    Pardon the diatribe.
    The greedy people are the ones wanting free handouts at the expense of others.

    It wasn't too long ago that Bill Clinton told Democrats that the reason they lost badly in 1994 was because they didn't pass healthcare reform.....Now that it passed in one form or another in both chambers of Congress,one Democrat switched parties and 3 more are polling so badly they decide to quit rather than lose.

    But the government we'll keep our incomes the same while reducing our productivity. Don't worry, they know what they're doing!

    Yes, the Democrats are monolithically disgusting.

    That you're proud of this speaks volumes.

    You support Democrats.

    That means you're a socialist. A socialist in denial, perhaps, but a socialist none the less.

    Oh.

    You're a socialist.

    Now that we've got that cleared up, can you explain why you want everyone to wear slave collars?

    Which means you support fascism, since "free" markets are government controlled.

    Free markets are not government controlled.

    Good for you.

    Most of us haymakers don't owe society anything. It's what being adult is all about.
