No, no, fair enough.

I have no problem people who CAN work working for a living. There ARE too many people living of government tit who should not be.

Solution is changing and streamlining the programs. Republicans want to abolish them.

And who gets screwed then? People who CANT work. People with serious disabilites, fuck them let them starve. People who work minimum wage and can't afford insurance, fuck them let them die, people with preexisting conditions who insurance companies refuse to insure, fuck them let them die.

Problem is that we have no middle ground. Its like having an infected finger. Democrats want to ignore it untill it gets gangrenous and kills you and republicans want to cut off entire leg, few fingers and one testicle.

I'm American, mind you, but I hate this about America. If something isn't one thing, it absolutely has to be the complete opposite. Can't we have a little grey area once in a damn while? To quote Daniel Tosh, "Does everything have to be so black and white in this kindergarten country of ours?"

It's a tricky subject. Some people really do need help, and are sometimes incapable of doing it themselves, that they need a helping hand.

And some are just lazy fucks who make me want to slap their shit.

My grandparents just switched from republican to democrat because they like obama. And then they go off on these long republican-beliefs rants.

All because they liked obama.

Really, this is one of the greatest oversimplifications of welfare I have ever seen.

Let's begin with the homeless man. No one actually chooses to be homeless, do you really think he just sits at the corner just because he's too lazy to work?

No. Of course not. It would be insulting of me to assume you're weak minded enough to believe that. Instead, there's something terribly wrong with him.

Let's look at statistics. According to a shelter study in Philidelphia, 37% of homeless people have some type of serious schizophrenia, with 84% overall being mentally ill.

Meanwhile, in NY, another study revealed that among mentally diseased homeless people there, 72% could be diagnosed with schizophrenia.

www.nytimes.com/1983/10/02/us/mental-illness-cited-among-many-homeless.ht ml

Also, veterans make up one in seven of the homeless population. Why? Because they either are inexperienced in jobs unrelated to service or too mentally scarred from their war time to function in properly in daily life.

www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/07/12-startling-statistics-veteran-homelessness_n_1327816.html

Besides, plenty of homeless individuals apply for work but get rejected because of employer prejudice towards the homeless.

Also cited in the Huff article, Obama caused the unemployment rate among veterans to drop six points.

Look Republicans, I'm not trying to force you to give a shit about homeless individuals, but recognize them for what they are. It's not that they choose to not work, it's that they are more than often not incapable of work.

Don't just demean them.

I'm proud to say that even the little girls of my country are smart enough to see the problems with this logic .

> The $50 job was created on the spot , specifically for the little girl . It probably doesn't exist without her i.e OP has been doing those jobs himself .

> If OP wasn't doing that work himself , then he was employing or contracting someone else . By giving away that job to the little girl , or some homeless guy he's putting someone else out of work . And then we are back to where we started .

> The whole thing lies on the theory that there's an excess of jobs with a shortage of employees or workers . This is certainly not true , especially for unskilled labour .

> The only job markets that have a shortage of employees / under-saturated , are highly skilled , highly specialized fields . And this fact is a reflection of your education system .

Yeah, that's what the Republican party WAS. Now, they're just a bunch of theocrats with no regard for facts and evidence beyond the numbers in their bank accounts. Seriously, we need to get rid of that party. Split it into libertarians and Tea Partiers or whatever, but stop fucking electing retards who promise fiscal miracles and deliver reactionary Christian values.

that's actually a more convincing argument to me than most of what the republicans seem to say.

i just can't fucking stand the extremist pricks that seem to congregate there too, like in the tea party and such. fundie-redneck assholes.

I've begun to notice that either party we choose, we get fucked over either way. Obama wants to tend to the people by giving out health reform and all of that bullshit, which doesn't create jobs and Romney wants to go to war, which might create jobs, but increase our debt even further than it already is.

One of the main goals for a society is a peaceful place without conflict, although we use politics to determine our choices, which creates conflict. Our population is much too large to maintain a stable economy without a political agenda, but with the two main parties being as they are, it causes the large population to create even more conflict.
#190 to #184 - anonymous (09/01/2012) [-]
Romney wants to go to war and your only problem with that is that it will further increase americas debt?

Why am I not surprised, american citizen?
