      No one knows what secrets lurk in the hearts of men. Except for The Shadow, of course. But having money may not really have any role in the fact that, in his mind, the acceptance of welfare is indelibly associated with family tragedy. You show all the standard hallmarks of Democrats who believe that people are driven by logic and reason. They aren't. They are driven by lust and fear.

    •  BTW, Ted Kennedy's family had money (1+ / 0-)

        But if Ted Kennedy had received social security benefits he wouldn't have been "dependent" on them either.
