    ... do people ever pause to consider how massive of scale a country like the United States is? There are no "good presidents", only good time periods.

    A good president is someone who rides the wave while discharging the minimum of duties necessary to maintain its natural velocity. Time periods are good or bad because the American people are good or bad.

    We're going through a bad time period because special interests have knotted up society and bent it out of shape with its natural velocity.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

I can't blame anyone who hits retirement age and decides, "Hey, I might as well get what I can out of this lousy system I was forced to support for my entire working life."

    I may disagree with a ton of government programs, but as long as I am forced to pay taxes to support those programs, you can bet I'm going to squeeze every last legal benefit I can out of those programs. It's just common sense.
    Well then don't be surpised when you are called a hypocrite then. If the very system shouldn't be there, taking advantage of it is hypocritical. Sorry you don't like the truth.
