In nature a lazy squirrel would die if he didn't store his own nuts! Then, all the new offspring would be born from non-lazy squirrels and so would be good nut storers. Then all the squirrels would be healthy and happy and get along. The End.

I agree. But, working together doesn't mean 3 animals work while 6 do nothing but reap the benefits of the 3's labor.

I didn't imply that. I said "lazy squirrels" so, if you aren't lazy and are disabled or temporarily on hard luck, that didn't apply at all now did it?

I missed the part about disabled squirrels.. I'll have to go back and read it through again. I must have poor comprehension skills. What about squirrels who are born into an environment where not only do they not have ready access to nuts, they also have few avenues to transition into areas where nuts are ripe for the picking.. And may never even be taught to gather nuts in the first place. Say the other squirrels have the ability to help struggling squirrels, but instead feel they'd rather hold onto what they were born into and let the squirrels who were disadvantaged from conception and born into a morally bankrupt system of squirrel trickle down economics die off.. And justified it by writing off those squirrels who never had much opportunity in the first place by saying they should have taken squirrsonal responsibility.. It does kind of apply. You're entitled to your opinions, sure, but just so you know, life is not a Horatio Alger rags to riches yarn.

We have programs in place for the needy. We also have educational programs, job placement programs, after school programs, food stamp programs, day care programs, health care programs and on and on and on...if they cannot utiilize those programs to get back on their feet within a reasonable amount of time and serve time on the other side a a tax payer to returthe favor to others, then they are the lazy squirrels I speak of. And, that would exclude the elderly and disabled.

As someone who actually works for a nonprofit assisting the homeless, I can vouch for there being success stories. I can also attest to the fact that the system is severely broken, and though the programs you speak of do exist they're generally structured to enrich the already wealthy and make sure the poor stay that way. The prison industrial system is a prime example.. The way many of those programs work, they're almost guaranteed to keep the same poor families cycling through it and providing labor for next to slave wages for generations. I've noticed the qualifiers expanding.. What constitutes "disabled"? When you say "temporarily hard luck", what exactly does temporary mean, what is your definition of hard, and what, seriously, do you mean by luck? Id say my assessment stands.. I'm not saying you don't have valid points, I am saying you're only looking at the surface and not the whole iceberg.

48% of people on the dole is a HUGE iceberg of which the majority don't belong.

Statistics = more surface info.. I'm talking about the conditions that set people on that path in the first place. Should we give them fish instead of teaching them to fish? Sometimes yes, usually no.. Generally that does lead to a culture of entitlement. But should we do everything we can to teach them to fish instead of letting them die off and rationalizing it by blaming a poor work ethic? It's a specious argument because you're only talking about the end result, not the cause.

If you really want to get right down to it, being charitable should be a choice and not forced. Forced charity is robbery. There was a time when people took care of their own. Churches took care of the poor. Until the Government decided to take over and make helpless peasants out of the people instead of creating an atmosphere where there were jobs with decent wages left in this country. So, it is one thing to force people to help the truly needy, but to also force them to support lazy slackoffs better than they live themselves is going to far!

Just so ya know.. I like a lot of your stuff, you do pretty good work. Sometimes memes are just memes and I get annoyed by crack dealers and pimps on food stamps and cash benefits just as much as anyone. I just believe it's the system as a whole that needs an overhaul and until then I think it's really difficult to make the judgment call determining who deserves what, when and for how long. People are upset now and they want a simple solution to a complex problem that developed over centuries.. It won't happen overnight and sweeping reforms involving deep cuts, however well intentioned, would most likely do more harm than good.
