This healthcare thingy would help these poor piss-soaked grandparents to afford new glasses, diapers(....) and whatnot.
Same thing goes for the four month old kid. The parents of these kids could easily pay for some vaccines (oh I said the bad V-word that sadly a lot of americans still don't like) etc.
You pay this healtcare tax to help these people and they are doing the same thing for you.
Not a bad concept IMO.

Well the issue is there drug addicts are not being taxed, and honesty if your OD'ing on coke, that's your issue not mine. If you go to the hospital you should either be having your wages garnished 

 

And while it does help those who need it, there is still the issue of getting them to the health care. If johnny's high on coke, who else is around to get Grandma and little Suizy to the hospital 

 

Still there are those that need help and that get the help, just wish the States had a better regulation of said help. A perfect example is the "home less sheleters" we have here in my own home town. They are privately owned and those who live in them are "homeless" the requirement for this free housing is

 

1) they work, your wages are garnished and you work to maintain the property

2) your room is inspected and laws are set in palce

 

They are well taken care of their and each member is held responsible. You break the rules, and yea you get to rot in the streets. The rules are not hard, you do what you can, Take care of the house your living in for free and you get to stay 

 

and I'm talking about the children of these drug addicts, the parents are too strung out to get vaccienes, and it's these drug addicts who are creating such a large strain on our the health care [at least where I live] that we need the government to step in and tax us. So the issue goes back to these addicts, they won't care for them selvs, their parents or their off spring

 

what the need is rehabilitation, and Tom Yum I will say this... I've seen some documentaries about Prisons over there... and I like what I saw. You saw clean cells, gardens and prisoners doing hard labor to maintain what appeared to be a very lovely and well kept prison facility, yea it was still all stone with crappy beds. I would be more inclined to support this tax, if our country actually offered a half decent rehabilitation program like what you appear to have over there, the issue is we are talking care of these people, or rather enabling them to countinue to fester in their addicitions, there are a few programs stepping up to actually help these people... but they usually shut down due to lack of well funding :/

What? Crossover fighting game with Index, Railgun, Oreimo, Shakugan no Shana, SAO ??

You didn't knew about it? I posted it a few times here, including maybe even today or whenever they announced Kirino/Misaka.
Personally, waiting for Kino and especially Dokuro-chan.

I knew it sounded familiar.

Dayum, Seo Kouji you bastard.

 

Not sure how Kimi no Iru Machi the uber Trolololol manga is going to end or if it is going to.

 

The manga has extensively covered their lives from early high school to post College grad and their entire experiences during that time since. ....how much longer?

3 mins into Log Horizon and not impressed. Generic as hell intro sequence with the most bad metal/rap combo shounen combo.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

E7 AO just got more interesting, the appearnce of Truth, and his establishment as Naru's "savior" is neat. Still crappy compared to Orignal E7, but meh for now it's keeping my interest

LH is gaining more favor now, as I expected, its comedic action anime. It won't be hard to compete with SAO thus.

What are you suggesting then? Freeze this whole healthcare topic just because of the addicts you have in your country? That would only be a smart move if like 20% of all americans are hopelessly addicted to drugs and I really can#t imagine that it is that worse there.
It sounds like you are exaggerating the whole drug topic a bit....I know that 'Murica is in fact not the land of hope and glory where milk and honey flows through the rivers, but it can't be that bad.

And regarding the prisons....I heard the exact opposite of what you are describing there.
I heard it from a ex-prison warder.
He quit his job there because he could not handle how the prisoners were treated etc
I could tell you some really ugly stories he told me :/
There sure are a lot of these "nice" prisons in the US, sure. But these addicts won't get the chance to decide in which prison they are going through the whole rehab process.
I would wish no one to be put into a prison like the one the dude I know worked in. Not even the worst drug addict.

If the US government wants to save some money, they should not start cutting budget of things that help the people who are "producing" the money in the end.
How about cutting the stupidly high military budget for example? (another one of these no-no-topics)
The communists won't imediately invade the US if it would spend a billion less on tanks etc :P

Ah political discussions.

Discussions with no correct answer and no good solution to the given problem, yet both parties still tend to be convinced they are correct.

So true, but its still nice to debate it as a way to gain more wordly knowledge....if the other end also uses debate for the same purpose

 


LH, ED song is much much better, soft and well sung.

 

The series is quite interesting for now, similar to SAO in many ways, but also not as it has a focus on just adveture and comedy for now.

Do you even care about political questions as a nihilist?

xD that's so funny, in America are prisions are just a crappy was what you descibre, Just gatta love how the media paints things, I guess prisons are hell holes every where

 

and I do agree, to much money spent on Military... but this is AMERICA. We are the WORLDS... Bully I guess? Either way, I have no suggestions, just like to see how your views differ from mine, turns out what I heard about European Prisons was well a little skewed, good to know that. That and I BELIVE I CAN FLY, no jk. Personally I'd like to live a land with a neutral government. Is Canada Neutral? I think they are... that and I'm sick of all this damn heat in the south

pff I never said I was correct lol, I like discussion about politics just to see how others differ, There is no correct answers and there are no good solutions. So long as humans are in the mix, no political system will work, they will all have flaws. The best American Presidents where either removed from office. Some one behind the scenes pulls strings here and every where. But it's still nice to see what others think, 

 

That and I'm not... even a pollitcal person. I don't vote, I won't go to war and I don't care who is president. Just like explore the opinions of different ppl and cultures to learn more about well the world around me. An honestly, it's not THAT bad here in the States... well it is in the South. Get out into the deep country where the "good ole boy" system and there's some real corruption. The sons of former slave owners still control the wealth and the government down here

 I don't even care about finding the answers to pollitical questions, as 6,000 years of history have shown us that humans always bring corruption into any politcal system And computers are not the answer either, I suppose the answer to all political greifs are just do your best to help those around you, as they say sharing is caring, but that should be a two way street, help those who are willing to help others

I can't say that I don't care about them. I naturally feel involved with them somehow.
But I try to distance myself from political discussions as much as possible due to their useless nature. Or rather not distance, but I actively ignore them. Same for ethical discussions.

Though the way you bring it, it seems like my nihilism would be the cause of my disinterest. But actually I've been uninterested in it for my entire life.

First 2 minutes of White Album are pretty positive

 

They have a tiny Clannad orby eyeball effect which is quite nice :)

 

Cute characters too

 

There is clipping from the piano after 1:45s -_- either the subbers didn't notice it or it was in the show itself from production or TV airing it

 

Most anime have the audio well beneath the noise floor. I need to turn the volume knob higher than where I listen to music at for most anime. For WA2  by Horrible Subs, the audio was where the ordinary 96dB 16bit noise floor was so I'm guessing Horrible Subs raised the audio to be 'louder' without realizing that they clipped one of the audio sections
