We are not given a good life or a bad life. We are given a life. It's up to us to make it good or bad!

I hope you never find yourself out of work my friend. Or crippled by an accident. Or too old to work.

Maybe professor's friends and family don't follow is same agenda of "get a job or starve". If he ever finds himself out of work, maybe he'll have some friends of family who will help him out.

But I'm sure someone with his attitude would refuse help and let himself and his family starve.

"Get A Job or Starve" refers to deadbeats who are able bodied and refuse to work! Instead bleed of the welfare system me & you fund for them their entire lives!

Ok then I agree with you there. If someone is able, but refuses work, they should starve. If someone is unable to work for one reason or another (injury, age, unemployment, or whatever), we should provide help. The problem is how do you determine that? There are plenty of ways to buck the system. In my opinion, people who simply refuse to work are a small minority of all the people who receive some form of public aid.

As far as your comment about not being given a good or bad life, that's not true. Let's face it, Prince Charles never had to worry about unemployment benefits or health care - and he got all this simply by being born into the right family.

It's easier to climb out of a 3 foot hole than it is to climb out of a 100 foot hole - especially in the U.S.- where the wealthiest few own all the ropes and ladders.

Let's play a game of Monopoly - except in this game, I start out with 95% of the property and 95% of the money. Add to that some rules to help ensure that I keep my wealth. Do you think you'll ever get out of the hole you're in? It's possible, but not very likely.

Money don't make a life good. You could be the richest person in the world, and do too bad choices of your own, you can still have a bad life!

You don't need an education to drive a truck. You need common sense. I have seen educated people attempt driving a truck. You should see the ugly messes they get themselves in! LOL!
