Name off all the people you know that receive government assistance. These people need exposed and humiliated to the point that they are ashamed to be seen in public. I'm sure they will never be so ashamed they go get a job and support themselves.

Why should anyone be ashamed of getting assistance? I mean I guess there are people out there that abuse it. But not everyone is. You talk about getting a job and supporting yourself. Well just incase you have your head up your ass, which obviously you do, there isn't exactly a plethora of qualify jobs around here that people could easily support a family on. Hell most places that are hiring either won't give you full time employment, or if they somehow do they screw you out of any benefits. I know to some people that doesn't matter much, but to people with medical problems good insurance coverage is worth more then they could ever make around here. There are tons of good reasons for people to be getting assistance. And for you to come here and try to hurt others because they get some form of help from the government is just very low.

Probably 90% of the people in Boone County on are some form of public assistance.

It's amazing what some people in Appalachia will do to avoid working. I'm not against helping people down on their luck or the legitimately disabled, but the crap some people pull is pathetic.

Quality jobs do not abound, I agree. However, I would shovel dog shi+ to make a living for my family. Your answer is part of the problem. That job isn't good enough, so I'll let others support me and my family. And I'm speaking of ABLE BODIED INDIVIDUALS WHO COULD WORK, BUT WILL NOT! And you shouldn't have kids if you don't have the means to support them. SLUTS, KEEP YOUR LEGS CLOSED. MEN, KEEP IT ZIPPED!

I don't disagree with most of what you have said. Those without medical problems should get out there and work for what they get. But what most people on the system see is that getting off the system is the hardest part. Hell the government makes it that way. Get a job and make a little money for your family and they just take it out of what you would have gotten for staying home and collecting. There isn't any incentive to work. Most people would live with less if they tried to get off assistance then they would just staying on it. I mean you add up HUD, stamps, and a medical card and you won't be able to find any job that would pay that much. So if you can't get anymore then what you would get anyways, then why take on the stress of a job. Then you have people with medical issues. I fall into this category. Since I don't have a college education I can't find a job that would carry medical benefits for me. And without the medical coverage I couldn't even begin to afford my medications that I am required to have everyday. So any time I get a job I have to turn it then they cut me off my medical and I

I took the population of Boone County.(24,629) and multiplied by 90 percent = 22,166 . It seems a bit labor intensive to try and write all those names down . Besides , I have to work to get everybody free cell phones .

So let me ask you this, if someone offered to pay your mortgage, buy you a few hundred bucks in food each month, and pay a few thousand dollars in monthly medical bills? Or you could work a minimum wage job where you get no insurance and can't afford the medication you need to have to even begin to function, yet alone a car to get to work in, which would you do??? You can't honestly tell me the second choice is what you would pick because you can't logically do it. No person in their right mind is going to leave safety and security for the chance to bust ass making virtually no money and still be unable to afford the basic necessities.
Be as ignorant and pissed if you want, but it won't change the reality of people's situations. If the government really wanted to solve the problem they would create mass amounts of jobs that provide a decent living for those that can't get that on their own. Otherwise be prepared to have people looking with their hands out for help.

So someone offered to do that for them? I sure didn't. It's lovely that others are so freehearted with my money.

Yea your government offered to do that for them. What would you expect them to do toss people out in the cold and watch them die? I find it so funny that people bitch about welfare, but God forbid someone mention the billions and billions of dollars we have spent on the military. I kinda see the math like this. Take all the money we have spent in the Middle East fighting needless wars, subtract what it would take us to restabilize our country by creating jobs and providing for those truly unable to provide for themselves and I'm fairly sure we would have plenty left over. Welfare recipients are the least of this countries problems. If you want to know what our real problem is its the top percentage of the wealthy hoarding more and more while we make do with less and less.

I really wish those who complain about military and war spending could live with the consequences of no military without it affecting me. I'd love to watch them beg to have it back the way it was.

Anytime I trade you. What has the wars in the Middle East done for me?? Answer, nothing that's what. Ill tell you what they have done. They have allowed the oil industry to gauge prices to all new highs while making record profits all during the countries worst economic times in years. Other than that I don't see anything being accomplished by pounding billions upon billions of dollars into sand nations half the world away. It's nice that we feel responsible for policing the world. But why we should pay out billions taking care of the rest of the world, then bitch about people here at home not being able to provide basic needs for their families is just crazy. Our country is falling apart while big money billion airs continue to make fat cash off the hard works of the masses. We have more than enough resources in America for everyone to prosper, but not if the top 20% sit on 80% of those resources. So I say get your priorities straight. The military is for the defense of our nation, something that hasn't been done since WWII. To use it for anything else is just like using it to benefit those in power and their personal vendettas.

Hell yea. Give anyone on welfare a job they can do. I got no problem with that. But right now they won't even begin to do that. You work and they won't give you shit. So you can't do any better then you can sitting at home and collecting.

Anyone that hasn't ever lost a job, been injured or gotten sick should probably be glad for that. After all, you're only one car accident away from mental retardation. Then again, maybe not even that far.

Why pick on the poorest of our population when we all know the issue resides at the top, not the bottom? You're bitching 90 percent of the time about one percent of the problem. There will always be abusers, but your anger is truly misguided, and the super-rich like it that way.

Six percent of our budget goes to the non-working poor. Assuming some of them have actual problems, you are honestly accomplishing nothing if you eliminate all of them.

If the US can give billions of dollars in aid to other Countries, whats wrong with helping its own? This Country is falling apart right before your eyes. Everyone will soon be dependent on the government. Everyone will soon be required to do something according to their qualifications. If you have no qualifications you will be placed at construction jobs such as ditch diggers, coal miners, state road crews and such, out in the hot sun or cold busting your butt. Educated people will have office jobs inside with air conditioning in summer, heat in winter. Similar to the cast system. So you better get some education if you want a comfortable job. The way of life in America is about to change. The Government will take care of you. Their will soon be enough votes to implement the changes that the majority want. Everyone doing their part is what its going to take to save the Country will be the slogan.

Here's the thing. I don't care about those people who leech off my taxes, nor do I care for those in other nations or research on the impact on various animals and other total wastes of money. Idiots on here are the same as those in our capital that justify everything by statements like "well if we can do this why can't we do this too" or "what you don't want to help people". Your pious indignation is sickening.

Hope you become disabled and no one takes care of you. Then lets see what your opinion is.
