So.....make it more comfortable for people that are poor, to stay poor by handing out more stuff.
Yeah, makes sense to me.
Tax money should not be going to most of this crap.
There are people that truly need it, I get that. But that percentage is small.
People should not be paid to not work for 3 years.
Welfare should not be something people get on for life.
I am tired of seeing people use EBT cards for their Milk and bread, only to turn around and pull out a wad of cash for beer and smokes. And then see them driving a new car.
Want people to get out of poverty??? make it uncomfortable to be there. It is amazing how fast people will move when a fire is lit under their butt.

I wish you would clarify your position more because if i could understand what your saying it seems like there is potential for it to be valuable point of view.
1. There are two kinds of fire. The kind that burns and the kind that cleanses. Human fire burns. The fire of God cleanses. The fire that separates the gold from the garbage is the fire that brings the ideal officer to the tyrant. This is the fire that separates gold from garbage. The fire that cleanses is the fire that brings that brings the ideal comfort to the peasant, the prisoner, or the outcast.
Pure intent is not in your frame of reference.

Right but heres where your going to hit a roadblock with this debate.
We have 2 kinds of people here, 1 kind who is empathetic towards the plight of their fellow man, and the 2, the type of cannot grasp experience outside of their own, they have an inability to empathizing and understanding perspective.
