The case of the 10-year-old girl who needed an immediate lung transplant brought organ donations to everyone’s attention.
The estimated population of the United States in 2013 is 315.1 million. Eighty-nine people per day die in auto accidents. About 2.5 million deaths will occur in 2013. Our life expectancy is 78.7 years. There should be no organ donation shortage with that many deaths per year.
At the final judgment you will receive a new, perfect body; the one you just left is useless to you or your relatives. Therefore there is no reason not to become an organ donor and give a better life, or a life, to some person in need of a organ or tissue transplant that your useless body can provide. You can become a donor at the Department of Motor Vehicles or online.
It is my opinion that we should all become organ donors. What do you think?
Chickens are a great source of meat and eggs all over the world. No government has the power to deny people the right to provide for themselves.
Sure, a rooster crows at dawn; what a beautiful sound it is. Who are these complainers who want to decide how we all should live our lives? Do they not have a life? They complain about everything – ballparks in their neighborhood, chickens, cat and dog pets, guns and many other things. Everything seems to disturb them!
Why do the majority of us citizens put up with local governments that seem to let these few set the stage for the rest of us to live by? What do you think?
Another group, possibly not fully sane, maintain that sports team names like Redskins, Warriors, Pirates, Cowboys and others are insulting to some ethnic or social group. Is Ireland going to sue Notre Dame because they are called the Fighting Irish?
