    Ok. And your approach is to just literally murder the poor.

    This is a fun game. Let's make up more things about each other.

    What did I make up? Look, I am genuinely concerned that this growing cast of malcontents, screaming for high wage, in jobs that don't demand high wage are going to soon enough be out of a job, and become MORE discontented with their lot in life...Either you want to discuss rationally what could be done now about this, or you want to bring that on...Which is it?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Because if it did, then it smacks of you saying what is akin to since it was going to happen anyway that we should just not talk about it....Good God...

    Do you have a robot wheelchair that can come pick me up and carry me to table #24? All this not working is hard on the joints.

    Please insert your federal entitlement card, sir, as we may only grant special privileges to federally recognized minorities.
