    Really?? So one doesn't have to bust their ass to achieve the things I mentioned?? Then perhaps you might impart your wisdom to those who don't seem to be able to do it and have to rely instead upon the taxpayers.

    That's the wholly dishonest conserva-answer to anything regarding social spending -- that the poor will live like kings while everyone else toils in the salt mines.
    Except no one is actually saying that. Other than you.

    I can comprehend the skepticism or apprehension some folks have to this program -- what I can't understand is the "let 'em rot" mentality that SOME posters in this thread seem to have.

    You're working your fingers to the bone JUST to put a roof over your head?

    You know who taught me that liberals lie about just about everything? Liberals.

    Ah, the partisan hackery just shines right through.

    The idea that "liberals lie about just about everything" is a lie in and of itself. It's sheer nonsense.

    To the bone? No. But do I have to work hard and often for long hours to support my family? Yes. But if you know the easy way to achieve self-sufficiency, why aren't you spreading the word to the nations poor and homeless rather than wasting your time here?

    Way to completely lie about what I said. I guess you're used to it, though.

    No, actually, liberals lie all the time. Honesty is not a virtue to liberals, power and control are. To liberals, the ends justify the means. So lying is just a means to achieve what they see as greater ends.

    Uh huh.

    I love it when some conservative vomits up "THIS IS HOW LIBERALS REALLY ARE" on the forum. It's always good for a couple of chuckles when they work themselves up into a lather about how liberals are all just evil liars. Utterly laughable garbage.
