USA wastes money every day look at all the money spent sending a probe to mars and searching for water!! Who cares if mars has water not the average taxpayer but they fund the mission!! If the welfare system worked there wouldn't be any homelessness in the USA this country is supposed to be the richest but go to a city and you will see numerous homeless people!! Even in California where the rich people live!!How much has this war cost us in the past decade?? And no one would choose the life of being dirt poor!!

You are absolutely right "bad pony". some people here are stupid and all they know is to hate their neighbors for being poor. They are so stupid that they even go as far as blaming the poor and check drawing people of Buchanan co. as being the cause of the United States being in debt. It is quiet obvious that it is a small world to them. They don't even seem to realize that there are poor people in every other county in the united states that receive goverment assistance. They have no idea what the true big picture is.

Here's another idea. How about the ones on Food Stamps stop selling their food stamps for drugs or using it to just buy POP/SODA. How about you all actually use it for good since some of you so so need it. Lazy a$$
Thats OK

What is the difference in a poor person buying a soda pop or a pill and the politicians using tax dollars to pay prositutes and serve the best liquior that money can buy at their big parties and galas. Of course you are so dumb that you think they don't use and pay for drugs with your tax dollars.

You can't cut a program that feeds children because of a few people misusing it!! I know some people do sale their cards and some buy pop to sale to buy drugs but like I said that is just a few!! Most people use them to buy food for their kids and milk for the babies!! You can't stop feeding families that need that help!!! Have any of you people been to the grocery stores lately?? Before long even the rich will need food stamps to buy bread!! This nation is suffering from ignorance!! Rich get richer and the poorer get poorer!! There should be help for those in need of help!! If 1 child dies of starvation in this country it's way too many!! This is supposed to be the land of plenty!!! But its only for a select few!!!

The statements that were made by whoever created this discussion are hate filled!! No one should be called scum because they're receiving assistance!!! No one in this poverty stricken area should point fingers!! A lot of your own family receive assistance of some kind!! Heating assistance-Medicaid-Medicare partD extra help etc!!!

Our country does waste money every day, you cannot expect much from a government ran ignorantly. They spend over a trillion on a war of no purpose. A trillion annually that could completely erradicate hunger, wasted.
Continuation of our species should be one of everybody's top priorities. Earth has 2+Billion years left, minus plausible termination due to universal freeze/crunch, asteroids, etc. Take a look at how far we've progressed in a few thousand years. Imagine a few million years from now.
Thus, we're taking the first steps forward in the right direction through exploration of Mars.
Ofcourse you nor any other selfish/self-centered human being cares whether we colonize other planets or not (and it'll eventually happen with our rapid technological growth) because you know you'll have no awareness of the events.
The Welfare system was created in good faith to supply the elderly, the disabled, and the struggling to survive while they pursue jobs and higher education; NOT the lazy, pathological liars. This has been practically preached by many workers on this topic.
So many with little to no actual problems or struggles (mostly the 20-40 year old range) have lied and complained their way into receiving assistance, with having it as their career in mind, this is what we're infuriated over.
Lastly, you're wrong on many people not choosing the poor lifestyle. While yes, many are born into poverty.. they cannot help that fact. However, many of the Welfare recipients I've seen are physically and cognitively competent like everyone else. The ones that can pursue jobs and higher education refuse to because 'being on the draw' is a easy fixed-income free ride. Not everyone, but most.

No no ones going to live on Mars because there's no food stamps or government hand outs there. Stop trying to justify this. We're not talking about sick people who look healthy that need assistance. We're talking about lazy people who make their living by living off the gov't . They are not sick, never worked and never will. Yes the government is corrupt but two wrongs will never make a right.

The mental retards that start these threads claim that the only people who receive welfare, SSi, Social Security, Veterans ,ETC. live in Buchanan Co. If they have to express their wish for starvation for others that draw some kind of goverment Assistance please state the damn facts. Of course they don't have sense enough to do that. What would be wrong with saying the People of the United States, rather than the scum of Buchanan co. Buchanan couldn't hold a light to what is being given to these big cities . Tell it like it is or shut your fkn mouth on your neighbors.Sounds like you that started this thread, need to be receiving a check to pay your way in the crazy house for being the bearer of a devils heart and soul and dumber than hell.
We know the people of Buchanan county are small in numbers and are not the only ones getting a check. We can't change the world but change begins at home. Don't assume that we are talking about people who rightfully deserve their social security benefits like the retired or disabled. We are talking about those who lie or manipulate the system to get assistance and there's a lot of those living in this county and yes they are scum.

Not in the near future, but inevitably along with other potential habitable planets? Yes. A step forward is a step forward, period. Humanity generally knows the ugly truth that extinction of our species will be inevitable if we don't colonize other galaxies. To sit around and do nothing would be pitiful on our behalf.

And...did I meantion ONCE that us Americans would "own Mars and the Sun"..? No, when I say humanity I mean EVERY nation, all 6.6+Billion of us. Humanity in whole has the right to survive, so yes we ALL do have the right to colonize Mars and so on.

Only complete fools would want us to stay in this galaxy 2+Billion years and do nothing but watch themselves be incinerated by the Sun's end stage.

The point everyone is trying to make is that life shouldn't be "a free ride" because they desire it due to laziness, etc., but that they've EARNED it. I've meantioned the elderly, disabled, and struggling until they get back on their feet.

You did make a good point that looks can be deceiving, I was naive on casting judgement and I do apologize. That's why I've also said the last paragraph countless times already.

And, yeah....the ability to lift 50lb bags of dogfood, stand and walk a store over, and the cognitive ability to drive these backwood roads and make consumer choices based on the amount of revenue they've received...they aren't physically and psychosocially qualified enough to hold a simple job, or apply for FAFSA and pursue higher education through SwVCC (for example)...? Right.

If you want me to accept your statements, you have to realize what I'm getting across to you and others. Welfare wasn't designed to be a career for those who are temporarily disabled and struggling (bone fracture, single mother), etc.

It's the fact that people become lifers using temporary misfortune excuses, for the "free ride", etc. reasons.

You either earn, or have earned, your keep or not. There's no middle ground like the lazy, etc. system milkers would like to think there is.

I agree %100 with your statements, Worker. The point is simply not getting across. Sickening to even think about.

I hope you're the first to go to mars to test it out and see if humans can really live there!!!you need to stop studying science fiction!! You want poor people to starve so you can go to Mars!! Look this world as bad as it is is where you will live for the rest of your life maybe when we die we go to the heavens !! But no living person would ever see the day humans can visit other galaxies !! They are so far away by the time any one reached that destination they would be dead not only dead by old age but by a thousand years!! Sci fi fans like you need to understand that warp speed that gene Roddenberry thought up is impossible for a human body to withstand!!

We'll you sure could have fooled me because I would swear that you're currently living in your very own Parallel Universe. Why else would you think that dead beats should continue getting government assistance? A poor poor person and a dead beat is not one in the same. Stop trying to justify what you're saying by acting like everyone is dogging the poor and disabled. There's no shame in being poor but dead beats bottom feeders need to stop taking the assistance that's intended to truly help people get back on their feet.

Here you go again making me out to be a ignorant villian deserving misfortune for speaking the truth, typical mentality.

You nor I have knowledge of how TRULY advanced our technology is, little less how advanced it will be within the next few thousand years.. little less MILLIONS.

You nor I will have awareness, but that's no excuse for becoming sedentary on the issue - knowing that it's crucial for our species' survival.

You act like we're against the poor, elderly, and disabled, get it through your head: WE'RE NOT. How many 20-40 year olds (aside single moms) do you see on assistance that are NOT disabled but receive government assistance? I don't know about you but I've seen enough to puke my guts out in digust.

Read this article on Fission, Fusion, and Anti-Matter Rockets:

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/46101722/

Interstellar travel may be science fiction of today, but we're developing rapidly in space travel technology, particularly in deep space travel. Eventually, we'll be able to travel to these Earth-like planets in reasonable generation timeframes.

The government wastes over a trillion yearly, that could eradicate the poor lifestyle world-wide, to kill hundreds to save thousands when it's not our war to begin with.

We're not protecting our country by being over there, like so many believe, we can defend our country through placing anti-aircraft, anti-rocket technology along our borders and enhance our flight security...all at a fraction of the cost of killing terrorists, fighting other country's fight.

Those funds, along with system milker suppling funds, along with other currency waste could eliminate world poverty, and we could continue to advance overall.

Anything else?

It's easy when you know the faces that's been receiving assistance for years, even their whole lives. Many non-disabled and non-elderly have made a career out of what was intended to get them back out into the workforce and so forth.

That's how you know the difference, simply put, it's time and effort. Instead, many use time and effort to pathologically lie and complain to receive and continue receiving assistance.

We cannot judge, but the doctors, etc. know better, one in particular that sends people to a certain psychiatrist and they're guaranteed to receive assistance. I know because like I said a few comments back, I have some relatives I have %0 claim for because of the shameful acts.

Plus, the majority of this county knows one-another, making it that much easier to know those in need from those milking the system.

Amazing, isn't it? All it took was someone pitching one word, "ENTITLEMENTS" to change how poor people are viewed and treated in our society.
