I never said moving stuff wasn't important. I just said it takes the brain of a chimp to do it. If a person was smart enough to get a job that required more skill and paid better, he would do so.<quoted text>
That's exactly what I do: move things from one place to another. How do you think your groceries got to the grocery store? They grew them there? How do you think your tools got to the hardware store? They made them there? How do you think gasoline got to the gas pumps? A gasoline machine?
Yes, truck drivers move things. Through rain, through snow, through fog, through night, we move things.
And it's your apparent ignorance that leads you to believe because blue collar workers actually do work, they are incapable of the "thinky" stuff. How Sarah Palin of you.
The government, as the collective voice and arm of the people, can help more people than any one person can individually. That is why people gather together to form communities.<quoted text>
So you like to help people? Why do you need government for you to help people? You're so brilliant that you can't figure out a way to do that on your own?
There you go again with your wild exaggerations and insistence on telling other people what they think. I have never heard a liberal say any of those things. The only person I have heard say those things is you.<quoted text>
Well..... that's the cradle-to-grave mentality. You can't do anything without government. You need government to tell you how to eat, what to watch on television, what to plant in your front yard, what to keep your thermostat at in the summer and winter, what kind of vehicle you should drive, and as you posted, how to "help" people.
See, we working people do all that on our own. We don't need government to tell us any of these things. It's something that you probably never heard of in your Socialist dilemma, it's called common sense. When you sign up to be a Cradle-to-Graver, they take the common sense part out of your brain. That's why you can't live without your precious federal government.
You better get to sleep. You have a busy day ahead of you doing things that I can't be bothered with.
