Gary, you made a valid point on who is a leech when you talked about the incarcerated felon. Society gives them food, shelter and clothing. I see a big disconnect when someone who is not incarcerated and does not have the opportunity to earn such is denied the three basics.

I do not disagree in principal. Almost everyone has something they can offer to benefit society. Not all of those benefits translate easily into cash income. That is why I am using the definition of leech that I have posted.

Nope. He is talking about how Your Dear Leader has to go. And at 96 years old, and still with a Mind Like A Steel Trap, I would take His Advice.

Vote Your Dear Leader aka Makes U.S. ILL out of office.

Seems to me that elections have been coming down to who is the lesser of two evils to vote for. It used to be you voted for the guy who thought was the best.

I'd be wary of this one too as the US incarcerates a disproportionate number of blacks and the poor. The justice is system is flawed and they are locking up far too many people.

I think that you will find that it is in proportion to those committing the crimes, offenses and felonies. It's not because of any implied prejudice.

What's a slacker/leech? Google-video or youtube "free obama money." You'll find several specific examples there.

Why are most of those videos uploaded by a youtube user with the handle "greatguyintx"?


Not me.

OK, here's a definition of "slacker/leech" to work with. How about a person who refuses to be a productive member of society? How about a person who refuses to earn what he/she consumes? How about a person who has a sense of entitlement to other people's money with out doing anything to earn it? How about a person who refuses to recognize their field of expertise has an excess of other people who have their same field of expertise and refuses to find a field where there is a shortage of laborers and do what it takes to become an expert in a new field? How about a person who blames their ancestry on their current predicament? How about a person who feels their efforts are worth more than what someone else is willing to pay and therefore refuses to do anything and would rather continue collecting unemployment?

Is that enough of a definition? No? Then I don't know what your looking for.

Try giving me a definition of someone who is NOT a slacker/leech and then maybe we can work from there.

I truly care for all producers/slackers/leeches, sincerely,

Guy the Great!



Here's a bipartisan definition: the more you can post to S@H forums, the more you are slacking.
How's that?
Everybody happy?

The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world, so it seems that William believes Americans are the worst people on Earth and deserve to be imprisoned.

He must have been joking. There is no way he could come out with something like that and be serious.

We will send our deserving criminals (only those convicted) up to Toronto and Ottawa so that you can hug them. This will help our northern neighbor score full marks in the area of diversity. How many do each of you want to harbor in your house. Or perhaps you could get your lord mayor to request a transfer of a few hundred thousand of these felons as a humanitarian gesture. What do you say Laddies ?? Maybe they can loot the Eaton Center or the Banff Springs hotel with impunity or they could go on a frosty skate on the Rideau Canal.

An estimated 28.5 percent of black men, 16.0 percent of Hispanic men and 4.4 percent of white men can be expected to serve a state or federal prison term.

WHY?
