    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

She was 100% correct.
    I get quite a bit for staying home....I am retired.
    and somehow I think I earned it.....for a lot of years I went to work so I could have a retirement.
    For some of those years, my wife stayed home with the kids. She worked at home so I could work at a job. She shared the total work load, just didn't draw a pay check for those years. When the youngest started school, she got a job. I retired a few years ahead of her, so for those years she was the wage earner.

    So Ann Romney's path was a little different, perhaps even easier somehow.....
    Would any of us turn it down?

    They do have the right to those things unless they're incarcerated or have otherwise broken the law.

    Why would I send a random check to the government? If you're interested in that, do it yourself.

    How can that be? A lapse in judgement is a subconscious decision in which people have no control over.


    Submitting to peer pressure is also a choice. I chose not to. Are you telling me that I'm some sort of magnificent, fictional creature because I chose to not listen to my friends?
    You are using hindsight to look at the problem. If you, when you were in a situation of peer pressure, decided not to fall into peer pressure because you knew that peer pressure was the reason that you would make that choice then you are a lucky individual because most don't see that peer pressure in the moment.

    If only we had hindsight instead of forsight.

    It seems as though we agree that we should be helping the mentally and physically handicapped, yes.
    But not the career criminals? Do you honestly think that when they are committing a crime they are obsessing over how wrong the thing that they are doing actually is?

    I will clarify again; I think they should have the right to the aforementioned, I also would like to add medical attention to that list, even if they can't afford it.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Eh, public transport works fine for me.

    I can't speak for every situation here so don't take this subjectively, but the people that are on handouts have legitimate reasons for being on them. That is a completely different argument though.

    Yeah, I'm fine with that too . Just access to a way to get to and from a job.

    (BTW, good point)

    I've clarified this a little further, a right to transportation to and from a job/grocery store. Entertainment can even be in the form of a book... Idle hands my friend, Idle hands...
