    The salient point is that many sane people have made the difficult choice of not having health insurance. And then what?

    *sigh* and the one guy who called all Republicans sons of bitches that need to be taken out is completely innocent. Hypocrisy is silly, just like overblowing things and trying to apply something to everyone within a group. It's sticking to the true spirit of discrimination

    I make $24,000/yr. If I can afford it, virtually anyone can.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Having the chance to make bad choices is a important.
    Having a free ride out of those bad choices is wrong.

    Wow, hard concept.

    Of course it's a solution. Every country on Earth has already come to this conclusion, and they're enjoying a superior system. They're paying much less for a more effective health service.

    What a lot of people don't understand is I don't think Paul was trying to imply that we shouldn't treat the guy, he's a doctor!

    I think what he was getting at is that the man should be treated and then afterwards, he, and he alone should be billed for his medical expenses.

    "But that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars how could you think its fair to stick him with that bill?!?"- Because he made the choice to not buy health insurance. That choice, as do all of our choices in life, have consequences. Obviously your bill would be split up into smaller, probably monthly payments, much like your car or house loan. How is it fair to everyone else to have to provide this guy with free treatment just because he made the personal choice to not buy healthcare?

    Did you not watch the entire clip? I don't care about Hoffa, but the right is in an uproar over him telling a crowd to vote out the republicans.

    I would disagree. Revelation Jesus is just as brutal as Yahwew. Casting sinners into the lake of fire, destorying armies that oppose him. I've always said that the concept of God is nothing more than "might makes right."
