181. Great point!
Excellent point. There's no safety net. That's demode for the I-hate-paying-taxes crowd. Let 'em starve. Fuck 'em. IGMFU (I Got Mine, F-U). It's their own fault. They're just lazy. They're just moochers. Screw 'em. Let 'em eat cake. Or catchup! Remember when reagan's OMB director, david stockman, reconfigured ketchup as a vegetable so they could suck more money out of schools and school lunch programs? Vile bastard!

There are so many people hanging on by a thread. As you said - one or two paychecks or one serious illness/injury away from utter disaster. So many people hanging on by the thread that their biggest asset, their house, has turned into - a mere thread.

I'm gonna be 55 in a month and a half. I've NEVER seen it this bad, for this many people, in this many ways, in this country.
