    ...assistance.

    I went to public schools.  I've attended public colleges.  I drive on public highways and roads.  I've been to public libraries many times.  I've been helped by police officers, by forest rangers, by fire fighters.  I've camped and frolicked in National and State Parks.  I've played in public city parks.  I have water that comes to my home that is stored in a public reservoir.  And that water is potable and safe to drink right out of the tap because the government makes sure it is so. I have my food inspected so that at the very least it isn't toxic when I buy it.

    Last year, I got a DPT booster shot...free from the government because pertussis has made a real emergence again and the government felt people needed to have a new vaccination for it.

    Other than that, I was once on unemployment for 5 months.

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
