No, you are wrong on many levels. It is NOT my responsibility to care for you regardless of what you have done. It is your families responsibility. You know, the people who actually care about you.
I don't need the government to take care of me, or anyone for that matter. I don't expect you to. I do expect my family too because i would be doing the same for them.
Learn some independence. I don't owe you anything other than what i want to owe you.edit on 24-11-2012 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)

I always wondered about realistic scenarios for gun confiscation. If they cause or exploit starvation and government dependence how long until we see food for guns programs? Do these already exist? I have not looked. Not that it would be so widespread as to account for all guns but I would imagine a lot of starving people would trade in their guns, especially if ammo and such are unaffordable or unavailable in some type of SHTF scenario. Something to consider.

You miss my point as well. If I invested money with a contract that states I can only collect when at a certain age or under certain conditions and then when that time occurs the shareholders say no, we got where we are off your money but we don't want to pay you so tough I could go to court. The citizenry of this country are the shareholders. Social Security and Medicare are the contracts that money has been taken from us for. Give us back our money and we will leave you alone. We just want what we PAYED for. In case you have not noticed Social Security and Medicare are seperate taxes.

Good thing about Civil Wars. I personally wouldnt mind one, let guns decide who is right.
I didnt choose to live any where. I was born into this country. You know .. EARTH. Ill defend this country and the people with my life, unless my freedoms begin to vanish to the point i can no longer bear it.
However, i did not choose to live in this country. I appeared here, out of a woman. I OWN the land in which i pay for and its property. Telling me to get out? Yeah, try it, youll be looking at the end of a barrel. Smile, and wait for flash.
You are not entitled to a single penny of my money that i have earned. What so ever. Go get a job, cant get a job? Good thing about family? Dont have a family? You live and you die ... it just seems this is the way your going to go, unless of course, your neighbors help.edit on 24-11-2012 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)edit on 24-11-2012 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)

well that would certainly put an end to the overpopulation problem wouldnt it..
End food stamps, welfare,
Right - we should just round them up into concentration camps and let them starve to death. Better yet, let's gas them, it will be quicker - but it will cost some money. [/sarcasm]
8 billion people and counting...and the most growth is in the welfare population.
I often wonder why people that cannot afford to feed themselves continue to reproduce to children that they cannot feed.

Hmmm...so many people unsatisfied with the American government, yet they are using American property on American soil using an American internet connection to complain about the American government which supports their American right to freedom of speech just so it can hear them complain about how unfair America is.
Yep, sounds totally justified. Here's an idea: move to another country. If you don't like it here, leave.
