One who knows poverty should have more empathy. There are many things in life that are beyond our control, like a lousy family situation. Some can persevere all by themselves and they should certainly be commended. Others want to but need help. And we all know that there are those that are unemployable. That's a statistical constant.
Turning you back on those that have the ability and desire is both morally wrong and counter productive.
"Let's be blunt and acknowledge the biggest threat to the world's biggest economy are the cranks and crazies that have taken over a part of the Republican party," Australian treasurer, Wayne Swan
Yet we are told poverty has never been worse
What happened to all that money and what is the left's exit plan on their War on Poverty?
I agree I can't wrap my hand around this country is in such bad shape but I still see Iphone/Ipads/Macbooks all over the place. StarBucks full of people drinking 7 dollar coffee.
Yeah, things are not great, but not great in America is awesome compared to some other places.
The IRS numbers show 1% of the taxpayers pay over 40% of the income taxes collected
While more then 50% of the people pay ZERO income taxes and some get a
"refund" on taxes they did n ot even pay
Of course that "refund" is paid by the top 1% that the left loves to hate
I believe a you pay more for the more this country does for you.
Any other country and Mark/Bill/Warren/Walton none of these people could have collected nearly as much money as they have in such a sort time.
I'm not saying dead beats who don't want to work deserve their money, but are soldiers do, and they should see that they can help instead of trying to continue too horde more money and get richer, but actually try to fix the country that both sides of this have broken.
The rich get the most out of this country.
The poor get a free mediocre life out of this country.
The middle man gets almost nothing but both sides want from them.
The rich want us to buy their overpriced products so they can get richer.
The poor want us to pay more taxes so they can live a life without working.
The rich also get back any money they pay the middle in buying their products so its almost like we are a resource to both sides.
Either way I'm getting screwed.
