It is you, usmc, that is a moron. Assuming that you served honorably in the Marine Corps (not a sure thing), I respect and appreciate your service. But, not all social programs are "feel good ploys to fool the losers". They exist to care for veterans, the aged, the disabled, those that through no fault of their own have lost their work. These are Americans who believe in God and Honor and Public Service. They are not fools or losers. There may be cheaters out there but there are Marines that do not always do the right thing either and we do not vomit on all of them. I am a staunch conservative and your ideas are far different than mine. I think that you are just a selfish and small man.
