Holy crap what a pack of losers...
For all of you "re-distributors" out there that embrace the socialist dogma of the new Democrat (New Socialist) Party of Hillary and Obama:
"Heard a story once about a female college student yelling at her well off Father for making too much money and not "giving" it away. Now this woman came from a very Liberal Minded school where her economic professors basically said that there should be a fair "re-distribution" of wealth.
Her father asked his daughter if she had good grade. She said that she earned a 4.0 in every subject. The Father then asked about her best friend, Sally and what kinda grades she got. Sally got a 2.0 gpa.
So the father mentioned to his daughter, why dont you give Sally 1.0 of your 4.0 gpa then you'll both have be equal and have a 3.0 gpa. The Daughter ranted and raved how she worked so hard and devoted so much time to her grades where Sally partied and didn't study.
The Daughter thought that was insane and crazy how she should just give her grades to a person who did nothing, the Father replied "welcome to the Republican Party"!"
I guess you have to ask yourself, are you the daughter, or are you Sally?
This would obviously be the typical retort of rightwing idealists when responding to questions about wellfare systems. The thought that other people might take advantage of your hard work must really get to you.
Im proud that I live in a country where we at least acknowledge that not all people are born under the same star. That its not because "Sally" partied that she got a 2.0 gpa. But maybe she got a 2.0 gpa, because she is dyslexic, doesnt have a supportive background, etc...
Your retort would obviously be to: "Deal with it" In wich case I would say
Im glad that I live in a country where the contribution of my fellow danes can help a lot of individuals, that have no to little means to help themselves. Are there people who will abuse this system. Sure there are. But of the people receiving help, the scammers are in the minority.
On another note:
You can keep on bantering about things that happened 60 years ago all you like, but in any case that still doesnt give the US the right to kill at least 100000 iraqis. (There is some debate about the total number og iraqi deaths that can be attributed to the US led invasion. But figures from WHO and other organisations, put the number above 300000!!! iraqi deaths)
And on another note, gl with everything once countries decide they dont want to keep supporting the US's gigantic deficit. Why should we continue to give loans to people that just use the money to kill other people for no justifiable reason?
