It's 6:30 AM and I'm only up because I woke up needing to take a leak and have a snack. At this point my brain is capable of understanding that there are implications of this, but not what they are; nor can I articulate anything much more complicated than ME LIKE OREOS, so I think I'll leave that part for a later time.

This is a great idea: let's pay people not to commit crimes!
That's fine. Where do I sign up? I'll gladly take money from the government not to commit crimes. I mean, hell, I wasn't planning to commit any crimes in the first place, but if they're going to pay people not to commit crimes why can't I get some of that action?

Coming soon to a country near you! China's medical system is, naturally, socialist, and it spends about 80% of its budget on 8.5 million government workers. That's 8.5 million people out of 1,390 million people.
80% of its healthcare budget is spent on 0.6% of its population. Isn't it marvelous how well China cares for its people? It's a shining example of how fair and egalitarian and nice marxism is!

ME LIKE OREOS...I think I'd better go back to bed.
