    There has never been need for Welfare until the government told people they needed it.

    BS that is why our men and woman are being killed overseas with thier hands being tied buy Obama and they can't do what they need to protect themselves. However it still doesn't change the fact that Obama is the worst president in my lifetime and if Obama had his way we would not have had the information that they needed to get the muslim terrorists. But keep changing the issues to cover up for a failed Presidency and an elitist socialist jerk.

    I remeber my mom saying the bums would multiply. Welfare cases raise welfare cases. I watched a Judge Judy where a mother who we had paid to raise her daughter was now being cared for by the daughter that we pay.

    As a world traveler and American citizen who served his country during Viet Nam '73-'76. Let the lay abouts find some where else to go. Critical thinking is fundamental? What does that, pray tell, mean? Critical reading, critical writing, and critical speaking are just as important.

    Idiot? I was wondering when the name calling was going to come into play. Apparently you have no idea what you are typing, thinking reading or saying. I was trying to figure out what you were trying to convey. Apparently hate is all you have, oh by the way, the one who starts with the name calling loses. So long.

    Whenever a handful of people see something they don't like and usually don't understand they cry out "Government has to do something" because they don't realize that government tends to take a problem and in attempting to resolve that problem, makes things worse or spawns other problems.

    What Welfare and the bogus work programs of the 1930s did was muscle out legitimate charities and extended the Depression. Roosevelt and his economic advisers had cause and effect reversed. They did not recognize that prices had fallen because of the Depression. They believed that the Depression prevailed because prices had fallen. The obvious remedy, then, was to raise prices, which they decided to do by creating artificial shortages. Hence arose a collection of crackpot policies designed to cure the Depression by cutting back on production. The scheme was so patently self-defeating that it's hard to believe anyone seriously believed it would work.

    Industry was virtually nationalized under Roosevelt's National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933. Like most New Deal legislation, this resulted from a compromise of special interests: businessmen seeking higher prices and barriers to competition, labor unionists seeking governmental sponsorship and protection, social workers wanting to control working...

    But the initial enthusiasm evaporated when the NRA did not deliver, and for obvious reasons. Even its corporate boosters began to object to the regimentation it required. By the time the Supreme Court invalidated the whole undertaking in early 1935, most of its former supporters had lost their taste for it.

    Striking down the NRA, Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes wrote that "extraordinary conditions do not create or enlarge constitutional power." Congress "cannot delegate legislative power to the President to exercise an unfettered discretion to make whatever laws he thinks may be needed."

    The best the US could hope for is that the government does nothing.

    I was schooled with the same myths until I attended private school and took Economics (no, not Home Economics...), learned about Keynesian theories and studied books by Milton Friedman.
    Free to Choose:


    The public (government) schools here teach history as written by the Democratic Party, ie., Government good, business bad and it shows as Hawaii is among the top five states rated as "hostile to business".

    I know I'm preaching to the choir with you but if there is a possibility one or two other people will learn it is worth the time invested.

    I agree, however it's sad that many people "in need" take advantage of the system for the rest of their lives.
