lily, if i pointed at the big orange thing that glows in the sky, and said "sun", would you disagree with me, just on principle?

::)

No.  I know jackshit about astronomy.

I might add that other langugaes have slightly different words for "sun," though. ;)

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhh

you need a couple of boyfreinds to mellow you out.  seem way to intense.

:D

Somehow, I don't think having a boy would make me more mellow. Fewer knots in my back, maybe, but not less intense. ;)

but a couple of them, you would be too worn out to be able to think straight, and build up a good logical argument.

one to massage the feet.  one the back, one the legs and bum.

close your eyes and say that wouldnt be a slice of heaven.

Breadboy, how do I know that you're thinking in moral terms?  Because of this: "'you should bear the financial burden and not expect the government to come to your aid way.' When should a person be held financially responsible for their health."  (BTW, all of the bolded phrases are moral phrases.)

Responsibility in the sense of obligation is only in the weakest sense moral, whereas in a fully moral sense it would have a mechanism for placing blame and perhaps a punishment. Itís somewhat similar to the difference between civil and criminal court.

Even if you assuming that your argument about its "weakest" sense is valid (which I don't), the context you placed "responsibility" in prevents it from existing in its "weakest" sense.

When economists ask economics questions and aren't thinking explicitly about morality, you see dry, technical terms like "cost-benefit analysis," "efficient use of resources," "assume costs," etc. 

Dryness and a technical nature do not indicate whether a given statement is in moral terms. Molinism, Epistemological Justification, etc. are very dry and technical, but are, or directly concern, moral statements.

You're shifting the scope.  I'm talking about a specific field -- not how "dry, technical terms" function in every field.

Secondly, this supports my contention that you're a philosophy major and that you're still thinking primarily in ethical terms.

One more time (and I already know what your answer is Iíd just like you to say it), is there any time when the government should let a person pay for his own medical care?

1) This isn't the question you asked before.

2) In order to answer the question the way you want me to, I'd have to tacitly accept your assumptions.  I don't agree with the implied premises, which is why I pointed you to the earlier posts in this thread.

3) My arguments about health care finance can be found here.
