I am a very nice person that does a lot for all those around me. I am not however very sympathetic regarding Welfare. If I were King there would be a bright yellow bus at each and every able bodied welfare recipients home at 5:30am five days a week. I WOULD find some trash for them to pick up, brush to clear, and if not able bodied? some damn stamps or envelopes to lick.

Food stamps and welfare without work? NOT A CHANCE! There is something you would be doing for that money, were I King......
There are some states that actually do that. I know that the state of Ohio had a work for food stamp program back in 1990. The reason I knew that, is that I had a cousin that was on the work for food stamp program.

I know I sound ruthless, but you folks are not hearing what I am really saying.

I am all for helping people that need help. That is our responsibility as humans. It is NOT however my responsibility to feed or clothe lazy good for nothing losers. Go to the welfare office sometime and look around. There are TONS of people there that could be doing something to EARN that welfare money.

As King I would give those that need a handout, a job. It would be menial, tedious and do little more than create a good work ethic and a strong desire to get the heck off welfare.

I would help those that are injured and those that are mentally completely incapable of taking care of themselves.

As King I would also make darn sure stupid people, people on welfare and the flat out insane people (think Octo-mom) did not breed. I could start an entire thread on how to fix the world, If I were King.............

I dont think my EBT use takes food away from anyone. There is a budget for this, just like there is a budget for everything else.
I also work and pay taxes, the budget for SNAPS is a drop in the bucket compared to the Pentagons budget (600 BILLION)

And as "King", how would you magically create millions of jobs out of thin air? America has spent the last thirty years dismantling its industrial and agricultural base just as we have in the UK, preferring to operate as a "service" and "entertainment" nation and importing everything vital for survival from everyone else.

It's great imagining a utopia where everyone can work for a living and only those physically incapable of caring for themselves can claim assistance, but when there are no jobs for those people to do, what is your answer?

Like I said, you can't just do this on paper, move people from column A to column B, you have to have space in column B to start with.

There is an ATS thread about people not being able to get their money out of Banks in Scotland. This may be the beginning of a cyber-attack on the internet.


No. Just.. No.

5 minutes in any search engine would have told you that RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) and their parent company NatWest suffered a computer glitch which made account balances unavailable. This lead to a disabling of the transaction subsystem, meaning the bank wouldnt accept deposits, or make payments until it was fixed.

The glitch was compounded by the fact that they had laid off all 1800 of their in-house IT support workers, in favour of cheaper 800 offshore workers, because their systems never had a problem, there was no need for 1800 workers... Well DUH! Maybe their systems never had a problem because the 1800 workers kept stuff fixed before it became a problem...

The glitch is now fixed, after lasting for 4 days, and they are in the process of clearing the backlog of transactions. Its nothing to do with a "cyber-attack on the internet".

But don't let facts get in the way of a good conspiracy

I find that funny. That is like taking the spare tire out of the car because you have never had a flat tire.
