Dr. Big Brother

This (from the UK) is what we are in-store for:

People who are grossly overweight, who smoke heavily or drink excessively could be denied surgery or drugs following a decision by a Government agency yesterday.

...and people still cheer on universal healthcare?? Why don't the advocates of cradle-to-grave social welfare understand that there will always be strings attached to such benefits? I liken social parasites (welfare-beneficiaries, rent-seekers, subsidy-hounds) to state-sanctioned crack-whores - once on that dole, the powers-that-be know they will forever trade any and all liberty (votes and autonomy) to sustain their "fix." Suckers.
