Why do you pretend to know so such much about me?
Right down to my bony (but manicured) fingers?
And you seem to know where I live too?
Your mental powers are surely supreme.(run for office?)
BUT... I was arguing that your sanitized version of slavery misses many points.
AND... that your imagined modern-day slave owner...
Is doing everything possible to lift the yoke of slavery from the huddled masses.
OR... do you think they are doing too little?
UTLT, I think that...
You are sitting there in your boring room
It's just another rainy Monday afternoon
You're wasting my time
You've got nothing to do
You're hanging around
You're waiting for me
But nothing ever happens and you wonder.

To amend a famous quote by Lincoln:

“Whenever I hear anyone arguing for GOVERNMENT slavery OR TYRANNY, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”

You argue that the government is doing everything possible to lift the yoke of slavery, I would argue this:

“You can't hold a man down without staying down with him.”- Booker T. Washington

What I hear you saying is that you believe...
that government is, and has been...
consciously attempting to enslave the populace ?

What I hear you saying is that you believe...
That all the social safety-net programs...
and the entire government educational effort...
are all a part of a subtle and devious plan...
designed to create greater dependency and more state control?

Am I hearing you correctly?

Hello UTLT. I do not think that there is an overt gov program of enslavement. There is no need. Millions will gladly accept the benefits bestowed by the gov. and the donated services from many non profits and will do so happily. It seems that the American poor, which is the wealthiest of the Worlds poor only gets angry when the benefits arent occasionally increased. An extreme example can be found on Youtube. My favorite is the Obama phone lady. With millions of non-functioning adults on the dole, an ambitious politician would be hard pressed not to pander to such a crowd. And they will pay back the largesse with votes. Someday there may be a tipping point when takers outpace payers and that will be a very rude wake up to some and a nightmare to others. I hope not to see it.

Please resign your Council Seat and Historical Society Directorship. And then move back to California. Until then, please shut up.

That is very uncalifornia thinking and I agree on all counts. In fact 51% of oneida county residents received some form of public assistance last year.

You seem to be very smart so explain to me what the original intent of the "safety net" programs versus what they have evolved into? After you do that, look at the voting patterns of those who are in fact dependent on the state for their food, housing, health insurance etc... Do you see a pattern? Increase spending on "safety net" programs = more votes. Get more people hooked on the free stuff and they will ALWAYS vote for whoever gives them MORE FREE STUFF.

UTLT, there is no way to starve in this country, there is no way to fail in this country, there is no floor to hit if you miss the bar and fall off the trapeze...there is always a safety net waiting to catch you. Eventually, you stop trying to reach for the bar on the trapeze and just lie in the net. Nobody minds paying for a temporary safety net because events do happen out of your control. Problem is now we have a PERMANENT safety net that totally envelopes generations of people making stupid decisions on an everyday basis...and the government MUST steal more from the 53% who pay taxes to keep the enslaved from rioting. Now, what happens if you start to run out of folks to enslave? You grant citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants and raise the minimum wage.

Obviously you are in agreement with Mr Romney's 47% comment.

But as to the question posed in #84 above...
is that a "YES" ???

The question is...
Yes or No...
The social safety-net and educational systems...
are specifically designed to enslave the masses?

Sorry, didn't mean to overwhelm you with reason. I do not think the original safety-net programs were "specifically designed" to enslave the masses. I also do not believe the Dept of Education was created or specifically designed to enslave the masses. I KNOW however that they have both been bastardized and now absolutely accomplish the federal governments need to enslave the masses.

So... the answer is YES!

Okay... now we can move forward!
Do you believe that the teachers and administrators...
of the Little Falls City School District... are aware of this?

Are they KNOWINGLY participating in the enslavement...
OR... is it above their pay grade?

Alternately...
Who has been 'read in' to the actual goals of the federal government?

You mean the question about poor folks...
About less advantaged people generally voting democrat?
Is that the question you want me to answer?

YES... poor people vote Democrat.
It makes sense to me.
The Republicans have been against...
almost every program which doesn't favor the rich... forever!

YES... the poor, women, and minorities vote Democrat.
YES... I agree!

Have the Democrats been in the poor's corner for a long time...
YES...

Have the Republicans been the rich folks friend...
YES...

I agree... 100%

Slavery is when you work all day and someone else gets all the fruits of your labor.

Not having to work at all and being able to enjoy the fruits of the labors of others sure isn't slavery. It's the exact opposite, in fact.

If you're really trying to enslave people, then you've got to put them to work for you. You can't enslave people by giving them things.

Way I see it, it's the working classes, non the non-working folks, who are getting enslaved around here. Pretty soon they're going to have nothing to lose but their chains.

You are a retired government worker. You have spent your entire life feeding at the public trough like a pig. How DARE you mock anyone else for being on the dole when you spent your entire life on the dole, and you are still on the dole now! The people you are making fun of work hard for a living, and sometimes they need to get assistance when their employer lays them off. The economy here sucks. You are a heartless and brainless prick.

Thank God that wasn't directed at me!

Sometimes I've been called a prick.
Other times... brainless.(never heartless)
But never both... together at the same time!
OUCH!(that has got to hurt... brainless, heartless prick)

If the 2nd ward has to reelect another term because no one runs then shame on the dems and reps. This guy mocks and taunts people while being a member of city government . Look we have to make sure he does not get back on this council.
UTLT is annoying

UTLT was voted LF's most annoying poster http://www.topix.com/forum/city/little-falls-...

This is just 1 of the reasons why. UTLT has a knack of expressing her annoying opinions and then people on topix begin to converse with UTLT. Many times UTLT changes the entire reason for the thread and many times people begin conversing about how annoying UTLT is. There are more threads and more polls all expressing what a nuisance UTLT. UTLT is best off ignored.

In this case UTLT has pointed out that OUR government isn't oppressing us.
Is it that point of view which you find annoying?

The reason for this thread?
A name-shifter... much like you...
voiced an anxiety about how people on assistance spend their money.
And we've stayed pretty close to that for 100 posts.
YOU are now trying to make this about ME?

OOPS!
