    So we're talking about welfare? It's probably a smaller percentage of spending than corporate welfare.

    If we're busy turning out young people who are uneducated and unemployable then I guess we better be ready to support them. Or they'll be shooting us to get something to eat.

    That's not what my comment means. You have solidified my suspicion that the American education system has, in fact, failed you.

    The right-wing media spreads so much misinformation about safety net programs, their huge senior audience won't know what hit them if/when the GOP rolls out their own death panels.

    That's right Grandma, all you have to do is go online and download a PDF file, fill it out and send it back... shouldn't be too hard for you. Then we'll send you your Health Coupons... Don't send it all in one place.

    I am one of those people? how do you get to that inference and accusation (who are those people that I am allegedly one of?) from a simple insertion of a far side cartoon? You wanted a definition for all the countries of the world following us, I gave you one.. humorously.. lemmings.
