I do volunteer work both at Hospice of Florida and at my local library in the Children's Programs, educate myself and still work I just don't find slaving away just for money as worth it. And my needs are simple a bed, internet and for me high speed dial-up is perfect, food, clothing (I shop at Goodwill and theHospice Thrift Stores a great deal), transportation (half price bus passes) and my library card. And a small amount of pocket money. The one thorn in my side is fraking health care even working alot of hours I couldn't get covered so why work that much. If I earn under a certain amount and have little savings the hospitals can't bill me and most providers that give me care give me cut rates so I'm better off uninsured.
What makes me an evil one Leisure Theory makes slacking a part of evolution that we simply due to our modern advantages don't HAVE to work so much if we don't want to. Some people want more things or a higher lifestyle so that is fine, its not a big deal for me if I have my basic needs covered.
On the health care bill the doctors, insurance companies, drug companies, states, hospitals all think they are getting SHAFTED and hate the bill that came out of the Finance Committee. So I am thinking this is a good bill since everyone feels fraked, that is usually a good sign.
