NO! actually there's more people on it than there are people to pay for it!

PS: Especially if you include government and why shouldn't you?

Observer you observations are notable, I know I was.
I had to work growing up and in your opinion I know you think of that as abuse, correct?

The government pays for it, dopey. This your first time in America? We're a big time country here!
So this is what propped Uh Clem for because it would seem you think the gov. has its own special money set aside for the president to use for his vacations when it in fact comes from taxes paid by you and I which Clem stated that to you. You don't wish to discuss anything if it proves contradictory to something you said, instead you choose to prove how much smarter you believe you are with your derogatory statements to others.
So I may not know the complete definition of civics although I have an idea and no I don't think its a honda. You see I am one of the folks your actually defending who never received a college education and has struggled my whole life to make it in this world by using my hands to do the shit nobody else wants to. And I'm pretty sure you aren't able to tell me what it takes to pull 79,000 pounds up a hill or how to to go down a steep grade without losing your breaks, " good buddy" I'm also doubting you understand what that term means as well. Either way, civilized discussion requires respect for one another and not " your just a dumbass " attitude. I deal with public communications every day as required by my job and judging by your communication skills I can honestly say you would fail miserably and wouldn't last long at my job. No I don't think you care, just making a statement.
Psst, he apparently voted for Obama twice, maybe even more. Raional thought isn't his strong suit. Doesn't register enough on the meter to even qualify as his weak suit.

<quoted text>I just think it's awful, the awful way you talk about your mom. It's "bizarre."
Did your mom ever rob your piggy bank as a child routinely? Did your neighbors ever show up at your house every other payday to be paid back money they loaned your mother? Did your mom ever use your name & SSN to obtain credit running you into debt by the thousands before you were old enough to be in college? Did your mom ever ask to see your breasts because they were larger than hers and she's entitled to look since she gave birth to you? Has your mother ever stolen money out of your purse or borrowed money secretly from your 5 year old's disney savings promising the said 5 year old she'll pay them back but she never did? Or borrowed your son's birthday cash on his birthday? Have you ever seen your mom use a man just for his money or so he'd buy her a car and then watch her dump him after she got what she wanted even though you tried as politely as possible to tell the man she wasn't a good person? Ever hear your mom make a complaint just so she could get something for free? Fake an illness so she wouldn't have to work? Ever have your mom routinely tell you her you should "just get over it and forgive him" after her brother molested you? Spend all the child support your dad sent for school clothes on cocaine and then steal clothes from the salvation army bin and claim your dad never sent a penny? Ever throw a benefit and then keep half the money for "payment" for her "generosity" in throwing said benefit? Ever have your mother tell you your child looked like a baby pig (the day he was born) and you should have aborted it because your husband refused to loan her money?

Or as of today: Tell me that I have to pay her bills this month because she spent all her money on christmas presents and when I said I couldn't afford to she went off on me about how it was more important for her to give the kids "a decent christmas" than it was for me to have spare money - knowing that my car engine went and I'm saving for another vehicle in addition to having to get my kids gifts myself?

If you can say your mom did any of the above and you still think I'm "bizarre" for talking that way about the woman who birthed me... then feel free but I think you'll see the light.

So this is the reason why Obama hasn't given me the increase in SS
I suppose to get?

A disgusting $3.7 Trillion was spent on welfare since Obama took office. And this obscene figure accounts only for free benefits paid out without any sort of contribution having been made by the recipient. It does not include Social Security or Medicare. Under Obama’s reign of Socialism, the amount spent on welfare was almost 5 times greater than what was spent on transportation, education, and NASA, combined. And this figure doesn’t include the $200 Billion spent on welfare by the states. According to a CATO study, the cash value of federal welfare benefits for one household can equal almost $50,000.

How'd he know I didn't vote for him?

There will always be welfare, it is sad that some can't even step up to the simple existence that they represent..but it is true..and those that choose this place will never except responsibility for their action, children, footprint...

I too wish it were not this way..but it is.

There will always be poor people and people afflicted in ways that keep them from being productive, there will not always be Welfare.
That's just another thing the federal government stuck their nose in
that's turned into a tragedy.
Do you know what caused Welfare to begin with?
Federal Government Interference with businesses, companies, and the general freedom of the civilization + being in wars they had no business in, spending money they didn't have and printing money that's worthless.
