    What was it Ghandi said? I like your Christ, it is your Christians I do not like because they are so unlike your Christ

    If they can’t free stuff, they’re leaving! Why won’t they do that in this country? Ah wait, that’s right! we live in the land of entitlement- where everything is free, including the food!!!!

    Whereas you are simply living in some strange, not-quite-parallel universe, which does not particularly resemble the real world in which the rest of us sadly find ourselves.


    Most of the people on food stamps in the US are either children of families under the poverty line, the retired and/or those actually working. Pensions failures and the lack of motivation for industries to pay living wages is hardly “people wanting free stuff.” But it seems like “Conservatives” can’t deal with ugly situations without blaming the victims, somehow. I guess people don’t want to feel like they have to care, even (or especially?) about kids or elderly. Not very Christian, is it.

    Bawans really sums up Republicans ideology . He think turning away the unborn Christ is a good thing.

    Interestingly enough, without healthcare and education, far more people will be caught in poverty – unable to get decent-paying jobs, or bankrupted by the necessity of medical care.


    I think I see the “Christian” problem, though – a simple misunderstanding. When Jesus said “the poor will always be with us”, it was not meant to be an instruction to create more!

    They don’t want to know the truth about entitlements: that over 90% of entitlement benefits go to elderly, disabled, or working households. http://www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=3677 Here’s the difference between conservative and liberal: a conservative will make 99 people suffer if there is a chance that one person might be helped who doesn’t need help. A liberal will help 99 people in need, even though he knows there is one person getting help who doesn’t need it. It’s easy to figure out which behavior is more Christian-like.

    You could change it to we are going to tax you till you are poor or you move somewhere where the taxes are lower and if you do not pay we will nail your kid to a cross.

    This is just more of the same, Democrats good, Republicans bad. No one is talking about stopping all of food stamps. Only people who are here illegally and take responsibilty for your own health.

    The Republicans wanted to cut the food stamp budget by 30%. That’s not just stopping illegal claims. And “take responsibility for your own health” left healthcare simply unaffordable for 47 million Americans, with many others facing medical bankruptcy when it turned out that “full insurance coverage” stopped short of paying for things like cancer treatments. Healthcare reform in the US is a hot steaming mess, but some kind of reform is needed because “responsible” middle-class working families couldn’t access healthcare. I knew a working family – both parents – who were buying insulin for their diabetic kid from an internet vet supply company, because their insurance would only cover so much insulin a month, and if they needed more, too bad, so sad, and they couldn’t afford human medical grade insulin….and that’s only one ridiculous example out of many.


    So when Republicans seek to demonize people like this, and when they deny that they are doing something that they are patently doing (cutting help to people who need it not because they are shiftless or illegal, but because the system is fundamentally stacked against them) – tell me, why should Republicans not get shit for this?

    Incidentally, a collection of Christians complaining about the backlash, when people give them grief about the extent to which they persecute others….it isn’t always pretty, but it is definitely not quite a refutation of the issues, here.
