Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Open message to my patient

You have one chance at living and you need to get your act together. Not doing as we ask of you, continuing with the recreational drugs even while hospitalized, is going to kill you. Not because of the act, but because if you don't straighten out you will not be eligible for the transplant you need to survive. You have a small child that you will not see grow up and graduate. Do you really want his only knowledge of you to come from the BabyDaddy or whoever takes him to raise when you're gone?

There is one other thing. You are not paying for this. We, your fellow taxpaying citizens, are. We have paid for all of your treatment to this point and you are asking us to continue to pay for the rest. A transplant is very, very expensive and it may seem crass of me to mention it, but if you want us to give this to you then you need to do your part.
