Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
way to make a valid point retard.
it might be because i am from good old europe, but here a financial solidarity between citizens is enshrined in pretty all constitutions.
to be honest, its a good thing. of course paid my mom (single mother) a lot of money to social insurance systems back in the day, i will pay them a lot of money my whole working life and so will everybody else.
but recently, i needed two surgeries, one to fix my nasal septum and second one to "clean" (thats the word the doctors used) my ankle joint from a few cartilage/bone splinters. i dunno how much those surgeries cost since i never had to worry about. same with dental, sport medicine and whatever.
in my hometown, there is not much work beside winter/summer season. a lot of people get money in may, june, september, october and november when unemployed. so there is a financial security.
of course there are downsides (people abusing the system, foreigners coming to us and try to get money out of the system) but in general i think its good, and all you americans who think obamas a socialist, please shut up.
this thread sucks.
It starts off making no sense and then mutates into one of the 400 clones we had a few months ago. It's like another brangelina baby.
