My standard has been posted here; since you conveniently missed it, I'll do so again (and 1000 more times, if necessary). Nix to the mentally disturbes, children, felons, abusive spouses. If you think that the foergoing are not more irresponsible than the general populace, then you are simply ignorant or simply simple. All may be created equal, but people's subsequent actions differentiate between them. You keep on trotting out that old tired slippery slope domino theory; "If we let them do the rational and reasonable thing today, who knows where it may lead?" What part of "general welfare" do you not understand?
