The owner warned me; if I didn't have it snug against my shoulder it would break my collar bone.
It didn't kick as hard as I expected.
Great system actually. The only way to avoid the horror stories of people being kidnapped for organs or, worse, the poor selling their organs, is to ensure there are enough donated organs available.
So instead, we only have to worry about hospitals purposely letting you die so they can harvest your organs. If you object, please tell me how this can be avoided. We can't be little Polyannas who think doctors (and hospital administrators, who may not even have medical degrees) can and will do no wrong. Even well-meaning people can make callous decisions with the belief that it's for "the greater good". The Hippocratic oath simply so longer applies; it became the hypocritical oath a long time ago.
The US Govt is going to pick this up, just in time for the elections.
I'm sure the Prison Corporations will be in favor; as well as all the greedy politicians.
It's not like it's legal, or anything, but Really; when has that stopped them from doing something?
Actually, all hyperbole aside, my thoughts were "why are they stopping this and why aren't WE in the US doing this?"
It sounds like a great idea. If someone is going to die anyway, after exhausting the judicial system (again speaking for the US), why waste these organs that could go to help the many people on the waiting lists?
It seems a waste to lose such a vital resource that could help the lives of many innocent people.
Most people are on death row for taking lives unjustly (premeditated murder, etc), why not use this as a method for them to give life to others?
Seems like it would balance out the karma in life a bit, no?
Looks like I'll land well, I was submitted to 5 higher paying jobs before even being able to upgrade my monster profile.
This will not change until you strike the fear of god into every elected hack in Congress. I don't care if they personally feed Warren Buffet's money to starving babies -- let them know they are gone at the next election.
Yes, you sitting on your ass reading this.
At one point in time the US was more free then other countries. This is because the size and scopr of the federal government has traditionally been constrained and limited for the most part. The cold war changed a lot of that ss well did the hippy movement of the 60's and the economic colapse in the 70's. Government expanded rapidly trying to "PROTECT" us from then communidt russians and the people started demanding more of the federal government which they were more then happy to address as long as it could increase the powet it held over the people.
This isn't party specific either. Even when a party runs against it as part of their platform, once they get power then make it worse but different.
