You have nothing else to say to me if I don't say that the United States is wholly capitalistic? Is that supposed to make me feel bad? You've named just one of the multiple social programs but keep going because there are many many more.

All you do is tear down and rip apart like an old dog with a bone. You have no solutions you only point out what everyone else in the United States is doing wrong. So typical of people who point out the problems and don't offer solutions or don't contribute to make things better. Stop crying! There are so many organizations in the United States that are begging for help to change wrongs or fix problems. I think you would rather complain, complain, complain, rant and rave.

Look around the world lady and look at the countries that are predominately Muslim and look what they have done with the billions and billions and billions of dollars they have made from their oil. What have they done with it? They build cities for the rich, they buy cars made of silver so they can admire their reflections, they erect palaces as big as cities and line their toilets with gold then throw a few coins to a beggar for their own glory. Are you proud? or is that why you lash out so that you don't have to see and you don't have to hear and you don't have to question.

One last thing for you to chew on and swallow. Don't feel so special because you pay taxes. EVERYONE pays taxes some more than others. If you buy, if you sell, if you talk on the phone, use electricity, water, the internet, watch television, you pay taxes whether city, state, or federal. And YES a percentage of our tax money goes to SOCIAL PROGRAMS in which you would not have time to name them all.
