Do you think you shouldn't have to pay for the gov services that you use

That quote was in the context of my social views, which are pretty much right down the middle.

Actually the facts back up most men's rights issues. But it usually takes a feelings over facts argument to convince people to care.

Anyway, I only came in to annoy somebody with that "immoral leftist" line. Guess it worked and bad mod etc. now let's get back to shitting on Trump before this thread is any more derailed.

I mean there's also facts behind pretty much anything you can throw that lame trope at. Still, saying "where is your compassion?" just makes you sound like a whiny soccer mom. Just sayin.

@ TH - It's not really an American thing. It's just easier to discuss this stuff through an American lense because America is to noteworthy.

I mean, I think the way that divorce works in favor of women over men is nonsense, and generic sitcom storylines about how men constantly **** up and women have to put up with us are stupid, especially in how it reflects society's views towards male/female relations, but there's not a whole lot of ways that men get the shaft in society. There are goofy feminist statistics about job ****, but we have it pretty ****ing good.

It's understandable. It's not their fault. The problem with that crap and modern feminism is the completely misguided finger-pointing. Feminists didn't get together and decide that it will be a societal standard for women to get half of all your **** when you divorce. They also didn't decide that they would have primary custody of your children. If anything I'd probably argue those things were pushed on them by the patriarchy.

Def. Women aren't given primary custody because of feminism. They're given primary custody cause men think women are the more caring parents.

Let's get back to this basic statement. It is so socially abhorrent as to render Goofle a jerk, plain and simple.

Hey buddy, my soon to be 28 year old son suffers from a mental disorder. In the last 10 years he's tried his ass off but hasn't been able to hold down a single job for longer than 3 months. He hates being a failure but can't fix it. I've totally accepted the fact that I'll wake some day to find out he's killed himself.

He gets $200 bucks a month from the government for his disability in order to try and keep him off the streets. That's less than $6 bucks a day.

Now let's talk about the billionaires like Trump who pay nothing in taxes because of having the clout to fully exploit tax loopholes designed for the rich.

Get a ****ing clue Goof.

Not that you were looking for sympathy but I'm genuinely sorry to hear that.

Me too. One thing you can take pride in, Chula, is that you have nothing to reproach yourself for if it happens (hope of course it doesn't): from what you have said here, and what I know of you, you've been an excellent father and Linda has been a fantastic mother. Just thought you should know that.

I just don't want to hear anymore of the American "why does the gov take so much of my money" whiny bitch syndrome

This is at least half of Republican voters I think

It's like getting nice and full at a restaurant and then being all outraged when the waiter drops the bill

All the services that got you well off cost our money
