Bravo...you've figured out that the system is a bit farshlumped. Welcome to the US of A where you can be irresponsible and never have to really pay for it financially.

I think we should look at it from a different angle. These have-nots that receive these subsidies(sp?) from the so called haves aren't able to enjoy a lot of the quality of life the same way us haves are able to. For example; when was the last time you heard one of these folks talk about going on a two week vacation and paying cash for the entire cost of the trip?

"Youre dad works sweeping the streets so he could pay off all of his debts to those people who want to sit on their dignity..." thats an almost verbatim quote from "Legend of Bagger Vance"

Do you want to be a dignified user or a "hard working red blooded American" (read Capitalist)?

As my Drill Sergeant liked to say "SUCK IT UP AND CARRY ON AIRMAN!!!"

Well, carrying on with an A.S. paid for in part by good ole Uncle Sam and working on finishing my education with my hard earned GI Bill.

God Bless.
