Signed a petition to drug test welfare recipents.
I've always wondered if a plan that drastically cut benefits for people who were unwilling to work and to only provide for them the most basic housing/food. Probably in buildings that were set up for this were food was actually prepared on site. Think college dormitory or even like the bare necessities that a prison would have with the only difference being you could come and go. This should save a ton of money and only does the bare minimum for anyone trying to freeload. I would then take most of the $ saved and set up a system of wage subsidies that allows businesses to hire people for ...

"There may be some exaggerations" is exactly why I have some doubts. You seem to agree with me. I've already stated there are loopholes. Quite a while back in another thread years ago, I suggested a bunch of changes I'd make to welfare programs. I just wonder why the exploiting of these loopholes is brought up much more than exploiting of other loopholes. I also kind of think there are some pretty major exaggerations. My favorite part of it is #3 - the guy buys a house. If I was reading this article that would raise a flag for me. Especially when it is followed by the statement that ...

What a lot of people would have done here is posted your full point about how the difference in black marriage rates between 1950 and how applies to your position, then maybe added a link to your source if you felt it was necessary. As it stands im not completely sure of your point or why black marriage rates even apply to this discussion.

also this doesnt have anything to do with the idea that it is better to be raised by two adults than in a single family home. it just speaks to types of loopholes that exist in a system. people take advantage of loopholes in systems all the time and if it is only an argument about people taking advantage and the incentives we create, i think time and money can be a lot more wisely spent in places that really have cost us money. not sure why we are more worried about a single mother getting an extra hundred bucks or so then maybe some other places.

yea, obv that is a problem with the system. its not like i am for that or anything. that doesn't usually seem to be the argument brought forth by the anti-welfare people tho.

yea, i would imagine two adults at home has tons of benefits. i dont think that the reason that there are single parent homes has all that much to do with lots of singles staying single for the benefits.

and i assume you are saying it hurts poor families bc it is married adults with kids who should be getting the support and not "baby-mamas" all seems like a bit of a stretch.

Picture A Day
A friend did a bunch to it in Lightroom. I have to learn how to do some. I also want to figure out if it will look good blown up. I'm not sure and don't want to do a print unless it's good. Side note, Ernie Els saw the pic and wanted a print made, but I haven't found out yet if he actually did. I'd love to have him sign one for me.

Obama Scores Again: Deal With Iran
You can't laugh at 24 days, when you have no idea what goes into making a bomb and such. At least a few weapons experts say that it's basically impossible for Iran to just hide the stuff. Also we know how much uranium they are mining and seem to have plenty of ways to monitor the program.

Obama Scores Again: Deal With Iran
Didn't seem to work for China or Russia either. And if it doesn't work for Iran, then how do we keep an eye on nuclear program, I don't really know, but it seems that their breakout time is reduced quite a bit under this deal, going from 2-3 months to about a year. Is this wrong' As things were, they have a bomb sooner. Just seems like now wasn't too bad a time to pursue the difficult path to diplomacy. Where doesn't this deal allow inspections'

Obama Scores Again: Deal With Iran
So the first article even notes that the deal has provisions in place to inspect military facilities, so what this adviser is saying is against terms of deal and would obviously set off some sort of consequence if they actually did this. The second article is just schumer's probs with deal. I liked this quote tho, he doesn't want to deal, but does want to continue diplomacy....... "Schumer ends by urging the administration to "keep U.S. sanctions in place, strengthen them, enforce secondary sanctions on other nations, and pursue the hard-trodden path of diplomacy once more, difficult as ...

Where cant the IAEA look' I also believe there are other markers that would alert to weapon activity besides just seeing a room called "Nuclear Bombs Made Here". I don't think it is as easy to secretly make a bomb as you think it is. I maybe missed something though, what are the places that can't be inspected'
