    first, they can't read, or write.. now they are too stupid or just not worth the effort.
    tell me more fairy tales about Democrats wanting to help the poor become successful.. really.. i want to hear them.


    I thought it was just hosre**** rhetoric to say Democrats wanted to keep poor people enslaved on welfare...and here you are.. the living embodiment of that rhetoric.

    You seriously do have a limited capacity to determine the value of an idea....I find it amazing that you cant understand that your trying to give at a minimum a high school level class to people that you believe buy drugs with their welfare money...and your totally disregarding the magnitude and cost of trying to get millions of people to go to a class...It couldnt work under any circumstances and even if it could the cost would be phenomenal.

    I know you want this to be about me.. but it's not....
    control yourself.

    you have failed to present a coherent argument as to how money management classes are bad.. or will not work.

    present an argument or refrain from typing.

    no...actually, I understand that the best way to change a behavior is through education... obviously you disagree

    I do not dismiss the learning capacity of people who are poor, you do... in fact, I see them as in the greatest need for an education... you obviously do not.

    and no, i'm not talking about going to a class.. I'm talking about going to a series of classes... the cost of which would be negligible if the program were to be initiated with an eye towards efficiency.

    if you want further details, act as if you are open to an idea and we can discuss them.. but i won't entertain any more of your open disdain for poor people in lieu of a proper argument..

    You made this entire conversation personal thrilla...way back when you responded to my first generic post with a personal insult directed at me.
    So your playing the victim now makes you look more foolish than usual.
    Not only was your absurd idea to send drug addicts and millions of welfare recipients to a money management class bad it was totally ridiculous.
    Remember one thing...you dont give orders around here and especially to me...if anyone is going to stop typing it will be you and your decision.
    Im getting the feeling that you dont feel like your winning the game you started...remember the old saying thrilla..cant win them all you would do well to keep that in mind ...Now back to the important stuff
    You made a statement that I was a govt teat sucker and that you were rich and you DO NOT ACCEPT your military pension, social security or medicare...you stated verbatim I turn down my entitlements...I just would like to know how you accomplish that...do you put on The Elvis Presley 45 Return to sender Address unknown and hum to the tune...or do you tell the mailman to take it back...do you just tear the checks up and not cash them...or maybe you donate them to your neighborhood homeless shelter...Im just curious...I admire you so much for it...Loooolol...
