About 1/3rd of working age, American men don't work anymore and for the most part are not even trying to do so.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/7-ways-men-live-without-working-in-america-092147068.html

There are around 30 million of the parasites. The rest of us have our money taken away to support them.

This can't go on.

What can be done about it.

Do you consider anyone who's not working a 9-5 job a parasite? Because if you read that article you would have seen many reasons for people not being counted on the unemployment roles and not all of them were because the people weren't working. If someone saves all their life and retires at 40, is that person a parasite? Are people who make a living fishing or trapping a parasite? What about ones who make enough to live playing the stock market? The shade tree mechanic that only works with cash? Because those were all listed as reasons for people not working in that article. Now you can make the argument that some of those people are tax cheats and you would be right... but does that make them a parasite? Not in my mind! I say more power to them!

Now if you're talking about the people that just sitting on welfare (which, interestingly, your article never even mentioned) then I would agree with you!

Only me. According to Jim, I'm a parasite because I don't buy health insurance. smile

Angela, you make a valid point...Many work for cash, etc...Some retired early due to good money practices.

I think it's the ones drawing a check dishonestly that people don't appreciate....The ones who refuse to pull their weight, and take advantage.


It's a reflection of their character, they are some of the worst people...Even worse than self righteous religous people, IMO.

People not paying taxes because they are paid in cash or just don't report income are tax cheats and therefore parasites. I bet a fair number are also welfare bums of one form or another.

Are tax cheats parasites? Because a person does not want to feed parasites, I'm not sure they are parasites.

Do they benefit directly or even indirectly from the infrastructure and support they receive from the government?

As Blaine said, people who cheat on their taxes are parasites on honest taxpayers.

Y'all two don't have to worry . Under Biden's spending plan if a poor fellow does a little side hustle to make extra funds and deposits $600 or more, it will be taxed. In the mean time the fat cats who can afford the accountants and tax lawyers to find the loopholes, will lower their tax burden.

Agree 100%. The author of that article is a complete tool. Lumping a military retiree who made good investments into the same group with disability scammers, then labeling them and six other groups as non-workers, because they do not get up, pack a lunch and punch a clock. I cannot believe the OP called 2 million military retirees parasites, because if he is agreeing with the article he posted, he did. Wow...just WOW!?!?


I know plenty of former military that are parasites. One in particular is rated with a 70 percent disability yet works out so much that he could be on the cover of Muscle and Fitness. Real disabled.

The group as a whole does not get a group pass.

Biden is working on having every financial institution report every account to the IRS that has 600.00 or more. So everyone that is so worried you will be relieved
