I know what you mean, my brother-in-law is on of those freeloaders. If I knew a process that was not so time consuming,, I would turn him in without even blinking, he screwed me over more than words can describe....I tried to be the bigger person....he lost his wife in 2007, my wife and I tried to move in and help him out, but he was hell bent on keeping his lifestyle as is, while our life style suffered (I was working around the clock) Finally we just moved and dumped it all in his lap since he could not be reasoned with, but this is much how congress is today....no one will give an inch and those of us that actually work are expected to pay for everyone else. How is this fair? When I get an answer to this question I may be more approachable....I gave up alot to move here...and I have not gotten anything back but problems and bullshit. I am further in-debt than when I moved here. Those that can afford to pay more need to do so, because someday they may need some help...hell we will all need some help some day. STOP THE CLASS WARFARE...LEAST U BECOME A ACCIDENTAL CAUSALITY. This is your only warning....if things don't change and I catch u dumb asses on the streets....lets just say my life insurance is current.....cause as long as my life sucks...your is in jeopardy...i didn't do anything to deserve this....but believe me you did....fix this shit..before you all suffer the same fate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
not sure if you mean me or not. My and my family's medical is taken care of.....but that's about all we get....we still have co-pays and such....then the rest of life creeps in....food(which is over inflated), rent (since you need almost perfect credit to buy a home anymore) insurance, gas, medical , dental, etc. etc. how can 38-40K a year afford a dream?? this is the question I want congress and the president to answer. Why cant they give up any of their salary? Why is the sacrifice always left up to the working folk??? D.C. needs to answer this one.
in retrospect: When my father and a lot of people started smoking the price was approximately $0.25/ a pack. That was in 1963 or so. I understand inflation and all of that but you cant justify $10/A PACK and gasoline is less than $5/gallon....you as a people and a government cant tell me that tobacco (a plant that can be grown) is worth more than a element like oil that has to be processes and refined....SOMEONE IS FULL OF SHIT HERE and it must be exposed....Tobacco can be replenished alot easier than oil...so why pay more for one than the other? This is what leads one like to me to say....SCREW WASHINGTON....WHAT MAKES CADILLAC A BETTER AUTOMOBILE THAN FORD? THEY ARE BOTH MADE IN USA, BUT SOME DICKHEAD IN D.C. SAYS ONE IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER...DID THIS DICKHEAD HAVE ANY....AND I MEAN ANY FIELD EXPERIENCE WITH FORD OR GM? OR DID HE JUST LIKE ONE BODY STYLE OVER ANOTHER? Oh AND BEFORE ITS ASKED WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO I HAVE?? How ABOUT OVER 20 YEARS IN AUTOMOTIVE/LIGHT-truck/MEDIUM-turck/HEAVY TRUCK???? Not enough?? most presidents dont have that much driving experience.....but I'm just a layman....STOP FUCKING THE PEOPLE OR THE PEOPLE WILL KILL YOU...its that simple....make this country a better place or we will destroy you....what more incentive do you need????????????????????????????????????????????
How many of you government "i'm better than you" types know how to change a tire? or preform any type of repairs on your cars or homes? I bet not many, tho these are the types of people you intend to screw over in one way or another(BECAUSE YOU CANT BE ASKED TO GIVE UP ANY OF YOUR $$$$$)....so in the end where does that leave you? THINK BEFORE YOU ACT!!!!!
The tax payers bailed out the banks, AIG, GM, ETC....but what thanks are the taxpayers that bailed them out get?(How many different stupid fees can we make up to post profits??) I FOR ONE WELCOME ANARCHY IF THIS IS WHAT WE GET FOR OUR BAIL-OUT EFFORTS.....BURN IT ALL!!!!.....RAPE, PILLAGE, PLUNDER, We the people are not appreciated so why even bother....sell some crack...some kids.....who cares....we got to get paid...one way or the other, because we are the ones "putting in work" not these busters in government, they don't even know what a "honest days work" is..I think I'll go puke now and look at what I need to do to get out of this so called superpower of bullshit. I'm ashamed to admit I am american.
The more you screw the people the more we will call for revolt. Think for a few here, you want to raise taxes, censor the internet.....what will you the government allow us the working simple folks to have...the states want to close the loopholes on RYO cigarettes, throttle our bandwidth...etc. But oh no....we cant tax those that have enough money to afford the $10.00 a pack price on manufactured cigarettes or Automobiles they dont need, BMW's, Lexus's, Etc. I for one work as one of the people that make sure the trash is picked up, the kids get to school, the ambulance gets to those in need but no I cant afford to buy a pack of Marlboro's each day...you better all stop and check yourselves before someone like me comes to help you and decides to jack your wallet instead. THINK PEOPLE! AT THIS RATE IT WILL GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER! THINK BEFORE YOU ARE LEFT ALONG-SIDE THE ROAD TO STINK!
