After read a few of the recent posts in this thread, I have come to realize that the shallow end of the gene pool is overfloying.

OT, you're right about that, too. It's alot the same here.
I had a Dr. tell me one time that a Factory will use you up and throw you away, especially the Factories of today that require you to work a lot harder than they used to, under a lot worse conditions. And alot of the workers aren't capable, or don't have enough confidence in themselves, to do any of the jobs except the hardest Ones and they will literally work themselves to death at those hard jobs, doing everything the hard way, rather than trying to find easier, safer ways to do them, while accomplishing the same results.
I bet that you are on welfare. Am I right?

The lying Democrats pulled one over on everyone and the media is just now picking up on it. Barry's Obama's tax plan for the "RICH" has translated into taxes going up on 77% of tax payers. That's right, you thought only maybe 2% of the "rich" tax payers got hit with higher taxes, LOL...wrong. Fact check this Democraps.......A working person making less than $10,000 will see a $68 per year increase in his federal taxes now.

I don't have as big a problem with that as I so Sassy's scenario. I don't think we should be paying drug addicted parents so that they can keep their children because we all know drug addicted parents are not taking care of their kids with that money. If we really have that big a problem with drug addicted parents, then maybe it is time we open orphanages in this country because the chances of a child raised in that environment becoming productive members of society are slim, so it sounds like we are perpetuating the problem.
I said in my first post that I understand some people needing those benefits. I have seen several that I don't think fit that category. I know some 30 to 40 somethings that are on it because they have back pain, and will work for cash if they can find someone who will give it to them. I have back pain too... I believe the lawyer ads on TV are a good indication that we have a problem. They show those 30 to 40 somethings that are so happy that the lawyer got them "the money they deserve". No, I do not want those people and drug addicts drawing SS disability benefits!
But you were against drug testing for welfare and food stamps?

You do realize that at some point, "chronically unemployed" will become a disability. They are already considered a minority with special protections. We gotta do something with these people - might as well put them on disability. It'll be cheaper than extending unemployment benefits.

We are still getting a tax break on our income taxes. The R's insisted that this same break must extend all the way up to $450,000 per year!(They look after the rich)
What you are talking about is the temporary holiday on withholding tax (SS) Obama gave us a couple of years back to help us in the recession. So the current 4.2% withholding goes back to the usual 6.2%. Toughen up and don't be bitter about the election outcome.

Are you a mind reader now too Tim? I didn't post anything even close to pertaining to drug testing for food stamps. The rest of your post is ridiculous as usual.

It's really hard to ask a Eunuch to toughen up.......I'm sorry for that comment!
Anyhow old Limbaugh and Beck really scammed that Tea Party-Aligned group FreedomWorks for Millions of Bucks, saying they didn't get their money's worth. HA!

I may be wrong, but wasn't the original SS deduction 7.5%? If I am correct, it didn't even go back to the original deduction. So the increase is 2% or $200 on every 10K.

I didn't say I agreed with it, I just posted the reason for it, from the State and Federal Gov't.'s point of view, which is MONEY. The cheaper alternative is what the Gov't. always looks for, when they really don't know what to do about a problem, just like alot of Others do, also.
If there is no acceptable solution, yet something HAS to be done, then just do the cheaper option...that's true in every situation, inside and outside of Gov't., if you think about it, even in Individual situations.

If memory serves, because I posted a Link SINCE the Fiscal Cliff Deal, telling the figures...it was originally 6.2%, before the Recession, and it went back up to 4.2%, which leaves it still 2% lower than it was before the TEMPORARY decrease due to the bad economy.
I don't remember the percentage it increased FROM, that it had been temporarily lowered to because of the bad economy.
So YES, it is STILL 2% LOWER than it was before the Recession!

I agree, but when you have such a massive problem in a Society, what alternative is there? Apparently, the Gov't. doesn't know and I certainly don't.
I have a Theory about the Drug problem in this Country, that is not complimentary to the Gov't. in any way, but I don't think it's a good idea to post it because, the Conspiracy Theorists would go crazy with it and not even consider that it's just one Person's "Theory" (or possibility)...it is in no way, carved in stone!

Job Report;
GW's first term, started with 132.47 million, ended with 132.45 million- effectively zero job growth.
Obama's first term started with 133.56 million and as of Dec. it's 134.02 million, a net gain of .3%

The Economy is definitely growing, slowly but surely. Although it's not as fast as all of us would like, it is going in the right direction and as long as it doesn't reverse in the opposite direction, there's Hope that we will get there, in time!
Considering where we started, and what could have happened...I'll take it and be glad of it!
