But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yeah, if you can't get a job and your saving have run out to the point that you have to go on the dole, it's always best to open a restaurant. Business licenses, equipment, building, insurance, inventory, advertising. He can come to a caring person like you to front the risk side of the business, as he has no money. It's obvious to me that you have a great deal of experience in all this. How many people have you personally fronted so far?

    You don't have to repeat yourself.
    We already know that everything you post about is, rich vs. poor.

    That shtick is old.

    Its not shtick to those that have any awareness that half the country is living in or near poverty thanks to supply side economics and deregulation.

    It certainly is a shtick.
    Every thread that has anything to do with welfare or reasonable adjustments there of, gets bombed with nonsensical posts of rich vs. poor/dem vs. rep, from you.

    It's a old, worn out and mostly off topic.

    Seeing how federal income taxes are only 40% of federal revenue it don't mean jack ****.

    The average tax cut we voted to give the rich is more than times on average the amount we pay anyone on welfare. That doesn't even include the cost of the military to expand and protect the riches of the wealthy.

    You think we invaded Iraq to provide more riches for the poor in this country???

    Great, you were poor.

    So you can't buy junk food.
    You can't buy luxury food.
    So you buy food that is in between? Who determines this? How would you go about enforcing such regulations?
    Booze? You serious? That is a legal product when you are over 21. If you do not want people buying such a thing, maybe you should reflect on your views on drugs. Booze is a legal drug, hate to break it to you. Fact of the matter is, it is a product that you can purchase at a grocery store.

    Empathy has everything to do with it. You just are pissed that someone else is spending our money on something that you would not spend on. Grow up past four please.
