    I doubt half of that get to people. The administration needs to be compensated really well for providing this service after all.

    Yeah, it's pretty much like those 52 cents a day sponsorships. "Give us 52 cents a day and we'll make sure 2 cents gets to the children."

    And many, if not most, of the recipients have paid nothing into it, no taxes whatsoever.
    Kind of like "free social security" and "free retirement" for doing no work whatsoever.

    No wonder our economy is going down the toilet.

    It would be like that if Sally Struthers could kick in your door, shoot your dog, seize your house and lock you in jail for not sponsoring.

    And the poor little african kids could vote themselves 60 cents a day and more Sally Struthers with NFA shotguns.

    The most upsetting thing about this is

    If converted to cash payments, hourly rate exceeds median income by 20%

    I don't want people starving in the streets but you shouldn't be able to live better on welfare than if you work full time.

    I don't want to see anyone hungry, or homeless, in need of health care, or lacking anything necessary to live happily or in good health.
    No matter if they are young or old, of any race or ethnicity, nor any national origin..

    I do not however accept that their need constitutes a claim on me or my life and energy.

    I do not recognize any damned open-ended "social contract, the terms of which are continually subject to expansion and ever-increasing liability at the whim of society or government.

    Another word for such an arrangement is servitude, and I didn't sign up for that. I was born a free American and freedom from forced servitude is at the core of my birthright as an American.

    To submit to forced servitude, to provide for others to whom you have no actual obligation, at the sacrifice of your own life and interests...

    Now, GET BACK TO WORK!!!
