Memorial Day is the right time to contemplate a return to the military draft. We would be well served during wars of necessity, and wars of choice would be drastically curtailed.

Your vent does not make sense to me. What are you saying that some people don’t work and get paid?

There is definitely income inequality. Secret Service, DEA agents, IRS and other government employees are not doing their jobs yet getting paid for their non-efforts.

Are you so stupid that you think that insurance companies will pay for some deadbeat’s medical care? Someone is going to pay and it will be you and me and the other working tax payers.

Can not understand the resentment? How about getting millions on the backs of the people? How about getting rewarded millions for closing down their jobs? How about paying women much less than men? How about your IRA being worth millions because of the inside deals you get to take advantage of?

OK you Fair Tax zealots, if the tax is to be applied to all products and services, why are financial service products, i.e., stocks and bonds excluded? Don’t they have value because they exist in a conducive environment? Sounds like the designers of the system want to encourage freeloaders in the financial district.

Also small hospitals are closing in all areas of Georgia. How far do you want Pregnant women to go to have their babies?

In their zeal to keep folks less fortunate (and Less wealthy) from buying insurance instead of using the emergency room, the GOP has managed to throw EVERYBODY under the bus. The people of Georgia will end up paying for this instead of the insurance companies

“…China took all the middle class jobs away” Well, actually, they didn’t, but the jobs did go to Asia. You were corrdct that it wasn’t Obama or “W”‘s fault. That is reserved for the lying legislators in Congress!

If you burn the Confederate flag because of “slavery”, then, you need to burn the flags from all the countries who hunted, trapped, captured and sold people of all color over many, many centuries!

Cannot understand all the resentment against wealthy people.
Wouldn’t you like to be one of them? There is plenty of room at the top. It helps if you are smart, dependable, a hard worker, have a creative mind and not afraid to take chances.
If you have none of the qualities you probably will never make it to wealthy status. And whose fault might that be?

I worked social services for 32 years you have no idea what you are talking about. DFACS has numerous opportunities for you to be on a committee and help and learn about this. Do it

The rich in my circle definitely pay out the butt in taxes…while most people who are on welfare (food stamps, free housing, Medicaid) have no goals….no job..don’t care if they ever get a job…just enjoying life staying home not marrying baby daddy and baby daddy selling drugs to your kids.
