I can remember Chris Rock doing a bit about how we didn’t need Gun Control, just bullet control. If we charged $1000 bucks a bullet, the homicide rate would definitely slow down. They’d really have to think, is that idiot I hate really worth a thousand buck to me? Maybe I’ll just slap him around. Chris Rock was hysterical with this bit and it’s stayed with me and to this day makes me chuckle.
So when I went to get my prescription for an inhaled steroid filled and found without health insurance it’s $210 a month I thought, cripes… Then I remembered Chris Rock’s bit about bullets being so expensive and I thought jeeze, I do wish they would reverse the prices on those two things… “I do wish bullets cost thousands… and pills cost pennies.”
