I would accept your claims are genuine.

But the obvious position libertarians are going to take is they will call you a lazy malingerer. That's simply the philosophy, compard to mine.

But I accept your claims with some caution, even though I will give you the benefit of the doubt. The ultimate decision will be made by government over a period of time and if you're not genuine then hopefully your ass will be booted off the dole.

Society can't afford to have it any other way. It only works my way. I can claim it as my way, even though it's my government's way.


The judges love when socialists tell people what libertarians think.  It's like Hitler explaining Mother Teresa.  Here's you video, well earned ...

Are you saying charging too much for something isn't greed?
Charging "too much" only works if the government has granted you a monopoly or special advantages. The competition that is inherent to free markets prevents people from charging "too much".

I am on SSI, Food Stamps and Housing Assistance.  And I qualify for a lot more.  And I hate it.  I'd rather the church help me.  The first time I needed surgery, I went to the church for help.  The minister told me I should go to the Government because he said, "That's what they're there for."  So I went on Medical Assistance for just that surgery.  Then my plan was to go back to work, but I needed more surgery. 

I guess some of you would rather I be dead.

I don't want you dead.  You're just another greedy socialist.

And the idea is that we'd have more money if the government wasn't already soaking us.  The church would have more.

Do you know it was churches who squawked the loudest when social security was implemented?  They said it was their job.

That government takes almost 15% of our paycheck to fund it clearly impacts people's ability to contribute to their church and other charities

I don't even know what that means.  If someone charges more than you feel it's worth, you won't buy it.

Does "too much" mean more than you want to pay?

You're a terrible fake libertarian.

There's also no such thing as price gauging for the same reason.  A deal is struck only when a producer and a consumer strike a deal.  Whatever that price is would be the fair price

All three of the people at your site.  How did you possibly not get that?

Capitalism without compassion is greed.


Socialist rhetoric.

My job as a capitalist is to provide consumers what they want better than other companies can.  What is the difference between meeting their needs and "compassion" anyway?

If I offer the best product at the best price, why do I need to be all emotional about it too?  What does that accomplish?

No, unfortunately many people are caught in the same dilemma. Government interference has made jobs more scarce than they should be, medical care (and everything else) more expensive, and catastrophic insurance polices unavailable.

The "progressive" solution is more government interference, and many people think that's the only way out of the government created dilemma.

Libertarians believe more government interference will make things worse and that the only real solution is to free the economy and shrink the government.

Welcome to Libertarian's Forum where no amount of agreement goes unpunished.

I'm agreeing with you, so why are you giving me a hard time?


Don is a socialist, not a libertarian

tomline, I think the pig meant price 'gouging' and not price 'guaging'. I don't know the term price 'gauging' so it's probably a typo.

just in case the pig is trying to make up new shit?

Bravo!  A spell check by the troll.  Finally, you've found something to say that's actually useful.

The judges have awarded you a gold star.  Wear it proudly



Later, finger painting!
