Your disgust is the predictable result of your inability to understand what human rights are.

I sometimes find it easier to "substitute" objects during an argument. Can take away the "emotional factor" of a position. Can look at things a little more objectively.

So from now one, instead of "the right to health care" we should substitute "the right to a 60 inch LCD HDTV". I mean, every one deserves such access. It is a basic necessity isn't it.

So if we as a society deem this to be a "right" it would be OK then?
