    Statist is a meaningless term co-opted by libertarians so they'd have something to contrast themselves with. If you're not an anarchist, you're a statist.

    why object to fingerprinting as a prerequisite to receiving such public assistance as housing
    while it is difficult for me to see the benefits of maintaining such a fingerprint database outweighing the expense of it
    if you cannot yourself afford to cover the cost of personal housing, being fingerprinted seems a small price to have to pay for it
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    I would also ask a question

    How different is this from requiring those on welfare to pass drug tests?
