A guy — Jeffery Quick is his name — via a longtime friend, on Facebook, just recently asked what I consider to be a very probing question. It goes not only to “Health Care” — which is really only Drug Companies, HMOs or any “well administered” or private concern hospital — but public policy in general.
Public Policy in General. Everyone seems to have their pet booty.
If you have a “right” to make me pay for your health care, how come you don’t have a “right” to make me pick your cotton?
You know what? It’s an insanely simple and profound question and that’s the beauty of it. Doesn’t it almost invite you to blank out reality?
I’ll relish the silence in comments, content with the sound of crickets. Or, I’ll deal with mass equivocation.
