No, no. Only the first line of my first post was to do with Kair and communism; I was merely remarking on how his words (effectively saying he was spoiled for having an extra bathroom, but that everyone involved was at fault) seemed, to me, to fit with the fact that he set his avatar as the communist flag.The rant, the flame, the screaming, that was to everyone else, which I'm sure I made clear by writing 'And to all those people screaming 'go bak 2 slp fgt', meaning that I had turned to a different audience and was not addressing Kair anymore, but I did not want to make a triple post.AxCx said:Nobody should need to earn there way into having a decent living. EVERYONE should have an equally decent living, from the start.Lexodus said:You think I don't know that?Kair said:You have some serious issues.
People see what I have now, where I live, and they think, 'oh, he's just some snotty rich kid', which is basically what you're doing here. They don't know that we were so poor, in one house I had to have a room remodelled out of a walk-in closet just so we had enough space for a kitchen. They don't know we've moved house around 13 times, or that we've earned our way to what we've got, which is a fantastic place. People see what we have now, and make assumptions, and that leaves me bitter, but this is not even that. You're all doing this, going completely ape-shit, over one bathroom? I mean, not you personally; I just quoted you because your avatar fit with the standpoint you took, but the rest of these guys...
Yeah, I have issues. Lots of issues, but I'm getting over them, and I don't do what's going on here just because I see somebody else as more advantaged as me.
Its ironic that you choose too quote and lightly flame a communist before going on to whine about how poor you might have been a couple of years ago. Kair is right, the free market has to go (the problem with the free market is that it serves only itself and a select few people, not society as a whole. Well, thats part of the big big problem that is the free market anyway).
Besides, That's NOT irony. Irony is "You made a Halo Thread on a gaming website? That's the most original thing I've seen all day".
And besides that, are you not now whinging that nobody should have to work hard to earn a decent living? It's that kind of thinking that makes the bloody dole bludgers continue doing whatever the fuck they do instead of, you know, going out and looking for a fucking job and easing up on the rest of us. There was a special on one of those Panorama-esque shows a fews years back, finding this kind of person and exposing them, and in it we were introduced to a wonderful kind of person who sat at a computer for twelve hours a day doing nothing, but couldn't work because he 'has ADHD'. It's people like that that make me sick, and rob my old man of 50% of his earnings at todays tax rates.
