Keep the Entitlement Monster ALIVE!

“Only government can provide the short-term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe. Only government can break the vicious cycles that are crippling our economy.”
- President-Elect Barack Obama

The President(s) of the United States are working tirelessly to extend more cash to the needy – be they profligate families, incompetent businesses, self-serving non-profits, tax-payer buoyed propaganda outlets, or corporate welfare queens.

We MUST keep the Entitlement Monster Alive!

Do your part. Support government stimulus of the economy, support unbridled unionism, support the expansion of the social safety net, support nationalized health care, and demand your rights as a dependent of the United States government.

Only thus can government of the people, by the people, over the people be restored.

Cheers,

Charlie

And when there is no one left working to pay their taxes, where will the money come from?

When your expenditures exceed your GDP, you are screwed. The only way America can spend more money is if their GDP grows, and then they can only spend as much as the GDP grows just to remain in the same spot. With Obama's plans to print and spend, spend, spend, America will be so screwed.

Yes, but think of the CHIILLDREEN!!!!

It doesn't matter whether people have ever heard of honest work or of morals; it only matters that they get their giro every couple of weeks.

The (non)-working class need to survive and to have an acceptable standard of living. Would you deny Kaylee, Chantelle and Kingsmill their right to the latest games console?

And what about their only having access to Freeview on two small TVs instead of having Sky Sports on four large plasma screen TVs?

What an example of the rich growing richer while the poor grow poorer! You evil right-wing types should be ashamed of yourselves!

You are all right on the money, as it were!

We recommend a review of the Heritage Foundtion's excellent report - "Understanding Poverty and Economic Inequality in the United States" [http://www.heritage.org/Research/Welfare/bg1796.cfm].

SOME HIGHLIGHTS:

In 1971, only about 32 percent of all Americans enjoyed air conditioning in their homes. By 2001, 76 percent of poor people had air conditioning. In 1971, only 43 percent of Americans owned a color television; in 2001, 97 percent of poor people owned at least one. In 1971, 1 percent of American homes had a microwave oven; in 2001, 73 percent of poor people had one. Forty-six percent of poor households own their homes. Only about 6 percent of poor households are overcrowded. The average poor American has more living space than the average non-poor individual living in Paris, London, Vienna, Athens and other European cities.

Nearly three-quarters of poor households own a car; 30 percent own two or more cars. Seventy-eight percent of the poor have a VCR or DVD player; 62 percent have cable or satellite TV reception; and one-third have an automatic dishwasher.

Time was folks used to distinguish between "want" and "need". Not so much anymore, eh?

Nice work Rob Farrington. Keep stereotyping and racism alive in America.

Well done Anonymous; missing the larger point entirely, as per usual.

Oh so you condone that sort of ignorance here Charlie? Do you always defend anyone who agrees with you no matter how insulting their comment? You should be ashamed to yourself.

Maybe Mr. Farrington should stick to the "larger point" and leave the comedy to Charlie. Mr Farrington's unfortunate quips just dilute his argument and misrepresent this site.

My Dear Anonymous,

Let us cut to the chase. That the vast majority of U.S. entitlement funds are poured into the African-American community is a fact, not a stereotype. That this "pouring" has devasted rather than benefited that community, is also a fact, one that it is willfully ignored by the Leftist do-gooders who enforce it.

We strongly suggest you read John Perazzo's outstanding analysis, "Victims of the Left: Black Americans" - http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/C%20-%20Victims%20-%20final.doc .

Here you will see, by the numbers, how the New Deal welfare state and its proprietors have utterly decimated black culture in America. (By the by - this is one of numerous such analyses.)

This is not racial stereotyping. This is a cultural reality, and a tragedy of man's own making. A tragedy which rapid accusations of "racism" - shutting down all honest analysis - have done wonders to perpetuate.

If you are so gravely offended at Mr. Farrington's "ignorance", than surely you will be OUTRAGED at the harvest of the liberal plantation.

This would be the "larger point" we suggested you were missing.

Cheers,

Charlie

I was questioning the choice of names he used when speaking about the black children and their wee's and their plasmas.

Kaylee, Chantelle and Kingsmill

I was not questioning the larger point he was lamely attempting to make which you make more eloquently.
