I think, in the perfect world, which this isn't....what a person earns is their money, to do with what they wish. many times people wish to share
their belongings with those they care for. this is a good thing for the human spirit. when you throw in laws, and customs to force people to give
what is theirs to the point that they no longer have much to share then well, this isn't good for the human spirit. what you are describing is part
of the dependency trap. arrange things so that we are all dependent on others for something, detail (or dictate) what each person's commitments and
responsiblities will be in this dependant relationship and patiently wait for all heck to break lose because soon the people will begin to resent
being forced to give that which they would have naturally shared if only the situation was a little different.
The US is susposed to be the land of the free, in order for that to be, we need to be as independant as we can posibly be. Free to share our
resources as we see fit, not to have laws or society and "tradition" dictate that to us. When it comes to the relationships between men and women,
tradition fosters that dependancy. and, historicallly speaking, those who couldn't or wouldn't follow tradition were left out in the cold...with
women and children usually ending up with the short end of the stick. this is a historical fact, women who left their husbands condemned their
children to a life a proverty so they would stay in the abusive relationships. It was a better alternative. women at one time couldn't sign any
contracts.....they needed a man to do that for them. wages were paid to the husband, not the women.....their employment opportunities we slim and
designed to keep them financially dependant on another (got to preserve tradition, right?) well, in any dependant relationship, there's kind of a
quirk going on. the one who susposedly is enjoying all the power finds himself in actuality in about the same boat as the one he has power over. so,
while the women were working hard to keep home and children for her husband, well, he ended up finding that he was working harder and harder to pay
for their needs. it's only natural that they would start to resent what was being taken from them. just as we are beginning to resent all this
foreign aid that we have to send around the world, just as we resent having to pay the social services programs to help the poor, just as employers
are beginning to resent having to pay the high bill for health insurance, ect. we like the perks of having our servants, but tab for them is a
killer!! historically speaking we've always had our servents, our free or next to free labor, we need this labor alive so, some means have to be
found to keep them that way. this is expensive, and we don't like the cost, and round and round we go!! and considering the time and energy
demanded, a stay at home housewife and mother is about the cheapest labor you can find. throw in the biblical "be submissive in all things"
mentality, and well, it's a bargain that can't be found anywhere else. like I said, historically speaking, women have been getting the short end of
the stick for a long time. It seems that some would have women just to go back to accepting that short stick (for the sake of society!!!). let's
just go back to having our little servant society, were children are taught at home what absolute authority is so they aren't questioning the rulers
throughout their lives. where men nd women or slaves work for absolute bosses and masters for however long it takes for them to earn their living,
under whatever conditions the employer choses to provide. and where he kings has absolute authority over everyone. it was all one big
system....designed to enslave...men, women, and children. Have the women forever subservient to the men, so the children can have a good example at
an early age how to be subservient to the ruling elite. breed slaves, not free independant thinkers!
by the way, I don't dislike bush because he's a threat to the social service system....I dislike him because he's a threat to america!! If your
gonna fight a danged war, fight the danged war, don't pussy foot around, give them four months warning to prepare, leave our borders wide open so
they can send sabataors here to blow us up, send in less troops that are needed, fail to provide those troops with what they need to do the job,
declare yourself free from any laws and then to top it off act like the whole venture is just some money making scheme designed to enrich you
buddies!!! I hear the pentagon is a few billion short??? what happened to all the billions spent already?? we'll never know because the pentagon's
books are unauditable! then the dems are threatening to refuse to fund the Iraq war if they get power over he congress......
I have a son home on leave now, then he leaves for a nice 300 day vacation. to Iraq.....I am just wondering if the government is giving him a one way
ticket only.....will the crazy polywogs in washington at least pay for his ticket home??
the social service net couldn't do this much damage in my lifetime!! it's just gradually leading us into a nation of slaves all dependant on our
government for our livelihood....socialism.
Bush and his fellow polywogs (dems included), in just the short time he's been president has about assured us that there will be no government to
take care of anything!
