<quoted text>What is really stupid is that with 800,000 federal workers laid off, congress now says they will get paid for staying home. WTF
That is costing taxpayers over 250,000,000 dollars per day. Why close it if you are going to pay them anyway?
This is nothing new and was expected to happen. The furloughed workers during the 1995-1996 shutdown were retroactively paid as well.

Nancy Pelosi said the ones at home are "non-essential" jobs. If this is the case why aren't those "non essential" jobs eliminated?

Jealous of money someone has earned? No. Pissed about giving them MY money, yes. You worry about redistribution to the poor but fall all over yourself in support of gushing out welfare to the rich,$1.2 trillion dollars of it annually. Call me greedy if you like. I would stop welfare, period. I would start with the most expensive first, the wealthy. That is such a foreign notion that the neocon shit birds think I am a liberal and the la de dah liberals think I am tea party.
As a white male politically incorrect unaffiliated voter, you think I have not been a target already? You are FOS.
<quoted text>
If you're pissed about giving your money, then why do you keep harping on welfare to the rich. At least they're out working to make money. I say start from the bottom up. Stop handouts to the welfare kings and queens and actually propose they WORK for a living. The wealthy are contributing by paying taxes no matter how much you think they're getting a break.

I'm not full FOS, I'm full of reality. I know from raising children that if they're given everything they want without understanding the concept of earning money to purchase things they want, we become enablers.

You sir are an enabler because you have a beef with the wealthy. You don't believe in ending welfare for everyone, only the wealthy. You've stated it over and over and then you throw a few crumbs about stopping welfare for the poor after your rants about the wealthy.

You can stop "welfare" for the wealthy and they'll still be wealthy; however, can you say the same about the poor. Do you really think they may actually look around and decide they need to work and pay their own way?

You sir are FOS. Welfare to the wealthy consumes more than $1.2 trillion dollars per year from the US treasury. The wealthy are the most conspicuous, most expensive welfare queens and deadbeats of all.

Bank of America gets a $20 billion dollar bailout from the US government. That's $20,000,000,000 of OUR tax money. Then the man who helped drive the bank into near insolvency , Ken Lewis, gets a$125,000,000 severance package. WE paid for that package . That is just one example involving just one man. A logical person intending to end welfare would start with the most expensive welfare queens first. Idiots want to start with the least expensive and most helpless, the children. That is why I think you are either stupid or dishonest or both.

The most non productive, corrupt and counter productive federal employees are those in congress. We need to start with eliminating their pay. Then eliminate those sugar daddy jobs invented for their cronies that we are paying for.

Spoken like a true member of the "party of stupid". Obamacare didn't work for my sister, even though it hadn't started yet. I don't know if it will work for me. I'm just a republiCON, who doesn't know whether to crap or go blind. Instead of writing "don't touch this" on your body parts just write "replace this" on your forehead.
On the other hand good luck with your surgery, hopes for a speedy recovery:)
Allen you're the only person on here that makes me laugh.Now, if you'd read my post carefully, you'd know I said that her doctors quit their practices and became company doctors, as they said that Obamacare would cost them money.Then,I said at this point, she remains unaffected by Obamacare otherwise.The surgery came out ok, I had a Republican doctor!:)

You sir still did not answer my question. If welfare were cut off as you would like it to be to everyone, who would fare better?

REALITY is the rich. So what if they don't get tax breaks, they'll get it some other way-i.e. passing on the cost to the consumers.

Do you think the poor will finally see living off the government is not a means of income and get a job?

I agree with you and some other poster about getting rid of government "non-essentials" without pay who are living off the government for doing nothing as well and term limits on those elected to Congress. BTW, Congress is just like the poor with their hands out taking money from us and they don't do a darn thing but vacation and name call for a living. I'll go as far as saying the POTUS is as lazy as Congress and all he wants to do is have pissing contests with anyone that disagrees with him. Kick him out too and his Obamacare or Romney care or whatever you guys want to call it and be done with whole crowd.

As citizens we could do a better job than the crowd in Washington. We would protect each other, feed those that are really in need and expect a day's work for a day's pay and make healthcare affordable by not forcing people to by but negotiating with insurance companies for reasonable/fair health insurance and if they don't want to play, then they'll figure it out when they're left in the dark. It's not rocket science.

I believe you are right about incidents governmental terrorism.
Sand Creek, Waco, Wounded Knee are domestic examples. The fire bombing of Dresden on Feb 13, 1945 killed 135,000. That was more killed than in either Nagasaki or Hiroshima . The bomber crews were even told "this is a terror raid".
NY on 9.11.01 was a terror raid ON the USA by SAUDIs . So Dubya responded by attacking Iraq. Obama has been effectively terrorizing
the terrorists with drone strikes and by killing Bin Laden.
However, I am unaware of any domestic governmental terrorism during Obama's tenure. Perhaps you could enlighten me.

Your sister's doctors quit before Obamacare even started, according to you. Your doctor is refusing to treat you because of Obamacare and you have not even signed up for Obamacare yet?. I really do not understand that. If you can pay for your treatement and/or already have insurance, what does Obamacare have to do with anything? If your doctor is that irrational, it may be better if he doesn't treat you. I empathize with your situation. I have experienced the same situation long before Obama was even elected.

No it is your Socialist government playing with social engineering again trying to get the banks to loan money. Of course the government wants them to lend it to people that cannot pay it back. That is ok, your social government will them steal more tax money form working Americans to pay for the loans the freeloader could not pay for.

You need to get the whole story. It is not the bank. If some one offered you free money you would take it too. And that is what the Dems did offered money to get the banks to make risky loans. Been down this path before.
All banks are in business for one thing, making money. Not for me not for you and not for tsf,tfs,#$#% or what ever.

You live in a dream world. Those poor innocent bankers were tricked and forced into loaning money to those who couldn't pay it back. They got bonuses for making more and more bad loans. Then they bet that the money wouldn't be paid back and made the USA their insurance company. So they wrote off the loans as losses and got paid for the losses they didn't truly have. Inventing an instrument called derivatives, they sold the bad loans to each other. Then they got the bailouts and gave themselves huge bonuses. Bankers got the gold mine, we taxpayers got the shaft. Then they blamed the government for "forcing" them into the bad decisions and laughed all the way to the Caymans to deposit their winnings. Idiots in the public bought the cock and bull story and still believe it today.

Any fascist terrorist government would have already shot your deranged face and run you through a chipper with some other horse manure and made something useful like compost. The fact that you can constantly spew forth your venom against our USA is proof that your claims are false. You are too stupid to even understand how lucky you are to live in this country.

Then the Senate would be the only cronies, dump them and then we would only be left with the President, oh wait, would that make him a dictator or King? Did you know that Facebook is running fiber lines from Florida to Washington? Guess why? Did you know that the owner of Facebook is on that new "Billion" list from Forbes. Do you know the gov. crap you have to go through the install lines like that across how many states? Yeah, we need to dump cronies alright.
