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.
Haven't you been watching the news or paid attention for the last 11 months since Obama took over? It's all about "redistibution of wealth". I hope the idiots that voted for the mron in office get their "change" they wanted and "hope" for the best.

Welfare should be for the working class that can't make ends meet even though they are TRYING, not sitting home waiting for a check or selling dope and still waiting for the check.

IF YOU DON'T WORK THEN YOU DON'T GET THE HELP. CUT OFF WELFARE TO THESE BUMS!!!!!PERIOD. Call me a redneck, hillbilly or whatever, but if you don't work for it or earn it then you sure as hell don't deserve it.

Wow ! What a freakin revelation !
See the Mailman up above ---- it fits right in with what we are really talking about. With regards to food stamps, welfare $ and all other handouts that we pay for, there are way, way, WAY too many scammers.
We need a benefits system that weeds these low-lifes out. It certainly hasn't happened thus far ...
Wanna buy an X box ???
I happen to own a xbox thank you that we bought with hard earned cash. Maybe you are hiding behind all this cause you are a receipient. I dont know and honestly dont care. You obviously have more issues than this. I am a tax payer and I think many abuse the system but not all. Have a heart some go through hard times and get back up stop judging others. Your a bitter bitter person!!!!

Personally I could care less what your educational background is but when you post in a public forum, the content of your posts goes toward your credibility as the person behind the text and the views you convey. By stating you earned a Masters Degree earlier and then continually make simple grammatical errors makes you not very believable.

Just so you know, there(their they're) is no need to lie.

It is interesting you should mention buying an xbox. I knew a woman who has 6 kids and was about to lose a tv she leased. I don't remember if she received any public services, but she works 3 jobs. The lease agreement she signed was beyond unconscionable and gave the term a whole new meaning. The store's attorney asked why she bought a tv she could not afford. She gave a good answer: when the kids are done with school and their homework, they have nothing to entertain themselves with. She added that it was bad enough for her kids to be ridiculed about being on the low end of the financial totem pole, at least this way they can keep up on school yard conversations about news and popular shows their peers watch. Then she asked if they would rather her kids roam the streets looking for trouble.

Well played my fried but these people don't see it the way we see it. They think the world is owed to them and deserve all those hand outs b/c they were less "fortunate". Funny how they always have an excuse like I'm a single mother and the daddy don't help out. Is that our fault that you chose the wrong man? Why should we have to pay for your 1 night of fun? It's like the people who went to college and got good jobs are being punished for the ones who slacked and make minimum wage at McDonald's. You people need to live within your means. A cell phone, ugg boots, timberlands, northface jacket, weaves, fake nails and newports are not vital to you surviving. Pay your own rent, nimo and health care. I'm sick of the state goiwng into my pockets to help you scum live like kings
All I have to say is yah are a bunch of HATERS! HA HA! Don't hate on me becuase i'm getting FREE MONEY! LOL. And yup you're right it's not you're fault my baby daddy ain't around, it's his fault, i gave him 8 years of my life, and it didn't work out, HAH HAH to you and everyone else that has to put food on my table for me and my kids, we thank Obama very much, you're damn skippy i'll be voting for him next term. Shit, i'm out of cigarettes, i better go get some more! Can't wait to go out this weekend either, cuz since i get food stamps i'm going out this weekend with the money i'll save. You wana be all upset, go ahead, yah are stressing urselves out over some shit you can't control.

Before I retired, I worked in a Professional position with College Graduates. You would be surprised how many of these College Graduates would send out inter-office Email messages and NOT using correct English, and their spelling was horrific. Very few of them knew the difference between "there/their", "two/to/too", and many other simple words we all learned when we were in 3rd Grade.

Guess that means their intellect is below 3rd grade, eh? Wonder how that deteriorates from a master's degree...

So how do you justify this country being built and sustained by slave labor and at the end of chattel slavery, the country was NOT taken out of the hands of Europeans who had NOT worked for it? Surely, the people who took it did NOT work for it. It's always interesting that what can be applied to certain people and/or situation cannot be uniformly applied to another people and/or situation.

The people who are given these small stimulus checks are among the poorest in this nation. How far do you really think the money goes? I mean, if someone had 3 children and were given $600 ($200 apiece) to help offset school expenses are they making them rich? We all know that with the rising cost of clothing and undergarments, not to mention the supply list a mile long, that it doesnt go far. Do you get joy from the thought of others lacking? Perhaps it is you who need a reality check not even considering that your perception is skewed? It must make you feel better and/or greater than another to assume that people dont work because they just don't want to when there are multiple factors that create that sitation. I can see it from another angle still and say, it is the poorest among us that do the most work, afterall, they are working 8 hrs a day at wages that "your kind" would scoff at essentially being the workhorse that under the system of capitalism MUST be EXPLOITED so that those that own the corporations can maximize their benefit. Do you know anyone that thinks making $10 an hr is a good job? Stop being so bitter and get out of your box and over yourself. Don't worry so much, these people are NOT getting rich at your expense. Also keep in mind that those stimulus monies were given to people who just received food stamps to help offset food expenses. Not everyone who got and/or gets the stimulus received full monetary benefits from the Department of Social Services.

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.
Personally, I think Europeans should move back to their respective lands that they left of their own accord to come take the land of the natives. Afrikans in Amerika should also go back to their respective CONTINENT. Only the misinformed Afrikan in Amerika doesnt want to go back to their land, the greatest on the face of the earth which has the most abundant resources, but then wait, EUROPEANS are in their land too!!!! Europeans STOLE it like they STOLE what is now called Amerika by the colonizers. When you think about it, EUROPEANS STOLE EVERYTHING, INCLUDING THE AFRIKANS WHO BUILT AND NOW LIVE IN THE STOLEN LAND CALLED AMERIKA!!!!Hmmmmm....AFRIKA IS NOT in its current conditions because of the natives of th continent, it faces the issues it does because of the GREED OF THE EUROPEAN. THEY STILL ARE KEEPING THE NATIVES OF THE LAND IN DEPLORABLE CONDTIONS TO SUSTAIN THE GREED OF EUROPEANS EVERYWHERE. The European ALWAYS wants more and more, they never get enough. Have you EVER wondered why Afrika has MOST of the worlds resources yet the people it belongs to, the black peoples of the world, do NOT benefit from its resources? Answer yourself honestly and know that before European invasion, the Afrikan did NOT suffer from problems of homelessness, fatherless families, and extreme poverty. There was and still is no welfare system in Afrika, and we did not have communities of peoples on drugs either. Why are all these issues ONLY AFTER contact with Europeans. Perhaps you should be more careful of the things you say speaking without knowledge and/or truth. The ONLY ones that will suffer in the Afrikans going back to their own land is the Europeans, Europeans have ALWAYS NEEDED AFRIKANS MORE THAN AFRIKANS EVER NEEDED AND/OR WANTED TO BE AND LIVE ALONGSIDE EUROPEANS. Never forget that it was your father, grandfather, great grandfather and etc that have participated in the structuring of the social ills Afrikans still face. Your fathers captured AFrikans against their will and brought them to a land where they were treated worst than animals. Your FATHERS fought to sustain and create a system where AFrikans have been systematically discriminated against to this very day whether indirectly or directly.
Im not a segregationalist, as that was a system imposed upon blacks without their own consent, and Im not a integrationalist, as that is a failed social experiment that has only contributed to the breakdown of the Afrikan community in Amerika, but you can call me a seperatist as that indicates choice and can only promote the healing of the AFrikan Community from the blatant racism that Afrikans have been subjected to in an attempt to STEAL the dignity, life, liberty, and propety from the AFrikan worldwide!

As your arrogance pointed out, I did generlaize the group receiving the stimulus and that there are exceptions to the rule. I don't know where you get off thinking I'm in a box or high on myself because that is the farthest from the truth. By the way what is "my kind" which you stated above, just curious. I am an American, a Patriot, and have held steady employment since the age of 14. I put myself through college, and I currently hold a position in a professional field for the last 23 years. You, sir/madam, appear to suffer from anal-cranial inversion. I agree that SOME people getting the stimulus need it and/or deserve it, however they certainly are the minority.

Right now, anyone that does have a job making $10/hr is greatful and appreciative, I'm sure. Yes that is low pay and diffucult to survive on, which is my point about helping the working person make ends meet instead of welfare being a lifestyle.
