They aren't "handouts," they're "bailouts," and somehow that makes all of the difference.

If your going to make accusations, please provide some document to show the data your posting is correct.

I am noting the ridiculous nature of a previously asked question.

If you can't handle it, move on.

I am not reposting threads.

If you can't grasp such basic things, move on if thinking hurts you too much.

you repost the exact same thread replacing words. it's boring. thinking doesn't hurt, but original thought seems to hurt you. come on, an original thread, not a reply to an existing thread. I will reply to your post. no republicans look to the government for a handout. you think all corporate people are republicans? please. no merit. republicrats and democrats might look for handouts, but give me a break.

Doesn't really matter what party you are referring to, if the handouts are there at all levels, people will take them. The Bailouts of the major companies is wrong, if they weren't doing well, let them fail and don't reward the mangers with "Golden Parachutes" when they did wrong or were incompetent.

Welfare at the other end of the spectrum is suppose to be a safety net, not a lifestyle (which it has become). If healthy and able Welfare recipients were given the choice to do public service to get a check or get a job, many would find gainful employment elsewhere, the one's that truly need it would still be there.

I am making a valid point.

Nope, it's unfortunate that you can't grasp such basic points.
