    I think that's contributing more than ****.
    So paying some taxes with hand while accepting welfare with the other is suddenly contributing? If these people were contributing anything meaningful, and then we'd have more jobs in this country. They aren't even capable of self regulating, and this economy is the result of their failure.

    There won't be jobs until the most anti-business government in eighty years is gone.
    There are very useful entries about logical fallacies on wikipedia. I suggest you use them.

    Are you seriously comparing capitalism to communism?

    Rich people draw welfare? I never knew that.

    I did, try again. and since most of the comments are opinions and opinions are tied to the perspective and wisdom of the author, my points are relevant

    Some of the middle class and lower classes do it.
    Why do we hate the wealthier people, when everyone else does it?

    You do know that not all wealthy people get bailed out?
    Sweeping generalizations are horrid ways of forming policy.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
