    Real People Died ... it's Verifiable and can be Fact-Checked ... how about assertion?
    Whenever you think of giving up, just think of all the people who would Love to see you FAIL

    Its origin has been embedded in this nationís consciousness since the Nat Turner revolt; a pathological fear that the oppressed will one day rise up and inflict vengeance upon the oppressor.

    I know it doesn't matter to those who consider bodies a bump in the road but real people are dying every day in Chicago. But, since they can't be exploited by the racists in our government they're ignored. All that can be fact-checked and verified and ignored.

    But, as long as you're here, Cigar, would you finally like to respond to my question about your comment that some people make a free-will choice to not work. Can we, taxpayers, make a free-will choice to not support their worthless asses?

    And we actually freed people in Iraq and Afghanistan. All Obama's deficit spending does is take AWAY the freedoms of the people.
    I sit beside the fire and think
    Of people long ago
    And people who will see a world
    That I shall never know

    Long term we didn't free anyone in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    Nation building should only be done after an unconditional surrender won through total war.

    The last I checked ... In Illinois ... you have to have had a Job in order to get Unemployment. So if your state is different, maybe you should be calling your State Rep,

    Are you lying again or are you just incredibly stupid? How do people who have never held a job collect unemployment in your corrupt state? Unemployment isn't even the major form of welfare. Ever heard of SSI, affectionately known amongst deadbeats as "crazy pay?"

    Now, for the fifteenth or so time, do you want to answer the question or would you prefer to keep tap dancing with your ass hanging out of your pants. If someone makes a free-will choice to not work can taxpayers make a free-will choice to not support his lazy ass. It's a simple question, Cigar, even for you. Answer or just crawl back into your mother's basement and pout.

    A deaf man, a blind man, and a mentally ill man are drinking at a bar.
    "Good grief, Chuck, but a guy just came in who looks just like Jesus. Are you Jesus, mister?" The stranger laid his hand on the man's shoulder and said, "Open your ears and hear."
    "Good grief, Chuck, I can hear, I can hear."
    "Do you really look like Jesus, Mister," Chuck asked? The stranger again laid his hand on a should and said, "Open your eyes and see."
    "Oh, I can see. Chuck, Cigar, I can see."
    The man who looked like Jesus reached for Cigar's shoulder and Cigar fell to the floor screaming, "Don't touch me, don't touch me, I'm on permanent disability."

    What happened in the Eurozone is exactly the formula we are mixing.

    The leveraging of debt is twice as high as our average.
