    lets straighten you out!

    first i did say you said anything..........i made the point that your sentence, by the way it is written makes it sound as if snap has been an ongoing program since 1939.


    here is what you said.......SNAP is a longstanding social program, going back to 1939

    long-stand·ing

    adjective: longstanding
    having existed or continued for a long time.



    so i stated that is not correct..snap has not existed or been a continued program since 1939........


    understand what you are posting...when you post

    second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

    so in other words ..........you were trying to "buff people" into thinking snap has been around as a program of the federal government since 1939.

    what i gained is you have no knowledge of things you post....example...when you stated i said force taxation was unconstitutional........you did not know what you were posting.

    A better question might be, "If you're on welfare do you always vote for a Democrat?"
    I vote for democrats and I've never collected a cent in welfare

    "Buff"?

    For someone so pedantically concerned with precise language.....oh, never mind, you won't, once again, understand the irony.

    I disagree. The politicians enrich themselves greatly while in office. And those who promise lots of freebies, goodies, and gratuitous money get the vote from those who hope to receive it. No politician who depends on the welfare vote and/or low income vote to keep his seat is going to stop promising those freebie or delivering on at least some of his/her promises.

    Wait..so if some people starved to death that would endanger the species?? Sorry, but if ten people in a group die in a car crash or whatever the rest of the group survives just fine. Sure, maybe a few guys that died are pretty important, but there is plenty of people around to take their place. These people we are talking about are poor, and while it might be really insensitive to say, not terribly important or terribly hard to replace.

    The thread was never about me, or my "errors", that is not the topic.

    I don't believe they do contradict each other so there is no reason to recognize that.
