35. I don't think this smacks of GOPish behavior
OF COURSE I will never stoop to that level. But let me ask you this? Do you scuba dive in flip flops and your regular bathing suit? Or do you use the proper equipment? It's apples and oranges. If a person KNOWINGLY takes this risk; knowing it's risky for him/her to ride a motorcycle without a helmet, crashes, and winds up a vegetable why should my insurance go up?

Does a person knowingly become indigent? No. Smoking is addictive and many smokers began to smoke before the health affects were widely known. Sure, I think we need to help them. Freedom is one thing but deliberately putting oneself at risk is another.
