    ...social programs??? I'm talking about food stamps/welfare handouts, social security, medi care, subsidized housing, employment etc. Please pick one of the below answers that best gives your level of dependency upon government wealth redistribution programs for your personal survival...

    1) I need no assistance let alone social programs.

    2) 20% or below.

    3) 20% to 40%.

    4) 40% to 60%

    5) 60% to 80%.

    6) The welfare state is my sole provider.

    I'm asking this question for I have a pretty good idea that the social programs are going to be going on a severe 'diet' here very shortly. The folks in the 20% or less dependency class will weather the cuts the best. Those with a higher level of government dependency are going to have to learn to start 'picking shit with the chickens' for sure... like living in a pickup & camper in the parking lots of Wally World looks to be the wave of the future!!!

    When I got out of prison in the 80's I was dependent. My wife was pregnant with a child that wasn't mine. Several years went buy and the govts attitude changed. I was told to pay back all the AFDC that my wife had recieved or else they would hint down the "real" father.
    I had supported Meghan from the time I got out till now. But the govt was more interested in preserving their money than they were preserving the family unit.

    Priorities in this country are fucked.

    I paid the money they demanded just to keep a fuckin druggy loser away from my daughter. They only cared about the money spent.


    But now Obama spends trillions and asks for more.

    FUCK HIM

    My son is DD and gets medical through the state.

    I have in the past needed help, but I do not need help now. Most people use government aid when they are going through a rough patch, and don't abuse the system.

    That's your perception. I'm afraid reality does not agree.

    Oh. You, at one time, accepted pubic assistance. Without said assistance, you may have had to deny your family necessities......or found some other way to get quick cash. Meaning......you needed the help...and accepted it.

    But.....because you are different and better than most others who accept assistance...and are so resourceful and diligent....you "escaped". Well....what a fucking great guy!

    Now...you rail against those "others" on a regular fucking basis. A regular reformed government teat-sucker. Wonderful.

    People with little to be proud of spend a lot of time trying to invent reasons they're better than everybody else.

    We see a lot of that here.
