Didn’t Japan just reduce welfare benefits by 6.5% in order to discourage the “comfortably poor”?
Being unemployed should hurt. The same as being stupid. Don’t reward sloth.
Hey, they might be hard-core Objectivists only slightly misinterpreting Ragnar Danneskjöld’s sense of justice...?
That boy would have had it tough with a name like that in my school growing up...
Having spent time in both countries, it’s hard to believe that a scant seventy years ago these people withstood the Nazi assault.
If you listen to people who live off Welfare — not the temporarily unemployed; I’m talking people who make a living off of government payments — it is absolutely shocking. They honestly believe that society owes them a living and that they deserve the Welfare payments. It is why every Western Welfare state is swirling down the toilet. A very large segment of the population believes they have no obligation to support themselves and their kids.
Now that I’m retired, I’d love to see England, maybe even live there for awhile. I wonder what I could get on the dole?
Say what you will, but these people are NO DIFFERENT from today’s seniors that DEMAND money from my kids to pay for their mis-named WELFARE (i.e., Social Security and Medicare).
My kids had NOTHING to do with your stupid generation spending your retirement money as it came in and I am SICK of people claiming that they have the right to make DEBT SLAVES out of my kids.
So, no difference, when you think about it.
