    In frequent threads here the brain-dead leftists moan about how the "idle rich" (like there is such a thing) don't deserve their money. But look at the other side. The poor in this country enjoy a lifestyle envied by even middle class people in most of the world. What have they done to deserve this? The idlest of the idle rich invest money and help other hard working people get ahead. The poor simply absorb tax payer funding and have babies.

    I can only speak for myself but the words and deeds of a much more respectable Rabbi demanded it.

    "What have the poor done to deserve our support?"

    They built and maintain this Nation. Do rich people do anything besides go to "meetings"?

    I think he was talking about those on welfare that choose to sit on there asses on welfare and do not even bother to look for work. Not the poor who look for work and are just having a hard time finding it.
    I'll answer the question, those who choose to sit on their asses and not help themselves do not deserve the help of others. Those that at least try to find work and do better for themselves deserve our help to get them on their feet.

    Excellent point. You should definitely report immediately to the housing project nearest you, state your case, and demand answers from those sumbitch leeches.

    Go on, report back and let us know how it goes.

    If you live in a state where people receiving TANF don't have to demonstrate that they are (A) working at least 20 hours per week or (B) applying for positions that meet that requirement, you should tell your state to start following the law.

    Fuck you bud, I am poor, and Conservative, and Work my ass off. I don't ask for hand outs. Other than the Retarded Amount of Money I get back in Tax Returns, Far more than I pay in, I don't Take welfare.

    But to insinuate that everyone that is poor is undeserving because they don't do anything, Is pure horse shit.

    They are the ones who clean up your shit, make your burger, and make sure Walmart has your favorite brand of Depends. You are douche bag Rabbi.
