- Well, you are probably right. Healthy and young people often have no or only mild symptoms. Nonetheless, they are still spreading the disease. Older persons and persons with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes) appear to develop serious illness more often than others. If you have no care for these people, you may have no care in the world.
Why should we be responsible for the bad lifestyle choices of others. You post like its just a condition - born runner or born fatty slob. The fact is these people chose to live this way. They've been laughing at my healthy choices - haha, you abstain from fried food at all the meals. Now you're saying they shouldn't be penalized much for how bad they live and how much of my tax dollars they cost me? Hmm...
Quite selfish. I have no problem supporting people like this.
Many have conditions without living sh1tty lives. That alone is reason enough to support.
Many of the others were born to poor circumstances, and were never raised in a way that allowed them to see how to make good choices. When your parents lifelong model making terrible choices, being lazy, eating crappy food, etc....the kid usually follows suit. A lucky few are so intelligent they figure it out. Most dont.
Those that dont....are being punished for being born less intelligent and to poor parents and environments.
I was born to a wonderful environment and have far more than I could ever dream of having. I've done nothing special to deserve any of that, and I'm not a uniquely wealthy person.
But I have enough to stay comfortable afloat and live a decent life. I see no reason why I wouldn't, or shouldn't, turn around and be okay with giving back to those that were far, far less lucky than I was.
