Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

It’s been seven years today since the worst day of my life. We lit a yorzeit - literally “year time” but really annual memorial - candle last night. They burn about a day. Supermarkets serving areas where anyone Jewish lives typically have them. There is no blessing. 

Precisely three weeks before J died, he was in a…

An answer to those saying we should get rid of welfare

Posted on January 7, 2019 at 11:05pm 11 Comments

This was an answer to an anti-welfare post on another site which I wrote a day or two ago. Slightly edited for context. 

I think to a certain extent the case against welfare is a bit simplistic. If the question is: “Welfare: yes or no” I think the question can be answered by what a debater would call a “negative repairs” case, in this case meaning that refining the welfare system makes more sense than trashing it, and trashing it could have a lot of expensive…
