Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for the rest of his life.
So how many folks on welfare are being taught how to fish... and more importantly, how many of them learn how to fish and get OFF welfare?
Everyone that has been on the dole and does not get off, is a person who is being held back from what they could be.... specifically being held back BY being on the govt dole. Now show me anyone living on the govt dole that is not poor? And then put 2+2 together... if you can.
Paying someone to not work is destructive to their growth as a person... plain and simple.
If you libs do not understand that... well IMO you libs are not smart enough to understand much at all... or they are voluntarily in denial.
