@HolyGod: I do see what you're saying, but I think you`ve "overgeneralized" a tad too much.

The 18 Year old who collects his auto insurance MUST NOW love ALL FORMS of insurance and insurance companies?
He cannot complain about health insurance, because his car insurance was so good to him?

Just because someone benefits from ONE aspect of the Feds, doesn`t mean they give away their right to complain about OTHER aspects, correct?

It`s not like the Gov`t is one solid, indivisible unit! There`s 100s of parts to it! @CrakrJak likes some of them, doesn`t like others, just like everyone else, including YOU! And me.

Correct?
(I try to not say "right" anymore since some folks use that word as an insult... )

"That's wrongful?"

When did I say it is wrongful? I have no problem with crakr being on welfare. The "wrongful" part to me is his constant insistent that we don`t need the federal government in our lives when he in fact lives off a federal government program.

So it would be like your 18 year old crashing his car, his insurance paying for it completely, my insurance going up, and him bitching constantly about how bad insurance companies suck and we don`t need them. THAT is wrongful in my opinion.

"That business you think you made? you didn't build that!"

I didn`t build it by myself. Absolutely.

"So if I crash my car, and collect the insurance, I can only collect as much as I`ve paid over the years? Is that how it goes?"

Not sure what point you think you are making. I know how insurance works.

I said social security is a form of welfare.

Here is how wikipedia defines welfare:

"Welfare is the provision of a minimal level of well-being and social support for all citizens, sometimes referred to as public aid."

You don`t think social security qualifies?

@HolyGod: That business you think you made? you didn't build that! Someone else did...

So if I crash my car, and collect the insurance, I can only collect as much as I`ve paid over the years? Is that how it goes?

So an 18 year old who wrecks his $30K car? He only get to collect $2K because that`s all he`s paid into it? Otherwise he`s taking money from someone else, and that`s wrongful?

Your logic escapes me dude...

"But you have to keep trying to insult me and say I'm on welfare."

It isn`t an insult. Welfare isn`t a dirty word to me the way it is to you.

The government forces people to pay ss traxes. They put the money into the system and redistribute it to people on social security. You aren`t living off the money you put in. My guess is that ran out a long time ago. You are living off of other people`s tax money.

Social Security is a form of welfare. Spin it however you want you live off the government teat. Get a job or live off the government teat. I don`t care which. However every time you bitch about the government I`m going to remind you who takes care of you.
