It’ll take a little time, Might take a little crime


striped tank  and silk pants with  gold accessories and a hat

What I’m Wearing …feelin’ like a little like a “jailbird”
* Navy and white Full Tilt striped tank
* Goldhawk silk gray pantsseen once here
* Vintage seahorse necklace and gold cuff. Gold hoops & D&G watch, vintage gold clutch & white straw fedora.
* Chloe “belladone” sunglasses
* Boutique 9 nude anklestrap heels

* Hair: waved as I normally do then split it in half/brought to both sides and just braided the ends. Though it does have a bit of a “Cocker Spaniel” look.

* Title: lyrics from Duran Duran “Come Undone” a later one from Duran Duran but one of my favorites.

This could have most definitely been a great 4th of July outfit …especially if I added red shoes and/or a red clutch. But in all actuality, I wore this to the gallery last Friday. It was a preemptive patriotic look. I only wear red, white, and blue because I enjoy dressing up. However, as you well know, I have an awesome Summer cold and considered putting my bikini on as getting dressed for the day. But I did enjoy the sun and pool in our backyard yesterday, which was delightful really. …and now, back to work for all of us. * My sarcasm reflex is kicking hard today.

    I really love the fashion on your blog, I’m so bummed to hear you make political remarks like that, although it is your blog so I suppose it doesn’t matter what I do or don’t want to see.

    I guess it’s just a testament to how wonderful this country really is that you can say things like that & still enjoy all the rights & liberties entitled to you from this country you don’t care much about.

    You also might want to think about how comments like that make those of us who have military families feel…just a thought.

    And I find your honesty refreshing, which is one of the main reasons why I will continue to visit your blog everyday. P.S. My other half & I totally started watching Mad Men because of you…hahaha! All our fave shows ended too and we were depressed for a while…now we’re happy again 🙂 Thank you, Maegan!

    Your blog is always the first one that I read every day. I always look forward to seeing what fabulous outfit or incredibly clever DIY you have put together. It always brings a smile, but unfortunately, today’s post felt more like a slap with the political statements. I am thankful for the freesoms, the priveleges, and the quality of life that I have in America, and I am sorely disappointed by your comments.

    This is absolutely one of those outfits I’d love to recreate. From the hat to the shirt & pants. Casual, hip, comfortable.

    (And gawd, I just fell more in love with you for referencing Duran Duran. They’re my FAVORITE.)

    I’ve been reading your blog from the very beginning but this might be the first time I’ve ever commented (shame on me!).

    I love the look. The pants look so comfy and yet very chic. Not many people can pull off the loose/harem pant and still have a bangin’ figure in them!

    On a side note, I don’t give a hoot that you don’t care much for America. (… Although maybe it’s because I’m Canadian!). While some may think America is an amazing country obviously there are a lot of issues in your country. Those who try and ignore the problems for the sake of patriotism are the ones who are helping the problems persist.

    Keep on doing your thing, Maegan. I’ll never stop reading your blog! 🙂

    I wrote the 9:26 post and I have to say I am very disapointed in you Meagan. I know your father is a Vietnam vet (as is mine). How would you father feel if he knew you wrote things like this about your country in your blog? You are 35 years old yet you sound like a spoiled, rebellious teenager.

    Your father gave up a lot to serve our country. You should never disrespect his memory like this. You will probably delete this comment but whatever. You need to grow up and think about how how your words and actions affect other people. I remember you wrote in your blog that you were upset that someone called someone the “n” word outside a thrift store. Well, you just called our country the “n” word, and it upsets me.

    I’ve always enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your awesome outfits everyday. However, I will no longer be reading it. As a military wife, it’s really disappointing to me to see that you “couldn’t care less” about the country that my husband serves daily to protect. Luckily for you, military families everywhere will continue to serve and sacrifice in order to protect your freedoms whether you care about it or not.

    I love your blog and will continue to read, but I have to say some of your comments make you sound extremely spoiled and bratty!
    This comment is no exception.

    Why stay here if you could care less? As someone who married into a military family, I have seen how much people have sacrifice and continue to sacrifice for you to have your freedoms that you seem to take for granted.

    You should think about the things you say before you post. Some things are better kept to yourself or to people who know you better and accept your bratty behavior.

    I am a new citizen of this country, and i cannot believe how spoiled and insensitive you are.

    If you dont care about America, why dont you move to China, Nigeria, Canada, Mexico or any other country? I’m sure America wont miss you.

    While imperfect, it is still a great country that offers a lot of opportunities that others dont.

    You should stick to what you do best: hair tutorials.

    Like a lot of people who have read this post, I’m seriously disappointed to read your comments. I grew up in Canada, but have American-born parents. Both you and my mother both had dads that were permanently scarred (emotionally and physically) from two different wars. We have all the same problems in Canada as in the
    States. If anyone says that we don’t, they’re lying or blind. At least in America people actually protest if they’re unhappy. People in Canada are so busy being smug and superior to realize what is actually going on.

    You live in a house, have a car, and your husband is buying you two gigantic rocks. Your life could be a hell of a lot worse. You don’t live in an utopia, but you don’t live in hell either.

    I think that a person can love where they live and still see its flaws. I’m Australian- there are certain things that upset me about my country as well as aspects that make me proud. No place is perfect

    Also since Meghan mentions being sarcastic at the end of her post without stating the subject of sarcasm its possible that she is referring to the political statements just being expressed.

    Besides which, I believe that the democracy that soilders fights for involves the right to criticise own’s governement. Not agreeing with a policy is a right rather than an act of disrespect. As I saw in ‘Soundtrack to War’, not all American soilders completely agree with the government anyway.

    This is the first time I’ve commented and its a bit of ramble but its an interesting topic. Just wanted to say that reading personal opinions will keep me coming back instead of never looking at this blog again.

    Many people have died to defend our right to express our opinions even if they are critical of this country. IMO, there is a huge difference between respectfully expressing an opinion and saying that you “couldn’t care less” about your country.

    So, because you do not have free health insurance you dislike your country? All the while, you buy shoes for $1000 and try to look like a movie star, which you are not. Why don’t you take some of the money you spend on designer items and buy your own health care? That is what I do. I live a life that I can afford well. You seem to want to live the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Poor baby, can’t buy a house next to the ocean.
    And by the way, your fashion sense has recently failed you. You can’t just wear any two items together and call it an ensemble.

    Wow…I’ve read the word WAR a lot of times in all these comments, and they all come from the people that defend America. Isn’t that interesting? To love USA you must love war, is that what you people are trying to prove? Well you know what? While you think you live in the best country on the world, us, the europeans feel a little sad about you. All that crap about false freedom and patriotism, and the truth is that you can actually die in a hospital door, you think money is happines, you work like slaves, you kill people all around the world and believe it is for a good reason…and last but not least, you stop reading a fabulous blog just because its author has a different point of view.

    Please accept my apology for offending any of you with my opinion today. I am truly sorry for doing so, that was not my intention.

    And yes, my dad was in Vietnam …and it RUINED him. War is horrendous.

    I applaud any of you or your men who fight for our country but from my point of view, I haven’t seen my country do too much for me. Again, I’m talking about ME, not YOU.

    Though I am truly sorry for offending you. Again, that was not my point.

    I posted at 9:26 and 9:57 and this is my last post, (promise).

    I read this post this morning at work and I just got back from lunch but I can’t stop thinking of your “can’t stand America” comment.

    My dad was in Vietnam when I was in the second grade. The Supremes song “Someday we will be togther” was popular at that time. I remember driving with my mom and my sister when this song came on the radio. My mom had to pull the car over because she was crying so much because she missed my dad and we all used to sing that song together before he left. I have NEVER heard that song since and not thought of my dad in Vietnam. Everytime I hear that song I remember how much I missed him and the fear I had that he might be killed. You always reference songs in your posts so you will appreciate this.

    We were lucky, my dad came home. The happiest day of my life was the day he came home from that tour. Nothing I ever got for Christmas ever made me happier than having him back. We just lost my dad last year and buried him in a vetern’s cemetary, an honor he deserved.

    I feel YOU owe an apology to veterns and their family’s for your insenitive comment. I am older than you and with age comes wisdom, but you are well past the age of knowing “better”.

    And if you never said it to your dad, I will say it: “Thank-you, Mr. Shanahan for your service to our country”.

    Happy 4th of July America. I am proud to live in the greatest country in the world!

    I read your post first thing this morning and agreed with your dig about health care. I suppose I did not give it a second thought because my understanding of your comment was that there’s so much more this country could be doing to support the people who make this country great.

    It’s sad and ironic that so many people in the comments while appreciating and standing up for good ole USA are turning their back on you because of your opinion. Let’s not forget we’re all entitled to our own opinions and divergent opinions are crucial.

    Well, here’s one more military wife (um, not sure why we’re wearing this as a badge but, when in Rome) chiming in: I feel you. Sometimes I think this country is so jacked up I find it kind of hard to really give a damn about it. And I’ve been known to spout off the occasional off colored joke or comment about it. And you know what else? My deployed husband completely supports that kind of behavior.
    Chin up and get well soon. Most of us who understand the concepts of humor and sarcasm still want to read what you have to say and see what new lovelies you have to show us.

    Hey there… This whole ‘America’ thing… I don’t think you meant it to be hurtful… I know what you mean.

    Honestly, I applaud Jerry Brown for what he is doing, and Amazon is ridiculous because imposing state tax on ecommerce is inevitable for ALL states. They’re trying to stop it the wrong way by hurting the people they need the most.

    As far as not caring about America, I know what you mean, ANY act of patriotism makes my stomach turn (no matter what country). We do need to look at issues like health care and education and how we compete with the rest of the world.

    But I do love being American and I love this country for all the reasons they don’t talk about in school, we’re not the freest, the best, the smartest or whatever… i love our friendliness, sense of optimism, and of course rice krispy treats & mac and cheese.

    oh, and btw, both my dad and step dad were in the military. they basically feel the same way.

    and i’ll keep reading your blog.

    I’m curious Maegan what you would like your country to do for you? I’m not asking to be hostile but because that statement more than anything else in these comments has intrigued me. I’m from the perspective that as Caucasian females we are pretty darn lucky to be afforded opportunities in this country others don’t have. But again, it’s opportunity and I feel like maybe you’re referring to something specific? Just trying to understand your position.

    I am disappointed to see some many naive people take your comment as an attack on the soldiers and military of America.

    I agree with you that the fact that America can’t seem to have universal free healthcare is a blow to humanity. Healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and America does not seem to understand that. On that note, I can’t help but feel the same about marriage equality for all. Sometimes I feel like we live in the stone age, holding back simple human rights from others because we are too self absorbed.

    And for those who criticize Meagan for speaking her mind, grow up and get over it. Just because someone has a different opinion than you, and vocalizes it, does not mean they are a spoiled rotten brat.

    I myself can’t stand anything patriotic. While I am thankful that I do live in a country where we have certain liberties, it does not mean our country is perfect, and we shouldn’t ignore these imperfections just to be “patriotic”. America is a long way from being the perfect place to live, and trust me, I have thought many times about relocating to a different country, but have decided against it each time due to financial restrictions.

    P.S. This outfit is fabulous, but I think I am bias because I love anything stripes.

    Anons you are so typical. You should write headlines for FOX news.
    Example… Man, the Lakers need to get a new point guard, they got a lot of problems they stunk this year. UH OH, I guess you must assume I hate the Lakers. Really!?
    Real minds criticize to make it better, followers and small minds make ass-umptioms and accept the status quo.
    That was quite an assumption to make that she HATES America. It’s actually fairly irresponsible to make such an egregious leap.
    Anon were you looking to get upset, it sounds like maybe you were. Take it down a notch. It’s safe to say if some one wanted to jump down your throat for a sentence you said that wasn’t perfect your days would be very long.
    Really who does that? Who takes one sentence and runs with it? Really! Really?
    Last bit here, Don’t ever talk about Maegan’s Father. You have know Idea what you are talking about and what his opinion or thoughts were, how dare you! Don’t talk about your one husband and what he is doing for this country and I won’t talk about the seven members of my family that have fought for this county and would call you a fool.

    I may buy her things but she deserves every bit of it! She works every day of the week, she has two jobs, and is an awesome wife. She works as hard as anybody out there.
    This blog and her other blog related gigs consume AT LEAST 40 hours a week, and she works 20 hours a week and hours of traffic for her other job.

It’s pretty pathetic, if you ask me. I more than appreciate everything our veterans did and our servicemembers do to keep us safe and afford us our freedoms. That said, my country doesn’t do shit for me. I pay taxes out the ass for what? Nothing. We are a nation of fat, whiny complainers. People who can’t STAND when someone’s opinion differs from theirs, and have to throw a hissy fit. It’s juvenile, it’s ignorant, and it’s plain old RIDICULOUS!

    Dear Maegan,

    I also don’t agree with your comment about america/healthcare, but for other reasons such as excessive government control and quality of care, I don’t even want to think about the government controlling this, I digress…

    I don’t understand though how this grants personal attacks or for people that know nothing but the little bit of your life that you choose to share with us and how do they relate this to Soldiers dying in wars or your father.

    I don’t see this being offensive and I don’t think you need to apologize, where do you draw the line from being sensitive to freedom of speech? Even though I don’t share your opinion, I feel this politically correctness is driving me nuts and i really hope you don’t stop being who you are.

    I love the look today,

    What a couple of whiney narcissistic babies you both are, bitching that your country “has never done anything for me”, all while you play childish video games. I guess you cannot expect more from products of the “ME” generation, a generation of children who were told they were special and important just because they existed. I guess you two missed President Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you speech”. You weren’t born yet but didn’t you learn about it in 9th grade U.S. history class?

    Are you mad that you can’t buy the house of your dreams so you have to rent? Boo-hoo!!! Stop taking trips to Vegas, eating take-out every night and renting a house with a pool. Live in a one bedroom apt. and save money. Stop being so entitled. You live better than 95% of the people on the planet. I work with Cubans came here in to escape Castro. The Cuban government seized their factory and all their money. They came here speaking limited English and had to start over. They started their own business and are now millionaires many times over and they did this without bitching that the U.S. government “never did anything for me”. They love this county and appreciate what we have here which is more than I can say for you two spoiled children.

    I find the political debate happening in your comments very interesting. When I read your comment “I could care less about America…” I smiled, because we all have those days where we make flippant remarks about where we live even though we know how lucky we are.

    As a Canadian who has always enjoyed universal health care, I always, always wonder – why are Americans so afraid of it? I would never consider moving to the US for that exact reason. I just don’t get it!

  • Evil Mr. Peppers

    I’m not special and important?

    You know what the difference is pal, is that I have watched the Kennedy speech (several times and understood unlike you) and you have never played a video game. I have done both and you have only done one, typical. I think that is the problem with your generation, stop living in the past. And really stop being a coward and hiding behind your anon or is that another quality of your generation?

    P.S.
    to anyone else I am not trying to offend older generations I have a ton of respect for what came before me, I’m just generaliziing this windbag who is using it as a crutch.

    Maegan you know what? You’re great! I am not American, I am from Spain (i’m not the previous Spanish commenter though) but I think that America is very lucky of having you as a citizen. The world really needs more people like you who freely speak up their minds (and who also have a great sense of fashion… oh how awesome would that be!).

    As an outsider, can anyone explain me why you Americans are so proud of being warriors and being always “on guard” just in case the global safety is threaten, you enjoy the most violent movies etc. but then you cannot see a boob, or any other on TV? Come on! All women have boobs! I guess I’m sick because I would rather see a naked person than the bravest soldier killing “who are supposed to be bad people” for everyone’s sake.

    I also do not understand how such a developed country does not provide free health care. Of course our free/public hospitals are not as fancy as Dr. Houses’ but they are there 24/7 just in case you need them (and belive me, they have EVERYTHING you need), and I guess that we all agree with the fact that anyone likes going to the doctor… Having it for free (which is not actually true because every worker pays Social security) doesn’t mean that you’re going to use is every single day!

    Anyway, as I said before, keep on posting whatever you like, you’re an awesome woman; in fact I think that I look up to you a little!

    Looks like the anonymous posters have the world have united in a moment of hate on your blog. While I do feel lucky to live in America, I think the state of health care in this country is ridiculous (but maybe I’m biased, as my company’s insurance plan fails to cover many of the most basic womens health issues). I could go on, but I don’t know of any government related problems ever being solved in the comments section of a blog, so I’ll leave it at great outfit (stripes+gold+fedora=love) and thanks for not being afraid to share your opinions and your sarcasm :).

    TO Anonymous at 3:51 who said…
    “What a couple of whiney narcissistic babies you both are, “

    yes ANON …I do feel ENTITLED as a human to have free health care …and not because “We can’t afford it” because we can but because I think all HUMANS ARE ENTITLED TO FREE HEALTH CARE and to not get sent home from hospitals because they don’t have insurance or the right kind of insurance or are insured in a different state, when they are in dire need of medical attention.

    What’s funny is, I’m not judging any of YOU for thinking differently than I think …I’m not attacking anyone personally for their beliefs and opinions and I’m certainly not leaving rude anon comments on any of your blogs saying I’m done following and never coming back because of your beliefs …but you all are.

    I don’t think these negative comments are a result of you having a different opinion but rather because you’re coming across as a spoiled child (“this country’s done nothing for me” etc etc).

    There is no such as “free” healthcare. Everything costs money. Socialized medicine means high taxes. You just complained about Amazon charging tax now. Who do you think pays for “free” healthcare? Taxpayers pay for it. Do you want to pay $9.00 for a gallon of gas or $8.00 for a Big Mac? That’s how much Swedes pay for these items. They pay high taxes to pay for their “free” heathcare. You can’t have it both ways.
    You can’t have low taxes and “free” healthcare too.

    My dad was in Vietnam as well. He is still seeing a psychiatrist to deal with his PTSD and would NEVER have gone if it were left up to him. He could care less about “Independence Day” because he knows that he and other’s like him are not free. They are trapped with memories of a time that they can’t forget. People are always so quick to judge, blame and jump on the “you hate America” bandwagon if you have an opinion that is not in keeping with the majority but that is why we have freedom of speech, people. Is that not relevant when it comes to the United States or the healthcare debate? Maegan wasn’t trying to incite anyone, she was being Maegan, the same one that you who read her blog already know.

    Wow Maegan, this is my first time visiting your blog (after loving your instagram photos for a few months), and boy did I decided to pay a visit on a controversial day!

    I found no offense by your comments; I could totally relate! I am grateful for the freedoms we have here in America, but I walk around scared to get sick because I’m 26, college educated, and uninsured . This 4th of July I had a pretty normal relaxed day, and while that’s the day America became free, my ancestors were very much enslaved in this free America. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the work American military servicemen and women do to maintain the freedoms we do have, one of which is freedom of speech!

    Enough of that drama; I LOVE your look!! Those pants are so cute yet laxed, and I’m a bit obsessed with stripes these days. SO CHIC!!

    Get your facts straight please.

    I don’t eat Big Mac’s. I was just using them as a comparsion since Mc Donalds food is pretty universal. Please don’t think all American’s are fat and eat nothing but fast food as most Europeans like to think. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    I think the majority of the people that are getting on you, don’t even know the meaning of most US holidays to begin with. For them the Fourth of July, and other such holidays are simply a day off, a day of relaxation, etc. If people were as educated as they claim, they would know there is some shady shit associated with “Independence Day.”

    And while I don’t agree that universal healthcare is a good thing (for a multitude of reasons), I do agree that Maegan has the right to say whatever she wants as long as she is within the generous boundaries of the U.S. Constitution. It also gives me the right, “Anonymous from Spain,” to tell you to shut your uneducated mouth.

    I agree that all Americans should have universal health care. I think it’s barbaric that we don’t, and I think it’s one of those things that generations from now, future Americans will look back on with dismay that we ever got it so wrong.

    But just because I disagree with one thing–even if it’s a big thing–going on in American politics, that doesn’t make me hate or dislike America. Being an American gives me freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to vote, and a whole hell of a lot of other things. I don’t fight for health care reform because I think America sucks; I fight because I am proud of America’s legacy and I think we can do even better in the future.

    To make some pissy little comment about hating your country because what has it done for you lately makes you sound like a spoiled little kid announcing you hate your mom because she won’t buy you ice cream. And I *agree* with you. Imagine what a moron you must look like to people who don’t.

    Maegan,

    I adore you and your blog.. And admire how open you are about your personal struggles (panic attacks, babies, etc).

    I’m not bothered by your remark for the reason that others seem to be though. I just wonder if you see the hypocrisy in it. A couple sentences prior to that remark you chastise amazon for now taxing residents of California. California, along with the rest of the US is in a recession. Affording universal healthcare is a huge burden for our nation and that money has to come from somewhere (I.e. The taxes you’re complaining about). You could retort with something along the lines of cutting our military spending, but if Obama hasn’t done it I’d wager that ppl involved in foreign affairs have deemed it unsafe to do so at this point.

    Anyhow, ppl are needlessly harsh to you. I respect you and that doesn’t change, but it never hurts to examine your personal beliefs and philosophies. Best wishes.

    It’s unfortunate that you loathe the country that affords you the freedom to have an opinion such as this. I am curious as to why you stick around when you could very easily move to a “better” one? Plus, I’ve seen government housing, I definitely don’t want government healthcare. Scary stuff when the UK hospitals leave patients to die in the hallways or make then wait months for basic care. Besides why should I be forced to buy sub-par care for myself or anyone else?

    Anyhoo, I generally love your blog. I come here as a respite from all the insane stuff I see and read all day. But I’m sad to say that this is one too many times recently I’ve read some pretty offensive statements. I wish you well in your endeavors and hope you learn to appreciate your freedom a bit more.

    I’m just wonder why in the third post above you state “that does not make me hate or dislike America”. YOU stated in the original blog post “I can’t stand America”. Which one is it Meagan? Stop back tracking.

    I think you have been very spoiled and sheltered most of your life. You work in Beverly Hills which is a huge midless bubble. You see people in B.H. driving expensive cars and they seem to have plenty of disposable cash and it makes you angry. Sorry, but anger seem sto be a recurring theme in your recent blog posts. You are mad at traffic, are mad because you can’t have a baby, you are mad at your mom because she didn’t pay for a expensive wedding for you and on and on and on .

    Guess what? We ALL have to deal with traffic, and YES, I live and work in L.A. We ALL have shiat to deal with in our personal lives. We all can’t always get what we want, whenever we want it. I have traveled all over the world and I can say with this: The U.S. is THE best country in the world. We are so lucky to live here and YOU are dumb beyond belief to state “I can’t stand America” when you don’t have a clue as to what you are talking about.

    All I know is that Mexicans risk their lives to cross the border to come here. Cubans float on rafts in shark infested waters to come here and YOU bash the U.S.A.

    You are ungrateful.

    Oh man…I hadn’t read your blog in a while and I just dropped in…this post was a total let down. Fashion + politics = disaster. Yet your apology was that your opinion about healthcare may have offended people. I don’t take issue with your thoughts on healthcare one way or another – but I am so sad about the fact that you said you could care less about your country. In your apology to your readers, you reiterated that in your opinion, the country hasn’t done anything for you. Are you for real? How can you say that with a straight face? Read the world news for 2 minutes, and you’ll realize how callous, entitled and spoiled that remark is. It is a slap in the face of all the people truly suffering around the world. Our country is far from perfect and has plenty of problems, but we are blessed and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. We all know that remarks made online can come across not the way one intends sometimes, but your follow up comments tell me you meant them just the way they were taken, and that is a real shame. I’ll no longer be a reader, but I wish you all the best and most of all, I hope you really do come to appreciate the wonderful country we are lucky to call home.

    I suggest you read a book called “Think” by Lisa Bloom. You will discover how truly awful women in other countries have it.

    I don’t want to “hate” on you. I feel your remark was made out of ignorance. World travel will broaden your horizons and I don’t mean traveling to tourist traps. You need to go to Southeast Asia (I have), India (I have) and other countries to really appreciate what we have here. Even many European countries (not Scandinavia) treat women as second or third class citizens.

    You may think you are “cool” to bash the U.S. Our country is not perfect but compared to about 90% of the world, we are still No.1 at least imo. EVERY SINGLE TIME I travel outside of the US, I want to kiss the ground here when I get back.

    I for one am so thankful for our founding fathers (most of whom had genius level I.Q.’s) for their vision and drive to build the United States brick by brick. We as a nation owe a huge debt to these insightful and highly intelligent men.

    Please, do some reading and traveling. I think you will change your opinion of “I can’t stand America” very quickly.

    Also, the “free” socialized healthcare you desire is not “free”. Citizen’s pay for it with sky high taxes. Also, the healthcare in these countries is marginal. You don’t get to choose your doctor. You wait months to get an appointment, even for life threatening ailments. The doctors and nurses are overworked, understaffed and underpaid. The rich in these countries can afford to opt out and pay for their own high priced doctors. Everybody else is at the mercy of what is thrown at them. If you have a baby in these countries, you see a different doctor every time you go in for a checkup (if you see a dr. at all, you may just see a midwife). You need to do some hard research on these topics before you stand on a soapbaox and profess “I can’t stand America”.

    I’m not shocked by the statement “I can’t stand America” at all from you. I remember a while back you posted a picture of yourself giving the finger “To the LAPD” because an officer wrote you a ticket.

    I can remember how offensive I found that picture to be but I never left a comment on it.

    Gosh..I kind of like cops. They keep us safe. They pull drunks off the road. They catch bad guys. If they catch me speeding once in a while, oh well, I deserved a ticket since, well.. I WAS speeding afterall and speeding is aganist the law.

    Hunnie…we ALL get tickets, but not all of us flip the bird to the LAPD behind their backs. Most of us admit we did wrong, take our lumps, go to traffic school, pay the fine and go on with our lives. Since you are such a pretty girl with long blonde hair, I suspect you have been able to sweet talk your way out of many tickets, but this one officer was not going to have any of it. Maybe this time it was a female officer…who knows?

    You seem to have a major problem with authority and “America” is a huge authority figure to you.

    I’m kind of sad to hear you voice this kind of sentiment towards our county. I used to like coming here for fashion and decorating tips but I’m afraid this will be the last time I visit here.

    Actually, the highest sales tax in Canada is 15%, though 13% is much more common – nowhere near one third. And since you made it clear that health care is paid for by taxes, I’m not refusing to move to the US because I want free shit, I’m more than willing to pay for it. Also, thanks for being just like the others above who only quote extreme/untrue cases about countries that are not your own. Canada’s health care isn’t perfect, but at least it’s there.

  • Cynthia

    July 8, 2011 |

    Yeah, your sales tax is 13 percent. But you’re assuming the sales tax is the only tax on your bill. You must not eat out or rent cars much. Try renting a car sometime and look at the multitude of taxes listed at the bottom of the transaction. When I get a bill for something that’s $8 without tax and $12 after taxes, what percent of my final bill is tax? Or when a $250 car rental becomes $350 after they add in all of their taxes, what percent of my final bill is taxes?

    I used the term “free sh*t” sarcastically. A lot of people think that because they don’t have to cut a check at the hospital, their health care is “free.” This is why so many Americans say they want “free” health care. Of course, it’s not ever “free.” Someone has to pay. Which was kind of my point in the first place.

    And Canada’s health care is “there,” alright, if you have 20 months to sit on a waiting list for it (once more, check out the Supreme Court’s “Chaoulli” decision).

    I’m not sure why Canadians feel the need to misinform Americans about their disaster of a health-care system. I understand you have to think it’s great because you’re stuck with it. But there are people in this country who know the truth from personal experience.

    Maegan,

    While I typically enjoy your frivolous fashion/décor posts and completely realize that this is your platform and you can write whatever you desire, I do have to agree with many of the disheartened replies. I’m just perplexed as to why you would ever say such an ignorant comment regarding America. What has America done for you??? WOW, JFK must be rolling in his grave with the thought of people like you.

    If you feel so passionately about universal health care, perhaps you should move to where you are afforded that right. It’s working out great (read: SARCASM) for countries like Greece, Spain, etc. Entitlements don’t work out, we see that clearly with so many countries these days. America has its hands full with Social Security & Medicare and you think universal health care run by the government is a good idea – YIKES. I repeat, YIKES! While I agree our health care system isn’t perfect and does need to become more affordable, it’s the best in the world. PERIOD! Universal health care isn’t an unalienable right per our constitution so what gives you the idea that America should offer you that?!? Perhaps do some traveling and live in another country, you might change your opinion real quick. I speak from experience.

    Also, it’s quite humorous you complaining about taxes and then wanting universal health care. Hello? As a former Californian, I feel your pain regarding taxes but someone has got to pay for all the entitlements including those illegal aliens who risked their lives to be in this great nation.

    My point is probably mute with you but I really wish you would stick to fashion/décor where you have some insight.

It seems so often it’s the uneducated that speak the loudest. So thank you to all that spoke up and stood up for our country! It gives me some hope!

    Ouch!

    “I can’t stand America”. That hurts. It hurts not only me, but ALL my fellow Americans.

    You are 35 so you have never really lived through a period of economic and political hardship in our country. I’m talking about WWII, The Great Depression, Vietnam, Watergate and the horrible inflation and gas rationing of the ’70’s.

    You grew up with the horrible infulences of narcissistic and self serving celebrities like Madonna and the Gordon Gecko/Wallstreet “Greed is Good” mantra. (Greed is NOT good btw).

    You have only known selfish yuppies and the crass materialism of a consumer culture.

    Yes, we are in an economic downturn now, but it is NOWHERE NEAR what happened in this country between 1930 until the start of WWII.

    What may I ask have YOU ever done for your country? Have you seved in the Peace Corp? Have you served in the Armed Forces? Have you even even had a low paying government “public service” job such as a firefighter, a police officer, a teacher or a social worker?

    What would make you happy Meagan? You are beautiful. You are married to a man you profess to love. You say you are doing what you love with blogging. It seems that you have plenty of money to buy yourself pretty much what ever you want, so where does the “What has America done for me come from”?

    Where do you get the idea that healthcare is “free” in other countries? There is NO “free lunch” Meagan. Their “fee healthcare” is paid for by high, high, high taxes. I find it interesting that you biatch and moan about Amazon’s new taxes yet you stamp your foot like a two year old toddler and deamnd “free healthcare”. Nothing is “free” my dear. As many people have posted here, those countries who have universal healthcare have many, many problems, It is FAR from ideal.

    Please take some time to search your soul about this comment. I think you need to open your eyes, stop being so materialistic and step outside of yourself.

    I like most America’s will invite to to leave here ASAP if that is how you feel.

    Also, I suggest you read the Diary of Anne Frank. Here was a young girl who was forced to live in horrible circumstances, yet looked to the future, eyes wide open with love and hope. Anne said “Even after all this, I still think people are good inside”.

    I really want to think you are good inside Meagan.

    Firstly, no one in there right mind would ever imply that they do not support our troops… That was plainly not written.

    Secondly, “America” can be defined in a multitude of ways. Policies (or in this case, the lack thereof) can be interpreted as “America”… Hence, the hate.

    Most importantly, words are just words… Actions speak louder… If health insurance is what you need… Use this platform and any other method to get this message across!

    Many forget that this country was founded by people detesting their countries policies and laws. Change can only come from the recognition of imperfection.
