Do you own your residence and are you receiving a school voucher for your children?

I sure do own a few houses and pay for some kids public education somewhere.

I did a very quick search through the Constitution and did not find any reference to taking care of the elderly at the expense of the young.

I did not know that for something to be unconstitutional, the exact phrase must be in the constitution.

This relates to the previous comment. When you establish your own business, you can determine the rules

I'm sure if a restaurant charged different rates based on color because some races statistically make less than others heads would be chopped off. So businesses do not get to make all the rules they want.

We can't have decent schools, but you'll get 10% at Walmart. WTF!

This appears to be an attempt at sensationalism with no basis in fact. As 2old4bs pointed out, these issues have nothing in common


Your probably correct, I got a little carried away!

You have provided the Enrich and Amuse part, but I do not see much on the Educate

If people are so blind to think that pricing based on someone's age alone is correct, I need to do a lot more educating.

I don't take any of the posts so far personally, no one has out right attacked anyone in this thread yet. I'm enjoying the debate thus far and amazed at the point of view. I'm sure there are a lot of lurkers itching to post.
