    mamby pamby, bleeding heart, hand wringing is not going to solve the problem. hard problems sometimes require hard solutions. and if it requires that some people suffer now so that all people don't suffer later, so be it.
    Well, I never saw that, but no, it isn't better, and yours are not being punished when we help them. It's just silly to say they are. And we, people, have always handled hard time better when they come together than when they divide. You have alot wrong my friend. Sadly.

    Very different situation. Not a proper comparison at all.

    No, it's not. One the cat was ill, and ther eis a humane way to deal with that.. Second, the illness can be transmitted. Neither things is true about helping children. Very different situations.

    poverty and lack of ambition/motivation is an illness that is spread from generation to generation. you are doing no one any favors by perpetuating the system.

    No, you can't catch laziness. Sorry, that's just a stupid proposition. It is also factually inaccurate to suggest all poor are lazy or lack motivation. And feeding children a warm meal once or twice a day doesn't perpetuate anything but needed aid, and maybe some kindness.

    i did. when you posted this unfounded tripe:
    ... but far too many people cry unable, when they are really just unwilling.
    which caused me to ask you to point out which of us has been posting, advocating the provision of assistance to those who are unwilling to care for themselves. you indicate there are many. point them out
