    Syringes are not illegal.

    I addressed this already.

    Syringe programs reduce the net cost to everyone else in the same way insurance reduces their payment for your medical procedures.
    As I did here. This is a band aid.

    It's fine to be against the program on moral grounds, but in terms of economic, you're a fool to want to shut down a cost saving program.
    Morally I care less. Junkies can shoot up all day for all I care. When I have to start paying for it, I'm either saying no or going to accept extreme measures to stop it.

    What government funded pub can I stop at to get free beer?

    I don't know about "free" but beer is as regulated as any other food product as far as I know. Some government inspector no doubt inspected the facility where your brew was bottled - assuming it's domestic beer. If it isn't domestic then it was inspected by a different government's food inspectors.

    Indeed. But it's a cheaper band aid then surgery.

    So I take it you are for refusing medical care to the uninsured and letting them die in the streets then? Btw, you are paying right now for the uninsured. You seem not to have a problem with that. So why do you have a problem with this?

    I have no problem in not paying for self inflicted wounds. Dying in the streets would be on the list of options for junkies.

    Yes they are. People get arrested for possessing a syringe every day.

    So you support euthanasia towards social goals... or I'd rather say the death of all concerned people and all those unwittingly affected by them because needles are hard to obtain, because it is congruent with your subjective higher moral standards. Even though distributing needles could save thousands of lives and millions in cost to society. It is better that they die and we make waste and suffering that you and those who think like you can be satisfied at the end of the day that you satisfied whatever little monster of ego resides deep inside you. Just to prevent others from doing something that doesn't affect you and even saves you money. I suppose you'd close down anyone printing materials educating heroin users not to share needles in the first place.


    I could be wrong. But thats what Im feeling here.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because if a leopard somehow wandered into your neighborhood your response would be to stay indoors at night when it's on the prowl? If it killed someone, well, they were stupid for going outside after dusk?
