    This isn't the 70's. Times have changed, and working at a shady sweatshop would have been something to reconsider before her injury. That's not my or anyone elses responsibility.

    I don't care, the company would have to fight back. Either way, taxpayers from around the country don't pay for it.

    Not stealing, a reflection of society and what must be done.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    I'm OK with people not having to pay for others.

    Kids would most likely go to an orphanage. It isn't pretty by any means.

    There is no excuse for not helping the most desperate among us in a country with more than enough food and resources to go around. Civilization was created so we could help each other survive. You can't use public roads and other services provided by our society and expect to not have to contribute anything back. Your life is comfortable partially because you worked for it and partially because you were lucky enough to be born in the United States. You do owe a debt to the society that has allowed you to thrive, whether you believe it or not. You will pay taxes and some of those taxes will go towards helping people that desperately need help. Get over it.

    But they're not desperate. They just choose to sponge off others.

The entire point of civilization was for people to come together and help each other survive.

Your life is comfortable partially because you worked for it and partially because you were lucky enough to be born in the United States.

    Will I?

    Social security is bound to end. Welfare is getting cut in Arizona. Maybe something can come it. Something good. Who knows.

    Doesn't mean we won't stop fighting it.
