Yes, and who the f*ck are YOU?
What really makes me laugh is the stupidity of certain posters here and then the blatant hypocrisy to boot. You all troll around just looking to instigate a fight. Or you post with proxies and grey box and cuss up a storm with the most vulgar and profane filth about incest and nonstop lies about my personal life and my family.
And all you've got on me is some curse words?
LMAO! Yeah, I find that f*cking hilarious!
These are middle-aged and older bullies, and that's a tribute to their low IQ's and the fact that none of them IS anybody. They need a crowd of bullies to reassure themselves that they're "special". The kind of special they are is the same kind of special I just heard a sheriff in Winter Haven, FLA discuss after arresting two bullies in the suicide death of 14 year old Rebecca Ann Sedwick. But, these Neanderthals are adults.

Yeah. They're friggin' hilarious, almost as funny as Cujo was.

I understand where you are coming from now...
here's a little clue: first, the entitlement folks will 'attack' other entitlement folks... sorta like they commit 99.9% of their crimes 1) in their neighborhoods and 2) on each other.
after they have waged raids on each other, then those left will come for you and me... in quite less numbers, I might add.
why? because they know the WEAKEST prey are folks like themslves. folks like you and me actually have 'stuff' that we earned... like guns and ammo... and are willing to fight to keep.
so, folks like you support 'entitlement' programs out of fear and self-interest.
I understand... completely.
You give the poor just enough to keep them at bay because if you don't... you'll pay for it in some other way e.g. prison, death, more crime than we have now etc etc!!!

And you mentioned my self interest... well it's in your interest also.

'Jesus Christ' Challenges AIDS Walk Los Angeles Anti-Gay Protesters
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/14/jesu...
A man dressed as Jesus Christ arrived to protest anti-gay protestors at the AIDS Walk Los Angeles. Some might call it an act of "divine intervention."

In the midst of the picketing, a man dressed like Jesus in a white tunic and full beard arrived to challenge the protestors. He stood alongside the hatemongers on the sidewalk while carrying a bunch of red balloons.

Why we get government by entitlement

Oct 15th 2013,
......[EXCERPT:]
.....People like to joke that America's government is basically an insurance company with an army. The never-ending series of payment crises Republicans have concocted over the past few years are rendering this ever truer. Increasingly, entitlement programmes and defence are the only two functions the government can be counted on to actually pay for—and I'm not even sure about the latter.
I believe you are right. America is an Insurance Company with a Army. Pretty Cool don't you think?

The Dollar Store's Food-and-Cigarettes Strategy Is Working
Last year, Family Dollar decided it sold enough cheap detergent and school supplies — what it needed was food and cigarettes. Its research found that many of its customers smoke, and smokers tend to make frequent trips to buy cigarettes — maybe they’d pick up some groceries and whatnot while they were there. Food is also something people buy frequently, so the combination hopefully would boost traffic. So the discount chain teamed up with McLane, a grocery and tobacco supplier to convenience and drug stores, to add refrigerated and frozen foods such as DiGiorno Pizza, Eggo Waffles, and Stouffer’s Lasagna. So far, it’s working.
I know I used to avoid the dollar general until they started selling cigarettes.

For Obama, budget fight has high stakes for agenda
WASHINGTON (AP)— For President Barack Obama, the outcome of this week's fiscal fights with Republicans could have broad consequences for his stalled second-term agenda.

A favorable deal for the White House might give Obama an opening to marginalize the tea party Republicans who have tried to win concessions from him in order to reopen the government and raise the nation's debt ceiling. But if no agreement is reached by Thursday's debt limit deadline, Obama will become the first modern president to preside over a government default, a dubious distinction with potentially calamitous economic consequences that could consume the White House for the foreseeable future.

Another, perhaps more likely, option: Obama ends up signing short term bills that keep Washington in the never-ending cycle of deadline-driven budget battles. For Obama, that would mean fiscal issues would keep consuming the oxygen in the nation's capital at a time when he is already watching his window for passing significant domestic legislation close.

"It's a ticking clock," Julian Zelizer, a political historian at Princeton University, said of presidential second terms. "He's already into the red zone in terms of getting things done."

Questions about Obama's political clout also deepened last month, when congressional lawmakers, including many Democrats, appeared on the brink of rejecting his request for approving military action against Syria. A last-minute diplomatic overture from Russia prevented Obama from having to hold a vote, saving him from what would have almost certainly been an embarrassing defeat.

and I like your idea about raising the number of quarters to be eligiable.
matter of fact, if one is NOT eligiable for SS, why get FEDERAL disability, either?
once we let the FG into the retirement arena, is it any wonder IT then got into the disability and welfare business?lol
something about the ol' slippery slope-thingee...
people NEVER, ever learn, do they?
btw, I was listening to CSPAN this AM and a black person called in on the 'Indie' line and made the comment that Reps are anti-entitlement and therefore anti-people of color(specifically blacks).
doesn't this 'Indie' realize that, still, WHITES make up the MAJORITY of those receiving these bennies?
wouldn't that make the Reps ANTI-WHITE?LOL
how does one argue with/against LIARS and 3Ders(specifically Progressives)? without calling them, loudly and often, what they ARE?
(sigh)
Raising up the credits should be a no brainer along with one year to retirement age.. Lifting the cap same as well.. I would rather see that than raising it up 2 or 3 years and leaving the credits alone.. I mean if you are lets say 65 and haven't earned 60 credits you wasted your life.. Regarding SSD you have to have your credits before you can get that.. SSI is different as far as I know and done through the state.. I really don't know anyone on it and those few here that does don't discuss it either.. Hell they don't even discuss what their SS or SSD is either.. Not even their medicare or private insurance.. I really don't know what the big secret is bot ole well..

LOL! Too funny.
They all went berserk when I became a Topix Editor. I remember Barnes running all over the threads and announcing that WIR had become an Editor. Then they went on this campaign to shut that down. Winston was behind that.
Man, they must have felt really threatened to pull all the crap they did, and they still haven't gotten rid of me. Hahahhahah!
But let's see who's missing from that group of lying hypocrites and bigots:
Barnes/Torchwood
Winston
Ladyfed
Mudstomper/The Runt
Citizen Jane
Ann (one of the most vulgar, nastiest of posters ever)
Betsy Ross
Flappity Flap
Agent of Chaos
OkBuilder
Plainfield Mom
And a host of others. The rest have to hide behind proxies and post grey box like the cowards they are. LOL!
I remember all those names. I was a noob back then and stood in that Mexico take over by 2014 thread for several months before I spread my wings and went to other threads.

Torchwood was annoying and well you know, her & I used to bump heads. I also remember the proxies and the nasty crap they'd throw at you... heck they still do it.

You're obviously envied by all of them.

I can see that old Monica is busy envying you as usual also today. That poor man tranny, he has no life.
