You realize thats just meaningless propaganda, right?
You must be a pigeon, depending on government support in some way.
Trickle-up poverty was tried in Greece, it was tried in Cyprus, and it ended up to be a path for corruption, mismanagement, massive bureaucracies, and
entitlement-based justification for lazyiness.
My welfare sister could turn a $1000 gift and buy liabilities that dig her 10x deeper; car she can't afford, another baby, down payment on a new 30%
loan, a party with wrong people drugs then cops and court. She could turn a silk purse into a pigs ear. People who didn't earn their own money don't
know how to handle it, from welfare sisters to trust fund babies.
I grew up in a nice neighborhood where abandoned FHA/VA 3br houses were given to people from Watts, who saw them as apartments and rented to two more
families. The moms taught their 15yr old daughters welfare, how more babies meant a bigger check, and those daughters taught their daughters. Dads
were other kids who had no real parents and made money by being bike thieves and burglars and started pretend gangs that turned real when they stole
That's the trickle up utopia for you. My sister became a crack whore, my hometown became a hood. Kids in Cyprus are begging other kids for food. A
great depression is hitting Europe (which risks spreading to the US) with unemployment far higher than was the unemployment rate in the US during our
Great Depression. This was all created by the 'feeding the pigeons' effect of entitlements and trickle-up failure.
At first the pigeons and the old men feeding them feel happy, then the pigeon population explodes, everything is crapped on and people are figuring
out ways to get rid of the hungry and aggressive pigeon population. Don't be a pigeon.
