Rock: They have a point, and if they wore a hat, it probably wouldn't be visible.

That was one of the more ignorant things you could say. First off, someone being poor doesn't make them a criminal, nor does someone being wealthy make them a model citizen. Secondly, Who are you to call anyone "low life scum?" I am inferring from your statement you do not mean just the bank robber, you mean the persons who stay in the low-income housing off Route 1?

Please reevaluate your assessment of less fortunate people. Most people in this country, as we see from the recession, are a paycheck or two away from the poor house.

In closing, get some sense and not assume everyone that is less fortunate is a miscreant.

Fun fact: President Jimmy Carter lived in public subsidized housing, guess he is low life too???

The Mecca: Welfare is only for rich corporations; the poor despair because they have no temporal savior.
