  •  The Social Contract... (3+ / 0-)

    We clean the sewers, muck out the stables, build and repair all the electrical systems and engines, fight the fires, care for the injured, house the elderly, daycare the kids, teach the young, die, get maimed and mentally ill in the wars, and for that, we get... 1200 dollars a month from age 64 to 74, when, on average, we die from stress related diseases.

    I wouldn't mess with the Social Contract if I were among rich. If they don't like THIS deal, they REALLY wouldn't like the other deal.

    Fair warning.

      The day they walked out of independence hall or where ever the signing was no doubt the very same signers walked right past some incidents where the "All men are created equal" was a part of the process.

      Social Contracts written or handshaken or as worth as much as a roll of thin toliet paper if the men who are 'bound' to keep them have "bad" hearts...
