Are we talking of bandaids and welfare in the same thread?

welfare by itself as it stands now probably is, but used as a bridging tool along with the appropriate progressive education programs and massive investment into the infrastructure of impoverished communities, schools, along with microlending programs and sponsoring of community banks, blah blah blah i could go on forever, would be very useful.

thats all well and good, and I could possibly, and I say possibly be behind some of that. However,

I still don't want people that can work, use drugs, and have tons of children on welfare.....it's not that complicated.

Pelosi is the left's version of W, honestly. She can be a complete idiot and often she makes you wonder how in the world she got to where she is. Difference being that since she's on the left, mainsream media doesn't hammer her for it as much as they did Bush.

My favorite recent comment, when asked how something could be called 'bipartisan' when it had no Republican support, she said "Well just because they didn't vote for it doesn't mean they didn't have the opportunity to" :lol:

Or it could have been in part of this small thing: Bush was the president, she wasn't?

People who want welfare should pay for it out of their own wallets. Oops, then we wouldn't have welfare, would we?

Pretty much. Like KG pointed out, life experience.

What he's described is what they had in mind when it was conceived. But like a lot of other government programs, when it's applied in the real world, with real people, the results are something different altogether.

A lot of the problem is based in the wrongheaded assumption that all or the majority of people are basically good and will do the right thing. Reality is that a solid percentage of people will exploit and/or abuse the system for everything they can get.

If you don't create things that take that into account, you lose.

so the only counters are "lol you're young" and "but you see people aren't good, and this assumption allows me to not have to comprehend everything you proposed."

One day Fiz you'll grow up and find that a kind of forced sterilization of the poor is a natural part of life.

in that case, it's called "charity'.
