SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Poor are lazy

“The notion that poor Americans just have to pull themselves up by their bootstraps (as the cliché goes), is much easier said than done.”

Saying most anything is easier than actually doing the same thing. Furthermore, it is definitely harder to work for a living than it is to fill out some papers and live off the work of others.

Remember one very important truth: Even though the government can print the money (to pay “wages” to non-earners), doing so leads to known and undesirable consequences that hurt everyone.
Here’s another cliché: There’s no free lunch.

Re: Transgender students offered continuous support

I am not sure how identifying oneself as LGBT during the admissions process translates into “showing support.” What are the “opportunities”? What are the “services”? What are the “programs”?
