The following comment was made in reference to a program that feeds poor children:
“My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed,” Bauer said, according to the Greenville News. “You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.”
At a town hall meeting Thursday in northwestern South Carolina, Bauer noted his grandmother “told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed.”
The Republican lt. governor did not specify if he included Social Security, Medicare, veterans benefits, car company and Wall Street bailouts in the category of government assistance that he disdains.
“The problem is, there are so many folks now who don’t have to do a thing. In government, we continue to reward bad behavior. Anytime we give somebody money, we’re rewarding them. We’re telling them to keep doing what they’re doing. Government’s got to change,” he said. “Babies having babies, somebody’s got to talk about. … Education can not really be improved until we address the real problem.”
To fix that, he said, “If you receive goods or services from the government, you owe something back.”
The real reason I bring this up, a Political commentator this morning made the statement that they have yet to figure out whether this will be good for his campaign or bad for it?
REALLY? You have to take the time to figure out if such a statement and comparison is good or bad for the campaign?
Maybe then there is no debate left to be had, this is one screwed up world!
