"A key senator has asked the Social Security Administration to investigate how people who live their lives role-playing as Ã¢??adult babiesÃ¢?? are able to get taxpayer-funded disability payments Ã¢?? after one of them was featured on a recent reality TV episode wearing diapers, feeding from a bottle and using an adult-sized crib he built."
I give up on this country. I do. We suck, admit it. Tell him to get his overweight ass out of his crib and get a damn job. The friggen arrogance of this idiot. "I'll kill myself if the tax payers don't fund my fetish." I don't like hostage takers demanding a ransom from me. Even when the hostage is themselves. I'd call his bluff, and let his death be on his head, not ours. What a despicable human being. I can't believe he'll continue getting his fetish subsidy at our expense. We are weak-willed mush. We deserve to go bankrupt. Too bad generations not even born yet will have to pay for our inability to be judgmental, to make decisions based on hard reality, and to hold people accountable for themselves. We suck.
I know it sucks to have a political conversation with a guy that says it's all pointless--that we're doomed--but I'm becoming that guy. We are told, in no uncertain terms, that we can not grow and/or tax our way out of the oncoming national meltdown, and yet, we can't even insist that an adult ween himself off of a literal nipple. We are done. By the time we accept that, "oh crap, maybe we have to cut our spending," we'll have already crossed into meltdown territory.
