Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

You can’t sell them, but government can take it…

You or I don’t have the right to sell our organs (or parts of them), but in a brilliant display of what the progressives stand for, New York State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky - a demcorat, and a damned liberal one while you are at it since camouflages his party affiliation - now wants to use the power of government to take them. You can’t make this shit up. These morons not only balk at anyone proposing people be allowed to decide if they want to sell their organs – they will take advantage of the poor! – but accuse such people of being motivated by evil greed. WTF is the motivation that drives this kind of pond scum to think government can then simply take them? Even if I am dead they are mine and my families, not the governments! Is this idiotic idea more logical devolution of where Obamacare is taking us all to?

I agree that the government not should be involved in such things, but it appears you would be allowed to opt out of it. Over time though, I would be surprised if it became like our voluntary income tax. Anyhow, I would feel sorry for for the person who got my organs.

From each according to their ability
to each according to their need.

That about sum it up for ya’ll?

Oh, and some will be more equal/deserving than others.

Once again, Larry Niven is a visionary…

Maybe so, but the default position here is that people are the property of state. This is a disturbing trend…

We should end the political careers of those that think like this moron, not downplaying it. There are many things I seriously doubted would come to pass that have. Some of them I would have told you were damn near impossible, and yet they happened. Ten years ago nobody in government – short of the usual moonbats in San Fran – would have dared voice this idea as a serious thing. MY perosnal experience is, and you can dismiss it if you want, that this guy is but the first of many which hold such draconian beliefs that the media is covering. There are many more like him that feel government should tell us peons how to live our lives because they know better. Ignoring things like this, because you feel they will not come to pass, is precisely what makes it possible for this kind of stupid to happen. It also seems to often be the defacto defense from the people that actually think this stuff could be made to work but don’t want to yet say they like the idea, as well.

They came for my neighbors eyes but I was blind so I did not stop them

And they came for my neighbors ears but I was deaf so I did not stop them

Now they are coming for hearts… please, who will stop them?
