    These 3 headlines popped up in my newsfeed today....


    Markets advance on healthcare and Mc Donalds

    Heavy Wall St gains in early trading lead by healthcare and Mc Donalds

    Wall st rises on healthcare, Mc Donalds upgrade


    I'm normally the first to dismiss the conspiricy theories that the government or corporations are poisoning or killing the public for some reason... but this seemed a little too much icon_lol.gif

    It really does seem like the USA is poisoning people to reap the financial rewards of treating them

    What flabbergasts me is that the people are complicit in this. The middle and south of this country must be the dumbest bunch of people on earth.

    Wall Street performance is profit-based, either actual or anticipated. The failure of the health reform plan will mean no future curtailment of profits for health insurance companies and pharmaceutical firms. Americans therefore will continue to have the most expensive health care of any major nation, and Wall Street likes that because all that matters to investors is profit, not patients.

    McDonald's is having a great year, as the recession has driven people from more expensive restaurants. But McDonald's itself has also worked to update its menu in recent years, now marginally more healthy than in the past, redesign the look of its eateries, and has made other changes to increase its corporate profitability. The results have delighted shareholders, and the stock has been a consistent star for the last 2 years. Wall Street loves a winner, hoping it will be contagious to other stocks.

    I think I'm gonna outsource my health insurance. Maybe everybody needs to do that or just boycott insurance and then bring a gun to the emergency room to ensure we're treated.
