If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

There will always be a scale of economic viability, and at least 49% of us will be on the lower end of it. While "pulling yourself up by your bootstraps" is good advice on the individual level, it's meaningless when creating policy for a society of 350 million people.
