    If the KFC thing IS a hoax-it's a JUSTIFIED hoax [View all]

    (Note: all of what follows is written on the assumption that the family is telling the truth about the denial of insurance coverage)

    KFC is part of the corporocracy that spent decades making sure we didn't have anything close to comprehensive, let alone universal healthcare-and then supported that same sector in its still-unrelenting campaign to repeal the ACA and replace it with-nothing.

    And in a country where, even with the ACA, healthcare access is still mainly a privilege rather than a right, people with sick or badly-injured children are morally entitled to do whatever they need to do, short of actually doing physical harm to others, to get the treatment their kids need. To say otherwise is to put "the law" above all else, even simple common humanity.

    These are times when Robin Hood and even Pretty Boy Floyd actions are justified, if that's what is needed to get something close to a decent life for all.

    So fuck sanctimony and fuck self-righteousness about "right and wrong" and how terrible it is to "steal" from a giant, artery-clogging corporate behemoth.

    If this child's parents staged a "hoax", it's because they had NO OTHER CHOICE.

    And nobody here can truly say that, given the same situation, we wouldn't do the same thing.

    1. I'm sure that was part of Grandma's thought process

    to screw KFC because it opposed Obamacare.

    39. A lot of individuals who are not 1%ers gave money to the family

    How do you rationalize that?

    46. Would they have done so, if not for the publicity?
    Ken Burch really is nuts.

    It's the narrative doncha know.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Pick a target, any target. You can justify it, in the end.

    Geeez....

    25. You have to be kidding me.

    "Nobody here can truly say that, given the same situation, we wouldn't do the same thing."

    Speak for yourself. I wouldn't, and it is disgusting to imply that most people on DU lack moral character.
    Hey Dumbass, You don't have to imply that little fact. All you have to do is look at the posts on your pathetic forum to prove you DUmbasses have no moral character.
