    A couple of exampes: the mentally retarded and disabled veterans.

    In other words, is there anyone living in this country that NEEDS and DESERVES government assistance? If not, how do you deal with these individuals?

    Progressives have determined that families should no longer be responsible for their own..this is a natural development of their belief that defectives are worthless throw-aways, that they should not be accountable for.

    Their insistence that the government pay for them is just their way of saying they won't. Which is why they want them dead.

    Uh, yes, I've met one.

    And we're supposed to take you seriously? Why don't you believe that you should support your own family?

    Hey Bill,

    I am extreme right to the right of Genghis Khan, but, to your question, we have a responsibility to the infirmed, all types. We need to help and provide. I work with handicap kids as a volunteer and for disabled elderly folks here in Las Cruces and they are soley dependent me and my cohorts who help them in all ways and the cost to pay for them as well. Sometimes I have to use my own money to get things for some of them. It's the way it is.

    So, there is a requirement in our type of system, that, literally, one for all, all for one. Government must provide, we must pay for same.

    Hope that is helpful and a very good question! Hat is tipped.

    Robert

    As some of you know, I work with the Developmentally Disabled. I am not a Republican, but I was up until 2008, when the GOP took that last turn towards insanity.

    So yes, I do believe we have an obligation as a society to take care of our weakest and most vulnerable.

    To KosherGirl... you have not a single clue as to what you speak. Walk a mile in a parent's shoes that has an irrational, inconsolable and violent child who has developmental disabilities before you get on your "holier than thou" kick. Then extend that to adulthood. That adult child will never work, will require 24/7 supervision, and will get to be stronger than you can handle.

    There was a gentleman that I worked with some years ago. His left arm and leg were atrophied to the point that the arm was unusable and the leg would drag behind when the guy hobbled. I was young at the time and thought that the man had had a stroke or something, because he was an older gentleman. I was informed that when this man lived at home with his family, they became so desperate and didn't know what to do with this guy that they chained him to the support beam in their basement and threw food at him because they were afraid to go near him.

    Isn't it just like a CONSERVATIVE Christian(note the emphasis on the word CONSERVATIVE) to pass judgment without placing yourself in another persons' situation.
