According to alphamale, the poor are getting more without effort and initiative, so why are they getting more without any effort and initiative while I am not?

You think they're so dense that they wouldn't be able to comprehend WHY their slice has shrunk? They can't make the connection between more in the wagon and everybody having to cut back?

You're the wrong kind of poor. The poor on which government funding is lavished are those who bear multiple children which they can not afford to care for.

The exponential growth of the welfare-dependent class is financially incentivized by our own government. Who doesn't know this by now?

Yes, without a doubt.

Witness the fact that those receiving public assistance have a birth rate 3 times higher than everyone else.

What do you propose, Trickle UP????

The big question is why have those who have argued for years that trickle down doesn't work have little to nothing to say about the largest trickle down program in the history of the world coming from the government the last 5 years.

How much of the billions of dollars that the government has pored into the markets has reached your pocket? That's a general question to answer your question as I'm sure you are going to get those who jump in stating how great it has been for them but for the lower and middle classes it has not reached them.

They are the ones who will have to pay it all back also. So even if you have seen a little it will be taken back.
