quote for the morning
“We conservatives have little business decrying euthanasia unless we also stand against the elimination of old folks from our everyday experience. This, not Obama’s health plan, is our society’s significant step towards doing away with the elderly. Even if our beloved geezers aren’t in danger, we should not accept having them sequestered in nursing homes and “assisted-living facilities.” In some areas today, one is hard-pressed to find any old people at all other than the gentleman who welcomes you as you enter the local Walmart. He’s nice, but where are all his friends?” ~ Matthew Schmitz
I always think of The Giver when I read things like this.
