Text Size: A | A

Fire-ravaged building in Rotterdam needs to be taken down Almost a year ago, there was a catastrophic fire in the building on the corner of Rice Road and Schermerhorn Road in Rotterdam.

Fred, I can't wait to read the lefties attack you and demand you pay for their every want and need. They want to have sex so you need to pay for it. They want to drink and smoke so you need to pay for their cancer treatments. They want to be couch potatoes and collect checks so you need to pay for their heart attacks. If they want to reproduce and not support the kid then you need to pay for it. If you listen to Bob Beckel a devoted lefty, he fully supports Obamacare to get these evil insurance companies. See Beckel was a drugy, and a smoker and oh yea overweight. He had a heart attack and now whines that if pre-existing conditions weren't in Obamacare he'd have a hard time getting insurance from these B$%^#d insurance companies. It's not his fault he has these ailments. Thats the best part of being a lefty. You ride the coat tails of the people who need help through no fault of their own. People who deserve some help. If I want Beckel to pay for his choices then I must not want to help anyone. That's just how these children play the game.

Good column Fred. It's interesting that Obama has made insurance more expensive for smokers even though statistics show their average lifetime medical costs are less than non-smokers. But those who engage in stupid, unproductive behavior that carries more risk of aids than smoking does cancer will pay nothing more for their unhealthy high risk behavior. Nor will gluttons and all those reproductive righters catching and spreading STDs. Who would have thought in America we all would have to pay for others recreational sex.
