I see you paid no attention to the meat of the article and assumed a stereotypical stance. Did you miss the part about letting criminals loose? or maybe the part about rape, lootings, murder? Possibly the part about shooting at rescuers and guardsman?

Everyone knows the welfare state doesn't work. Everyone knows that most (not all) people that get on it never leave it and don't have the desire to better themselves. Why should they? There's no incentive. Until it's taken from you and you have to resort to violence and stealing because all you know how to do is take from people.

There's plenty of other people there who don't resort to these violent tendencies that know what it feels like to actually loose something you've spent years building. These are the people the reporter was talking about when he made comments regarding The many decent, innocent people trapped in New Orleans when the deluge hit

I'd have some choice things to say about that "story", but what I've had to say has already been said before I got to it. Though this Tracinski character rattles on about worthless people taking advantage of a terrible disaster to rape and loot, it appears to me he is using this disaster to further his own political ideas. Sickening.

Oh, and @ Phantom16

They live off of welfare, figuring "hey, I have a steady flow of money, and because I'm underpriviledged or something, I don't hafta work for it!"[\QUOTE]

Til the last line, I thought you were talking about an episode of the OC. If you replace the phrase "I'm underpriviledged or something" with "my daddy's president of So and So Inc." I'd have sworn you were quoting a rich little daddy's-girl I met just yesterday. The attitude that expressed there is rampant across the board, at all social and economic levels.

Perhaps the best solution of all was right in front of us all the time.

The system does what it was designed to do. That is give people who are in trouble a chance to get out of trouble. The system fails when, in addition to the above, creates job opportunities for more government employees than is required, relieves citizens of earnings that can be spent more wisely, allows people who don't need help but rather need a cick in the pants to get a free ride, gives little incentive to the prospect of becomming free of the system.

A person in need is a person who needs us.

A person who's lazy is a person who bleeds us.

Well, I was making reference to the UK system; the US system, from all that I have seen of it, is markedly different in its impact. All I seem to have seen of the US system is black people travelling hundreds of miles on government buses, without reference to their family needs.

Which then cycles back into the question of whether such represents a genuine oppurtunity...

We'd need a more detailed explanation of the US system in practice; volunteers?
