"If you hold a job in the US you pay Federal and State Unemployment tax, but the benefits you get, if you lose your job, especially if you haven't worked yet a long time, are so low a" WRONG
"On an average the tuition costs per month is well over $ 2,000.00 plus for the cheapest public university " ABSURD
"It's not comprehensible to me why Americans don't revolt against the lack of any common sense security net that covers people from the worst, homelessness through joblessness and bankruptcy through sickness." WE DO VOTE FOR WHAT WE WANT, REGARDLESS OF SOMEONE ELSE'S OPINION OF OUR COMMON SENSE. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU JUST DON'T GET AMERICAN OPINION? NO, I GUESS WE'RE JUST F''''ING IDIOTS, AND OUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE SHOULD JUST BE TAKEN AWAY FROM US.
Analsis of WSJ article, which project much of American opinion:
"They tell these lies over and over, that it's not the system it's the people, the underclass with their "certain characteristics." It's not a lack of jobs, education, skills, or opportunity, they say. It's the people. The inert mothers and lazy fathers who won't get out of bed. These people do nothing to help themselves, they always say. And they profit from these lies and this fear and make the moat wider while the castle grounds shrink."
YEAH AMERICANS COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE POOR, DON'T DO ANYTHING TO TRY TO ALLEVIATE IT, DON'T CONTRIBUTE THEIR HOURS OF WORK OR MONEY. AMERICANS ARE JUST BLOOD SUCKERS ON THE LOWER CLASS.
"As for the US, I meant what I said: Yes I believe poverty is a goal of the system. The social programs you allude to are, in the US, being thoroughly trashed. The New Deal was seventy years ago, and after a fine run of four decades, it is now road kill." THIS WAS PART OF A DISCUSSION THAT ACCUSED THE USA OF HAVING A POLICY OF CONDEMNING ITS CITIZENS TO POVERTY. ABSURD OF COURSE.
