We want our free healthcare!

Some North Carolina hospitals sue patients who fail to pay their bills. (They want to get paid for services rendered; go figure.)  The NC NAACP says that's a bad thing because you're picking on poor people and they want the hospitals to stop. 

Me, I think being poor sucks in a lot of ways.  You can't have nice cars, you don't get to live in a good neighborhood, people may not provide you services they don't think you can pay for and so on.  I started out relatively poor, and it's why I've worked really hard to not be poor.  I figured out fairly early that being poor sucks and I don't like it.

Perhaps others ought to try it sometime.  Before someone decides that the free ice cream has ran out and all you get is carrot sticks.

Amazing how many of these 'poor' people manage to have the latest, most expensive cell phones, watches, gold jewelry, and blinged-out cars. Yet they expect others to pay for the 'essentials.' It's all about priorities.
