That you think THAT is what made the country great explains why there are so many crippled and dependent pets and why so many of the 'new jobs' that have been created recently have gone to immigrants.
    Who has ever said that the poor and destitute made american great? Certainly not me and nobody with a modicum of intelligence would either.

    Its a shame you cannot see the poor and the working poor and the underemployed for what they truly are. NO, you have to see them thru the lens of freeloaders and lazy bums. I guess its way to hard for you to quantify exactly how many are freeloaders/lazy so you simply default to them all.

    History has shown that it wasn't Americans that share you attitude that made America great. It was those who recognized that with great strength and great wealth comes an obligation of compassion, understanding and a helping hand. You dismiss this on the false basis that all these people who pay no federal tax, who are on welfare, food stamps, unemployment, etc, need housing assistence, on disability, are freeloaders and lazy.

    World of difference between those that cant and those that wont. I'm all for helping those who cant and do more than you can imagine. I'm repulsed by those that wont. Not shocked that you lack the ability to see the difference.

    Yeah, I remember that. I also remember the Super Dome being evaced on landfall +2...after the rescue aircraft stopped taking ground from some of the people that were holed up in the Super Dome. I doubt you remember any of that.

    There are 49,000 people trapped in public housing in NYC, with no supplies. Not-a-bitch from the Libbos who were bashing Bush.

    Yet you appear unable to differentiate in your sweeping assumptions and caricatures of reality so far.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Where they are getting the provisions isn't the point. The problem is that they ran out of provisions less than a week into the rescue mission, and can't get a delivery set up over the weekend.

    I reckon union hands don't work weekends.

    You of course have some sort of example to prove that point, correct? I mean...I HAVE on numerous occasions STATED there is a world of difference between the two, have very clearly defined the difference, and actually act accordingly (and not pretend it is SO important that the government or someone ELSE should do something about it).

    The Libbos have been saying for years that welfare creates jobs and is good for the economy.

    Obama said just last week that progress goes from the bottom up.

    That's who!
