The poor are poor, generally speaking, because of a history of bad decision making. In North Georgia it's not unusual to see an expensive TV Dish and trampoline in a yard with a beat up trailer for a house. The lower class has different priorities. No amount of money thrown at this class of people, black, white, whatever - is going to change their mentality, so why not spend the money on decent museums that teach us about our culture and ourselves? I have no problem with Detroit selling off the art from their museums since the 47% illiterates never step foot inside museums and they won't miss what they've never appreciated in the first place.

Maybe if the cable companies would run service to our neighborhoods we wouldn't need that satellite dish. Oh, poor people shouldn't buy cheap land out in the country than they would have cable service. My trailer and home repairs have cost me $40000 in the last 30 years. How much have you wasted on that big house of yours? Those Dollar Store workers have to live somewhere.

Why NOT stop taking money from taxpayers for EITHER purpose; Let the rule be "WORK or STARVE" and no additional funds for additional children after the first one when you are on welfare.
Mowing the sides of roads, picking up trash, scrubbing the courthouse steps are examples of the "work for welfare" that could be done.
