Don't drink any Kool-Aid.

Don't listen to him. Drink as much as you want.

I'm still wondering why we can't have that here in America. Except that we're dummies. We just sit there and stare longingly at Canada and their beautiful healthcare while we sit down here in 'Murrica and do everything we can to not do that. Are we just STUPID down here? Or are we afraid we'll turn into a country of liberals, atheists, gays, hockey and Tim Hortons if we do what Canada's doing in one respect?
Also, they don't want you to go there for severe things such as strep throat, but you can totally go there if you've twisted your ankle. You also get to pay about five times as much compared to a minute clinic or something.
Also, wtf is a "Snowlax"? That sounds like a rumor that would have been floating around in the days of Red/Blue, but even more ridiculous.
This is just what I've heard from other people, though. I'm personally voting for Romney because I'm afraid I'll get poisoned into a gay atheist if I don't.
I must be lucky with my DMV. The last time I went there to pay for a title transfer I waited like 5 minutes. Same with DEQ, the last two times I took my car through it took 5 minutes at most. It used to be bad though, when I got my license it took ages, and when I took my very first car through DEQ it took like 45 minutes of waiting in line.
Course right now, my local DMV office caught fire and is undergoing repairs, so I hope I don't need to go anytime soon because the next closest one is like 30 minutes away :I
And what's DEQ? Emissions testing or something?
"Ooh! Socialized medicine. Nothing put more fear in us than the thought of that." - Sicko
Seriously, Sicko, directed by Michael Moore, is an amazing documentary that compares the US health care system with other countries with universal health care. I definitely recommend it, although some stories got me teared up. :S
And, speaking of documentaries, I've just seen Revenge of the Electric Car, which is pretty good as well.
If I ever head over to America (and believe me, I want to), I've always had my eyes on the northern part of the Eastern Seaboard. After that though, I'd like to explore much of the South/Midwest. Not the cities so much, just "middle America" and the like.
don't ever come to the Midwest
as someone who's lived on the West Coast, the South, and currently lives in the Midwest (and lived in several different states in the Midwest), and while I can't speak for the East Coast, I can tell you there is absolutely nothing exciting about the Midwest
how could you visit merica and not go to California anyway

Fighting for real American turtles everywhere. Pro-Turtle since 6/30/13
Green Bay, however, is a lot larger than I live now, and it was great. If you lived on the side without the hicks (no offense), there were many things to do. If you wanted to do something, there was a place for it.
lots of places to get drugs too
My point is, the best places in the Midwest are the large cities where the community is vibrant and diverse. I've lived in Kansas City, too, and it's the same thing there. I suppose the same concept could be applied to the rest of the US, too, though.

California is really quite diverse and really a great place to be, for the most part. We eneded up moving to Colorado because we were in a bad neighborhood and carjacked twice, once at gunpoint, so we ended up coming here. Colorado is really pretty and mountainous, but I despise snow, so it's bittersweet.
