“Stay clear of stuff like DMT- it is bad news”

John Nemesh on Dec 9, 2013 at 18:23:07

“what's "bad" about it? It gives you a very intense, very short trip...it won't kill you, and as far as I know, you cant overdose. An hour later, you are sober again. Sounds like someone had a bad "trip".”

“ok- then why do they have kids!”

Sherrie Heckendorn on Dec 5, 2013 at 15:56:02

“@dandan1 Ever dawn on you that you may lose jobs or have the economy tank after you have had children? Are you now saying that the only people allowed to have children are the 'rich'?”

“lol!
I'm willing to take that chance. But the truth of the matter is - if you moved, more of MY tax dollars would actually be used for stuff I think is important - instead of being wasted on the MIC.”

“tell you what... my mother's family were the poorest family in the poorest county in America.... it reaches 30 below zero and they had no electricity and used wood for heat (needless to say they never sank to food stamps)... there is no such thing as poverty in America anymore... it simply does not exist.”

“surrealist poetry?”

“No - a simple request. You seem very unhappy here. And, in your own words, "ARE FED UP". So - in order to spare you further anguish, you probably should move some where where you will not be so unhappy.

Perhaps, if you have a mind, you might propose some solutions to the problems in this country, rather than simply voicing your anguish over living in it.”

“Why are they having kids they can't afford?”

RT316 on Dec 4, 2013 at 08:52:59

“Really? I heard a caller on the radio yesterday explain the he, his wife and three kids were going along through life just fine until he lost his job. He never need food stamps before but he choked back his pride because HIS KIDS WERE HUNGRY.

Now tell me, does he have to kill the kids off because you might have to kick a few bucks a year to help feed his family? What kind of di*k are you?”

“So very Christian of you.
I'm sure Jesus is VERY proud of you.”

“Wow, you hurt my ears with all that yelling. Who says they aren't both working and who says their situation didn't change after they had kids? What about the Catholic church's belief that birth control is unacceptable? Are you saying married couples should just always abstain? What about accidental pregnancies ... yes, they do happen. Though I do agree that in general couples, or singles, should not have children they cannot afford, sometimes there are situations that just occur.

And, most importantly, once these children are born, whatever the reason, we as moral Americans cannot sit by and let them go without food.”

Sherrie Heckendorn on Dec 5, 2013 at 01:24:36

“@dandan1 Oh for goodness sakes-are you aware that a person working full time at min wage will not be able to meet even the basic of needs? Are you aware that there are still three to four times the unemployed as jobs available? Are you aware that food stamps also feed the elderly, disabled, children and yes the working poor who already work full-time? Who said anyone was staying at home with their kids? How sad that you begrudge the poor food to eat. I sincerely hope that you never know what its like to be poor in the worlds wealthiest country.”

JTartist on Dec 4, 2013 at 20:13:21

“All the more perplexing is the Republicans want to abolish birth control and abortions and get rid of food stamps. Can you consider the actual results of that? Or can Republicans think that far ahead?”

“Then perhaps it's time to tax the rich sufficiently so that we call all eat. That should be obvious as the rich wouldn't have a dime if it weren't for the nation that supports them.”

Fred54 on Dec 4, 2013 at 09:48:47

“dandan, you're shouting. These kids are already born, and it is inhuman to starve them. Many of these parents are working, but employers are paying low wages and having people work short weeks, not paying a living wage. Stop making assumptions about people who need help.”

“It's simple the urge to have children is greater than the economic cost. However why did you get married if your wife has to work?”

“we can't move forward as a nation/society if people are making decisions to have kids they can't pay for!”

Mikdow on Dec 4, 2013 at 10:30:37

“People are going to reproduce. It's a human drive. An intellectual argument is not going to change that. As long as the right wing refuses to acknowledge reality we can't move forward.”

“first if you do not ave kids and are able-bodied you should not get food stamps- second you should not have kids if you can't support them.”

Jorgenoe on Dec 4, 2013 at 09:13:03

“dandan1 based on your logic only the 1% would have kids.”

uk2us on Dec 4, 2013 at 09:02:28

“Amazing what you can induce from a single graph isn't it? Not all "able bodied" people have jobs, and not all people are in poverty and decide to have children, and even if they did its not for you to tell them when or why they should have them. But hey from your pic I do see you follow the "open cast mining" version of political literature, so your comment while somewhat against the principles of our constitution does speak volumes.”
