TSM,
I should have made clear that I added the quote from the other poster to the end of my post, because I want to see if you'll answer it honestly!?
Will you??
Your last reply made it appear as though you were dodging the question, and running away.
he asked you a direct question...and you replied with how much SPACE the poor seem to have!
HA!
lol
I call that a DODGE!
NOW, why not answer?
"Now you are free to disagree, but when you disagree do so in a way that determines who is responsible for providing for those unable to provide for themselves OR just state that you are willing to let them die on the street, one and all, from a newborn to a 90 year old, if charity can not provide for them sufficiently"
????????
Which are you?
One that is willing to help provide for those unable to provide for themselves?
OR
Are willing to let them die on the street, one and all, from a newborn to a 90 year old?
I assure you, if you take away their food stamps, they can starve...and die.
If you take away their medical coverage...they will DIE of a preventable disease!
Please answer honestly
Are you writhing a book?

OKB just more Liberal Dribble!! The Poor define by our government: A home of the typical poor family in American was not overcrowded and was in good repair. In fact, the typical poor American had more living space than the average European. The typical poor American family was also able to obtain medical care when needed. By its own report, the typical family was not hungry and had sufficient funds during the past year to meet all essential needs!!
OKB I’ll bet Obama brother living in Kenya in a Hut would look at our Poor and be astonish at their Wealth!!
Just more Republican Dribble by the right. Not one statement concerning my request of "who" should support those that can not afford to support themselves.

The typical poor family got medical care when needed? Duhhhhhh! Find a place that I said they did not. I asked WHO should pay for the medical care that the poor receive.

I bet you have never lived in a desert for a year in a tent. What is your point?

Mine is asking you WHO is going to pay for the poor who can not provide for themselves.

BTW: The only reason the poor live so well is because the right can't stand living next to a poor person with an outhouse. That is why housing is required to have electricity, indoor plumbing, sewage disposal, heat, windows, etc.... This was not always the case and when it was not the poor did not cost as much money.

I never said you said that:)
Why be intellectually dishonest?
The other poster clearly asked "who is responsible for providing for those unable to provide for themselves OR just state that you are willing to let them die on the street, one and all, from a newborn to a 90 year old, if charity can not provide for them sufficiently"

Your reply was about how much "space" the poor have (and you dodged giving a source), and that they have plenty of food.
(as though they are NOT dying in the streets).

AND, my point is that the reason they are NOT dying in the streets, is BECAUSE we "provide for those unable to provide for themselves"!

NOPE, I don't have a problem at with that at all.

THE QUESTION IS....do you?

Why run from the question?
What are you afraid of?
"Who is responsible for providing for those unable to provide for themselves"?
OR
"just state that you are willing to let them die on the street, one and all, from a newborn to a 90 year old, if charity can not provide for them sufficiently"?

It's really not that hard....are ya gonna answer?

Yeah, one is Obama legitimately raping the Americam people using Executive orders and screwing the U.S. Constitution, and the other is illegals illegitimately raping the American taxpayers.

Now run along and lick Obama's ass like a good union douche bag.

....or the fact that they found the SWITCH, that allows a women to "shut off" getting pregnant when she is "legitimately" raped!

OKB what’s your argument? First you state ‘Who’ is going to pay for the poor that can’t provide for themselves and in the Next paragraph you say the only reason the poor live so Well then you get off into your Liberal Hysteria!! So you agree the Poor in the country is being provided for and Well…Your Own Words!!

1. I asked previously, do you have any reliable links or sources to prove what you claim about how well the poor live?
OR, should we take your word for it?

2. There is a very defined difference between "living well" and "provided for".

3. "Who is responsible for providing for those unable to provide for themselves"?

4. "just state that you are willing to let them die on the street, one and all, from a newborn to a 90 year old, if charity can not provide for them sufficiently"?

1. If you have insurance through your employer why don't you just continue that policy through COBRA?
2. If you don't have insurance through your employer, why don't you just keep the policy you have. Making $100K you should have plenty saved, particularly if you are worried about getting laid off. Don't forget you are eligable for unemployment if you get laid off. Republicans say it pays so much you will never want to go back to work, so why worry?
3. If you don't have any policy, pay the $650 fine and that authorizes you to get treatment at the ER like you are now. If you live in Massechusettes the fine is over $1200 because that is how Mitt rolls.
I have insurance through my employer. If I get laid off, I would have to pay $2000 per month to continue that insurance. If I am laid off, I won't have an extra $2000 per month to give to some rich guy.

The issue is how to get health care, not how to give my money to rich people.

I have read the fine print on my statement of services from the insurance company. They claim they can deny any coverage at any time, even retroactively. For an insurance company to say that even after accepting your money for coverage, that they won't cover anything means this is not insurance, it is a scam.

As to believing republicans, that isn't going to happen. They have been so dishonest for so long that they have lost all credibility. If they said the sky was blue, I would have to go look to see why they would say such a thing.

Come on. It was an easy question. If the woman doesn't know the rapist and a child is born, that child is illegitimate. Since the child is illegitimate, then the rape was illegitimate. It can become the GOP's get out of jail free card.

Snow Bunny just prove that we are not taking Care of those in Need!! Again I didn’t say they live ‘Well’ that was OKB what I did point out was the government defining the poor which is not Bad!! The only party attacking Seniors/Newborns is the Liberals/Democrats!! The only President in American History that has put more Americans in Poverty/Welfare is Obama!!

This very notion of “legitimate rape” shows exactly how backward these extremist politicians really are. Rape is forced sexual imposition, often a violent life-threatening attack, which by definition cannot be rationalized as somehow legitimate.

It is also bizarre to label innocent children “illegitimate.” Who among us chose our birth parents?

The Dark Ages have long passed. Extremist conservatives want to move backward. It’s high time for us to progress into the 21st century.

On the heels of the GSA spending scandal in Vegas, employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs are now under investigation over a pair of Orlando conferences that ran $5 million and featured a pricey video parody of the movie "Patton."
