Over on the thread, A Reply To Consi on national health care, Les is responding to the following quote:
If you don’t have the talent or the willingness to move to where there is a job that provides health care, well then, that is a bed of one’s own making.
Consi is answering but…
In posting this up, the subject line seems to suggest a desire for a conversation between us. I’m more than willing to engage in that conversation, but that is often times difficult to do here. The reason being that there are multiple posts of varying value between the replies. If you do want a conversation to take place, I’m asking you to so state. If you so state, I’d like to ask your other members to show the courtesy and restraint necessary to allow the conversation to take place by not flooding the thread.
OK, fine. We’ve been here before: Consi wants silence in the theater while he dazzles the audience with his intellectual legerdemain. (in the previous case, there was some justification as the subject was very technical) So THIS thread is a peanut gallery where the rest of us can carry on with our simian chattering “of varying value” on the subject.
