    Yep. The welfar program was a terrible option but it was better then letting people of the time die off of starvation. What should have happened is a required detailed work placement transition program built that placed early welfare user into a private sector job so they could be weened off the program rather then allowing them to choose on dropping their quality of life to stay on the program forever.

    You went from, and I'm paraphrasing, "welfare being scheme specifically developed to create and perpetuate a class dependent on the dems for handouts" to "political parties try to do stuff that helps them stay in power".

    The latter I agree with. Politicians do things to keep power. I don't agree "dems" specifically created the welfare program with the objective to build an economic class dependent on them.

    Maybe they didn't see it that way initially, but it quickly became apparent to them that it was a side benefit.

    And don't confuse welfare with charity - they're not the same thing.

    Re: NAACP backs report that ties racist groups to tea party

    Look, I'm a white, Christian, conservative, male raised in the south. If there are any people who want to think that the Tea Party is grounded in racism, I beg you, PLEASE understand it isn't. I will admit, there is still racism out there, and it's shameful. I believe we're all equal in God's eyes and only GOD can judge. However, let's turn the tables. If an Africian American says oh yea, I voted for Obama cause he's black, I ain't voting for that old white man, it's accepted by the mainstream. If I as a white man had said, I'm ain't voting for a black man, well, the mainstream would have happily handed me over to the mafia, and we all know it! Was it not racist the other way around with a black saying I'm not voting for a white man WITHOUT EVEN GIVING ONE PASSING GLANCE at the issues? Honestly.

    Thanks for reading

    sorry dude, everyone knows that you can't be a racist unless you are white.

    That's why there will always be racism. until the minorities admit that they are part of the problem, there can be no solution.

    The NAACP is the most racist organization in America since the Ku Klux Klan.

    Their doctrine in five words: "Fear Whitey, and vote Democrat."

    That very well may be but wasn't what was presented. Welfare program is definitely perverted by politicians now. I highly doubt it was a "scheme specifically developed" for political power.

    Re: NAACP backs report that ties racist groups to tea party

    Just so I'm clear on my stance to the OP. I think the Tea Party IS NOT racist and I do think NAACP IS racist.
