    actually in many cases what it does is creates less incentive to find work

    historically the poor tend to stay poor because they tend to make poor life choices.

    hmmmm should I go to class and pay attention or should I cut and go smoke pot behind the gym......

    should i restrain myself and not have sex with random guys or should i have 3 kids by the time i am 19....

    should I sit on the front step of the project drinking a 40 and smoking newports or should I apply for a govt sponsored job program or join the military.....



    face it, my friend, as long as we continue to make excuses for them....the poor are going to remain poor.


    give a man a fish and he is going to expect you to give him another one tomorrow. insist a man learn to fish.....


    yes, I am sure that there are some people who are poor through no fault of their own....but they are definitely not in the majority.

    Your opposition to welfare is pretty simple, as far as I see it: You're not willing to spare your income to help a group of people you feel detached from. To once again cite Harrington, the poor are invisible to you, something standard in this country.Step back a second and look at what you're saying: Refuse assistance to those in extreme poverty, as it will give them incentive to find work.

    But you've just sunken to partisan driveling. Find someone else to debate.

    So let me get this straight. You want to apply natural selection to human beings, saying that if one can't find work, they will die?

    apparently waas thinks that the poor have no control over their own lives or destinies and that if the GOP would only stop holding them back and give them enough money everything would be peachy.

    while those of us who live in the real world think that the poor need to take responsibility for their own lives and the choices they make

    NOpe but people will try harder to find work when they don't have a public tit to suck on

    I am a big supporter of private charity and give tens of thousands to private charitable causes from funding the education of smart but poor kids to helping treat badly burned children
