So my brother is on unemployment right now and he has to pay taxes on it, which he is. He brought up a good point, people on welfare don't have to pay ANY tax, is that right?

Yes thats correct. They'd just end up with more of our money anyway if they did.

I have been on public assistance all my life. I enjoy living off of the taxpayers. Keep working you saps. I want more free money from you.

No contest here. Unemployment just pays you cash. You might be able to get food stamps with it if it's a low enough weekly amount.
Welfare gives you food stamps, rent paid, health care, rides in taxi's, small cash amounts, and all sorts of other benefits.

Or he could go and get a job, and earn his money. Sure he will still have to pay taxes, but might sleep better.

Nobody under any circumstances ever should be jealous of people on welfare, taxes or not.

I'm not sure ppl are jealous of them, I tend to think they're more pissed that they have to support them fully and their 10 illegitimate kids.

Serious question - is there a time limit for individuals on welfare in NY - in other words - can one live on welfare indefinitley.I honestly don't (thankfully) know the answer to that.

Under the crime of burglary, 30.4% of arrested are Black and 67.8% are White. The Black burglary rate 30.4 over 13, divided by the White burglary rate of 67.8 over 85, gives a figure of 2.93.

If these arrest records accurately record the commission of burglaries, that means that Blacks commit burglary at almost 3 times the rate of Whites.

Using the same methodology, the figures other crimes can also be broken down:

Weapons violations are committed by Blacks at nearly 5 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are caught receiving or buying stolen property at nearly 5 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are involved in prostitution at almost 4 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are arrested for drug crimes at over 4 times the rate for Whites;

Blacks are more than three times as likely as Whites to be caught at forgery, counterfeiting, and fraud, and almost three times as likely to be caught at embezzlement;

Blacks are more than 3 times as likely to be thieves as Whites;

Blacks are more than 4 times as likely to commit assault as Whites;

Blacks are almost 4.5 times as likely to steal a motor vehicle;

Blacks are more than 5 times as likely to commit forcible rape as Whites;

Blacks are over 8 times as likely to commit murder as Whites;

Blacks are more than 10 times as likely to commit robbery as Whites;

Nearly 25% of all Black males between the ages of 20 and 29 are in jail or on probation - this does not include those wanted or awaiting trial;

Yes there is a time limit. 5 yrs whether consecutive or over a time period. If needed beyond that there is "safety net" which is a 6 month period" for example, a family og 2 gets $425/month cash which is supposed to cover rent, gas/electric & personal items $367 in foodstamps ( about $52 a week for groceries) & they are sent to " job ready" classes as soon as they apply for assistance.if they fail to attend they can be denied benefits

hmmmm....I've been getting food stamps since 2008 since none of my jobs have paid enough for me to pay all my bills. I guess people shouldn't speak about things they know nothing about. Food stamps are not just for those who sit on their ass and don't work...because I've been working since before my daughter was born...and I did what I needed to do. I pay taxes...so I should be able to get the help if I need it and I don't feel bad about it.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Why don't you just work more hours or find a better job instead of ripping off the tax payer. Big deal you pay taxes, if you're collecting food stamps, you aren't paying very much in taxes i guarantee you that.

You should be ahsamed of yourself.

MAKING YOUR BLACK WORK.

BLACKs are very, very averse to work of any kind. The BLACK's most prominent anatomical feature, after all, its oversized buttocks, which have evolved to make it more comfortable for your BLACK to sit around all day doing nothing for its entire life. BLACKs are often good runners, too, to enable them to sprint quickly in the opposite direction if they see work heading their way. The solution to this is to *dupe* your BLACK into working. After installation, encourage it towards the field with blows of a wooden club, fence post, baseball bat, etc., and then tell it that all that cot belongs to a white man, who won't be back until tomorrow. Your BLACK will then frantically compete with the other field BLACK to steal as much of that cot as it can before the white man returns. At the end of the day, return your BLACK to its cage and laugh at its stupidity.
