Back when I was eligible, I went to the V.A. suspecting that I had strep throat. The doctor said "You don't have strep, but have some strep medicine anyway." I was in so much pain that I was unable to sleep and I did not want to live like that. They gave me prescription-strength cough drops and they soothed my throat instantly. Medicine has done great and wonderful things, but Mom still has diabetes and many other ailments. Ninety-nine percent of what my brother says is noise to me. My dad died at the age of sixty-four and many pass away much younger than that.

What am I supposed to do about any of that?!

However, your comment reminds me of people who complain about problems, and their negativity only makes things worse, or break laws because they disagree with them.

If the laws are bad, why not start a petition to change them?
