    reasons, and I had in mind to mention that.  (My mind = a sieve.)  But I like to keep on planting a seed in threads like this.  Historically it "just became the presumption", but that doesn't mean that can't be changed.  

    Owing one's soul to the company store sounds like one of the nastier aspects of the current "system".  It affected my Dad.  Once his heart had murmured, there was no way he could leave his employer, even when they insisted on relocating him to the opposite coast of the USA.  He was 50 then; died at 53.

    The Republicans are defunding, not defending, America.
