77. I agree with your calculations, but we should not deny there is a real problem here

 

I know as an employer, a substantial percentage of the "working age" people cannot do simple things that would be required of just about any job: talk to customers in complete sentences, use a calculator to figure a percentage discount, etc.

Obviously hunger is not the solution to poverty, so I believe the food stamp program is a humane baseline, but it is not enough. I don't have all the solutions, but forcing every pregnancy to end up in a baby is not the solution either.

At a minimum, I'd say that anybody who is against choice has no right to complain about food stamps.
