  •  One sigline here wisely reminds --- taxes are (7+ / 0-)

    the price of civilization.  I'd add the reminder that --- we are the government.

    The reason we buy insurance for anything -- is an attempt to spread risk of small or large disaster among a big enough group  --- so that anyone unlucky enough to get caught in a storm gets at least a life raft.

    That is why folks whining that they don't want to pay for someone else's medical care or food or road or school -- are ridiculous.  And should be chastened each time -- no matter how they phrase it.

    We can't individually keep ourselves safe from stupid or plague or weather.   Realizing  our need for community makes us strong, not weak.

    It is harder to teach some really rich folks that any one of us could need help --- no matter how well we try to plan.  I'm thankful most of us don't quit trying to teach or trying to plan ahead.
