I'd bet he'd be singing a different tune if he saw the consequences of his opinions and what millions of people starving to death really looks like. So many people refuse to understand how SNAP actually works anyways. Most on SNAP are underemployed or employed but not making enough to afford to eat. These aren't lazy people. My parents were on SNAP for a while. It isn't easy to get on (you have to meet a very narrow standard of poverty to qualify), they barely give you any money to begin with, and if your income changes even slightly it'll drastically alter your benefits.


Never said they should be left to starve to death.

My plan would be contraceptive implants in exchange for welfare.
No babies until you can afford them.

That would eliminate welfare queens and reduce to number of unskilled uneducated portions of the population.

Less people = more jobs.

Welfare should only be a short term saftey net.


Only exception is disability welfare as they cant help it and should be entitled to full rights,

How you going to pay for this highly privacy invasive, risky, and demeaning treatment? Let me guess, you'll make the people who can't afford to eat pay for it?

Sounds like one of those idiotic ideas like drug testing welfare recipients that's based on hyperbole and unproven strawmen that would end up costing more than fixing any real problem, imo.

How about we take care of corporate tax abuses before we worry about welfare abuses?

While I do not necessarily agree with this, Snap needs a serious audit.. so many people gaming the system so they can keep their benefits while driving a brand new escalade because their common law husband/wife makes really good money... but since they dont have the court house paper saying they are married they can stay on snap sucking up money that could be used to actually help people.


The federal reserve privatized banking institution and their non-legally bound obligation to fractional reserve banking and quantitative easing has done more damage to this nation - and its populace - than welfare queens, anchor babies, etc etc could ever hope to do themselves.

People on welfare drive brand new Escalades? What world do you live in?




Yes, they do. And they somehow get HUGE tax refunds. Ive lived next to people playing the system, its crazy. Alot of people refuse to believe this, but its very true. There is a grocery store here in st. louis, down in a really rough part of town, you will see some of the best steaks and seafood in the city in this store, and it usually shows up at the begining of the month. Ill let you figure out how they (the customers) pay for it.


They even teach this in schools:

classroom.synonym.com...

It's strange how that if there is a requirement that somebody unemployed and able-bodied is required to enrol on an free education program in order to qualify for benefits like EBT, that they suddenly decide to withdraw their registration.

Contraceptive implants costs $400 and lasts 3 -5years.
Child benfit on its own per child is around $1000

Just on that alone it seems like you would break even.

Add in extra food and housing and the fact that child from poor familys will likely stay poor and children of welfare queens will go onto become welfare queens them self and you have saved money.

In answer to your questions:

If you wish to compare yourself to a dog; please be my guest.

If you wish to play the tired victim card; please be my guest.

'....many blacks choose to partake in nefarious activities to get their piece of the American pie'. You are right; a disproportionate amount of blacks 'choose' crime and a state-handout lifestyle. I chose years of education and a good paying job; Go figure.

'Let us ask the native American's were it blacks or Caucasians who decimated them?' I could ask who sold their own people into slavery but that would be rude.......So I won't.

Murder, rape and drug crime. Do you care to guess which countries have the highest rates of the aforementioned crimes? I will let you go and look it up- I can wait.

Do you care to guess which countries receive the most foreign aid? ( free hand-outs anyone?) I will let you go and look it up- I can wait.

Do some research on human evolution....To use your vernacular.....' LMAO.' Remember the 'library' and its wonderland of knowledge?'

Opps! Sorry; Books be racist!

Blacks built the pyramids 'cos.....er......' cos melanin and we beez descendants of alien Gawds and sheet.

Blacks invented everything (including sun-block) and whitey stole it!

Your own self-loathing and your blatant hatred of the white-man is very obvious; along with your self-serving justification that whitey did it in the past, thus I can do it now, to balance the scales.

This is fun.....Care to play again?




Indeed, this is fun! Nothing brings greater satisfaction than informing the miseducated.

Firstly, it was an analogy not comparison. I'm sure you're aware, just chose to deflect it because...well because it takes some of your fun away.

Second, "victim card", never that. Stating facts should not be equated to such a thing.

You chose education and a good job, great. The problem occurs when a black person does the same but due to race aren't allowed the same result. Simply because they reside outside the lines of white supremacy.

Exactly WHO sold their own people? Were it English selling Frenchmen? Or was it Ashanti selling Bantu? Lol...in case you missed it I just schooled you on a point your books didn't teach you. There are a thousand African ethnicities...gasp! Much in the same manner that a German isn't a Russain. So there was no "selling of THEIR own people.

"Murder, rape, and drug crime"...I would suppose the highest occurrences are in ***gasp*** poor countries! Countries outside the inner circle of white supremacy. Common sense would tell me that. No need to look anything up.

Receive foreign aid...LMAO! If that's the case, why are these countries not up to par yet? A better more pertinent question is, how are these countries so resource wealthy yet still poor? Can we mouth the term THEFT. And one more thing, why does a certain alliance of Nations insist upon installing their hand picked leaders in pisitions of power in these countries? To the point where they will assassinate the leaders chosen by these countries?

Evolution...lol...perhaps certain people evolved...mine did not.

The stuff about pyramids devolved into basically, "I have nothing so lets deflect and mumble".

I can do this all day...

I'll await the deletion of my posts because of the truth.



Not us whites or asians fault we are top of the food chain.

Thats the laws of nature, the weak die and the strong prosper. Thats the same in wild, within species and applys to nations and cultures.

Maybe africans should of spent less time selling each other in to slavery and fighting each other and more developing as a people......but you didn't and western and Far eastern culture is on top. Sucks for you but thats life.

What the hell is wrong with you? This is Eugenics-speak.

PS: Most of the people on SNAP are white.


Its nature and a fact of life.


Why did the native American's get kicked out of there land? Because they where week and European settlers stronger.

That same pattern has been repeated throughout history fron natiom to nation, empire to empire.


One day the west will be supplanted by something superior as well.


Eugenics, darwnism, natural selection? Whatever you want to call it , its not going to go anyway because you deem it "unfair " any more than you can wish away gravity.


And so what if many on welfare are right?

Welfare culture black or white needs to be stopped.

Please spare me your ethical science lecture. There's nothing ethical about letting people starve to death.

That sounds like some magic math to me. For one, why are you assuming the government will pay a reasonable price for this procedure? Everyone knows the government doesn't shop around but pays the price of the lowest bidder. For two, you can't calculate savings based on theoretical children that don't exist yet.

On top of that, you are adding an additional cost to each existing SNAP beneficiary. So add the price of the procedure to the cost for every current SNAP receiver before you even TALK about these hypothetical children that your crazy and hateful procedure is supposed to prevent and save money with. You also aren't considering the costs of paying professionals to install them at a reasonable speed to account for each beneficiary (millions of people). There is also health risks to consider.

There is only one way I can think of to describe this idea. Stupid and short sighted. Plain and simple. It would do more harm than good. Just like how drug testing welfare recipients always ends up being.

One of the biggest issues facing America now days is people saying crap like this claiming anything and everything that they dislike, disagree with, or just don't want, is racist. No, its not that its a failed program that is being abused, its not that it is basically socialism, its not that these "poor" people are when compared to the rest of the worlds poor people extremely wealthy with their iPhones and steak dinners, its that when the program needs to be fixed the person fixing it is racist because it will hurt black people. When you say that you are basically elevating black "poor" people above poor people of any other color, making them superior to them, which is... Racist! Congratulations, you are now part of the problem!

Your counter-argument consists of deflection confabulation, resentment, hatred and low self-esteem.

You offer no alternate reason why blacks are more likely to be involved in crime and claim a disproportionate amount of state-benefits other than ' the white-man holds me down.' (VICTIM CARD ALERT!!)

You offer no alternate reason why black countries have the highest rates of rape and murder other than ' the white-man holds them down.' (VICTIM CARD ALERT!!)

You offer no alternate reason why black countries have the highest rates of foreign aid other than ' the white-man holds them down.' (VICTIM CARD ALERT!!)


Your entire post consists of playing the victim.

'.....Evolution...lol...perhaps certain people evolved...mine did not.' I agree. My ancestors headed out into the great unknown. They explored, they created, they adapted, they overcame and they evolved. Your people stayed in their huts, ate each other and sold their relatives for shiny stuff.

'....I'll await the deletion of my posts because of the truth...' I hope your comments are not deleted as they are a good example of the average black persons resentment in a land which has clothed,fed and educated them for free whilst they have contributed nothing in return.

I hesitate to offer advice but if 'da white man' is stopping you from becoming a rocket-scientist maybe you could leave America and move to that shining example of black nation-building known as Liberia.

'......Rape and sexual assault are frequent in the post-conflict era in Liberia. The country has one of the highest incidences of sexual violence against women in the world.........'
(en.wikipedia.org...)

I hope that one day you will be mature enough to acknowledge your peoples failings and try to contribute to a great nation rather than holding your hand out for free stuff. Alternatively move to Liberia-I'm sure they would welcome a potential rocket-scientist with open arms.

Thanks for the peanut butter!

Income tax should be abolished. If you're not consuming, you shouldn't be taxed. Nobody should be taxed for "working" and "producing" things we need in the society.



No matter what you call it or how you do it the Government still needs to be funded... Now how much is the question and where I'm more interested in is reducing Government spending than changing how we pay for it all. I feel you just want a system that you personally would gain the most from...hehe I guess you do not use batteries...

Putting aside the financial and etchical arguments of this, I don't think it's going to work out how you imagine. First of all, someone is always going to be in the bottom few percent, should these people automatically lose their ability to have children, just because of where they fall on the economic scale? Then, I think you need to consider the fact that science isn't where it needs to be for temporary sterilization to even work. Birth control isn't 100% effective, and you can't force people to use it. Even if they do, accidents happen and that brings us into the whole abortion debate. Then what do you do about the fact that even when we can do something like a vasectomy, after a few years the chance of reversing it substantially declines. What if someone is poor in their 20's, but well off in their 30's? Should the fact that they couldn't afford food in their 20's now actively be preventing them from having a child?

Lets put some numbers on this, you have 1000 people, 10 are the bottom 1% of income earners, 10 are the 51%, 10 are the 99%. If you reduce the population so that the bottom half are no longer there, people 500-505 become the new bottom 1%. Are we suddenly going to phase them out too?

Besides that, we still need unskilled labor. There are a bunch of jobs in society that require unskilled labor to work them, and the ultimate goal of automation is to continue to bring down the barrier of entry on labor until everything becomes unskilled. These people still need jobs. Furthermore, they cost virtually nothing to exist. The bottom 15% of income earners in the US have something like 0.001% of the wealth. They're also only responsible for about 1% of the economic activity, and economic activity includes welfare dollars spent. It's a near inconsequential amount of money.

Put proper controls on the vendors, so that they can only ring items up as they're supposed to, and 80% of the problem is solved. We have the technology to do that right now. Change barcodes to QR codes, as part of the QR code include flags for what programs an item qualifies for, and include a unique product ID on each item so there's no ringing up random items as something else. Handle it all through the centralized scanning hardware/software and electronic payments. Fraud would be reduced to very little.

And whose fault is that if someone insisted on less than the full legality then? Of course, then you have a two income household to consider and might lose your benefits. The welfare state disincentivizes smart behavior like marriage in favor of creating permanent poor choices and lifelong state dependents. The state is daddy now.


Why is marriage smart behavior? Because the state gets involved with it and gives people legal and financial benefits that other couples don't get? Maybe if two people are of different economic classes they don't want marriage. Seperations can be expensive.

There are no situations in society today in which marriage makes sense, unless you need power of attorney, or you just want to show commitment.
