Are you still asserting that those on public assistance are stealing Carol? Once again, a great many if not most work at low paying jobs and use public assistance to make ends meet. If the minimum wage was raised they would be able to do so on their own.
Stop calling yourself a Christian Carol; you're a fraud.
By the numbers:
In 40 states welfare pays more than an $8.00 an hour job. In 17 states the welfare package is more generous than a $10.00 an hour job.
In Hawaii, Alaska, Massachusetts, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, New York, and Rhode Island welfare pays more than a $12.00 an hour job--or two and a half times the minimum wage.
In nine states welfare pays more than the average first-year salary for a teacher. In 29 states it pays more than the average starting salary for a secretary. And in the six most generous states it pays more than the entry-level salary for a computer programmer.
Welfare benefits are especially generous in large cities. Welfare provides the equivalent of an hourly pretax wage of $14.75 in New York City,$12.45 in Philadelphia,$11.35 in Baltimore, and $10.90 in Detroit.
So the incentive is NOT to work. Just sit back and collect the free money!

BTW, minimum wage was NEVER intended to support a family, buy a house. It is intended to help college students, extra cash, motivate folks to obtain skills that do pay good. you folks and your ignorance about minimum wage. A pay for unskilled monkey labor.

A growing paper trail continues to implicate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) with regards to the September 2013 lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said on Tuesday.

“The governor has absolutely and blatantly not told the truth about what was going on in his office,” Maddow said.

The Little People serve only one purpose for the Hillaries and Magic Negro's: canon fodder.
From there, they come in handy for photo-ops showing them to be patriotic leaders.
I still can hear the Boy Messiah on the Pennsylvania campaign trail talking bout the locals:
“You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them,” Obama said.“And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Like I said. The Hillaries and Magic Negro's have little use for to the little people other than to get votes in whatever way - legal or illegal - they can. Suckers - the lot of them.
Its probably a mercy that you arent bright enough to realize that all this sewage you constanly project on Obama speaks volumes about you and very little about Obama.Lmao!

Yeah, but nobody trusts this president.
His Attorney General, Eric Holder, the head of the Department of Justice, was caught red-handed confiscating personal emails and phone calls from members of the press.
And this president said he was doing a great job.
At least we were still in Kansas under Bush.
Still going with that damned lie Carol? Records of phone calls made by AP reporters were obtained by subpoena and gathering such information was deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court in the case of Smith v Maryland. It ruled that;
"This Court has held repeatedly that the Fourth Amendment does not prohibit the obtaining of information revealed to a third party and conveyed by him to Government authorities, even if the information is revealed on the assumption that it will be used only for a limited purpose and the confidence placed in the third party will not be betrayed."
In the case of James Rosen, access to his emails and other information was obtained by a legally obtained warrant issued by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Wishful thinking confused with reality.
A hallmark of the Right.
Their mouth breathing and sweaty attempts to turn this into a major scandal for the administration and Faux Outrage were patheticly transparent to everyone but Fox Slaves.
The ham handed exploitation of the Four Victims and their families in an attempt to turn them into some kind of Tea Bag Martyrs was off putting and unseemly to most people.
Especially in light of the Republican role in cutting embassy security Budgets and the Rights sound of crickets reaction to the numerous Embassy attacks on George W.'s watch.

And the MSM was complacent and complicit in promoting the lie because to admit it was a deliberate attack would take away from pre-election Obama's boast that he had put alqaeda out of commission.

The evidence is in front of all as shown by how the MSM is handling the situation with Chris Christie.

Does anyone who thinks that a traffic jam at the George Washington Bridge should attract a governor's attention have any idea how many traffic jams there are on the various highways leading into Manhattan?

Any governor who devoted his time to looking into traffic jams between New Jersey and New York would have very little time left for doing anything else.

If anything good comes out of this shabby episode of political vindictiveness by Governor Christie's staffers, it showed what a skewed sense of perspective most of the media have on what kinds of issues are important.

It is not that the media consider traffic jams more important than human lives. But the fact that Christie is the current frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 -- and is ahead of Hillary Clinton in the polls -- makes him a target for a partisan media.

Media coverage of the traffic jam in New Jersey was several times as extensive as any -- or all -- of these far more consequential scandals in Washington. Moreover, many of these media reactions simply assumed that Governor Christie must have known about the traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge.

But unlike Barack Obama, Christie did not duck the media or sidestep questions. Nor did he resort to euphemisms or cry out, like Hillary Clinton, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

As an EXECUTIVE & A LEADER--two things Dear Leader Obama clearly is NOT--Chris Christie met the questions head on and gave unequivocal answers -- the kind of answers that could, and should, destroy his political future if they are not true.

More important, Governor Christie quickly fired the people he held responsible for deliberately creating a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge. Contrast that with the many scandals in Washington for which President Obama has not fired anyone.

While the creation of a traffic jam in a small New Jersey town shows the calloused ugliness too often found among political operators puffed up with their own power, this cannot compare with the threat to freedom when the Internal Revenue Service targets the administration's political opponents during an election year.

Nor can a traffic jam compare with the Department of Justice's gun-running operation that led to the death of an American Border Patrol agent in the southwest or the State Department's actions and inactions that led to the deaths of four American officials killed by terrorists in Benghazi.

New Scandal, Same Old Christie

It’s not the first time a top official has been fired for lying to the governor.

.... Contrary to his carefully cultivated reputation as a hard-charging, no-nonsense prosecutor — the scourge of political corruption — the governor seems downright passive when it comes to his own circle. He takes no investigative initiative. He reacts as embarrassing developments occur and tweaks his story accordingly. He is caught flatfooted and unprepared when damning disclosures, like this week’s e-mails involving his close aides, inevitably emerge.

When he finally takes action, moreover, it turns out to be the only conceivable action any ambitious politician would take under the circumstances. His fans are applauding his decisiveness, but what ambitious politician who had any hope of running for president would not have fired Bridget Kelly once those e-mails hit the news? The Obama comparison doesn’t cut it: Obama is already president and, with the press carrying his water, he doesn’t have to fire anyone — not Sebelius, not Holder, not Rice, no one. Christie doesn’t have that luxury.....

There is zero doubt the aide told Christie that she caused the bridge to be closed. The way she did it was probably by winking/smiling while she delivered the news about the traffic jam. We won't know for sure how she did it until DBWriter investigates this governmental abuse of power, something he detests. He appears to be waiting until he hears from the voices in his head.
