Governments are getting way to sloppy with their corruptness and this is the end result.

Makes you wonder when our people will start standing up for them selves as well, here in America.

well, lets say this. im willing to protest ANYTHING the goverment does, but that gets nowhere, and what i want to protest, such as tax corruption (any tax that is taken for any reason but to raise funds is a corruption, you know you get a tax break for being married? corruption. you get higher taxes for vices such as gambling winnings, smoking, drinking. corruption)

but who will protest with me? and even than, the only way we would get change is through violence. who is willing to risk their lives? we aren't so beaten down yet that ANYTHING is better than what we have.

Your retarded your know this right? The government SHOULD be taxing cigarettes, gambling, and drinking. The government SHOULD give take breaks to married couples that aren't hopping around from person to person having a kid with everyone they sleep with. Its OUR tax money that has to pay for these kids who's parents cant support them because their parents are working off of separate incomes and one of those incomes has to support 6 kids.

You sir need to be shot.

Why to get entangled in relationships? Most amazingly, in such situations, why to have 6 kids? They are doing more harm than good - cramming up this planet!

Hey buddy you realize they give tax breaks and wellfare and state medical insurance for those kids. They encourage all those kids with taxes, well a lack of taxes that is. And as for for marriage more than half end in divorce.

The Government was too slow in turning the net off, they sould have done it from day one when it was realized that twitter and facebook were being used by the rioters to organize. For a Government insurection to be organized and propagated on something like twitter is indicative of the laziness of this generation, what happened to clandestine meetings and secret greetings in crowded areas to pass messages?

Organizing public insurrection on social networks is the easiest way for a Government to crack down on it, theyre lucky that this regime actually cares about what people think about it or else the death toll casued by the army disposing of all these people placing themselves in barrels waiting to be shot would be outright ghastly.

You sir, are an idiot. Marriage doesn't mean a damn thing. It's a ceremony just like birth, graduation, commencement, and retirement. It's a life event that has different implications for every individual. It doesn't solve overpopulation, as those bible crazy folks with 16 kids can prove.
Taxing things funds our goverment. There's no way around it unfortunately, but we CAN be smarter with spending that money and who we elect to manage that money. We can be smarter about who we help, how we encourage (but not exclusively cater to) good social behavior in our communities, and voice our individual concerns like you and the fellow you quoted are.
