When the government supplies the safety net you have to a least call it socialism. You can also call it wasteful, ineffective and un-American. But do not call fair. That is just to much.


Pete,
Glad you are doing well financially, etc. I hope you pray daily that you don't get cancer, get struck on a car and become paralyzed, lose your job, etc. If that were to happen, I hope your church or family has a great oncologist, rehab therapist, etc. I never knew that churches provided such people with doctors.

If not, too bad. Just die. Great philosophy. But, I guess in your mind it is "fair". Can we at least call it fascism?
