nope the rich didn't break it and welfare hasn't made this country great it what has destroyed it .

just how and where do you think all the wealth came from? welfare recipients?

yeah all my rich buddies are the reason why

you have a job
you can go get a loan
you can have all those cool little things that you just cant live without like the computer your using and the internet so you can hate on them.


without the rich you would be living in a cave,playing with sticks, with no food and no clothes.

or do you think everything you have comes from the welfare state?


Why are so enamored with the rich?

BTW this country was fine for decade with much higher tax rates and the same social programs in place, explain that please?

I have a job because it fills a need that the middle class wants not because of someone with money.
I can go get a loan because the middle class bailed out your rich buddies so that theres a bank to go get a loan.
and I can live without my computer just fine, id like to see how youd do without yours though when your rich buddies decide to turn off your power because they decided the rates needed to be raised.

without the rich id still be in a home because a rich man didnt build my house, a middle class man did. I wasnt given any welfare but a society is only as good as the lowest of their people. other societies understand this. welfare destroyed the country? or was the limitless spending in washington what destroyed this nation. corporate greed and stupidty and government lessening the quality of education destroyed this nation.


but at least you agree that this country is broke. at least you were smart enough to enough that part of my post.

the more you pay that always goes to the rich

a rich man didn't build your house eh? where do you think the wood and concrete and the copper used in the electrical lines or any other material that was used in the construction?

not to mention where did the cash come from so that you can even buy that home?

i guess they all just magically appeared.

And Obama is very, very good at using one syllable words taken off his teleprompter so as not to confuse his base.

And if the middle class guy is intelligent, he will continue to take loans from the rich guy, until the middle class guy is successfully rich. After which the former middle class, now rich guy will make loans to the next middle class guy working to get rich.

Beats the hell out of being on welfare.

A new conservative? A new '9/11'? There are only two parties, so this story has to recycle all over again, it already is happening with Obama and Clinton. Oh boy this is like a bad and unintelligent nightmare. But exciting! If you don't laugh you'll cry, so

In the Obama/Soros plan, the rich get richer, while the poor get poorer.


You think that is an Obama plan? You think that is something new under the Obama Administration? I got news for you. That has always been the case. Open a History book.

Yes, it sucks. I hate that these latest budget cuts will affect medicare/medicaid here in Texas. Cutting spending by 33 % when Texas is already 49th in the country for how much it spends per medicare recipient.

As usual, the poor and disabled pay first. Why? Because they don't have lobbyists to scare off the government pick pockets....

Personally, I would support a pay cut for the politicians in Washington. You think they would go for that? Hmm... Think they care more about their country or their wallet?

But yeah, I would support the US government taking a page from Lee Iacocca's play book. Don't know who he is? He single handedly brought back Chrysler from going out of business. How? He cut his paycheck to 1 dollar per year. Hey, he could afford it. All that money he cut from his paycheck went into the company and he saved it.

Now, let's see our government do that one! ( I won't hold my breathe)




No queston about it. A man would have to be pretty stupid to not make money from the presidency. Hell, Jimmy Carter improved his peanut butter stock a thousand times over.

Let's give credit to Obama where credit is due: Obama is the supreme shuckster. The Ace Snake Oil Salesman. He is all the phony wealthy televangelists rolled up into one.

One of the reasons why is because Obama and Soros looked across the political landscape and said, "There have never been this many suckers before. Look at them. Millions and millions of potential liberal welfare socialists waiting to be fleeced."

I am just proving my point and clearing up misconceptions. I make sense and it just scares you. Lets keep this civil without you insulting me. There is no need for that.
By the way I am talking about section 8 housing which is one of those "hated" social programs you wish to end.
edit on 13-4-2011 by dreamseeker because: (no reason given)


Please, if you get to the point of delusion where you think you scare me, seek therapy.

And, again...WTF does Section 8 have to do with anything I've been saying? You guys (or gals) go all over the Utopian map. :You just grabbed some personal agenda of yours, from your personal neighborhood, and threw it out there like it was relevant.

Start a new topic about Section 8 housing and we'll see how much interest that topic draws. Because it goes absolutely nowhere here.

This thread is better than cable,

Hey guys........lets look at the bigger picture here......Obama isn't in charge of sh!&, The dollar's about to tank, the stock market with it. The good ole days of the 1930's is makin a come back. Form them bread lines boys...HA HA HA.

Welfare isnt the problem, people expecting welfare for life, thats the problem. Its akin to homie G buyin new rims for his POS car thats in need of a tune up cause it keeps breakin down. Oh sure it doesnt run very well, BUT I GOTS ME SOME RIMS HOMIE.....

Americas priorities are out of wack, this next generation is dumb as rocks and allowed to have children one after the other without learning any core values like oh i dunno....responsibility? Guess what rich, poor, middle of the road....doesn't matter. The whole damned things gonna come crashin down...because this isnt politics anymore...its kindergarden and obama represents the bullies in the play ground who run the monkey bars.

We did it to ourselves this thing we live with now, funny thing is we don't have to lift a finger to destroy this country. Our elected officials will do it for us..........the fall of New Rome............funny.....its happening the same exact way orginal Rome fell.

After reading much of this thread I conclude that Mr Obama's speech today accomplished its goal of diverting attention from the real issues and reframing our nation's serious financial problems as a "rich" v "under-privelaged" format. Please people, REALIZE that this is a ploy to divert attention from the fact that the system itself needs reform. He is using our good hearts and human nature against us. Most people, I believe, really want the truly needy helped and most people are also little envious of "rich" folks.

If this guy can get us fighting between ourselves over diversions then we are not going to have the time or inclination to look squarely ate where the real problems lie. What about the Federal Reserve, what about all the fraud and redundancy in our social welfare systems, what about Wall Steet manipulations of the commodities markets, whar about corporate welfare, what about the growth of the government and intrusions into our privacy and civil liberties? The system needs reform, the abuses need to be addressed, special interest need to be disenpowered.

Reframing an arguement to suit you is a classic way of winning it. Don't take the bait. This man is a manipulative liar. He has an agenda and that agenda is not the good of America.

Though I understand your frustration, but by not par taking in the voting process, if your vote does actually count, ( which we all know its rigged anyways ) but for the sake of argument, wouldn't you want your vote to matter? Secondly, if you don't vote, then you have no grounds to complain with the end result!


If there even is an Election

Sorry,i just can´t see the US surviving much longer as it is.


Agreed....America can't survivev much longer as a Welfare Liberal Socialist movement. So, does an economic collapse act as a harbinger or a resurrection of the old values that DID make America great?

Sometimes you just got to throw a monkey wrench into the machine to get it to start working right again.


Please explain what time in history your referring too? When did America have values that are different that made America great?

Your post shows that you do not really understand the way commercial loans work,

Loans for homes comes from a capital reserve fund which is composed of patrons money in the bank or institution. Regular folks money makes for the loans you speak of... That is how a bank works.
Rich people deal in other peoples money to mitigate risk and maximize potential gains, I am studying to
be rich.

How bout you tell me where all that money came from in the first place?

Did that rich person crap it out or something?
