Must have struck a nerve. Hate to see you all nervous and upset. I was born and raised in La. Very, very familiar with La policatics. What jobs are talking about. More unemployed now than in many years. You ever drive down the streets and see the hungry. you can see the drunks in Baton Rouge capital building. I am living 30 miles from my farm in La. Living in Texas because, no sales tax on food and medicine. no income tax. their are more but you get the idear. I agree with youngs folks deal. they all think some one owes them a living. But 22 percent of the children in the greatest nation in the world are living under the poverty level. thne highest in 30 years. I have seen a good many hungry people in La and Texas. I lived through the long days. Very up on La history . Now you have a good day sir. Now i have a fair interest in La. i still own a house on the old hnome place that i lived in a shotgun house without electric until about 1939

What the hell did you do all day sit at home playing at the computer, taking turns whacking it, and then posting on political forum boards? Or do you just do that at work?

The saddest part of your post is, it is not the dumbest thing I've ever read.
When my son as a stupid teenager, smoking pot, doing nothing, I told him, STOP THAT OR I'M CUTTING OFF YOUR MEDICAID!!!
That just straightened him right up. Now he is the CEO of a large health insurance agency.

Where do you "people" get this crap?

I guess a few messyshits won't get their healthcare paid for when they wack their hand with the hammer instead of the nail with the hammer at their construction job.

You could be right. I have never got any free money, so i figured that a lot of strings, taxes, fines,etc would eventually follow..
I can tell you a lot about the illegal immigrants, illegal aliens. they come straight out of Mexico in to this town with a sack full of dope. they immediately go to the hospital, for free babies, free medical(don't think they use free medicaid, don't have to till a later date) free rx. almost free food. they will not take a job that holds out ss, medicare, income taxes. Now we have a few, just a few around that have their green work card or they are US citizens and they go to work at least five days a week and do not bother anyone. MOst are illegal. most auto fatilities areound the area, have illegal involved. no drives licinese, no insurance, usually drunk or under the influence of the drugs they bring throug here.
