I didn't know that doctors, nurses, administrators, etc. all worked for free in the rest of the world.

I didn't know pharmaceutical companies were all non-profit, and researchers worked for room and board.

Everyone makes money off of health care; the only question is whether the profit goes to the hard working people or if the government bureaucrat gets the biggest slice.

Red herring, but I'll answer your implied argument by saying that the death penalty is supposed to be 1) a deterrent and 2) a way of removing extremely dangerous people from society. If revenge is a part of it, it's not not codified in law and only a side effect of the existence of capital punishment.

Scott Adams is just now "breaking up" with the government? Well, there's your problem. You're a little late in getting over your Stockholm Syndrome. We need many more people to leave this abusive relationship, and realize that keeping government power in check doesn't mean you hate poor people, don't want infrastructure, or are a terrorist.

I'll have consumer electronics that have ROHS certification with the Crazyfornia label on it. It's ROHS, so I know the solder is lead-free. This makes me wonder what other horrible substances could possibly be in there. Are copper or gold now carcinogens in CA? Maybe if I grind down the plastic casing and snort it, I'll get cancer?
