Think what it does to the nation's health bill (insurance premiums, medicare/medicaid costs) that there are lots of super-fat people who have never seen the inside of a gym. About 150 years ago, doctors began to notice that it was smokers who were much more likely to get lung cancer. How many druggies and drunks don't bother to pay for health insurance? How many don't care what they eat, as long as it tastes good? Someone said in that department, americans are walking garbage cans. How many gays think it's their constitutional right to screw each other w/o protection, and it's the taxpayer who must bail them out by paying for their meds plus zillions of dollars in research on the disease? This extends of course beyond health related issues. How many people have worked in maufacturing, not seen the handwriting on the wall for decades that their job will be exported, and don't train themselves for something new, but just go on the public dole when their job finally disappears? Or they stupidly demand government tariffs or the like? How many mothers with children have to get welfare because the mother made an obviously stupid choice in getting pregnant and then dumped by some creep? How many geezers didn't provide for their old-age, thinking medicare/social security is supposed to be their retirement plan?
