    92 posted something on the 'Dumbed Down' thread that brought to mind a experimental study I read of some years back. It was conducted by Otto Kroenig, an Austrian animal psychologist in 1965. The results of the study were published in Der Spiegel in 1966 but I have not been able to find anything published directly by Kroenig himself. I read of the study on http://www.fee.org/the_freeman/detail/of-birds-and-men#axzz2ceHKsQ3e and its implications have stayed with me.

    The article goes into a little detail as to how and why the act of making the birds dependent on a supplied source of food caused a complete collapse of the colony. It's not very long and certainly worth the 5 minutes it takes to read it.

    If the study does prove to be true then it would really explain why we are so far in debt.
    The USA can't take care of everyone.
    I have a friend from Africa and he said that everyone in America should be so thankful.
    He said in Africa if you don't work - you don't eat - you don't have place to sleep - and he said in America - you can do nothing and they give you money to let you buy food and housing, but who is paying for all of this?

    He knows that the tax payers pay the bill , but he said why do I need to pay for other people when I'm the one working so hard and they are not.
