It’s nice to hear Sanford has so much money they can afford to make charitable donations. ! ! !

I have no problem with helping Ghana, but before we go off helping other countries what about helping the people here who can’t afford medical care right here in the Dakotas? I could use a charitable donation!

How does this benefit our region?
Sanford once again gets a free pass from The Forum to spend money wherever they please.

Well, they get a tax write-off, so they pay less taxes to North Dakota… Oh, wait…

How dare these rich jerks spend their money on something as selfish and wasteful as helping the very poor get something as useless as safe water? Don’t they know that I need some free stuff? Don’t they know that there are people right here in America that want free stuff? That money is not theirs to spend however they want. I get to decide.

â€œThey donâ€™t like our vaccines, but when they come for water, weâ€™d say, â€˜You want fresh water? Roll up your sleeve,â€™ â€ he said. Is that an ethical thought? To withhold fresh water from those who refuse a vaccination. Oh wait…we’re talking about MeritCare Sanford. Never mind.

Yeah, vaccines are pretty bad for you from what I understand. I don’t know why anyone would want to force another human being to be vaccinated. I would really rather that everyone run around with infectious diseases and puss filled sores. That is far superior to a free vaccine and clean water. Oh waitâ€¦weâ€™re talking about MeritCare Sanford. It is only proper to complain, even if what they are doing is truely great.

It is not a matter of whether vaccination is good or bad. It is a matter of quid pro quo and medical ethics. Yes vaccinations should be offered for 3rd world areas. For free, not for any price. According to your statement, you have no problems withholding clean water from those who refuse medical care? Nice.

That is a pretty shallow analysis of my remarks. If this was not a dead thread, I would post more but it is a moot point now.

I guess using well thought out terms like “puss filled sores” (which by the way is spelled pus) offered the opportunity of analysis that was equally as deep. Fact of the matter is, the article specifically quotes the plan for coercive action.
