    Just to show you that liberalism on college campuses isn't anything new, here is a part of a Q&A Milt Friedman did at Stanford University in 1978. This little spoiled idealist, condescendingly, asks the brilliant Friedman "How free are the poor, how free are the unemployed, how free are the people who are disadvantaged? What is government's role?" Friedman proceeds to tear him and everyone else a new one. Pay attention to when some moron yells out "Have you ever been poor?" Friedman shuts him right up. Here is the vid:

    Much of what he has said here has been disproved by modern study - welfare recipients and their children, for instance, tend to be better off economically overall, than those who never take advantage of the program. So its quite the opposite of a 'poverty engine'.

    God I wish that man was still with us today. :(
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    You are deranged. EVERYTHING that man predicted would be the result of growing government happened EXACTLY as he predicted it would. Snap out of it, meathead.

    There is so much ignorance in this statement that I do not know where to begin.

    Taken strictly as stated, perhaps - (although I would like to see the studies as I suspect they are poorly constructed -as they run contrary to just about every single respected study out there), but it ignores so much and the implication you are trying to make is just a load of hogwash.

    Milton was 100% correct in every single statement he made.
