Then they came for my potato chips

“First they came for the motorcyclers riding helmetless,
but I said nothing because I didn't ride.

Then they came for the smokers who smoked in public,
but I didn't say anything because I didn't smoke.

Then they came for my Ruffles.”

If health care is a right, then with it comes responsibility -- responsibility to not burden our communal health care resources. That means banning bungee-jumping, sunbathing, a sedentary lifestyle and other dangerous activities, as well as mandating exercise and a healthy diet.

What is it they say, “be careful what you wish for.”
