Is Generation Y the 'welfare generation?' If yes, are 'they' making it so?

In December of 2011 nearly 47 million individuals received electronic benefits (Food Stamps) from the federal government this according to Patrick Markee, an advocacy director for The Coalition for the Homeless. Markee states that 35% of children in elementary school receive food stamps at home. Not to mention the whopping 62% of children who receive free or discounted lunch at school according to data from the Action for Children foundation.

The banksters have made it so.

They have systematically raped our economy until there just isn't much left for average folks.

What I am trying to say, for us here at ATS -

Since I obviously can't write about it in the article openly

Are TPTB making it this way? Would the "NWO" be easier to implement if the majority of people were stuck on her teat to survive?

reply to post by pirhanna

These figures of every $1 from aide = $1.60 for the economy - it doesn't make sense to me.

Supposedly, those in favor argue, that aide helps the economy with that $1/$1.60 analogy but it's just hard for me to understand that statistic.

Just you pihranna, eh? Well, I'm a "Gen Y" 80s babies and I can attest that a lot of my friends, even college educated, are receiving government assistance somehow be it LIHEAP, Food Stamps, Pregnancy Medicaid - the list goes on and on.

I thought this was an interesting subject and could be 'proof' of the NWO slowly making us slaves to the State.

Will try again later if no one perks up

Remember way back when when you could:

1. Say what you thought? PC was unheard of;
2. Raise your family as you saw fit which on occasion meant a pop or two for tantrums and therefore good kids;
3. Not have insurance, just go see the doctor when needed;
4. Vets weren't expensive;
5. Have a disagreement and not have to "get in touch" with inner child feelings;
6. Be an individual not a "team player";
7. Feel free to fill in the rest, it goes on and on.

I believe the the Y Generation is going to be the norm in 20 years. The govt. will own all businesses, direct all interactions between everyone with guidelines and a heavy hand for "individuals". Everyone will be doled out money or credits each month and we will all live according to the requirements for the amount we receive. No one will do without and many will take advantage of it. It seems like a crazy idea now, but from what I have seen in my years is that crazy now, the norm later. Guess it was the plan from I would guess the 60's on, it started with Madelaine Murray O'Hare taking prayer out of the schools and snowballed from there.........

God Help Us All,

We Humans have evolved way past natural selection. Now even undesired genes can live without worries. "May the best genes win" does not mean anything now in the socialist human populations.

We are above that now.

Now that we are above that now .... What is the speculation of the future of the human species?

With one human being just as important as any other human in terms of reimbursement of tools for reproduction..

I see interesting times in the future.

First of all, welfare and food stamps are not the same thing. Hard to take seriously anyone who doesn't understand the distinction.

And second, the economoc plight of eash generation is a direct consequence of the actions of the prior generations.

If this generations is the wlfare generation, we can thank the baby boomers for that.

Same old story different year

What the voices say is not necessarily what the generation believes, and what it believes is not necessarily what it will act on. Its motives and desires are often hidden. It is a medley of good and evil, promise and threat, hope and despair. Like a straggling army, it has no clear beginning or end. And yet each generation has some features that are more significant than others; each has a quality as distinctive as...
