  1. You are a pathetic commie- of course it got posted to yahoo-- yahoo is just another run of the mill stupid liberal site.

    The "poor" have been sticking it to the country for YEARS now-- I'm sick of supporting those parasites, thank you very much.

    The left is pathetic.

  4. Samatha, you should think about changing your line of work to community organize. Some where you've been brain washed & I feel sorry for you. Instead of taking sides, just report the story without to slant, and let the readers make up the own minds. Good luck in life.

  5. So, its OK to allow those who don't work to suck the life out of this country and suck the money out of everyone else's wallets? Republicans do believe in HELPING but we do not believe in SUPPORTING those who choose to do nothing. Why is it that Democrats think it is OK? And when will they stop their constant lies?

  6. When you say, "Given that 40 percent of children who don't receive early childhood education are more likely to become a parent as a teenager, 25 percent are more likely to drop out of school, and 70 percent are more likely to be arrested for a violent crime..." not only are you plagiarizing it from the page you linked to, you're bastardizing the math so it doesn't make any sense anymore. While much of your article has some merit, perhaps it's a lack of early childhood education that's holding you back there?

  8. I read the article as a Warning and as a forecast...people don't seem to get it these numbers are the result of so much corruption from the government to the banking system that we all stood by and watched when it happened witout anything done by our own government to pervent it, WHY? they all got their share.
    You guys who are slamming her for the article shood pull that silver spoon outta your @$$ because your government is going to make sure thats what you're gonna be using to feed yourself with, and what came out with it is your dinner unless the People stop it Soon.
    Samanatha you are very pretty by the way, and Please continue revealing what you find, who knows someday someone who can help stop it from happening may step up by an article you publish.

  10. Samantha, your article titled "How to stick it to the poor: A congressional strategy" is perhaps the worst article I have ever read on Yahoo. You should not be proud of it. You should be embarrassed. It is a liberal hack job. Please keep your hands out of my wallet. I know it is very easy for your type to spend other people's money, but please resist the urge to do so. Do you know how people survived before welfare and food stamps? They relied on hard work or help from family or charity. This is what we should go back to. There is no incentive for the "poor" to do anything to improve their situation. I actually feel that I lost IQ points reading your awful article.

  11. Thanks for the article Samantha.

  12. So what many of your commentors are suggesting is that we take away all assistance for the poor and throw that responsibility onto family or friends that can't afford to help them. Some people abuse government assistance, most do not. It seems like many of your opponents here have never experienced poverty, nor do they feel inclined to be generous to those who have. By steamrolling your article, they only make themselves look bad. Thanks for your article, Samantha. Perhaps the next step for you would be to neutrally compare the political left and right perspectives of this issue. That would be a fascinating article, and perhaps also a way to avoid raging commentors.
