I almost always order 2 years worth of contacts to get around the the silly yearly prescription requirement.


I usually wear mine longer then 2 weeks so they generally last me longer. Probably usually closer to 18 months between exams then a year. For whatever reason, probably what I could afford at the time, I only got 6 months last time.

No, I think she's right. By and large my take on the libertarians I've talked with is they are utopians not unlike 14 year olds in their thinking that it will just 'be cool and work' if you trust people to do the right thing when freed from the constraints of laws.

But we are seeing what happens when those with the money and power get control with little constraints. It does not end well for the little guy.

Laws and rules are necessary.

Laws and rules, yes, and don't forget sober regulation. Sober regulation is vital in a capitalist country.
