    So then lets take that money and use some of it for these people so they can afford the training and get high paying, not low paying, NOT LOW PAYING, HIGH PAYING jobs. The key is training. Nobody working as janitors. Nobody working blue collar low paying jobs. There you go. Leave the lower paying jobs unfilled or for kids.

    No... The key is not subsidizing people who are able to work.

    And as an adult anyone is owed free training or education WHY??

    Sorry.... People are still responsible for themselves, whether they like to be or not.. you want training or school, work for it, save for it, get your own non-government funded or backed loan for it, etc....

    Let's take that money and use it to pay down the goddamn debt

    Plus let's move to fairy tale land. You can only teach someone who wants to learn. You can only give a job to someone who wants to work. Last everyone has to start somewhere. If everyone had a high paying job everyone would be getting paid nothing. There is a thing called inflation. And if everyone made the same amount of money, then inflation would be so high no one could afford much of anything.

    The largest, richest country in the world spends more on social programs than a whole bunch of smaller countries earn?

    Wow, that's shocking!

    In related news, The Koch brothers spend more on linen sheets than most Americans earn in a year. Remind me why this matters again?

    Now there's an idiotic stat. Our defense spending is bigger than 267 countries, all countries but China (or France..

    Debt obsession is for brainwashed dupes, and thanks for the cronyism World Depression
