    why mention it unless there is envy? I couldn't care less how someone else pays for college as long as I am not forced to do it.

    I just tire of the constant whining on this board I see from an extremist group of lefties

    When will you get it through your head than nobody here envies you? Nobody wants what you claim to have. This is a matter of public policy and a difference of opinion about public policy.

    You are like the conceited immature girl who whines "don't hate me because I am beautiful". Its a compliment to yourself while playing the victim at the same time. Its sad and its pathetic.

    You made a claim that I believe even you admit was false. The only options in your mind are pretending it's true, which it isn't, or being envious? You don't make any room for reason or truth as motives?

    No. You'll find people who are rich, poor, comfortable, who don't do crap-physically or mentally. You'll find people who are rich, poor, comfortable who work their asses off, physically or mentally.

    So your really are contending that I should love the rich so much that I don't even point out when people say lies in their favor? Otherwise I must just be envious? Has it ever occurred to you that if you are to the point where you won't even accept the truth being spoken about the rich that maybe it is your fetish, not other people's envy, that is distorting things?

    what truth? that some want the rich to pay more of their own bills? What part of being left alone don't you understand. I am not responsible for others being poor and I should not be charged to pull them out of poverty

    Oops, you said it again. We're talking about their parents paying their bills.
