    sort of, yes.

    I wouldn't go on the corner to do it. I would visit churches and other places to seek out aid.

    Are you aware of what the 'cycle of poverty' is?

    Well to put this post into context, JFK was someone whose parents essentially help him buy a Senate seat (using money of which a significant portion was, shall we say, obtained using less-than-aboveboard means) and then rode that all the way to the Presidency with little to no experience in much of anything.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Fair enough, but it doesn't change the discussion.

    During hard times, churches and charity organizations don't have a lot of money to spend on charity either.

    forced charity is a poor solution.
