    Dumb and counterproductive... It's the same as asking when did you stop beating your wife, or as Bush said to Saddam, prove to us you don't have WMDs, or the classic it's his fault for not doing what I told him to do.

    There are only employed and unemployed records, nothing on parasites or sloths, and the last time I looked, 130 million were employed.

    those who think others have a duty to support them are parasites. Those who don't work but can are sloths.

    The wealthy aren't the producers. The middle class are the producers. What do you think the idle rich produces?

    Re: When did America start its downward spiral towards socialism/fascism?

    I don't claim to have any ideas about "when America started its downward spiral towards socialism/fascism," but the question itself is irresponsible. America has always been the home of the free and the brave, despite it being under laws, codes, and procedures. If you want absolute freedom, voice for anarchy.

    I am so sick of the ignorance. Do people remember the Japanese in California being rounded up during WWII with Japan? Did people not hide their German ethnicity during our war with Europeans? Do they remember the congressional hearings to invesitage communist ideas from celebrities, politicians, and businessmen during the Cold War? Today, Muslims are scrutinized during a war against their most zealous and people behave as if America has turned a new corner. As if America doesn't have a history of making itself aware of the enemy's people. Welcome to what ensures your security.

    Torture? Hundreds of thousands of Algerians publicly tortured by the self-righteous finger pointing French just 40 years ago and the world behaves as if we are the new Nazi Germany because of a few waterboarding cases? I guess Cold War spies and enemies were interrogated with wine and cheese. Oh, but if our few waterboarding casesmakesus "fascist" what does that make France and the rest of the clowns?

    Socialism? What the **** do you people think Social Security is? Free clinics? Food stamps?


    Pull your head out of your asses. The U.S. has been democratic/capitalist with a touch of socialism for a very long time. The problem people have is that they can't fathom a world outside Disneyland's borders so they assume they have it bad. Most Americans don't have a clue how good they have it.

    So much truth.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's only your opinion, not supported with facts.
