Quads,hunting and fishing? in Detroit,Chicago etc?…doubtful. You best put down the crack pipe and back away slowly. If you don't believe that generational welfare exists you are lying to and/or deluding yourself. Put generational welfare into Google, you will find plenty of evidence to support that it exists.
As well, I am sure that some Christian right wingers support the half trillion the USA spends on war each year, that said its highly unlikely all do and your painting ALL of them with that broad brush is ethically bankrupt.Doubtless there are other left wing Democrat type moonbats just like you :) that support and earn a living from the war industry.
I do agree that the USA with all its resources and wealth shouldn't have the problems with poverty they do, and it is sad that that condition exists not just in the USA but worldwide. I would bet that if the USA/Russia/China etc put the time, money and energy into feeding the world, ending disease, and famine they could accomplish it in no time.
You can go on speaking for and hating me now, you know the Christian right wing you loathe so much.
True to form, you're better with ad hominem attacks then an argument backed by facts or statistics, (the quads, hunting fishing thing is in reference to your buddy Farmer's post, where he seems to thin that's what people that aren't working are doing with all their time.)
I did google intergenerational welfare (seems odd that I have to do your research for you….), or the claim that people on welfare are teaching their children how to collect. Seems like the basis for this latest talking point is from some paper looking at the Norwegian system for evidence. I found a paper that dissects the data and finds fault with the conclusion . It's an interesting read…
The headline results seem pretty strong evidence for the dependency culture idea yet when you go further into the data, you see a very different picture:
The sample of data is restricted to parents with adult children at the time that the parents appeal decision is heard by a judge. These arent children growing up in a home where DI is received throughout childhood. In fact, they are at least 18 and likely older at the time the parent starts claiming DI
The authors find no evidence of the parents DI receipt affecting the adult childs receipt of any other form of social assistance which doesnt fit the idea that there is a general reduction in the stigma of claiming benefits
But you're welcome to google your own argument and provide data, stats or any 'facts' you have. I'm sure we'd be very interested in reading your sources.
