Each generation that grows up on welfare becomes more entrapped by its seductiveness, so there is little hope. Children will live what they learn and the UK and the U.S. are teaching children that the government owes them a living.
In upstate NY, there are so many unemployed, but they won't do handyman work, lawn work, or even give estimates on roofing, because their benefits are better sitting home. They don't mind admitting that.
Conservative economists have always argued against a minimum wage. That is in reality keeping wages lower than if there were a free market price for labor.
grammar correction to typo: "all of whom, not all of who!"
Such thoughtful, insightful observations this morning! Our compassion is killing the West. "It's not the children's fault that their parents or single moms are irresponsible. If we don't give children welfare and benefits of all kinds, they won't have a chance." Similarly, it's not the children's fault that their parents came here illegally, so now we must allow entry into college and in-state tuition. It benefits us all.' The immigration problem is killing the West. After one imported group decides it's easier not to work, a new group of Third World immigrants must be imported to do minimum wage jobs. Sweden imported Turks, then Bosnians, all of who are deciding not to work and living in ghettoes, hostile to their host country.

Any Republican who is not A RINO, according to fervent conservatives, would lose a general election. Santorum dragged the party into low poll numbers everytime he opened his mouth. The other candidates were gaffe-prone and/or unlikeable. I don't know why Republicans can't understand that they comprise only 25% of the electorate, and conservative Republicans less than that. A slightly right -of- center candidate who is focused on the economy, wholesome, Presidential in stature, and in possession of great intellect is a fine choice, and moderates will pull the lever for him. We must have moderates.

Well expressed. Romney has been in the public arena for 40 years with not a hint of scandal. He is a wholesome, godly family man who is 'incandescently bright" by the assessment of all who have worked with him. C'mon folks. Do your esoteric research on Obama. Oh, that's right. All his records are sealed and his past concealed by the press. This columnist is not thoughtful, and his intellect is not half of Romney's.
I use the incorrect spelling of "editor" as humor, lest anyone misunderstand. I am one, and I wish we could edit our typos here. .
Calling this kind of speech insipid and juvenile is like calling a murder dumb. Words have meaning. His speech was appalling, and the response is what was insipid. That man should never be invited to any legitimate group of responsible people.
The tirade was unprofession delivered before a student journalism group. High school journalism had very high standards back in the Dark Ages of the early 1960's. Conferences were about writing and appropriateness, fact checking and grammar. How far we've come. this isn't about bullying; it's about the content of this disgraceful man's speech to a student group.
