Did you know that there are single parents out there that aren't able to make ends meet without relying on food stamps? I'm talking about single mothers or fathers who have lost their spouse to death, divorce or abandonment. A single salary doesn't cut anymore, unless you're making big bucks. There are also parents out there who had a great-paying job, got laid off, lost their home and now living in poverty and temporary relying on food stamps to feet their children. It can happen to anyone, even you.
People have different circumstances in their lives, and for you to say such hateful things just makes you look like a heartless jerk. Eventually, there will be a time when you will need that kind of assistance. I'm sure by then you'd be singing to a different tune.
Did you know there's a lot of welfare cheats?...Did you know once welfare payments are approved its rarely monitored? did you know welfare cheats contribute to the downfall of our economy? did you know waste and fraud run rampant in the welfare system? Did you know Socialist programs take up more than half of our GDP?

The real point is the extremely dangerous entitlement/freebie handout mentality you liberals have become accustomed to because that is what your party leaders and your Food Stamp President have taught you for decades.

Remember... its not what can my country do for me, its what can I do for my country!

Yes, I knew all that. However, I was NOT talking about them. I was refering to working people who can't makes ends meet without some assistance, not lazy bums. Go back and read it again, and stop assuming that everyone who gets food stamps are Welfare recipients.

What the hell do you do for your country besides smearing our reputation as a fair-minded, compassionate people?

And you, of all people, dare to invoke the words of John F. Kennedy? It was President Kennedy who initiated the War On Poverty. It was President Kennedy who said,
"If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich."

Anyone using the name of John F. Kennedy to justify callousness and greed deserves to be struck by lightning. Stay indoors.

If you care so much about "the poor" then why don't you invite a few of them to live with you? Of course you won't because you are a phony hypocrite just like you are a phony member of the Marine Corps. You are such a stupid liar that you can't even spell it correctly.

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.
Are you such an ignoramus and anti-Christian bigot to suppose that all those who voted to cut $40,000,000,000 of waste are Christians? Think Eric Cantor is a Christian? You spout off your bigoted big mouth repeatedly on these boards based on nothing but what you read off bumper stickers. What an idiot you are. Get a job and get a life outside posting.

That's the problem - morality and being a republican don't mix / funny how they try to inject Christian ethics into the BS they spew.

A liberal preaching morality is like Ded Kennedy preaching sobriety or Bill Clinton preaching monogamy.

Save it.

Libtards have no morals. They're the reason the family unit is non existent, they love to kill babies, and they want everyone to be dependent on the government like good little sheep.
