This website gives a good definition.

It doesn't include Wall Street type bailouts due to the age of this article. I would think that such programs should also be deemed entitlement. Based on the "too big to fail" would mean the government will "entitle" these companies, in a type of socialism for corporate losses.

Dang! And McCaskill is easy to beat. Maybe his slipping like that was an inside conspiracy or something. Or, better yet, it was probably a zionist conspiracy considering the influence of the zionits lobby around McCaskill.
I'm sure McCaskill loves him as the opposition, but she still might not beat him. Apparently MO is going Republican, so this moron will probably win. People have to wonder though, how can someone be that stupid and get elected to a high position.

Back to the Zionist issue though, Israel seems like they are itching for a war with Iran. The US automatically sides with Israel. The last thing we need is another war.

We sure do not need this crap that israel is pushing. They do not want a war with Iran. They prefer picking on tiny little Gaza. What they want is to bait the USA into a situation where we end up doing their dirty work for them such as in Libya and in Irag. The problem is the USA is war weary. I do not think this economy will support another war so soon. The current economic mess is a direct result of what Obama is doing in Afghanistan. Let's face it: China will bleed us dry in Afghanistan. And if we open a new front in Iran, it will be just that much worse for the USA. In the meantime, israel is still creating un-necessary problems and provoking un-necessary enemies.

People in this country need to wake up and wake up fast.

Terrible link!

By that definition, insurance is an "entitlement program". Just not a government one. The same with any pension plan.

That is not the definition used by the Government. It's worthless.

Blacks and Republicans can't get along because of :

1. Affirmative Action unfairly setting a side positions based on race rather than Merritt, qualifications, and preparation.

2. Blacks comprise 12.6% of the US population, yet comprise 39.9%(the majority) of Welfare Recipients.

3. Blacks comprise over 40% of prison inmates( again a majority), in fact, there are more Black men in prison today than were enslaved in 1850.

4. Blacks comprise, 52% of murderers in the US(again a majority).

It's amazing that despite being a 12.6% minority in this country, Blacks are a majority in leaching, mooching, and murdering as well, and the liberal media, voters, and politicians ignore it and accuse those who point it out of being racist, full of hate, and ignorant.

Wake up silent majority! Find your voice.

Same ignorant political correctness on your part over and over like the statistics aren't real or don't exist, or don't mean anything important.

Apparently you know the statistics and don't care. Otherwise, you'd have asked for supporting links to back them up. To blow off these facts because of race is racist. Most people would say wow, I didn't know that, or wow, that's interesting. You say so what?

How does it feel to be a reverse discriminatory racist?

No I was paraphrasing but the gist of it is, you think people concerned about the leaching on society are whiners and are redundant. That pretty much sum it up?

Damn!!!!!!!!!!

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, speaking on behalf of the Obama White House, to Rep. Paul Ryan: "You are right to say we're not coming before you today to say 'we have a definitive solution to that long term problem.' What we do know is, we don't like yours."


Those two sentences speak to a mentality so bereft of intellectual vigor, so stunningly and candidly shallow, so thoroughly irresponsible, so politically myopic, selfish, and cowardly, that it should disqualify this crew from a second term in office. What a disgrace. Remember this moment the next time Democrats accuse the GOP of being the "do nothing," intransigent, "party of no."

Simple. People who think like you conservatives love to throw up those same talking points like a broken record. You love to focus on the negative issues the enrage your "silent majority". Your characterization of leaching[sp] and mooching says all I need to know about your mindset. You're yet another dude who comes to cry and whine about blacks yet I'd be willing to bet you've done precious little of substantial merit with your own life. Self-righteous finger pointing is a staple with you conservatives.

So you just made my point for me after you denied it.

And, you would be wrong about me doing precious little of substantial merit with my own life. assumption is a bitch huh?

Typical Leftist Liberal mindset. Your mind is made up and there's nothing anyone can do or say to change it. You are a lost cause fueled by propaganda. The funny thing is you think you are so educated, intelligent, progressive, compassionate, and enlightened. It's all based on smoke and mirrors you've been taught to ingest and regurgitate under the guise of being informed.

What a Joke!
