Clearly you are not Catholic. We Catholic are all sinners. But we still pay for our chicken dinners.

We do pay for our dinners, except the externalized costs like polluted waterways. Society picks up the tab for that.

"You are driving first and foremost to protect those many adjacent drivers - your team members. And second, also driving to protect yourself."

So, no matter how many times I say 'no, that's now how it works for me', you'll insist you know my mind better than me, yes?

"Society picks up the tab for that."

No, taxpayers like me and you do.

Uh...taxpayers like me and you ARE society.

The only non-members are tax-avoiding corporations. Like the ones that pollute our waterways and then buy politicians to roll back environmental protections.

The only protection the little guys like you and me have is to band together to create a representative government (oops, see above) which has collective bargaining power to prevent profit-driven entities from doing damage to the environment we humans require in order to live.

But wait, the moneyed interests have created a propaganda arm which convinces the disenfranchised working class that "the government" or "society" is causing their problems, when in reality wages have been suppressed for decades, by corporations. The same ones that pollute, don't pay taxes, and pump millions of collars into getting business-friendly politicians elected.



Of course the REAL problem is "political correctness" and labia-pierced welfare queens who don't respect the FLAG and the CONSTITUTION.

Lots of folks -- society members, all -- don't pay a dime in tax, and aren't payin' a penny toward cleaning up rivers and lakes.

Children, for example...good drones in training, each and every one...nuthin' comin' their pockets...many folks who subsist solely by way of public assistance...nuthin' comin' out of their pockets either.

As for corps: some get away with murder, some don't.

Suggestion: get your posterboard, your black marker, and your protestin' shoes on, that and mebbe stop buyin' from the folks who dump shit in the river (beyond you and me, that is, and the actual poop we drop out of our backsides).

As for politicians: as long as you keep treatin' 'em as sumthin' other than the employees they are, they're gonna keep lining their pockets and living where the shit ain't.

This ^^^ is the DEFINITION of a society. You can't have a society with only healthy, able-bodied, working-age members. That's not realistic. We're ALL IN IT TOGETHER.

And only the TAXPAYING portion is payin' the bills, so, no society isn't payin', taxpayers are

Oh, yeah, by the way, for the record...

Next time you get the urge to put words in my mouth that aren't mine (or that are adulterations of what I did say), or ascribe notions or philosophies to me that I don't back, just save yourself the time and tell me to go fuck myself.

That would be a heluva lot more honest and direct than all this tired and tiresome communitarian manure you're foistin' up.

Watch...

Flint, go fuck yourself.

...see? Easy. Direct. Honest.

And it feeeels so gooood.

'nuff said.

You're an idiot, and your reprehensible, insufferably ignorant political opinions are literally what's wrong with the world. Unchecked, selfish asshole feelings can only create a hellish nightmare that we all have to suffer through--including the selfish asshole AND the reasonable, decent people who were throwing up red flags, all the way over the cliff.

That sound about right? Want to own that, or chicken-shit out with a glib excuse?

You've never given a single moment of deep thought to anything, you just say words.

You're a boring troll. Worth engaging for 5-10 minutes.

The whole cooperative enterprise of human civilization, stretching back across eons of time, is dumb. The only good thing is the 80-or-so years in which I am living, in which good old-fashioned American capitalism created chicken dinners for the good people who deserve them.
That whole post rocked my world, but that last paragraph is lovely.
