Has anyone heard that they plan to give out free money again like they did for school clothes for Christmas gifts. Are you fuckin kidding me! I go to work every god damn day and struggle to pay my bills and do a modest christmas and they are going to hand people money to buy gifts that do nothing but live off the system. This is just crazy! This happens and I am quiting my job and goin on welfare.

IF welfare recipients do get extra $$ used to buy Christmas gifts for their kids, then Mr. President, I need a bail-out because of your stupidity.

It appears that the government thinks it is OK that those of us receiving Social Security Retirement checks do NOT get a cost of living raise like we have for the past 34 years -but- it is OK to find the money to give to those on Welfare.

This is just another example of what government feels towards the older ciziten that has worked all their lives and have EARNED every penny of their SS Retirement Benefits - Welfare receipants just hold their hands out and our Government gives them whatever they want (not need).

The USA is headed for just being another Socialistic County - get use to it.

I agree with shocked. I can't even believe this crap. Anyone read the Utica OD last week when they wrote how much cash and food stamps a family of 5 gets on welfare? I work everyday and they are making more money then I am a month for staying home and doing nothing and that's just the cash that they get of rent and what ever that's not counting what they get in food stamps... Maybe Obama should start taking care of the people that help themselves and not the non working lazy that don't want to help themsevels kind of people.....

What I read in the Aug. 12 Albany newspaper was that some people getting social services or food stamps would be getting back to school money as a result of a charitable gift to the State of NY by George Soros and the Open Society Institute. The State decides who qualifies for the extra money which is given in the form of a grant.

Folks on welfare aren't going to question how they came by the money and there is no quarantee it will be used for school supplies or clothes as was intended.

Get your butt off your shoulders about quitting work and going on welfare. You aren't paying for it!! The person, George Soros, who gave the money to the State, took it out of his pocket. He is a philanthropist which is a big word that basically means "someone who believes in using his money to benefit others".

One thing to clear up: blacks don't always ask for all the sympathy and empathy they receive. This is part of the liberal and politically correct way of thinking that makes the assumptive assertion that nobody wants to be down-and-out and poor, that if somebody is poor they must need help, assistance and teaching so they can rise above their poverty stricken lifestyles. The reality is that people are ultimately responsible for themselves and how they choose to live their lives. If you ask them, a lot of blacks don't want to be educated, have careers, or give something back to their communities or their country. The message is displayed in their music, their leaders and their culture - they would rather be hustlers, pimps and gangsters, slang drugs, beat people up, spend half their lives in prison and otherwise be a problem race. Whites always try to step in and fix things for blacks, not so much for black people's sake, but because the african american race is continually a burden and a threat to whites as long as it continues to suffer. I personally wish they would all move back to Africa and grow their own food and create their little ghetto colonies there.

I also think this entire generation (not just blacks) has become too dependent on welfare and free handouts, and we are starting to forget the meaning and value of hardwork and the rewards which are reaped from taking the helm of your life instead of always expecting someone else to do things and make decisions for you. But I don't know if welfare is the biggest evil, because welfare is like tossing somebody a bone, and if people are getting by on a bone, they don't have much. Most people have enough trouble getting by on their bone in the first place, so I don't see why tossing them a few bits of bone at Christmas time is really so bad. But, yeah, for working class and middle class people who have a bone with a little bit of meat and flesh on it, it can seem like an affront to see people get almost just as much for free. Especially when you guys have to work so hard at jobs that offer very little in the way of respect or exotic-ness.

actually the money that was given to those that received foodstamps in general was only made possible because of a DONATION... as far as another amount going out this is TRUE BUT it is only because not all of the people got the money that should have the first time...

you idiots, its always been like this, stop bitching. The rich dont give a sit, they have more than they need and dont mind throwing a bone to the lazy poor. It makes them feel good, and not so guilty about their filthy richness. The poor always got something for nothing. The middle class always got the middle finger. Dont forget it , the middle class are now finally complaining because they are now feeling the pain because their credit cards are maxed ,they cant put their houses up anymore, their maxed and stock market and taxes are upside down. Should have complained when Ronnie Regan shoved it in.

to "guido" and "you were mis-informed", actually you are both wrong and shame on you for not telling the whole truth, another example of liberals distorting the truth to benefit themselves.as you know george soros did donate money for the back to school supply free for all and if you know that much then you have to know that george soros only donated half of the money. so where did the other half come from ? governor patterson through the use of the stimulus funds new york state recieved from the president obama.so yes the taxpaers did fund half of the money.

Move back to Africa? What about all of us that were born and raised here in the USA. I don't want to live in Africa.

To Landlord. Thanks for adding some clarification to my comment about George Soros. You are right and it's nice to know that someone else does some research on an issue instead of just setting up a whine. By the way, I'm far from being a liberal despite being born and raised in Utica.

YES WE ARE PAYING FOR IT ! GET THE STORY STRAIGHT !

Soros and his group donated 35 million dollars to this cause, however, ALL TAXPAYERS NATIONWIDE PAID ADDED OVER 100 MILLION --- YES, 100 MILLION TO THAT THROUGH TAXPAYER-PROVIDED STIMULUS PACKAGE MONEY !

All taxpayers, nationwide "contributed" to this flat panel HD TV Audio / Video giveaway !

WE HAVE THE ABSOLUTE DUMBEST GOVERNOR IN THE FIFTY STATES (Palin resigned).

----------

Why didn't these "bones" get tossed my childrens' ways when I went through 3 different bouts of unemployment back in the early 80's during the holiday season ???

My kids saw next to nothing under the Christmas tree and they all knew why ---- Dad did not have a job, but he is still paying for the house, paying all the bills and keeping food on the table ---- none of which came from the "government" / taxpayers.

Hmmmmmm, must be Dad really, really wanted to make sure that the priorities were taken care of first, and when Christmas presents were discussed, well, "We have to eat and stay warm, kids ..."

Today ? Hey --- gimme, gimme, gimme.

You want gimme ??? Come on over to my place and split wood, tear off shingles, put on a new roof, and then we'll see what's left in the vegetable garden.

For your "efforts" I will send you home with some vegetables, a handshake and a thank you.

NO, I AM NOT GOING TO SEND YOU HOME WITH A NEW HD FLAT PANEL SCREEN TV ! GFY !!!

What's the matter, isn't food and a thank you good enough for your lazy ass effots ??? Oh, by the way ---- I'm fifty eight years old and I'll work circles around you welfare rats !
