From what I've gathered from your posts it's about an hour of work and then surfing the internet for the remainder of the day. :p

OK, fine, I'll tell you. I work at Planned Parenthood. I'm a receptionist and I hand out DIY abortion kits.

Now that's a job I can support. Seriously, though, why are you hiding your alleged profession?

I'm not. Plenty of people around here know what I do. I just don't feel like it's of consequence in these conversations. Nor will I indulge some random person's curiosity on demand.

You know what I do. I respect everyone's profession. Just curious if where someone works or what someone does influences their opinion on corporations, the economy, government spending, etc.

Personal information is the kryptonite of the anonymous liberal internet troll.

He wasn't speaking ill of them as entities.. he spoke of the abuse that is rampant among those programs. Rubio's parents relied on those programs to receive a leg up... and look what they produced : A successful, intelligent, hard-working man of principles and ideals who is now contributing to our society.

Far too many fail to make anything of themselves regardless of the handouts they're given.

What abuses are rampant in social security and Medicare?

nothing like exaggerating one's qualifications in order to feel like they have a horse in the race. seems to be the conservative's path to self validation.

I think many of us know each other here personally to not exaggerate qualifications or personal info.
