Unemployment is a *right*?!?!?!?!

I think not. *Rights* are "the pursuit
of happiness" and other such *rights*
that are mentioned in the U.S.
Constitution and in the U.S. Bill of
Rights.

Please don't misunderstand. I, too, am
unemployed and, after my severance pay
runs out, will also apply for
unemployment.

But unemployment is *not* a right!

I may get flamed for this, but I believe
that we Americans would be wise to stand
up for -- and take responsibility for --
our *rights* and be grateful for legal
privileges, such as driving,
unemployement, education (and so forth).
. . and I believe that we should learn
the difference!
