==========<quoted text>It is not my fault people are weak and stupid that they can not reframe in over drinking the sodas or stuffing their mouths with every and anything that is on the list of putting weight on. But I should not be penalizes for someone elses weakness. And WMCOl I brought this up because it has been on the news lately. I do know I am paying more each day for the weakness of others. And who the hell is making me pay for these weakness of others? Anxious for your stupid answer to this one.
That's the point. No one is "making" you pay for sugary drinks, or airline fares, or just about anything else. It is mostly up to you as to what you do.
The thing is you are already paying for weaknesses of others with insurance, cars, food, transportation and everything else you use, and a lot, way before the soft drink tax, but you don't have to.
Live off your land. Raise your own food. Make your own clothes. Use the wood from those big trees on that block you own. Self-treat yourself. Withdraw from the outside world. Of course you will have to die to stop personally paying taxes.
It is very selfish to see yourself entitled to something that harms society just because you like it.
