Of course you agree with someone who disagrees with me.

I made clear what I think. People shouldn't have children that they can't support. Not paying federal tax is one thing, expecting the government to pay for your every need is another. You can infer what you wish from what I post.

I think help is sometimes a must, but to be on welfare for years is totally uncalled for.... then lots of times it is not used as it should be,if you have kids, get a job,and if you are unable to work... then stop having kids!

BINGO! Welfare is a way of life for some. For others, continuing to have on child with special needs after another, while not financially supporting any of them is just plain shameful and digusting!

In keeping with the subject generally at hand dealing with our welfare system and people who take advantage of it; there was a very interesting article in the Curious Journal's neighborhood section concerning people who choose not to work and become a dredge on society. The Bullitt County poor farm was located on the parcel of land which is now known as the Fairgrounds at 1-65 and Hi. 245. If people were indigent and could not care for themselves a Judge would commit them as inmates and they would be assigned to a small shack with a vegetable garden in the back yard they had to care for. A local family whose name is Raley served as caretakers and they were obligated to feed, bathe and care for the inmates. By 1946 there were no more inmates and the most of the land was sold to build 1-65. IN the late 60's and early 70's the Democratic party under Johnson started the (not-so) great society which culminated in paying people to vote and led to the welfare society as we know it today. Jesse Jackson and the Democratic national convention in Chicago in 1968 was where it all started. I wonder how many of our currant welfare recipients if transported back to that time would allow their vegetable garden to go to weeds and have to rely on others. Do you think there are any on the round table?

That's an interesting post. Thanks for the history lesson about the poor farm.

It's my opinion that, historically, people who are able to work will find ways to provide food for their families. If the babies are hungry, they'll shovel crap for a local horse farm, clean the town's elite's homes, or (gasp) even work in a public job. That poor farm validates this opinion.

But, we are talking about 2013. In today's world, people have learned to master the art of mooching off of the government, taking from others which they have not earned, enjoying their dependence on the government-- which frees up their own "found" money for tattoos, piercings, smokes, or McDonald's. In the 40's, it was shameful to ask others to provide--today, it is common and people are prideful of what they can obtain from others by little effort of their own. In the early stages of welfare, people were provided with bare necessities (remember the commodity system) and were so prideful that they likely would have taken no more, even if offerred. In today's world, welfare has evolved into providing for not just basic needs, but housing, money aid, food, medical expenses, utilities, college expenses, etc.

I used to feel sorry for those on welfare (years and years ago). Now, I realize that they should feel sorry for me. I'm the dumb hump who works >40 hours every week, pays uncle sam throughout the year (claiming just one, to alleviate the sting at the end of the year) and then still writes fat checks every April.

Let me just add that the problem with welfare now is that society has created generations upon generations of welfare recipients. They no longer see the assistance as something they should be thankful for, but see it more as something that they are entitled to. I can only imagine the uprising if society stopped funding these folk's lifestyles.

Personally, the way I see it is this: If you are too ornery and lazy to feed yourself, your starvation is not my problem.

Hello irene.How you doing tonight girl? Not feeling too great myself.Getting out in the rain yesterday certainly didn't do me any favors.Sitting here waiting for my medicine to get done brewing in hopes that a hot cup of coffee will soothe everything.That aside,it sounds as if you have as much insane drama in your life as I do mine.I guess if nothing else,,,it keeps it exciting.Either way,you take care of yourself girl.I'll get back when I can.

Fact is bro'...there aren't any weeds on the 'round table.Only a select few/couple people who don't have any more respect than to downgrade other posters who may hypothetically and "in theory",let their hypothetical garden go to weeds,,,,if they had one.Personally,,,I'd rather deal with weeds.

Here is just one more example of your use of a >3rd grade word.....and getting it wrong.

"Hypothetically" and "in theory" have the same meaning, dear. Before you attept to use words in an attempt to sound intelligent, you may want to check the definitions.

I'm sure you *would* want to deal with the "weeds." Birds of a feather flock together. Besides, I don't really believe that you would allow your family to starve. I'm more inclined to believe that you'd just steal from those who work in their gardens when the crops come in.
