Seriously, I'm Not Making This Up.
“If you break a leg, you’re going to be in pain, nothing wrong with getting something that reduces the pain. But if you get 20 days worth of pills and you only need them three days, there’s 17 days sitting there. Invariably some of the kids are going to find them, or you’re going to take them and get you addicted.”You insufferable, cretinous, petty tyrant! You're a pathetic waste of flesh, blood and other people's oxygen. What gives you the right to condemn other people to pain? What gives you the right to pass judgement on people at all? You get to be judge, jury and sentence people to pain?
The medical side of this insane. The war on pain medication (one case) has been going on for a long time. Having sat with Mrs. Graybeard's general surgeon after her hernia surgery, and the orthopedic surgeons at other times, I know they are concerned people try to get by without pain medication too much as it is. I know that they're concerned that the pain causes unhealthy blood pressure increases and more. But even that isn't the point.
The point is that once again, innocent people suffer because criminals commit crimes. Instead of going after criminals, as Bloomberg said in the same conference:
“You see there’s a lot more hold-ups of pharmacies, people getting held up as they walk out of pharmacies,” he explained. “What are they all about? They’re not trying to steal your shaving cream or toothpaste at the point of a gun. They want these drugs.”First off, these cretins wouldn't be pointing a gun if your asinine "gun-free paradise" laws were working. Second off, what makes you think this law will work considering how badly those laws work? Finally, how about you pay your police to go after the people robbing the innocent?
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
