    Maybe if I took a tact closer to yours here you would see. Can you provide for me any Military in the world that is not funded and cared for by the country in which they are in service to?



    Can you explain how you reconcile opposition to socialism while enjoying the very social programs you rally against? Oh wait. You can't. Here's a flag. Wave it a little while the adults talk.

    I take no handouts in my life, I work. Do you? As for adults talking, let me know when that happens, cause it sure ain't coming from you friend.


    Who pays for the military? I'll give you a clue. Initials are T.P.

    Are you a tax payer?


    Tearjerk response. When will you answer what I actually ask?

    Ad hominem response. When will you just admit your disdain for our military and move on to the topic.


    Here is a napkin with the American flag on it. I've used it to wipe my face after eating Pad Thai. Are you offended? Hopefully. Can you answer what I actually asked without resorting to rhetoric and 'America **** YEAH!' responses?

    Have you served anything in your short life on this planet Hautey, that didn't serve your immediate self interest?

    Do you understand the importance of morale in a military unit?
    Once again, your inability to read is apparent. Did I argue otherwise? No.

    How about you address my post for a change?

    He cannot help it because he views anything "socialist" as evil and bad.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I did address your post. Perhaps you should address mine.

    I am recovering from a flu now. That does not mean I don't have the flu or feel crappy. Now, I repeat the question: who has been saying the recession is over? I have not, you have not, most economists have not, most conservatives have not, most liberals have not. Who is saying it?

    Moderator's Warning:
    Let's cease with the attacks and stick to the topic at hand.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    We've been hearing for six months that the end is near.

    Is this going to be one o those perpetual recessions where it's on when it's in the Libbos's good and off when it's not?
