    Wait... pause the game for a second. Are you seriously using the site walmartfacts.com as a source?

    Poly-skilled autodidact. Doing whatever pays the best at the time. Right now my wife is supporting me so that I can harass propagandists full time. But I am available if you need help. With just about anything. Anything honest and forthright anyway. What EXACTLY do YOU do all day.

    Actually i'm a far right anarchist, but if you go far enough to the right you come up on the rich raping the poor, just like they do in every conservative paradise. And rape just pisses me off. So...

    I wish I was rich so I could help more people.
    I do not hate rich people.

    Also, sending $$$ to causes does not solve the problem, because it does not look at the root of the problem. For example, while giving $$$ to a homeless shelter is a great thing and I encourage people to do so, it does not solve the root cause of homelessness. Donating money addresses the symptoms but not the cause.

    Wisconsin Firefighters Join Protest With Sleep-In

    "When protests in Madison, Wisconsin broke out with Republican Governor Scott Walker's budget proposal, state firefighters immediately backed the public sector workers, who would be stripped of collective bargaining rights in the bill.

    Never mind the firefighters, along with cops and state troopers, were exempt from the union busting legislation. They have been protesting since day one with their self described working "brothers and sisters" in the public sector.

    Monday night, around sixty men and women marched from Madison's Fire Station #1 to the capitol with blankets, pillows and plenty of snacks to spend the night with fellow protesters on the hard marble floor of Wisconsin's capitol.

    "We just couldn't stand by and let this happen to our brothers and sisters," Mahlon Mitchell, State President of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin (PFFW), said. "We are firefighters, we respond to emergencies, and we are responding to an emergency of the middle class."

    Police union official urges officers to sleep among protesters, keep Capitol open

    "On Friday, the head of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association called on the governor to keep the Capitol open to overnight campers, and even urged members to join them.

    "As has been reported in the media, the protesters are cleaning up after themselves and have not caused any problems," said WPPA Executive Director Jim Palmer, who urged the governor "not do anything to increase the risk to officers and the public."
    Going one step further, Palmer suggested fellow officers come to the Capitol Friday night to sleep among the protesters."

    Re: Walker takes broad swipe at public employee unions

    How does a lefty earn enough to support a household on one income? And yes I was a libertarian before it was co-opted by the current CINO nonsense. I still strongly support the second amendment, and actually believe people don't appreciate or grow from what is just given to them. I just don't like the obvious desire to create a plutocracy in this country. You practise civil law, yet deny that wealth utilizes a disproportionate percentage of the courts. You own a farm. Do you accept subsidies. You're a general partner in an investment firm, but cannot accept the concept of a relatively finite money supply, and steadfastly refuse to acknowledge any possibility of excessive personal ownership of said supply. B your preferred model, eventually there will be no more money available for YOU to own. Then a bigger, richer fish will come and take your money away. Because there can be only one richest man in the world. That IS the end result of capitalism as you see it.

    Now instead of conversing, challenging anything i've said on any rational basis, you'll now just call me a silly liberal and feel superior. You can't see how annoying that is, can you?
