I think parent’s need to somehow be more accountable for raising their child in a healthy manner, because in a way it is child abuse/neglect. This means NOT buying liters of soda and maybe COOKING for once. We get it, it’s very hard to raise a kid, but people need to be convinced that what they are feeding/teaching their kids is directly related to that child’s ability to lead a healthy life.
Unfortunately, if we are to truly embrace federal funded health-care, this means providing health-care to all of our citizens in need, even the expensive ones. As much as we might hate their lifestyle they are still our fellow people.[/quote]
I don’t want to pay for someone else’s wreckless lifestyle. Why do people live in the dark with reality? If you eat like shit, drink and smoke excessively, and then get hit with a disease, why would you be so surprised? People know that eating and living poorly has a direct result on their quality and quantity of life, so accept it. The warning labels don’t work, it’s not until you get diagnosed with some shit until you realize it, which most of the time is too late to do something about it.
I am so tired of this attitude that people have that they are helpless with their life. “I am fat, and there is nothing I can do about it, so be it.” Well STFU and don’t complain, because you know that eating garbage makes you this way.
