It`s been going on a long time and it`s how our country was founded (on entitlement). Our forefathers felt entitled to be independent and fought for it.

    Canada, on the other hand, didn`t fight for it`s independence and has much less of this entitlement culture/mentality (with exception of the French entitlement, in Quebec). I say if the services are there let the people use them to the fullest extent of the law just like corporations take full advantage of every tax break and loophole they can.

    Mentality is the problem, with most if not all issues we face.

    Seeing how people are becoming more dependent on government instead of taking responsibility for their own actions, rights and freedoms are going by the wayside..

    Any government that can supply you with what you need, can become tyrannical enough to take it away.
    After a while to ponder this some more, it comes down to 2 simple words

    Personal responsibility !

    I`m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

    A woman knows all about her children. She knows about their best friends, romances, secret hopes and dreams, favorite foods, fears and dental appointments.



    A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

    I am not a church guy all though I think many need and flourish from it. I do live my life by one simple rule that the catholic church loves, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I see it as very simple just reverse the roles and think if you would be ok with it.

    just because its fun doesnt make it a good decision. I would find it fun to have unprotected sex with lots women but may be a bad decision or steal a sweet car like rons corvette very fun but also bad decision.

    A man will pay $10 for a $5 item he needs.

    A woman will pay $5 for a $10 item that she doesn`t need, because it`s on sale.

    I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to the car to bring my groceries in.

    I will put my arms though so I can get 5-6 hanging from my forarms then try hold as many as I can with my hands, its hard trying to get them up onto the counter and back off but totally worth saving the trip.

    Here in San Francisco and most counties around the bay area.....A plastic ban has been in effect for a few years. There is no way I could carry that much grocery to the car without the paper bags breaking on me.

    The worst part is this. The local government forces all retailers to charge the customers for the paper bags and the cost varies from counties to counties (anywhere from 10 cents to a quarter per bag).

    I think SF was the only major city I was ever in I didn`t like. The people were pretty unfriendly and stand-offish. Everywhere you walk there is a huge hill, I ended up with big blisters on my feet. Went down to the water front and had to listen to like a zillion seals yelping and crying. The climate was windy and cold, especially at night. Seemed like there where whole areas of bums laying around outside. Dunno, just didn`t like it there.

    Paying for bags,?? That wouldn`t fly at any decent supermarket here.
