First of all, There are No Poor people in this Country. This is the only Country where you never have to work a day in your life and you will get Free Government Housing, Welfare Check, Food Stamps, Free Obama Phone, Free Medical, Go to School for Free, and get your Utilities Paid.
If there are so called poor children going to bed hungry in America, It's because their mommas are spending their welfare checks and trading their food stamps for crack, alcohol and taking care of their boyfriends that refuse to work !

Had I not got on the BLue Island Salary to Pension Plan my family would have needed Section 8 and a Link card. Instead built our brand new home outside of Blue Island, of course.

One can never have too much money, too many pensions, or occupy too many elected positions. As long as there is Direct Deposit and there are taxpayers we will collect a check from our Friends and Family Salary to Pension Suction Program.......it is after all, our money and our collect a check program.

Honestly, the health insurance is superior to any health insurance offered by any employer and our pensions are transferable to spouse or children.
