But, I would say ... quite to the contrary, it proves it can be done ... and, if I can do it, anybody can. They simply choose not to. And, THAT, does not compute in your fantasy world.

    So, if it were up to me, "world would starve to death, be wage slaves forever, and be a much bigger ish hole than it already is....". Interesting ... how do you know that to be true about me? Big on assumptions ... short on facts. You claim to be open minded ... but that's only when it fits neatly into your little paradigm. You have no tolerance for anything that violates YOUR perception of the world.
    No but if you made an outlandish comment like the other dude did saying "my single mother raised a family of her + three kids on minimum wage" I would call it the obvious bs it is.

    I know that because your a libertarian and its true of all of you. Its how you have been programmed by the institutions and Glenn beck to think.

    I have no tolerance for bigots or ppl that refuse to help their fellow man. Your right.

    I proved it with numbers. You refuted it by arguing with Merriam Webster and saying "I was alive" I bet you were a member of the Jon birch society at some point in your pitiful life.

    You are taking a single comment, and trying to spread it like mayonnaise over everything. I'm curious ... what was the welfare package like 20 years ago? The unemployment package? The government healthcare package? The government food package? Government education packages?

    If I accept - and, believe me, I don't - that wages have stagnated, none of that changes how difficult it is to move forward.

    However, let's talk about your statement .... if I go to https://www.census.gov/hhes/www/pove.../thresh93.html, I see that the inflation adjusted poverty level for a family of three in 1993 was $11,631, and that in 2013 it was $18,751. While I recognize that ain't a heck of a lot of money, it DOES put the lie to your statement. In addition, you fail to consider the significant increase in hand-outs, which, most assuredly, also have a value.

    Now, since you brought it up, let's look at those in the 80-90% range. File:United States Income Distribution 1967-2003.svg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia shows us that the average income in the 80-90% increased from $75,000 (80% in 1993) to $125,000 (90% in 2005)

    So, while your rhetoric sounds nice, and makes everyone feel good, it simply doesn't pass the truth test.
    Their has been a decrease in these programs, not increase.

    Poverty rates in america do not adjust for cost of living since the late 60s, only for inflation. Which is insane.

    It is your bs that does not pass the truth or logic or any other test. Have you ever seen a poor person?

    YOU WOULD HAVE TO PROVE that the TOP 5% (who pay more than HALF THE INCOME TAXES) use more government services than the other 95%


    You just missed the point entirely

    THE MILITARY DOES NOT REBUILD homes so the insurance issue is not applicable

    ask any policeman in a big city


    WHERE ARE MORE POLICE RESOURCES allocated

    POOR neighborhoods or rich ones

    how about fire departments

    and guess who the government spends more money on INCARCERATING
    Who does sales tax effect the most? Who pays the largest percentage of income in sales tax? OK stfu then.

    Got it. You're not interested in truthful discussion ... you just want a forum from which to spew your filth and hatred.

    Good luck to you.

    Well why don't you elaborate instead of making silly comments? How much did your family make? How many ppl were their? Simple things like that prove your statements... Or disprove... What EV's...
