When I took my current state position the adverstised pay rate was $25,600 per year. At that income I would have qualified for $650 per month in foodstamps. ($7800 annual).

Now, when I interviewed, it went well and they offered me $27,900 (about a 10% raise), but it disqualified me from the foodstamps! I wasn't aware of all the details ahead of time, but my 10% raise cost me about $5000 a year in Net Income!!

Florida was in a budget crunch prior to the legislative session this year. I offered to give up my raise
but they wouldn't let me!

Crazy, they give you a pay raise just so you couldn't claim public assistance, and in the end it put you at a 5000 dollar net loss. That left you with a little less than 21 grand a year that is crazy.

It's had to survive on that little bit of cash when food prices keep rising and so does gas. If they increase taxes and people can't eat, people are going to get violent like hungry people do.

Or maybe it is because people are seeing all their money being stolen by the bankers and being enabled by the government and they have gone an outrageous spending spree now they want to pay for it by taxes us to death, when very few people wanted them to spend all this much cash in the first place.

It has nothing to do with Obama it has everything to do with them going against the peoples will and spending out of control and then raising our taxes to pay for it all when we didn't want it in the first place.

thanks, from your local libertarian.

Fair Enough...

I do not challenge your past emotions about the government...

I just think people are louder now because of Obama (i do think is a race thing).. I just wish you were as loud as you are now during the Bush administration..

Whether you are pro-Obama or anti-Obama does not matter, the current situation stands on its own merits. Bush/Obama/Clinton/Congress created this mess!

Race is at the far bottom of the concern of most Americans at this point!

How can people still be claiming it is a race thing?? It may be for a select few, but the vocalization is not related to race!! We are in the midst of an historical recession/depression, wars on several fronts, free press is dead, an upcoming vote on healtcare stands to be groundbreaking, the iconic auto industry is dead or nationalized, banks are failing daily, education is faultering, immigration is out of control, individual and state rights have been seized, so on, and so on!

The world events at this point of our history speak for themselves, it would not matter if Teddy Roosevelt were resurrected to run the country, the vocalization from either side would be just as severe in this climate!!
