    the continued feeding of the poor does nothing for the country as a whole and merely creates more dependents by making failure comfortable. such funding should cease to include anyone other than those truly disabled or unable to help themselves and the rich who fund most of the government should stop funding parasites and their advocates who use our tax dollars to take more and more from us

    Well at least you are forthright in your belief that millions should die simply so some can live more comfortably - well they would other than the anarchy that would result if your beliefs actually became policy. A highly unlikely possibility I would venture to say.

    why do you make claims about stuff I didn't say? I said to cease to provide for those other than THOSE TRULY DISABLED OR UNABLE TO HELP THEMSELVES

    and people like me give tons to charity

    if the safety net was confined to those who need it, that would not generate enough votes for the dems

    that is not relevant

    one someone has succeeded telling them they should be penalized and that is justified because they are still more successful than millions does not justify such parasitic behavior.
