he can say whatever he wants. The question is what is our society willing to tolerate and when will people learn to be responsible for themselves instead of expecting everything to come their way?

LOL, our "society" "tolerates" the killing of the unborn. And you want to exile drug users? Good luck with that.

That just isn't the direction our society is moving in. Everything is sliding away from personal responsibility toward group responsibility or third-party blame.

OSHA/MSHA make sure that your personal safety is your employers' responsibility. We expect the majority of our health care expenses to be our employers' responsibility. Our safety when driving a car is a combination of the manufacturers' and the government's responsibility, not our driving.

It's pretty much the case everywhere. We have less responsibility, and with it, less power.
