"Based on data, the cumulative spending on means-tested federal welfare programs, if converted into cash, would equal $167.65 per day per household living below the poverty level," writes the Senate Budget Committee. "By comparison, the median household income in 2011 of $50,054 equals $137.13 per day. Additionally, spending on federal welfare benefits, if converted into cash payments, equals enough to provide $30.60 per hour, 40 hours per week, to each household living below poverty. The median household hourly wage is $25.03. After accounting for federal taxes, the median hourly wage drops to between $21.50 and $23.45, depending on a household’s deductions and filing status. State and local taxes further reduce the median household’s hourly earnings. By contrast, welfare benefits are not taxed."
Hmmmm, Just take a look who is riding around in the BMW's,and Lexus. Who has a lot of money to spend at the mall.

The White House knows that if they cannot get the GOP to vote to increase rates, they will get crushed on the tax issue in the midterms. Their red state Democrats need political cover before they can vote to increase taxes. That cover is a Republican cave.

Barack Obama needs the Republicans to raise rates. If they do not get it before January 1, all of the Bush tax cuts will expire and the GOP will not permit any reduction without it being an across the board reduction. Moderate Democrats in the Senate and the few remaining blue dogs in the House will be in a very difficult position.

Exactly. So the Republicans must start acting like a second party and not compromise by raising taxes. Let the Democrats do the heavy lifting and take credit for what they do. If the Republicans cave than they are helping the Democrats again to do just as they please.
Again I say if the Republicans cave, this will prove that there is only one party disguised as a two party system. It is becoming obvious. Just look at the candidates the Republicans keep putting up to run for president. Even when the Republicans controlled Congress and the presidency the Democrats were still able to move their agenda forward. Go figure.

Thanks for sharing that video. It was wonderful and is now posted on my facebook page. And of course Donahue didn't learn anything. No amount of cold hard facts will sway a liberal.

OK, I swear I'm not looking for a fight....but

WTF do you mean by this? So when you see someone in a BMW or a Lexus or when you see someone shopping at the mall, you automatically think that person must be on the government teat?

Or is it just when you see a black person driving a BMW or Lexus or shopping at the mall that you think "the only way they can afford this is the government teat."

Or do you personally know these BMW, Lexus driving, mall shopping peeps and know that they are receiving government benefits?

I knew that I would get a rise out of you. Statistics show that there are more white people on welfare than black.I have a position that I am able to be in many different places in all times of the day. While most people are working I see these people suddenly coming out to drive around,shop, visit parks with their families when you would think most people would be at work. To be honest what I see mostly see are black people in super nice cars, wearing expensive clothes, buying nice things. I see whole subdivisions of $175,000 houses that were built to be section 8 with only black people living in them. I see single black women working with their kids in the Peach Program , that get all their medical care, food stamps and housing almost totally paid for by the government. They then have a man living with them, which is supposed to be illegal,also working putting money into the pot. I actually know several of them. They get away with it as the government seems to turn a blind eye towards them.
There are poor whites out there but most live in trailer parks and have no teeth. They talk with a heavy southern accent and always talk about how that tornado sounded like a big ol freight train. Many of them work deep in the woods making moonshine to support their starving families. A few, the smarter ones, know a little chemistry and open up a meth lab in the kitchen of their trailer. Others plant pot plants around their trailer to try to get enough money to buy cigarettes and beer with. All of them dress poorly and shop only at Walmart. I have no idea where they get the money to buy all those lotto tickets. Someday they may win and then they will be talking about me.
Do you think that we may have a problem with our society?

Ok, so really....I'm trying to understand how you have so much knowledge on this subject...

Let me get this straight...its because you are out and about when non-government teat sucking peeps should be working therefore if any black folk are out in their BMWs, Lexuses, or "wearing expensive clothes" then they must be living off the government teat.

(you never thought that maybe they have various hours at their jobs, work a different shift, have a flexible schedule, work from home or any number of reasons.) ok gotcha, out during the work day, getting together with family, spending money = sucking govt teat.

And you see these people coming out of subdivisions that are known to be built as section 8 houses. I didn't realize that there were whole subdivisions that were built just for section 8, I guess I have learned something new today.

And you are saying that poor whites would never try to live off of the government teat because if they did they'd have better teeth and live in something better than a trailer park. Is that what you are saying?

I'm trying to learn here.

I go to the mall all the time and I use to go in a Lexus, sometimes I'd go during the week when most people where at work because my schedule permitted. But, I'm not black so I guess that was the only area where I didn't match your description of someone on the government teat.

non-government teat sucking peeps should be working therefore if any
black folk are out in their BMWs, Lexuses, or "wearing expensive
clothes" then they must be living off the government teat.
(you
Yes, I think there are a lot of black people living off the government. I
think some are poor out of luck and need help but I see others that
just abuse the system. Yes, there are whole subdivisions out here that
were built to be section 8. They live in a better house than mine which I
payed for. Most get food stamps, welfare, medical care,and their
children are taken care of. For all I know they even get a free phone.
There are now 3 to 4 generations of welfare people on the rolls. I see
the cars they drive as I am not blind. How they get away with it I don't
know.
No I don't think all blacks are that way as many try to get out of this
plantation mentality and become successful in their own right. I think
that the government tries to keep these people down so they can
manipulate them into thinking and acting as they want them to. The white
Democrats have the black vote locked up and they know it. That is why
they want to keep them under their thumb. The Blacks have been taught to
hate the white man and that the man is holding them back. I disagree. I
think black people have just as good a chance in life as anybody else
in this country to make it on there own. They are holding themselves
back. There are so many laws protecting people from discrimination now
that there should be no more excuses. Is there discrimination? Yes.
People of all races, religions, and sexes run into discrimination from
time to time. I have been discriminated against and it hurt my feelings
but I got up off my butt and continued on with my life.
Do I run around worrying about what some one thinks of me or my skin
color? Am I so over sensitive that when I hear someone call a white man
white trash I become enraged? When I see white people doing something
wrong and someone accuses them of it I get defensive.? NO. Some white
people are lazy and are white trash. Why would I want to defend them?
If they are living off welfare and sitting around drinking beer all day
should I try to protect them? No. Everyday some black person on Topix is
calling me a racist. Do I care? NO.
I do think that there are way to many black people waiting around for
the government to take care of them. They will never be prosperous and
productive doing that.
Yes, I go to the mall and see gangs of black boys and girls just walking
around and killing time. Why aren't they in school? How can they ever
succeed without any education? Where are their parents? Many only have a
Mother. Too many kids born out of wedlock. The kids think it is cool to
drop out of school and don't want to be called a Uncle Tom. Why is it a
cool thing to be a failure in the black community? Maybe because the
government will take care of you? People without pride are a people that
are losing out on life and are lost.
This topic and what I have said is the same for white people that also
want to take it the easy way and let the government take care of them.
There is a difference in a person needing a helping hand and a person
that just takes advantage of a situation.
The truth is and it is being said right now by black people that they
voted Democratic and should be taken care of. That is so wrong but that
is how it is and has been. I can't make my thoughts much clearer. I do
not think I am better than black people nor do I hate them. Actually one
of my mentors when I was young was a very fine black man

eah, I knew that I opened up a septic tank when I wrote it. So what? You readers didn't even pick up on the parity that I used in post 134.
Thou are so quick to condemn and deny. I have written about problems that exist and all people want to do is keep their blinders on, ridicule and deny. Problems are not solved by ignoring them or throwing more money at them. They first have to be identified and then solved.
It is not just a white, black thing. It has to do with what is right and wrong. A correct way to live and a wrong way to live. What white people do affect black people and what black people do affect white people. This is a small world and we are all linked by being human beings. These problems are being manifested and used by political powers so that they can control us and the way we think. I am not trying to start a topic on race relations. It seems that when anyone says anything one way or the other the thin skinned opportunist comes out of the woodwork. They want to yell racist. That includes whites and blacks. You are being held down and used. If you wish to ignore it then continue to do so and nothing will ever change. As long as we bicker amongst ourselves and blame one another then you will never see the truth.
I owe my fellow man nothing more than common respect for him or her if that is the case. I should not take any responsibility of how you live your lives or the bad decisions that you make. Quit expecting me to do so. I am getting tired of paying for your mistakes and errors in judgement.
