The "since 2008.." comment, last paragraph, have any data to support that? I am truly curious since 95% of facts and figures are randomly made up 60% of the time.
In fact, I would tend to say that most of your assertions are anecdotal at best.
So exactly where was I deceptive? Where did I post non-truths?

Cloward and Piven.
The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty".
There would also be side consequences of this strategy, according to Cloward and Piven. These would include: easing the plight of the poor in the short-term (through their participation in the welfare system); shoring up support for the national Democratic Party-then splintered by pluralistic interests (through its cultivation of poor and minority constituencies by implementing a national "solution" to poverty); and relieving local governments of the financially and politically onerous burdens of public welfare (through a national "solution" to poverty)
let me explain it to you.
a "wall of text" is usually unbroken, just one big paragraph. while i dont capitalize (a form of informal internet speech, much like formal and informal spoken language), i do separate paragraphs, thus preventing a wall of text.
