Druggies trade their food stamps fir drugs, F.L.... Or if you provide them housin' will figure out how to trade it for drugs... 'Er bus tokens, or.......

Nah, we have to get beyond this master/slave mentality where rich folks think that poor folks are stupid. They aren't. They are quite inventive and creative to be able to live with virtually nuthin'...

No, we have to have educational and vocational programs to go along with a guarenteed national income and push toward franchising folks and *habilitatin'* where is is needed and *rehabilitatin* where that isx needed. We need a big ol' Job Corps, similar to the W.P.A. and get our intastructual deficiencies taken care of. This will porived a snse of worth for the folks who participate. That sanse of worth is the one thing that the current system does not address. Far worse, it works against a sense of worth. And we wonder why inner city kids don't give a darn about their lives or the lives of others...
