    If you are not a paid Democratic spokesperson you certainly ought to be. What a pack of lies and exaggerations you weave. What’s sad is that there are people out their like you or who gain their beliefs through reading such drivel.

    Let me start by asking where exactly in the United States are people “starving on the streets” as you characterized it? Please answer.

    Second, when you say “many Conservative Republicans are attacking the unemployed as lazy”, please characterize “many”? Is 1 or 2 Senators many? And furthermore characterize “attacking”. Did you know that while advocating “private” charitable giving to the poor one of our nations first and greatest leaders Benjamin Franklin expressed concern over “creating dependency” amongst recipients of Government assistance. As did Thomas Jefferson and many of our nations Great leaders. Were they heartless?

    And instead of Characterizing Michael Tanner’s quote as somehow being off base perhaps you could enlighten your readers with one example of a Government Safety Net program that was eliminated have the arrival of better economic times. Come on…one please.

    Conservatives and Republicans are not evil and don’t run around with pitch forks and horns on their heads. Instead of calling names use your writing skill to argue why your point of view is better. Merely calling names, exaggerating and lying is sophomoric.

    PS- I found your article through a Google search while trying to research information on my company’s annual food and clothing bank awareness campaign. Just something we heartless conservatives tend to do better and more often than you liberals.
