    Or do you just expect others to foot the bill?
    I expect you to take personal responsibility and pay your share in taxes just like I do.

    Why are you dodging the question? How much financial assistance do you give to those you think are entitled to welfare? You expect others to pay. How much do you pay? You pay taxes, that's it?

    $46 million in taxpayer contributions is being quite generous with other people's money.

    If you think people deserve more welfare than they get from tax payer contributions then you should provide more assistance.

    Not really just an example of what I saw repeatedly as a kid, and throughout my life... fortunately the wiki edits were caught quickly I will find appropriate links etc... but all you have to do is look at the way the left treats Allen West, or Alfonzo Rachel... it's the same thing over and over again

    I couldn't help but notice the way Allen West treats the left, either. He came onto the scene with both guns blazing so you'll have to excuse the Left if they defend themselves.

    Re: The Food Stamp President

    Kandahar, I had a long, thorough reply written, and when I went to post, the damn website told me my token had expired or something.

    So I will have to get to you later, and simply leave you with this. When we get told that saying that the President plays golf is racist, yeah, we're going to tune you out.

    ...

    MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that?

    LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. They find every way they possibly can to –

    BASHIR: Lawrence — don’t you think — don’t you think that what he’s really trying to do is to suggest that the president is not paying attention to the central issues that come with the responsibility he has? Is he really – Mitch McConnell really making a connection with Tiger Woods who, of course, has become infamous for chasing various cocktail waitresses around Las Vegas and so on?

    O’DONNELL: Martin, there are many, many, many rhetorical choices you can make at any point in any speech to make whatever point up want to make. If he wanted to make the point that you just suggested and I think he does want to make that point, they had a menu of a minimum of ten different kinds of images that they could have raised. And I promise you, the speech writers went through, rejecting three or four before they land order that one. That’s the one they want for a very deliberate reason. That — there’s – these people reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can find in every one of these speeches.

    BASHIR: You really believe that about Mitch McConnell?

    O’DONNELL: I know these people are insensitive. I know the speechwriters are insensitive. I know the way they work. They do not have the same sensitivity level that other speechwriters do. But when you get to the Tiger Woods reference, there were people in the speech writing room, I know this, without a shadow of a doubt, who said wait a minute, do we really want to go there? Do we really want to go to Tiger Woods and the vote in the room was yes, we do. Mitch McConnell agreed to do it.

    BASHIR: Wow. Things are getting lower and lower by the day....

    Re: The Food Stamp President

    I do not think it is racist but to the extent the implication is that Obama would prefer food stamps for citizens as opposed to good paying jobs I think it is grossly unfair and does not take into account the economy not of his making has made them necessary for mamy.
