I'd like to know who started this dumbing down. It seems to have started with the schools and the media. It seems the people perpetuated it by demanding less mental stimulation. Somewhere along the line, the "work ethic" was promoted as god. If we thought the job market was full of useless jobs, we were lazy communists. Country music, patriotism, and religion bloomed. We were masterfully programmed us to make us want to fight for our slavery.

Do you think that I, and people like myself, after they have worked hard and paid taxes for years, should be offered no help at all when circumstances change for the worse? If not, why not? If yes, what are you whining about?
YES if you have paid into a system YES you should of been entitled to benefits of that system. However I do have one question for you. Instead of using that savings to pay the bills would of it been better to fix the car so you could continue to work? I mean you knew you would eventually run out of money. You could of used the savings to fix the car and supplement your income.
I was fired from my job in January because my car broke down, and I needed a car to actually do the job, I was a delivery driver.
I am just saying...
