@CrakRjakwel·fare [wel-fair"> Show IPA noun 1. the good fortune, health, happiness, prosperity, etc., of a person, group, or organization; well-being: to look after a child's welfare; the physical or moral welfare of society. 2. welfare work. 3. financial or other assistance to an individual or family from a city, state, or national government: Thousands of jobless people in this city would starve if it weren't for welfare. 4. ( initial capital letter ) Informal. a governmental agency that provides funds and aid to people in need, especially those unable to work.

You are on the standard definition of Welfare which is recognized. Personally I don't think it really matters you can be against the system even if it's against your interests that's your prerogative. I've benefited from EU grants, but I still think it's ridiculous some of the stuff I've

madest: You've been caught in more lies here than anyone, including some deceitful and devious behavior when you were a mod here.

I won't sell you crap and tell you it's really gold.


No of course not, you just believe you sh|t gold bricks and insist others believe your delusion.

CJ, I was on unemployment for 6 weeks at the end of Bush 1's term. Other than that I've work steadily since I was nine. Don't pretend you're anything like me. I won't sell you crap and tell you it's really gold.

This is Pauls Ryans Social Security plan which Mitt Romney said he supports and this is how crazy that ass pipe is on abortion. Don't tell my you like politicians that lie because that would make you a liar

What baffles me is that he throws his support behind people who believes he and many others are not entitled to receive it.


This libel against republicans has been going on for decades, they said Nixon would take SS away, they said Reagan would take away SS, they said both Bushs would take it away as well. All BULLSH|T lies meant to scare people. And btw, which president actually made people work to get welfare? Bill Clinton, a democrat. Who's about to bankrupt Medicare? Obama, a democrat.

And btw, madest how long were you on unemployment? How much of that money did you waste on buying pot? Did you get EBT as well?

I know you won't answer, because I've asked before and you wouldn't say. Talk about hypocrisy, you go and berate me and took government entitlements yourself.

So GBIOYA.

CrakrJaks in his 40's and on Social Security? How does that happen? No wonder Social Security is going broke. People have found a way to abuse government handouts as early as possible and as long as possible. I'm with Mitt Romney on this one. We need to crack down on people that abuse the system. And don't give me this crap about you paying into it. You've done nothing for at least the last 4 years. You're the problem CJ. Welfare queens who game the system are just as guilty as billionaire tax dodgers.

I live in California, which is like Florida but without the old people, the bestiality, and the face eaters.

@FoolsPrussia

An entire saftey net LOL! A FEW ROFL!! You live in Floridia it should be easy to see. Look it's simple!
1.Limit what it can be spent for.
2.Drug test still.
3.Make a job program to coincide with it don't take the job no welfare.
4. If you keep having kids you don't get more money.

That about does it but that would cause a demographic to not vote for you because it would require them to not be a parasite.

'You need to open your eyes then it's quite easy to see. You know it isn't hard to beat a drug test right? Nor are drug tests a mesure of people making a career out of welfare.'

I never said tests couldn't be beaten, but I just cited that as one example of an attempt to catch those people that failed.

The problem is you seem to think it's worth shutting down an entire safety net just to stop a few people from taking advantage. So what happens if more people fall into poverty as a result? That is a huge drag on the economy.

It amazes me how people think we can let a welfare system be taken advantage of by people unwilling not unable to work without a problem.

It amazes me how people can go after things like this and welfare/social security, confident in the fact that they will never need it.

That may be true for Mitt the Millionaire, but be realistic people, misfortune can befall anyone.

ROFL!! You need to open your eyes then it's quite easy to see. You know it isn't hard to beat a drug test right? Nor are drug tests a mesure of people making a career out of welfare. EBT cards can be cashed for whatever they want see a flaw there? You know why they don't change that? Votes! Under the excuse that it would be degrading to limit what welfare queens can do with other peoples money.

'Probably because tons of people take advantage of it instead of getting a job'

Of course there are always people who will try to game the system, but how do you quantify this as "tons"? In Florida, they tried to implement drug testing for welfare recipients and found less than 2% were using. They ended up spending more money on the testing than would have been saved by kicking those people off.

This is the irony of the Republican voter in a nutshell.

The term most often used here to cover these programs is "entitlements." It's generally a dirty word in American politics, though I can't understand why we demonize it.


Probably because tons of people take advantage of it instead of getting a job. Like using the EBT card at casinos, liqour stores and such but to limit what it can be used for would be degrading.......

@FoolsPrussia

"So, Crakrjak isn't on "welfare" as we call it, but he's certainly taking advantage of our "entitlements," as he's welcome to do."

I'll correct to that term, then. CrakrJak is a recipient of entitlements.

And he most certainly is entitled to receive it.

What baffles me is that he throws his support behind people who believes he and many others are not entitled to receive it.

Just face it CrakrJak; you're a welfare recipient.

There's no need to be ashamed of that (your strong argument about the semantics suggests you are).

But you shouldn't be so rabidly in support of those who threaten the very system you rely upon to live.

A republican on welfare is like a gay man donating to the Westboro Baptists.

@CrakrJak

Welfare is a generic term for many different social support systems, both inside your country and out. That includes the program you have called social security.

Having a social support system specifically named "welfare" does not stop the others being welfare systems, any more than Britain renaming itself "country" would stop the United States from being a country.

Musuko: If TANF, welfare, disappeared tomorrow here in the US, it wouldn't effect me at all.

I'm on Social Security. I know you can say it S O C I A L S E C U R I T Y, there I've spelled it out for like I would a child, since you're behaving like one.
