    to make it.

    Don’t tell me that anyone working in the United States doesn’t make enough to live off of.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAAAHHAAHAHAAHAAAHAHAHAAAHHHAAAHAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAA.

    You're an idiot.

    Our lives are not the sum of our choices, they are the sum of an infinity of infinities of events transpiring both over the billions of years that preceded our appearance, as well as transpiring since, the vast majority of which are almost entirely beyond our control.

    What an ass.

    What an ass's ass.

    Ass.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      I'm the ass when you're the one that has been completely uncivil and cursed while I was trying to have a rational and civil discussion. Believe me, I disagree with your views just as much as you disagree with mine, but you don't see me being rude.

      Our lives are not the sum of our choices, they are the sum of an infinity of infinities of events transpiring both over the billions of years that preceded our appearance, as well as transpiring since, the vast majority of which are almost entirely beyond our control.
      So you believe that our choices have no effect on our lives? That our lives were laid out on a path long before we were even thought of. If you truly believed that you wouldn't have such a passionate disdain for my belief that we are all responsible for our own successes and failures. Are there outside influences that effect what choices we are faced with, certainly. If I hadn't decided to comment on this site, you would have never been faced with the choice of whether or not to reply to every comment I made on this article.

      Maybe I should have put one small qualifier in my proclamation that people working in the United States make enough to live off of. That qualifier being that there is ample opportunity in the United States for people to make enough to live off of, it's a matter of personal determination as to whether or not they will do so. Once again, a choice. If I choose to make no money, I will make no money. If I choose to live well beyond my means, I will be broke. Choices my friend, choices.

      We do agree on one thing, education is what our society chooses to make it, which means we're all responsible for the inadequacy of our education system. And that has nothing to do with money, and everything to do with effort.

        I say that the vast majority of the events that affect our lives are entirely out of control.

        You then come back and argue, "So you believe that our choices have no effect on our lives?"

        And then you wonder why I'm rude. I'm rude because, as that entirely broken bit of "reasoning" clearly demonstrates, you aren't smart enough to be having this conversation, nor to sit smugly upon the self-satisfying opinions that your incompetent logical faculty generates for you to burble on about; never mind act upon those opinions or even worse, foist them on other people as if they were somehow something worth promulgating.

        I have one last piece of advice for you: Look at the calendar. Note that date. Now: Spend the next 10 years actually thinking about all the stuff about which you're opining (this won't be easy, because you're going to have to spend the first 2 or 3 years investigating the difference between thinking and whatever it is you've been doing up to now) and until that 10 years is up, keep entirely to yourself whatever ill-considered half-baked semi-informed notions you have churning around in your happy-clappy-we-all-get-what-we-deserve-and-deserve-what-we-get-and-i-am-all-right-jack brain.

        Good night, sir.
