    Yes there is. Because NEED has not been demonstrated.

    You think it's MORAL for hard working people (with families to support) to fund lazy asshats who don't feel like working?

    Wow ... you really live a different universe.

    I also forgot to mention another fallacy you committed here.

    Here, you are inferring the truth of a whole from the truth of some part of the whole. You have committed the Compositional Error Fallacy, specifically involving people as the class. That is bigotry. Bigotry is a rather nasty logical fallacy... I'd be more careful about it if I were you...

    We also care about who is overseeing it (federal government vs state government vs county government, etc...) as it is unconstitutional for the federal government to legislate welfare...

    You can't work full time if you're an engineering major. Maybe you had an easy degree?

    I dunno about that. My father worked part time as a pharmacist while he was attending medical school (and had a family to support). And yes, his undergrad degree was in pharmacy.

    That is an employment law, not an unemployment compensation law. Work real hard and get the proper law passed. Wait, ...work? ......never mind.

    our alleged wars on crime, drugs, and terror worse.

    we have a general welfare clause not a general warfare clause.

    Compensation is for capitalism's natural rate of unemployment to solve simple poverty on an at-will basis.

    Just get on your knees and admit the truth. You don't GAF about the Constitution or unemployment laws. You want a universal income check every month so you don't have to do ****. There's the elephant in the room you won't discuss. :roflol:

    Please explain to me a circumstance in which somebody is unable to find work as a result of natural economic conditions. As an example, with out current near historic low unemployment.

    I'll tell you. People that are unemployable. Drugs, laziness, entitlement. People that aren't working in today's economy is most likely the result of the person, not some market boogeyman.

    So you want to sit on your ass, lazy, doing nothing, on an internet forum lecturing everybody else how they owe you?

    Good God man, that's pathetic.

    Nobody owes you ****. Get off you lazy ass and go get a job.

    You have the right not to work. You dont have the right to be compensated for that decision.

    The right wing understands quite well lazy entitled Bernie drones who believe everybody owes them something. Try to defend your illogical and immoral ridiculous position all you want. It still doesnt make sense and just makes the left wing look collectively ignorant.

    You elect NOT to work, and you are the victim of the system?

    Yes you can. It takes longer of course, but it's entirely doable. I did it. My husband did it. Plenty of our friends at university were doing it (obviously, since they were in our night classes). ALL sciences.

    Exactly. And medicine is about the hardest degree there is. I know many who've dragged themselves through it while juggling jobs.

    Absolute BS. I have a degree in architecture, and served in the national guard, while always working a part time job, and maintained a B average.

    The program started with 235 candidates and graduated 32. One of the most time demanding majors.

    Yes, it is completely plausible. I am now an adjunct professor in a university engineering department and many of my students work.
