    I know a guy who worked for the first two months of year. I work with his live-in girlfriend who complains about him, but gets very angry and defensive if you suggest she should leave. He quit his job because he didn't like his boss. Sat on his ass the rest of his time. Cashed in his 401(k), living off his credit cards, living off the girlfriend, not even really looking for work either. It's weird. I have no idea how he actually gets by.

    Anyway, she told me he pays no income tax, yet he's getting ~$4,500 return because of the Earned Income Credit and a bunch of tax credits for his dependent children.

    She says he's going to use the money to fix up his beat-up old motor home that needs a bunch of repairs.

    Oh, he's a veteran too so you're not allowed to say anything bad about him. Those are the rules. And not that it matters, but he's also gained like 40 pounds since he left his job.

    You are in love with this woman and think you would be a better mate. I smell jealousy.

    I could list a more. He is very verbally abuse to her, he has no friends, he is a likely online porn addict.

    The thing is, the only time she seemed to ever get upset with him is when he asks her for money. Everything else she seems to tacitly accept.

    He is winning. God Bless America. It used to be Darwinism would weed these people out of the gene pool.

    a timely Yakov Smirnoff reference should hit the spot about now

    We are so backwards.

    Why should anyone get a credit for having a kid... blows my fucking mind.

    I should get a credit for saving the country money by not needing free education for my kids.
