Your wife can't find work. Your solution for the poor? Get work.

Uh...................................................................................

Well so much for hoping you would catch the point of changing the politics involved in the job market.

Whining that some strawman wants an indoor pool when a conservative strawman keeps your father from having hot water tells me all I need to know about you.

Again, get back to me when your college days are done.

Please, point out where I said "those evil conservatives are the reason my dad doesn't have hot water"? Don't worry, I'll wait.

My point that whole time was that there are honest, hard-working men and women out there who are jobless/poor/etc who just cannot find work; or, when they do, they get laid-off unexpectedly.

Seems like you're.....building.....a strawman.......<_<

the welfare queen is a myth and i use it as a device to reverse your privilege. the alzheimer's-ridden dipshit that popularized it and the republican dipshits who still believe in it are in fact misogynists

but i understand you struggle with such basic concepts, and i applaud the government's efforts to provide work for people who cannot provide for themselves. i just wish it wasn't contingent on engaging in illegal wars and blowing up weddings in the middle east.

Oh noes you reversed my privilege by calling me something that you don't believe exists

rest assured, if a conservative accuses you of something, they're likely guilty of it themselves

see: voter fraud

government assistance

"immoral behavior"

Didn't you say the evidence shows the poor are victimized? Victimized by whom?

The conservatives are seeking to cut down on those programs, thus, hurting those who simply are trying to feed themselves and their families, to get them decent healthcare, etc, just to get BY.

How dare your racist, pompous ass talk down on anybody and try to cover it up by saying they're being willfully victimized. Maybe they ARE, in fact, being victimized? If you look at the evidence, it's pretty damn convincing.

Seems pretty clear to me

There is an old saying

If you are not liberal before you are 30, then you have no heart, if you are still liberal after 30, then you have no head.

If someone is in college and has not accomplished anything in life except to live off their parents or others, paid no bills or taxes and hasn't even started a career, does not own a home or ever paid one off, or raised kids, then only in their minds are they the experts at life. We understand you know just about everything there is to know, but so did we when we were you age. (Lightsout)

You spout too much stuff with nothing to back it up. You are, at your age a wonderful Democrat. Your dad is hurting, so it is someone elses fault, namely anyone who is not hurting. Did you know the richest folks in the country voted for Obama at a huge percentage? They know his rhetoric is aimed at guys like you who are idealistic but have no idea that it is all just rhetoric. The richest folks put Obama at the top of their list. That does not fit your rant, but at your age, I am sure you can construct another one to blame someone else for your woes. They have you, you are theirs.

Most folks will do whatever it takes to help their parents. Not saying you don't care, but if you are waiting on government or someone else to help your family, then Obama has done more with you than you know. This country did not get where it is with folks that were only able to achieve things with the help of the government. You are further gone than you know.

this is what baffles me. if someone who seems to lean right or is a conservative(at least by huddle standards) and they say anything remotely close to smaller govt etc, they are instantly a heartless devil who wants to round up anybody non white or male or straight and put them in some kind internment camp.

the 23-30 million that are unemployed cover the whole spectrum of society. some of those don't want to be there. some are not use to being there. some want to be there. some prefer to be there.

we don't know the exact #'s of the aforementioned but it comes down to this. having a saftey net for an individual or yes even a business is smart for the greater good.

it's properly utilizing that net at the proper time and not abuse it.

in my line of work i see oh so clearly the correct use, and abuse of govt programs. freddie and fannie. i see when it works the right way for families and it was given to them correctly.

i see when others are flat out taking advantage of it. i also see when f&f look the other way and don't hold someone accountable and i see other times ff is an ogre and does nothing to help.

from min wage to welfare etc, it needs to be just enough to help, but not so much to enable. that's what it really comes down to. do we have programs that do a better job of equipping people to survive then move up a notch or do we have programs that perpetuate their blight and bad cycle by enabling them?
