Why would you be against welfare so what do we do let all those poor people and there families starve I mean if there on welfare and they got jobs and they get jobs that are below minimum wage they could afford to eat and feed there families but if they have jobs below minimum wage and no welfare they are just gonna starve and die off and that is gonna happen to more then 40% of the US so you are inhumanily killing more then a huge fraction of this country if this went your way.

Welfare just causes laziness because people are getting money while they're no working, and some people use that to their advantage.

Minimum wage can be increased to ridiculous inflated levels by a government so that businesses, well, go out of business

I'm sorry about this next off-topic question, but, aren't you thegodddfather's brother? Yes, we all know Fred the pug is cute.*

LOL I know Thegodfather is very stupid and you are too but don't get me mixed up with they infected gene listen here if you don't believe in minimum wage people can be getting psyed 10 cents an hour and welfare is not just money its discounts on powdered and milk and all the cheap chemically enhanced foods now you might say yes to alot of people taking advantage of that but it doesn't pay u that much so you have to have money to begin with to be lazy and watch tv or something while the poor people as you say take advantage of it are sick wounded or mentally ill. So if you don't support welfare ok but if you don't support minimum wage the people who are not taking advantage of it are being payed very unfairly probably being abused or in any way working many hours a day for just pennies...

O and BTW I accidently put this in the comment spot because I am kinda new at this

I didn't say it would have to be abusive and/or grossly underpaid labor. If the worker doesn't like it, they can leave. But if they can't do anything else, they can keep the job. Oh, and the welfare, what I meant was people sitting on their a**es watching TV all day, not working and being paid for doing it. We can't afford it. You have to earn your own money.

but in a sense of what your saying someone could be in that situation and not be able to do anything.

If they have no choice, they have no choice. They do it or they starve. Simple as that. If they can afford to quit, they can quit.

Yeah I agree DucoNihilum, you both debated really badly, you both used the mainstream, easy graspable defenses of your positions:

"Welfare and minimum wage shouldn't be around because people on welfare watch TV all day and live off the government."

"Welfare and minimum wage should stay around because these poor people would die on the street."

If I had an IQ of 1.45, wouldn't be able to hen-peck this sentence right now. And, no, your bro is not retarded. Otherwise why can he even type out his debate questions?

Mike, you're a total fool. Both of you debate incredibly poorly, in fact- you however are cocky enough to think that you won this debate?! Your arguments weren't backed up by anything logical and you go off on random ad hominem attacks.

wow well one more thing to say: You are forcing that upon people by not giving them welfare or minimum wage so you ended up doing the inhuman thing I hope the voters see your choices as i do.

When I have time I'll do a real debate on welfare (I'm for it) if anyone is interested.

1: I know you people can't read right so I'll just come out and tell you your IQ was meant to say 1.45 (retard)
2: As for the other retard someone would have to be as retarded as he is to copy off his tests. That is all my friend

As for the stupidity question, I have an IQ over 145 (Genius IQ) and was thinking of attending the Mirman School. And as for thegodddfather, everybody cheats off of his tests, according to what he said. You were saying?
