Urban Dictionary: gaper
Not taking sides, 'cause I wasn't there and most everyone needs lessons in communication at times, myself certainly included.
But for perspective, if we are talking about the banks, we can talk about ownership and access, but were it not for commercial trade regs and such, the people that owned the banks would really own the waters, right, so to a certain extent, without the commercial interests, there would be much less private access. Commercials have some power and as most of you know, the individual or even the moderate sized group has next to none.
My understanding of the public teat, I think, is different than the one that used it. I thought the public teat was folks like forest rangers, teachers, road workers, people on unemployment, parents taking neighbors' wealth without significant financial need. and the like. People that sell a product or a service to the general public are just participating in supply and demand economics. Now the fact that not everyone can go get a guide license or that you even need one at all is a public contortion of an otherwise free market concept.
So I am assuming that the person that wrote that, is not a public employee, has never taken unemployment insurance without paying it back, paid the full cost of the education of his own children (did not simply let his neighbors do so because he could get away with it), has paid back the cost of his own primary, secondary and other education (or someone else has done so voluntarily for you) and certainly does not plan on taking any social security unless he is in critical financial need. These be the money teats.
