my point is that its fine with me if i get taxed. because, WHEN I NEED IT, IT WILL BE THERE....DUH.
They are. Sorry to say, but what does a leach do? It sucks the life-blood out of its victim. What is the life-blood of our society? Currency. Just as a leach sucks its host's most valuable resource, so do social leaches suck our most valuable resources.
what angers me is people who think everyone who is on assistance is a leech.
Look, I am all for charity, but I sure as hell don’t want to be "charitable" at gun point. Fine, they "need it." Whatever you say (there is a difference between wants and needs, BTW. They need food and water. They want money and more than a one room apartment for their family to live in.) There will always be private charities to make sure families are not out the street, temporarilly, just as there are now.
My point is that SOME PEOPLE NEED IT!! And, so, i will gladly pay into it, so long as when i need it its there
Heres an example for ya: My sister-in-laws husband died last year. They have 3 kids. He worked a good job, and they needed no assistance from the governement what so ever. He was killed by a drunk driver, who was single and uninsured. My SIL is 42 and hasnt worked in about 20 years. Now shes left alone with a 15 year old, a 9 year old and a 3 year old. Not only is dad gone, so is the income. All the bills are still there as well. (not to mention aprx $80,000 worth of medical.
Hmmm, should she quit whining and go get a job at Mcdonalds? What is she qualified to do? Or wait, according to YOUR philosophy, its her own fault for not getting an education while raising them kids, right???
I would love to see the condition our country would be in if everyone in the country who wasn't making enough to live comfortably on decreased the time they spent working down to part time, took out loans for education, and were trained for these higher paying jobs!!!
