of WHITE voted for OBAMA in this election. sorry to bust your pathetic little racist bubble. dumb-asses...
So you are saying that over 8 million Christians that sit this election out are racist? That should bring them out next time to vote for any democrat that runs. The white Christians stayed home because they didn't feel either man was a Christian or a conservative. Find us another Reagan and then you'll see who wins the next election. Mitt Romney was saying anything to get elected - just like Obama. The Mormon faith is a cult in the eyes of many Christians. You don't know much about the Christian faith.

Growing up, my dad worked 70-80 hours a week and my mother stayed home with us. We didn't have much, but we got by. My point is, with government assistance people rarely try to go that extra mile to better themselves by getting a better job or higher education. Kids won't starve if we massively reduce government assistance, but parents will sacrifice, work harder and make better decisions. Welfare should never be a way of life - and it has become just that. Unfortunately, people like you have bought into the government's lie that our massive welfare state is necessary. And what is wrong with working hard to have nice things? Just because a person ha nicer things than I do, don't envy them or look at them negatively, as it appears you do.
you look at them negatively so that's what you get back I just know that spending time with your family is more important than having wants. You should worry about what you need. I don't understand how people here have no problem sending money to other country so their poor children can eat but be angry you have to give a little to our country so our children can eat...like I said the system will always be taken advantage of but some families need it they have been hit hard with job cuts and losing their insurance. No matter what laws we make some people will slip through the cracks but to me if I'm helping one family who really needs it its worth it. You said your self you live well so obviously you don't need the money as much as someone else might need it have a heart. You are puttimg everyone on welfare in the same bracket.

I am all for helping those who try and help themselves. The government housing has boomed. Food stamps are not just for the needy any more. The system is broken!!!!! I have neighbors who have two or three nice cars, campers and go on nice vacations. How do they do it? I don't know how they do it but I am ready to find out. Free giveaways is the place for me so I told my boss goodbye today!

just wondering how do you fix it. That is the big question. I know people need help and I know people will ride the system as long as they can. People can only make it better for themself we can't change their character but I myself don't want to see children do without because parents don't want to do nothing to help themself. At the same time I know a lot of people use the system for what it is attended for. So with that said how do you fix a broken system?

There is a lot of ways they could do it, but being on government assistance only is not one of those ways...

i know a woman on welfare that lives in the projects in rogersville get food stamps cell phone free cable and electric, then she runs a business on ebay and makes god knows what just so she can pay about 200 in taxes, that way she can file a tax return to get the roughly 5 bucks taken out and claim earned income credit for her kids, sge gets back 6 to 8 grand every year, i think the gov should take all tax refunds from anyone getting assistance on welfare or food stamp programs.i live on 1222 bucks a month and it aint easy but i dont get welfare and she shouldnt either

I know exactly how to fix it.. if you are between the ages of 18-60 and you get welfare, you have to work FOR FREE to get your benefits.. What kind of work? Babysitting for young single folks/families where they don't have to pay daycare.. picking up trash on the side of the road.. cooking and helping serve people at shelters.. etc. there's a lot of ways folks can earn their welfare.

You fix it by slashing the program. People have become addicted to the never ending free handouts. Most people care for their children and put them first, even the worst of the government moochers. We have to stop this insanity! There may be a few years of temporary pain, but once people see the handouts cease, they would quickly become more motivated to work!

I have been busy and not able to post but I wanted to say that I agreed with what you said earlier. The argument that taking away government assistance will make the kids hungry is moot due to the fact that the parents most likely are not using the benefits for the kids anyways. If they have enough money to afford cable, cell phones, nice cars, name brand clothes and many other things while on welfare then they need to lose their benefits. Those things are luxuries, not necessities. Priorities would suddenly be put back in order without the safety net of government assistance.

I totally agree. The government had pulled quite a ruse in convincing people such as the previous poster that welfare in its current form is crucial. The government has masses of people who will fight to no end, because they are convinced America will fall apart if welfare is slashed. I would argue that if welfare was totally eliminated, you would see a surge in the economy due to masses of people suddenly re-entering the work force with a newfound drive and desire to work. Welfare programs keep people in the modern day definition of poverty, so of severely slashed or eliminated, more children would soon be living in a house where there was a productive mother and/or father, which would change the direction that the child is headed.

the parents should not be the focusw its the children I am concerned for. I think if you receive benefits you should be routinely drug tested. If positive then investigated that would cut out the people who sell their food stamps for their habits instead of using it to feed the children! That would take care of some of them. But some people need the assistance. You need to acknowledge that!

school-aged Kids get to eat free at school, lunch and breakfast, although certainly that sucks due to that bitch Michelle Obama sticking her pointy nose into this aspect of school life, however, the welfare needs to be totally overhauled. Where I came from, the damn druggie parents didn't buy food for the kids anyway... they were always starving.. our church did what we could to feed them and always had food around every service because we knew those poor kids weren't getting the benefit of the money. So stop it- probably won't make much difference to the kids.. All the money you save on welfare you could set up mobile feeding stations for kids/people that wanted to eat. If they don't like it, shrugs.. get a damn job!.

I agree that the children are the ones suffering but you are assuming that everyone that abusing welfare is on drugs. That is not true. Yes that will weed out some of them but not all. I bet you that the local rent own places see an increase in payments right after welfare checks arrive. At one time people had pride in themselves. Going on welfare was considered insult. Now people take pride in the stuff they have, not in the person they are.

so my dad is under 65 and he's disabled are you say he shouldn't qualify...my mom works so they don't qualify but if he were single??....and if your over 18 you don't qualify for medicaid...so eventually that will probably be the case. Its my understanding if you are on welfare you have to go so many places a week and put in applications...as far as the food stamps you don't you can qualify for food stamps even though you work depending on how much your income is.
