    Good article
    Why Work Anyway?

    "There are over 70 Federal welfare programs right now and the list will continue to grow under Obama."

    "Our entitlement society is out of control. It is a sad fact that a head of a household of four making minimum wage has more disposable income than a family making $60,000 a year."

    The guy making minimum wage is working.
    It's the family on welfare who is living better than one that is working that is sad.

    According to ShadowStats.com the real unemployment rate is over 22%. http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts

    But don't tell the MSM as they have no interest in the truth...

    The government lies every month about the unemployment rate. If they lie about that, they will lie about anything, which they do. Yet the MSM continually accepts and promotes the lies.

    The employment picture is not improving, but somehow Obama is not to blame. 82 million adult Americans are unemployed and most apparently have no intention of working. CRAZY!!!

    Cruella has a point. Why work? You gotta drive and waste $3 a gallon of gas to get there.In some cities you gotta pay to park just to go to work. Plus you gotta pay uncle sam outta your paychecks. So why work?

    Soon.

    It is likely when BO is done in four years we will have 20 trillion in debt and a failing economy. It can't continue much longer.

    Something I heard on "The Five" today was that in the past five months, 73% of the "new jobs" were in government. This isn't the same as being on public assistance, but it's the tax payers who pay their salaries.

    all the House has to do is just say no to debt ceiling increases.
    imagine if they did, just for two years even. it would be revolutionary.
    the world would keep on spinning, thwe parasites would work or die and we would start looking like America again.

    If the government couldn't raise the debt ceiling, can they still print more money?

    I don't think so. The printing presses have largely been replacing the usual t-bills the last year or so.

    Yes. The last several months government has hired 73% of all new jobs. Isn't that wonderful? I could not find one old lib MSM site that published this news....not surprising of course. So, our liberal members will not have heard this news...not that they would care....

    I am glad I am not a young person. Because today many young people have little desire to work thanks to liberalism. They would rather play games and drink beer. I too liked playing games and drinking beer....still do...so if I were young today, I would chose not to work and get on the dole. And waste my life away screwing around accomplishing nothing. Sad....very sad.

    I wish I didn't have to work.
    If I didn't I would be entitled to nothing in way of state aid.
    I will be working until I am 80...I can see it. :cry:
