I dont get it. I keep hearing from people that welfare is immoral and wasteful when it helps so many people who would die without it. I also hear some of them talking about giving money to charities such as the salvation army and the like. Everyone has a right to live, that means the right to freedom, a job, a car and a home. No one should be forced to live without any of those. I was homeless for a year before a went on welfare. They helped me get a job and a home and I dont need it anymore! How can you be against somthing thats so good and useful? WOuld you rather the poor just starve to death and die here in America like they do in Africa?
I'm sure I'm wasting my time. A liberal's biggest failing is the inability to think anything through to a conclusion.
Take tax policy for instance. Liberals high tax approach would work if whenever you earned a dollar, you created that dollar and every time you spent it that dollar was destroyed.
But if you think in through completely you realize that earning a dollar does not create that dollar. You are only exchanging it.
By keeping taxes low that dollar gets exchanged more often.
It means Dr. Kavorkian is coming over for a visit!
You're still around? IBTZ!!!
Whew, that was a close one, but I made it IBTZ!
I am sorry but your application to join Free Republic has been denied. You must be smarter then this rock to post here.
Welfare is immoral because it degrades the person to whom it is given. (well not you apparently but most normal people) That it is wasteful is evident.
That people would die without it is subject to dispute.
Don't be ridiculous--you only have a right to basic cable.
Mr. Digger, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Yep, I love pulling that one out for the zot threads.
It's perfect for that!
I don't know why people expect they have some right to their own place to live for free. Even if they have to share a place with three other families, they should never shun work, have respect for a job and themselves and make their own life rather than mooch off of other's paychecks.
Thou Shall NOT Covet Thy Neighbor's Goods!
Unbelievable. That level of ignorance should be certifiable.
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Charity and welfare the same thing? I dont think so.
We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help
everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more
riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior and secure the
blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great
grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some
common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden,
delusional liberal, commie, pinko bedwetters.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that a whole lot of people were
confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a Bill of
BILL OF NO RIGHTS
ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any
other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them,
but no one is guaranteeing anything.
ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country
is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone-not just you!
You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion,
etc., but the World is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick
a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the
tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently
ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing.
Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly
help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing
generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve
nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be
nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in
ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people.
If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim or kill someone, don't be
surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others.
If you rob, cheat or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens,
don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a
place where you still won't have the right to a big-screen color TV or a
life of leisure.
ARTICLE VII: You don't have the right to demand that our children risk
their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate
oppressive governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to
fight if you'd like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world
and do not want to spend a lot of our time battling each and every little
tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.
ARTICLE VIII: You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure want
all of you to have one, and will gladly help you along in hard times; but
we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and
vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
ARTICLE X: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American
means that you have the right to pursue happiness - which, by the way,
is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic
laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
In a word, yes. If you have the "right" to that stuff, go do it and stop living off my money you turd.
Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my Viking Kitty/ZOT ping list!. . . don't be shy.
And it(digger21, the zottee of the moment) probably votes, too! *sigh*
>Everyone has a right to live, that means the right to freedom, a job, a car and a home. <
Wow, and to think I have worked to pay for these things all these years.
Ok, so I am in after the zot.
I dont care, I love a good laugh!
Yes. I have seen that, and I have also seen someone buy a candy bar with a 20$ food stamp coupon, then take the change and pay for the case of beer IN THE SAME LINE, AT THE SAME TIME... No one said anything.
I go to get my groceries early in the am now, most of these folks arent up yet.
I know what you mean pal, I can't always afford to pay my heating bill so I burn liberals in my fireplace in the winter to keep warm. /s
I am not against helping those who need help. I am against lifelong welfare, generation after generation, and help for illegals who come here just to get welfare. I also am angry that if I or someone in my family needed help, we would be turned down because we are citizens and not from the right ethnic group.
So is a mugging, by your logic. Charity is voluntary, welfare taxation is at the point of a gun. Also, there aren't many charities that skim 72% off the top for bureaucratic processing.
Right to live, fine. The rest? Not on my dime. Get your own job and buy your own stuff if you want it so bad. Good riddance.
Whoa! That's nasty. Warn people first, wouldya?
-you forgot high speed internet and cell phones...........
Obviously a product of the publik educashun system....
If THIS is an example of the best the left has to offer, there is NO reason the GOP can't increase their majority in both houses of Congress....
"I also am angry that if I or someone in my family needed help, we would be turned down because we are citizens and not from the right ethnic group."
Believe it or not, this happened to me. During my lean college years I went to the SS office to try to get on Medicaid. All I wanted was a catastrophic coverage policy. I never got past the front desk. The admin looked at me and said, "Your a white male, you can get along on your own."
I will never forget that. Now, I am very happy that I didn't get any aid, I'd rather tell that story than one of being a successful mooch.
Absolutely amazing... sickening, but amazing. Your name must be Ron; Mo Ron!
