i know i shouldn't be surprised, but i am in ways.
maybe i have faith for humanity that others do not, but the thought of riots, drug dealing, gang banging and crime in general from having benefits cut
is really sad.
this brings a few issues to mind,
-some americans are so incredibly spoiled that if they do not receive help they will starve.
-compared to most of the rest of the world we as a culture refuse to pitch in and help those who need it.
-the expectations of poor americans is absolutely rediculous, not only do they live way, way, way beyond their means, but they would die w/o help. not
only that, but they would die before finding a way to support themselves.
seriously, i don't get some of this,are the majority of poor american that pathetic and lazy that they would let their kids starve before getting a
job flipping burgers?
would they riot first and/or turn to a life of crime?
so many replies leaning this way is truly making poor americans look pathetically inept.
