I could go on, but the list is endless, so I think you get my point. Its not that I hate you, I disagree with you. Hopefully, you can make that distinction.

    I seems some people don't want government, they want parents. Free education, free health care, food stamps, rent vouchers, utility assistance, earned income tax credit, free cell phones. What's next, cable?

    Regarding education and healthcare ... are you suggesting that poor folks who can't afford those should be denied access to them?

    No one is denied healthcare treatment and you should know that nor are they denied education although the liberal educators are making education more of an indoctrination. It does seem that Obama supporters aren't that bright.

    If I'm the one who's "not very bright," how come you're the one who answered a question I didn't ask?

    I did answer the question, everyone is entitled to get treatment for health problems and everyone gets an education.

    Regarding education and healthcare ... are you suggesting that poor folks who can't afford those should be denied access to them?
    All Americans have access to both. Obviously you need Barack Obama like all other Obama supporters looking for the nanny state while ignoring the benefits they already have.

    No, you did not answer the question I asked. Had I asked, 'do poor people have access to education and healthcare they can't afford,' then yes, you would have answered my question. Regretably, that was not what I asked.

    Which now introduces another question ... if I'm not very bright, what does your inability to understand my question say about you?

    Con is now scrambling for that random number hotkey. Kinda sad, as he forgot where it was.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Who are you to decide what someone else can afford and whether or not the services provided aren't enough? What you show is indeed you aren't too bright as you expect the Federal Govt. to do what you apparently cannot do for yourself, provide for personal responsibility issues. I answered your questions, no my problem that you don't like the answer.
