Nailed it.

I know that feeling.

An observation on the effectiveness of private ambulances:

In my country (New Zealand), we have a charity called St John's which provides ambulance services for approximately 90% of our population, among other things. Calling one of their ambulances is absolutely free, for emergency and non-emergency callouts.

They do a fantastic job, and you can view their website here: http://www.stjohn.org.nz/ , or view a wikipedia article about them here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_John_New_Zealand .

About 80% of their funding comes from contracts with various local and parliamentary bodies, and the other 20% from individual donations and corporate sponsorship. In 2012, their 2,481 paid staff were supplemented by *8,591* volunteers.

Because they are an entirely private organisation, they don't have 'theoretically endless' amounts of government money available to them, and they are quick to find innovative or just plain necessary changes to reduce costs or increase efficiency. Because they are not government controlled they are able to make such changes without struggling through stifling bureaucracy. I remember one example of this occurred last year. St Johns was struggling under the weight of callouts they were receiving, so instituted a new policy stating they would not respond to some minor injuries they had before, such as broken arms without complications. Such injuries can be just as easily served by driving down to the local medical centre. Their policy change was quick, rational, and effective. And the best part of it all was that the whiny lefties couldn't complain about it at all, because of St John's charity status!

St Johns is much cheaper to run, and for the government to contract, than any nationalised ambulance service would be. It is an extraordinary testimony to the efficiency of private business, and to the power of volunteers and donors in a (mostly) moral society.

If only we were able to put similar systems in place for other public services! The Fire Department would be a good place to start; it's already staffed by large numbers of volunteer firemen.

Cool. Doesn't work that way in the US.

Haha, this is your average 'liberal' these days.

Believes in a command economy, disarming the population, states killing their own citizens and state violence against and suppression of political dissidents.

The latest move in the game of Climate Change is coming from liberal attorneys general trying to shut down anyone arguing against it. Those AG's are issuing subpoenas for truck loads of documents reaching back decades in a fishing expedition into the relationships between oil and coal companies and anti-climate change groups.[1]

Of course oil companies are not taking this lying down. They are already fighting back, one tactic is that the US Virgin Islands Attorney General needs to mind his out territory. There is also some talk of counter suits to cover their expenses and legal fees.[2]

What I cannot figure out is why these righteous crusaders of justice didn't unleash the investigation to end all investigations when the climate change scientists got caught screwing around with the numbers.

So, what do you think? Is this a legitimate function of these offices? Or is this just an attempt to get reelected by hassling the mortal enemies of their voting base?

New poll is up.
