    any government help should not receive help.

    Otherwise, they get their cake and eat mine too.

    Republicans would have no problem playing hard ball, so there is no reason we shouldn't do the same.

      is what keeps our humanity in tact.

      Thinking of others and helping them even though they would rather watch me die is what makes me a Liberal.... and a Human.  

      We can always make more cake... to share.  :)

      let them sleep in the bed they made, I'm with Jane on this one.  Doing the right thing, the merciful thing, rather than the "fair" or "just" thing is what keeps us form becoming the thing we hate.

      And besides, it allows us to feel all morally superior and shit.

      I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

        policy they never bought.

        •  We are the human. (0+ / 0-)

          Hate and revenge only breed more hate and revenge.  

          If anything else, your attitude about kicking them in the teeth while they are down - won't even affect them - but you might be sending messages to people around you ... like your kids.  

          Try killing em with kindness.  Especially when they are "down".

          Compassion takes practice.  It's hard work.  

          That's why war is so  much easier.  It doesn't take critical thought, compassion or mercy.  

          Good luck.
