  •  What I never see rebutted (9+ / 0-)

    is the notion that there are vast swaths of the country where no one works and everyone survives on welfare (or some other 'entitlement' program).

    Despite the fact that unemployment is high in many populations, the idea that there are kids out there who have never met a person who works is one that needs to be ridiculed. It is absurd. Everyone regularly eats food that was purchased somewhere and wears clothing that was bought somewhere.
