Canadians have no freedom

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive...52canada1.html

I'd rather be able to watch "Teenage Transexual Nurses 4" then have free healthcare.

...although you apparantly CAN see "G-1 Enema Battle" so I suppose things even out.

Especially if it's administered by teenage transexual nurses.

Re: Canadians have no freedom

The titles of those books and movies are probably the best part. It's comedy gold!

Is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on that list?

Re: Canadians have no freedom

I heard that the rating changed for GTA San Andreas from 'M' to NC-17 due to some nudity somewhere. This is rediculous, sounds almost like a senate or asssembly bill I come across at work here in Dirty Jersey.

There is a pending bill here that prohibits smoking in a moving vehicle. For those fellow NJ residents, it was on News12 today. It's sad to hear things like this.

I know this is the smoking gun's perspective, but I wouldn't put it past politicians in the real world.

*It's a funny site though.

They changed it to an M rating b/c there's a sex scene encoded on the disc. Not b/c of nudity but b/c of porn. Sounds reasonable to me.

As for the topic at hand, I'd like free healthcare, but what I have now is pretty darn cheap and among the best in the nation.

Re: Canadians have no freedom

Sorry CSweeney- I saw the story quick on the news. The game is a whole different topic, and I may have heard it wrong anyway.

And yes, I also have some of the best coverage with my job as a government employee here in NJ, but I do feel for those who are paying premiums and small fortunes for procedures and meds knowing that they are only going to increase along with the number of malpractice lawsuits against doctors and surgeons in this state.

Free healthcare is great, but what is the extent of care? It's a good start for those who do not have access to healthcare.

Re: Canadians have no freedom

1) GTA:SA had it's rating changed because of content on the disc that you needed a mod (unauthorized) to unlock. Doing so violates your EULA with Rockstar (the publisher). So, in essence, they changed the rating because a kid could break the law and see pR0n. In that line of thinking, because people have come up with naked skins for The Sims, that game should be Adults Only as well. Is it time for elections again already? You also have to wonder about something...being able to kill cops, murder homeless people, screw hookers, steal anything that's not nailed down, etc, is absolutely ok. But doing something that violates your EULA that results in being able to see some fake animated porn is bad?

hahahahaha. "She-male Supermodel Alexia" is tasteful, but "No. 47 dog sex" isn't? I'd like to see the list for the US. Better yet, for some middle-eastern country. "The bare wrist?" BANINATED!

3) Canadian health-care isn't really free, they get the shit taxed out of them for it. But the worst part of it is that the government runs it. No thankyou. It always makes me laugh when people in the US get up in arms about demanding a government healthcare system. Are you honestly saying that you want to entrust your health to the US Government? Are you insane?
