Can't say as I blame your parents for calling it quits.

I really anxious to hear how a person on the left thinks they are helping poor people by raising their wages while hitting them with every tax increase imaginable. User taxes such as gasoline, cigarettes, etc.... are extremely hard on those folks or did you not know that?
