    Politics Done Right - Is welfare for the rich the same as welfare for the poor?

    in Politics

    Today I will be exploring whether welfare for the rich has the same implications as welfare for the poor. Last night Bill Maher said the following.


    "Republicans are right," Bill Maher said "Not having to work and getting free money does mess people up. That's why they love to talk about work, the virtue of work, the right to work, workfare, the dignity that comes with work.


    In fact there is only one thing conservatives believe in more than work. And that is the God given right of rich people to leave all their money to their kids so they never have to work a day in their lives. ...


    I mean think about it. Republicans are on board with taxing people's income, their investments, property, food, gas, booze, cigarettes, everything you buy, even your retirement. Those are all OK. But the one thing that must remain tax free is when money falls from the sky and lands in the lap of [explicative] Hilton. ...


    If the tough love of cutting off free money for the poor is the right thing to do how can we stand by and do any less for the Conrad Hiltons of the world. They've never known the dignity of work either. Shouldn't we be helping them by taxing inheritance at one hundred percent?"

    God's Heart - His Compassion for the Poor

    in Christianity

    What does God think about compassion for the poor? God highlighted this subject to me today. He is for the distressed and downtrodden. He wants us to know about this, because He wants all people to be blessed by His ways. We will bless others but also be blessed ourselves. God's ways are so good! 


    We'll welcome Holly again as co-host for this episode. Thank you Holly -- some of the scriptures we'll look at come from her study. When I saw them, I was surprised that God had more to say than I had really seen clearly. It is sure different when you look at all the scriptures together.  What a good picture of God's heart and what our hearts should be -- like His -- toward the poor.


    We hope you can be with us live, but if not, we pray it blesses you whenever you can listen in. As always, call in if you need prayer or have an encouraging word!

    FACING the Poor

    in Lifestyle

    This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie addresses the troubling and ongoing challenge of poverty in America. Though the media and our national conversation regularly neglects the harsh realities of our nation’s poor, poverty remains a critical issue affecting an alarming number of families and individuals. So here, in 2014, who are these individuals? What do they look like and how old are they? And, most importantly, are we ready to face the issue? 


    Joining us to address some of these challenging questions is Peter Edelman, Professor of Law at Georgetown Law Center and Faculty Co-Director of the Georgetown Center on Poverty, Inequality and Public Policy; Angela Glover Blackwell, CEO of PolicyLink, a research and action institute advancing economic and social equity; and Eric Hauser, President of The Hauser Group, an organization committed to the public interest. Together we will take a close look at this serious issue, its current state and its impact while discussing ways of tackling the problem. 


    It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
