<quoted text> Not too long ago wewent to WalMart. My wife I always grad a loose shopping cart and bring it into the store. When I got a cart it had a purse in it. I opened the purse and looked inside there was money ect. I found a drivers license. So we went to the service desk and borrowed a phone book. We found the number and called the person they werent home yet but smeone there gave us the cell phone number. We called that number and asked them if they had lost something? they came back and I gave them their purse. The gratefull woman offered me money but I refused to take it. Im glad I found it rather than some one who would steal it.
That happened to me once a long time ago. I took the groceries out of the cart and something caught my attention and I left my purse in the cart. When I got home I realized what I had done. I called Wal mart and they said some nice person found or noticed my purse and brought inside the store, service desk I guess. I was so relieved. Nothing was missing. I was so thankful! I had no idea who that person was but he restored my faith in humanity. Thank you whomever you are.

Your not really a nice human-bean are you.
Who pulled your chain Beautiful Billie? You see the difference between me and you is that I can tell a joke and laugh at myself and some people laugh with me, whereas they only laugh at you and the lies you continue to tell about me. You really are an evil human-potato aren't you? I did make a steal today, I bought my wife some nice gifts and put them on her credit card.

Your post would had been more plausible had you stopped at the first sentence.
As you have seen from some post earlier today and anonymous web sites does not exactly deter confessions.
Where do you draw the line. When someone recieves a so called free goverment benifit. items that they did not work for. things like unemployment benifits, welfare ,food stamps, agriculture subsudys and so on. Thats money the goverment robbed from someone else and gave to them. Why are those things not theft? Why are those things folks didnt work for somehow exempt from being ill gotten gains. Im not exactly a saint myself. Years ago When I got the well head gas it wasnt mine. it was indeed theft. no matter that it was just being burnt into the atmosphere and wasted by the oil company it was theirs to waste. the same when I boycotted the reveue office and didnt buy truck license. everyoneelse paid and I didnt it was indeed wrong. And Im shure that there was always something that happened to take those ill gotten gains away from me. I never got away with anything some where some how and in some way Karma evened the score.

Once again, you have proved what kind of evil person that you are. My wife and I share everything we have and have done so for more than forty years. I will continue to post rebuttals to your lies.

I draw the line at, you have a choice to live in this country and pay taxes and enjoy the benefits of those taxes, or you can choose to live in some other country.

And when the goverment plays Robin Hood its somehow not theft. Many folks thought Jessie james was great for playing robin hood. But the fact was he was a thieving criminal. I dont mind paying taxes for things like the roads & infrastructure. But to be forced to pay for unnecessairy wars and enable taking parasites to be paid more in wages & benifits than the producers is theft and its wrong no matter how you try & justify it. Im not enjoying the benifits. Im being punished for being a successful producer. And the parasite takers are being rewarded by the goverment stealing from me and those goverment funded takers produce nothing.

Do violence and crime have a cost to society? Of course they do!

Now ask yourself this...which society do you think will have the least violence and crime, the one with the social safety net or the one without?

As I said, you can keep on enjoying the benefits of the taxes you have paid being a self-proclaimed "successful producer" or you can choose to live elsewhere.

Ho does taxing Me(robbing) and then giving that money to someone who did not work for it benifit me or society. Millionaire farmers getting crop subsudy payments. Giving free food stamps that compete with my hard earned cash money at the grocery store. paying SSI and Medicade to folks who never worked enough to qualify for Regular Social Security. the so called social safety net you mention does nothing but reward folks who do the incorrect things and punish those who do the right things.

guess what I did this afternoon. I killed & processed a pig. Im sitting here and eating a home grown meal. fresh pork steaks, sweet potato & goats milk. All grown by us without one bit of goverment help or intervention. No middle men no taxes no regulation. that fact makes it taste even better.

"Medicaid to folks who never worked enough to qualify for Regular Social Security"

How about Medicaid to those individuals in nursing homes who give all their Social Security to the nursing facility and Medicaid pays besides that.

Working hard all your life paying taxes and in the end you need Medicaid and you think that it is a "reward folks who do the incorrect things".

I think not.

That's probably what I should have done, but I was too annoyed and I would have been rude about it. Sometimes I find it best to say nothing rather than to embarass or offend someone.

I guess Karma sent those coyotes to your place to eat your chickens and calves. Instead of spending money on traps, all you had to do was quit stealing gas.

I have no choice as to the amount they take from my check. I am a victim of theft.

No, let me make this as simple as I can for you people, you live in a country with a social safety net to combat poverty, to combat the cost of poverty on society,


Or would you prefer to live in a land of survival of the fittest and not be robbed VIA-income tax?

Bottom line- either way you pay.
