People getting Food Stamps and free food from food banks eat better than most. Just look at the obesity levels in poor neighborhoods.

When was the last time you saw a kid in America with their ribs showing from hunger?

In line at Walmart mother with no teeth, or rather buds for teeth, had Cheetos, Pepsi, and ice cream and she thought it was so funny she couldn't remember her EBT pin number. She finally got it, then whipped out a twenty for her beer and cigarettes. I really felt sorry for her as she is another slave to the handout system

If all white people would get off food stamps and out of public housing, minorities wouldn't have to work so hard.

The only solution to all of this freeloading is communism folks.

You gotta put people back in touch with their natural creative capacities and make a world where labor becomes meaningful again. Of course, it does mean no more sweatshops, so no more cheap near-handouts from the Walmarts of the world. But just think - we won't have so much stuff that we drown in our own garbage. And trust me - you'll all be happier once we're a culture of producers again rather than consumers.

That's nice. I read a news story today about a corporate CEO who did his job so poorly that he got fired before he could retire. Good thing for him too b/c getting fired instead netted him an extra $30 million over the $20 million he would have gotten when he retired. Yes. The $50 million golden parachute.

That folks is the REALITY of today's economy - and don't tell me that you make your own "choices" and don't have to pay for that. We all pay it. So save your moral indignation for something that matters. Like why doesn't Virginia have real bars? Or real delicatessens?
