Honestly, most of the lazy bums who wanted to get on the dole rather than do something productive were like the Whites of West Virginia: drunken, druggy, and bigoted republican.
Now, dearest, you're cutting a little close to home, though I realize you're just making a point. Oh hell, I totally agree with you, they're a bunch of Yahoos made worse by the Department of Homeland Security moving its idiots out there en masse and the Air Force base which provides me with Galaxy class planes flying over the bedroom at all hours. It's difficult for a man to do his patriotic duty when he's being constantly interrupted by yahoos doing their patriotic duty.

Good. Simple is about your speed.
I held back from saying "simpleminded".
Yes, I always subscribe to the theory that calling someone smarter than me, "stoopid," is my best defense against their smarty-pants comments and.... thoughts about stuff.

Social Security’s Sham Guarantee

How many times during the recent debate over Social Security reform have you heard someone refer to Social Security’s “guaranteed benefit”? The AARP says “Social Security is the guaranteed part of your retirement plan.” Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, touts the system’s “guaranteed retirement benefit.” The liberal activist group ProtectYourCheck.org , headed by former Clinton chief of staff Harold Ickes, is running ads calling Social Security “a guarantee you earned.”

But Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.

They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

I'm curious as to what it's going to take for some people to figure out we're about to get hit by a freight train.
Obamacare is designed to create a disaster to force socialized medicine.

Barack knows how to play politics to destroy America.

Carry on the marathon judgit tourney without me till I return! As usual I will share a couple of my secrets with my topix friends:
As I have revealed, if you want to get an edge in the judgit race, doubling up on the industrial strength depends are a must. And constipating foods are a big help!! I recommend cheese and lots of it!! Multiple IP adresses are a must as well!!!!

That's because no one reads your stuff, Sam. You could ask the same question (whatever it is) for the rest of your life and literally no one will answer you, much like when you were in school.

I'll tell you what, if you own stock you pretty much have to send the president a thank you note. I mean seriously ever since he took office it's been going up and up and up.
If you want I can draft something and we can all sign it.
Send your thank you note to Ben Bernanke.

Lily... the Democreep that just claimed yesterday she never posts as anyone but lily, yet a few weeks ago said she enjoyed posting as others and also posted a dem hillbilly post, as lily, forgetting to use her proxy.

Democrats can be trusted, right?

'Obamacare is designed to create a disaster to force socialized medicine.' Hmmmmmm... nope. A disaster would have to be on the order of, say, a meteor landing on Kansas or something. Once a million of so of you were killed and injured we'd have universal healthcare in a heartbeat.

Transcript of Obama's response, via ABC News:

Right now, what I’m trying to do is create an atmosphere where Democrats and Republicans can go ahead, get together, and try to get something done. And, y– you know– I think what’s important to recognize is that– we’ve already cut–$2.5–$2.7 trillion out of the deficit. If the sequester stays in, you’ve got over $3.5 trillion of deficit reduction already.
And, so, we don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. In fact, for the next ten years, it’s gonna be in a sustainable place. The question is, can we do it smarter, can we do it better? And– you know, what I’m saying to them is I am prepared to do some tough stuff. Neither side’s gonna get 100%. That’s what the American people are lookin’ for. That’s what’s gonna be good for jobs. That’s what’s gonna be good for growth.

But ultimately, it may be that– the differences are just– too wide. It may be that ideologically, if their position is,“We can’t do any revenue,” or,“We can only do revenue if we gut Medicare or gut Social Security or gut Medicaid,” if that’s the position, then we’re probably not gonna be able to get a deal.
