nah he just should’ve taken care of his teeth, information is out there for it to be prevented. and people pay a shit ton to go to medical and dental school so no one should get treatment for free. whatever.

And the heartless comment of the week award goes to…. *drumroll* 

wavesarewashingme for this comment above on a link I posted, "Man Dies From Toothache, Couldn’t Afford Meds"

<sarcasm> It was tagged “unpopular opinion” and with that, I guess it leaves said commenter off the hook, right? 

Hell no. Yeah, there’s information “out there” but it doesn’t mean someone has access to the information. And yes, people pay quite a bit to go to school in this country, as opposed to other countries with socialized medicine and subsidized education. And often, those countries are doing much better in economic and social indicators than the supposed greatest country on Earth.

I can’t get into the mind set that dismissed a human life with “whatever, no one should get shit for free.” And I hope you never have to deal with a tooth infection or other dental problem which can happen even if you brush your teeth twice daily. But if you do, whatever. I’m sure you’ll be able to survive. Or not. You know, whatever. People die all the time. It’s just, like, happens y’know?

Ooh, look, puppy gifs! </sarcasm>
