It's a pennywise/poundfoolish argument.
The "corporate welfare", however you're defining it, results in more tax revenue for the government. Welfare to the poor is a cash outflow for the government.
Wait, you are saying that if we give money to a corporation (or give them a tax break) that it results in getting more than that back in taxes?

If done correctly, of course.

I'm familiar with the Laffer curve, but some people seem to think it's a line.

I'm saying that if Peoria offers Megacorp $1 million in tax breaks over 10 years to lure them into town it's not really a cash outflow, since there will be zero taxes paid by Megacorp to Peoria if they don't locate there. Megacorp locates to Peoria and pays a reduced tax rate, but they are still paying taxes that Peoria wouldn't otherwise receive.

Could almost consider the woman on the far left. She'd have to lose her aversion to weight loss. But "would not" the two white chicks.

Just one of many instances of the left wing (so self designated) being a suicide cult.

A logical point (which may or may not correspond with the group in the photo above):

Acknowledging a group as hostile (or even as an enemy) does not require agreeing with all actions concerning them.
Kind of the whole point of the idea of a "war crime".

Second point: being in support of a population does not mean being in support of the official or dominant policies there.
You can hate the Palestinian leadership and still want justice for civilians.

Those Palestinian leaders have the support of 95+% of the Palestinian population. Those are the policies Palestinians support.

That sign is no less ridiculous than a "Jews for Germany" sign would be in 1943.

Yeah . . . you are stretching it there. Leave aside the "who is right" in the moral and ethical cesspool that is the region, when you back a horse you do rather take on all of its quaint sports analogies. Otherwise, you have to be specific that you oppose This Horrible Group doing This Horrible Thing to That Horrible Group. I would think one would also have the responsibility to condemn the Horrible Things the group you advocate for does as well.

I see no evidences--thanks--that that happened.
You can hate the Palestinian leadership and still want justice for civilians.
Of course, just as one can hate Israeli leadership and want justice for the Israelis. I do not see that happening in that case above.

Nevertheless, the trenchant point remains: What is the position of Palestine on homosexuals and the rest of the alphabet soup?

Being a RIVER:
Since Palestine is governed by different regional legal traditions, homosexuality is illegal in Gaza but legal in the West Bank. However, LGBT-identified individuals throughout Palestine are not legally protected from discrimination.

You will also find that there is a Wikipedia! Oh Noes! article on the subject.
