How do you expect a single mother to care for 15 children on her own? This is why America has "safety nets". Her children deserve to be fed, housed, clothed, educated and medical care, regardless of the cost. Don't be so selfish. Life is not all about you.

Detroit is failing because all of their giant corporations are sending all the jobs to China where they can pay there workers slave wages and no benefits like Walmart and Mcdonalds. Now with Michigan's disasterous new "right to work" law the situation will only get worse. Republicans and their anti-union stance is what has destroyed Detroit.

Not surprising that you don't hold the loser mother responsible for having children that she obviously cannot afford. Oh wait I forgot ... in some communities children are considered earning potential.

This is just one more example of the losers gone wild in this country. This woman deserves to be sterilized and her children removed from her obviously remiss care.

Welfare abuse runs deep

A convicted drug dealer — who cops said wanted to use cash from his taxpayer-funded EBT card to post bail — is the new face of welfare abuse, according to tough-minded lawmakers who are pushing the reform-resistant Patrick administration for a crackdown.

Welfare abuse gets Americans’ dander up

Prior to reform in the Clinton era, welfare programs were rife with abuse: people lied about their income, their dependents, their health or their ability to work in order to manipulate the welfare system and claim years of undeserved benefits. Reform law replaced a federal entitlement with grants to the states, while putting a lifetime limit on how long families can get aid and requiring recipients to eventually go to work.

Federal law now bars welfare recipients from using their cash assistance in strip clubs, casinos and liquor stores. States must change their own laws to conform by 2014. Some states have been going even further, blocking the use of benefits for other items deemed frivolous, such as porn, cruises, psychic readings, cigarettes, lottery tickets and tattoos.

The efforts prompted critics to claim that the restrictions are based on stereotypes about people on welfare. They call the notion of any widespread abuse a myth.

But outrages remain. A Detroit-area woman was arrested last year for collecting about $5,500 in food aid and medical benefits after winning a $735,000 lottery prize.

People who can afford drugs, booze and tattoos have no business asking for others to foot the bill for their rent and groceries.

So what? When Sen.

Democrats follow the law. Republicans try to skirt it.

Yes the Democrats are such law biding citizens:

As one leading Democrat put it: "Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter."

That Democrat was then-Sen. Tom Daschle in 1998. The same Tom Daschle, we've since learned, who failed to pay more than $100,000 in back taxes for perks he received as one of Washington's most relentless influence-peddlers -- that is, until he realized he might receive a job in the Obama administration spending the money most Americans conscientiously send to Washington.

Treasury secretary, Timothy F. Geithner, also failed to pay taxes he owed (even though he surely must have known he owed them) until it became politically expedient to pay them. Now he runs the IRS. Take that, suckers.

Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the supreme tax-writing body in the United States, the House Ways and Means Committee, is under investigation for, among other things, dodging taxes. His excuse for his admitted mistakes is that he was sloppy and ignorant, but not criminal. Geithner and Daschle make similar noises.

Did you see the huge crowds of protesters that flooded the Michigan Capitol on Tuesday? They were there to protest two bills there were being considered by the state legislature that would limit the power of unions in the state. Michigan lawmakers approved the bills and this absolutely infuriated the protesters. There is a lot of passion on both sides of this debate, but I am afraid that both sides in this debate are missing the bigger picture. If we keep shipping millions of our jobs to China, there isn't going to be work for anyone no matter how much power unions have or don't have. During the month of October, the U.S. trade deficit increased to 42.2 billion dollars. Our trade with China accounted for most of that deficit. Our trade deficit with China in October increased to a new all-time one month record of 29.5 billion dollars. Nearly 30 billion dollars that could have gone to U.S. businesses and U.S. workers went to China instead. Since 1975, a total of about 8 trillion dollars that could have gone to U.S. businesses and U.S. workers went to the rest of the world instead. Shiny new factories are going up all over China, and meanwhile our once great manufacturing cities are degenerating into desolate wastelands. So what is going to happen when all of the good paying manufacturing jobs are gone? Are we all going to fight bitterly over whether we should unionize the low paying jobs that remain at places such as Wal-Mart and McDonalds? Such an approach is not going to bring back prosperity to America. We desperately need to start building things and start creating real wealth inside this country once again. We desperately need to stop sending tens of thousands of businesses, millions of jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth out of the country. Unfortunately, I don't see anyone out there holding protests about our trade deficit. Nobody really seems to care, so our economy will continue to bleed good jobs and the middle class will continue to be destroyed.

What a surprise.....
The AR15 he stole belonged to a right-wing NRA gun nut. Proof positive that when guns are available, gun crimes will occur. If a gun ban had been in effect, there would have been no gun for him to steal. Just another reason America needs to get rid of all these guns.

"Ghost writer". The term means that President Obama didn't write it. The ghost writer can write anything he wants. For instance, if I was your ghost writer I would write, "I, EasyEed, am a blithering idiot."
