You left out the welfare of the 1% that they receive. They call it "SUBSIDES"! Welfare on the impoverished is produced by the inequality of the laborers productivity distribution. Had the laborer paid adequate wages they would not require welfare. LOL that's how corporations like Wal Mart take advantage of that. They pay wages below living wages required making their employees eligible for all sorts of welfare programs as they are in poverty. Wal Mart presently require $900,000 in local communities to "SUBSIDIES" their labor force. Put your tabloid foxy comic books down and try to actually get the reality of what is transpiring right before your very eyes. Try a EGADS a book like "Price Of Inequality." Written by a Nobel Prize winner in economics.
You need to put down the tabloid foxy comic books since you want to refuse to understand that those people choose on their own to live poverty and don't create or want to create their own wealth because they know if they do they loose their welfare and they will tell you that in Detriot, MI which is why they refuse to work and if anything the Federal Government should bring back the WPA(Works Progress Administration) and make people work for that welare that they are getting for doing nothing and I give credit to FDR for that thinking and these people of today who are on the dole think it is owed to them which they have proved FDR right when FDR himself acknowledged the danger of welfare programs becoming "a habit with the country." In November 1933, he said, "When any man or woman goes on a dole something happens to them mentally and the quicker they are taken off the dole the better it is for them the rest of their lives." Early in 1935 Roosevelt argued, "We must preserve not only the bodies of the unemployed from destitution but also their self-respect, their self-reliance and courage and determination."

Later that year Roosevelt noted, "In this business of relief we are dealing with properly self-respecting Americans to whom a mere dole outrages every instinct of individual independence. Most Americans want to give something for what they get. That something, in this case honest work, is the saving barrier between them and moral disintegration. We propose to build that barrier high."

Works Progress Administration

The Works Progress Administration (renamed in 1939 as the Work Projects Administration; WPA) was the largest and most ambitious New Deal agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects,[1] including the construction of public buildings and roads. In much smaller but more famous projects the WPA employed musicians, artists, writers, actors and directors in large arts, drama, media, and literacy projects

In short those people weren't looking for a handout, just a hand, and a chance to get back on their feet. There is nothing wrong with helping people. Just don't cause welfare to become a way of life.

People during the Great Depression weren't looking for a handout which was true because there wasn't any like they have become accustom to in todays society and people expect handouts as if they are owed to them and if the Federal Government would eliminate welfare and bring back and replace welfare with a program similar to the WPA(Works Progress Administration) and eliminate welfare these deadbeats would get a culture shock of what Liberalism used to be like in the 1930's and what it meant to be a Working Liberal and nothing was free.

LIANO another example of how much Texas has regressed in their intelligence due to republicans austerity endeavors. Still fiddle faddling with no substance or facts. Spewing derogatory ignorance emulating the intoxication of the Tea Bagger.
Significant Finical Inequality in our USA has progressed under republican austerity policies since the early 1970’s. Highest acceleration to finical inequality has been addressed to the USA within the civilized developed nations.
Here in the USA in 2009 Texas rank the highest for finical inequality as Main was the lowest in accelerating inequality.
2011 CBO report illuminates that the top 1% increased their incomes by 275% after taxes over a period of 1979 to 2007. Compare this to a 60% in the middle class with gains of less than 40% to their incomes.
2012 exposes the 1% as having the same gap discrepancy to the 99% as it had in the 1920’s. Exhibiting a 20% increase to the 1% as the 99% suffered at a mere 1% gain.
Robert J. Shiller won the noble prize for economics,{2013} states his findings indicate that this increasing finical inequality within the USA is “The most important problem that we are facing now today”.
Presently populace is far more educated and interconnected than in the 1920’s. An enlighten populace recognizes the patterns of austerity’s restrictions to finical distributions and limited consumers , demands failure of the economics of that institution.
1929 and 2008 let loose the finical institutions to ravage the lower 99%. Profits and further hording of the fuel from the middle class dynamos for wealth flow and consumption. Final outcome were the “Great Depression/Recession” in our nations history.
All of the southern states suffer under an inequality that rivals the 3rd world nations of Africa. Interesting that they be “RED”. LOL the REDS have invaded the USA !
Observing Texas, with its extreme admiration for austerity polices, it becomes easily recognized their impending collapse. Reluctance and direct obstruction for the 1% to adhere to their laborer’s productivity distributions, in ratios that continues to fuel its middle class dynamos, will simply implode their debt upon themselves.

What is up with the name calling? I only asked a question..... there was no need for the name calling sir. Does it make you think that calling people names and talking to others like you do make you tough or something? Does it make that little peck grow? I think not SIR.

Well, stick to worrying about your little fur patch and I will stick to worrying about my little peter. You obviously have the intellectual capacity of a rock and trading
