    Gov. Deval Patrick’s free wheels for welfare recipients program is revving up despite the stalled economy, as the keys to donated cars loaded with state-funded insurance, repairs and even AAA membership are handed out to get them to work.

    But the program - fueled by a funding boost despite the state’s fiscal crash - allows those who end up back on welfare to keep the cars anyway.

    “It’s mind-boggling. You’ve got people out there saying, ‘I just lost my job. Hey, can I get a free car, too?’ ” said House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading).

    LOL ... MM has a good point. The jobs haven't really vanished, just the market has shifted to different ones. They have always been there, hell, you could always clean toilets, janitorial is always hiring.

    Some think that everybody should have a white collar job.
    They are going to be in deep shit if all the plumbers agree with.

    If we filled the void they are, then there wouldn't be enough incentive for them to jump the border. If only more Americans were willing to roll up their sleeves, and get a little dirty.

    It amazes me how many Americans refuse to take a "lower paying" job, even during tough times.

    It's that whole "what is mommy government going to do to take care of me" mentality.
    Aside from the foreign policy discussion, did you notice that during the debates all the questions were related to how the nanny state would take care of you? (Note, the MSM decided what questions were allowed) I'm only going to post the first link, you can search the rest on your own.
