Every tax is a pay cut. Every tax cut is a pay raise.
Citizens for Limited Taxation
In the old days,
Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS)
was known as gluttony and was a sin. They still
are gluttons, but by inventing a disease, the socialists have
liberated them from having any personal sense of responsibility for their
problem. Now it is a disability and their housing and life's needs
are paid for by the taxpayers of Massachusetts and Framingham.
PWS is not a disease that can be cured. It is a lifetime condition.
The same applies to alcoholics and drug users.
In due time, these people become immobile and can no longer feed themselves and need enablers to feed them.
This is a chromosone disorder, a genetical disorder or disease or condition like cardiovascular disease or cancer. How come these people aren't being helped by the benevolence of the state? How can our state representatives like Tom Sannicandro, and Karen Spilka support this? Because Framingham voters support these idiots. I also believe that each of these reps have relatives with special needs.... a liberal term that means that you the taxpayer, pays for their needs. The real genius of democracy is that the voters are ultimately to blame.
As a victim of diverticulitis resulting in a laparoscopic colectomy to remove eight inches of my large intestines, I consider myself a qualified expert on gluttony. I've paid the price and dropped my weight by changing my diet for the remainder of my life. But, I'm not out of the woods yet.
Now, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, through its contractor, The Advocates, Inc. has entered the weight loss business like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem. As is usual, the government is doing it at a staggering loss, while the others do it for a profit. The Advocates claims to get close to $85,000 per client per year. That's a lot of tax free food.
There is no cure for this condition and the gluttons will have to be cared for, for the remainder of their lives, That could be forty (40) years at $85,000 per year of $3.3 million dollars each. Nice benefits for the gluttons. Even better than lifetime prison sentences. Three or more square meals a day at our expense for life. Perhaps, it would be cheaper if we offered them bariatric or gastric bypass surgery. If they refuse, let them eat cake at their own expense.
Given that there are so many fat and grossly obese people in our society, I'd like to see proof of a chromosone disorder or genetical disorder before I come close to the idea of feeding gluttons. I was born a cynic and will not believe in things that I cannot actually see thru my eyes.
As for myself, I suffer from compassion fatigue.
Compassion fatigue comes from endless requests to fund and care for every wet, hungry, overeating, cleft lipped, club footed, facially deformed, crippled, mentally retarded, brain damaged, lazy, indolent, drug using, alcoholic, autistic, bipolar person in the world.
When you see obese people, you can tell they may have multiple personalities.... such as Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker, the Pillsbury Doughboy, Hagen and Daz, and Sara Lee, amongst others....
