BruceCM: "And giving a poor person anything other than basic subsistence will do that person more harm than good. They have no idea where that money came from nor what was done to originally earn it. If you continue giving it, it will be viewed as an inalienable right. None of these individuals will contribute anything to the economy....only take from it. And any money going into the black market, to include illicit drugs, prostitution or other graft, does nothing to improve the economy but will do a great deal to our moral fabric."

You need to meet some of the tens of millions of working poor who are harder working and more honest and ethical than you will ever be.

BruceCM: "You sound like someone who didn't graduate from high school and is angry at the world."

I think you inadvertently painted a very ugly self portrait with your post.
