Everyone is hanging on the edge of their seat to see what’s gonna happen with universal health care. But why bother? Who cares? I know I’m out of step with most of my country (which doesn’t make me wrong) in not believing that people who poison their bodies should have their bill supplemented by yours truly.
I do not have a solution that would work. There is no way I can even dip a toe into politics because I am so far from the thinking of everyone around me. I just can not understand the irresponsible thinking that goes something like this: I can eat whatever I chose, lie around and get no exercise, use poisons all around me, heck, even smoke, and then I’m entitled to drugs and surgery when my body stops working.
What is up with that?
Perhaps, some day, people will see being significantly overweight as a preexisting condition. Or having new carpeting made of manmade fibers. Or using deet.
Perhaps what we can cover for people who go astray is educational counseling until they get onto a more healthy track.
But it’s all so subjective. There is no solution. The raw foodies *know* that cooked food is poison. They are not going to convince many, even if they are correct that cooking food is madness.
What a mess we’re in!
