    Civil War

    "Someone should remind the gun nuts that their reason for civil war is the same reason that we had the last civil war: slavery."

    It will be about slavery next time also when the socialist now in power take the biggest percentage of working people's money to redistribute to those who won't work.

    • There are no socialists in power in the US and only a small fraction of people in any country who will not work. Voluntarily not working is not a choice non-wealthy People can make. This is true in all countries, including the two or three socialist ones.

      • "Voluntarily not working is not a choice non-wealthy People can make."

        You're just make this stuff up, right? It certainly isn't true as I see the folks every day in my practice who have figured out how not to work. I am regularly petitioned to grant patient's confirmation statements attesting to their disabilities when they don't qualify for the same. Disability is the new permanent "welfare". I am not talking about those who honestly qualify for disability, so don't go there.

        I am talking about the thousands of Federal, military and state disability payments handed out each month to those who have won another form of lotto. Anecdotal evidence given upon request. These folks are non-wealthy people "Voluntarily not working by choice".

      • want to talk about voluntarily not working. Just take a job at a chain tax preparation company from Jan 1 thru mid Feb. might change your outlook on the choices non-wealthy people make.

    • By the way, the culture that causes you to be focused on people who do not want to work is the old slave culture, when overseers needed to force slaveS to work in order to steal their labor from them.

    • Jp, your focus on people who wont work might be based on your own outlook. Knowing that if you could 'get away' with not working, you would not work makes you think that everyone else would not work as well.

      • I started working for a neighbor farmer when I was 12 years old, After high school I went to work for a railroad for 18 years took a buyout and then went to work for a store chain as field support supervisor. I saved as much money as possible,put my kids through college,paid off all debts and then retired at 54.
        I earned the right to not work for no one but myself and family.
        Nearly half the people in the US are receiving government assistant(many have no option) that money comes from people paying taxes,People who work.
        here,if you want to help those poor souls just write a check and send to the US treasury, remember to send 10x the amount to pay the administration fees of the government.
