Thread: Sec. of Treasury says aggressive action needed re: housing

    Default Re: Sec. of Treasury says aggressive action needed re: housing

    My two questions have not been answered:

    1. Is government mediation acceptable?
    2. What would be the COMPREHENSIVE consequences of no government intervention in the current situation?

    The reason, as I have stated, is the protection of EVERYONE's property, not just mine. I do not consider help immoral. If you actually read my post, you would haveseen that I CONDONE helping people, I just don't think that the government should mandate that personal resources be taken to do so. I have led many church groups, mission trips, and food/clothing drives to help people. We do not htink that the govenrment should take things from people to give them to other peole -- we think that if people are to give, it should be of their own free will.

    Still, you have not told me how you think its OK to take htings from their owners and redistribute it. You still have not told me how you would feel if the governmetn took your house or money to give it to someone else.

    If you can't answer that, you are telling me that you think its OK to redistribute wealth, as long as its not your wealth.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    Because I need it, so I am going to take it. If you don't like it, get over it. Seriously, I think I rather like your concept. You just make the assumption I am going to do the "right" thing, as you define it. Not likely. If I were to fall on hard times in this system it becomes..... if I need it..... I am going to take it. Because the alternative would suck and I will do what I need to do. Dog eat dog.

    You don't know the story of Robin Hood?

    Hopefully you're not a reading teacher -- your comprehension's not too good. My "concept" makes no such assumption as you have decided to shove in there. My "concept" says that everyone is entitled to the protection of his own assets. That does not rely on people policing themselves to do the "right" thing -- the government can help protect people and their property (as it is done now).

    I do not adovcate taking things from other people -- this is NOT dog eat dog. Please don't mistake that and don't tell me that that's what I am saying -- you clearly are nto paying attention.

    I surely do know the story of Robin Hood, but that has nothing to do with you. The fact is that you stil lwon't answer the question -- you still haven't told me if you think its OK for the government to take your house or money to give it to someone else.

    You have told us that you think it is OK for the governmetn to take other people's assets, but it is not OK for the governmetn to take yours. That is hypocritical to the highest degree. Some "comapssion." We should take what we want from all you little people, but leave Mr. Gallan's assets alone -- he claims he "needs" them. His "needs" trump those of the rest of the country.
