I would just like to see them do away with disability on minor children. Disability should be for people who are of adult age who cannot work - not for all the Asperger's/autistic, ADHD, behaviorally disordered, etc. children in the country. All this does is give the parents an incentive to keep their kids at home once they hit adulthood rather than working/training for work because the parents want to keep pocketing the monthly check.

These kids need LIFE LONG CARE! its not feasible for one parent to stay at home anymore on ONE INCOME. are YOU going to pay their medical bills, their daycare or their provide for their clothes / necessities PERSONALLY?!

Many think this is a bad thing, but according to the Bible, those who won't work, won't eat.

Forcing people to once again be responsible for themselves breaks the chains of communism and re-establishes strong self willed, self made, hard working, respectful people once again.

The only thing that the Illuminati fear is a strong man who is NOT dependent on the Government to survive in any way.

“If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers and artist, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule. That was the American Dream”.

Irony by Brief:

Quote: from Brief…Today's Lesson In Irony

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is actually proud of the fact it is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals" . . . Reason: "the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

-------
"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'" By: Ronald Regan
 Quoting: Loup Garou


Don't work, can't eat applied to the able bodied. Very old testament, and consider Jesus said to take care of those that could not take care of themselves, such as disabled people.

That does not mean I don't believe disabled people should be sitting around collecting a check, but they should be covered and volunteer or work as much as they can for the benefit. In most state that is already happening with low incident citizens that can do some things, just under a lot of supervision.

Also too remember, a lot of kids are on medicaid because there parents can't afford health insurance, and or they are wards of the state. Unemployed pregnant women get medicaid as well, which makes since because you don't want kids born with preventable birth defects and disorders.

 Quoting: Loops


Actually, "junk food" is the cheapest calories in the grocery store. $1.00 can buy 1100 junk food calories, but $1.00 can only buy 200 calories of fresh fruit and vegetables.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1739521


^^^^this right here is what i keep telling people - they just dont get it. I can go wherever and buy a dollar loaf of french bread and feel full for like 2 or 3 hours until its time for the next meal vs. buying 1 dollars worth of fruit and vegetables ( which doesnt exist btw) and practically starve until its time to eat again.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69058933


Do you realize how stupid you sound? Just because your belly is full off of that white bread that doesn't mean you're nourished. You're actually starving.

Consuming less of the fruits and veggies (even if you don't feel thanksgiving full) is serving a better meal to your body.

Furthermore, grow a garden and you won't have to purchase the veggies and the fruits. They have these fancy newfangled as hell things called "hybrids" that are specifically for growing in containers. So even if you only have a balcony you can grow produce.

What other excuses do you have?

I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

Let's send more billions to Saudi Arabia who is really hurting these days.
 Quoting: PhiloSophiaZoso


Truth-Speak!!!

A couple of Saudi Sheiks could have dished that out from their pocket change alone.

I was cheated by an attorney and lost my home and business years ago. I unknowingly owed the IRS, who knew I was cheated because they were the ones who informed me of it but still held me responsible. I had no choice but to use and EBT card, and I didn't buy soda and chips with it. It took a year and I was back on my feet but that card kept me going (but was embarrassing to use).

A friend who worked all his life as a heavy equipment operator for a company in Wisconsin lost his job because the company he worked for folded and contracts for work at other places fell through. Then he had three heart operations. He almost lost his wife and kids home because of it. The card bought him time and made it possible for him to start his own landscaping and snow plowing business. Now he's back to working, feeding the family and paying taxes himself again.

How many people out there are honest and want to work that the food card helped get back on track as compared to those to stroke the system because they're lazy? I think that should be determined first before serous cuts are made. especially when we're doling out BILLIONS to known wealthy, terrorist, enemy nations...

Reducing welfare eases the burden on those who actually do work. Arguments that this money is going to be spent on something else are not valid without proof that the money is actually going somewhere else.

Not only does welfare make life harder for workers, it also discourages the people who can make ends meet on welfare from working and encourages welfare fraud of the welfare baby variety.

I don't think that anybody here is saying we should slash welfare to send money to Saudi Arabia.

I personally would like to pay less money to feed people I don't know, especially if the reasoning is that otherwise they will rob me, because then it is extortion plain and simple. I don't want to be extorted. People want to come out and riot and be violent? Fine, meet them with even greater violence. They won't be needing welfare anymore then.

The difficult truth about IQ and the ability to earn a living wage. IQ is an important facet but not the only one. The truth is if a person has just an IQ of 85 they can do OK for themselves provided they are tenacious enough to persevere. Even with military testing to be a soldier at the most basic level of training you need an IQ of 83.
Now, pointing this out you have to realize the average IQ of a a typical black person in the USA is 85. That is average and does not include the outliers, because clearly there are many black people that do have high IQ and puts many other Americans to shame.

So looking at a bell curve with that being bulk ot the average, you need to realize that one half of the average, falls quickly to an IQ below 70. So My guess is that roughly 25% of black people will have a very difficult job holding down any sort of gainful employment in which they can support themselves. That does not mean they are not hard worker, but probably have a much harder time keeping their attention focused on anyone task too long and not being able to process information fast enough means they are sorely limited.

It is not this faction of the black populations fault. They are by IQ standards , disabled. So it is best to yes, help these people out so they don't fall prey to criminal intentions and built in safety nets for them, and yes , their kids too. It is just the moral thing to do. That does not mean they should get a free ride all the way ,but that they do participate to the best of their ability.
