In Topic: What is the best Sandler movie?

Yesterday, 11:14 AM

I think I made it all the way through Zohan, but for me it nearly ruined everything that Sandler had done to that point. It was that bad.

 

If we're talking best/favorite movie he made, I would probably go with The Wedding Singer. That's one of my all time favorites.


In Topic: In case Hillary keeps stumbling

I love when limits are put in place on EBT that cause KIDS TO BE FED rather than being spent on things they were never intended to be spent on.

 

Housing...food...utility subsidization.  I completely understand what's being provided to people.  And I know people have chosen to pay cell bills in lieu of a utility bill or mortgage as well. 
 

 

Limits like the mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients that we had a discussion about on here before?

 

Yeah, that sure is going to help keep kids fed by cutting off their parents benefits.

 

Who are all these people you know on welfare that are paying their cell bills over utilities and rent/mortgage?

 

Get yourself out of your conservative news bubble once in awhile g5.

I sit around and wonder how we the war on poverty is something that will never be won. 

 

If you look around in these United States.  Hell, if you take a citizen from every country around this world and brought them here...they would tell you the US HAS won the war on poverty through the luxury and first world problems they have.

 

No one is "going after the poor".  But when the topics of the day have shifted from Johnny starving while a vulture waits for him to die to whether Johnny can get a 2 liter Coke on the taxpayer dime when it should be spent on juice or milk.  Yes...I'll say we've done quite well.  One of the biggest problems this country faces right now is the tax payers are outnumbered by the tax takers.  Look at the historical numbers on assistance.  Everyone's gotten into the "well everyone's taking it...so I might as well get mine" attitude.  I call that theft if it's something you're taking just for the taking with no dire life threatening need to do so.

 

You have no fix other than feeding an ever-growing monster of entitlement and power to an even more select few.
 

 

You say that you literally "love" when limits are put in place on EBT. Your words, not mine.

 

But then you claim we have won the war on poverty? Then rant about entitlements? All the while claiming that "no one is going after the poor"?

 

Monster of entitlement, lol.

 

You realize that poverty is more than just being hungry right?

G5, people like you are why Republicans are always going to be on the outside looking in.

 

You sit around and justify going after the poor as if that is in any way one of the biggest problems with this country right now.

 

To call you an idiot would be an understatement at this point. So I won't bother.


In Topic: Seahawks GM hints he'll just let Wilson walk if he doesn't lower his...

Yep...one is a Superbowl winning QB, and the other has 1 season with a winning record.

 

I don't necessarily agree with the post you were responding to with this, but your logic is fairly idiotic.

 

You give Wilson the credit for all the teams success, including a SuperBowl victory where the Broncos were so damn bad that the Seahawks basically just had to step off the plane and not fug up, and it was a blowout victory. Yet you place the losing seasons squarely on Newton's shoulders.

 

Thanks for that laugh MadHatter.
