No society ever thrived because it had a large and growing class of parasites living off those who produce.

  1. Hear, hear!

    I often marvel at those who are living off of my efforts and the attendant risks, trials and tribulations involved therein, yet nonetheless view themselves as superior. My retort is; Do not presume to be in any position to tell me what’s happening, what’s right or wrong, or how anything works. All of your problems, and many of mine, stem from that presumption of yours. Do as I’ve done for the last 35 years and then, maybe, we can talk as equals. Until then, you are far, far, FAR below me in stature, if we choose to look at such things. Otherwise either ask me for advice or leave me alone. You have nothing to offer me but threats, accusations and demands, and I’d just as soon pass on all of that, thank you.

    Think what you will of him, but Jesus said it very specifically and clearly;
    “The Kings of the Gentile exercise lordship over them, and they that exercise authority are called benefactors. Ye shall not be so…

    That right there (“Ye shall not be so…”) is the basis of the American ideal. So it is that I say, the war of authoritarians against liberty is properly understood as a was against Judeo/Christian Civilization.

  2. The Iron Lady said the same thing with slightly different words: “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money”.

  3. What’s amazing is how offended many leftists get at calling a parasite a parasite. Heads go all ‘splody an’ all.
