    Oh look, you don't support this so you are racist, homophobic, or hate the poor tactic. That is always fun.

    I wish I could say something good about liberals who love entitlements but if you look at my posts "I DON'T AND HAVE NOT HAVE ANYTHING GOO TO SAY ABOUT LIBERALS" Although (in your mind) you might want or WISH me to say something nice about you guys who LOVE entitlements. I have always believe that I am what I am and have money in the bank because of my hard work and not because the government has given it to me. If you want to learn something learn something about this and try it sometimes, if it's possible.
    Catch me if you can.

    What I said had nothing to do with the bill. It had to do with people showing their ass when it comes to kids going without, just so they can keep toeing their party line. As always, it's easy to talk big on the net. I'd LOVE to see them explaining to kids that thanks to mommy and daddy's ****-up, they don't get to eat.

    Yeah, really.

    Because this isn't about children going hungry for God's sake. It is about bloated government weaseling its way further into our lives with control, and spending our money haphazardly without accountability.

You say let the poor seek the charity of others, i.e., local churchs, community groups, corporations, yet here the government is setting aside grant funding specifically for non-profit charitable organizations to provide for the poor and you're upset about it?

    The impovished and the distitude look toward charitable organizations for financial aid and support. These organizations receive financial contributions in-part from city, state and federal governments. Reps/Convervs consistently insist that the poor should look to charities for assistance. Unless I've missed something, I don't see the problem with the fed providing partical funding in the form of grants to charities to provide aid to the poor. They do it for major industries, i.e., oil companies and farming co-ops. Why should charities be excluded? In most cases, it's matching funds particularly with large charities or corporations. At least the funding is limited; when it runs out it runs out, and the charity has to reapply for the grant. Compare that to the federal welfare system which Reps/Conservs argue is a "revolving door of entitlements", I'd say it's a fair trade off.

    The parents need to work instead of loafing around collecting entitlements and spending their money on booze and drugs.

    I was answering to Boo Radley. I have NO idea what you said because I was not conversing with you and that was not a follow up to any of your posts.

    You simply must read every post so you can see people saying that kids need to go without food if their parents can't afford to feed them. That's their ****-up, therefore. Kids too. No food for them.

    for that we can borrow from the chinese to incur additional debt for the next generation to inherit
    No we do not have to "borrow" a dime to keep the tax rates the same. What do you think is going to happen, we borrow 70billion dollars and say "here rich guys, take it." What Dems want to do is TAKE money from people to pay for their little programs that make people dependent.
    Please show me some hungry kids and if the libs want the unempoyment benefits extended once again, all they have to do is take it out of the stimulous fund which they refuse to do.
    The spending needs to stop.

    So you'd say that for everyone eh? Thanks but no thanks I'll make my own decisions with what to do with MY money. Since when does this idea that Person A is entitled to what Person B earns, and can tell him what to do with it a correct one?
