first of all unemployment in germany has been pretty bad, although it's been getting better over the last few years. secondly, the working are taxed 19% on EVERYTHING. oh, and they also pay taxes on every single electronic device they use... something to the tune of about $2,500 a year for the average computer owning, cable watching home, so dick off with 'no fact'

secondly, yes while the homeless man getting a few bucks (euro) wasn't accomplishing "nothing" it did nothing to further his situation. maybe he ate that day, but what did he LEARN. teach a man to fish..., as the saying goes. those who earn their wealth are entitled to keep the same percentage as the rest of us. it isn't the government's place to step in and enforce charity because, let's face it, that's what taking from the haves to give to the have-nots is.

we will effectively be rewarding mediocrity.

if someone is doing well enough, and feels like giving, i'm all for helping out your fellow man. but that is the sovereign right of the individual, not something that should be dictated by big brother.

i don't get liberals... they'll fight for the right to kill the unborn and use abortion as birth control, and fight even harder to prevent a death-row inmate from being lethally injected. they'll fight to prevent kids from praying in schools, and fight even harder to let gay men marry in a church. thanks to the media, our country truely is skewed.... and i'm not even very religious, just moderate. and i'm sick of being called a racist. i don't dislike obama any more than i dislike a white democrat... but now that he will be in office, i pray no one tries to take a shot at him. that would be ten times worse than him being elected in the first place.

i really don't know why i'm complaining so much... i've been wanting to marry my dog sinse i brought him home from the pound. with the dem's in complete control i'll be able to this time next year.
