A Nurse With Attitude

Where Dark Cynical Humor, Nursing Issues, and Politics Seem to Merge

Why do we need stuff?

We’ve all heard the arguments:

Why does anyone need a gun? … Five guns?   Fifty guns? Scary looking black guns?

And we usually answer: “What’s need got to do with it?”

I want to go even further.

Why does anyone need to mountain climb?  Rock climb?  Sky dive?  Scuba dive?

No one needs to watch television or go to the movie theater. In fact, health professionals keep telling us to get off our butts and get some exercise.

We don’t need pizza, donuts, ice cream, or Kobe beef. Maybe Congress should shut down all the restaurants and mandate everyone eats a specified diet of vegetables and grilled chicken.

We don’t need  large houses or even large apartments. We don’t need fast cars or big trucks.

As a country experiencing serious economic troubles, with trillions of dollars in  debt and over a trillion dollars in deficit spending for the foreseeable future.   We certainly don’t need to borrow more money to fund art, music, sports and other luxuries.

If history is any guide, we don’t need  Freedom.

But then, the gun-banners already know that.
