Those people you call parasitic thrash are trying to do the best they can do in their situation. The same YOU would be doing if you were ever to wind up in their situation.
The problem is not the fairly small amount of economic refugees taking bits off of the bottom of the economy, it's the established upper 1% that are milking the sheeple for all they have that are the problem. They're the parasites; the economic refugees usually take on the jobs you probably feel above doing.
Looks like they've done a good job convincing you that the problem is caused by the 'parasitic thrash'. You would have been a great asset to the NSDAP some 70 years ago. Now pick up that can citizen, get in line and show me your papers.
No, no, no.
You have that all wrong; that $600 million is trickling its way back into the economy.
At least that's the reasoning if you're one of the 1%-ers or one of the 99% percent of the population who thinks they're going to wind up in the 1% group in the future (good luck with that btw).
Not directly, but at least my expectation of a first world country would include excellent public transport. In the US public transport has been killed by privatisation and corporate lobbying.
Poor public services are an indication of a third world country however, the way things seems to be going in the US is that the only thing that's going to be 'first world' quality is the military.
Not only happening in the US though in Europe the neo-liberalist governments are killing affordable public transport, housing, healthcare and education as well. That does seem to happen due to influences from the US government; EU politicians trying to be more like the US.
Terrorist. Grab the dolphin lover.
Humans are the only sub-sapient species on this planet. The proof is all around us.
Republicans vs Democrats
Who ever wins, we lose.
It's supposed to be 'innocent UNLESS proven guilty'.
Although in this decade you're probably correct. Alphabet Soup agencies dig until they're able to prove you're guilty of something
Some people claim that the UNIX learning curve is steep, but at least you only have to climb it once.
