      Well, yes.  Root canals will (hopefully) result in some good; our parasitic govt. will just drain us for life.

      Lice and cockroaches can be gotten rid of, not so the crooked politicians running the country into the ground. 

      Brussel sprouts, though...I'm not so sure about brussel sprouts.  lol
