Someone emailed me the following youtube clip today and I lauged when I saw it, but then it made me angry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_LutWBunb4 With smoking rates declining all the time, who do you suppose will eventually get stuck with this bill? So basically, now I'm paying for everyone else's retirement (Social Security), health care (Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP), groceries (food stamp and other welfare programs), babies (wic card program), education (public schools, college grants)....WHERE DOES IT END?!? I guess when I'm broke and bankrupt and/or have to go looking for a handout myself, that's where it will end. Why is it my responsibility to take care of anyone else, much less everyone else? And why in the world is it a cigarette smoker's responsibility to pay for the health care of some dolt who had kids yet couldn't afford them? If anyone has a logical response to any of these questions, please feel free to leave your comment.
