OVER HALF OF PEOPLE ON FOOD STAMPS WORK...but they still can't afford to feed themselves on top of the bills...
So all you people with this attitude, 'why should all these lazy people who don't want to work be able to buy stuff I can't afford with MY tax dollars.' Your tax dollars? Over half of people on food stamps work! Their tax dollars too!
And raising wages is totally unacceptable too! You're not gonna be able to get paid enough to pay bills and eat, but keep working anyways and then we'll give you # for subsidizing your food WHICH YOU CAN'T AFFORD despite the fact that you work.

we need to strip any and all calvinists or promoters of calvinism of their citizenship and expel them from the us.
this most despicable brand of xtianity teaches Predestination: that people are poor because they're already damned to hell;
and being prosperous, a sign of being of the elect.

I recall that thread. You also had a big bag of tobacco in the background.

If my tax dollars are funding a program for children that will eventually create better AND productive society, I have absolutely no problem. That means that in the future perhaps we can finally do away with giving away free money to those who do NOT need it and are abusing the system.
Think of it as a contribution to a society that will eventually benefit everyone.
But again, just put "It's for the children" in front of what ever, and it will have a base of uneducated backers.
