Why?

Because you have some early childhood experience that defined you for life?

Because you have no will of your own?

You admit to being an animal?

Edit: To make myself clear, animals can be trained, humans can't.


Humans are animals Craig. I have no fear of heights and that could be because it wasn't indoctrinated into my brain at an early age. You know, like religious superstitious beliefs!

Did you mommy or daddy take you out onto a cable bridge at a very early age and hold you out over the edge of the bridge. Do you remember that when you get your rush?

Maybe ask burnsred about it?

Not when they are endowed with will and the human spirit that the human will serves.

Under those conditions, they are human.

Destroying the will of a human can turn them into an animal. Brainwashing is a good example of that.

Don't get me started on Social Security.

Really, all this Socialism is dependent on Capitalism.  Anti-Capitalist morons just don't get this.

I would love to get you started on something? This would be a good one but I'll let Craig have a shot at tearing you down first. Then if he does you will be obliged to shoot your mouth off and say lots of stupid things. So get started skank.

Don, do you get a hard-on when someone other than you disagrees with me?  Because that's creepy.

Are you a "Member" of Congress?

That's what they have mostly been saying for 30 years, while libertarians have been telling them it is programed to destroy our modern country.

FLASH ALERT!

People no longer die at an average age of 61!

People no longer save and invest for their retirement.

Grandma will soon have to be pushed over the cliff...

Not really, but tax increases on young working families are more likely than benefit cuts to Seniors... Although either one creates "political" problems that are only problems for politicians...

Because they want to remain in power, in "Office", they will keep lying to everyone. Tsk tsk.

I work at an assisted living facility as a med tech., or as I call it, "pill pusher."  It's a lot cheaper than a nursing home because our residents can still mostly take care of themselves.  We have children of elderly parents who lie to try to get their parents in our facility, claiming they don't need as much help as they actually do.  The worst is when they don't let us know their parents have a problem wandering off.  Our facility is not equipped to keep wanderers in.  We've had a few of these cases.  One lady I had to call 911 twice so the police could get her back.  She kept screaming that she had to get home to her mother, and nothing I said would keep her from leaving, and I was the only one working at the time (it's a small facility).  I somehow doubt her problem started when she was put in our facility.  Her family just didn't want to have to pay for a more expensive place for people who require more care.  And just think, the baby boomers will be entering assisted living facilities soon.
Shocked
