Remember when violating someone's Civil Rights was a felony, aggressivly pursued, by the Feds?

Default Welp

When the gov't is providing the coverage the gov't is going to look to ban "risky" activities.



As an individual, an insurance company may charge higher rates for a smoker, diver, etc. In a free market I may be willing to pay more to continue my "risky" activity.



However, when the funds for healthcare are sourced through a collective, the gov't can't charge the individual more so it just bans the activity.



Oh, and if I don't like the terms my insurance offers me I can search for another company.



The Gov't will enforce its ban at the point of a gun and throw me in jail for non-compliance.



Free healthcare anyone?

Pure F$cking genius. Couldn't have said it better. Maybe meaner, but not better.

In the USA 83% of women diagnosed with breast cancer survive.



In Britain the survival rate is 43%.



Socialized medicine. Those who want it deserve it.

Default New Zealand Automobile Association is the way to go.

And the AA has given a warning to anyone considering getting a motorcycle to save a few dollars to "carefully weigh the increased risk to life and limb".



A modern small car has similar fuel efficiency but is up to 80 times safer than a large motorbike, says the association.



"A better option would be a bicycle, which is 10 times safer than a motorbike and gets you fit as well, while buses are the hands down winners on safety."

They are right. I feel this is the training and safety precautions we need. We should prevent people from buying motorcycles. This will decrease motorcycle deaths.



There is absolutely no reason to disagree. This is the right way to go. Push everyone to buying small cars and bicycles.



If you disagree you are wrong and uninformed.



Push the NZ AA Motorcycle plan TODAY.

Apparently the Korean automakers have lobbyists too. LOL



This is an exact parallel to the successful GM-led lobbying effort to terminate urban mass transit systems in the 1950s

No, much like a radical liberal or an ultra conservative, it is the "Do As I say, Not As I Do" blathering.

As much as I am loathe to do so I would like to thank Kdoof for posting this article, even if he inadvertantly did so to bolster one of his idiotic arguments. If reading about this sort of twisted dictatorial state sponsered stupidity doesn't help to galvanize the readers of MO against ALL other current and future govenmental actions concerning our sport (actually make that any governmental action concerning anything save government downsizing) then we face a future controlled by and for people who still need mommy to come wipe their behinds when they're done on the potty.

You're off your meds again aren't you. The only things you forgot were travel papers to be checked at county and state borders, weekly registration at the local gestap....er, regulation control and enforcement office, rewards for family members who report violations at home and relocation at state sponsored re-education camps.

If lots of people agree about something it must be bad.
