and floss your teeth, ie practice good dental hygiene. Unfotunately, unless you have really strong teeth there will come a time when your teeth will fail you. This is where a dental plan would be helpful. I just wish I had one. I used to have one. When I worked at PG. Now it's all out of my own pocket. A crown runs $1000. It would be difficult for me to come up with that kind of money. But it shouldn't be. Not for me or anyone else. Dental care should be part of health care because they are inter-related. What a stupid system we have and what a bunch of stupid people there are thinking that if there’s affordable health care for anyone we suddenly become socialist. To be honest, I know very little about socialism but I ‘m willing to bet that there’s a lot more on the list of requirements than universal health care. But hey, you just wait a sec and I’ll go wikepedia it :) ...
...I think that took me a minute, maybe less. Anyway, here you have it: Socialism refers to various theories of economic organization advocating public or direct worker ownership and administration of the means of production and allocation of resources, and a society characterized by equal access to resources for all individuals with an egalitarian method of compensation.
Obviously, we have a lot more changes to make before we become a socialist country. I am not necessarily suggesting we adopt such precepts but I do believe in equal access to health care. It’s just civilized.
And I want to know what an egalitarian method of compensation is.
