Describe what in detail? What do you want? Eye colour, hair colour, height? I said that in my line of work and the customers I deal with I see people all the time who live off of the system. Some of them are disabled and need the help but a lot of them are healthier and younger than I am, I have permanent injuries to one knee and a trapezium muscle which forced me to switch jobs. This is the reason that they will stay home and watch Jerry Springer and play video games all day: welfare benefit packages in California pay $35, 287. Don’t forget, this is tax free money. If you were working you would have to make around $50k to take that kind of money home. And they live in subsidized housing as well.<quoted text>
Really? Describe in detail all the people you see who want to be on government assistance for the free ride. Don't make things up. Describe actual people you know who are going for this free ride. Explain how much they make, where and how often they've looked for work, their finances and health issues. And how would you know all of these people?
Dictionary.com is wrong. It isn’t a logical phrase.<quoted text>
I was using your word-- encourage-- ironically. But you were too dense to see that. But you're also too dense to know that it does NOT take 'a living being' to encourage something. From dictionary.com :
"to promote, advance, or foster: Poverty often encourages crime"
Did you notice that Poverty, in the example, is not a living being?
Did you see that "to foster" is part of the definition?
Now, can a recession FOSTER the need for assistance, as I had said?
Apples and oranges TP. A “government” is made up of living beings. Government’s, it’s employees and administrators, do things all the time. A recession is an event. People may turn to crime because of their impoverished conditions. People could be facing hard economic problems because of the recession.<quoted text>
After just saying that only a living being can 'encourage' anything, you say what's above. Sam, you can't even keep your lies in order from one sentence to the next.
How can the government 'encourage' anything? It's not a living being..
If Buffett really supported higher taxes for the wealthy why does he use all the tax deductions that he can and owes the IRS over $1 million?<quoted text>
Buffett supports higher taxes on the rich. He supports changes that actually would hurt his own self-interests. He intends to have most of his wealth given away to good, non-political causes by the time he dies. The Waltons and the Koch's use their wealth mainly to further their own selfish agendas. There's no comparison.
