Those good-old conservative Christian values on display… Jesus would be the first to take food out of the mouths of the poor and children. God said tax cuts for the rich and no food for the needy. Jesus said “Get a job,(even if there are none or it the job doesn’t pay enough to feed your family) if you want to eat.
God so loved the world that he gave his only food to the wealthy… the poor be damned.

So much love and compassion in those cold-hearted words… those little children should starve because they can’t work and buy their meals like you.

Pure evil in your nasty heart; no health care and abortions because the right wants millions more born so that they can keep them sick and hungry.

If youre trying to make me feel guilty, its not working. Their parents can get off of their asses and feed their own kids...why should it be other people's responsibility to feed THEIR kids? If anyone should feel guilty because the kid is starving it should be them...Its their kids, their the ones that brought them into the world they're the ones that should provide them food and shelter otherwise they shouldn't have had them in the first place.

How selfish is that getting mad at people because they don't want to feed YOUR kid?

And btw, moocher....were not abolishing it were just cutting it which means they'll have to spend it more wisely instead of buying twinkies and M&M's they'll have to buy REAL food.

Couldn't agree more. Free food, free health care, free housing, free phones.... when is enough a enough.

Guilty?
That requires a sense of compassion or morality… there is no way I would ever mistake those traits in someone like you… I was just pointing out your mean and nasty streak.

Wait a minute… didn’t you just say that they should be responsible for feeding themselves and their kids? So now it is that you want them to spend other people’s money wisely? So now it’s not that they are freeloaders, it’s that they are irresponsibly buying M$M’s instead of “real food”… LOL, you’re so confused that you are confusing your own contradictions, LOL!

My own sister makes so much money on managing a disability health scam that she periodically has to go on expensive vacations to get rid of the excess cash and make up stories about some Liberal counselor gifting her several thousand dollars to do so. Scam artists can accrue too much liquid assets, else some legitimate welfare worker will cut the monthly allotment. This same scammer sister found out she could get more money by "separating" from her husband, who lives in the same Section 8 building and has all the benefits of a continuing marriage. She even gets food stamps. This in addition to housing discounts and she's still cashing in about $1400 a month tax free. She enjoys her lobster dinners, when on vacation to spend the excess cash. Quality character there and it the same crap Marine Corpse Pat would have continued and expanded.

That's because you were having a panic attack thinking we were going to abolish food stamps altogether...which is what we should really do...

Basically, feed your own kids or don't make 'em, moocher.

Yeah, screw all them useless children, seniors, and the disabled! It's not our job to show them any human decency! Let them eat dog food!
And you, in turn, can eat feces.

What's really funny is that Larry says this "caring" garbage at the same time he'd continue shitcanning 1.6 Billion people on Earth living in dung huts without electricity to further Obama's green energy scams (just because Obama is Black.)

How about House Republicans taking a cut in their
taxpayer-funded salaries, I mean, since none of them do anything anyway, totally useless to America.

Oh, wait, they did defund Obamacare for the 42nd time.

Their families should be financially supporting them, taxpayers should be the last resort.

Or you can take them in, Larry ...since youre such a bleeding heart, compassionate, tolerant liberal.

Well??

Does that include the children of a single mom that is working 40 hours a week for minimum wage?

Now maybe the ones who truly need foodstamps will get. No more illegal aliens. Somebody has to stop this invasion of people from Mexico. Its fine for Vets, Army families, seniors-but let them be American Citizens, not illegals from Mexico. Thats a wealthy Country, so let them take care of their own. We have had enough!
