    Salvation Army to name one, there are many smaller and lesser organizations that do help without government aid. Charities don't only collect at Christmas either, that's when they get the most attention. Most food banks, because of the economy, are in desparate need but still continue to help the less fortunate day in and day out.

    Are these comfortable situations? No, nor are they meant to be. They are there as safety nets, and for some life-lessons....

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Why? Don't you have something of value to offer? If you did, you would abhor the nanny state.

    I love how typical liberals can find fault with charity or for that matter any Christian venture yet the islamo-fascists can do no wrong.

    Would you prefer they didn't give food out at Christmas? For your liberal education (in doubt), there is a Christian :eek: food pantry in my county that feeds nearly 500 families a month. Must be an extended Christmas.

    Bullshit. People survived before the government under FDR got involved in all these give away programs. You had to root hog or die; charities and churches did pick up the slack for the poor.

    People like you are so fucking stupid. My dad lived thru the depression. He could not go to high school because his dad was too poor to BUY the books. It was only after the Kingfish came into office that books were given free of charge. We have become a nation of people looking for handouts. Democratic politicians want to give more to the lazy and mothers with bastard children which just creates a never ending cycle of poverty and crime.

    Because that's not how this country was set up from the beginning.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    DIMoRATS apparently do. Their policies have driven more peole into poverty and homelessness than ever before seen in this country. Foodstamps-Alltime high. Foreclosures- Alltime high. Joblessness- Alltime high.
    Yep, those compassionate DIMS are SOOO good for those por people.
