never had free healthcare.

what is affordable college? had to work two jobs just to pay for mine.

define healthy manufacturing industry. or do you think that life owes you something? that if it wasnt for you, the world would never have happened?

wanting same thing....

like LIBERTY, FREEDOM and JUSTICE. had to work as a kid if i wanted something. you know, EARNING.

so teaching VALUES that are NOT taught today by parents and re-inforced by schools. how the gubmint is at war with families and principles.

how good i had it. no computers, internet, cell phones, cable tv, bling, and all that other crapolla that you think you are ENTITLED to. we played outside and earned what we got. there were no freebies paid for by

Grow up. Life is hard. You make the best of what you have. You work hard, gain skills, model honest, considerate behavior towards others. You might be lucky in your lifetime and you might not. In the 1970's healthcare and college expenses were cheap, but I considered myself lucky to buy a house with a 14.5% mortgage interest rate. It all evens out. Respect others but don't force them to live by your standards. Even worse, don't force them to live by standards you have no intention of adhering to. Don't hate them if they disagree with you. By the way, the one year I lived in England, I experienced "free" healthcare (income tax rate of 55%) and almost died because of a medical mistake. Obamacare will bring us these blessings to us.

So you just insult me rather than address the substance of my argument. Par for the course for the comments section on this site I guess.

No. I hate those who experienced: free healthcare; affordable college education; a stable and healthy manufacturing industry (for unskilled workers) and extensive government investment in social programs and now have the gall to turn around and say people are "entitled" for wanting the same and that they must be "lazy' for not reaching their level of success, despite college, healthcare, gas and residential costs going through the roof in recent decades and middle and lower class wages remaining stagnant. I don't hate their success - I hate that they don't recognize how good they had it compared to people (especially young people) today.

Note: The author would like to thank the Psalmist, Switchfoot, and Samwise for inspiring this column.

Back in May of 1999, I made a decision to leave the Democratic Party. It was an easy decision. I had been a Democrat for 11 years. I voted for Dukakis when I was a committed leftist. But, later, when I became a pro-life conservative, there was no room for me in the party. So I became a Republican and also joined the NRA. I've been a straight shooter ever since. Excuse me if that last line sounded heterosexist. I’m a work in regress....
