Choices, not diseases

 

After 69 years on this planet, I am always amazed at the absolute stupidity of my fellow humans.

Now, you are trying to tell me that obesity is a disease, abuse of alcohol is a disease, and abuse of drugs is a disease. Our state actually believes this.

Obesity is a choice, alcohol abuse is a choice and drug abuse is a choice. Prescription drug use is an epidemic created by physicians and drug companies.

Social Security and Medicare are available, according to lawyers, if you have any of the so-called diseases. All three of these so-called diseases can be cured without seeing a doctor; just change your lifestyle.
