I received on of those funny e-mails over the lunch hour today. But then I stopped and thought about it, and it is not so funny.


1993 Version:

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

2013 Version:

Give a man a welfare check, a free Obamaphone, free Internet, cash for his clunker, food stamps, Section 8 housing, free contraceptives, Medicaid, 99 weeks of unemployment, free medicine, and he will vote Democrat for the rest of his life even after he is dead.

Pretty sad, you pretend welfare started in 2013, I guess they didn't cover history at BIGOTRY U !!!

Prior to the Great Depression, the United States Congress supported various programs to assist the poor. One of these, a Civil War Pension Program was passed in 1862 and provided aid to Civil War Veterans and their families.

When the Great Depression hit, many families suffered. It is estimated that one-fourth of the labor force was unemployed during the worst part of the depression. With many families suffering financial difficulties, the government stepped in to solve the problem and that is where the history of welfare as we know it really began.

Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Social Security Act was enacted in 1935. The act, which was amended in 1939, established a number of programs designed to provide aid to various segments of the population. Unemployment compensation and AFDC (originally Aid to Dependent Children) are two of the programs that still exist today.

A number of government agencies were created to oversee the welfare programs. Some of the agencies that deal with welfare in the United States are the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Labor, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Education.

Welfare history continued to be made in 1996 President Bill Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act. Under the act, the federal government gives annual lump sums to the states to use to assist the poor. In turn the states must adhere to certain criteria to ensure that those receiving aid are being encouraged to move from welfare to work. Though some have criticized the program, many acknowledge it has been successful.

I guess, they covered lying, right senile guy ?

Pretty sad, the penalty for plagerism is the value the plagiarist received, which in this case is ZERO !!

Of course, you're pretending we're writing college papers, where your lies would deny you long ago....

Poor cantgetitup, wants to make rules on a site you're using for free ??? LMAOROTFU~! Go ahead, child/troll.

They must not have covered plagiarism at any school that the Leftists on this forum went to. Or maybe, like the Sludge, they did not cover it before they got booted out.
