SO WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE GEESE THAT LAY THE GOLDEN EGGS DO NOT PRODUCE THE GOLDEN EGGS ANYMORE? MOST OF THE GEESE ARE NOW RETIRED (NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION?. WHERE WILL THE GOV'T GET MORE GOLDEN EGGS IF THE NEED IS MORE?

WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THIS, YOU HARD WORKING PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES?

A Ford Dealer's Report Time to read this

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.

Government IS the problem. Government MUST end paying out more than minimum wage by say 20% so there will be an incentive for everyone to work and pay taxes instead of living off te taxpayers.

Maybe the problem is people no longer have any pride.
I know older folks who would easily qualify for foodstamps, free phones, and such. But like one of my elderly friends said, "I'll eat rice every night before I use an EBT card at the grocery store, they know me there." Bless her heart.

This is one of the biggest issues with Social Security. Not the people who, along with the companies they worked for, have paid in to for years and deserve to get back in their retirement years (which was the original intent of the system). Rather, it is the leeches who are defrauding the system with phony illnesses like this woman. They should be found and prosecuted. And forced to pay restitution too.

The way America ends The Entitlement Culture of the Official Victim Classes of the Demokrat Party of Amerika, is to destroy all EBT cards, no more cash payments, use the victims labor to build "Group Homes" from mud and sticks, for their Emotionally Retarded- Social Misfit Families to live in, Deliver the Gift Commodities from their Neighbors via Truck in Burlap sacks,(Just like we provide the Africans in Africa), and birth control is Voluntary Sterilization....Have 2 Chilren' and get booted from the Free Housing!.

Then....Build schools that teach history that is relevant and not Politically Correct just to make the un educable "feel" good about the despicable history of their peoples....

It will take 3 generations to improve the "folks" that spent 5 and 6 Generations on the Demokrat Plantations as dependent Sheeple....I say America starts the process right after "The Great Barry Soretto Depression" destroy our Economy.

The problem I have with that is turning in someone I know.

In my mind the last thing I want is a society where everyone is turning in the guy/gal next door. The government is giving the money away they need to keep track of who gets it and IF they should be getting it. After all only the governmnet knows who's getting the handouts and if they should be getting the free $$$.

Once case I know was a gal who followed one of her kids death payouts after the dad passed away. "Mom" had returned her kid to grandma for raising but as soon as the dad died "Mom" scooped up the kid and moved to an apartment, paid for by the death payout for the underage son.

This kind of stuff happens all the time but government doesn't check on anything. It seems like the government just likes to hand out as much money as they can, maybe to get votes or something naw they wouldn't do that would they.

I have to agree. It is not the responsibility of citizens to "narc" on each other but rather the responsibility of government to make sure they are giving the funds to those who truly have a need.

No problem, seemed like it wasn't of your nature.

Unfortunate I have to keep using a seattle ID to harass the jerk. Maybe SOME DAY seattle will be gone just left and this forum can return to the good old days with Zenbirds, a couple of local libs and conservatives knocking each other out. Without the constant meaningless garbage from seattle.

There is no question that I let Idiots get the best of me. I am beyond any attempt to be nice to even the most Ill among them. Their is nothing "Liberal" in anything about the defectives that post here, and any examination of the National political scene, reveals that the defectives here are representative of the New Age Fascists in general.

Narcissism RULES the Collectivist Left in America, and these Slothful Entitled Victims deserve no Political Correctness from any thinking citizen that is being abused by the Dependents support of Messiahs that feed their Hedonist needs.

These idiots think of Politics as some sort of game. They never got picked on the Playground of Life, so now they think that they won something when Mommy Bought the Election for them.

These Victim Class Defectives are the bottom of the shaat bucket, and are the cause of the destruction of the Republic because they do not know that America is not a Democracy, and that their vote can and should be taken away as easily as it was granted by recent generations that "felt" bad that the Idiots did not get to play American Citizen....in spite of the fact that they have never been RESPONSIBLE enough to be allowed Freedom and Liberty.

The Sociopath Slewsie epitomizes these idiots.

Her Plantation is the Asylum, but the other Collectivist Defectives Plantation is just as awful in that the Dregs of Humanity willfully stay on the Plantation for the Shiny Gifts that the White Demokrat Power Brokers bribe them with....But they get a vote.

Societal Suicide is in full speed ahead until "we the people" demand an end to giving the Dependents a say at the ballot box,about anything to do with our Government!

This "story" is straight B.S.. The type of fairy tale that Irish and company like to treat as fact. How can you have a discussion with people that treat fairy tales as fact?

Bozo Bob thinks that 47,000,000 million people on Food Stamps is just right.

Did you know that when Obama took office, there were 32,000,000 people on Food Stamps? That is a growth of almost 50% under our Marxist President. Aren't you proud of what he has done to US families?

Also, if you say that there is no fraud in the SNAP/Food Stamp program or the other numerous entitlement programs, you can show how schmart you are. Come on Bob, show us you are schmarter than the average bear.
