Colonel, as if it was Clinton's idea to fix welfare....like he fixed terrorism by 'warning' Bush during his exit interview, riiiiiiight.
Furthermore, while we ARE in the mudpit, perhpaps we can have an honest, intelligent subject about this topic BEFORE jumping to conclusions? what do you say, Colonel?
As far as welfare, I think You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves - if they can't do for themselves than society should take care them, hence welfare.

The spirit of Cain really comes of you people on subjects like this.
In any event, really think you people need to stop watching FOX News. Clinton's welfare-to-work program last for 2 years only. By that time, one should be off welfare and working b/c they help you FIND a job while your getting welfare.
But, I don't know why you're dissing it. With the way Bush is running thigs, some of you might be needing pretty soon.
Then, what're you gonna say?

1. When the last Democrat Govenor is BOOTED out of office (what is there like 2 left? heh heh) AND the "State" is able to TAKE CARE OF and PAY for their Own welfare THEN and ONLY then will they be free of Federal Regulation.
2. The Federal Government, under a Fiscally LOGICAL THINKING President who is NOT looking for personal kick backs from his "buddy Govenors" for the billions sent their way, will always seem like a bad guy to people like YOU Colonel ..
I can't HELP but notice you used the $500,000.00 a year figure for the "rich" guideline.. A DAMN FAIR figure indeed.
PROBLEM is YOUR BUDDIES, the Demoncrats, consider ANY family with a mean annual income above $90,000.00 a year RICH!!!!???!!!!
Are you KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!?!?!? $90,000.00 a year TOTAL household income?!?!?!?!? RICH?!?!???!?!
Sooooooo OUT OF TOUCH, it's a laughing stock!

And some you run around supporting the welfare in Iraq and won't even support the programs in this country that takes care of ya own people. There are some problems within the system and there are those that abuse the system. But, it's better we feed one lazy azzhole than we let millions of poor children starve. Grow a #ing heart tin men and women.
