This one is for all of you who love to get on here and exert your holier than thou stance that you are better than all the other "free loaders" that get some sort of assistance and how you do it ALL on your own without ANY help whatsoever.. Well lets just see about that.

IF you have EVER received ANY of the following for yourself or your children you are, in fact, the beneficiary of government handouts which makes you one of the leaches on society that you look down on..

FHA home loans
Federal Subsidized student loans
Pell Grants
Heating or Cooling Assistance
Veterans benefits (yes they were earned, but still falls into the category)
WIC
Social Security
Social Security Disability
Medicaid
Medicare
Food Stamps
TANF (the name for welfare "checks")
Child day care assistance
Unemployment benefits
Earned Income Tax Credit (IF you get this then you aren't actually PAYING any federal taxes and lose all right to bitch about what benefits ANYONE receives)

Yep, that's right if you have ever been the beneficiary of ANY of these programs, YOU are part of the "lower" class of people you so disdainfully look down upon. So step off your high horses before someone comes along and knocks you off.

*To those who are receiving assistance, please know that I am in no way bashing people who need these programs. I am merely making a point for those who do bash the less fortunate among us.

I would like to add to your list and it is "Corporate Welfare".'Corporate Welfare' Costs Taxpayers Almost $100 Billion in FY 2012, Cato Report Finds.

Link Below.....

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/corporate-wel...

'Fiscal Cliff' Deal Includes 'NASCAR Tax Credit'...

The cost of the NASCAR tax credit to taxpayers has been estimated at some $40 million--over and above any tax incentives provided by state and local authorities.

Link Below.....

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/201...

And you have those whiners that go after the small fish when the Shark is in their face. Can You Say Hypocrite? The Fools have been Fooled. What uneducated jokesters you are. You're most likely receiving welfare or have in the past and are too stupid to figure it out. Go and educate yourself, and cease making the informed citizens of Southwest Virginia resemble your ignorance. What a shame. H E L L O ???

I get Social Security. I paid the government all of my working life and they "saved" it to give it back to me in retirement. If I could have saved the money myself rather than giving it to the government, I would receive several times the amount I get from Social Security on the investment income alone. That makes it NOT a government handout but a forced savings at a very low interest rate. The same goes for Medicare.

Old Old Timer,The problem with social Security is that anyone and everyone gets it when they turn 65. My grandmother and her friend both get it, and they have NEVER worked a day in their lives. All my grannys friend does is watch people out her window and play crossword puzzles. She gets 700/month, just taking up space. She has several children, the burden of supporting her should fall on them.

I agree. I was pointing out that not everyone that gets social security is taking a handout from the government.

If you work or are truly disabled I say fine. But if you are just lazy or have babied to death your whole life get over it. Get a job and pay into SS and Medicare, then you can reap the "benefits" of it. However you have to think just how easy it is to NEVER pay into anything and still live high on the hog, our young people have no clue what the "American Dream" was, now we just have the "American Give away"

I doubt you would have saved it and if you had you would have lost it in the stock market. I'll bet you drew out the first year what you paid in to Social Security your whole working life. Uncle has fulfilled his promise to you. You probably would have spent the money on women and liquor anyway. Quit crying

You are full of BS. You are lying and you know it. If you have never worked you don't draw SS. You have to have worked at least 10 qtrs to get a partial payment. Don't piss on my leg and tell me it raining. She may be drawing from her dead husband. If you are going to lie at least make it believeable. One who knows better.

I might steal a lot of names but I would be ashamed to post under that one. You really have a dirty mouth. Your momma should wash it out with soap after what you are known to be sucking.

Even after paying SS, I saved enough to retire debt free at 55 ten years ago. I will never collect enough from SS to offset what I could have earned with the money I paid to SS.

That's true SS is kind of a rip off because the government has used money from SS over the years and drained the system to support welfare reaching the problem today where the younger generations will never live to retire due to dead beats. People need to understand Government assistance should be used as a last resort not first priority. I'd be highly embarrassed to be on food stamps or live in those trashy government assisted houses

You are probably someone that worked hard, had a setback now and then, but perservered and came out okay in the end. You are to be commended for that. That is how America is supposed to work. I am a similar case. But even though there are a few deadbeats that scam the system I still think we need safety nets for people in our country, the majority of which need it temporarily or through a misfortune most of us have not had to deal with.
This is how I see it. There are all kinds of welfare. What really bothers me more and more is how the powerful entities....GM, Wallstreet, Energy Producers, Big Pharma and their non-negotiable pricing, and on and on, seem to be invisible culprits to the common folk...but everyone wants to worry about someone on food stamps buying "name brand" products at Food City. Hell, at least that money was spent in town and maybe helped the cashier make a car payment.
In my opinion (and it's just my opinion)it is a convenient "strawman" that the big money in this country has perpetuated. Those of us who are NOT wealthy have the power of the vote. That is all we have. There is not going to be an armed revolution, despite the fantasies of the gun lovers. When the common folk, like us, begin to realize that the vast majority of "welfare" is not really going to that single mom in the trailer park with the deadbeat husband...but instead is going to billions in subsidies for huge corporations, huge defense contractors and even companies that offshore their profits to avoid taxation, then maybe all of us will realize how powerful our votes can be.
True Americans do not begrudge those less fortunate. The people that post here do not either. I just think we have been sold a bill of goods that continually blames the poor, the victims, and...yes....sometimes the lazy or the addicted...for sinking our economy. There are statistics (which I do not have exactly to the penny) that show how dollars given to foodstamps for instance, end up producing well over a dollar in monetary activity in the supply chain. I would much rather see my tax dollars go towards that than some Republican or Democrat pork project.
