    "I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it."

    I agree with Ben for those who are able bodied.

    Rather an off topic reply.

    Your fighting of welfare reform directed at those very folks makes you a fibber.

    And perhaps it is off topic. I actually like Ben Franklin. I'm really surprised to see you quoting him.

    Ben was a very savvy fellow. Have you read his book, "The Autobiography of Ben Franklin"?

    You can download a PDF file of this book at:

    I gotta wonder why you ignore us on these threads….

    …..then act like we should engage you in serious conversation.


    I find your admiration of the man kinda dubious, he seems to stand against everything you support.

    Bromance...that's funny. Seriously though, I can't state my favorite Ben Franklin quote as I'd get banned ... But it happened 'bout the time lightening hit that kite.

    Your thinking and thus your understanding is too narrow.

    Read my reply again and try to understand.
