[QUOTE=BrooklynBound;2841283]Morally, legally, or both?[/QUOTE]
Legally for now, right![/B] There are plenty of other things that I pay more for legally that I don't support. That's part of what makes this country great though, we participate as a collective, while being guaranteed extensive individual rights.
Somebody pays for the after school programs in your native Brooklyn to be open. I think whether you believe it or not, that's a debt that taxpayers are paying. I'm quite fine with it, if you aren't (I'll cut you a check if need be).
[B]Morally, maybe.[/B] That's internal value that only you can properly quantify. Hey, some people are happy that in the "land of opportunity" there are people who have historically and in some cases still are systematically disenfranchised, and are for all intents and purposes unable "to compete."
But you don't owe anything, Right? Why the interest in my thoughts?
