    What i find amusing about your constantly babbling is your attitude that the wealth of the nation is owned by the people collectively and that its wrong for the wealth to be used for any purpose other than to appease the masses.

    your advocacy of the massed mediocrity is as hilarious as it is idiotic

    But he never took that position at all. Why would you intentionally and purposely either outright lie or misrepresent what another poster stated?

    I find telling the truth to be a better pursuit than what dem elitists-or wannabe elitists do

    that is to pretend to sympathize with the unwashed masses in order to gain power and votes while in reality (and privately) looking down on them as simple minded children who need the vast wisdom of the dem elite to guide them and tell them what they need to do

    I find it interesting that you know claim to speak with one of the other welfare socialists on this board-that is clearly what he implied with his rants about the masses allowing the wealthy to keep what they have

It is TOO easy to get food assistance, and I have yet to read of "food need based" crime sprees/epidemics.
    Did I say they were stealing food? I didn't. Does it matter what they steal if some of the proceeds are used to buy food?

    People steal food none the less. If you've never seen someone walk into QT, hide a sandwich under their coat, then walk out, then you do indeed live a sheltered life.

    Anything to vilify the poor so you can buy that Mercedes for TD, Jr., with less guilt.
