DWV, statements like these are what cause me doubt.

1. I'm not responsible for other people screwing up - assumes everyone in need is there because they messed up.

2. It's not my fault if you can't make better decisions to improve your situation - assumes everyone in dire straights are there because of bad decision making.

3. People in financial trouble are there because they overspent their means - more assuming.

You seem to only want to focus on people who **** up, and therefore it's not the goverment's responsibility to help them. In the past few pages I haven't seen you mention anything in regards to those who end up in tough shape simply because of a bad luck of the draw. Or how, we as a society, are responsible to help them out via social programs and the taxes we pay to support them.

Your overall negativity towards anyone who requires assistance over the course of the discussion is what turns me off.

You need help? It's your own damn fault. :(

1. I already distinguished between people creating problems vs uncontrollable circumstances.

2. I already admitted not everyone is in bad positions because of poor decision making and that we SHOULD help them.. ie - being born into it, unplanned pregnancy, etc

3. I already said it's one of MANY problems that CAN be a factor.

Seriously, do you even read my posts or just browse them in a fit of rage and miss all the points? I don't have negative views of people who need assistance, I have negative views towards those who don't even try to better their position(WHEN POSSIBLE, another point I covered) when the problem is one they created.

At least you managed to not throw insults this time around.

Take Republicans pushing drug testing for welfare recipients

It costs more to do the tests than to just let some junkies eat

This is the kind of stuff where we have differing opinions. On one hand I agree that its ****ty to base receiving welfare on passing a drug test. On the other, if you know you need to be clean to get welfare, than get fucking clean or AT LEAST try, my god, and if you can't get clean right away at least show some effort by going to meetings or seeking free assistance.

It's the main overall tone. Yes you've snuck in some of those things but your main tone is one of almost resentment to anyone who has to lean on the government.

And it's not rage. Maybe a bit of alcohol haze, but not rage.

DwnWthVwls 04-29-2017 12:21 PM

Almost resentment, isn't resentment, and yes there is a tone, because I'm annoyed that we grow up learning that we have to take responsibility for our screw ups... Being grounded, bad grades in school, parent lectures, etc and then we turn into adults and it's all thrown out the window? No, I'm sorry, that's just not how life works, you don't get a free pass because the government offers assistance and you don't have parents to coddle you.

It's also not ANYONE who has to lean on the government it's a very specific group of do nothings. Maybe, it's not specific, but it's the attitude of these people that I have a problem with.

So are you ever going to make a point as to why I should think differently or are you just going to keep complaining about my position and not try to show me why it's a poor one to hold?

I get that your disappointed or annoyed with me for thinking differently, I really don't care. Change my mind, present examples, provide counter points.. Demonstrate how it's good for society as a whole to be treated like children and never strive to improve problems through action.
