Dawn Loggins, who graduates Thursday from Burns High School in the small town of Lawndale, was used to re-adjusting.

It is foolish to want to live in an unregulated society: youtube(dot)com/watch?v=rQSX4Tb-pJE Also read the comments by TonyZXT and habadashery2009.

That is false.

Unfortunately, if we do away with government but not the parasite class, things will be even worse for the poor.
Scott Andrew Hutchins
Yes, I am opposed to the parasite class, but they also have their Ayn Rand newspeak that those who are so poor as to need government assistance to survive are the parasites, in a blatant case of externalization.
Scott Andrew Hutchins
Why should there be allowed to be a parasitic class?
Scott Andrew Hutchins
Just don't complain that they are living on government assistance if you're having them work for free.
Scott Andrew Hutchins
I don't respect someone who thinks that an employer should have the right to choose whether he should pay those who work for him.
