    Isnt the point of the military supposed to defend our country?

    By having a "defense industry" that is heavily employed does that mean we have to go around invading countries left and right and start wars all across the globe?

    You have to have a high-school education to be on welfare? I can see a lot of problems with that .
    Ask Florida how their drug testing for welfare worked out.


    The idea that by simply having a child that you can not (or will not) care for somehow entitles you to gov't funding is INSANE social policy and has contributed to (if not outright caused) a HUGE increase in out of wedlock childbirth; current rates for out of wedlock child birth in the USA are 70% for blacks, 50% for hispanics and 30% for whites.

    Conservatives do, today's Republicans are far from conservative. They're just assholes under a common name

    You know, you made a Freudian slip in your first sentence. I think you're right--it may be incredibly dumb to try to figure out why conservatives hate welfare more than just about anything else on the planet. Doesn't mean I'm not gonna try.

    And I'm sorry if the truth of the rest of my post offended you. Guess I should learn to lie.

    I wonder the amount of people that actually enjoy living off welfare.... Im guessing its a very slim amount.
    But point being no matter what kind of gov assistance program, a slim amount are going to take advantage of that.
