To a poor elderly person, or one who is disabled, that little monthly check could very well be seen as legislated prosperity.
With such a great wealth divide in this country I dont see any body legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
I have never heard anybody say we should help the truly disabled. The point still remains it's not the governments place to steal from some and give to others. If you did that, or if I did that, we would go to prison, no matter how good our intentions.

I agree with most of this. However a compelling case could be made against point 4. Example- Churm has $12 million. If he divides it and gives Raptor in Michigan $6 million, you now have two wealthy people instead of just one!
If raptor got off her ass and worked for it she could be number 4 also!

WARRIOR how unlike you to drop an upper case letter in a proper noun. A few others do it habitually, very odd for you, or is it?

Just saying.

<quoted text>So thought answer your question. I believe in the one true God of the bible. I'm talking about the God of abraham issac and jacob. If you haven't got to know him. It's the best decision you will ever make. You see i give God total credit to the reason why i ain't on drugs or drinking. You see i've had alot of friends, family, spouse and kids either all of them have either done me dirty or let me down. Some have wounded my heart. It has taking me years to forgive and pray for these people. I'm nobody's doormat. My God is my rock.
The values my parents taught me were assisted by Religion as a youngster, after that I assumed responsibility for my actions...and my choice of friends. Never really thought I needed a crutch to do the right thing, but we all find our way differently.

What was in that series of post that would prompt that question?

Now if you ask me what my thoughts are on a Baptist preacher that incorporated politics into sermons and then used the same material to raise money.

I have a answer for you.

Newsflash: wealth isn't acquired by "working for it." If that was the case, anyone who has a job would be wealthy.

Hey Barney thought i'd give you some news. You say economy is getting better. I say you are so wrong. The USDA just released their last numbers on food stamps. It was 46 million people on foodstamps. Now the new number is 47.8 million people are on food stamps. Do the math, that's an increase. We also got 12 million people out of work. Use some logic. If ecomony is growing as you claim, the people on food stamps would be decreasing and we would have less people out of work. The ecomony shrunk the last quarter. So that blows a hold in your numbers. Face it barney you're wrong and numbers don't lie.
Among the sectors adding the most jobs in February were construction, which hired 48,000 people; health care, which added 32,000 people; and the retail sector, which added nearly 24,000. Temporary services payrolls grew by 16,000, possibly a leading indicator for future hiring. The motion-picture industry added 20,800 jobs.

I guess you made three mistakes then, you did not change the name to match the grammer.

hardly ever does a person have job thats pays enough to become wealthy. Now lottery winners actors sports players politicians CEO,s etc sometimes do. Hardly anyone becomes wealthy by working for another person or company. You gotta be self employed work long hours be frugal and have Know How to be Rich.

<quoted text>Yes he thinks everything is just fine. America no longer has 46 million on food stamps, USDA just released new numbers we now have 47.8 million on food stamps. Barney needs to tell that to the 12 million people out of work, all the people that is struggling because of obamacare and the regulations on small business and all those that had their taxes raised. He all also needs to tell it to everybody that's having less in their pocket because that have to spend extra money on gas and can't spend extra money on anything else. I really don't know what planet barney's on. But around here it's tough. I'm having to watch every penny i spend.
The food stamp numbers you are quoting are from Nov. 2011 to Nov.2012.

You do not have to be out of work to collect food stamps.

Jobs added:

Dec. 2012-------155,000. BLS
Jan. 2013-------157,000 BLS
Feb.2013--------236,000 in February BLS

During 2012, health
care had added an average 27,000 jobs per
month.

I think Its a certian core concept. Most successful people realize that their well being & success does not depend of other people things or conditions. If you believe and take positive actions those will be rewarded. I realized that you cant labor enough hours to really make any fortune. I try to have things that grow or make money when Im sleeping. My storage rental,s does that 24 x7 and I dont have to be present. Also dont deal with folks who havent got money. The old blood from a turnup theory. and you gotta be realistic I see folks who mess with horses they work their rears off training etc. when you could feed two cows for what a horse eats. The horse has a colt you gotta wean it and train it to sell it. The cows calves you can sell a 6 months. I sold 600 pound calves for an average of $850 this last fall. You gotta believe in yourself and realize you really dont need an employer.
