    Spare me the sob story from fatass first worlders.
    So you are part of the 47% Romney talked about.

    The point is we could be arming people who will turn out to be our enemies.

    Yes, I am! They told me about death and taxes, but thus far the latter has been no object. I think that I may escape that "inevitability" entirely. I could get food stamps and an Obama phone, but I haven't because I don't really need it. I think about doing so just to rub it in. I'd tell people that I fill my bathtub with Obama money and roll about in it each month.

    But you do get a check every month from the gov't for living expenses. How old are you?

    I don't get any government check. It's my 1200/mo (savings and investment) and I ask nothing of the government. What I should do is get a food stamp card, sell the 'stamps' for 66%, fill the tub with the cash, roll around it for a while and then go spend your money on hookers and booze. I think it'd be great, but it just requires a bit much effort.

    I think you are in violation of a specific in-thread warning, so I suggest that you do not pursue this avenue any longer.

    How is it that you get $1,200 each month. From what source?

    Private sources and none of your business.

    You are the one who brought it up originally, i.e., your personal finances.

    That was prior to the in-thread warning. I answer your badgering, which is in violation of that warning, at my own peril.

    I did not see the in-thread warning until you pointed it out. You stated earlier that you think the US should be sending their money overseas instead of spending it here. Being part of the 47%, how do you justify sending other peoples' taxpayer money overseas?
