A Ford Dealer's Report - From Tom Selkis'(Latham Ford) Facebook - True story yesterday at the dealership.
"I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.
One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus.
As he was reviewing her credit application with her he noticed she was on social security disability.
He said to her you don't look like you're disabled and unable to work.
She said well I'm really not. I could work if I wanted to, but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt (non-disabling injury).
She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check. And she gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent.
Oh yeah, and 250 minutes free on her phone.
That is just south of $3500.00 a month.
When she was working, she was taking home about $330.00 per week.
Do the math and then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to work.
If you multiply that by millions of people, you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country.
Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario, we are finished.
The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already, and there are not enough people working to pay enough taxes to support the non-working people? Riots?? Be prepared to protect your homes.
She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal by $10.00/month.
Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard earned money."
Defiant.that's one person.There is always fraud in ANY system.That doesn't mean that there aren't many people who NEED the help.And I doubt the veracity of the story in any event.If its true,ok.Get that person out of the system and in jail!

I don't think so. ALthough I agree there is a problem. This is an exageration. A SSD check for 800$ will get an individual like $25 in food stamps. I am invloved in social work.
The abuses and scams are at all all time high and one point 5 people now contribute to every one on the system. Our fall is imminent.

ALso, to get a Govt SSD check for say 2K a month means you have made huge money and paid in the max. One would not qualify for food stamps then unless many dependents. It is not easy to be found disabled. Most scammers are emotionally disabled (yeah, right) or some illness hard to prove. SOmeone with a broken back for example would be required an MRI and a SS Dr to examine and approve. Most of the scamming comes form those that live off their kids and others kids for that matter. Breeders they are called. They take SS Funds out under SSI. They are not the workers who have paid in.

Not having anything to do with these "gimme" programs, I'm not sure what the average haul is.

I do know that all of this entitlement spending, along with what the parasites in DC bleed us for, we won't be able to maintain it much longer.

Oddly enough, our wonderful government doesn't mind sharing info on the cost of social programs, but they don't like to talk about how much they
spend on Homeland Stupidity, err Security. Or about this either.

It is all a sick mess. And some do indeed haul it in. One family of Mexicans -first and second and now babies in third and fourth generation. NO ONe has WOrked. I have contacts in this area, they haul it in. Seriously, about 10K a month. Many social workers won't even work there. They are evil and yet are related to people in the system. I could not agree more that this needs to stop. The work ethic is over.

And the probability that you'll actually defend yourself with your gun is much less than the likelihood that you'll kill yourself or a family member. Owning a gun means you're statistically more likely to be murdered. Don't you see the hilarious irony in that.
You lying democrats are waging a war on reality.

hahah Hey tough guy. Maybe you never talked to a cop who didn't use his gun and got beat into a coma by a 15 year old. The one I know of still hasn't fully recovered. I guess all that training didn't help so much when the "trained professional union cop" came face to face with innocent little freckle faced jimmy. Well he wasn't innocent and he wasn't freckle faced but if Obama had a son he'd look just like that POS punk.

As I have said numerous times Social Security, Medicare, and Medicade have all been coming out of my wages for years, so when or if I retire, I am entitled to them. I've been paying for them long enough. I got my first paying job, complete with SS deductions when I was thirteen, I'm not sure how old I was when the other two started, only that I was still very young. I have never been without a job ever. Some of them were hard work for low pay, but it was better than sitting on my butt and not careing for my family. So anyone who thinks I am not entitled to those things when I can no longer work needs to come up with a way to return my money with fair intrest, or just shut the hell up. I'm not asking for any freebees just what I have been paying for for quite a few years.

I thought the main reason for having a gun was to keep Negroes from victimizing you. Your story doesn't seem to support this Teabagger belief, Mikey.

Then you must be a racist to think that way. I thought you were a fleabagger, not a teabagger. What's up with that?.

Racist humor at others expense would be something a wanna be god would embrace.
