It is hard to miss any media frenzy that focuses on the various young pop tarts, like Justin Bieber. When he first surfaced a neighbor’s pre-teen was showing me a you-tube clip. I asked her if that was a girl, and found the “deep” lyrics which included only “baby-baby… baby” to be mind numbing. As this little boy increased in popularity, for some demented reason he now has a movie about his” life”. Really? This child is 16 years old. commercials for this movie show him flailing at a drum set with no coordination what-so-ever! Still I see this as no surprise, he has formed himself into a marketing “tool”.
Ok fine.. but then this child expressed his disapproval on the US health care system. Really a 16-year-old has acquired a deep understanding of health care, and enough to logically compare US vs Canada. Surely his mommy & daddy are still carting him to and from the doctor when he needs care. So what is worse the idiot who asked him questions, or the fact that this child thinks he has enough information to make a judgement on health care?
Here is what the child expressed on this topic.. prepare your brain may go numb..
Associated Content: Bieber even chimed in on the health care crisis here in the US. As he explained, “Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard’s baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby’s premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home.”
When ever I hear this pre-pubescent boy speak, i immediately imagine Mickey Mouse!
I know some folks from Canada, and it does seem they do only receive the liberal-washed media points about America. Many see Americans as living versions of old wild-west movies. They think we all are highly armed, and pull guns on people to solve every issue. If we are not shooting to kill, we are dying in the streets from our health care system. If only we could get a non-liberal perspective to them, but if we could.. would they listen? Or is Canada too liberal to comprehend?
So will this pop-tarts comment be ignored by the quivering pre-teens (and their mothers who wish they were still pre-teen)? Or will he lose popularity in America? Well again, look at his audience, odds are it will be forgotten, overlooked, or never heard.
