“It’s my business because I will have to pay for their hospital bills while they “live” their lives in a vegetative state. You will, too.”
And that what the government will say once they push through health care, we are saying that you can’t do X because it will cause an increase in health care.
Almost everything you do is a “privilege” any license is a privilege, a doctor has the “privilege” of being a doctor because we give him/her a license, same thing with a lawyer, CPA, etc. Heck even voting has been called a “privilege”.
So if it’s really about saving money, which you said it was your business because you have to pay for their hospital bills, then here I’ll save you a bunch of money, all we have to do is set the speed limit to 10 mph. All cars will have a limiter install to prevent speeding.
There I just saved over a 1,000 lives a day, what too slow, don’t you want to save children? How heartless are you to let children die so you can drive a little faster. Think of the health care dollars you’d save?
And what’s really sad is there are people who’ll think that was a good idea.
And before you ask yes I rode in the back of a truck many times. I was GREAT!! Heck I’ve did it this summer.
I even sat on my dad’s lap at five years old so I could steer the van. I slept in the back window of the car. I played with my hot wheels in the back of a station wagon, no seat belt, I wasn’t even in a seat.
Most of my friends have done the same, yet somehow we survived.
