Ha ha, Ted, you wacky socialist! Don’t you know life is a zero-sum game and the rich and powerful can only win by making everyone else suffer?
Apathy, greed, and ignorance are precursors to turning a constitutional democratic republic into an authoritarian dictatorship?
Not really the “message to individuals”, but the message to individuals without lots of money. I suspect “they” don’t actually care if the needy commit suicide. They just want to erase any guilt feelings by saying they tried to prevent it.
Works at the other end with the fetus. US social conservatives, more accurately reactionaries, will be oh so concerned about the fetus, sorry baby, coming to term and being born, but once that happens they happily abandon the child to grinding poverty. That’s for their parents to deal with, not the state!
I have a real whacky idea, DON’T SPEED!!!

Maybe we should try universal national health care.
Life is tough and then you die, don’t depend on the govt for anything,
unless you worked for them for 30 years and are still collecting your retirement cash.
Another stress is that Barr will pass out from sharpie fumes due to all the redactions on the Mueller report.
At least the give you $250 if you kill yourself.
Looks like Rall, who likely earns several times 6 figures/year, struggles with his wealth and socialism. Of course it’s easier to be a socialist when you have wealth. Just ask Bernie.
I like Rall a lot when he’s not bashing Obama, or Hillary.
It seems interesting how the GOP wants to claim that the Democrats are anti-Israel. It is fine with me if the Republicans want to make friends with Israel, a country in which abortion is free, they are far more gay positive than we are, they had women in the military in far greater roles and more prominently long before we did, and they had a woman prime minister several decades ago.
Life in our plutocracy.
“All those people oughta die in a ditch somewhere, rather than use up resources that I deserve!”
This is what comes when we do not take care of our Democracy, do not make the effort our Founders charged us with, and do not fight those who oppose our Constitution while claiming to support it. ‘progressives’ are liberals with not guts to fight. We need a real Liberal to lead this Nation, and lead the fight against conservatism.
A liberal is a man who leaves the room when the fight begins – Heywood Broun (US journalist and socialist, former liberal)
