The Power of Prayer and Socialised medicin

I have a simple solution to the problem of the lack of medical coverage in the USA.

I suggest that it should be provided free for all US residents that are not protected by God. Obviously, those protected by the Lord only require a short prayer to be healed, so medical coverage for them is a waste of money.

This will reduce the number of people needing cover and the cost by about 75%.

well, as kris kristofferson

well, as kris kristofferson said in pat garrett and billy the kid, "i heard god's fast.  i'd have to go up in front of him myself before i'd bet on him."

(to which james coburn snidely replies, "you will..." )

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
