Question 2

Do you believe anyone can become rich and famous if they apply themselves?

Yes. America is the land of opportunity!

Who would want to become rich and famous?

Question 3

Do you think what people buy with food stamps should be regulated by the government?

Definitely! If you couldn't afford a steak before why make the government pay for it?

Why don't we just feed them MREs I hear the military loves them!

No. You can't offer help to the less needy then get mad when you don't like the way they use it.

Question 4

You see a poor person begging for money. What goes through your head?

Why would I give you money. You'll just use it on drugs.

I might give you money, but I don't want you to receive too many hand outs. The world is tough man. Get a job!

If I give you money, I won't think twice on how you'll use it. I am here to help, not judge.

Question 5

You read about the huge gap between the rich and poor. What goes through your head?

Oh come on! Everybody stop whining! If you wanted to be rich you should have just applied yourselves.

I consider myself middle class, so I don't really care too much.

That doesn't sound good. What can we do to fix this?

Question 6

About 80% of homeless youth (aged 12-21) use drugs or alcohol as a means to self-medicate to deal with the traumatic experiences. What do you think?

If the youths would just stop drinking maybe they could get off the streets.

There you go! They are homeless because they are drunks. RAISE THE DRINKING AGE!

Let's work together to help these troubled teens and make a better tomorrow.
