into the 21st century, and many of us are kicking and screaming! Look at how they react to "the individual mandate", which will only affect like 2% of the population!”

“Vote for Democrats! And then, write them and nag them for a one-payer system. Can you imagine what it must be like to live in Gr. Britain or Canada or Germany or..........well, anywhere and never have to worry about not being able to see a doctor, or get your teeth taken care of, or if you have to lose your house to pay for heart surgery or cancer.....

Gr. Britain had complaints about the waiting times for some procedures. They worked on the problem, and now the times are much more reasonable. Our new system will be the same way. We will encounter problems that will have to be resolved, but the first step of a journey is the most important.”

“THEN why on earth even comment. Reading great literature is not your 'thing' - why bother.
There are others who enjoy wonderful readings like this and enjoy it coming to life on the big screen. So it really amazes me that you would 1.) read the article 2.) make an inane comment 3.) terribly judgmental”

“hutch1601:
As a Fitz fan, I find it hard to be objective, too, about "Gatsby." There is one interesting factor, however, that often separates those who love the book from those who don't: age. The ideal first experience with the novel, it seems, occurs around 16. Any younger than that, and it's easy for a reader to miss its broader/
deeper themes; much older than that and the love story can seem unrealistic,
even trivial. I wonder how old "vidtrainer110" was when he/she first read "Gatsby"?
