“Ken, ya got me thinking, Your right, faith in the inherent goodness of the free market is just like religion. ya can't prove it but you have faith. People are not inherently greedy, yes, I've seen food drives down nere in florida that fill truckloads. Profit is essential for any business, but profit for profit's sake is not a positive value. I remember "good corporate men" who said their greatest asset was their employees. not so anymore. corporations will lay off people just to raise profits. You are right, I was being cynical.”

“Just basic economics. I don't get the analogy of a religion. Besides, people ain't gonna stop worshipping the golden calf. people are greedy, not socialistic. sad, but true.”

“You don't get the religious analogy? Really?.....In this country, we don't worship god. We worship wealth. For a large segment of society, faith in the inherit goodness of the "free market" is unquestionable. History, however proves otherwise. Also, people are not inherently greedy. In fact, we are all motivated completely by self interest. Which is not inherently bad, as long as you have the right kind of values, and live according to their corresponding virtues. Profit for profit sake, is not a value that I hold to.”

“You are right. wages and salaries are predicated on demand in the marketplace. If you have the necessary skills you will be paid a commensurate wage. There is a glut of people who do not have even a high school degree because of the high dropout rate in schools. If you are undereducated, you will be paid as such. Sad, but that is the marketplace rule.”

ken31857 on Nov 8, 2013 at 11:24:19

“Guess what, the marketplace is not a religion. Why do so many people treat it as such. Perhaps if we stopped worshiping the golden calf, we would have a more equitable society.”

“Life was tough then. During the depression, I've seen signs on houses, "children for sale, inquire within." now we have medicaid, welfare ebt cards, food pantries and safety nets. The worst americans can say is that people are "food insecure". Then, if you didn't work, you didn't eat. it was that simple. Things have definitily gotten better.”

“Don't be too sanguine, there are millions of homeless in America including 600,000 children. Millions more must rely on Food Banks for their sustenance, which is insufficient to meet their needs. Saying things are better than the depression is setting the bar extremely low. In a "rich" country there should be no homeless, especially children.”

Wyvern Wycliffe on Nov 7, 2013 at 12:28:11

“Well, you've seen one famous photo of such a sign, the provenance of which is not without its own controversy.”

“You know, when I was a kid, I figured the adults would run everything. Now that I'm an adult, I find that they can't. 'this is pathetic. I'm getting against politicians more and more. I don't think they can run a marble contest.”

jamal49 on Nov 7, 2013 at 02:44:13

“Don't blame all politicians. Just the Republicans. Democrats have been trying to move things along since 2008 and before. It's Republicans who keep mucking it up because if Republicans did their jobs, then government would work. And Republicans have a meme that says "government doesn't work". Government works quite well as long as Republicans are not involved.”

“Holy cow, he's a boy, and boys have an affinity to weapons. It is hardwired into us as a survival skill from 100,000 years ago. men killed game, women gathered nuts and roots. Kids want to shoot handguns to experience what it's like and parents refuse them. The biggest problem is the feminization of our school system. women want boys to act like girls and if they don't comply, they are drugged into submission. Fer chrissake, let boys who have a beef fight each other with gloves until they're over it. What's the harm? Now is the harm. Get boys away from liberal female teachers. Now!”

“What did people do during the depression when there were no foodstamps or welfare. answer: they worked.”

Heidi McClure on Nov 1, 2013 at 22:34:59

“They died.”

mamiller517 on Nov 1, 2013 at 19:17:57

“and they died hungry...in droves. Do you want that? There are abuses. I believe that if we made it illegal for wealthy people to get food stamps that would help. Did you know that a multi-millionaire can be eligible for food stamps and that there are some getting them? Did you know that you can have $100,000 in savings accounts and be eligible for full food stamp benefits? Did you know that your elderly granny can live in your mansion and get full food stamps if you claim she is paying all her retirement to you for rent and purchases and prepares meals separately? Instead of attacking those who are trying and do not have the money to defend themselves why not save by cutting people with true money in the bank OUT.”

“They should get rid of food stamps completely and go back to weekly welfare food box. the box had rice, cheese, (5 lb block) canned boneless chicken (never knew how they got the chicken in the can) canned bread and some other staples. It fed people, but they didn't get free money. worked pretty well. The number on welfare will continue to increase with the 50% high school dropout rate.”

mamiller517 on Nov 1, 2013 at 19:21:22

“Few get free money. If they are able they have to volunteer for the state. They actually have to come in dressed decently and perform clerical tasks so in effect they are working for the money they get. If they do not show up the money is cut off and in some cases so are the food stamps.”
