    It doesn't apply. Skateboarding isn't an integral part of society like families are.

    Re: Should Daycare Be Subsidized

    Can those that don't have/want any kids get some love? We already subsidize the hell out of people having children. When am I going to get my "helping keep Earth's population in control" tax credit.

    That's nonsense of which you should not partake.

    Because we don't want to pay for your kids.

    That's why.

    I'm a white-collar worker. There's no lack of me out there that are more than willing to not have kids, or wait until we're prepared to do so.

    However, the underlying point is that I'm calling bullcrap on the people you claim are unable to afford day care.

    So is eating. Should all food be free?

    I'm sorry if I offended you. The comment was not really intended to be a commentary on Somalia as it is today.

    Did someone hack your account? I never expected you to take this position.

    Free? No, probably not. Subsidized to some extent? Yes.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
