Boot To The Head

wintercow20 asks 'Why is health care special?'

Health Care (must upper case that word now) is special because Health Care is a human right.

I do not know when this happened. I do not recall this from Civics class in eighth grade.  Perhaps I missed that day.

I know this is so because all of the commentators on NPR (and my local Wisconsin Public Radio) go on as if it were so. So maybe they amended the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution or something while I was looking the other way.

So. It is a Right and all of his arguments - as good as I think they are - are moot.

Man that was a neat bit of forensic ju-jitsu, ah'll tell you what.
