    Would you like me to link literally dozens of smart phones you can get for free with a two-year contract?

    Do you think about the bull**** you regurgitate or do you just parrot it without question?

    Maybe if they didn't spend money on booze, drugs, and cigarettes they could afford to buy food for their children.

    What pisses me off is people can come up with money for their vices but not for necessities.

    The cheapest food is often the most unheathy, which is why the poor suffer from obesity as well. It costs more money to eat healthy, not to mention more education, things the poor often don't have, than it does to eat healthy and know what eating healthy is.

    Not saying I agree with the 25% statistics that seems to incredible

    Hmm, welfare recipients use less drugs than the general population, according to the testing done via Florida's law...

    We do endless subsidies, soil banking, government purchase of ag goods and you wonder why we have food distribution issues? We have institutionalized price controls that ensure prince increases and poor distribution. Its a big circle, and food stamps are part of the problem as well. The bigger that program gets, the less efficiency we are likely to have. It circumvents supply and demand in a myriad of ways.

    A nerve? No. I'm just shocked at how many of you fit the stereotype.

    What I see is a complete failure of the welfare programs as they exist now. People don't need cash, they need food and a place to live.
    And dollar bills for the strippers.

    No...I actually agree with you. NO money should be given for welfare services. Where needed, and there is legitimate need, the rent, utilities, and even food should be directly allocated. People that have proven they cant provide for their own responsibilities damn sure shouldnt be given a visa card with cash.

    little wonder
    all those reich wing evangelical Christians posting while wearing their WWJD bracelets
    oblivious to Christ and his advocacy for the 'least among us'
    bunch of hypocrites
