    Well, what does CVS' bad dealings have to do with them doing something completely and totally legal?

    I thought the essential basis of communism was communal ownership of the means of production, not social compassion and responsiblity.

    Thank you for enlightening me to this discrepancy.

    So why isn't everybody railing at how cancer treatments are so costly? And why don't we have universal health care already?

    It's not that pharmacy's fault that we live in a capitalistic society. And, as a matter of fact, I support universal health care, or at least a public option.

    But I'm also realistic to know that that's not how our country operates, so I adapt to how our country does operate and work with the system we have until it's enacted the system I want.

    Fair enough. I just do not believe that a human being should be left to suffer and/or die over a matter of one dollar. I find the whole thought of it to be offensive.

    Patriot was condemning the woman in this incident for being irreponsible by not bringing her medicine, so Glinda was pointing out how CVS has been irresponsible in the past.

    What - in the past health was at some point more important than profit?

    Generally speaking - when you corporatize your concerns you bastardize them.

    If there was a plausible danger of the woman dying an asthma attack, then it would have been legally jeopardizing to withhold the device, even without any payment.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Ok - let's reel in the 'she was gona dye!" stuff.

    If she was having THAT SERIOUS of an attack then she wouldn't have been able to go INTO a pharmacy and stand and wait - and then argue over money and so on.

    I'd hope, at least, that if it was THAT SERIOUS she'd be hauling ass to a hospital at which - for free, no upfront cost - they'd be able to provide her the necessary medicinal.

    If you believe that the essential basis of communism is to help others in need, and you still disagree with it, I don't even have words to describe how twisted you are.
