    The obviousness of your never having faced hard times is apparent, or if you have, you are awfully self-righteous about having overcome those hard times.

    “Are there no prisons? And how about Walmarts? Are they not still in operation?”

    “Hey, IDIOT,…”

    You force me to assume that you, too, have not been faced with real adversity in day to day survival. Either that or you have forgotten what it was like and lack compassion. I am glad for you that through happenstance or design that your job paid enough that you were able to save enough to enjoy a Thanksgiving day feast although currently unemployed. Not all people are so fortunate and it has nothing to do with personal responsibility for many.

    “…. And guess what, my wife and I purchased it with our OWN MONEY! What a novel idea.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well, aren’t you lucky! And people who don’t have money can just do without. There’s the old ‘Christian’ spirit!

    Sitting in the same place waiting for someone to provide you with a job is analogous to dog thinking. There is always work to be done but too many that don’t want ot do it.

    “……… There is always work to be done but too many that don’t want ot do it.”
    Your opinion seems to be too opinionated; yes, there is always work to be done. But for many it is unavailable to them for a variety of reasons.

    1. Maybe they could get to work, but they don’t have enough money to buy a car – and a taxi would suck up every penny they earned.

    2. Maybe there is an available job, but they haven’t been trained for it, and their folks couldn’t afford to send them to college.

    3. There was a job opening,but too many people were competing for it.

    4. The job that was offered didn’t pay enough to put food on the table.

    And on and on and on.

    Walk a mile in his shoes. Your coin has two sides. It wouldn’t hurt for you to look at the other side.

    Objective evidence here that America is NOT a Christian country….

    Republican philosophy: The wealthy don’t have enough money. The poor have too much. More tax cuts for the rich! More nutrition and healthcare cuts for the poor. Christian nation indeed.

    Good on yer, Mike. I appreciated your retorts on this thread.
    Despite being taunted with an offensive insult, you kept your sang froid. Excellent.

    Thanks for exposing these wingers’ arguments as utter nonsense. For some reason they think that the national average of $9.00 a day in food stamps is more than sufficient to feed people; and that jobs are abundant enough that only lazy people aren’t working. Whatever it is that makes the extremist conservatives here think as they do has had no effect upon their hearts, except to harden them.

    “Of course Food Stamps and SNAP contribute nothing whatsoever to personal responsibility and self reliance. But they do generate votes for the democrats and that’s what the handouts are all about.”

    As you do unto the least of these, you do unto me.

    ypoons: you overlook the fact that Carnegie funded all those libraries as a “sin offering”, literally, to make up for all those, including small children, he killed as he grew his wealth in his “industry”. His libraries were also intended to provide education for “the poor” with PUBLIC libraries, so that future generations would be educated, and not fall prey to such as himself.

    I’m sure that today the CEO of EXXON Mobil, with millions in his pocket from government subsidies in his annual bonus, also says “I bought it with MY OWN money.” He just doesn’t want folks on the right to see where it actually came from, the government largesse.

    Just like those represented by the other “turkeys”.

    Interesting. If Food Stamps and Snap generate votes for Democrats, why do Republicans insist on raising the poverty level and usage of Food Stamps whenever they have power?

    Not only that, but it is also a fact that the poorest states in the USA are the red or conservative Republican states where the poor (generally on such programs as SNAP) vote Republican!

    And it is the blue states such as California and New York where the working class give far more to the federal treasury thsn yhey ever get back in benefits from that treasury (in the case of California for every dollar paid we only get some $0.78 in benefits). So, just who are the responsible makers, and who are the irresponsible takers?

    But, unlike the ultra conservative types (some of whom actually have the nerve to call themselves Christians) here, I as a true Christian do not resent this. For Christ in the bible (a book that many self righteous so called Christians evidently never bother to read) stated the following when asked a question by the pharisees of his time, in Matthew Chapter 22:

    " 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. "

    So, if you did love your neighbor (poor and on govermental help or otherwise) as yourself, then just how could you object to having the government that we all support, actually help people with one of the most basic of human needs, in having enough for proper nutrition?
