Grove, Blackadder and Comedy and Satire in the Great War | welfare cuts | Scoop.it
The idea that we were brought up on, that Europe is the home of civilization in general – nonsense! It’s a periodical slaughter-pen, with all the vices this implies. I’d as lief live in the Chicago stockyards.

Sfitzg35's comment, March 6, 9:35 AM
I think this is a great idea because it will open up more opportunities for disabled people to buy and live in a house that is fit for their needs and style. I believe that everyone should be able to live in a house where they feel comfortable and don't have to worry about how to access things around the house.
cander05's comment, March 9, 12:41 AM
This would be a great idea, as it would provide everybody with the opportunity to own and feel comfortable in their own house.
Wyatt Nelson's comment, March 9, 12:53 AM
This is a good idea because disabled people can have hard times doing things in their house.
