Today I observed something astonishing: 2 male Canada Geese caring for an injured male goose. One stood guard about 50 yards away; the other walked in tandem with the injured goose as the latter fed on insects along the irrigation ditch. His right leg was injured; he was doing the “silly walk”. The goose that walked next to him positioned himself between me and the injured bird, visually shielding him. The 2 “guards” were not feeding.
It made me think: From an evolutionary standpoint it must be worthwhile for two high-value individuals (two healthy males) to care for an injured party. Granted, the resources must be available. Why can Conservatives not comprehend this?! Are they dumber than Geese? I don’t know how else to explain it. We have the resources – we just need to apply them in a more efficient and effective manner. #UniversalHealthCare #SmartHealthCare #CoordinatedHealthCare
