    if you are living off the labor of others why shouldn't you have to pitch in and help society?

    why should the wealthy be punished by having to pay for people who give them nothing in return> if so why not the reverse?

    Why should they be treated like less than equal because they need helping hand? Should we also make em clean port a potty's? Most times a lot of folks out of work and poor feel as if they are stripped of their diginity just by having to seek help and you wish to add to that by treating them like 2nd class citizens? Have a heart please.

    No sir I have not and the topic is poor peeps here in USA. At least that is what I am talking about and have seen people who live under bridges and in boxes on side of streets.

    If you want them to be treated equally then they should have an equal stake in paying for what they take and use like the rest of them

    if you are on the public dole you are being treated like a second class citizen.

    and tough love sometimes is real love

    that's not from a lack of money for the poor. that is almost due to drug abuse or serious mental illness or both

    and do you have the objective research to prove that statement Turtle?

    And what does a welfare state do? Ask Buffett when his last welfare check arrived?
