    How are we defining benefit?

    This SHOULD be a hard question to answer.

    uh no one has said that there are no benefits to the rich. what has been said is that the rich do not have benefits in proportion to their share of the tax burden and those at the bottom get tons of benefits for which they pay nothing

    understand??

    Lol .. I suppose so .. if you consider making objective observations based on evidence mind reading .. somehow if a mind reader told me that that is how he/she came up with his/her predictions (i.e. via good observation) .. I would feel a little ripped off

    well we can start with direct benefits and indirect benefits

    direct benefits can be anything from government handouts such as SSI to the coast guard saving you when your boat runs around to a governmental firefighting unit stopping a california wildfire from destroying your home to indirect benefits such as the CDC thwarting an outbreak before it hits your community to the fact that our Nukes may deter from country from thinking about invading us.

    Your rants are consistent only in how pathetically reasoned they are

    you claim you hate the GOP because of the Teaparty

    You've been a far lefty since day one on this board

    Lawyers are a scourge on this country...the people and govt included out of greed...everyone knows it turtle doesnt even have to be said...any adult knows how lawyers milk this country, corporations and dont try they do it for the common good, spare me.. As far as my inconsistencies...thats a figment of your hate of the working class imagination...from the day I hit this forum in march the lionshare of your posts are about the Parasitic seniors in social security and medicare...the parasitic poor....you insinuate everyone that isnt rich is a lazy parasite, You have railed on public workers are parasites...you believe that walmart workers should pay for the own healthcare and save for thier retirement....sure they can do that on 10 bucks an hour....
    Now as far as my always being a liberal...I could ask you to prove that...but instead Ill tell you this...If I were always a liberal...I like it alot better than being around you and your buddies....and Im a guy that doesnt need social security or medicare..I can pay my own way and afford cadillac health insurance...but I know theres millions that cant...and im willing to pay a little more for that...Id still have more than i needed...but some people...never have enough

    Good advice .. the posts to seem to show a trend of envying the poor and their hardship .. its almost like some people wish they could be poor and it makes them angry that they likely could not handle actually being poor .. almost like a disservice was done to them when they were brought up in wealth .. wait a minute, a disservice was may have actually been done to them .. hmm interesting
