OD has a wonderful habit of not understanding what he is reading or picking something completely irrelevant to point to.
The Mormon church is a semi-socialist organization. From Woman's Relief Society to Bishop's warehouse, Mormons are cared for by their church from cradle to grave. Crony employment is the order of the day for Mormons. Yet. They do not drink or smoke.
Here One Degree. Did you read this in your article?
But researchers over the years have shown that the effects of alcohol on this culture are also due to genetics
Maybe you forgot. No. Just trolling. Huh?
My question is this. Is drinking naughty? Does God hate it? Is that why it is bad for a welfare recipient to drink? Or maybe you hate the alcohol industry and are mad that they are getting money. Or maybe it is poverty that is naughty. Is that it? Welfare recipients should be punished by not allowing them to drink? How about eat a candy bar? Surly that is naughty too. Should welfare recipients not be allowed to own a television? That is naughty. And a computer. Poor kids do not need computers for homework. Only rich kids need that.
Hey One Degree. I have a question for you. You say that having money makes welfare recipients buy booze and cigarettes. You said it is the money that does this. Here is my question. I earn a shit-ton of money. I could literally buy a winery and cigarettes are pocket change. How come I drank way more when I had less money and
smoked and now I drink way less and do not smoke at all yet I have a lot of money. Why is that? Did something go wrong in my case?
You like statistics. Here is one for you to explain. (Yes I am making fun of your absurd "statistics".)
Shoe machine operators are twice as likely to die of alcoholism than the average American.
Does someone like you who gets the biggest two welfare programs in the country, Social Security and Medicare, spend their money on booze and cigarettes? If not why not? If you had a point surely you can answer that.
OD Asked speaking of one tribe of Native Americans: 80% are unemployed. Do you have evidence they are being denied the benefits of our safety net?
Duh. Do you really not understand how absurd your question is? Or maybe it is what Hindsite said of Bernie Sandiers. ....low IQ? You modern "conservatives" seem to be enamored with it. Is that it? Because the rest of us here understand wh.....no. You do it. You answer the question. Do you actually believe that people who get welfare drink more than they would without welfare, but with a good paying job?
It is no fucking wonder that Trump is president. All he had to do is make arguments like yours and the "if you hear banjos, paddle faster" crowd was stunned.
"We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated." Trump.
"I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters, okay? " Trump
The American dream is about freedom. Pelosi
