@BSinMA: BS indeed, and vile human being to boot. So drunk on your individualist hubris that you can't even conceive of a patient being in this position without having "taken a risk." I suppose all those with preexisting conditions, or who can't afford health insurance, or the people in your life who've had, say, cancer are accountable for that too?

News flash: the world isn't fair. People succeed, fail, prosper, and die every day undeservedly. Maybe you agree with this. But if you don't value fairness, I'm not sure what the point of living in society is.

If you live in the United States, then you have already taken advantage of at least three dozen government services so far today. Sad thing is, you don't even realize it. The Tea Party imagines it's full of rugged, self-sustaining survivalists. That's neat, but really they're just camping out in their parents' back yard.

You don't have to believe that Agenda 21 is an international conspiracy to conclude it is a bad idea. The fine print requires coordination of zoning decisions with organizations outside those localfolks who know the area. Sustainability policies may be good, may not be but the local citizens should be the ones deciding without interference from federal or international bodies

The question was wrong. It should not have been do you let him die, it should have been do you let him go bankrupt? That answer is a resounding yes! Hospitals don't let people die because they have no insurance. If this young man wanted to take a risk he has to pay the consequences - losing his house,credit rating, car,whatever he has of value. I was so sick during the Obamacare debate of hearing people complain of going bankrupt paying for health care. I'd rather lose my house, than be forced to wait for a life-saving operation for a year under socialized medicine and lose my life. People go bankrupt from buying too much unimportant stuff all the time. Health care is important and we need to treat it as our own personal responsibility, not someone else's.

Don't you love how these writers have nothing good to say about the American People? So they character assassinate them in an effort to sell they misinformation? Regarding UN Agenda 21, I do not care what the UN is up to. I care what is going on in my home town with severe conservation restrictions, changes in the zoning board, Open space plans that over regulate property owner rights, so called green communities that get fed and state funds and the taxpayer ends up footing the bill. Side note to the writer, not everyone shares the audiences sentiments. Get a clue.

I thought this very interesting both in the reactions from Dems as well as what was said by some of the TPers.

"let him die" is a very non- christian pro evolution/survival of the fittest stance. I don't think TPers (many which claim christian) and progressives (which many vilify christianity) realize this. It is an exact opposite of their respective views. Biologically speaking, humans have cancelled out many of nature's population controls. We fight hard to save those who would normally be de-selected by nature to survive. This results in 2 problems. 1. Population increase beyond nature holding capacity resulting in damage to the environment. 2. Genetic mutations/medical conditions that would not normally survive not only do so but procreate and pass on the genetic/medical weakness.

It is very interesting to see his complete reversal of positions..though I think many have not realized it as such.
