Do Safety Nets encourage Risky Behavior?

Recommended Posts

Do Safety Nets encourage Risky Behavior?

Lots of people like the idea of Safety Nets and Second Chances, but these are only supported by the Bible on a limited bases.

The woman taken in adultery is an example of a second chance, but Jesus says to the woman, go and sin no more. This was definitely a limited second chance, since there is no discussion of what would have happened if the woman had not complied.

The Bible also talks about forgiving a brother seven times seventy but then that is only one Christian forgiving another Christian, and has nothing to do with Atheists, that are involved in sin.

I believe Safety Nets do encourage Risky Behavior and that is why I do not like the Safety Net of the health care and welfare of Socialism.

Better to tell people no safety net and then help them as Personal Charity than to offer Socialism and encourage Risky Behavior like homosexuality, adultery and drugs.

All too often the second chance of Socialism becomes a habitual situation or a dependency.

With Personal Charity a personal evaluation can be made to prevent habitual situations and dependencies.

America must stop the Socialism that is creating dependencies and encouraging risky behavior.

One thing about the safety net. is it does encourage risk taking. you take a risk in opening a business and if you fail you have something to fall back on.

So if the FED contracts the money supply and someone goes bankrupt, he or she should not be encouraged to start another business after surviving from the safety-net programs that are in place to protect from evil central banker behavior ?

What would that be?

 

There is no built in safety net if you fail in business. Unless you have a lot of money.

Big banks and Wall Street NEVER should have gotten bailouts!

 

It encourages the risky behavior which caused the collapse of 2008.

 

Its called MORAL HAZARD.

I think depression from having to live under safety nets causes many problems for people

 

I am not happy being unemployed and living off of a third of the income I am used to. I am smoking less and drinking cheap beer. Marijuana has not been in the budget and obviously I can't get a job if I piss dirty so I have been abstaining ( with the exception of two very satisfying slip ups!!)

 

But I have seen people that ignore their problems and continue to drink and buy lottery tickets with their unemployment money. For some it takes hitting rock bottom before they dig out... a lot of people never do dig out... I know a guy who killed himself recently and know more that I worry about than I care to count

 

Some conservative states have an interesting tactic to homelessness...

 

It costs 213K to f with a homeless person and 20K to help them out of the hole...

www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/the-answer-to-homelessness/

 

Utah is the fourth most conservative state in the union, according to a January Gallup survey. Only 15 percent of residents identify as “liberal.” Yet the Beehive State is on the cusp of ending chronic homelessness using a new method that would appear to come straight from the Nancy Pelosi playbook—by giving away housing.

In 2005, the Republican administration of Gov. Jon Huntsman introduced a “centrally led and locally developed” strategy to defeat long-term homelessness. Called Housing Works, the program began with 17 people who had lived on the streets at least once in the previous year. The goal was to lead them to self-sufficiency, but they kept the housing even if they failed to pull their lives together.

That thing of giving away housing was tried in the form of housing project for the poor.

 

That created nothing but a crime ghetto that was proven to be a massive mistake by Democrats.

 

People must be warned to avoid the problems by not starting.

 

There have been enough failed attempts to lead people to self-sufficiency that have failed it is really foolish even to think one can be found.

 

Most people have to hit rock bottom and then they sink or swim.

 

The only program that I know the really works with addictions is Alcoholics Anonymous where you have to admit you have the problem and admit you are the only one that can solve the problem.

What would that be?

Amen, Amen and AAAmen.

 

Moral Hazard is a problem for individual, businesses and governments.

The FED should have a policy and people should plan around the known policy.

 

A FED that does not a stated policy is evil and should be replaced.

 

God tells people what is evil but a lot of people ignore God, so their problem is their own fault.

U r a fool.

Thank you for your opinion.

 

Tell me more about Christ forgiving everyone everyday.

 

There are a lot of people that have committed murder that want Christ to forgive them do they can do more murder.

Too bad. The lesson is don't risk money you can't afford to lose. It's not right that after bad use of your own money, you then get the government to take money from someone else to support you. That's government sanctioned theft. And that's all Social Security is at this point. A Ponzi scheme where Peter is robbed to pay Paul. There is no trust fund. Every dollar paid out by SS comes from taxing someone else. See that's the problem with government run safety nets like SS. They are inefficient, wasteful, and sold to the public as something they are not. Sold with lies. And besides, you'd be far better off financially at retirement age if you'd been allowed or even forced to take the money you paid into SS and put it in an account owned by you that was actually invested in the very safe items. So that you actually did have a *trust fund*. Some REAL assets in your name. I've proven this repeatedly. You'd get many times what you may (if you're lucky) get back from SS. You really need to wake up Tommy and either stop being deceived by the lies and promises of socialists/communists/progressives/Democrats or stop trying to deceive people yourself.

And what was your response when Bush tried to do that with SS? Support more Democrats who wouldn't let him? :rolleyes:

Yes both Republicans and Democrats have tried Safety Nets buy votes, but only the Democrats have been successful.

 

I do not favor shutting down safety nets tomorrow, because people have based there lives on Safety Nets, but I would phase the Safety Nets out by not accepting any new people.

 

SS is a ponzi scheme, but if run as scheme where only those that pay in are allowed to get money out, then it is can be Old Age Insurance. The problem is when government uses the SS money for things like Medicaid which again rewards people for bad decisions.

If you want business ideas, I have more than a few that are moneymakers!

 

I am 68, have health problems galore, but I have 3 ground floor opportunities at this moment that are sure fire success. I just need some seed capital to get going. I cant live on $ 890/mo. with SS. PM me if you like.

 

5 X 5, your a good guy. Just take any kind of crap job for now, and something better will come along.

I am pleased to continue rendering my facts in the face of your diminished understanding.

 

what exactly does your love for your transient shell have to do with the forgiveness offered by Christ daily? It is your self love that causes you to twist scripture and pervert it I to something ugly. Oh yes, also recall Christ exorted His followers to resist not the evil person. Oooops!!! Any idea why, pretender? Be ause he who loves his life will lose it. You love your shell moren than you love God. You are afraid. Your God concept is weak, your fear is great BECAUSE you have no real faith in God.

the end game, is ascending to heaven. When we love THIS life here on earth, we often lose sight of our ultimate destination.Jesus said he who loves his live will lose it; they will be perpetually distanced from God and not have eternal life, because their body and ego became their god.

 

ppl like cl!tus are legalists; they tend to play God, because they lack FAITH in God, and are distanced from the essence of God. So the only tning that separates ppl like cl! Tus from everyone else, is a pretense. He is just like the ppl he attacks, which is why he must attack them. Its like a person who cannot play a guitar because they are tone deaf berating others who dont want to play the guitar

Cl1rus, are you a recovering juicer?

 

AA has helped many, but only if they believe in the higher power, God.

 

I have dealt with many juicers and dopers in my life, and the ones who hit bottom, were the ones who had no belief in God.

 

They were so weak, internally, they could not recover.

 

Maybe you drank too much, and damaged your brain. Pity!

What do you think that means, Tommy?

 

You are just babbling.

 

and go thing he didn't do it because the stock market crashed.

I've explained how to avoid the negative effects of downturns in the examples I've offered on SS.

 

As you approach retirement, you don't have all your funds in the market.

 

The example I offered would allow for a 10 year downturn without losing a dime.

 

Which means that by now the portion still in stocks would be worth far more than in 2008 and you'd be sitting pretty.

 

But you're either too stupid to understand that, or too dishonestly partisan to admit it.

Now that was judgmental to presume I drink.

 

However, I agree that God has to be a part of the recovery process for anyone with addiction problems.

 

Physical help never works until there has been a change in the heart.
