New Zealand is breeding a generation of Coke Heads
Submitted by Marcus on Fri, 2012-04-20 17:02
Not the type of Coke you may have been thinking of, but Coca Cola.
A New Zealand mother of eight children ranging in ages from 4 to 12 has been found in an inquest to have died from drinking too much Coca Cola. Amazing, but true.
Pathologist Dr Dan Mornin told the court Ms Harris' main cause of death was cardiac arrhythmia, but she also had severe hypokalemia - lack of potassium in the blood - probably relating to excessive consumption of soft-drink.
Reportedly drinking up to ten litres per day, all her teeth had been removed because they were rotting. Her partner said "The first thing she would do in the morning was have a drink of Coke and the last thing she would do in the day was have a drink of Coke by her bed." He told the court she had been unwell up to a year before her death, including vomiting six times a week.
One might leave the story at that. Another case of a welfare dependent no doubt funded to breed by the taxpayer, removing herself from the gene pool through the process of natural selection. A strange and tragic case of death by one of the few legal highs one can still get. Unfortunately her case is not unique to the western world. At least culturally she and her like belong to the type of brain dead state educated "yoof" grown to adults we all see to often hanging around fast food outlets wearing hoodies, listening to rap music and chewing gum. I have no doubt that these are one and the same breed of welfare dependent "chavs" who took part in the London riots last summer and believe they have a right to "other people's stuff", by force if necessary.
Not surprisingly her partner is now calling for Coca Cola to be pulled from the shelves, or at least adopt labels warning of the dangers it could do. "They're going to have to do something about the fact that they're obviously selling a product that's killing people," he said.
He also believes that the Coca Cola Company should compensate his family for their loss.
His family sadly belong to an entire generation stunted by a "something for nothing" culture, where "rights and responsibilities" never figure in the same sentence.
We see the result all around us dragging down the western world into bankruptcy and ruin. A state funded culture of irresponsibility, of entitlement and a lack of basic common sense. Freedom is tough. One must take responsibility for one’s own actions. It’s easy for such “white trash” to hide behind the nanny state and to demand protection from making simple everyday decisions most uneducated people have to the sense to realise.
However the modern state dictates that it’s simpler to live in a dumbed-down regulated society than to take a risk. But it’s high time the state cut such people free and let them try freedom again.
