    Give up some of that portfolio Walrath

    Precisely. If they healthy and of a reasonable working age they should be made to work... not beg for welfare. We've stuck our poor in a poor *STATE OF MIND* and that's a very dangerous hole that we've dug ourselves into. Most poor would rather veg out and watch tv all night instead of read and learn new skills. Maybe if they put some effort into their own personal development they wouldn't be poor anymore... but like I said, they're in the "i'll always be poor" state of mind.

    BTW, I like your other point slayer about tipping. When I met my wife (she's very cheap) she gasped that I usually tip at least 25% even with bad service. I always told her that they needed the 2 or 3 extra dollars more than I did. I don't mind helping these people out because they're out there working and putting effort into their livelihood.
