    Do you think that all families would be destined to live seperate from the younger part of the family? The nuclear age has created this poverty by promoting disinfranchisement of the family to support one another through the stagesof human life.

    Whawhawha?!?!?!?...Is this supposed to be some kind of evidence of the success of Socialist Insecurity, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, disability and all the other trappings of the socialistic welfare state?

    If you had half a brain (which you don't) a guy would think that you'd want to keep such failures quiet and under wraps! :lol:

    Capitalism made us all rich!! Liberalism made many of us poor. 15% of our income in private Social Security accounts rather than stolen by liberals and an average American would retire with $1.4 million rather than dog food money from brain dead liberal swine!!

    and when the savings and loan disaster came about, GW Bush took out 2.8 billion out of SS to cover the loses. You myopic idiots have no idea that both parties have stolen and borrowed from SS.

    Those items do not keep poverty away, they only allow you to tread water until you get to shore and can get to where you are going. Those that abuse and use the welfare system are still treading water and will head nowhere because that is what they want.
