Want to know something that you have no clue about about those times 90-250 yrs ago? Family, community & churches, YES churches, took care of the deserving indigent. The government was NOT needed.<quoted text>
Sure, everyone can work at what they love and we can barter furs and pelts for our hand crafted goods like it was the 1800s. Just one big Socialized Utopia, brought to you by the right wing Conservative Republicans.
You don't even realize how stupid you sound.
Family, community & churches used knowledge of ones needs to knowingly help to the necessary degree because they were ONE generous, TWO, they knew who the dead beats were & cut them off but still helped their families, THREE, They had more resources to help at those times because the GOVERNMENT did NOT have the government claw so deep into the citizen's pockets so as to deprive people of the financial resources to help financially.
How in the hell do you think tthat my grand dad was help after WWI when he came home with great breathing issues from gasses used during WWI?...answer...community, churches, family & neighbors that knew where to apply their reasources to the deserving & NOT the fricking undeserving lazy, non-motivated but capable of working putz's that take advantage of FREE money, section 8, food stamps & medi-caid abusers.
This comment is NOT addressed at those that are TEMPORARILY deserving of aid. Just the ones that lie, cheat, abuse the system & often for generation after generation & for years after years, druggies, lacking pride & initative & are too lazy to break free & support them selves because the Government handouts are easier than the Government Hand-ups.
YOU don't realize how stupid that YOU are.
