    the stuff you were talking about is based on government coercion
    The government is putting people to death for not providing food stamps? Wow.

    Or the government is not putting people to death who committed violent crimes and the money from our penal system could go to support our aging population.

    On the contrary. I have degrees in political science with a minor in sociology. I studied this academically. Then there are years of observation, study, reading, associating with my fellow Americans of all classes and incomes.

    So you stand corrected Turtle. I know well of what I speak.

    And even if I did not, as an American citizen, I as all American citizens have a perfect right to assert my views in order to impact public policy. No matter how much some wish it were otherwise.

    You whining "BS" seems to be your all purpose trump card which means "I really have no intelligent argument against that so this will have to do". On the playground it was "I know you are but what am I".

    so you want to play "list my CV" game with me? I deny you have any clue about the wealthy or their children.

    sociology-a vague understanding of the obvious. Its up there with art history in terms of useful topics to study

    the government has raided those who refused to pay taxes. people died. the government has killed people with unpopular beliefs. Why did the feds shoot randy weaver's unarmed wife in the head or his son in the back? in reality because he wouldn't serve as a rat. it was a trumped up gun charge. what federal violations of law justified an armed attack on the nutty Davidians? remember MOVE in Philly? they got bombed

    Which in your eyes makes me all the more dangerous when I advocate policies that you hate and despise because of your own self interest and personal financial status which you place above the nation.

    Either way, you end up making lame excuses for trust fund babies who simply had the good fortune of birth and fighting government taxation on their good fortune.

    Like the late great Jackie Gleason used to say as he left the stage..... "how sweet it is".
