We can survey the various social segments of our society and note that, broadly, there are two distinct parts: the takers and the givers. This implies that many contribute nothing to the host much as mistletoe and various chronic diseases do.
This must be a touchy subject as Mitt the Snitt was bashed profoundly for sharing the news that some 47% of the population pay nothing for their housing, grub, healthcare, drug rehab costs and such.
““There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what…who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. …These are people who pay no income tax. …and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
