Put down the manifesto and pick up " The Road to Serfdom" by Friedrich Hayek. You will see by chapter 3 how the obammanites are willfully destroying businesses by interference [and killing the jobs provided] . This creates the chasm between rich and poor, creating a need for bigger government. The field of freaks, of which you are one, are the sheeple who trade their votes for gee-gaws promised by big government democrats. The government gets bigger, the citizen smaller, and our God given freedoms are lost, never to return. Note: If Marxists such as yourself understood economics, they wouldn't be Marxists.
Sorry to hear about your accident; although riding a bicycle on a dirt road while intoxicated might have been fun at the time it is dangerous. While you are in the hospital, see if they have an in-patient alchohol treatment program, or some sort of detox regimen that might wean you off the Ol Rotgut [Still only $3.99 Qt....It might not sharpen your mental capacity but it could help you with your grammar and spelling.
"we either become a third world country" Been to Detroit lately? Camden NJ? A fair wage is one where a person will furnish labor in exchange for what the employer is willing to pay. Sadly, the employer is in competition with the local government policies that pay people to NOT to work. This creates an artificial high wage, forcing the employer to raise prices to a point where it is senseless to stay open. The working poor? These are the ones working under the table for cash while collecting the generous benefits fron the state. What collapsed Camden, and will eventually collapse the USA is the system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing. This causes the folks least predisposed to succeed - or even sustain themselves- to be rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. The end goal? A nation of serfs where everyone is equal...Equally poor and equally dependent on Big Government.
Herman Cain couldn't be half the sexual predator that Bill Clinton was, and did not leave dead bodies in his wake. As for Palin, I would sooner have her than the Kenyon Impersonator; one who has done more to undermine the basic freedoms granted by God and our forefathers. A soulless twerp, bent on shrinking the economy, destroying jobs, and causing a rift between the people who create jobs and the spoon-fed drones who will spend their entire lives living off the labors of his honest neighbor. I can think of no more racist act than telling generation after generation of a type of people that they cannot survive by themselves without the flowing tit of government largess. Treating a portion of the populace like a housepet, feeding it regularly, keeping those people dependent only for their vote is the most hideous form of racism.
True, his heart is in the right place, but the rest of him is usually in a separate state; the state of inebriation. Guzzling rotgut while watching The View, he picks a topic which infuriates him, taking to this board [and others] with the fury of the righteous, plaguing said boards with poor spelling, atrocious grammar, and a point of view beyond the comprehension of the literate. He WILL be back, though, after a stay in the Betty Ford Clinic. I wish him the best.
I would be in favor of trading the Kenyan Imposter for a REAL President who can make the hard choices and decisions that will restore our economy with jobs and tax cuts, not placating the masses with food stamps and promises. Would even give up a first round draft pick.
This is a fine idea whose costs can be further reduced by making it available at no cost in supermarkets, eliminating the bureaucracy of approving of eligibility, distribution, and the fraud that is so prevalent in the existing food stamp program. The biggest scam is taking your monthly allowance into a bodega, ringing up the full amount in the register, and receiving 40 to 50 percent of the value, which is spent on drugs. Of course this is illegal and a screaming waste of taxpayers money, but it is rarely investigated and almost never prosecuted for fear of being viewed as "racist" or "against the poor, hungry children". I would bet that in a ghetto neighborhood where there are food banks and soup kitchens fraud accounts for at least 50% of SNAP card use. A point that you did not mention about the soylent plan is the fact that taste buds can be a great motivator. After boring your palate with a mundane [yet healthy] intake of soylent day in and day out you might be motivated to TAKE A JOB so you can walk into a restaurant or diner and gratify your appetite at your own expense. Under this plan, the hungry are fed, the ones that can be motivated get motivated, and the dope fiend feeds his veins without the donation of my tax money.
Who would purchase a book [for themselves, of course] without the intention of reading it? When you stumble to the Liquor-Mart for your daily bottle of Ol' Rotgut [Still $3.99/ Qt./ do you not plan to guzzle it immediately? Unlike cheap booze, which you know the dizzying results lead to, actually OPENING the book and READING it can lead to an intelligent post.
If a great majority of adults on food stamps work for a living, where are their priorities? What comes first out of the paycheck, the grocer or the fellow who sells the big gold neck chains? The store that sells $250.00 sneakers? Or perhaps the gent supplying the white powder or marijuana that is so popular in the ghetto? Of course, the bears appetite cannot be eased as simply as the one of the govt. supplicant; Mr. bear isn't allowed to vote for his free goodies.
Animals will kill for food. Multi-generational gov't dependants have been trained like Pavlov's dog to stand in line for food. They WILL, in fact, kill for drugs.
"Minimum of 10 million to 25 million concentrated population." The heaviest populated city in the US is NYC, with only 8.3 million people. Dummy.
Maybe...GE Bored? Always a good imbroglio on this board; I especially enjoy savaging drunken rogere whose feeble minded liberal positions are further skewed by the amount of Ol' Rotgut he has consumed. Makes for fun times between the trades.
Keeping ANY type of income away from the gov't who will waste every penny of it is analogous to keeping matches out of the hands of small children. You are protecting your own prpperty.
EVERYONE is against the food stamps that pay for rogere's Ol' Rotgut..[Still $3.99/ qt.] As a pre-emptive strike against Globalism, the distiller of this fine beverage has promised never to move the dirt encrusted stills from the verdant hills of Camden NJ, even though the company would face decreased labor rates in Mexico. NAFTA be damned, thunders rogere, I am a Great American, buying my AMERICAN booze, with food stamps printed in AMERICA, kindly provided from the labors of greedy AMERICANS.
