You might have some Communist DNA in you. Take that up with your parents. But you'll find 24 carat diamonds in my bloodstream before you find any Communism.


All class eh???

I can picture you sat in front of your PC wearing your camo and a bullet belt round your waist...

Was just wondering...if your other property is 6 hours by plane, how will you get there(Mr. self reliant, who needs nothing or nobody) when everything falls over as you predict??

Or do you own a plane too(probably a fighter jet too, haha..)??

You seem very full of yourself, making a lot of noise, but little else dude...

Empty vessels anybody??


It's nice to know that I am being 'pictured' by someone.

Without welfare crime would be crazy high.
I know many hard workers that have been out of work for 2 or more years. Good people that worked for decades have families and paid taxes....most have lost their homes can't get more than part time employment. Living off meager food stamps.
You want to know how I know these people? My husband is an attorney that helps them keep and get back their homes. Fighting banks and court systems rigged against anyone that makes less than 50k a year.

The problem with this society, isn't in so much the "GOV". It is the lack of perspective and empathy from humankind. So many just think everyone is a welch and a loser or a druggie. That is the propaganda of the politicians at work. You are blinded by your jealousy and your fear of not having your needs meet. Fear that someone may have more than you.
Obviously for a lot life is great and dandy...well your life is not everyone else's life. Get some perspective outside your own little perfect world and learn to be generous, kind and empathetic. Stop behaving like a society of psychopaths!


This is to all the welfare fear mongers by the way...lol

Good examples of civilizations without welfare down through history.
French revolution.
Slave revolts in Rome and Greece.
Russian revolution.
And on and on.
If a high tax rate scares the bejeezus out of ya, how about mob rule?

Just a thought.

Do you ever think the Democrat voters will one day up and revolt against their Democrat masters? Naw. Probably not. They're too trained.

Did you actually say that the crime rates are low in neighborhoods populated by welfare recipients? That was hysterical. I needed that laugh. Thank you.

I find it interesting that we focus so strongly on Letitia, the leacherous welfare baby machine and never once focus on General Electric, or Lehman Brothers.

What we 'give' to Letitia is a penny on the sidewalk compared to what multinational corporations get in tax breaks and subsidies, not to mention the stranglehold said power companies have on innovation and real solutions.

It's like giving a ticket to a guy on a moped for speeding while a hundred Porsche's fly by.

The shell game isn't about money, ladies and gentleman. It's about this back and forth friction. This very thread. Complete confrontation amongst two manufactured, rival parties for the entertainment and profit of a third party.

Do you really think these people don't argue during the day and share Macanudos at night?

Beats working, I guess.

So, in a round-about way you are agreeing with Obama when he said that welfare makes America great. Why don't you just come right out and say it: You think welfare is what has made America that greatest nation on this planet. Welfare is what defeated Hitler and the Japanese after they attacked Pearl Harbor. Welfare is what put Neil Armstrong on the moon. Just say it: You think welfare has made America totally great!!

Is Letitia going to give you a good paying job? And who is Letitia, this person who gives people great careers?

good point! Yes, since the military is completely subsidized with taxpayer dollars and basically everyone had to enlist in WW2

Another great point! Without the 'socialist' system of the government funding NASA, we would have never made it to the moon!

I'll come out and say it...I already did once...and I'll do it again.

Our social programs are ONE of the things that make this country great.


It's not about handouts or entitlements...it's about compassion and making sure your fellow countrymen are taken care of.


Do you not care about your fellow Americans???

No...I'm being truthful...the OP is trying to spin what Obama said to serve his, and the Republicans, agenda.


If something I posted was BS...please point it out.

How did you draw that conclusion?

It seems pretty clear to me that he is saying without social infrastructure, the unwashed masses would be beating down the gilded gates of the wealthy demanding justice.

Did giving huge loopholes, tax breaks and freebies to greedy special interests make more jobs? And if you hadn't cut education spending in Letitia's school zone AFTER mandating useless standarized tests, she may have been an employer to be reckoned with.

Well, if a mob is breaking into your house, you've got more problems than simple welfare. You live in the wrong neighborhood.

So, you're saying this Letitia is the Czar of school zones? I must've missed something that has been talked about frequently on MSNBC...or CNN.

And does tax breaks to corporations create more jobs in America? That was a rhetorical question. Of course it does. Which is why Ford and Government Motors have moved their operations to Mexico....even after Obama bailed Government Motors out to the tune of seven or eight hundred billion.
