    Nice dodge. If for whatever reason; say a tornado... you wind up up homeless and without food and shelter: assuming family and friends are in the same boat, wouldn't you like to have the ability to be "rescued" by free food and shelter until you got back up? OR should you just sit on your ruined lot and hope someone throws you a dollar...

    It's funny how guys on the right avoid the obvious.

    Oh - and you went to free public schools didn't you...

    Make everything from toy guns that spark, to flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark. It’s easy to see without looking too far, that not much is really sacred.

    The fact every state does it does not argue it's not slavery.

    No dodge at all. You just don't know how to address my answer.

    Public schools? Disaster relief?

    And what of "public assistance" in early America?

    Does anyone know precisely in what ways blacks, women and gays are "unequal"?
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Conversely what does not happen in exchange happens in slavery.

    The only modern phenomenon parallel to Slavery is Incarceration.

    What illogic? Explain--as if you could.

    I stand by my opinion. You've offered nothing to counter it.
