So they are ALL stupid and cant think for themselves?....
You may need protecting from yourself, but i certainly dont. How dare an authority tell me what I can or cant do to myself. It's my body not yours, not the governments, not the EU's. Mine.
If I want to skewer myself in the eye, thats up to me, but don't ban skewers, as it would ruin everyones barbecues.
Punishing the masses for the actions of a few is wrong.
Should we ban rock climbers? Do they need protecting from themselves?
Should we ban cars? For do they not kill hundreds of people every week?
Should we ban all kitchen knives because someone got stabbed?
Where does it end.
I dunno about you but the thought of walking to work and eating steak with a spoon sounds crap. I'l take the risk thanks, if I'm allowed that is?.
As I keep mentioning, this all comes down to money.
It's interesting that the same people who complain about nanny, will gladly accept that "free" hearing aid. It's not free, of course. A good heading aid costs at least $500 US, and can easily go to $1,000 US. This is per ear.
Who pays for that? All the people paying taxes, including the non stupid ones. Why should they pay for the stupid ones then?
Same thing for insurance.
Buy your own hearing aids.
