    Obama did not create a welfare state, the right did.

    Tell the non working poor to get up off their asses and get a job. The rest of us have to work for our keep! They may see themselves as special but we see them as leeches.

    Its not even the fact it is only 10%. Its the fact that half of this country is on it some way or another. We are losing independance and responsibility. Thats the problem, as it will only get fuckin worse. IMO anyways

    The Federal government should not be spending a penny on the 'non working poor.'

    Tell the "job creators" to quit moving our jobs to China and maybe your idea might work.

    You think jobs have some sort of birthright, don't you?

    Something I always wondered about these whiny bitch Libtards.

    There are 10's of millions of liberals who believe that 'our' jobs are being shipped somewhere, but they won't band together to start companies so that they can overpay for the American-made goods and services they claim to support.


    In fact, Liberals are the least likely demographic to buy a product made by an American union worker.


    Pathetic hypocrites.

    So when Government Motors, Chrysler, et al finally get tired of outrageous pay and benefits for professional career lug nut tighteners and move those jobs somewhere they can get them tightened for a hell of a lot less money, the folks here whose career paths suddenly dead-ended can join up for 99 friggin' weeks of unemployment and assorted other government freebies.

    Oh those poor nonworking poor.
