From the Richmond Times Dispatch Letters to the Editor:



March 9. http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/...09/tdopin01-letters-to-the-editor-ar-1751568/

On food stamps and feeding programs

Editor, Times-Dispatch:

Isn't it ironic? The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the National Park Service – also part of the Department of Agriculture – reminds us, "please do not feed the animals." They may become dependent and unable to care for themselves.

Great read!! Food stamps and welfare are over-used and abused. The taxes from my hard-earned wages are going to support those who are too lazy to go get a job and provide for themselves.

In before Beretta gets here and starts whining about how the wealthy "should have the living piss taxed out of them," but refuses to admit that she covets their property.

I wish people would fact check things they read before reposting them.

Is not the National Park Service part of the Department of the Interior?

I hate paying for those old white folks that are too old and or infirmed to work for themselves.If they had just saved their money instead of paying for all those medical bills, they wouldn't be such a burden to us./s 39% of the population in MO are recipients with 69% of those being children. Some folks are just et up with that christian spirit.

You know, more than just white people are on the social security rolls (although, since you brought it up, it's fair to point out that they pay the most into the system). But then, if you weren't a racist bigot, you'd know that.

All American workers are victimized by the Social Security system. If the government didn't take 15% off the top, people actually would be able to plan for their own retirements, and if the government wasn't mucking up the health care and insurance systems, old folks would be better able to afford that, too.

You might be surprised to learn that old folks weren't just left to die in the streets before the advent of America's first dictator-for-life, FDR. People and communities actually took care of each other without the government putting a gun to the heads of some groups to pay for the needs of other groups. Just because you do not want to take care of your aging parents does not make your aging parents our responsibility.

Christian spirit is helping the less fortunate, NOT having the government take one person's earnings to dole out to another after taking much of the money for themselves.

No fact check required, this was quoted verbatim from the letters to the editor. Yes, the writer is incorrect in his statement. But still shows the lunacy of the giant bureaucracy we have allowed to be created.

While being appauled that someone might suggest a military strongman who eradicated the communist parasite enablers within his country before giving up supreme executive authority (like no other "dictator" in the western hemisphere has ever done), and suggesting listening to Limbaugh is the reason someone suggests such extreme measures are fathomable. Even though Limbaugh has probably never referenced how communism in Chile was effectively trounced by a military coup that murdered a few thousand people, as opposed too the regular leftist coups and revolutions that consistently killed tens to hundreds of thousands.


Beretta lady isn't that stupid even after huffing a case of rustoleum.

LOL...yes, please keep defending your wet dream of a military dictatorship in our former Republic.

Who cares about a few thousand murdered people, as long as they were on the opposite side, right?

I wouldn't know about the off-forum recreational activities in which the both of you engage.

The moonbat messiah will just give them a pain pill and if it happens to be fatal, forget about any malpractice suit. Feel free to report me to his KGB website.

Is it not all federal government? The point of the post is not diminished because of departmental structures. The fact is COMMON SENCE should tell people that giving away free food TO ANY CREATURE reduces their motivation to sustain themselves. As humanbeings with compassion we should help each other, but we should have the analytical skills too see that some people don't NEED help, they're just lazy and reduce the resouces available to those who deserve assitance.

OH YES!!!! I totally advocated a military coup. I've NEVER rejected all of the insipid calls for rebellions or other "resets" advocated by malcontents like you.

Grow up.

Stop feeding the poor...I mean, stop feeding "creature", and they will get a job, sure:rolleyes:

"Common sense," how cute.

I am interested in knowing what form of analytical skills will distinguish one persons ability to tend to self, and another persons ability.

Oh PLUHHHEEESSS....

You know damn well there are an awful lot of people who've gotten themselves into their destitute circumstances, and take advantage of the assistance provided by government.

You also know that there are millions of people who risk their lives crossing deserts, and their freedom going to mexican prisons if they're from south of mexican borders just to get here to take jobs. So indeed yes, stop feeding some of these parasites and they will indeed pick crops and live in shacks in order to survive.

We'd kill 2 birds with one stone by enforcing strict residence standards (that we have, but don't effectively enforce) and enforcing voter ID laws.

It would destroy the democtrap party as a bonus.

The fact that the quote is incorrect renders it completely irrelevant. It just becomes another mindless cut and paste talking point.

Can't see the forest for the trees kind of thing. Irrelevant to what? It has to be relevant to this discussion because it is what we are discussing. Do you even know what that word means?
