We’ve been headed this direction for a long while, with each little block being removed one at a time. Insurance was a responsible move to make, paying a little a month to ward off bankruptcy in case of a catastrophic emergency. It was your choice when, and if, to enroll. You could tailor choices of coverage to your financial situation. Then, businesses began offering company coverage to entice the best workers. That’s when costs began rising, as regular people became insulated from the real cost of care, seeing only their deductibles, and co-pays. About the time baby boomers reached middle age, choices like maternity coverage began to be non-negotiable, universally charged on everybody’s premiums. Nobody noticed but socialism had crept into the insurance companies’ practices. Politicians allowed rules such as no portability because they enjoyed lobbyists “attention”. Then, everything under the sun was covered, and you didn’t have the choice of coverage anymore, for higher premiums, deductibles, and co-pays of course. But by then, we were all addicted to the safety net. When everybody began to complain, politicians stepped in with the one-size fits all approach, still called “insurance” until everybody screams. Then will come the government’s “we know what’s best for you” single payer” that nobody will like. But it will be too late by then.
So many cooks and the pot’s about to boil over.

the jaywalking is not the problem. Did you read the article? He gave the kids 2 chances to get in the cross walk, when he failed to listen and ignore the police he was going to be given a citation, thats when the kid acted out. If you cannot respect authority at 16 how the heck do we expect them to learn and become productive, caring adults

so we citizens just keep having to put up with these liars? Why are they not accountable? For now they let us complain but I believe in the near future that will come to a stop too. We need to figure out how to stop this crap. Voting does nothing we need a new plan

How do these people it out of a school system with language like that? When do you start to help yourself like the rest of us do in life? I want to scream at the ignorance of society, they have been kept down by liberal progressives for long enough.

The child may have a better chance of a normal life without a mother who was nuts and raising him with disrespect and crazy actions. Biological parent(s) are not alway better.

drugs, wether illegal or the ones doctors push on kids so parents and schools can control them instead of the hard work it takes to raise a child
Well, the deputies better "pants it" before they decide which side of the jail to put it in.

She meant well, just needs to be re-educated on how to handle it properly and why it’s happening (look at the moms outfit. The cycle is repeating itself over and over. It is hard to raise a child properly but it is doable.

Someone is not teaching kids. Parents or teachers. A 16 year old who does not have the proper vocabulary to know the word anxiety but ok to have sex? So AX yourself how can this be?
Perhaps you are right...scary thought. Maybe I should start posting nice flattering comments about each candidate just in case they know who I am and where I live. Donald...You are smart. Hillary....You're a screaming hot fox. That should do.
