    Sure it's an assumption.

    My first statement in that comment was a question.

    I don't know what the actual need is, and I agree with you that there's probably some degree of line loss and a greater degree of abuse.

    But even if we assume that the need is only $300 billion rather than $1.1 trillion we're still left with a situation where $30 billion only gets us through a couple of months.

    Then we have to make assumptions about whether or not private charity and philanthropy would step in and fill the need.

    If it does, great.

    If it doesn't we've got people dying of starvation on the side of the road in the tens of millions.

    I don't know if that's a bet we could or should take.

    But let me ask you. Does all that BS, because that is all it really is regarding government welfare, take away from the fact that this guy was doing a good deed and people started to trash him for doing so? Come on.
    No, doesn't take away from it at all.

    Good on him.

    He's a good Christian guy and is to be admired for what he's done.

    And $30 billion isn't useless. It is a huge sum of money.
    It's a huge sum of money to have in a personal investment portfolio.

    It's a pittance on the global, or even national, economy.

    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    But on a broader scale it speaks to the wider lunatic fringe conservative notion that the government shouldn’t be helping people at all; that help for the need should be entirely addressed through private charity and philanthropy.

    And my argument is that private charity and philanthropy would be wholly insufficient given the scope of the problem and historical precedent.
    The problem is you have this errant belief that conservatism is about not helping people, and this is why you fail miserably. You believe that PEOPLE are pathetic, incapable and REQUIRE assistance that only "Government can bring".

    Have you ever stopped to consider that by taking enough money to "deal with the issues" you're really just making things worse?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I neither believe nor have said any such thing.

    I don't think conservatism is about not helping people.

    But I don't believe that it is about helping people either.

    I believe that there are a minority of people on both/either side of the aisle who will make more than the most uselessly token effort to help people and that the majority couldn't really care less whether or not people get help.

    ...and this is why you fail miserably.
    At what?

    You believe that PEOPLE are pathetic, incapable and REQUIRE assistance that only "Government can bring".
    I believe that a great many people are pathetic and incapable, yes.

    I believe that they could do with assistance, yes.

    Though I don't think it's required in moral terms.

    I believe it's required if those of us who are able to maintain a decent standard of living don't want to live in what appears to be a third world ****hole.

    I believe that only the government will actually provide it because historical precedent indicates that to be the case.

    Before government stepped in and assumed the role of helping people most indigent/impoverished/homeless people got no help at all, or so little help as to be practically useless.

    If you disagree then prove it to me.

    Provide some examples of modern day nations where all public assistance is handled through private charitable/philanthropic means and where the results are something to aspire toward, and then provide examples from American history where Americans reached out and took care of the most pathetic and least capable among the population on a large (national) scale to a degree sufficient to allow them not to live like animals.

    I'm certainly not going to trust that people will do it just because some anonymous guy on the Internet claims that that's what conservatives do when every indication is to the exact contrary.

    Have you ever stopped to consider that by taking enough money to "deal with the issues" you're really just making things worse?
    Worse than things were for the poor prior to 1930?

    It reminds me of Emilie Parker's fund raising announcement. Since Police on 12/14/2012 blocked access to Sandy Hook Elementary, I don't think Robbie Parker could know his daughter's death that day and inform his community friend in UTAH to open a donation account in bank and establish a fund raising page in Facebook. It was a pre-planned project. Money oriental is one characteristic of the Feds. They used to use the firm controlled by them.

    I figured you would have it scattered all over the net.

    More study found: the signature of two receipts are from different people while they all use the same stamp of "tips for Jesus". Obviously it's the supvisors of different area were distributing payment to informants for the same organization.

    You are incredibly dishonest in this post! Others have pointed out the details as to why, but I wanted to make the accusation clearly. This kind of dishonesty is an insult to your fellow users of this forum.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
