1. Disability and welfare are not a service paid into to receive the return that people get. I am not badmouthing social security or unemployment as
those aren't entitlements are they? No, you are receiving your own money back.
However, when people abuse the unemployment system as has been done in the past few years, it becomes an entitlement.
2. I named a person who has it worse off than 99% of the people in the United States. I believe that is a fair example. If you would like me to
provide more examples of people that are worse off than most, yet are still able to manage and survive, I could do that.
$500 to get your tests done. Great. How often are these tests? Are you saying it is impossible to make the money needed to cover said medical expenses
in time? Do you know there is a such thing as free clinics and free hospitals?
You probably did, but it would be INCONVENIENT to have to travel, live near, or burden yourself with the idea of going to these places when you can
easily just collect a check and go somewhere close by. Back in the day, people didn't have a problem moving their location to better their situation
and their chances of survival, but today that is off the table for most people.
3. The S hasn't hit the fan yet has it? So therefore you do what you can until it does, and you use the time to prepare for what you can. If you have
an ailment, you do what you need to do to ensure you survive with that ailment when things aren't available for you. If you don't take that time,
YOU DIE. I have no problem with people dying because people die every day. Everyone dies. Harsh but true reality. Either you take responsibility for
your own survival and the hand you were given, or you accept the ultimatum. It really is that simple.
A. There are many medications and alternates to medications that can be procured at home or online in bulk. There are ways to make it happen.
B. The only people that require electricity to live are those who are on life support. There are mechanical alternatives to nearly all procedures that
were done before the onset of widespread electricity.
C. You don't need land to garden. Buckets or bins will do just fine.
D. Once you start gardening, you will have food to preserve.
"When I was a tax payer"? So how do you live?
Contrary to popular modern belief, the green we call "money" is not necessary for survival. I live only on necessity. I am self employed to give me
enough money to pay what is needed and that is it. Everything else I provide for myself.
