All that's missing is Tinkerbell

The NYT, in yet another hard hitting editorial, points out the difference between the real world and the world according to Bush.
The man who has the nerve to call himself a uniter has done more to divide this country than a legion of terrorists could hope to acheive.
In Mr. Bush’s world, there are only two kinds of Americans: those who are against terrorism, and those who somehow are all right with it. Some Americans want to win in Iraq and some don’t. There are Americans who support the troops and Americans who don’t support the troops. And at the root of it all is the hideously damaging fantasy that there is a gulf between Americans who love their country and those who question his leadership.
In the world according to Bush, Rummy is doing a heckva job, the occupation of Iraq is going just great, we're winning the war on terrorism because hey, we're taken out the Number 3 man in al Qaeda at least a dozen times now and the Iraqis love us for liberating them from a stable life under tyrannical rule in favor of daily fear and unmitigated chaos. In Bush's fantasy life, flat wages, rising costs, millions of hungry and uninsured Americans, a runaway deficit and horrendous trade imbalances are a mere aside in his booming economy. And in Bush's world of divine revelations, spying on innocent Americans, destroying Habeas Corpus and thus the Bill of Rights, condoning torture and decimating the environment are good things. God told him so. Oh and by the way, New Orleans will rise again -- Halliburton told him that.

The Times wonders, "whether this president will ever be willing or able to make room for bipartisanship, compromise and statesmanship in the two years he has left in office." Hell, I wonder if he'll ever be willing to make room for reality in his fantasical, unitary executive excuse for a brain. I'm thinking it's about time we changed the name of the White House to Neverland.

In the past 30 years, the costs of healthcare have soared in the United States. Due to rapidly escalating healthcare costs, Americans in ever increasing numbers have begun to search for alternatives that could reduce their personal out-of-pocket medical expenses. In the last few years, hundreds of thousands of Americans have chosen to become Medical Tourists.

Cost of medical and surgical procedures in Mexico is very low compared to what is paid in the United States. In most cases, the savings from their medical treatment can give people extra money for vacation. Indeed, a patient and his/her family can take a luxury vacation in a Mexican resort and pay for the trip with the savings they receive on getting their procedures in Mexico. Medical Tourism in the city of Guadalajara can certainly be a win-win proposition. While taking care of health needs at big discounts, shopping sprees, sight-seeing, cultural pursuits, and trips to nearby beaches and spas can all be arranged around a medical appointment schedule.
