    You can dodge the issue with semantics all you want, but you know as well as I do that not all poor people are poor because they're disabled and can't provide for themselves, or they got ****ed over by the man. There are poor people out there that are poor because they don't have the gumption to improve their station in life.

    That did not answer a thing I asked. Try again.

    I do commend you for attempting to be civil where ockham couldn't be bothered.

    That's not name calling. And when I take up the habit of getting debate tips from the weakest debator here at DP, I'll be sure to ask you or ockham.

    You guys act like the answer is so simple. "Oh well...derrrrrr...just stop being poor."

    It's asinine fantasy approach to a real problem.
    How about Obama do something for Jobs so they can by food. Welfare is not the answer jobs is.

    I have only presented one position so far and that's that those on public assistance should be required to drug test.

    Can you try arguing that or presenting a position or are you just here to troll with your buddy Ockham?

    By all means, Partisan...show us these great debate skills you seem to have been hiding away since day one...

    You started the insults, not me. You dodge the issue, not me. You name call me as a troll. Then you accuse me of not being civil. You accuse me of not providing solutions, I pointed out your mistake where I did. One day, I'm hoping you'll actually discuss the topic and grow up. Not sure what pissed you off today, but it's not me. So go kick someone else's dog.



    Back to the topic before such a rude / ignorant interruption:

    If the system is broken at the State level, there's not much the Fed can do about it. It's up to the States and I'd argue that it's in the States best interest to NOT continue to throw money or food in this case, at the problem, but to address it as I stated: Cut off a portion of the aid and motivate those with REAL problems to solutions with educational tools, skill building tools etc... those who are simply parasites on the system should be cut off and join the rest of society. That may not work well with the politics or morality of some, but it's a road to reducing hunger and a potential solution to lifting people out of poverty.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Blah blah blah, troll troll troll, blame someone else. You're such a good lil' conservative with the personal responsibility, aren't ya?

    That's fine for adults but in case you forgot, this thread is dealing with children in these situations.
