We Can't Have People Exercising Freedom, Even Economic Freedom on Their Own Property And In A Down Economy Too! Good thing we have the state to protect us. It scares me to think of the horrible world in which we would live if they weren't there to get in the way of our own foolishness! The idea of this woman thinking she can engage in economic activity outside the planned confines and construct of state planning. Even worse is using an illness as an excuse to play on our sympathies. How dare her! Doesn't she understand all of this is for her own good?
