Citation needed.

Are you seriously asking for a citation to demonstrate that it's human nature to take things offerred at no cost?

More than you. Not only have I made monetary contributions but I volunteer my free time to moderate it.

I'm asking you for any justification whatsoever for this claim:

We may note here that "we would all be free riders" is not equivalent to what you just now said, "we would take what's offered us".

So there's that.

... this is my signature!

RE: Why do we treat poor people like children?
When working as a cashier a few years back a young couple came in and bought some groceries and paid with food stamps. Then they wanted a pregnancy test (kept behind the counter because they were a hot shoplifting item). They wanted to pay for it with FOOD STAMPS. They were breeding...but couldn't understand why they couldn't buy the test with their FOOD STAMPS. Finally I just looked at them and said, "You can't eat it."

What pisses me off about food stamps was when I would go shopping for our family when the kids were still at home and saw things like this- my cart was filled with hamburger and less expensive foods and no sodas, few snacks...because I was PAYING out of my pocket for the stuff in my cart. Shopping sales and using the dreaded coupons from the Sunday paper were how we got to have 'luxury' items. I would be in line with people with carts full of name brand snack and sodas packed in so tight they could barely move the cart...people buying ribeyes several times a week, we got steak about once every other month. These people had carts piled high with expensive junk food and then whipped out their EBT card to pay for it.

One evening two women that were together had FOUR carts filled to overflowing with sodas and snacks and expensive cuts of meat...things we couldn't afford. Because of the way taxes worked with manufacturers coupons the second woman was asked to pay around 87 cents in tax. She pitched a complete hissy fit. She didn't have to pay taxes, she had food stamps and therefore was tax exempt...now between the two they had around $600 in groceries for free and she was showing her ass over 87 fucking cents. The lady behind me and I exchanged a glance and both felt sorry for the clerk that was being verbally abused by this witch. I finally handed over a buck and said here let me pay for that since I already helped pay for the rest of it.

When I got outside with my pitiful groceries they were still loading food into their fucking LEXUS....really!

The laws need to be changed but not to handing out cash. The abuse would then be even worse.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy
