Have you seen the size of these starving welfare and food stamp recipients? Many of them can hardly waddle down the street to refill their grocery carts. Food stamps or the charge card for such being used at McDonald's to stuff another milk shake down their kid's chubby faces. Even in the 70's I remember them pulling up with a car full of kids, like a variety pack, every one with a different father, sending them in one at a time to cash in a food stamp on a candy bar. Yes, even then they could be used on "candy" since it was "food". Enough change gathered since there was no food stamp below a dollar, in waddles big Mama to get a pack of smokes. Hilarious they come around to cash their "paycheck" as they called it and the store takes it because it's a govt check from the welfare dept. What exactly did they think they were being paid for? Have more illegitimate children?! Now with the cards, I have no idea what they are doing to crook the system, but if there's a way, you can be sure it's being done.
Yes, I'm against welfare to the rich too. Tired of seeing banks and businesses being bailed out. Banks should have had deposits backed only, and the rest left to them to deal with. Where do we get the idea a foolish bank shouldn't fail? If deposits are all backed and the bank fails anyway, then obviously they have problems that go beyond the economy.
Why bail out people who already gained more than others by taking fools' loans on terms they knew they'd never be able to meet later, or should have? Yes, support the actions of the foolish, tax the hell out of the wiser, and surely a country will grow strong and prosperous.
We've already been taxed through Greenspan and Federal Reserve policies of monetary inflation through extremely low interest rates. Greenspan who can't see bubbles. Greenspan who can't find inflation, until he discovers it happen in wages trying to catch up to all the bubbles his easy money policies engendered. As yes, then he decides to clamp down and head us into a deep Recession, and who can be sure where that will end after this dead cat bounce is over? Keep rolling those printing presses, churn out those dollars, devalue ours eventually, especially if China and Arabs start dumping dollars on us they've been hoarding till now. Yep, one day those chickens will come home to roost and Rev. Wright will be up there crowing about it too.
Reward the profligate and foolish, raise taxes on the wise to pay for it, and sail into prosperity in our battered economic boat with it's tattered sails, sloshing waters in the bilge, barely pushed by the hot air of Change and Hope shouted by our Socialist captain at the helm.
