  • 'the poor' need to earn their own living. Giving them a pittance isn't going to help them. Its a slap in the face and keeps them poor looking for hand outs like a beggar. They need to be taught how to work and earn a living so they can take pride in what they do and what they have EARNED and never have to beg for a handout again. And again you need to learn about macroeconomics. Socialism has never worked. Here's proof where three nations tried it and abandoned it: https://www.heritage.org/progressivism/commentary/three-nations-tried-socialism-and-rejected-it You need to learn math! The numbers don't add up!! Take accounting while you're at it.

      The bottom rungs of the economic ladder are also occupied by the "working poor", not just unemployed people. People who just earn enough to get to work and back home. (in the name of "profit") We have to have "minimum wage" laws because some employers pay as little as is legally required, and if not for the laws they would pay even less.

      Yeah, they tried raising the minimum wage in the liberal states and many who got a raise were then ineligible for food stamps. Not to mention the fact it closed a lot of mom and pop stores because they couldn't afford the higher wages. Show me proof where this has worked. It only fuels inflation. Oh, and by the way I lived off those 'bottom rungs'. I was the working poor and managed to raise a son with no financial help from his father without ever stealing, looting, or selling drugs, so don't tell me it can't be done. People are just greedy nowadays, and not just the rich! Poor people think others should pay their way just because they exist!! Well if you believe The Bible it says 6 days shalt thou labor. It also says man shall eat by the sweat of his brow. Not give everyone a handout and take the money from those that work and give it to those who won't!! That's thievery, and it could cost you a hand in some places of the world!! But anyone can voluntarily help anyone they want. That's benevolence, not giving away SOMEONE ELSE'S MONEY!! There's nothing noble or benevolent about giving away taxpayer money the government stole from the people who work for a living.

      Also don't come up under my answer criticizing it. Post your own answer, or I'll flag you for trolling!

      Zotron, the working poor are free to move up the ladder. Many already have. Capitalism has created more wealth for more people than any other economic system. And if you're not happy with the wage you're making, you're free to go to another employer that pays more. Competition for quality employees is what drives wages, not some arbitrary government mandate.
    • Zotron
      I don't think I criticized your answer. I think I merely stated that a lot of people work and are still poor because some companies are more interested in their bottom line than their employees. And, uh, btw, if I wanted someone to yell at me I would have tried harder to keep my wife. :)
    • Archie Bunker
      As a business owner, you should be concerned with your bottom line. The employees can be replaced, the business cannot.
  • Why should anyone "give" the poor money? WTF does that do for them? Stop looking for handouts.
    • Linda Joy
      Like pigs at the trough, being slopped with taxpayer money the government steals from people who work and give to people who won't! Its disgusting! Even for those who need it! They should be allowed to so something in exchange for the money to give them a little self respect!!
    • Archie Bunker
      It's not that they "should be allowed" to do something in exchange, they should be required. Hell, I'd be happy with a drug test.
  • For a start we need our own bank so we can benefit from the interest. Remember the economy is purely based on how much money the private banking system is willing to print IOU's out of thin air, as that controls the labour force (ie the plebs/serfs), of course we live in a debt society, it can only be that way because all money is an IOU, so eventually the whole thing will collapse, and as planned no one will own anything, it will all be rented and upgraded and so all power will be forwarded to the those wealthy land owners and big corporations. We will end up a cashless society, and will just be exchanging numbers. We also need to create our own IOU's, or go back to bartering. Not sure we can do much about gold and silver, that was taken off our ancestors many years ago, in exchange for the paper we use today. If the banking system collapsed tomorrow everyone would realise that those notes in their purses which they think is money, is really just bits of paper, no more than monopoly money not worth a damn thing.
