There are many people who simply do NOT have the capacity to carry out a job above entry-level position. What are these people supposed to do? If they are not paid enough to live on they will become homeless.

You are not entitled to food, water, housing, clothing, healthcare, etc etc. If you want it, earn it.


But that would be to logical? Actually going out and earning something? Why work when there are those who can get for free due to entitlements~

Having pride for one self apparently missed some of the younger generations.

Stealing is the opposite of wanting things handed to you.


he doesn't know that man ... look at his posts and registration date ViperChili Registered: 14/4/11 ... well that explains it all ... come back in a couple of years when you have some actual experience in these matters ... like Ima listen to some mainstream propaganda junkie making wild claims about subjects he has no knowledge of.

Then that is their problem for not being motivated enough to make the necessary changes in their life.

No one is entitled to anything. If they refuse to adapt, then let them become homeless.

You could do a hypothetical workup.

Let's say a company has 20 office locations, each with 100 employees. 2000 employees total.

Each employee has a stapler on their desk. Damn that is a nice stapler. The company wouldn't notice if I just took that sweet swingline home to live at my house. I could just grab another one from the supply closet.

That stapler cost the company $10.

2000 swingline coveting employees.

$20,000.

Chump change?

Maybe if people stopped stealing, they could pay employees better, and give them some better medical coverage.

Or maybe they could have offered their services at a more competitive price, but instead they lose too much business to their competition and now 2000 people are out of work.

Lol.

I must ask: Do you choose to work with children because you want to be around your intellectual equals?

Exactly what points have you made in this thread other than pathetically trying to attack me?

Hint: None.

I have yet to see you make a logical argument in this thread. Do you have the necessary skills to conjure up a constructive thought, or do you plan on continuing making personal attacks? You defend the social welfare programs and yet have not identified whether or not you should earn things in life, or have it handed to you?

This seems illogical in itself. What makes anyone entitled to anything?

How about the air you breath?
The light you see?
How about these thoughts and ideas I place online?

Some things are just there, for everyone and everything.

Everyone has the ability to promote themselves to the next step in life. Nothing is preventing a person from obtaining work exp, much less added skills to market themselves. Those who may have the excuse of say, handicapped, then we agree there.

But the average joe, has every tool at his/her disposal, what they do with those tools is entirely up to them. There is no reason someone should obtain the fruits of another mans labor, all because they were to lazy to achieve greatness for themselves.

Your all taking like the monetary system is not a scam to start with ... you want to know why your all wrong ... FIAT CURRENCY.

Fiat Currency: money without intrinsic value


An intrinsic theory of value (also called theory of objective value) is any theory of value in economics which holds that the value of an object, good or service, is intrinsic or contained in the item itself. Most such theories look to the process of producing an item, and the costs involved in that process, as a measure of the item's intrinsic value.

When you "steal" something your stealing something that doesn't actually have an intrinsic value so your not actually stealing anything your just taking it.

Stealing is stealing, no matter how one rationalizes it. And due losses will not come out of the corporation's, nor shareholders', nor uncle sam's bottom line; it will come out of you and your co-workers paychecks, bonuses, pensions etc. They have ways of making sure of that.

That being said, theft is rampant in many workplaces. I worked at a place where a low-wage shipping room clerk got caught returning a $35 electric drill, but failed to notify the supervisor of the "borrowing". He was fired. Same supervisor saw a low-wage woman grabbing a $10 plastic trash can blowing across the parking lot and putting it in her vehicle. He tried to fire her but couldn't make the case stick.

But a "professional staff" member was observed carrying a computer from another office, hiding it behind her office furniture and waiting. A meeting was held and it was decided that she would be confronted. She boo-hooed and claimed her co-workers set her up "because they were jealous of her position" LOL. She got away with caught red-handed!!!

The policy was supposed to be notify security personnel, and let them do surveillance and catch her leaving the property with computer in vehicle.

It's not who you know.....but who you ......

Those and other bad incidents did not make me want to steal. It's part of holding yourself to a higher standard IMO.

That's my point. No one is entitled to anything. Taking pride in oneself, and earning what is wanted is what should be accomplished. Power perceived, is power achieved.

If it makes you feel better, I go to sleep every night with a smile knowing that people like you struggle. You deserve every hardship that comes your way. Some people make something of themselves, others whine about life not being fair. You are the latter.

Not unnerving in any manner.

Apparently one of the key lessons in life were never taught in their University establishments. Such sad little minds.
