    No, the fact that everyone believes their work is worth more than it really is, so they use the government to force private enterprise to overpay them makes them parasites.

    Obviously not. Did you really have to ask?
    Those who support and vote for Parasite Nation are parasites... ignorant or Socialist (the previous two explanations would suffice for Socialists).
    The Clintons are what happens...

    I've never understood the mindset that some people have: "I should be paid more." If one doesn't like what they're being paid, they need to find a new job. Or work up into management. I've been self-employed most of my life. The few times I wasn't? I was always promoted because that's what I wanted.

    My mom's "boyfriend" (she's 85, he's 84) has groused for YEARS about how little he made at Sunbeam Corporation. He so resents the 35 years he spent there. Good Lord! They offered him promotions. He didn't want them. Wanted to do his job, punch the clock and not accept any responsibility. Those employees are a dime a dozen. And an awful lot of employees think exactly the way he does. "Hey! Just let me do my job and go home." That's not the way to succeed. That's the way to stay at a company for 35 years as a machine operator and complain about being underpaid.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Every day since Obama was re-elected, I've read more and more deranged comments by those who supported the white guy in this last election. Often the words I read sound like someone could use professional mental counselling . . . A President who has failed to take away guns from Americans, a President who has been more successful in leading the "War on Terror", a President who has saved large corporations from going under, a President who has not forced the IRS into churches that preach against him, a President who has attempted to compromise with the most obstinate Congress in history -- yet some continue to rant and rave about the Marxist secret Muslim living in the White House -- it ain't rational folks.

    Step back, take a breath or two, and THINK (you are required to use facts)
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    What I do for a living really is none of your business... except it has had me travel the world fairly extensively, and not just travel, but live in a host of socialist nations. I've spent half my life on both sides of the pond. I don't speak about Parasite Nation out of theory, but experience... and Parasite Nation is a nightmare... but here is the catch...

    When you know how to navigate through Parasite Nation... they lock out competition for you with their bureaucracy!!!
    It favors those who are wealthy... and keeps those down that Parasite Nation claims they want to assist.
    When it takes 2 to 7-years and 40 agencies to get something fairly straight forward done...you kill a lot of competition.

    These experiences are partially why I turned from Socialist to Conservative, plus the stark difference doing business outside the US... though US states differ, and some US states are as hostile as the worst EU states; namely CA & FL.

    It is a world of trade offs. The field I work in I could likely get paid more if I were more willing to travel (though I am compensated well). I don't have a lot of interest in travelling because I have young family. I'd rather be home more during these younger years. I accept that I may limit my income some during this time, and I sure as hell am not going to expect my employer to pay me more because of the decisions I have made.

    It is sad that America has embraced the attitude "I don't have to work for it, I just have to ask for it." That attitude is not going to help America out in the long run.

    People pay you for things? I hope it isn't for your writing.

    Papa John's CEO: Obamacare likely to raise costs, employee's hours being cut

    Why can't people just do what the President wants of them? What good is it if you are the most powerful person in the world and yet people have the right to oppose you. Something must be done to fix this injustice. When someone wants to do what is right for the country, then opposition should stop and everyone should get with the pogram.

    Jet... you rarely have anything worth debating to say. If your posts were a beer... it would have ZERO calories. There is nothing there.
    You throw out barbs... which OK..is fun, but you add almost nothing to the debate.

    What is it about Parasite Nation you disagree with?
    How about starting there.
    Where has Parasite Nation succeeded?

    Jet... this is a debate forum... and we had an election. Parasite Nation won.
    For my life it has ZERO impact. None. But I love America, and have seen what socialism has done to destroy the ambition and souls of people.
    How it has corrupted them. I find it sad, tragic and the road to hell.
    You may like the fact there is a party that breeds Parasitic behavior. You may enjoy being one and supporting Parasite Nation.

    Does Greece, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, or Italy have any impact at all of your opinion of the danger of Parasite Nations?
    Does the Kanuckistani Healthkare system make you pause and think about the failures of Parasite Nation?

    Now... the next time you post... try to extend you thought process beyond a meaningless one liner.
    How about engaging your brain and engaging in debate?
