50 years ago I was a welfare counselor and I tried to explain to the administration that if you give people what they need, they won't work. I was reprimanded over it. Their philosophy was that peoples pride will drive them off of welfare. My observation was that about 90% had lost their pride the day they signed up. After the first day most had no problems accepting the welfare check and benefits.
Usually the ones that left the dole were the ones that violated a welfare rule or regulation and were kicked off.
50 years later the only change I can see in welfare is that the number of recipients quadrupled . The benefits has also quadrupled.
Since I have been involved in the stock mkt as a small stock holder, this is the first time that you hear nothing from company upper mgt.
Now we know for a fact that what ever happens with OCZ the big boys will come out smelling like a rose. How? Most upper mgt are covered by contracts that must be full filled first.
If upper mgt makes a great go of the company they will smell like a bouquet. Either way they will not be hurt like the little people. MO
Poor fellow. He thought being president was to just sit in the WH and loyal party members would take care of everything for him. He had no idea what a leader/boss was supposed to do. He is a total flop. He will go down in history as the single person that destroyed America unless we the people wake up and start electing patriots to congress instead of egotists, crooks and pervers.
If you believe the political ramblings from the radical muslims that as soon as they can they will destroy Israel. Why? They believe the UN took the land that belonged to the Palestinians and gave it to Israel. They have implied once they have a bomb, poor Israel-POOF.
The 'somebody' needs to do something before the world is in a shambles. MO
My crystal ball says the patents are very valuable and a buy out before BK. The crystal ball's opinion. I hope it is correct.
My how you try to be offensive. Up until the time of Hoover almost all of the American blacks were republicans. The great depression changed most, both black and white to democrat. The hand out was born. The Great Depression really started America on its run to socialism as we have it today. FDR was the beginning of all of the welfare programs as we have today. Prior to that charity took care of poor people, like in the Bible. Each president since FDR has added to the welfare programs pushing us to socialism.
I pray hard that the voters will wake up and start trying to undo what the presidents and socialist congress have done in the past 80+ years.
When my Grandparents came to America, it was the land of opportunity. Work hard, save your money, invest and you could become rich. Not that away today.
Give credit where credit is due. Obama is a first rate campaigner and a great public speaker if he has his teleprompter.
He is not a leader. Jimmy Carter stands head and shoulders above Obama and I thought Carter was the greatest flop.
Obama and his congressional flunkies should all be run out of office immediately.
His latest boondogal is the billion dollars he wasted on the O'care computer system. Did you know that he had to borrow 400 million dollars to pay for the FLOP.
The time is here for the liberals/progressives/socialists to leave town. They are ruining America.
If the boss, Obama did not know what was going on with his 'baby', Obamacare, then he should be the first one to be fired. When I was boss I was expected to know what ever was going on with in the operation and I was expected to get it fixed.
BO the boss, I do not believe he is fully aware of anything. His greatest plus is: He is one of the best political campaigners and public speakers on record, but not a leader. MO.
I don't think pps has anything to do with a take over. If OCZ is bought it will be because it has a great value compared to the price offered. OCZ's value is only in 3 areas: 1. the company can make money. 2. the value of patents is great. 3. Company customers.
The value of these 3 areas will determine the sale price of the company if it is sold. Now upper mgt will make the final decision. If RS & his dearly believe they can salvage the company and make a lot of money it will not be sold, but if a price is offered to override this, then it will be sold. MO
OCZ closed today at the 52 wk low of $1.11/share. Wish I knew what was going on in the back room. It should be mgt's place to keep the common share holder up to date. So far, we know nothing.
You must remember BO's formative years were spent as a muslim in muslim countries, not in America. He had no opportunities to know anything about America until he was seperated from his muslim stepfathers as a teenager and shipped to his grandparents in the middle west.
Until he was 31 and married to Michelle he was a devout muslim. To make peace with Michele he decided to become a Christian and joined Bro. Wrights Church in Chicago.

This is what my brother democrats you elected believe you wanted. Nat't health care for the 30 million uninsured American plus the 20 million uninsured illegal aliens. You know someone has to pay for them. The haves have to shell out and pay for those that don't want to take care of themselves. Liberals have trained too many that wants to live off of the haves,, that is gov't welfare programs..
Remember the gov't does not have any money. Every dollar they spend must be taken from someone that has a dollar. You want socialism, socialism is what you got.
Along with the supplement, you have a deductible up front. The cheapest policy I heard for a young healthy under 27 is $47/month with a $6,000/year deductible.
With what I have now, Medicare I have a co pay for the visit. Medicare pays 80% of hosp. charges. My supplement has a hell of a deductible then there is a co pay after that. The 2 policies takes a little over 20% of my SS. And under BO's plan I understand both are going up.
BO's statements about Obamacare as far as I can see as pertains to me are all false hoods.
When it comes to religion, everyone has his own ideas of it. As long as yours does not want you to harm me, it is as good as any of the others.
Shame on you. You don't understand socialism. These people on FS are and will be considered indigent and will be required to 'have' not 'buy' health insurance. The few workers that are left will have to have their little taxed to pay for the indigent. Obama and his congressional flunkies have said over and over they will make you share your wealth. Our country is just about on its last leg.
