We are becoming a nation overrun by ryou food stamp nitwits as been stated...

Democrats started this drive for government dependent via Johnson's "war" on poverty you loser.

If you are still going to bed hungry it's the fault of your guardian or obama, not republicans, you moron....

Just to reiterate the obvious....
cutting taxes doesn't achieve prosperity. just ask Bush.

Were you just as critical of George Bush?
If so please give an example.
George Bush wasn't a radical left liberal with a past history of Marxist associations who thought fundamentally transforming this nation was his personal mission. George Bush also didn't demonize the opposition but tried to work with them.

Same with Bill Clinton.

Just Barack Obama.

No, when I was laid off I couldn't even borrow money because I didn't have a job. I did have a house payment, car payment, health insurance payment and two little kids to feed. There was no "voluntary" support. I was fortunate enough to have parents that loaned me money they could barely afford. Eventually I was able to find another job and start over and pay back my parents. Some people don't have parents that can afford to help and some people can't find jobs that can support a family. What about them?
Interesting, so someone voluntarily supported you and you paid them back.
Those on welfare should pay back what the government stole for them, do you agree?

Btw charities existed forever, without government monopoly on handouts charities would thrive.

I agree.
They need to find a plot of government land and pitch a tent and plant a garden and sell the crops.
Would you have a problem with that?

Only because we're in a lull, LCN...only because we're in a lull.

Tomorrow is the last day before all hell breaks loose. Can't we please enjoy this lull while it lasts?

Can't wait to hear the State of the Union Address in three more weeks. Especially if there's even more bad news for Obamacare right out of the starting gate beginning January 1.

You still don't seem to understand the bad news already is just the beginning.

Progressives make taxpayers pay for the right to save the environment....

'Colorado: Drivers will see a new annual $50 fee for plug-in electric cars. Colorado is one of several states looking to capture revenue from alternative fuel, electric and hybrid vehicles."

Do you agree that government laws and policies have stifled American companies abilities to open businesses and manufacturing facilities?

Do you support cutting off social security and eliminating the minimum wage?

You're absolutely right. Cutting taxes MUST go hand-in-hand with cutting spending.

Even so, the Democrats DID control Congress for four years - two years before and after the economy bottomed out. However, too many Republicans were also guilty of acting like Democrats.

Just wish the Democrats had learned the same lesson as Republicans. Stop acting like Democrats.
