Reality is there is NO [email protected] industury here and no damn jobs the chamber of commerce and pirates running this damn city are against any industry they are in it for themselves only and could give a damn less about jobless broke people here! They get stupid projects that is tremendously over priced that a few local politicians can reap the benefit of not the poor people! To top it off they use out of town and state contractors to do all the work! Think the local politicians give a flying [email protected] about the jobless and broke tax paying residents and the poverty here in ElDorado and Union County! Want to fill your pockets up and have Industry in the area so people can have a decent lifestyle Vote the pirates out and put ALL NEW FACES IN OFFICE!

No, not relatives, because we were raised better, but, yes, I have co-workers like that.....it's called inability to manage your money, living above your means, and being part of the "ME" society...."I want it...and I want it now" so I will just charge it and pay astronomical interest charges. Duh....digging yourself into a hole.

Rich people getting richer, poor people getting poorer, and no one cares. Rich people either had everything handed to them on a silver platter, or got their money cheating people. I would be ashamed either way, but I'd prefer the first.Middle class doesn't care, long as they can pay the rent. They have no sympathy for anyone, but worst of all, are the filthy rich.They care not about others,as long as they get their stomachs full.A grown man will knock a child out of the line for Soup Kitchen, and complain when that child is crying from hunger...

It ain't the Rich Folks job to care about the poor. It ain't the Middle Class folks job to care about the poor. It ain't the government's job to care for the poor. The poor are responsible for working their way out of their own poverty. The poor are poor because they are stupid, lazy, and prefer drugs & alcohol to working hard and living within their means. If we took every dollar from the rich and middle class and spread it out to all the low life class, they would piss it all off in one month and be broke again. This country is going to hell because we continue to allow the broke ass class to breed more broke ass children. Another few generations and the U.S. will look like Somalia.

Hmmmm..... Methinks Thou dost protest too much.....It ain't anybody's job to care about anybody else, huh? Which are YOU,"Mo Dallahs Than Cent's", Ya' can't be another, judging from your heartless, inhumane, hateful outlook on life. Did yo' Daddy teach you that, or yo' mama? I am so relieved, sir, that It isn't my job to straighten out yo' impossibly cold heart. The rich, sir, are busy working the middle and lower class to death while they sit in their thrones behind their desks, thinking up more ways to legally get into his neighbor's pockets. Take his medical care maybe? Or his food? Or the seniors' meds? They don't really need to live or breathe, do they?(not that they could afford to go to work, anyway....gas alone would blow that idea out tha' water.

Yes and some families can't help it. I know one couple that has four kids.(Birth control, right?). They probably make a combined 90,000 a yr which is pretty good but with four kids it stretches. They have just enough income to have a five bedroom house and decent vehicles which they will have to buy more of when their second, third and fourth kids hit driving age. Most of their paycheck goes to their house and car payments every month. Then food, utilities, etc. They can't save a dime but they make it and aren't wanting for anything. Now if a couple were making like 60,000 a year and had four kids I'd say they must be struggling. And stupid as f*ck to have had so many kids.

Actually, anyone who has more kids than they can afford is stupid, and they're burdening our already over-populated planet with more stupid people. Birth control is easy to come by. Idealistically I'd say a couple needs to have at least 100,000 in income for every three children.

Then there's another couple I know who only have two kids and probably make around 200,000-300,000 and are in debt! That's because they went and bought the most massive house they could make payments on and they both drive cars worth over 70 grand. And their oldest brat drives one worth over 50 grand. Instead of saving and having money in the bank which they totally could have done, they decided to spend as much as they could every month on fancy crap. The wife has a new 2500 dollar designer bag every time I see her. Whats funny is everyone thinks they're rich! But they have nothing other than payment after payment just to keep up a lifestyle they can't really even afford. Its so stupid because really they could live a comfortable life and have money saved up but instead they choose to live lavishly and put all their income into materials. Dumb dumb dumb.

So to you all businessmen, lawyers and doctors are evil and should give most of their money away to people who were either too lazy or not intelligent enough to work their way through eight to twelve years of education?

Poor people shouldn't ever have to WORK or EDUCATE themselves into a higher position, someone should just give it to them because?

Really, I want an answer. There is nothing hateful about expecting people to become innovative or educated enough to step up. Those McDonald's workers protesting for 15$ an hour? Did you know they want just as much as people who have learned a trade so they can make that much money. If those fast food workers want 15$ an hour they need to learn a trade or go back to school. It really is that simple.

Some people really do need welfare. Like people who are handicapped. But most people on welfare grew up on welfare and its all they know. So they resent people more successful than them. They are the ones with a hateful outlook on life because envy has created bitterness in them. Which is sad because all you have to do is work hard or get an education to be more successful than those that think they have the God given right to sit on their asses and get paid for other people's hard work.

Who do you think pays for the soup kitchens? Who do you think pays for the welfare? People who work, that's who. People who dedicate their time to giving to others. Next time a doctor saves your life or a lawyer keeps you out of prison I wonder how evil you will think they are then. In your opinion, anyone who works hard or is intelligent enough to go to get a college degree is evil? Nah. To you an evil person is anyone who has more than you and you hate them for it.

And how about all the industry fleeing the country? You think those businesses left because they're greedy and want to exploit Chinese children? No. They left because WE TAX BUSINESS MORE THAN ANY COUNTRY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. We PUNISH business in this country. And voters like you let it happen, all because Obama and his ilk told you that those "evil" businessmen need to "pay their fair share". So like anyone with a brain, those businessmen said "ok, you want to punish me for creating jobs, punish me for helping the economy, fine, I will send my business to a country that doesn't make me into a demon just for being productive." I can't blame them, and neither should you. But I wouldn't expect common sense from a MSNBC brainwashed zombie.

I am middle class, came from a family of 8 children, and had NOTHING handed to me and cheated NO one...I got a job when I was 17....worked all my life, lived frugally, saved my money, support 2 overseas children, who otherwise would not have food or water. Many Americans are spoiled brats, too lazy to work or bring themselves out of their circumstances. I owe them nothing.

It takes a focused individual to live within ones' means and forgo all of the shiny nothings that brings us debt. I have always paid cash for used older cars with lower mileage and drove them UNTIL I NEEDED an upgrade. I only used liability insurance to keep my premiums low. I love to shop at the goodwill store and have brought brand new clothes there. I only eat, at home, when I am hungry and I exercise regularly, no obesity here. The method to my madness was to retire early and have my home paid off before doing so. I made good money, not great money but we never went without the necessities. I never over indulged my children and taught them to consider if that big ticket stuff they wanted was worth the longer time at work. Work less, spend less and LIVE more.
