    Congresswoman Urges Welfare Name Change: “Transitional Living Fund”

    The Texas Congresswoman who once urged a Congressional oversight panel to study how Christian militants and other radicals might bring down the country has some new progressive ideas she’d like House members to begin implementing.

    In a brief speech on the House floor about safety nets that touches on all manner of government assistance, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee suggested that the term “welfare” is no longer politically correct, and like all masters of doublespeak, wants Congress to change its name to a “transitional living fund.”

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) hailed the war on poverty, endorsed government welfare programs, and said the “safety net has to be something for all of us.”

    “Maybe the word welfare should be changed to something of, ‘a transitional living fund.’ For that is what it is — for people to be able to live,” she said.

    She urged Congress to pass emergency unemployment insurance — “a transitional outreach to individuals who are chronically unemployed,” as she put it.

    “Quite frankly, of all the wealthy nations, we have the lowest safety net and the highest poverty, because we’re not willing to accept the fact that sometimes an American needs help. Even a veteran — even a soldier.

    Following the financial crisis of 2008 when millions lost their jobs, homes and life savings, it is certainly understandable that emergency programs were established to help people transition and get back on their feet.

    The operative term here is “transition” - a period of changing from one state or condition to another. Normally, when we think of a transition, especially as it relates to emergency funds from the government, we think short-term assistance. That could mean several months, or as is the case with unemployment benefits, 99 weeks.

    However, no matter how Ms. Lee tries to spin this, welfare is no longer a short-term program for the majority of people on it. The “transition” the Congresswoman refers to is one in which a person simply stops working and starts collecting a monthly check from the government for producing absolutely nothing in return.

    As we highlighted in a recent interview, and though it’s not necessarily descriptive of everyone who receives welfare assistance, the program itself is being abused on a massive scale. In the case of this particular caller, the “transitional living” involved going from working a job to sitting at home, smoking weed and still getting paid.

    Me and people that I know that are illegal immigrants that don’t contribute to society, we still gonna get paid.

    Our check’s gonna come in the mail every month… and it’s gonna be on time… and we get subsidized housing… we even get presents delivered for our kids on Christmas… Why should I work?

    Ya’ll get the benefit of saying “oh, look at me, I’m a better person,” but when ya’ll sit at home behind ya’lls I’m a better person… we the ones gettin’ paid!

    Sometimes our best laid plans fall apart. People hit hard times. That’s inevitable. Providing those people with transitional living assistance with food, health care or housing makes sense.

    What doesn’t make sense is the confiscation of earnings from hard working Americans to the tune of $500 billion per year only to distribute those funds to apathetic leeches who contribute absolutely nothing to society. For many on government assistance you are a joke if you struggle at a 40-hour job for a weekly paycheck.

    Transitional living? Hogwash.

    People like the esteemed Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee would like to see nothing less than cradle-to-grave long term government dependents.

            • There are 2 types of people in our society who think they are “owed” the good and services the society makes. Wellfare recipients and politicians. Both of them take freely but give NOTHING in return.

              I want the collapse to happen, so that we can remove these two types of leaches from society.

                  Political correctness crap. PCC. Just like the other abbrevations and other words to “soften” something that might be too “harsh” for people to stomach. Violin music playing.

                  This is the poison that infecting the society. It is the foundation for the destruction of the First Amendment and the rest of the Constitution because without free speech the support and being able to safeguard the other Amendments from falling apart disappear. Free speech must remain in all sections of society no matter how much a certain word or set of words “OFFENDS” those that rather have universal censorship of the state. POLICE STATE that is.

                  Just like instead of islamic terrorist, we now are suppose to say radical extremist. How about time bomb rag head.

                  Just like we are now not suppose to call queers even the word gay or homo, we have to call them LGBT or some other politically correct term. How about FAG.

                  We are “not allowed” anymore to call someone that weighs 500 pounds fat, we are suppose to call them obese, large, or overweight. How about lard bucket, walrus, or blimp ass.

                  We are “not permitted” to call someone that wants to take all of our self defense away from us anything but passionate about their views. Why not brain dead anti-gunner traitor, or ass head.

                  We cannot even call some pedophile anything but a sex offender. Why not sicko pervert, demonic dieased brained freak, or weirdo slime.

                  Welfare has other meanings in the English language, one of them is handout. So what. Some people like the elderly and those disabled need a hand out to pick them up so they don’t die of starvation or malnutrition in some hovel somewhere. It is all those that abuse the system and use this to buy more drugs, abuse their bodies, breed like rabbits, etc. is what is making this welfare state such an utter failure. OR certain worthless politicians that BUY OFF votes to be elected by using the tax payer’s money.

                  I still say we have the right to free speech in this country. If someone doesn’t like a term, live with it. There is a day and night difference between harassing someone to death and stalking them and someone that ONLY wants their opinion and views to be heard. If colorful metaphors are used to enhance this FREE SPEECH big deal. These government officials are making the masses into a bunch of wussies. I have seen people act like someone has punched them in the stomach if someone even hears the word: nigger, honky, beaner, chink, jap, faggot, dyke, bitch, dickhead, fuck wad, and too many others to mention THAT WERE NOT EVEN DIRECTED AT THEM. IT IS A FREAKEN WORD, not some noxious toxic plume of poison gas.

                  This political correctness is nothing but a lie, it is dishonest. People have the right to speak, as long as it is not an attack against a person that wants to be left in peace and left alone. If someone gets up and wants to talk about how terrible a subject is and use all the OTHER deceptions to emphasize the point they are making, walk away, turn off the TV, this is someone’s right to not listen just has much as it is the right of the person speaking to NOT BE CENSORED.

                  This is nothing but phoney garbage to try to take the sting and ugliness of something away from the attention of the audience. In reality this is nothing but sugar coating and polishing a big fat stinken smoking stench turd. It is still a turd no matter how much you try to hide it, at least be honest about it.

                  She is a perfect example of what is wrong with this country: instead of solving unemployment they’d rather redefine terms. Leech=transitional; patriotic=terrorists; vet=potential terrorists; christian=militant. How about the only thing needed to be redifined: politican=liar/scum/thief/criminal? So during the elections it should read which criminal you vote for.

                  What doesn’t make sense is those who still believe the hard earned “money” confiscated from hard working Americans pays for government handouts.

                  100% of what you “pay” in “taxes” goes to pay interest to the Federal Reserve stockholders. The programs in question are paid for with the printing press.

                  In order to kill the programs and restore this country to what it is supposed to be, the printing press must be killed. An those who profit from it.

                  Until then, if you think your taxes pay for anything the government provides you are an idiot. You are still under the corp spell and believe it exists for reasons other than it does.

                • In my state there used to be a 60 month life time limit to Welfare. And the law still states that, but the state just ignores it since 2008. No push to get them back to work but lots of info to them so they can get more free services at taxpayer expanse.
                  Did you guess I live in a Domocrat dominated state.

                  Why don’t people understand that they are putting themselves in a cage when they get onto these programs?

                  BI, there is a reason the “The right to not be offended” is not included in the Constitution. Because nobody has that right, and only the weak who deserve no rights can really be offended. A mature adult will just dismiss the offender.

                Yesterday’s report shows what the Federal Reserve is “thinking” now

                from the minutes of the December FOMC Meeting…

                “Most participants judged the marginal costs of asset purchases as unlikely to be sufficient, relative to their marginal benefits, to justify ending the purchases now or relatively soon; a few participants identified some possible costs as being more substantial, indicating that the costs could justify ending purchases now or relatively soon even if the Committee’s macroeconomic goals for the purchase program had not yet been achieved.”

                “It was noted that the risks to financial stability could be somewhat larger in the case of asset purchases than in the case of interest rate policy because purchases work in part by affecting term premiums and policymakers have less experience with term premium effects than with more conventional interest rate policy. Participants also expressed some concern that additional asset purchases increase the likelihood that the Federal Reserve might at some point suffer capital losses…”

            • What is even crazier is the robotics are replacing 30 cents an hour 3rd world-ers. They are just about to implement robotics into fast food preparations; there goes that sector. Robotics are taking over the check out stands, soon the walmart greeter will be a robot, and the police them selves are being replaced (bomb squad) just for starters. Remember Total Recall with the robotic taxis? It is coming..actually they have cars like that now. The operated a road grader in Florida from a heads up display in California and with GPS the farmers can sit in the shade and watch the tractor go in circles. Same as the open pit mining, that too will be replaced by GPS auto bots. The only jobs left in the near future is going to be robotic maintenance.

            If congress Actually put a hard timeline/work requirement on all of these loafers I would not be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pissed. But it seems that the congress believes that it is their job to STEAL my MONEY in the form of taxation, and give it to somebody else in the form of WELFARE (I don’t give a $hit what you call welfare, … it’s welfare).

            Have a great day … I need to get ready to go to work on Monday so the f’ing feds can steal from my pay.

        • If we not be in ignorance of the inside information these people are exposed to, being they know something we don’t, we are all destined for welfare. This is why they want it more PC. Remember Soviet Union where they lived in gov houses, went to gov job and got paid in gov check. They all agreed it was pretend.. They pretended to work and the gov paid them. I think we are going to fast track right past the pretend part and we will all just get paid to sit on our asses because the 3rd world and robotics are taking over anything that needs to be done.

          I’m quite sure the “racist” tag started when the good ole boys down south traded their Confederate uniforms for KKK garb.

          Some people scream reverse racism, but i think there should be another term created. “reverse, reverse, racism”

          I’m amazed that some people actually think that blacks are the one who started this race hate. If you want to say that blacks were angry for being enslaved, ok, that’s fine. But how did blacks get the bad label when it started with the slave masters????

          For some of the smart people on this forum, there are a lot of people who have selective memory when addressing the root cause of the violence that started. This is cause and effect ladies and gentlemen.

          Slave masters should not have enslaved blacks, and Blacks need to pull up their bootstraps and stop making excuses.

          The TRUTH is always in the middle, but the RACISTS ON BOTH SIDES, prefer to stick on one side or the other.

          Reverse, reverse racism is the new term today i guess…

        anyone who tells me to be careful with my comments had better just take their ass somewhere else with that crap. No PC for me and everyone here knows that. Sheila Jackson-Lee is one of the biggest crooks in the Congressional Black Criminal Caucus. And she expects people to stop calling the program welfare and start calling it a “transitional living fund”? I’ll say NEGRO PLEASE to that one. Welfare is still welfare. A freeloader is still a freeloader. A crackwhore is still a crackwhore…..well you get the idea. Some of the programs are already undergoing budget cuts. There’s already been a small increase in theft, robbery, burglary, etc. in my area. Going to a gun show this weekend to stock up on ‘food’ for Bertha and the rest of my ‘ventilation team’. Things will only get worse from here on out. The situation with the programs is unsustainable and we’re already seeing the first little bit of evidence to support my statement. the number of producers,i.e. people who still work and pay taxes into the system is still shrinking and will continue to do so until the host [producers] dies. the number of takers still goes up every month. Add to it the fact that all foreigners coming to this nation get straight onto these programs too. None of the people on these programs are supporting them. they don’t pay income tax or social security tax; just a sales tax when they buy something. When the host finally dies, there won’t be another host to replace it. The gravy train will be dead in the water and won’t operate anymore. can you say MEGA-SHTF?

Remember when they use to be food stamps, now they look so much more patriotic with an Eagle on the EBT cards. Use to be shameful to be on the dole, so good people got off of it as soon as possible. But now it’s an honorable thing to live without working, or so it seems. The Good Book says if you don’t work, you don’t eat, think we need to get back to that. Trekker Out.

            I lost 2 jobs in my life and I was raising a family at the time. I drew unemployment for about 3 weeks only the 1st. time and 4 weeks the 2nd time. I took several part time job at minimum wage both times. I picked up garbage, I flipped burgers, I remolded a couple houses, I was a janitor at a school, I drove tractors and hauled grain. I hauled and cleaned portable outhouses.
            I did landscaping, And sold all my goodies to make sure that my wife and boys had what they needed. I’m not bragging it is my duty to take care of my family not the governments.

              Northern Reb, like I said to MT earlier, when I was a kid back in the 60s, if you didn’t work, you didn’t eat. That’s just the way it was. I’ve always managed to find work. for a short time back in the 80s, I worked 2 jobs to settle a lawsuit out of court, but that’s another story for another time. I lost out to a scammer in a legal dispute and found it would’ve been much cheaper to settle out of court than to fight it, or so I was told by my attorney at the time. I found out only much later after I paid off the debt that the whole thing could’ve been avoided. Anyway, just give it time and there’s still a chance an EMP/CME or cyberattack can bring down the grid which means no more checks of any kind, no EBT, or credit/debit cards, etc. This year is going to be ‘interesting’.

        8. The govt is slowly disarming us, so we’ll never be able to stand up to this theft of our wealth and freedom.

        THE BOTTOM LINE HERE, is that it is NOT the fault of the people who are trapped in this mess, IT IS THE GOVERNMENT THAT IS DOING THIS TO US ALL.

        DIVIDED WE FALL.

      The saddest thing is that she probably believes her own hype. The amount of people on the government teat has increased significantly during this so called recovery. Candy coat it any way you like it still welfare.

      There is no safety about this net, its just a net to catch more of the populous. I read that Congress extended unemployment benefits again for at least 1.3 million.

      I have no issue with temporary help to individuals that need it but it has to be just that, temporary. A little stigma attached to the public purse strings is a good thing.

        • The reason why big cities turn into “liberal” – well it isn’t really liberal – it is just getting to blame someone else for their problems, getting to feel they deserve to be given rather than give, in short, it gets filled with people that don’t want to help themselves, and at the same time also with people who somehow and stupidly enough feel guilty for being well off and try to atone to their imaginary sins by consenting to pay to the leeches with their sweat. In doing so they force those that refuse to do so – to abide and shut up.

      Lets not confuse unemployment benefifs with free handouts. If you work, then you (and/or your employer) are paying into a fund that will be paid out to you if you become unemployed. I don’t see how anyone can get free stuff without ever working. I guess because I am not one of them. I agree that we need to help people but this system is going to crash hard if we stay on the same path.

        What the employer pays in, does not cover this program for a very long time. It was set up for a couple of months, not forever. I guess it doesn’t really matter because if they do go back to work, it will only be for 6 months. They will be back at the beginning for a new 99 weeks. We have a business and we would never hire someone that has been unemployed for more then 6 months.
        Sometimes I’m not sure how other states work but the employer pays into the unemployment fund not the employee. If you get rid of someone and they collect, the employers rates goes up. Makes you not want to hire anyone but family. The money does not come from your paycheck.

        How’s about a “hand out”. Its damn sure not a “hand up” cause you’re still without employment so your not ascending. Look here folks I’m not condemning those who have had to take unemployment and I personally know of those who try and try to find gainful employment to make it. But I got members of extended family that I know for a fact, out of their own mouths, play the game. Some are working and getting cash while still collecting. I’ve made it known to them how I feel and they don’t come around anymore which is fine by me. I got no use for sloths, of any color and wouldn’t piss on them if they were on far(fire). If my business which is doing OK at the moment, fell apart, I would gear up and go cash only on another venture and probably make a living on what skills I have. There’s some who think by my posts that I might be prejudiced. I don’t really care what you think, nor feel. I really don’t give a shit. When things fall down, ‘less your near me and I don’t know you, you are totally on your own. As far as the debate of a year’s worth of supplies is enough, I don’t know. I got enough for me and mine.

Watching the fool Dennis Rodman fly to North Korea to sip tea with the Dear Leader and bad mouth other Americans while he’s there? He’s a traitorous pig and should not have been allowed back in the U.S.

          This segment of the American population is becoming few and far between. The society is experiencing a vertical compression downward like nothing I've ever seen in my lifetime. We are seeing this massive middle class collapse accelerate, and crap has not yet hit the fan in earnest.

          Give it another 18-24 months, and when the massive bubbles in the stock and especially the bond markets implode, Americans will be begging for the 'good old days' from 2008-2009.

    39. Shes just working to insure her own nest/pen is lined…working for government is in many cases “welfare” of a sort…they take a paycheck and produce nothing(unless you count the misery they cause)…now if you work for the govt in any capacity and you are a producer of some needed goods or services then Im not talking about you so keep your undies on…Im referring to people like this congress woman in particular…

    44. When you look a the picture of the president with this moron congress woman you see the face of an imbecile that got caught in a situation he knows nada about. This destructive team of people that want to redistribute wealth doesn’t stop at anything. One aspect no one speaks about when people get “transitional” living funds for almost indefinite time is the following:

      Welfare or unemployment compensation isn’t really sufficient to satisfy a large majority of the recipients. Most people want to live better than they can on welfare – so what they do is to find all kinds of jobs that are off the record – all in cash, no official employment so they can continue to collect the government funds. This creates bigger and bigger black market economy. The trouble with black market economy is double fold:
      1. It takes jobs from eligible people that would like to do it legally and forces them into getting government support – increasing the circles of unemployment.
      2. By doing that they don’t contribute anything into the treasury or the social security funds. Therefore, the government has less revenues with which to support the leeches. So, they print more money.

      The US now has more enemies inside the country than it ever had in all its wars. These enemies are encouraged to keep on destroying the country by corrupt, reckless, hypocrite politicians.
      The issue isn’t communism, it isn’t socialism, it isn’t capitalism, it is simply an issue of honesty, integrity, loyalty to the country and your fellow citizen, people lost the sense of shame for living off the sweat of other people. The president has no shame when he exempts certain groups from the need to obey the laws that he pushes only because he doesn’t want to piss them off politically.
      I get sick even talking about it.

      I for one, am sick and tired of people saying the ballot box will fix the problem, give the ballot box a chance to work, BULL SHIT it’s broken in the politicos way (Look at who keep getting reelected over and over), and there is only one box that’s is going to fix this. You all know what box that is; THE BULLET BOX, because absolutely nothing else is going to work. The longer this fix is put off the harder it’s going to be to use it as a fix. Am I scared about the use of this box you damn right I am, but all I have to do is look at my children, grand- children, and great-grand- children to see what it is all about. We’re lucky enough to have been born in the freest, greatest nation on the face of this earth and we all have truly dropped the ball for our kindred to live free. We can sit at the keyboards, stand on the soap box’s till we are blue in the face, will it change anything NO WAY. It is time to get over our apprehensions and do what needs to be done. If it means to die to keep our freedoms and to be able to pass them on, I for one say so be. It’s time to take it to them in a way that they will truly understand; that we have had ENOUGH. May we all have the fortitude to do what is right! Let us say we fought the good fight.

      right… most of the money spent at the moment in the world is spent on military… and welfare is the problem.

      what a load of horse sht.

      what where the numbers, 1 new fighter jet = 1 new hospital = or how many people fed and housed…

      but yea, those fking poor ppl, there the problem… they all want to live like sub humans and mooch off of everyone else right? *sarcasm

      not like those banks that print money out of thin air…

      cant understand how people get there sht in a knot over poor people receiving a checks that wont even cover their bills, and start screaming about how they should get a job and work for it like everyone else… then march down to the god damn b ank and support the parasite class by paying there taxes…

      NEWS FLASH, your taxes do not DO NOT pay for ANYTHING but the interest on the debt YOU ALL OWE AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL OWE FOREVER…

      oh but where do the roads and sub standard schools come from??? your tax dollars right???

      WRONG

      the gov, borrow the money at interest… and that’s where your money goes…

      not to roads, not to schools, and certainly not to the military hardware… to the DEBT.

      you don’t pay for sht…

      they are not YOUR STREETS… YOU as a tax payer DID NOT PAY FOR THEM…

      you and every slave like you will pay for it forever…

      hell… you don’t even own your houses when your done your mortgages… miss a tax payment citizen? POOF house is gone…

      gov with their exec order can just take whatever they want whenever they want…

      but yea… those poor ppl, they sure are the problem aren’t they…

      look at them… just livin the dream… collecting there checks and living the dream…

      what a load of sht.

      sooner or later ppl are gonna have to deal with reality…

      the reality is you don’t own jack sht.
      your taxes don’t pay for anything but the debt…

      the reality is… we are all dirt poor…

      and one day… when TSHTF people are going to wake up, en mass… and realize just how into poverty they really are… that you cannot eat gold… and silver…

      and that’s the day the boot comes down… because if any of you actually think that the bunch of control freaks who run the freak show are at any point gonna just “let things go” you need your heads examined…

      and any Christian among this msg board who dares to say they follow Christ and has the audacity to sit there and bitch and moan about poor people or welfare, all ive to say to you is to re read that book… because it seems you’ve missed a few paragraphs…

      pffft… makes me so angry that its so easy to make victims turn on each other instead of going for what makes us ALLLLLLLL Victims….

        nice job! FAR too few Americans know that little tidbit! Just like too few also know that it was blacks who sold blacks into slavery to the European and American slave merchants. Literally, without all the hard work of blacks in Africa- the slave trade as we know it would never have happened. But don’t EVEN get me started on the fact that people of every single ethnicity have at one point in their history been slaves. But somehow, the only ones who keep blaming that as the cause of all their misery and failure are Black Americans. Yup. They were the only ones that suffered, and continue to suffer from the unbearable injustice (that every other race endured and then got over) of slavery.

      Thanks a lot, Mac, I just lost a mouthful of soup on my keyboard! I cannot resist from asking: transition to what? With third generation families having never worked a day and on the dole, this phrase is as much an oxymoron as calling the U.S. and Israel “democracies”.

        Sgt. Dale. You are correct as usual sir. I enjoy reading your comments. I was an officer also for over 10 years. North burbs of Chicago. I was injured in the line of duty at a burglary scene. They retired me. But I always knew God had a plan. He relocated me to the wonderful state of Texas. Hiuston to be exact. Love it here. Since being down here it was also revealed to me that I was married to a cheating nutty whore. I divorced her, and married a wonderful east Texas gal and we are happy as ever. God has a plan and he made sure that I retained sole custody of my daughters so that my ex would have little influence on their lives.
        I encourage you to consider Texas as your next residence when you finally hang up your holster. Thank you for your service and God bless you and keep you safe.

      Just when you thought you’d heard it all…they let another one rip! Idiocracy IS alive and well, apparently. This is almost as ludicrous as the time Henry C. “Hank” Johnson Jr. (a U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 4th congressional district), asked an Admiral if adding more marines to the island of Guam would ‘capsize it’. TRUE story! THESE are our elected? Elected by WHOM? Scary thought there. They have to have a combined I.Q. of maybe 50.

      During a House Armed Services Committee meeting held on 25 March 2010, Representative Hank Johnson, a Democrat from Lithonia, Georgia, questioned Admiral Robert Willard, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, about a proposal to move 8,000 Marines from the Japanese island of Okinawa to the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam. In the course of that questioning, Rep. Johnson expressed concern that adding thousands of Marines and their families to Guam might cause that small island to “tip over and capsize”:
      Johnson: This is a[n] island that at its widest level is what … twelve miles from shore to shore? And at its smallest level … uh, smallest location … it’s seven miles between one shore and the other? Is that correct?

      Willard: I don’t have the exact dimensions, but to your point, sir, I think Guam is a small island.

      Johnson: Very small island, about twenty-four miles, if I recall, long, twenty-four miles long, about seven miles wide at the least widest place on the island and about twelve miles wide on the widest part of the island, and I don’t know how many square miles that is. Do you happen to know?

      Willard: I don’t have that figure with me, sir, I can certainly supply it to you if you like.

      Johnson: Yeah, my fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.

      Willard: We don’t anticipate that … the Guam population I think currently about 175,000 and again with 8,000 Marines and their families it’s an addition of about 25,000 more into the population.

      Johnson: And also things like the environment, the sensitive areas of the environment, coral reefs and those kinds of things, and I know that lots of people don’t like to think about that but … you know, we don’t think about global warming either, and now we do have to think about it, and so I’m concerned from an environmental standpoint whether or not Guam is the best place to do this relocation. but it’s actually the only place, is that correct?

      Willard: This is the best place, this is the farthest west U.S. territory that we own and this is part of our nation, and in readdressing the forward presence and posture importance to Pacific Command, Guam is vital to this decision.

      What if this nation’s productive people stopped producing for general consumption and decided to take care of their own families and the “local folk?’

      Where is the food, clean water, petroleum, minerals, medical care and a plethora of valuable services going to come from?

      The government has no infrastructure from which to supply those wants. Except by coercion and theft. Needless to say, to much lower quality and less availability.

      I feel blessed that I am a retired puke. Because if I were a small business owner, farmer, independent physician, skilled tradesman etc. I could conceivably decide,

      “F it … I am not going to participate in this economy in any way that allows the parasites to get the better of me, while it allows an out of control government to hem me in further while it loots me.”

      Deep respect for you who work hard every day being the productive people.

      Have you given a thought about chucking it all and letting a slothful, parasitical greater society seek its own level … without you to loot anymore?

      I haven’t read it in decades but I think a woman named Ayn Rand wrote a novel along these lines.

        My favorites…..
        “When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion — when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing — when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors — when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you — when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may know that your society is doomed.” Ayn Rand

        We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force. Ayn Rand

      I don’t like the name-calling in some of the posts nor trying to make it a race issue. So please don’t read this post that way.
      However, this is intolerable socially, culturally, and economically. I assure you it will not last much longer. The well is absolutely dry. The debt at the local, state, and federal level is mathematically unsustainable.
      The gigantic “social safety net” is only maintained by forced income distribution. However,the amount required to maintain all the variety of welfare benefits is greatly increasing at a rate faster than the supply of taxed income or money borrowed to feed that system. When the various levels of government cannot maintain the present staus quo. Government will resort to repressive tyranny to get what they need. That will work only briefly. The laws of economics is just as real and powerful as the laws of physics. Not only will this situation not last, it cannot last and not much longer.
      The only question is what happens when it fails as it is destined to do. The first problem is that the vast majority of people supported by these social programs have no skills to support themselves or to contribute productively to society. Secondly, they have been inculcated with a sense of entitlement. They will quickly become desperate and resort to intense violence and criminal activity. And I can tell you that will not last for long either. You can speculate why.
      I work hard and productively but do not work overtime. My time is more precious, besides the more I earn the more is taken from me in income taxes. My income is very good however I do not buy many things I do not need. The less I spend the more I save and the less I pay in sales taxes, prepared meal taxes, gas taxes, tolls, fees, etc. I do not feed the system where I can avoid it. Buy only those items you need, or retain value (land, precious metals, etc.) or bring you enjoyment, and contribute to charity for more tax breaks.

      this is a HUGE important message here so read it people!

      when it comes to this topic of conversation it is very frustrating for me because people don’t understand that there is a system that surrounds us all now that is NOT supposed to be here, and should NOT be allowed to replace OLD fashion methods and life.. and this where the argument begins.. some idiots think that the life within the system can go on .. but it can’t.. so let’s understand that and go from there..

      now.. when someone is getting a welfare check, sometimes they are doing things on the side to make more money illegally or whatever and that is one thing.. but there are many that just don’t want to play the game of life, which is a social ladder of silly assets and crap to say the least, there are still essentials in life, and some people just want those and nothing extra.. and those essentials were at one time abundant resources, and because of the system have no become a product that must be ‘worked’ for.. instead of being able to sleep on a rock all day and pick fruit for free, we are all enslaved by a system of giving to get something back, and idiots out there think that this is the way it is supposed to be.. and that is the problem.. there are IDIOTS IN THIS WORLD THAT FORGET THAT THIS SYSTEM IS NOT SUSTAINABLE.. THE INDUSTRIAL PATH IS NOT SUSTAINABLE! MUST RETURN TO NATURE, OR FOCUS ALL ATTENTION ON COLONIZING MARS IF THERE IS A WAY TO GET THROUGH THE VAN ALLEN BELTS THAT IS … SOMEHOW..
