Awesome! FDR rocks man!
I totally did NOT want to come back to work yesterday after the long vacation. I dragged my butt out of bed and came in though. I wish we had this
2nd bill of rights! I could just quit my job and happily stay home in my free house with my free food and my free healthcare. Do you think they
would give me a free car too? That would be totally great! Yeah!
What? You want to quit your job too? Hey wait…all my neighbors said they want to quit their jobs too….uh oh. Crap! Who’s going to be left
to pay for everyone’s free houses and free food? Um…where does that government money come from anyway? Oh yeah the magic money tree in the
It takes just two seconds of common sense to realize that anybody who believes that these so called rights are a good idea is a total moron.
Maybe common sense just doesn’t work for you. Let’s try looking at this a different way.
There’s a cart. You can sit in it and ride or you can pull it. The rights that we all hold so dear, that you seem to equate to the rights for
free stuff, is the right to be a free person and control your own destiny.
Freedom says that, if you would like, you can choose to allow your wife, kids, mother, etc to get in the cart you are pulling. You can even pull a
couple people in this country who can’t do for themselves and have no family to pull them. Not too many though…you can only pull so many. The
moment you make it a “right“ to get on that cart and 100 people climb on, you are going to hurt your back. Then YOU will get on the cart too.
Who’s left pulling the cart? Who? WHO?!!! (a whisper in the peanut gallery says “nobody”?) RIGHT!!! NOBODY WILL BE PULLING THE DAMN
Don’t you friggin’ get it?! Why can you understand common sense?
Who would pull the cart once everyone is sitting on the cart? “Uh….baaaa duhh…. Gee Wally….why ain’t da cart movin’ no more?” “I
dunno kid…let’s just sit here for a while and maybe it will start movin’ again.”
How can I pay for a house for me and my family and also 20 other families?
I just want to be free and left alone to help my own family. How can I be so selfish to just let others fail? Because they won’t!!!!
Faced with death they will get their lazy friggin’ asses off the cart and start help pulling. They few people who actually need help or are
someone’s ward (wife, kids, elderly parents, invalid cousin, whatever) will be on the cart. But you can NEVER EVER make that a right or everything
comes to a complete stop. I’m sure the OP would say, “oh no the government would MAKE all able bodied people work. They would assign them their
guaranteed job. They would determine how much they would get paid and it wouldn’t be much because everyone needs these basic rights.” Am I
wrong? Isn’t that would you would say OP? Well guess what…. Guess what’s missing there. IT’S CALLED FRIGGIN’ FREEDOM YOU @#$%^&*#$%
I have lost all hope in America. Threads like this have proven to me that the OP and people like the OP are dumber than a box of rocks and I wish
you would just sit down and shut the hell up because you have ZERO COMMON SENSE!!!! NONE! If you can’t understand the basic logic outlined above
then there is absolutely no hope for you.
