"I like the bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit." Me, too, and that's all I'll eat there...if I'm on the road which I'm increasingly...NOT. Wendy's and Subway are pretty widely distributed and offer good food (mostly) with more personalization (especially Subway) in a reasonably short time for fair prices. For chicken I try to go with Chick-fil-A because I like their attitude as well as their food and good, friendly service, though Mike's right. Wendy's Chicken sandwich is pretty good. "Fast food" should be first...FAST but sacrificing taste and choice just for speed won't work. Feeding people is a...pay attention McD...SERVICE BUSINESS. That means serving the customers as they wish to be served, not as you please. They'll leave you in droves...which you're discovering.
to finish your list... 4. grows itself larger 5.creates unnecessary and burdensome laws, and regulations 6. butts into anyplace, anywhere into anything it isn't forcefully denied 7. spends, spends, spends 8. ignoring the will of the people it supposedly "serves" 9. protecting its insiders but what it does best of all is... 10. failing utterly to adhere to the Constitution of the United States of America
An anti-gun Dem, a RADICAL, violent, anti-gun Dem arrested for carrying a weapon ILLEGALLY. Stupid and arrogant...the laws don't apply to THEM. I hope the judge isn't a friend of hers. Throw the book-for which she has no regard--at her. Don't miss.

Our government has become an ongoing criminal conspiracy and institutionalized core deep corruption. Just like any other banana republic run by a narcissistic crackpot.

We have more than one "entitlement" class but we the people are supporting all of them.

It's true that everyone isn't born a genius-thankfully. Nor is everyone ever going to achieve equal outcomes, as much because they don't WANT to as because they can't. But you conflating ignorance with poverty puts you firmly into the "stupid" category. We all have areas of ignorance since no one knows everything. Stupid is willful ignorance. Are the poor "willfully ignorant" because they have been denied access to any but failing schools/indoctrination centers...by progressive Leftists? Or because since Johnson's "war on poverty" was launched, the effort has been pretty successful at dumbing them down and making them dependent? It has been the progressive agenda for decades to lock certain "classes" into slots from which few escape. The progs need the "poor" as a grievance group to extort more money and need to grow ever more gov't. They are easier to control if they are mostly a static population, demographically known and excitable. They have been as totally indoctrinated as any kid growing up under Hamas, ISIS or any other group that preaches hatred for any "others". A few escape but the majority don't even know to look for better. As bad for the US and the world as the abysmal ignorance of the "poor" generally is the stupidity of those in higher social strata. Their ignorance is willful. They choose to remain ignorant of facts and history, oblivious to the utter destruction being wrought by policies of which they care to know nothing. Common sense has been systematically and actively discouraged by the progressives who invaded and conquered our educational system. Political correctness has been diligently assassinating any that managed to escape the educational indoctrination. But those with "means" can far more easily overcome all of that...but most don't. Rail at the ignorance of the poor if it makes you feel superior but fight the stupidity of the middle and upper strata for it's them who are truly destroying us. They have been and remain larger in number--for now--but their willful ignorance is stupidity in action.

The [self] lauded NYT should change its self-chosen label from "all the news that's fit to print" to "all the lies we had time to print today" or "socialist regime talking points". It's not fit to wrap fish or line a bird cage.
"the guy should probably pick up a new hobby." Yeah, Bloomberg's picture would be exceedingly popular as a range target. He might double his current portfolio!
"This group in Seattle is willing to pay you $13 per hour to go lobby for a $15 per hour minimum wage." And those supposed brilliant intellectuals see no hypocrisy there, I'm sure. Hope someone sues them into the middle of the next century. What a laugh that would be.
Yeah, that whole WMD excuse for war with a mass murderer...gee, even without info from all the Really Smart People, the CIA, the ABCDEFGXYZ...even I, a lowly middle class "worker" figured out that ALL the intelligence agencies in the Whole World...might have gotten it right. I even, reluctantly, found myself in agreement with elected idjits with whom I'd NEVER before (or since) agreed. You know the cartoon image of an idea---the lightbulb lighting up? Mine just blew up. I knew the media was biased but until then I hadnt admitted how viciously and deeply entrenched they were into lying for a living to protect losers.
