Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Original post)

Thu Jan 5, 2017, 12:26 PM

68. I kind of get that.

 

"Let him who will not work, not eat" was a refrain I heard many a time.

Everyone in my family, even my liberal mom, had and has utter contempt for anyone who isn't either working or trying to find a job, unless they are literally a quadriplegic.

It is a frame of mind that I fight, but that rises up strongly whenever I see a beggar.

Being a union guy, an environmentalist, having lots of GLBT friends and not caring for an imperialist foreign policy, I vote Democratic in any partisan election. But I understand where that mindset comes from
