A nice corner moment

On, Jack Cafferty asks the question "What if more than half of Chicagoans don't want the Olympics?" The answer, of course, is that as long as His Hereditary Dweebness wants it, that's all that matters. In the comments on the post, however, one Stephen Fox, of Panama City, FL, opines: "Should it matter that half of Chicagoans don’t want the Olympics in their city? Jack, probably about as much as it should matter that Obama wants to force health care upon those who don’t want it. :-)"

Oh, Mr. Fox? Are there really lots of people out there who don't want health care? If you're in that category, just don't go to the doctor when you're sick. I do believe, crazy as I am, is that the question is who pays for it, and whether anyone's willing to pick up the tab for those who don't have the ability to pay. Now, we already pay for them in myriad ways, and will almost certainly save money in the long run, but even if we don't, I'm pretty sure that you're just an idiot.
