Dear Idiots

There is no longer such a thing as "food stamps". They went out with Bud Dwyer.

not on welfare. Neither am I saying it is not going to happen. I am an able bodied male, therefore not able to receive cash benefits. Bill Clinton enacted that law in the midst of a boom economy. Times are different now but people like you keep help out of the hands of those most in need. You really should be ashamed. Just once in your blinded life take a look at those you ignore. Volunteer on the soup line at the city Mission. Look into the eyes of those whose hunger overcomes their shame and dignity. You might find yourself looking in the mirror.

If Romney wins and bennies are cut that doesn't mean we'll get rid of 20% or so of the slugs.

That means we'll reduce bennies by 20% and that percent will include the needy and non-needy.

If we only targeted cheaters I thunk we could invest 20% less yet still cover just as many of the worthy.

Why doesn't Romney care about rooting out cheaters?

because it benefits him politically to paint all receiving government help with the same broad brush.

obummer drone conga line

An obummer drone conga line is a voting orgy consisting of several naked democrat drone males, where the kicking motion is substituted with a penile thrust into the rec-tum of the democrat drone in front of him.

democrat drone females can join in too, but require a strap-on di-ldo.

Report:

Welfare government’s single largest budget item in FY 2011 at approx.$1.03 trillion

The government spent approximately $1.03 trillion on 83 means-tested federal welfare programs in fiscal year 2011 alone — a price tag that makes welfare that year the government’s largest expenditure, according to new data released by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

The total sum taxpayers spent on federal welfare programs was derived from a new Congressional Research Service (CRS) report on federal welfare spending — which topped out at $745.84 billion for fiscal year 2011 — combined with an analysis from the Republican Senate Budget Committee staff of state spending on federal welfare programs (based on “The Oxford Handbook of State and Local Government Finance”), which reached $282.7 billion in fiscal year 2011.
.
.
.

The data excludes spending on Social Security, Medicare, means-tested health care for veterans without service-connected disabilities, and the means-tested veterans pension program.

Tell me,have you ever been hungry just once in your life? I don't mean politely interested in the stores of your pantry. I mean, have you ever had to wonder where your next meal was coming from?

Didn't think so.

There is another side to the equation. Do you know what it feels like, to find out someone cares enough about you, from the courage of their convictions, to pull you out of the ditch, to feed you and clothe you out of their belief in the Lord, so as to light the fire of belief and love for others in your heart? No? Then, my friend, I feel sorry for you. You are the one who is truly poor.:-)

Would it matter if they gave you the assist yet did not believe in the Lord? BTW the story of the good Samaritan regards someone outside of God's favored in group (the Jews) lending mercy to a Jew when Jews wouldn't.

The government can force no one to take welfare so it's voluntary. Why didn't Romney advocate drug testing for applicants as a way to lower costs? Magic underpants too tight or was it in order not to alienate voters?

From my own experience- you are biblically correct. The samaritans were considered outcasts. And when you spend 30 days in Erie City Mission, it is called "Samaritan Care". The gentlemen serving your food and keeping order are recovering from addiction, outcasts much like the original "samaritans", the last people you would expect help from. And their own struggle, I can testify to, has given most of them a compassion that Christ would smile upon.

I can't explain in words what it means to wake up to face a day alone on the street, bostered by cheerful happy banter served along with a helping of scrambled eggs,toast and coffee after a good nights safe, sound sleep.

God bless these Gentlemen.

And I use the term "God" without reservation. If these folks (as well as myself) believed only in the ego that led to their near destruction, there would be no hope. Christ is one of the greatest teachers to bless this world with his footsteps.

Mmmmmmmm. Scrambled eggs, toast and coffee...I'm just messin' around ;)

My bad perhaps but my thought was that the Mission's quest was to feed the soul first by teaching and the body secondly by nourishment. Why IYO doesn't the first part take for the residents?

I haven't a clue. Just curious.

Buddhism/Taoism is where I learned about ego much more than Christianity. Isn't Jehovah an angry and jealous God? Wasn't Jesus pissed--so to speak--when he overturned the moneychanger's tables? Sounds like ego in action to me.

That aside, I think the biggest ego-fest is from believers who think they know what a God/Son said based on what humans said they said. This gives believers license to wail upon the beliefs of others with a superiority as if they were God themselves, practical evidence to the contrary.

Just riffin' ;)

firsthand experience - the Mission feeds and cares for the body first. I was NEVER forced to participate in religious observances. I was given a warm comfortable bed, good fellowship, lots of laughs and an occasional prayer with those in the same boat, a good breakfast in the morning. Not to mention good cheer from program directors who know somehow to tell a clean joke and make you laugh your ass off.:-)

The Prince Hall Masons (Black Masons) have a big influence in City Mission. They ran the Underground Railroad in Erie during the Civil war.

They are jolly good fellows who managed to make me laugh in the worst of lifes circumstances.

Even though I'm doing a little better now, I find myself mikssing the fellowship and fraternity of the "less fortunate"

If I manage to survive and thrive, I will no doubt find myself returning as a volunteer instead of a guest. I miss those guys. ;-)
