    I'm fine with that. We outlaw Heroin and shooting people too. Let's outlaw cigs too while we're at it. I mean why stop at alcohol right? At some point, as a society we have to say, if you're going to be irresponsible then the rest of us who are affected must stop you. So, instead of banning motorcycles we say, you have to wear a helmet and instead of banning cars we say you have to weqar a seatbelt... compromise.

    For some people it is impossible. The evidence is the numnber of people who've tried and failed.

    That's your correlation?

    You said you weren't a liberal but here you sre deriding private charity.

    And no one forced these people to buy it.

    Not really, they wouldn't be profiting if people took responsibility.

    Bottom line these people knew what it would do to them, they still chose to do it. That is no one's fault but their own and no one else should be forced to pay for it.
    Do you even have any clue what your country and mine would look like if we just let sick people die? Isn't having cancer enough punishment do we need to say, well you gave yourself cancer and... oh yeah, since you can't afford someone to take care of you, you'll just have to lay in your piss and ****, in an alley somewhere and starve to death, Sorry!

    try rereading that without your pointy hat on, and replace the phrase "drug dealer" with "tobacco company" (since they are essentially the same thing)

    Okay, I looked back five pages on this thread and can find no question addressed to me; what question do you have for me that forces you to avoid my question?

    Yes, if you think it's wrong then explain.

    You're absolutely right, I was talking to Grateful Heart.

    Yes, I do support universal health care, because it will decrease our medical costs and shove a bone up the ass of the insurance companies that have been raping us since... well, since Nixon hoisted HMOs on us.

    Now, do you know what head injuries from not wearing a helmet cost the tax payers before and after the law was enacted?
