I think the whole welfare system needs to be reformed, but I'll stick with welfare than having to rely on private charity.
    And I think you're wrong. Private individuals have always given more than the government does.

    I say tie unemployment benefits and welfare w/education, skills training and temporary work, ie., employer referrals for hard-to-fill jobs, then place a limit on how long people can stay on the such entitlement programs commensurate w/the job training and/or permanent employment. Then you wouldn't have to worry so much about things like Food Stamps accept for perhaps the elderly or disabled.

    I'm not saying social services (entitlement) programs aren't necessary because clearly they are. I'm just saying maybe it's about time the rules changed concerning these programs if we are to have a roburst economy and reduce the deficit at the state and federal levels.

    Doesn't sound like to bad of ideas Objective Voice. I think an even easier way of going about it, is let higher education be free for all. Everyone gets higher paying jobs, they pay more tax money and it's a win-win for everyone involved.

    If that were to happen, who would pay for the burial of those who starve to death?

    I believe you will find that politically as well as humanely, food stamps are the better proposition,

    yeah communists and socialists never killed anyone

    speaking of goats-you ought to read ARMED AND DANGEROUS by Coats. Its about the far right racist groups like the silent brotherhood. One cult in the Mid west had a goat that was used for "unnatural purposes" during the initiation ceremonies of a nutty murderous cult. when the feds raided the place all that was left was the goat who begged the agents to service it.

    I have never bought into the death panel bit but I can see in the near future some guy Yelling


    SOYLENT OBAMA IS PEOPLE!!!!

    I was referring to the use of scare tactics.
