The Corpse Of Compassionate Conservatism

It's proudly on display at The Corner:
Seems like there ought to be a stigma attached to the use of welfare. A little bit of shame can go a long way toward encouraging people to find jobs. The federal government may think it's doing people a favor by providing them with access to food, but it's doing them a disservice if it also robs them of the motivation necessary to break free from dependency.

Sure, because in this economy, the one and only reason people would be hungry is because they’re just too damn lazy to get a fucking job.

Thanks for maintaining the stereotype of the clueless conservative with absolutely zero understanding of poverty in America. I knew you folks were out of touch, just didn’t know how much.
