I understand the argument you're making (it's not a good one) but people shouldn't be denied some general pleasure because they can't afford healthcare. Or better yet, maybe you could tell us what the acceptable level of entertainment one can enjoy and how we can scale that?I wonder how many of these accounts have HBO and Showtime added onto their cable/satellite line up.
When the architects of our great republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.
This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note. Instead of honoring its sacred obligation, America has given its people a bad check, a check that has come back marked “insufficient funds.”
