    AGREE pictures that lazy stupid people shouldn't get food stamps or welfare.  

    Of course those same people think that if you need welfare you are lazy and stupid.

    I will not deny that there probably some people who get food stamps and welfare who are lazy and stupid.  But I don't think they should die.  And hurting them will result in much unexpected collateral damage.  The lazy and stupid will always be with us, denial of food and shelter will not make anyone smart and energetic.

      people are employed on Wall Street because they are either good talkers or like to play with numbers. Personally, I'm quite happy to subsidize their life-style, as long as their need to play with money doesn't keep the rest of us from using it.
      Money is a token.  Money is an aide memoire.

      We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.

      Love them, hate them, ignore them, kill them, break them, enslave them, help them or exploit them. One thing you seldom can do is change them. Yet many have this strange idea that they can. They can "teach them a lesson". Ha.  

      We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.

      •  Are you familiar with the sport of curling? (0+ / 0-)

        It is possible to change the course of the rock by the smallest degree, but only the smallest degree, and it requires much effort, and you look like a complete idiot the entire time.

        It is exactly how I feel about parenting.
