I'm a corporate attorney, but nice try.
If McDonald's was an example, it's a pretty terrible example. McDonald's is one of the largest hirers in the U.S., and they couldn't even hire 10% of applicants.
Conversely, what would happen if Adam Lanza didn't have access to guns? A whole lot more people would have survived than would have been killed if that mother didn't have a gun.
Do you see how stupid such individualized arguments are?
You must be an awful attorney, again taking things out of obvious context. I see handicapped people working at public but see able body people sitting at home collecting playin video games because a job at publix is below there ego.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
The VAST majority of entitlement benefits go to the disabled, elderly, or working households - presumably, all those constitute people who NEED welfare. The "entitlement society" catchphrase is a myth designed to scare a particular demographic.

Woo, personal attacks! Good argument, bro.
Your observations are hardly indicative of a general trend. Can you show me with any sort of actual statistics that there are enough jobs for everyone? You seem to be insinuating that unemployment is a choice - am I correct in assuming that you view unemployment strictly as a choice?
I love how you view your personal experiences as if they're indicative of nationwide trends.
How often is "often"? What percentage of applicants does your company hire?
Also, I'll just point this out: the number of people who "ride the system" is a whole lot less than you make it out to be.
In both cases the guns were nearly a means to an end. You should hold Adam Lanza responsible, but it sounds like you're blaming the weapon.
That gun would have done that poor Loganville woman no good at all ... if it wasn't there and even less good if she didn't have the courage to pull the trigger. In both cases, it was people who made decisions.
Again, got any evidence to back that up?
If you are of able body and mind and don't have a job then IMO its by choice. Links to prove anything, it's statistics using lazy people with poor work ethics that don't want to get a job. And many "unemployed" work for cash which also helps to fudge the numbers.
I'm glad I don't base real life strictly by links on the Internet.
You keep providing zero evidence for your point. Anecdotal evidence is nothing - if you're going to keep asserting this point as true, you should be able to provide something more than stories from your own experience as evidence that "more people are unemployed by choice than lack of jobs available."
Can you give me anything other than anecdotal evidence?
I'll take this sentence by sentence.
If you are of able body and mind and don't have a job then IMO its by choice.
So, all able-bodied unemployed people are lazy and are actively choosing not to earn any money? Fantastic analysis.
"Links to prove anything, it's statistics using lazy people with poor work ethics that don't want to get a job."
This is literally nonsense. You messed up at least one word somewhere in there.
"And many "unemployed" work for cash which also helps to fudge the numbers."
What do you mean by "many"? Got any evidence of this?
Who owns the clubs and shops?

Worked at a gas station/grocery store/feed store(those of you in the south know what I'm talking about) in high school. Most frustrating thing that happened on daily basis were people buying $20 in candy/chips then turning around and spending more on beer and tobacco. Ebt cards are so abused. Then you look outside and they're driving a nicer car than I am. America protecting lazy people since 1776.
Roman Numerals = mighty slayer of straw men.
I have a master's degree in political science (although I chose not to pursue that profession, i.e., academia...instead, like you apparently, I chose the law). You constantly asked for "evidence," as though you are sparring in a court room shouting objections. Apparently peer-reviewed and methodologically-sound research and studies are the only thing that you consider "evidence" when it comes to the societal problems discussed in this thread, which backs you into a very intellectually dishonest corner if taken to its logical conclusion: if such studies or research (i.e., "evidence") do(es) not exist in the social science literature as it stands today, then there must be no proof that any given theory or hypothesis as to whether a causal relationship exists is true. Because it can't be proven, then it must not exist at all. All anecdotal comments must be cast aside as non-empirical retard-speak as well as those who utter them.
You do realize how utterly ignorant and ridiculous that position is right? An entire liberal arts major (History) and its various permutations are built almost solely upon anecdotal evidence and hearsay. Yet no one in their right mind would contend that in light of this obvious deficiency that somehow "history" as a subject matter is not important or legitimate. You understand that right?
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
