Who's got the foolish concept?

After writing his editorial ("Evolution is fantasy, not an actual theory") I wonder if Raphael Sealey knuckle dragged himself out of his cave long enough to hear about the Boston tragedy? Some of those "fittest to survive" didn't. Did he and "my friend, God" get a good laugh out of that one, too? God, what a foolish concept!

If one were to challenge every leftist distortion in the CC Times, that person would have no time to either eat or sleep. However, when malodorous organic fertilizer soils it pages one must reach for the pen, or rather the mouse. Clearly, Russia, North Korea and China are all on planet Earth.

As to Mr. Linden's "facts"

1 -- More than 40 million people die each year in the US for lack of health care. Google fact: Approximately 2.5 million die each year of ALL causes.

2 -- We are on top of the world's list for per-capita health care costs and near the bottom for quality of care. Try any "free" care in any of the above mentioned or African countries. As for costs, plumbers, lawyers and shoeshine boys in the US are also among the most expensive in the world.

3 --The U.S. has the world's most unbridled health care costs and CEO salaries in the world. Ditto for lawyers, plumbers etc.

4 --Millions of people in the US still go into bankruptcy and loose their homes each year because of health care related costs. If it were possible to determine which straw broke the camel's back, this assertion would likely be no more accurate than in No. 1 above. It is safe to say, however, that people who bought Aetna before Acura are still in their homes.
