You're right. Who needs engineers? Let's have drivers and trailer park residents design bridges! "Hey, Jethro, I think a couple of 2x4's and some plywood will do the jobs. Ain't no need for reinforced concrete & structural steel."
I'm sure the traffic study done by those against was very well thought out and thorough. Oh that's right, they didn't have one did they? Emotions and "feeling from the gut" makes much more sense than historical data, engineering principals and best practices.
It's great to see that Walla Walla holds the engineering expertise and judgement of a trailer park to be better than the engineering expertise and judgement of engineers.
So post the numbers you want to use.
6.1 million divided by 313.9 million = 1.9% That's total population. If we look at over 18 only......6.1 million divided by 239.5 = 2.6%.
All Canadians? According to a Fraser Institute report in 2011 46,000 Canadians left the country for medical treatment. Canada's population is 30 million. So that is 0.15% of the population. Also are you saying there is no capitalism in Canada and Europe?
I think if judges, attorneys & cops just have guns, they don't have anything to worry about, right?
Churchill also said this, "The discoveries of healing science must be the inheritance of all. That is clear. Disease must be attacked, whether it occurs in the poorest or the richest man or woman simply on the ground that it is the enemy; and it must be attacked just in the same way as the fire brigade will give its full assistance to the humblest cottage as readily as to the most important mansion. Our policy is to create a national health service in order to ensure that everybody in the country, irrespective of means, age, sex, or occupation, shall have equal opportunities to benefit from the best and most up-to-date medical and allied services available."
He was talking about the National Health Care system in the U.K. which is single payer government system.
What a thread we have going here. It's fun to take a look at the comments. I especially namvet60. At one point he writes, "Catch a clue instead of just trying to degrade somebody." That is a valid point. He then goes on to call some "missy", questions the citizenship of an MD and fellow veteran, and brands everyone who disagrees with him as leeches. Way to keep it classy my friend, way to keep it classy.
What's your definition of unanimous? Iraq War resolution: Senate vote: 77 Yes & 23 No. The no's were 21 Democrats, one Republican and one Independent. House vote: 296 to 133. The no's were six Republicans and 126 Democratic and one Independent.
