So LET me get this straight? I work 5 to 6 days a week, 70 to 80 hours. And I'm being greedy for wanting to keep more of my OWN INCOME?
Boy, you have no idea of what selfishness is.
GREED and SELFISHNESS is displayed by those that WANT to REACH INTO MY pocket so they can have what they want. To have the government COERCE me to
give up a higher portion of my INCOME under the THREAT OF A GUN, OR PRISON time, for things I use to pay for me and my family, and have it go to the
pockets of doctors,pharmacists, and hospitals...is not selfish.
don't complain that the younger generation does nothing but care about themselves. It is already starting to happen.
Why is it greed that people want to keep a portion of their income.
Do you think it would be okay, for me to WALK into your home, pick out things that I like and walk out? Let me guess... no you don't think it's
okay for me to do that right? It's your private PROPERTY, you worked to buy those things in your home...IS NOT YOUR INCOME ALSO YOUR PROPERTY, since
YOU WORKED FOR IT?
Complete and whole and equal opportunities for people, will I agree that people should keep what is theirs.
Huh? I don't' understand your point.
When there is no more discrimination of sex, religion, age, and sexual preference.
Now what are you taking about?
When there is no more good ol boys club that keep people out of jobs.
Yes, those are called UNIONS. Get rid of them.
When people are not unjustly arrested and prosecuted for the above mentioned.
Yes, so let's keep granting the STATE ever more POWER. Since they definitely are not a bunch of TASER happy, quick to shoot, jack-boot
group of thugs.
When families no longer have a parent abandoning them.
Can't help you out here, these are social and cultural influences.
When people can afford to go to college based on merit and not ability to pay.
Yes, get rid of affirmative action and racial quotas and alumni preferences. Then you'll have people who merit going to college attending.
When people of minorities are not told they are not going to amount to anything in school.
Well, then if this is a problem. Don't blame the market for this, PUBLIC schools are PUBLIC schools. The problem here ONCE again, is the
STATE BEING involved.
When people are not terminated based on disablility and getting hurt on the job.
Now what are you talking about? You think most of the layoffs have been ONLY on people with disabilities?
When people have access to the mental health care and crisis services they need to function.
People already have access to that. The MAJORITY of people in the UNITED STATES have insurance AND ARE OKAY with it.
When there is no more rampent undiagnosed mental illness.
Yes....there's NOT enough people dependent on legal not to mention illegal drugs. How many kids, in this country are prescribed Riddelen
for so much as being on sugar highs. Don't you think we have TOO many people being placed on DRUGS, by a DRUG HAPPY pharmaceutical industry...all to
happy to provide the solutions to YOUR PROBLEMS at the bottom of jar of pills.
When illegal drugs are completely eliminated.
Now you're talking about never never land....
Then, and only then, will I say your post rings true. Then that would mean that every American would have equal, unhindered access to employment and
education. And your statement that what I worked for is mine, will stand true.
So I take it that you have not been allowed to go to college even though you vastly intelligent, then you were not allowed to get the job
you were qualified to get because someone hired their buddy instead of you, then once you got the job, you were discriminated on because you had some
Sounds like a horrible COUNTRY to me...
I guess that's why PEOPLE are coming HERE to this place FROM all over the world to not get the opportunities in education in jobs and in
life...PEOPLE COME HERE to the U.S., because it is known as the LAND OF OPPRESSION.
Fact is, you may just well have at the expense of another, and you don't know it.
Seems to me that you want something ONLY If its payed for BY EVERYONE ELSE, and you don't even know it.
