Sound Familiar?

I wrote this post on September 14, 2009:

Right to Bear Arms, Individual Rights, Public Health Hysteria and the Police State

Here is a question about the Second Amendment, which protects our right to bear arms, a right the Supreme Court recently reaffirmed as an individual’s right, particularly associated with one’s right to defend oneself from the aggression of others. However, the court specifically referred to the right existing within “one’s home.”

My question is this: If there are laws that forcibly disarm a citizen while outside of one’s home, such as while walking in public areas, and that citizen is attacked by some assailant and killed because of being disarmed by the state and thus unable to defend himself, the officials who engaged in that legal disarming, such as the legislators and the mayor or governor who signed it into law, can’t be charged with “aiding and abetting” or being “accessories” because of lack of “intent,” but can they be charged with “involuntary manslaughter?”

Didn’t the Founders create our Constitution and the Bill of Rights with the intention of protecting the individual from the state?

What would the American Founders have done if there were a “Royal Gun Control” policy? Would the Revolution have been possible?

Here is Will Grigg on some issues with local police in Support Your Local Sadist.

In Massachusetts, a bill passed both houses of the legislature in response to H1N1 Flu pandemic hysteria, that will give “authorities” the power to, without warrant, forcibly enter private homes of people suspected of having that illness, and either force vaccinations or “quarantine” them if they refuse, or they would face heavy fines and/or imprisonment. I don’t know if Gov. Patrick has signed it or intends to. It depends on how pro- or anti-civil liberties he is.

It is interesting how people on the left and Democrats were in the past very pro-civil liberties and individual rights. I think that’s changed.

And, with any further government or Federal government control over the entire health and medical care system, the police state mentality and hysteria might very well increase.

Mandatory Masks Imposed by Ignorant Authoritarian Bureaucrats

Some governors and mayors have imposed mandatory face mask or coverings, even though the CDC had previously said that it’s not a good idea for the general public to wear the masks, until changing its mind and suggesting we should wear a mask. And some of those government fascists are threatening fines of hundreds of dollars if the slaves show disobedience and don’t comply.

Dr. Russell Blaylock has an article recently on the health risks of wearing the masks, especially over prolonged periods of time, including the N95 masks that are really meant for medical personnel and surgeons, etc. (No links given in the article, but FYI I’m providing some of the specific footnotes that go with the quoted portions here, so you can Google for those studies.)

On the N95 mask, Dr. Blaylock writes:

There is a difference between the N95 respirator mask and the surgical mask (cloth or paper mask) in terms of side effects. The N95 mask, which filters out 95% of particles with a median diameter >0.3 µm2 , because it impairs respiratory exchange (breathing) to a greater degree than a soft mask, and is more often associated with headaches. In one such study, researchers surveyed 212 healthcare workers (47 males and 165 females) asking about presence of headaches with N95 mask use, duration of the headaches, type of headaches and if the person had preexisting headaches.2

They found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia). It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. (Footnotes: “Zhu JH et al. Effects of long-duration wearing of N95 respirator and surgical facemask: a pilot study. J Lung Pulm Resp Res 2014:4:97-100.”)

And:

While most agree that the N95 mask can cause significant hypoxia and hypercapnia, another study of surgical masks found significant reductions in blood oxygen as well. In this study, researchers examined the blood oxygen levels in 53 surgeons using an oximeter. They measured blood oxygenation before surgery as well as at the end of surgeries.4 The researchers found that the mask reduced the blood oxygen levels (pa02) significantly. The longer the duration of wearing the mask, the greater the fall in blood oxygen levels. (Footnotes: “Bader A et al. Preliminary report on surgical mask induced deoxygenation during major surgery. Neurocirugia 2008;19:12-126.”)

And apparently the drop in oxygen levels can impair immunity:

Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. . This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome (Footnotes: “Shehade H et al. Cutting edge: Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1 negatively regulates Th1 function. J Immunol 2015;195:1372-1376.”, “Shehade H et al. Cutting edge: Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1 negatively regulates Th1 function. J Immunol 2015;195:1372-1376.”, And “Sceneay J et al. Hypoxia-driven immunosuppression contributes to the pre-metastatic niche. Oncoimmunology 2013;2:1 e22355.”)

So, because my fascist governor has imposed Mandatory Mask or pay a fine of lots of money, I have to wear the mask, which I am doing when I go out, but lowering it under my mouth when I’m walking and there’s no one around, and putting it back up when I go into the store. So, that’s what I’m doing.

I hope that, in the case of someone developing some sort of health problem because of being made to wear the mask, that person or those people SUE THE CRAP OUT OF THOSE FASCIST, IGNORANT GOVERNORS AND MAYORS!!!

 

More on the COVID Scamdemic

Robert Wenzel posts on the “nut job power freak governors” who ordered nursing homes to have to admit coronavirus patients, knowing that the elderly are the group most vulnerable to succumbing to the coronavirus COVID-19. New York and the criminal Cuomo aren’t the only states murdering elderly people in nursing homes. Wenzel shows a tweet by Jack Posobiec who states that his team has found that New York, New Joisey, Michigan, California, and Pennsylvania all ordered nursing homes to have to admit coronavirus patients.

And Wenzel has another post regarding the mayor of Ocala, Florida who says he will not enforce the state’s “phase one” of lifting sanctions on businesspeople and so on. (The governors, including Massachusetts governor Charlie Half-Baker and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sunununu, are lifting their sanctions by “phases,” in true Soviet, central planning style. Those two idiots, and Florida Gov. Ron Duh Santis, are all Rethuglicans, not Dumocrats. However, I’m not sure about Sunununu but I KNOW that Charlie Half-Baker HATES Donald Trump, and I think his Trump-hate is one of his main motivations of his lockdown crap, another one being Baker wants that stimulus money! But Ron Duh Santis is a Trump supporter, so the main reason I can see for his playing along with this fascist unconstitutional crapola is because he is just really DUMB, the more accurate phrase for him being “Useful Idiot,” in service to the ones with their society-destroying agenda.)

Speaking of that, Jon Rappoport has this terrific article on the “Chinese system coming to America.” It’s a plannedemic, for a new Soviet Amerika. (I know, “Chinese,” “Soviet,” not that much difference.)

And Dr. Mercola has an article on the well-known hazards of coronavirus vaccines. The greedy, Big Pharma agenda has been way out in the open now for all to see.

Medical Doctors Debunk Dr. Fauci, YouTube Takes Down Non-Propaganda Videos

These videos of two medical doctors, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in California, debunking Dr. Fauci et al. propaganda, were taken down by YouTube, even though they reached over 5 million views. YouTube is another propaganda branch of the U.S. government, no doubt about it.

According to Paul Joseph Watson,

In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask, “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”

Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame.

“When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?’” Erickson said. “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”

The video was deleted late last night for “violating YouTube’s terms of service.”

I guess propaganda is a “Term of Service,” and truth is not.

But apparently BitChute has the videos, and here they are:

Part 1

And Part 2:

Shady Shenanigans in New York

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has a video including some funeral home directors in New York, part 1 of an investigation into fraud, waste and corruption in this ongoing COVID fiasco. The funeral directors doubt the legitimacy of alleged deaths attributed to the pandemic.

And here is a New York City nurse who is speaking on behalf of a whistleblower, another nurse who is afraid of possibly being fired or punished for speaking out. The nurse says that NYC hospitals are killing their COVID patients (or those presumed to be suffering from COVID), and she’s using the word “murder,” “murder via protocol.”

Finally, here is an article on Big League Politics about New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo forcing nursing homes to admit people who already tested positive for coronavirus, who were determined by the state to be “medically stable.”

Bureaucrats are sick psychopaths.

Justina Pelletier Lawsuit Jury: The Government Owns Your Children

Justina Pelletier was the teenage girl who has suffered from Mitochondrial Disease and after having been treated in Connecticut and at Tufts Medical Center for several years, she was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital at which time the doctors declared that her entire medical issues really weren’t medical but psychological.

Justina was then put into the care of psychiatrists against the parents’ wishes, placed into a psychiatric institution where she was abused, and her physical conditioned had deteriorated extensively. Additionally, at the beginning of this terrible ordeal, the hospital and doctors accused the Pelletiers of “child medical abuse” and called in CPS to take custody away from the parents.

The psychiatrists had also claimed Justina to be a “ward of the state” as aided and abetted by CPS, and used “ward of the state” as their excuse to legally engage in human experimentation for the hospital’s government-grant-funded research.

Most recently, when the Pelletiers’ lawsuit trial began in January, I wrote a summary of the whole case and reposted several posts I had written previously to give people an idea of what really went on in Justina’s and the Pelletiers’ ordeal that goes back 7 or 8 years now. I recommend that recent post which gives quite a lot of detail in the whole case.

As I wrote in the older posts, the psychiatrists have this ideology of “behavior modification,” to the point of being a religiously fanatical ideology, in which they are taking a medical patient and attempting to fit a square peg into a round hole as they ritualistically impose their personally indoctrinated psychological ideology onto an innocent human being.

Destroying her life physically and mentally doesn’t matter to the zealots. And they are zealots, believe me. I have met people like this.

Justina has had to be in a wheelchair, whereas prior to the hospital and CPS’s seizure of Justina she was able to stand and walk and do figure skating. She is now 21.

Jury Verdict at Pelletier Family Lawsuit Trial of Boston Children’s Hospital

So the jury deliberated for about 6 hours after about a 5-week trial, with many witnesses and documents presented as evidence, and the jury found the hospital as not negligent in Justina’s decline of health. This sheeple jury is all in on Establishment Medicine Worship, believe me.

When reading a Boston Globe article about the jury’s verdict (which I will not link to), it seems to be, with jurors’ statements after the trial, a totally different scenario than everything I have heard or read about over these past 6 years now. That included interviews of Mr. Pelletier describing the ordeal (as shown in my earlier post linked above), rallies held on Justina’s behalf that included people such as Rev. Patrick Mahoney pleading in person with then-Gov. Deval Patrick to get the Massachusetts CPS to free Justina and let her return to her family. It is as though the Pelletier family didn’t get adequate witnesses, and/or the jury just obediently bought everything said by the doctors and hospital witnesses.

In my view, the family should have sought criminal charges as soon as the “doctors” called in CPS and attempted to have Mr. Pelletier arrested for resisting in his daughter being kidnapped and taken away. Charges of kidnapping and child abduction, wrongful imprisonment, torture, false accusation, child endangerment, and child abuse for starters. But, it appears the family didn’t try to do that, or their attorneys advised them to go just for a financial lawsuit. Those doctors are criminals, in my view.

But what the jury is telling us is that we may not question the authority of government-approved doctors. The sheeple jury comes to their defense no matter how bad, no matter how corrupt and greedy, no matter how ignorant and incompetent the “doctors” are who committed such criminal acts against a teenage girl.

So here, in my view, is a rough translation of what the jury was really telling us in its defense of the doctors and the hospital and psychiatrists who screwed up a child’s life:

“We the sheeple of the jury think it’s okay for doctors and hospital staff to forcibly seize a child and take custody away from her parents. We must always trust the judgment of establishment medical professionals above whatever judgment parents might have.

“We also think it’s okay for CPS to put a medical patient into a juvenile detention center, a place for troubled teens even though she had no history of being a troubled teen. We think it’s okay for CPS to get a judge to impose a gag order on the parents and order them not to talk to the media about what the hospital is doing to their daughter. It’s for her own good!

“We must always trust the judgment of the government, CPS and government-approved doctors who know what’s best for us.

“They know what’s best for us regardless of the fact that medical errors are still the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. This includes side effects of prescription drugs, unnecessary surgeries, medication errors in hospitals, hospital-acquired infections, diagnostic errors, and hospitals failing to follow guidelines. According to the Journal of Patient Safety, 210,000 to 440,000 hospital patients die each year because of preventable harm at the hospital. So we must — MUST — trust the judgment of doctors, hospitals and hospital administrators. (After all, those government research grants are very important…)

Okay, thank you, sheeple jurors. And we should definitely trust the judgment of crackpot psychiatrists, who take a psychologically normal teenage girl but who has serious medical issues, and suddenly remove her from the treatments she was used to having (without considering the possible harm such sudden removal could cause) and instead say her problem is “all in her head,” and put her into a psychiatric ward (and, I assume, give her those poisonous psychiatric drugs!), all in the name of using her as a guinea pig for government-funded research, and all in the name of a “behavior modification” ideology.

Yes, we should trust the judgment of sick psychiatrists in USSA Amerika. Just look at this blog by a psychiatrist at the 2019 meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. Look at all the advertisements for antidepressants all over the premises, terrible drugs that in many cases make people more depressed or suicidal! And these psychiatrists at that convention seem more concerned about “wokeness,” about “social justice,” with their obsession with race, gender and LGBT, just like on the college campuses.

No, today’s psychiatrists are not rational people, in my view. They should NOT be trusted!

I can just imagine some poor psychiatric patient in the office who might have uttered an SJW-deemed faux pas. That professional practitioner will make sure to remind that patient of his error, no doubt about that. Today’s psychiatrists and psychologists will probably label such a patient with some disorder, like “Oppositional Defiant,” or “Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder,” or some such thing. (You see what I mean? They’re the nutsos, these psychiatric practitioner professional people! Yep.)

And while the MD psychiatrists are loony-tunes and brainwashed zombies, the PhD psychologists are just as bad. And speaking of the torture that Justina Pelletier endured after the “doctors” confiscated her from her family, we have other psychologists who have engaged in torture, in cahoots with deranged CIA thugs at Gitmo, and with the approval of the American Psychological Association. (Hmm, with “psychologists” like these, who needs monsters?)

So we have a biased jury who are brainwashed to obediently trust the judgment and authority of today’s government-approved “doctors,” government-approved hospitals and government-licensed psychiatrists, who thought that Justina Pelletier’s parents were the problem and were uncooperative. Meanwhile, the jury excused the doctor who wrote an email calling the family “evil.”

And this Soviet-like crap is what we are going to deal with in the future, especially if the government takes over the health care system.

Donald Trump Hates Socialism – Except That … He LOVES Socialism

Jacob Hornberger responds to Donald Trump‘s recent tweets of “America, love it or leave it!” and that “We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country…” and Hornberger explains that America turned socialist long ago and that Trump and the conservatives have supported socialist policies for decades and decades.

Some examples that Hornberger gives include Social Security, Medicare, government “public” schools, immigration controls and the national security state. They all involve income confiscation and redistribution, and central planning.

And as I wrote in my July, 2016 article, Libertarians for Socialism, Trump wrote on his campaign website (no longer available, but Wayback Machine snapshot here), government must “make sure that no one slips through the cracks simply because they cannot afford insurance. We must review basic options for Medicaid and work with states to ensure that those who want healthcare coverage can have it.”

And I wrote:

As Trump made clear in his interview last September with Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, Trump is “going to take care of everybody,” and that “the government’s gonna pay for it.” And he promised to fund all that by raising taxes on the wealthy. In his February appearance on a CNN Town Hall with Anderson Cooper, Trump stated that while he wants to repeal ObamaCare he nevertheless likes the mandate because he doesn’t want “people dying on the streets.” In reference to his Medicaid expansion proposal (which he referred to as “Medicare” in the CNN interview), Trump stated, “That’s not single payer, by the way. That’s called heart. We gotta take care of people that can’t take care of themselves.”

And by “we” he doesn’t mean private charities or businesses, which is the free-market way, but government, which is the failed socialist way.

Here is The Donald in the interview with Scott Pelley, in which Trump explains his support for single-payer, government-run health care:

I also wrote in that article, which appeared on EconomicPolicyJournal.com:

And socialist programs in the U.S. such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are collapsing. But Donald Trump won’t touch Social Security, and, according to his official campaign website, won’t cut anyone’s entitlements.

Obviously that last link which was on Trump’s own campaign website, is no longer available. (Why is there a picture of Hillary on that “Oops!” page?) Here is that page on the Wayback Machine.

Trump won’t touch entitlements because he believes in socialist redistribution of wealth schemes, which is what all those entitlement programs are. He is a socialist.

And this video is a compilation of different Trump interviews and talks in which Trump contradicts Trump and flip-flops like a Romney impersonator.

Anyway, Trump should not say that America will never be a socialist country, when it is a socialist country in many respects. And he can’t say that he is not a socialist when in actuality all his policies are socialist policies. He is one of the most anti-free market, anti-capitalism, anti-private property authoritarian Presidents we have ever had.

So Trump is clueless about what America is all about, which is voluntary exchange and free markets and free trade, not compulsory exchange and government-controlled trade, and America is about private property rights and the voluntary contract. Trump is the one who doesn’t like America and wants to impose governmental intrusions into the economy and into the lives of the people.

Yes, his tax cuts helped to get businesses to raise their wages and salaries and give employees bonuses, and make more investments. But Trump still loves the income tax and doesn’t want to abolish it, despite its being a fundamental aspect of the socialist society that he envisions. The income tax is government theft of private property and wealth because it is based on an involuntary exchange, based on coercion and threats. No different from a robber demanding your money or else.

In the end, Trump is no different from the other socialists, from Elizabeth Warren to George W. Bush. Oh, well.

In 2020, Can the Libertarian Party Nominate a Truth-Teller for President?

In my recent post on some of the prospective Libertarian Party candidates for President of the United State, I mentioned Jacob Hornberger, who is the founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation. I think he has not yet made a formal announcement on a run for President. But he does have a campaign website.

Unlike Gary Johnson and Bob Barr, Jacob Hornberger is not afraid to tell the truth about the evil of American militarism and criminal military invasions abroad, the evil drug war, and the evil of taxation and welfare redistributionism, all of which have contributed to America’s downfall.

For instance, Hornberger has a post on his campaign blog, unafraid to tell the truth about Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Congressman Seth Moulton, two Democrat war veterans running for President.

In the blog post, Hornberger mentions Moulton and Buttigieg’s experiences in the U.S. military as invaders of Iraq and Afghanistan, respectively. And that this week both candidates have criticized Donald Trump for “faking a disability” to get out of a military enslavement to kill innocent people in Vietnam. Yet, as Hornberger points out, neither Moulton nor Buttigieg has any criticism for the criminal wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan that George W. Bush started and that were carried out by the U.S. military.

The two Democrat candidates clearly do not see the forest for the trees. They are criticizing someone for not invading another country for no good reason, and for not bombing and murdering their people.

While Hornberger doesn’t mention this in that particular blog post, we can get an idea of Buttigieg and Moulton’s warped kind of thinking from their views on domestic policies. They are clearly kooks, just like their fellow Democrat brethren and sistren Democrats for President.

Both Buttigieg and Moulton support the “Green New Deal,” because they are either total ignoramuses or they are just a couple of sniveling dishonest weasels who know that the society couldn’t possibly get rid of cars, trucks, planes and cows and doing so would end up impoverishing and wiping out just about the entire society. So, given that both are quite intelligent people, supposedly, I think they’re just “playing along” with the other Democrats on that issue.

Mayor Pete supports “Medicare for All” because he doesn’t understand why, like ObamaCare, that won’t work in the real world. (Hornberger, by the way, had a recent post on his regular blog describing why Medicare and Medicaid have been the root cause of America’s health care crisis.)

However, Seth Moulton does not support “Medicare for All,” and instead supports the so-called “public option.” In my view, this is probably because Moulton is a slithering, slimy sleazebag who really does want “single payer” i.e. SovietCare but would impose it though the back door.

With a “public option,” we can have our private health insurance if we want it but at the same time a government-run health care program would be available as an “option.” Here, government doesn’t have to worry about the voluntary participation of consumers and instead gets its funding through taxation, which is involuntary, i.e. coercive. So, while the government-run “public option” health care program wouldn’t have to worry about profit and loss and the bottom line to remain functioning, the private sector insurers would still have those extra pressures of competition. Thus, the government-run program will drive the private insurers out of business. There is nothing optional about a “public option.” Eventually the government will be the only insurer. i.e. SovietCare.

So given their dishonest positions on those issues, I am not surprised that both Buttigieg and Moulton have no criticism for the criminal wars of aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan, and instead criticize Donald Trump for avoiding Vietnam, which people should have avoided, either out of moral conscience or to save themselves from being unjustly crippled for life, psychologically traumatized or killed for no good reason.

How many innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan did Buttigieg and Moulton murder? They were the invaders of those other countries, not the other way around. The inhabitants of those lands had every right to shoot back to defend their homes and families from slaughter by the invading U.S. government marauders.

Now, Jacob Hornberger’s saying and writing truthful things about the crimes of government and bureaucracy might not go over too well with many people who have been bamboozled with the religion of American Exceptionalism.

Even in 2020, I don’t know whether the American people are ready to hear the truth about such things. It’s not just a population indoctrinated from their 12 years of government schools, but much of the indoctrination since 9/11 is due to the constant 24-7 propaganda from the goddamned mainstream media! The warmongering “liberal” media! If we look at the NFL and other sports games and their military tributes and America’s churches and their sickening un-Christian military worship, as well as that in pop culture in Amerika, I think it would take a lot of convincing speeches and truth-telling to get people to consider deprogramming themselves after years of obedience and deference to the almighty Amerikan State.

And given how the Libertarian Party convention in 2016 seemed to consist of so many statist sheeple in their nominating of Gary Johnson the pothead, I don’t even know whether it’s possible that the Libertarian Party can return to their being the “Party of Principle” ever again, i.e. the party of Ron Paul and Harry Browne.

Anyway, Jacob Hornberger also has a thing or two to say about “Tariff Man,” Donald Trump. And of course, abolishing the FBI. Yay!

“Medicare for All”? Really?

The U.S. House of Representatives is attempting to shove another “Medicare for All” bill down the throats of the people, with extremely unrealistic mandates, and Laurence Vance has 3 big questions that are not being asked about it.

Vance’s questions are:

1) Is it constitutional? 2) Is it the proper role of government? and 3) Who should pay for health care?

Vance notes that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t authorize the federal government to get involved in health care or health insurance, that it’s not a proper role of the government to get involved in those things as well as many other things, and that no American is entitled to receive health care at the expense of another, meaning involuntarily.

But I also have some questions. Many people now are being indoctrinated to believe that we have a “right to health care,” that is, a right to have someone provide us with medical care when we demand it. Does this include, for example, a fat slob who doesn’t exercise and who eats junk food and doesn’t particularly care about his weight, his health, his heart, his arteries? Should he be included in the “All” who have a “right” to health care, or “Medicare for All?” If so, why should this slob’s neighbors be forced at gunpoint (which is what involuntary taxation is, quite frankly) to have to chip in to pay for providing him with the attention of a doctor when he has his heart attack or stroke? Sorry to be blunt here. Bottom line is, if this guy doesn’t care about his own health, then no, he does NOT have a “right” to force his neighbors to care for him. (If neighbors still want to care for him, then they can always do that, voluntarily, if they want to.)

Same thing for smokers. I know, there are far fewer smokers now than there had been in the past. But they’re still out there, and being litterbugs and throwing their cigarettes down on the ground at the bus stop or wherever. Now, these people KNOW that there’s a good chance that they’re giving themselves lung cancer, heart attacks, and other ailments, because of their smoking. Should they, too, have a “right” to force their neighbors to have to chip in to provide them with health care? I say no. And please don’t give me this “Well I’m addicted, and I’ve tried to quit but can’t” crap. The smoker is voluntarily lighting up a cigarette and putting it up to his mouth and inhaling, and repeatedly. No one is forcing you or threatening you to have to do that. It’s all by your own free will. (If you can’t quit, try hypnosis. One of my mother’s friends did that many years ago and it worked, after she tried everything else.) I don’t believe that people who smoke like chimneys or do other hazardous things to themselves should have a “right” to force their neighbors to provide them with a doctor and medical treatment.

What about people who drink like a fish? Okay, I’m sure you get my point.

No one has a “right” to demand his neighbors give him medical care, no matter what ailments one has, no matter what “preexisting conditions” one has.

What we do have a right to is to not be robbed, by criminals on the street or by criminals from the government. We also have a right to keep all our medical matters private and not be required to give any personal information to anyone including government bureaucrats, our medical matters as well as our financial and other personal matters.

We also have a right to be left alone by bureaucrats. If they want us to participate in some scheme that we don’t want to participate in, then we don’t participate in it, and they don’t send armed goons after us and throw us in a cage if we don’t comply. That is exactly the kind of Soviet or fascist society these people in Washington, the real crazy ones in power now, want. They are police statists who want to force these intrusive schemes onto us whether we like it or not, and if we resist, they send the armed thug police after us, kick in our doors and kidnap or shoot us dead. That is the nature of the socialist ignoramus, it has always been that way, and it always will be that way. These people in Washington reject the idea of freedom because when people are free, the crazies in Washington lose the control over others they crave so desperately.
