When the takers outnumber the producers and the welfare, food stamps, free medical, free cellphones, subsidized housing, utilities etc. get cut cause there's no more money. Then maybe they'll get a clue. That threshold is quickly approaching.

45% of the population pays absolutely no taxes.
This includes the ghetto crowd, illegal Mexicans, and a great percentage of muslims.
Hard working tax payers are forced to support these scum (aka criminals).
Many of these freeloaders live better than those who are forced to support them.
It is these groups in particular that commits most murders, and crimes in general.
Liberals condone and support their conduct, because they are politically correct.
Those people pay taxes on things other than income. In fact, they pay the same sales tax as the rich.

We aren't going to tax the poor out of existence simply because you don't like them. Or is it just the non-white ones that you don't like?

You just encapsulated the reason we are having this problem now. The defeatist mentality is not American, it's Anarchist. As long as we are not in a civil war, we are doing pretty well. Not as well as we should be doing, but not as bad as the doomsday sayers will have people believe.
I agree. Only if Obama is reelected and Pelosi resumes her Power over Congress will America become so badly broken that we won't survive.

Again, what have these lazy, slackers done in their miserable lives to be entitled to the same thing that hardworking people can buy? Nothing. If you take away their cells phones, tv s, all the emenities that hard working people strive for, I guarantee they will get a job. I am tired of buying their illegal drugs too. They will detox real fast when their money dries up.

Bad teeth, bad teeth, that's our underclass, in the US the poor don't even have teeth, I saw a guy on TV in America saying that the only way he could ever afford dental care was when he was in prison! And all your people who live in the projects & trailer parks never seem to have any teeth!! And your obesity epidemic is terrible, although it seems the UK is catching you up, again it's the poor I'm talking about.

It is a combination of what you mention and an America that has become lazy and looking for something for nothing.

It occurs to me that cell phone technology makes it an effective tracking and monitoring device.
If the government pays the bill, the right if privacy belongs to them. To be administered by a non-elected, but appointed Czar.
The device will remain in operation turned on or off with battery installed.
Not only can it listen in whatever environment it is in, it also transmits satellite tracking coordinates.
Elections matter.

WTF are they talking about? The American dream is a can of beer, a willing wife and football on the HD wide-screen. Now, to really enjoy all that, we also need the government check. There ain't no sense in having a dream interupted by something stupid like work. Only saps and suckers work or pay taxes. The trick is to stay home and get somebody else to do that so that instead of paying taxes, taxes pay YOU!

Give me the old gub'ment check anyday. Borrow from my grandkids (and their grandkids) sez me, and party till the free sh*t runs out!

Obama 2012!
