    Whether you’re the 1% or the 47%, if you think you’re entitled to something, you’re full of it, and a burden on the rest of us.

    And here we go, it was not a religious comment.
    .
    Hardly christian to encourage sloth, so his attidtude definitely is more Christian than what you imply.
    .
    But since Odin and Thor are where I am at it is obvious your “christian” attitude is not meant to be used as you are using the religion.
    .
    Inclusive it was meant to be. Encouraging fruitful labor and harmony. A joke the way it is practiced,

    Thank you Michael. I could not have said it better. Especially those on EBT cards, with welfare checks for 10+ kids driving Ford Escalades and from Haiti.

    Yup, the angry white guy watching Fox ‘news’ paying NRA dues, complaining about THEM. ‘Them’ being anyone who actually believes that the constitution is for ALL Americans.

    Too bad estate taxes don’t kick in until you break $3M.

    Hmm, I’ve lived most of my life in areas that the Spanish occupied for from 100 to 200 plus years before English speakers moved in. I learned a little Spanish by “osmosis”, but certainly not fluent, though many of my friends in school were. I did take Latin (valuable for learning English actually!), was fairly well off in German, but lack of use leads to forgetting vocabulary, picked up Vietnamese and Mohave by “exposure”, but as I age, even remembering English is sometimes problematic.


    But, the real issue is that America’s “melting pot” IS becoming far more diverse, and those “old angry white guys”, don’ like it a bit, nor for that matter do a lot of angry “Hispanics” (what does that actually mean anyway? Mexican, Spanish, Guatemalan? And those Brazilians folks think are “Hispanic”, actually speak Portuguese!), “African Americans” (Okay, if a Caucasian from South Africa migrates to America is he still “African American”? Is Lewis Hamilton the Formula One driver who is black and British, “African American”? a pointless and inaccurate term.) and other ethnic groups.


    What about Italian communities in Boston, where many of the folks speak no English? The same is true of well, how about German speaking sects in the midwest?


    The thing is, our “melting pot” is more like a cup of cocoa, with a blending of color that can vary quite a bit from cup to cup, but we usually see the marshmallows at the top of the cup, only white, except when they too get a touch of color and aren’t really one or another, but a blend, like our current President. Considering most Americans ARE kinda’ “mongrels” (not necessarily a derogatory, as most dog owners know the mongrels are often brighter, and better dogs, than the inbred “purebreds”) what IS wrong with properly identifying a person as “mulatto” which is a biologically accurate term?


    Of course as all humans can trace their DNA back to eastern Africa, who IS who, or what, in the human zoo?

    From kindergarten thru 12th grade we should be taught all 3 languages of the north American continent, English, Spanish and French.
    -————————
    That’s a great idea!
    (Of course, as a languages instructor, I’m prejudiced. I taught German to elementary school students, in a school that offered German, Spanish and French. I’m currently living in Mexico, where I’m attempting to add Spanish to my repertory.)

    I’m not sure where I fit on the percentage scale, but as a retiree who contributed to Social Security all my working life, I am damn-well entitled to my retirement benefits! Who’s “full of it”? You are!

    About a decade ago, while attending a seminar, I heard that the “melting pot” is now a “salad bowl” with various ingredients. That doesn’t explain the marshmallows, though.

    The 47% think that they are entitled to the Social Security they paid into, the 1% think they are entitled to the world.

    Eryx: I’m over 67 AND a disabled vet. My son is 33 and a disabled vet. “MichaelParent” should spend a day, even a couple hours in the shoes of a disabled vet and it would be a mind changer. Oh, wait, a lot of my friends don’t HAVE shoes, and a lot who do, only have prostheses between the shoes and their stumps.
