It was said by Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carole:

Scrooge is visited in his counting-house by two benefactors wishing to make provision for the poor and destitute at Christmas time. Scrooge angrily replies that prisons and workhouses are the only institutions he is willing to support and those who are badly off must go there.

Scrooge goes further with a Malthusian view that those that are poor or ill are surplus to the needs of society and if they would rather die, they’d better do it, and decrease the surplus population.

:doh

Yeah. Big fan of Charles Dickens. Not quite sure what your point is, though. That Scrooge was wrong? That's pretty much the point of the whole book.

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking that!

not sure there was a point to be made. Listening to all the incorrect news, rumors and nonsense it reminded me of earlier time when this story was popular. When in school they started teaching about leaving behind the times of famine, war and fatal illness that was no longer controlling the increasing speed that the world's population was growing. Just threw it out there to see where it went....

But, back in those days, there were actually people that were AMERICANS!! People that would help each other, watch out for each other, fix whatever, invent whatever, do whatever was done in the best interest of the country & it’s people. Now there’s just a buncha whinin, screamin, entitled, eletist, non direction taking, A$$HOLES, that won’t do nothin for anyone, if it infringes on their little bubble, cause they got their rights & they will cry & scream like little beotches if they have to do anything they don’t want to!! This country is phucked & this little bug is proving it, but they won’t learn Schitt from it! They ARE the reason they have to ORDER people to do stuff & back it up with the Guard & law enforcement, cause they’re to phucking STUPID to do ANYTHING worthwhile on their own!! How do these stupid P’sOS manage to feed themselves?? HOPEFULLY this thins some of the douch bags out!
