View Diary: Ted Cruz says health care would be bad for people who don't have it (82 comments)

  •  In Texas it is perfectly acceptable to punish the (8+ / 0-)

    poor, cruelly and unusually.  

    All the poor have to do to receive medical care as an entitlement though, is to pull a hold-up.  A 7-11 will get you enrolled as quick as a bank.  

    And convicted of a capital crime, one can be assured that the injection site will be well sterilized with an alcohol prep, as the state does not want to be embarrassed by an infection, short-lived as it might be.

    But go to work every day at your minimum wage job and obey the laws, you can forget about the state of Texas giving a fig about your health, not to mention the health of all those children they insisted you have.

    If only law abiding citizens had the same constitutional protections as criminals, Texas would much more closely resemble a civilized society.  And you can sum up the likelihood of that happening in Texas the way Dandy Don Meredith summed up losing seasons:  "If 'ifs' and 'buts' were candy and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas."

    Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville
