Where did the kids get the lighter that was used to start the fire? Is it
customary for children that age to be carrying a lighter?
"one old man" - That's a very good point.I guess that
family is now one of the 47% percent, that Mitt Romney classifies as
The parents of one of these boys is setting up a fund to cover medical
expenses.Where are the people who shout about "Personal
Responsibility" and about how "Socialized Medicine" will kill all of
us if we approve of the Affordable Care Act?Is this family lazy?
Are they irresponsible?No. They are just like a vast number of
other American families who are suddenly faced with a serious medical situation
that they cannot afford.Is it because they couldn't afford
premiums for health insurance? Premiums jacked up to outlandish levels because
other people who can't afford to pay for their own medical care are
supported by the rest of us.This is a prime reason WHY America needs
Affordable Health Care.But I guess the conservative way is to
continue forcing families to go begging for help when tragedy strikes.Can someone please tell me how that makes any sense at all?
What a terrible tragedy. Maybe we could store things like gasoline and
chemicals out of reach- somewhere safer. Children do not have much common
sense, but they do have a lot of curiosity. No blame, just a thought for those
of us who are older.
