Surprised This Hasn't Been a Talking Point

While there are some who would blame the Vancouver riots, in part, on a "nanny state", I am surprised that I haven't seen any right-wing pundits in the U.S. specifically blame the riots on the Canadian healthcare system. After all, what is more of a disincentive for mayhem in the streets than the prospect of huge medical bills? Damn, I pulled this out of my ass at quarter after four in the morning while working- if I had no conscience, I could become a right-wing shill and get some of that Koch trickle down. Silly old conscience!

This is the result of socialism, people!

(Of course, when there are riots in this country, they are also the result of socialism.)
