Odd - But the real oddity was the positive icons. Seems to me the reason was obvious.
Shall I spell out that obvious to you?

What would poor USAsince do if she didn't have a battery of fanboys foul-mouth and natsy-trying to prop her up?

This isn't very obvious what is going on here. LOL, everyone else who is Progressive-meh-full on defense of the board's airhead.

Our government's hodge-podge programs for a variety of different groups of people has given rise to one of the largest, slowest bureaucracies in the world rife with massive waste and fraud.

Is this really what helping the poor is about?

And, if so, why has the poverty rate risen since the War on Poverty began nearly five decades ago?

Could the government be doing something wrong? And, if so, shouldn't we be reevaluating the problem and finding another solution?

The money saved by taxpayers and government spending by not throwing money at a problem that is only getting worse could better be used by people keeping that money and finding their own solutions without government's over-bloated bureaucracies dragging us all down.

It's the perfect example of the proverbial adage of "taking two steps forward and one step backwards."

If people didn't expect government to do what they are perfectly capable of doing for themselves and weren't told to believe otherwise, we might be living in a whole different world and a new awakening in this country.

The compassionate will always be among us without looking to big government as our collective conscience. Perhaps, relying on our own compassion instead, there might be an outpouring of unprecedented giving and lifting up those in need as we will all have more to give.

That's because to Republicans being psychotic is normal. They don't believe in Science, Truth, Psychology, common sense or free will. They fear logic. How is that normal?
