    Nyet Komrade, lets not pick on the little girls, lets just say anyone who has a sense of entitlement, to something they have not earned and don't deserve, but I agree with you, lots of people fly some "victim flag" when the law more than amply compensates them for their imagined injuries!

    I'm more than Blessed, but hope you guys will pray and have good thoughts for my little brother Jim, who is now fighting pancreatic cancer, after paracarditis and having the two outer layers of his heart peeled off, and two subsequent pacemakers, heart attack, cervical fusion in his neck from being t-boned by a drunk, and now this latest,,, he's become a very faithful man, but wonders why he has suffered these difficulties, now with a potentially fatal diagnosis, he's still trying to work every day, and provide for his family, and for his employee's and employer who depend on his not inconsiderable knowledge and genius in animal husbandry...

    He's actually rather famous in China and Japan among pork producers, and has pioneered a German system to improve swine gestation and improvement of mortality, and yes he continues to host both Chinese and Japanese pork producers...

    Well I tried the imgur community for two weeks. I can't stand it..the cursing, rude and very ignorant comments. False accusations. Not to mention the underhanded racist comments. No more will any of my photos be public on imgur.

    False or misleading news especially fear mongering false news.

    A few weeks ago there were several news reports claiming that tax refunds would be delayed because of the federal Government shutdown

    Your Tax Return May Be Delayed as IRS Workers Go on ... - Observer

    Even with IRS staffers returning, tax refunds may be delayed | fox8.com

    Shutdown Roundup: Your Tax Refund May Be Delayed Due to ...

    In my case none of these misleading stories were true. I received my Federal tax refund yesterday. It took only nine days to be deposited in my checking account. That is the quickest I have ever received any tax refund. I filed my taxes on line at zero cost to me.

    Which should encourage each of us to "protect" the very brotherly atmosphere on SDF, our nice big sister Defense Talk is kinda snarky and snotty, that's why I set up camp here on SDF...

    I would hope that we can refrain from "getting ugly" with each other, (yes, I've done that too), (Sorry Equation), and I do consider you a friend brother, even though our politics are 180 out of phase...

    And BD, you ran SDF with an Iron Fist, but you created and fostered a climate of good will, I'm so thankful to have you back even as one of "us"... Jeff Head, Siege Crossbow, Deino, and our other mods continue to invest as many hours as they possibly can to keep SDF pumped out, holes welded shut, and a steady course..... it means a lot Gentlemen, and thanks for the love and commitment each of you bring to SDF....

    We've got great Mod's gents, but it really depends on each of us to show some respect and honor to the members of the Greatest Forum on the World Wide Web, and thanks Webby!

    I'm glad you received your refund in a timely manner BD, and for those who don't know, a refund is your money, that you overpaid the US Federal Govt, and they are still honorable enough to send it back to you each year, it says a great deal for the ultimate integrity of the US Gov, and the men and women who do serve this country with honor and good will!

    So if you have a good accountant, and you don't overpay, you don't get a refund, don't cry, just thank your accountant, and for those of you who have to pay taxes on April 15th, thanks for paying your fair share!! I myself over withhold, and send the Gov more than I owe each month, so that I Don't have to cough it up on April 15th.....

    Those of you who live in Central Obamastan better hold on to your ASS, JB and Mike Madigan are going to stik it to ya! sorry, kinda like that sorry Obama did, fining you for not having enuf money to buy his stooped health insurance!

    Thank God my employer provides 90% of my health insurance, and allows me to add my daughters, all at less than $500 dollars a month, about a third of what Obamacare would charge me for a pretty sorry insurance policy!

    Gong Xi Fa Cai to all my Chinese American & to all Americans for the Year of the Pig". Let me share what Confucius expounded: "If I were to choose to sum up my whole philosophy, I should say: allow no evil in your thoughts" ....... It's similar to the old adage "Evil to those who evil think" .

    No health care is "FREE", you can pay an excessive amount on your taxes, and that money will be spent at your own Govt's discretion and they will give health insurance to whom they please, or you can pay for much better health insurance which you choose, which meets your needs, and pay far, far, less taxes...

    Many, Many, Many Canadians and Europeans, visit the US to receive health care, that they have determined is much better, and much more timely, even with the very complex rules under Obamacare, which have increased health care costs approx. 4 X what they were prior to Obamacares implementation..

    In fact people from all over the world who are able come to the US to receive what in their perception is the best healthcare on the planet...

    so NO, healthcare in Canada is not free, somebody is paying for it, and its NOT the Canadian Government. They tax business and citizens, and then distribute the funds according to the Govts desires and mood???

    Health care in Canada is paid for with taxes on individual citizens.

    https://www.aimseducation.edu/blog/us-vs-canadian-healthcare-differences/

    I think we are off topic here...

    Something that bothers me? The fact That I have to pay for medicare even though I get free care from the VA with a small co-pay for prescriptions. When I lived in San Diego I just went to the Naval Hospital for 100% free care.

    I'll buy my own health insurance, and continue to enjoy my much greater access to health care and freedom to keep and bear arms...

    In fact, Canada would NOT offer healthcare services to US citizens.... they wouldn't even allow me to immigrate, to go to work for a Canadian company, much less consume medical services, LOL!
