The Myth of Welfare’s Corrupting Influence on the Poor

Does welfare corrupt the poor?

Few ideas are so deeply ingrained in the American popular imagination as the belief that government aid for poor people will just encourage bad behavior.

The proposition is particularly cherished on the conservative end of the spectrum, articulated with verve by Charles Murray of the American Enterprise Institute, who blamed welfare for everything from higher youth unemployment to increases in “illegitimacy.” His views are shared, to a greater or lesser degree, by Republican politicians like the unsuccessful presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.


A World Bank report from 2014 examined cash assistance programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America and found, contrary to popular stereotype, the money was not typically squandered on things like alcohol and tobacco.

Isn't this like putting the cart before the horse? GOP lawmaker floats impeachment for Clinton

A Republican lawmaker is floating impeachment for Hillary Clinton, should the Democratic presidential candidate lock up her party's nomination and go on to win the White House.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said in a phone interview with The Hill late Monday that he believes Clinton improperly handled classified information on her private email server used during her time as secretary of State.

Brooks said that Clinton "would be subject to impeachment," adding, "subject to impeachment means that should the House and Senate so choose, she could be impeached based on offenses, high crimes and misdemeanors, that she has in all probability already committed."
Brooks pointed to a section in the federal code that prohibits the "unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material," though suggested other areas could also apply to Clinton.

"I don't know, off hand, whether her commission of these offenses is a legal barrier to running for president. But if Congress should so choose, it would be a legal basis for her removal from office," Brooks said later in the interview.


Are the Republicans that afraid of Hillary Clinton? Or is their hate for a Black President conveyed to their hate for a Woman President?

I have a job interview tomorrow 1st one in 32 years

Need some positive vibes.

This company called me, I never applied.

Update on the interview: I think it went very well, I interviewed with a team of 5 managers in a conference room, lot of good questions, a lot of in depth discussion about where I thought I would like to take the position.

Two hours worth of discussion and seemed very casual.

They got my name from a former colleague, so they already had a reference and insight into how I would work.

Here's who invited Kim Davis to meet the pope

According to an official Vatican statement, Kim Davis was among "several dozen persons" attending a reception at the Vatican embassy, "the pope did not enter into the details of the situation," and "his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support."

Moreover, it seems that the pope did not request Kim Davis be invited.

According to press reports, one man was likely responsible for Davis's invitation: Carlo Maria Vigano, a conservative church official who was appointed by Pope Benedict as Vatican ambassador to the United States (formally called the "apostolic nuncio").

The link is to a petition calling for the resignation of Vigano. This is just where I found the tidbit of information...
