Thanks so much, Grace! Have a safe & sparkly 4th!
Thank you, Paula. You also!
This is a great response. It's well thought out and very respectful.
I appreciate your comment, Liz.....Peace to you, Paula
Great response. I think things stay stagnant bcuz the way we do things hardly ever improves, while we're all so busy arguing about whether or not anyone is 'entitled' & for what. Can't pull weeds w/o tools & those cost money. We barely mainta
You are very correct in your premise. There are indeed people who are happy "living" at a barely subsistent level. They believe that this is normal & inculcate their children accordingly.
Grace, your comment is based on an imaginary stereotype. I doubt if any such person exists. If what you say was true poor people wouldn't play the lottery. Nobody "wants" to be poor except certain people involved in metaphysics or religion.
With all do respect, your assumptions about the unemployed are totally unfounded. Unemployment compensation only lasts for so long. Re-Training costs money. Somebody tell me how an autistic person with a 30 second attention span can get retrained.
John: They probably can't. However, there are high functioning autistic's with jobs. The federal and state governments are in a perfect position to know what jobs are available and also to re-train people. It would help the country
I read that Trump wants to end funding for handicapped children in public schools. Innocent children with dyslexia would suffer simply because their families are poor.
Maybe the problem is healthcare, and the fact that since the 1950s we have cured any major diseases. We need separate insurance even with medicare. Also, need dental and vision. Prescriptions shouldn't be separate as that is really healthcare.
Tom, your ans. should win Best, this is exactly what I was trying to say and you said it best.
The only way to truly measure a person's ability to provide for themselves is to access that person's medical history. However, a person's medical history cannot be accessed without the written consent of that person.
Ab, the whiners on hp have put your comment in the negative feedback. hp is the like CNN, ready to fold and dedicated to lies. Why should the whiners control the comments. Instead arguing the content of your comment they whine to hp.
Her claim is based on a fantasy, as I am sure no one has ever expressed to her the sentiment she claims. She is simply parroting the rhetoric of white privilege and a suburban mindset that has never experienced hardship above a broken nail.
Wrench, you nor anyone else that has a problem with my commentary on this subject, has a clue of my plight or of how I've dealt with it.
You've assumed the worst of me, based on my appearance and you've pre-judged me.
You are mistaken.I have judged U based on your naive commentary,not your appearance. There is nothing honorable about a system that creates poverty.How people deal with said system is irrelevant.It is the system which corrupts, not the individual.
It is Truth that some look to God for things to be improved in their lives and it is Truth that some look to Gov for things to be improved in their lives.
You and anyone that has a problem with that Truth can deny til Red, White or Blue, still true.
