Whoops. That's basically just a repeat of the same story that happened in Florida. I meant to post that on another site, but instead I posted:

State Budget Cuts Force West Texas Planned Parenthood Clinic To Close

- which made no sense at all in the conversation about voter fraud.

Good catch. I had too many window's open. I don't even know how I did this. :oops:

Women being born caused a Planned Parenthood location to close?











Actually, that might be true.

When you're born a woman, you are born a slave to your own reproductive cycle. Well, you know what I mean.

I get the feeling that you think anyone who takes government assistance is "living off the government." I will agree that there are people who will gladly sit at home and be happy taking what the government will give them. However I feel many who are getting government assistance would love to be self sufficient. So I ask this question. How do you propose getting the people off government assistance? I am not asking about the one who are happy taking assistance just the ones who want to be self sufficient.

You get people off government assistance by getting the government out of the way of the private sector which creates the jobs necessary for self-sufficiency.

Also, if Planned Parenthood was providing such a vital service, people would have given them money instead of them getting their funds from the government. Obviously this location couldn't live without the government, so it got closed.

A lot of people who are on assistance now or on it because the private sector cut jobs. But I do notice one change in your position high lighted above. When have you become an advocate for jobs necessary for self-sufficiency?

So in the time it takes for government to move out of the way and the private sector to create those jobs of self-sufficiency what are the jobless supposed?

Go to private charities which help with the jobless.

But there's more to it when the federal government is "out of the way."

You don't have federally mandated minimum wage, so as it's set in a competitive environment, you'll see some variance in the amount of unemployed due to different minimum wage laws.

You won't have one-size-fits-all regulation which increases the startup and transaction costs of creating/expanding businesses or even providing basic services which the federal government used to provide (no more crowding out).

etc.


Then we can simply ask you the same question when the federal government cuts its spending, and if your answer is not sufficient (according to our ideologies), then we'll conclude that the government must continue spending 30+% of GDP of "essential" services. We'll also assume that the private sector would not provide enough of such goods, and that it couldn't be as efficient.

I'm not a proponent of a "living wage" that Player is always crying for. People should get paid based on the talents they provide for the company. If people don't provide a talent to the company worth living off a single paycheck, then they're going to have to find a second job or a new job. It's not the company's job to pay them more out of pity.

And we have to wean people off government dependency. We have to cut back the 99 weeks of unemployment paychecks and start cutting back the amount of welfare distributed to people who are able to work yet aren't. It's not the government's job to provide a living to those who simply choose not to work, nor is it supposed to be a bailout to people who can't find work, beyond the unemployment money the companies had already contributed.

If someone can't find a job and runs out of benefits what are they supposed to do? Tough luck? Go hungry? If you don't care about them, and that is the impression I get from your posts why should they care? Let them steal to get money? I am not a proponent of the government just throwing money at people for nothing, but saying tough luck to those who are having a tough time just doesn't sound right to me.

How do we wean people off government dependency? Why aren't you a proponent of people making a living wage?
