If that's the case, then birth control should be just
as readily available.
You're wrong. Medicare does NOT pay for Viagra.

SSDI mental health claims are the FASTEST growing claims in the system. I know people in this system, it is easy and sickening.
Baby boomers contributed MORE funds to social security than ANY other generation. Yet their FUNDS have already been spent on other people by our government.
BTW The first baby boomer retired in 2007. The rest may not be able to retire at a modest age since the government will likely raise the retirement age.
How much does it cost for OUR social security dollars to fully maintain a person from age 25-75?
from 66+? This is not what social security was meant for, you don't retire from life at 25!
I am a feminist I take care of myself. Not sure that you qualify.
There should be a Democratic tea party wing, I would join in a heartbeat.
I'm a boomer and I won't be retiring at 65. All my supplemental retirement funds took a big hit a couple years back and I don't know for sure if they will ever fully recoup. I would have started socking extra away, but my hours got shaved and my salary frozen.

Did they use force or threat of force to acquire their wealth like the government does?
Absolutely. Are you completely ignorant of US labor history? Corporations used private "security firms" (and sometimes the national guard) to violently suppress efforts by workers to unionize and negotiate better working terms/conditions.

The threats are largely economic now, but at one time it was most definitely real physical violence that was threatened.

Why do YOU think most people pay their taxes? Because they honestly believe that the government is doing a good job and they're getting their money's worth? Most people pay their taxes because they are afraid of the consequences of refusing to do so. You know, wage garnishment, confiscation of assets, and being dragged off to jail at gun point. I know you're not stupid enough to really believe in "voluntary compliance." Not even the schmucks running the IRS really believe in that fairy tale. If they did, they wouldn't find it necessary to snatch the money from my check before I even see it.
BTW, anyone who says that "majority rule" is the proper way to run this country doesn't understand the Founder's stated intentions. The construction of the Constitution is supposed to protect minority populations (whether racial, ethnic, or political) from abuse by the majority. One could write a book about how majority rule has been perverted into a tool to suppress freedom in this country.
Read my entire post. It ain't JUST about majority rule. Our republic is more complex (and humane) than that. I don't know why you pay your taxes. If it's only because your are afraid of being locked up, then I would suppose that you only pay your bills for the same reason. Perhaps you only accept responsibility for raising any children you have for fear of being charged with neglect.

Personally, I understand the concept of responsibility--as it applies both personally and socially (which does not make me a socialist). Many others do as well.

I'm guessing you are a male?
In my experience it takes two.
And there is no truly "safe" time of the month. You been using that line?
Just keep it in your pants and there's no problem.
you are correct on me being male and it does take two.

However, women do have the ultimate control over getting pregnant. Unless a guy is going to rape a woman, he isn't having sex without her consent.

And yes I mis-typed, I should have typed "safer"... any adult should know there is no 100% "safe" time of the month to have unprotected sex.

So, they went to their house and put a gun to their head and forced them to work in labor camps?

In reality, it is you who are ignorant of history. Of course everything you know is from a government school textbook.

You are wrong and stand corrected. Medicare pays for Viagra because it treats erectile disfunction, a medical condition that is most likely not a choice. And the point made was that nothing is free.

ED is just as normal as pregnancy...that's what happens when you are an old fart. I agree 100% with Gary.
