    I received food stamps because the GI bill sucked - but didn't fuck over vets like this new 'professional military and mental midget congress critters' are doing.

    I also needed when I was in graduate school.  Unlike the teabillys I believe in error on the side of grace.  The new christian (faux) is happy to disparage all those who don't fit their little box of their little god.

    I have had it with christians faux or otherwise b/c the otherwise are pusillanimous in their dealing with their 'brothers'.  I also find the christian (faux and otherwise) are happy to accept bullshit as the answer.  

    If it weren't for the christians complaining about the others would the food stamp problem be so overtly mocked and distorted by the pundits and Fox?  And who do the christians watch - Hannity and Fox.

    YES - it is a broad brush that I metaphorically speak with - and its true.

    But I digress.

      Is at an alltime high.   So, what kind of "extra" job do we want those families to hold down?   The entire thing is just.. bad.
