I recently met someone who gets all of their healthcare for free. Paid by the state. 

Someone else is getting thousands of dollars in disability payments for an accident that he was in, while working for a private company. Paid by the state. 

Someone else is on unemployment and has been for years. She looks here and there for a job but gets a check every month. Paid by the state. 

Someone else teaches dodge ball and basketball at a school. She also gets a paycheck on a regular basis. Paid by the state. 

Someone else repairs airplanes for the government. He also gets a paycheck on a regular basis. Paid by the state. 

Someone else is struggling to find a place to live while taking care of her baby. She gets grocery money on a regular basis. Paid by the state.

Someone else once repaired airplanes, years ago, in Vietnam. He lives on the streets now but does get some help with rent. Paid by the state. 

Someone else works at a fire station. When an emergency comes, he's ready. He also gets a regular paycheck. Paid by the state. 

Someone else is a member of a country club in Los Angeles. He golfs. The club has received millions of dollars over the years of tax exemptions. Paid by the state. (Tax exemptions and sports are an all around interesting topic.) 

Someone else once sold cocaine. She’s serving a life sentence for that crime (only that crime) and everything in her life is covered. Paid by the state.  

Who has "earned" their money and who has not? Who deserves it and who does not? Who should get more and who should get less? Who's receiving a handout and who is receiving a paycheck? Who do we get angry about and who do we not? Who do we think will make us "socialist" and who will not? 

 

short story. one.
