No time to celebrate big boy you got work to do. I'm working in the morning. You better get to it as well.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
LOL!! Obama won't do shit for another four years bank it
Not a chance. But just get shit done. It's all his now. No more excuses. Get it done.
he won't, and will continue to blame bush, America is officially the dumbest country in the world
I still got to go to work in the morning. I still pay my bills and my taxes. Time for others to pull their weight as well.
Tired of paying for others.
Man, this country is full of quitters.
how will that change? odumba won't create any new jobs
Country has turned into a bunch of moochers. I'll cutting my philanthropic efforts to offset increase in taxes. Why pay it twice?
I only support welfare for people that truly need it (and look for more stringent regulations on who can get it), but I feel like we've crossed a line from people hating moochers to people simply hating the poor.
It's because they've become almost indistinguishable. So many people are poor nowadays just because they know the government will support them. There is no initiative to change. It's hard to tell the difference between people who are just struggling and those who are content with collecting their government check each month.
Worst joke of all-time?
odumba? That's the best you got?
Great post. The poor are not scratching and clawing to escape poverty anymore. They just throw up the white flag and accept their checks. I feel bad for someone who pours their heart out and comes up short. I'll pitch in for those folks 7 days of the week. This country and BO have created a class of people, very much like our prison system, where you'd think they'd be miserable but they are actually quite chill and pleased with where they are at.
Do you actually believe that BO has created this class of people you speak of?
I doubt 4 years in office is enough to change a person's whole outlook in life. In fact I don't doubt, I know.
Standards for who gets the money and how much goes out have weakened. The stats prove it, BO is a welfare president.
This is what you want so badly to be true. But it couldnt be farther from the truth. But continue to say it though, I know it makes you feel better about your own life.

The stats don't prove the assertion that BO has created a class of people who are happy to mooch. Ridiculous assertion.
It makes him feel better to be able to say this. Just let him have it.
Save your money - depression is coming
Depression came and we are pulling through rather strongly.
Load. Of. Crap.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Basic human psychology allows you to understand that if you dont make someone work their way out of a situation, instead sustaining them in it, they will be fine with staying.
There's no arguing on message boards about that. Face to face people are much more reasonable. So I'll bow out.
That is absolutely ludicrous. People are happy about being poor, they don't want to be well off? I find that hard to believe, and it certainly was Obama who created this type of person. There are always leeches, but for as many leeches there are many more people scrapping tooth and nail to put food on the table for their family.
You'd have to be honestly pretty naive to think in 4 years Obama has had a big enough effect to create a "class of people who are happy to be poor but live off government money". It just holds no water whatsoever, and I'm wondering where the hell you come up with this crap. There isn't even a class of people in Canada like that, and we have MUCH more social assistance than you folks. Providing welfare does not create freeloaders, because welfare is dirt poor money and people want more.
Nobody wants to be poor, and most people would be willing to work to be wealthy. The problem is a ton of people are willing to sit on their ass to remain a similar flavor of poor. I've heard of more than one instance of someone refusing to take a job because they didn't see the little extra money being worth dropping unemployment. I actually tried to hire one person, and I saw his point of view. He was a $12/hour kind of guy. The difference in his potential paycheck and his unemployment wasn't enough to get him out of bed in the morning.
However, this isn't the issue we're really dealing with here. Our problems are significantly deeper than welfare. There is no end in sight for spending. They're going to raise taxes on most anyone that makes a good living, but it wont be nearly enough to cover the spending.
thats a lie. He will spend lots of $$$$
Trust me, that one did.
