Can this thread be closed for bigotry and jimboston be given a ban according to the bigotry guidelines?
Oh, I almost forgot- this is CC where guys like NightStrike wield mod powers. Carry on then.

I am annoyed whenever I have to pay for someone else's medical care... but I understand (a bit) when it's a poor person or even someone incarcerated. I understand they need legitimate medical treatment and can't get it on their own. It annoys me... but I understand.
I am outrage when I have to pay for things that ARE NOT LEGITIMATE.
Right. You're a taxpayer so you should get to decide what your tax money is being spent on. Are you one of those guys who yells at police officers that you pay their salary? I think you probably are, although I don't want to make any assumptions.
(I think you are.)

Suddenly, I'm convinced you're right because you used capital letters.
(That was sarcasm, just FYI.)

A lot of poor African children are not getting the food THEY need. Why should you rich Americans give food to the homeless Americans?

So you're saying that prisoners who have depression or other mental problems shouldn't receive any medication or therapy at all? It seems like you're saying that.

Who should provide them for them then?

Perhaps you should start a petition. If you get 1000 signatures, or "likes" on Facespace or whaterv, maybe those evil commies will come out from under your bed.

Yes, you only want your pet issues addressed, to hell with anyone else's problems, amirite?

So you're saying, everyone should pay for their own medical care then. So poor people who can't afford medical care should just do us a favour and die, right?
