    We call ourselves an entitlement society. But what we really are is an embezzlement society.

    A new study found that debt per household went up $12,984 in the last 14 months.

    Is the government borrowing that $12,984 to put into your pocket? Even if you're at the poverty line, I doubt you're getting $12,984 in benefits. And bare in mind that this debt is on top of the taxes that you already pay.

    So where is the money going? Basically to desk jockeys who aren't doing a damn thing on your behalf.

    America is the classic example of an "entitlement society."

    The wealthier you are, the more "entitled" you become!

    Pubs and their cronies screwed the whole world- 10 million unemployed cost money, and Pubs are doing everything they can to ruin the recovery, dupes. That's about 9% of growth in debt, almost all due to Pubs, and their DEPRESSION.

    Whatever the government is giving away these days, I'll take it. Send it on over to my house. I want some of those trips the GSA employees were getting. I want the free cell phones. I want, I want, I want and I demand the government pay for it by taxing that nearly 50% of the population that pay no federal taxes at all.

    I wish I spoke jibberish but I don't. Seriously, I never even understand what the f you're babbling about. The only thing I can tell for sure is that you are an uber liberal f-tard.

    Change the channel, dittoheads. You have about 4 BS talking points, and a million BS stories.

    This is simpleton logic. I'm sure you've been explained how you're wrong in the past and you would rather hold to your dogma; so I won't waste my breath.
