Not complaining they got ahead by who they know, complaining they get farther ahead because of government regulations, tax laws, etc...
On that we will agree.
First off mediCARE is paid for out of your payroll taxes. Take a look at your paycheck, you will see the deduction there. So granny damn sure worked for it.
In a lot of cases she's got it through her deceased husband's Social Security benefits, because she was where she should have been.... AT HOME, not in the workforce
Second, you really are bitter, aren't you? You honestly think all birth defects are because of the mothers lack of self care during pregnancy?
Not at all. My birth defect is purely a genetic issue, as are most. However, many children today do suffer because of the poor choices their parents make before and during pregnancy.
Third, with the views you have towards the health and welfare of your fellow americans, I would assume you have no problem with abortion? Or are you saying those people who are found to be less healthy in the womb, their mothers should be forced to give birth (because to abort would be wrong) so the child can live desperate, painful, miserable lives? (because giving them aid would be wrong too).
I am against abortion in all cases except Rape and where the LIFE (not health) of the mother is in IMMEDIATE danger. Other than that the woman made a conscious decision to engage in the act that created the pregnancy and she should be required to deal with those consequences. If she cannot or does not want to deal with the child, she can always put it up for adoption.
Yeah, see, that's the wrong mentality. Those people who write your paycheck, they need you just as much as you need them. If it weren't for you, they wouldn't be making the money they make, now would they? You give them an honest days work, they need to give you an honest days pay.
If I wasn't doing the work they'd find someone else to do it, whether here in the US or elsewhere. That's the reality of the situation. Or they would find a way to mechanize my work. Ether way, I end up broke.
