Anyone heard of Bed Bugs?
Hell a dog can’t stay alive with to many fleas! Cut unemployment benefits & food stamps so people will go to work!
When you say parasites do you mean those who can’t get rich off of minimum wage or others like Madoff?
I don’t think that they even think this will last forever they t just going to milk it for the ride. Like a rollercoaster
ain’t that the truth! I am living your quote!!!
Truer words were never spoken.
@famousquotenet Exactly! NOW what do we do?
@famousquotenet aha, But the parasites are but few and yet they possess a voracious appetite. Furthermore, they are rich.
That society eventually becomes unsustainable & in the US it already is! @famousquotenet http://t.co/9WiTv3uitr
Do you mean city, state or federal?
As long as the HOST will stand it!1 know you got em 2 you gotta be smarter than a parasite 3 you gotta be willing to part.
@famousquotenet exactly ! So let’s get rid of the rich !
Couldn’t agree more !
I’m gonna start unfollowing people: people who judge, label, define another’s business. UnAmerican.

Aucune société n’a jamais prospéré parce qu’elle avait une importante et croissante classe de parasites 1/2
vivant hors ceux qui produisent.2/2
Ninguna sociedad ha prosperado porque tenía una clase grande y creciente de parásitos que viven de los que producen.
Nenhuma sociedade nunca prosperou porque tinha um grande e crescente classe de parasitas que vivem fora aqueles 1/2
amen to that.
and with the welcome of Cuba into our midst…we are asking for more of what is coming over our southern border.
It’s numerically impossible.
Result of Democratic party’s Progressive agenda is to create a caste system in USA, & keep’em in their place.
produce and create.
@ChewOnThisFM it also never prospered with an elite class of concentrated wealth holders who control the government

lol but it’s free. I started asking people where does the government get there money? And the don’t know
That would the newest movie on Vampires.
True words, but we also believe we must care for those among us who are unable to do for themselves; the sick and elderly.
Only the dictator of such a society, then they will run with all the spoils and, but where will they run South or East.
Hells bells. John Smith proved that with Jamestown. You’d think we’d have learned something from that Utopian fiasco.
@RIGHTZONE Rome fell for generously feeding the parasites.We will too.
And if a free society cannot help the many who are poor it cannot save the few who are rich
Good example is Presstitutes and the people of India.
@analiensaturn referring to Jews as parasites, albeit true, is awfully anti-semitic! #666zogillion
Eventually the host dies, then so does the parasite but, the parasite reaped the rewards of the host. Parasites don’t care
