    I agree we do live in a nation of morons, morons that obediently parrot what their propaganda masters tell them and this being at least the 5th thread on this topic in the past 15 minuets, shows that perfectly.

    This the top story at fox or something? :cuckoo:

    And, do check the dates this began.

    another little goody that most don't know about is that your check to ATT includes a bit of $ to finance the Spanish American War. Its possible they finally dropped this but I doubt it. It was included as recently as the 90s.

    Actually, this just reiterates Gramp's point so why are you calling him a moron when you just supplied him with supporting evidence?

    Whether the free shit be phones, food, healthcare, money, housing, or whatever else that is for personal wants and needs, it is wrong.... but with more and more people (and yes, corporations get free shit too, but they don't vote) getting free shit, they will continue to vote for those who will continue to give them free shit.. all while they and their masters keep vilifying and stealing from those who pay to provide the free shit

    This is a path to ever increasing tyranny

    .

    I don't look at people like this as "morons".

    We have a couple of generations of Americans now that have been raised in broken households, without fathers, with people telling them every day that they're victims and have no chance outside of what the government gives them. They've had standards lowered so as to not hurt their feelings, they've been apologized for, they've been given medals for just showing up. They've been told that they are owed something regardless of whether they actually earned it.

    All pretty much since birth.

    When you're told all of that since birth, when you're raised in a family and community environment that absolutely endorses and amplifies and assumes it, you're going to believe it as much as you believe anything. It doesn't make you stupid, it makes you conditioned.
