    True story yesterday at the dealership.....

    "I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.

    One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit app with her he noticed she was on social security disability. He said to her you don't look like your disabled and unable to work. She said well I'm really not, I could work if I wanted to but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt (non-disabling injury).

    She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check, she gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent. Oh yeah and 250 minutes free on her phone. That is just south of $3500.00 a month.

    When she was working she was taking home about $330.00 per week. Do the math and then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to work. If you multiply that by millions of people you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country. Once the socialist have 51% of the population in that same scenario we are finished.

    The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already, and there are not enough people working to pay enough taxes to support the non-working people? Riots?? Be prepared to protect your homes.

    She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal $by 10.00/month. Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard earned money."

    *********************

    Were they sour they lost the deal or is it possible someone could get this much money (say...if they were disabled) ?

    $3500/month....untaxed (not sure if that is the case) equates to about $4500/$5000/mo.

    Wow.....

    BTW: This was on a local Ford dealers Facebook page (or so the e-mail I got states).

    I still find it all a bit tough to believe.

    So its socialism to help the poor out and help them out be able to feed themselves and have a roof over there head until they get back onto there feet? Tell me the right hasn't gotten this desperate.

    While i understand the feet and that people do abuse it, its there to help folks get back onto there feet.

    interesting and, since reality isn't your thing... i'll just say again. blue states pay more into the system than they take out. red states take more than they pay.

    so how about you stop mooching off of us more successful, better educated blue staters?

    I also find it funny Republicans want to wipe out Social security and say that is an entitlement well dam straight it is my parents paid into it and now they are getting what they have soued. The right truly does need to get its priorities straight.

    if paul ryan's plan were so good, he wouldn't put it into effect when his mother no longer needs it.

    Damn, I should file for disability. Oh, here's the kicker, she don't have to file a tax return either. She pays no property tax since she lives in an apartment and the only thing she pays taxes on are her booze, cigarettes and clothes. Pretty nice scam if you can convince the judge you can't work.

    Oh, I forgot the tax on the gas for her BRAND NEW CAR!
