It's all too easy to put out a video of an ignorant black woman with 15 kids, and make her the poster child of public assistance. But that's like saying that some Ku Klux Klan skinhead is the spokesperson for all sensible gun-owners in America.
Usually when I get into a discussion about public assistance programs, the argument goes something like this.
Opponent: People on welfare just need to get a job.
Six: There are no jobs for 3 out of 4 Americans who apply. (Nevermind the millions who are not counted as unemployed because their insurance has expired.)
Opponent: So then they need to go back to school.
Six: Why? So we can have better educated people on food-stamps?
