Of course Mr. Crowder is going to film his video to fit his political agenda! Duh! He is a contributor for Faux News! The video purports to show him going to a clinic on Sunday and being offended that it was not open. Then to the ER where he shows up with a non-emergency injury and then being "triaged" as non-emergency, meaning he will wait. What does he expect? Everybody gets everything they want the minute they want it? How much in taxes would we pay for that? I would like to see his story on those babies denied coverage here in America, one for being "too fat" and one for being "too underweight." Really? Denying coverage to a BABY???? (Until media coverage intervened.) And what about Americans being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions? Or if an American develops cancer, has multiple medical treatments and cannot work, gets fired, and then has absolutely no coverage? Isn't THAT a death panel?

That is our present day America. But you won't hear THAT on Faux News. Because Faux News does not report news. It gets people riled up. And you fall for it, hook, line, sinker, every time.

"Crowder espouses conservative political views and addresses topical issues through his frequent postings on YouTube, at Pajamas Media's PJTV, and at Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood blog (see below). Crowder's videos address current events with humor and comic exaggeration. His works have, on various occasions, ridiculed celebrity political opinion,[2] satirized gun control,[3] and voiced opposition to illegal immigration.[4] In many videos he is partnered with AlfonZo Rachel.

Crowder accused the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of anti-Christian bigotry, stating that "the fact that this [country] was founded as the first true Christian nation is what makes it the best place on earth for Jews, atheists, and Muslims alike. ... The ACLU isn't anti-religious, it's anti-Christian."[5]

Crowder was featured on Hannity's America and discussed his displeasure with the Canadian health care system.[6] In a video titled "ObamaCare,"[7] Crowder used a hidden camera to investigate Canadian health clinics, which he criticized for being inefficient and expensive."

The Ugly Truth about Canada's Health Care System

Postby Auburn Terry on Fri Jun 11, 2010 11:20 pm

David Gratzer
I was once a believer in socialized medicine. I don’t want to overstate my case: growing up in Canada, I didn’t spend much time contemplating the nuances of health economics. I wanted to get into medical school—my mind brimmed with statistics on MCAT scores and admissions rates, not health spending. But as a Canadian, I had soaked up three things from my environment: a love of ice hockey; an ability to convert Celsius into Fahrenheit in my head; and the belief that government-run health care was truly compassionate. What I knew about American health care was unappealing: high expenses and lots of uninsured people. When HillaryCare shook Washington, I remember thinking that the Clintonistas were right.

My health-care prejudices crumbled not in the classroom but on the way to one. On a subzero Winnipeg morning in 1997, I cut across the hospital emergency room to shave a few minutes off my frigid commute. Swinging open the door, I stepped into a nightmare: the ER overflowed with elderly people on stretchers, waiting for admission. Some, it turned out, had waited five days. The air stank with sweat and urine. Right then, I began to reconsider everything that I thought I knew about Canadian health care. I soon discovered that the problems went well beyond overcrowded ERs. Patients had to wait for practically any diagnostic test or procedure, such as the man with persistent pain from a hernia operation whom we referred to a pain clinic—with a three-year wait list; or the woman needing a sleep study to diagnose what seemed like sleep apnea, who faced a two-year delay; or the woman with breast cancer who needed to wait four months for radiation therapy, when the standard of care was four weeks.

"Touring Canada's Health Care System"....

.. where every single person in the entire country, all 32 million of them, has health insurance,

.. where no one is ever forced to "do without",

.. where no one has to pay a "bill" to a doctor or hospital *ever*,

.. where no one is ever turned down or denied coverage because of a "pre-existing condition",

and

.. where ABSOLUTELY NOBODY, EVER loses their home or all of their assets or files for bankruptcy because of medical bills?

..where people fly to the US for actual surgery

..where spending hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours sitting in clinics is commonplace.

..where MDs don't have to pay $30-150 thousand a year for medical malpractice insurance.

..where the financial cost of the program is about to either bring the government down OR force yet more tax hikes.

PPS - you attempt to make the Canadian system appear to be some kind of panacia and the epitome of perfection. Videos like these help to put it all in a reality based setting. You should remember there are at least TWO sides to every story.

The reason people like FOX news so much is because they TELL it ALL and let the viewers decide for themselves. Your way of being told what to think and believe is certainly the easier way to go through life but it is NOT really living.

.. where no one has to pay a "bill" to a doctor or hospital *ever*, WHERE EVERYBODY PAYS NOT ONLY FOR POOR SERVICE, BUT FOR A BUNCH OF BUREAUCRATS TO OVERSEE AND INSURE POOR SERVICE

.. where no one is ever turned down or denied coverage because of a "pre-existing condition",

BUT CAN'T AFFORD TO KEEP THEM BECAUSE OF TAXES......
AND THEN YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHY THE AUTHOR OF THIS POST WHO CLAIMS TO BE CANADIAN WOULD CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE USA?

Horsesh!t and LIES.

My "starving artiste" sister-in-law in Vancouver, B.C. makes a grand total of about $600-$800/month in income. She has 100% medical coverage through the Canadian and BC provincial governments. She pays NOTHING AT ALL for that medical coverage, because her low income (verified through her and her boyfriend's tax returns) entitles them to receive the coverage for free.

That's how IT SHOULD BE.

Yes, standard pillows can be used at night during CPAP therapy, but pillows specifically designed for CPAP users have an edge on standard pillows. For those that wear a nighttime CPAP mask and tubing in order to provide constant airway pressure, these CPAP pillows offer a cutout area to avoid any potential problems such as tubing getting caught or coming loose. They also provide support for your neck and head so your mask won't come loose during the night. Some, such as the Contour CPAPmax Pillow, are hourglass shaped while the Core CPAP Mini Pillow is triangular. You can visit https://healthyhowardmd.org/cpap-pillows/ to select the proper CPAP pillow that would benefit you.

For sure. What an adventurer are you if you haven't used them. Though I had quite an extreme experience. For some reason, my body quite sensible to the substance and my heart almost stopped. Then my doctor prescribed me a soft viagra. Works great for me. You can find the information here www.pharmaciegenerique
