I can also see the thinking of a person in this situation...  "There are so many people getting a free ride from the government ... and I've put so much into it by actually working for 30 years ... why shouldn't I be able to get my cut without having to worry about paying it back".

When you go to any mom and pop store, do you wonder if the clerk has health insurance, puts money into social security, medicare or even pay taxes. You would think that they do, that the owner has his employees on his books. But the truth is, a lot of them are paid under the table. The clerks are just happy to have a job and the owner, just as happy, with his profit margin.

Now multiply that by a factor that will swell their number into the millions. So many people not contributing and then drawing benefits when they get into trouble and here lies the problem, we find the spending on them going up and up and up.

Who is then to blame, the small business owner, the employee or the welfare system ?

        Your right regardless of whether your the President, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or the fry guy at McDonald's, we should all get just $8 an hour.  Cheers

          Yes comrade, I agree.

          And we need more cameras watching us to make sure everybody is obeying the rules.

          And bonuses for informing on your family members and neighbors when they say bad things about the government!

            Should a brain surgeon make the same as a bag boy?

            Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

            For a lead role in a cage?

              As long as the bag boy is the owner of Kroger, the largest supermarket chain in the U.S. and the world.   Wink

                      That will never happen, they take a solemn oath to smoosh the bread and break the eggs, and lose at least one item, usually the one you went to the store for in the first place.

                        Yea, the commies proposed such a thing,

                        then the ruling class took the lion's share for themselves.

                          Are you saying a Multi-Billionaire friend of the President rich guy like Warren Buffett should make the same as his secretary?
