Im not saying either one is very wealthy but my dad owns a house in the suburbs of queens and my mom owns a 2 story out here in katy its all about the effort you put in how hard you work and save and the most important part living within your means and not being lazy neither one makes more then 40gs a year but me and my sister have never gone hungry and never lived in a ghetto

you don't question the gov't ability to decide who should/shouldn't be on welfare, and yet you question the war.

it's not that i don't question it. i'm sure there are people abusing the system and i'm sure it could be more proficient, but i don't think it can compare to the 250 million dollars that we spend on the war every day. i think it's a trivial issue( like abortion, gay rights, etc) that republicans like to blow up instead of real issues

What's your definition of a "yuppie"?

my definition is the dictionary's definition.

A young city or suburban resident with a well-paid professional job and an affluent lifestyle.

Well most people with well-paid professional jobs are educated. So you don't think that well-paid, educated, professional people know anything about poverty or who needs government assistance?

I don't think because someone is "educated" means they have a firm grasp of what happens in the real world, or at least outside of Starbucks(just kidding). I'm not saying they know nothing about poverty, but I think people who actually experience it probably know more about it.

I don't understand what you mean. So educated people (or 'yuppies') don't live in or have a grasp of what happens in the real world? A higher salary doesn't make you exempt from life's problems, bro.

People unable to support themselves and their 82 kids then wanting a piece of my paycheck (that I busted for) are the one's living in a fantasy world. There's not much more to know about it.

And I have to disagree with your poverty statement. I didn't have to experience WWII to know what it was about and what caused it. Even so, I probably know more about it than some people who lived through it.

on another note, at UH i heard black students exchanging the ways they use finanacial aid to get their gold chains and rims........

basically what i heard was they get financial aid since their poor, they load up on classes typically around 18 hours, get the financial aid check based on 18 hours, and after the 3rd week and official roll call, they drop classes to about 6-9 hours, and keep the financial aide for the 9 hours they dropped...

so these guys know how to screw the system into helping them.

the question is whether it is the proper role of government to provide welfare programs? Is this CONSTITUTIONAL? Does it have anything to do with what govt ought to do? I don't think so. I think it is an abuse of government power. Plus it's wasteful, encourages laziness, dependance etc

This may happen but lets not limit it to any particular group of people...I know a significant number of students (that happen to not be black) that look for ways to get around the financial aid system to buy je skii's, furnish and live in huge plush apts and buy weed...among other things. These don't seem to be legitimate uses of financial aid money to me, but I don't view that as a white, asian or other kind of problem...that's just people! It's not right...but it's not just blacks, that's for dayum sure...
