Sanders fails to mention that Denmark is remarkable for the work ethic of it's people. We can't say the same for our welfare recipients.

Bernie is not familiar with the term "work" so he could be mistaken for a other way of life.

What works for a small nation with an unusually strong work ethic will probably not work here. We are large and unwieldy, and we truly have lost much of our old sense of work ethic. I wish it were not so. I would like to see such a strong safety net, but you have to be able to trust your population of people. The frauds that people come up with here are absolutely incredible.

I don't do well getting judged, lots of negitivity. It probably comes from miserable angry old people. They need to go play bingo, they made enough of a mess of things.

Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, especially advertising, indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media.

not likely the person at The Retreat who judges my posts as SPAM can comprehend the meaning of what SPAM is. It is impressive they are able to opperate a computer a little bit.
