President Hopenchange gave his usual Thanksgiving message today and with it was heavy with the usual BS about helping the poor. At the risk of sounding like a hard-hearted, greedy, sexy bastid, I’m just about sick of the poor! I consider “the poor” to be those who receive welfare payments, food stamps, Section 8 government housing, and all manner of government programs. You know, the ones with new Nike Air Jordans and brand new iPhone 5’s!

It appears to me the “poor” sure get a lot of things paid for by guys like me! You know, guys with jobs and iPhone 4s who work our guts out trying to not go on food stamps! When is President Obama going to be concerned about me? Oh, on the 12th? That’s good! The 12th of Never! If you remember, white guys don’t even exist in the socialist la-la land of Obama and his foaming at the mouth libtard friends!

Obama said today:

“But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.

That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to ….

We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back. Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.”

No, Mr. Obama, my responsibility is to take care of my family and me! The government has MADE it my responsibility to take care of others by the force of a gun you hold to my head. If I don’t pay the heavy tax burden you have placed around my neck, I go to jail. So please save the drama telling me it’s my responsibility to take care of the poor! No, it’s not my responsibility…or at least shouldn’t be. It’s the law!

All that cat can do is redistribute wealth! Like I once heard Walter Williams put it perfectly, if I want to give a bum a dollar from my earnings, that is my right to do so. It’s money I have earned. But I have no right to reach into the wallet of my friend and give that bum a dollar of his earnings. I have not earned that money. So how does the government have the right to do the exact thing? Because they have the guns and will put my ass in prison if I don’t pay up each year.

America under Obama and the Dims has become too focused on the poor. None of the remedies of additional welfare and programs will fix the poverty problem in America. Not that any leftist wants “the poor” to become “the wealthy.” Think of all the lost Democrat voters!

More has to be done to reward performers that add to America rather than dole out our money to those who add nothing but dependency! I am not responsible for anyone being in poverty and I shouldn’t have to bear the financial burden of the poor decisions “the poor” have made to remain there. There is no shame being born into poverty. But there is no excuse for doing little to rise above it! Too many on welfare wouldn’t go to work if they got a job as a Playboy photographer! So forgive my lack of compassion for the growing hordes of lazy, unskilled, ignorant welfare mooching hordes who want more from my thin wallet!

Magician Penn Jillette said it along the same lines but far better than I can:

It’s amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness.

People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we’re compassionate we’ll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint.

Well, he IS a magician, after all. But he’s exactly right! I’m tired of government looters telling us what OUR responsibility is! Especially libtards. Studies show liberals give less of their own money away than Ebeneezer Scrooge. Like Margaret Thatcher said, “socialists eventually run out of other people’s money to spend.” And they’re quickly running out of mine!

You can weigh in on that if you like. I’d like to hold on to more of what I earn. If I want to help someone, I will. But I won’t ask them or the government for anything!

Open Post time. Now I guess we’re in official Christmas time. AWD will tell you I don’t pay attention to Christmas until about 5 days before Christmas Day. I hate me some Christmas music!!! There are only about 7 Christmas songs and I hear them from Halloween through the Super Bowl! And I will NOT set foot in a store or mall. I do nearly all my shopping on the internet and have it delivered. Most of what I buy is for me anyway.

Here’s a guy I found that shows two things. Relatives shouldn’t procreate and white people should avoid rap at all costs. For all you ig’nant bastids, the guy the white rapper is talking about, John Cena, is a pro rassler!


I was trying to think of some Music That Doesn’t Suck that deals with the poor but all I could think of was the Dead Kennedy’s “Kill The Poor.” And it pretty much sucks. Little known fact. AWD did a stage dive at a Dead Kennedy’s concert back in college. I figured I could tell my grandchildren one day. I also would hate to be on my death bed thinking, “Hey! I never did a stage dive during a Dead Kennedy’s concert!” So I got that going for me. Which is nice!

All right, AWD is in for some great music over the next couple weeks! I’m going to finally see the last artist I have not yet seen in concert. That’s right, Willie! I can’t divulge where I’m catching up with the Red Headed Stranger because of possible trollage, but I can report that AWD will be scootin’ some boots over the boards somewhere in the Lone Star State. Here’s some of Willie’s goodness:

And I love this one:

And here’s a beautiful one with Bonnie Raitt called “You Remain.”

    And he denies he’s a socialist. Go figure.

  2. Jesus said the poor will always be with you,

  3. We do have a duty to take care of the poor and less fortunate than us, BUT we are the judge of who we take care of and how. God did not appoint Mr. Obama to make that designation and justify it by STEALING from some and giving to who Mr. Obama designates as unfortunate. Mr President you can not wrap yourself in a Bible and use it as justification to STEAL goods and services from people. Thats a grievous lie and sin you are committing. You should be ashamed of what you say, you have no honesty, no integrity, you lie…

    • Michael (I’m not being argumenative) Jesus said to “render unto Caesar what is Caesars, and unto God what is God’s”. Okay my point is God doesn’t want (materially)more than 10% of our first fruits (tithes) why should Caesar get more than God?
      Note: God really, most of all wants our LOVE. Caesar wants our MONEY and our LOVE. Last part ain’t happening,from me at least.

      • That is exactly the thing that burns me up: If God only requires 10%, who is the government to require more? If they can’t make do with 10% or less, they’re not qualified to be handling the finances, let alone strong-arming the citizens into supporting their follies.

        • Well, to liberals the government is God… liberals view the One True God as an imaginary entity who steals that 10% from their potential revenue and the belief in him as problematic in their attempts to convert the masses to the dogma of “we are our own gods”

        • The reality is, if all wage earners paid 10% as a flat tax, the gov’t would fair just fine. But our tax codes and such end up taxing about 40% of the better wage earners that pay for over 70% of the taxes. The gov’t could tax the wealthy at 100% and it wouldn’t put a dent in our debt…Then once they’re either bankrupt and waiting for their welfare checks, etc or moved out of the country, then what, Mr Obama?

  4. I guess I can help the poor, Come over and Clean the dog crap up and I`ll give you twenty bucks.And thats really good as I keep it sorta picked up, I had a Loser ask me once when I was Mowing grass at a church, if I could loan him some gas money. I told him I had nothing to do with the church, just trying to earn gas money myself because my ex-wife cleaned me out. but he could grab a lawn-boy and start in where I couldn`t get my big mowers…….We all know what happend.and the funny thing is I was living in my dads basement, I had nothing I had to mow grass to eat while working a “Union Job” full time. I sold that business six years later and built a new house. so kiss my ass poor people.

  5. My father died a little over a month ago. A few years ago I had to quit my job ay Krogers to look after my as his health had declined to a point where he needed more help (he had a stroke back in 2003). Now that he is dead I have to return to the workforce, and needless to say, it is getting pretty bare out here as far as careers go. Now I am not a freeloader, or a moocher, and I abhor the thought of taking other people’s stuff.

    If you are a young person today then a lot of job prospects are pretty meager. This is one reason why I oppose big government. It chokes the life out of the employment structure of our country. Do not get me wrong, there are still plenty of jobs, but how will be left once Obamacare and the hypertaxation starts next year?

  6. The sluggard’s craving will be the death of him, because he refuses to work. Proverbs 21;25

    All hard work brings a profit,but mere talk leads only to poverty. Proverbs 14;23

    Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. Proverbs 10;4

    The Leech has two daughters “Give, Give” they cry.


    Poverty has been around for eons there always will be poor people around but their not helped by the goverment or leftists liberal groups becuase many companies were started by poor,penniless people Such as WALMART and its founder SAM WALTON

  8. As usual, not one mention of thanks to God.


  9. What socialists and liberals don’t understand is that sometimes the best way to help someone is NOT to help them. But rather to step back and allow them to help themselves.

  10. Amazing. Last night I listened to Lucas and Willie for several hours!
    Great minds…

  11. I have read numerous places that conservatives give much more to charity than libtards do. If that is true we need to stop giving so much to help the “poor”. Personally I have quit giving to any charity. I received a phone call last week from some group wanting to know if I wanted to donate any household goods to them the holidays. I was told they’d even pick it up at my house and distribute it to the poor. I told the lady since the poor voted for obambie, she needed to call obambie for help not me. I didn’t have shit to give her. Boy was she having a fit when I hung up the phone.

    Giving is done out of sympathy. Sometimes sympathy is just that, and other times it’s just a work between spit and syphilis in the dictionary. My view of sympathy for the poor since the election is the latter.

    • LOL love the response you gave that caller…

      I have always been amazed at the hypocrisy of those on the left who claim that they are so concerned about the poor… especially the hollyweird types. They make tens of millions of dollars but give so little in proportion to their income compared to us evil conservatives. Does anyone ever bother to ask why the left is either very wealthy or very poor? Seems to me that some like building a plantation and others like living on it.

      If liberals are truly concerned about the poor why not give ALL income over 250K ( Obamas threshold for wealth ) to the poor? It’s easy for someone who makes tens of millions per year to give 35%..that kind of money insulates them from the consequencs of thier liberal ideology. Kinda like pastey white liberals in lily white Maine telling folks in Georgia how to tolerate blacks…

      Lets cap THEIR wealth at 250K and let Obama raise taxes on that and see how “benevolent” they feel. They are only generous with OTHER PEOPLES money… why doesn’t anyone on the right call them out on that loudly and repeatedly? Why don’t any of the pundits, talking heads and politicians on the right specifically target the individual who are the loudest mouths of advocacy for “spreading the wealth” and illuminate their hypocrisy on every news cycle…Conservatives just don’t know how to fight.. or they dont have the guts for it

    • I have to go along with that. By economic indicators I’m poor. I’m not in the middle class. I’m below it. But I have what I need, and some of what I want. Not bad. I have zero tolerance for street bums who come up and ask for money. They make me angry for some reason. I got panhandled just this morning. The guy saw me coming out of a coffee shop and started to approach me.

      I know the rap, and I am not fooled by some scraggly scumbag giving me a hearty greeting, and telling me what a nice day it is. I got in my car and the bum just stood in front of it looking at me. The thought that comes to mind in that situation is, ‘do you think I owe you something you f***ing piece of shit’?

      Anyway, I’ll help someone who wants to help themselves, but professional bums can rot in the gutter where they allowed themselves to go.

  12. Obama sucks!!!!

  13. I was coming out of a chik fil-a drive thru one day when a black lady approached my car and asked if I would give her money to buy some food. I don’t give cash to peddlers b/c I know they’ll immediately go buy crack or a 40 of wild Irish rose with it, so I told her I would be glad to go back thru the drive thru and get her some chik fil-a. She asked if I would go over to Taco Bell b/c she didn’t like CFA!! Long story short: she didn’t get anything from me. But I think that says a lot about “poor” people in America. In other countries I’ve visited poor people are starving. In America there is an obesity problem among the lowest classes….

    • Santa Monica, turkey day..
      Near the ‘free food give away’…2 fat Black wimmen and 2 White, skid row
      yuk…..do the ‘free bes’ help any of them in the end?

    I have an interesting little factoid for you AWD. I know the Dead Kennedys, and was romantically involved with their guitarist and founder East Bay Ray for several years in the 80s. I never did a stage dive, though :)

  15. “You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
    (Adrian Rogers, 1931-2005)


    Obama is a communists and Joe McCarthy warned us about these red monsters

  17. Karl Williams says:

    Wealth distribution is a bell curve. There will always be “the poor” because when the average income inflates to $1million, as it will, there will be “poor” people that only get (probably not earn) $350K. So, the more thing change the more they stay the same. No matter what number is “rich” there will always be those “poor” that have less. It is not possible to change this truth, unless Barry is successful and each person in the world gets their fair (read equal) share. But I guarantee that Barry and his Czars will get a more equal share than you and I.

  18. Federal social-welfare programs have dramatically WORSENED the plight of poor Americans. Their unconstitutionality aside, the results of these programs are crimes against humanity. A private charity with even remotely similar results would be shut down in a heartbeat. Instead, despite all the data, we continue to be bamboozled into the need for more money, thereby making the tragedy evermore tragic. But the Dems get evermore votes, the media continue to ignore the data, so what’s the problem?

    There are a couple of scholarly treatments worth checking out: “Never Enough: America’s Limitless Welfare State” by William Voegeli. And a related work entitled “Losing Ground” by Charles Murray that traces the evolution of social welfare programs between 1950 and 1980. Both works provide reams of data showing how these programs have made the problem worse, primarily through destruction of the family by enabling, and unwittingly encouraging, single-motherhood.

  19. I don’t know where you live but I’m the west coast version of you. I live in the shit hole known as the Peoples Republic of California. I’m surrounded by liberal shit and have watched the state go into the toilet all under democrap rule. You want to see freebies for the lazy, come here.. keep up the good work. I’m glad I found you

      California Drivers are Twice as Likely to be High Than Drunk

      By Esther Zuckerman | November 20, 2012

      Drunk drivers are not the biggest problem on California’s roads according to a new survey from the California Office of Traffic Safety. Out of 1,300 drivers who were tested in nine cities on Friday and Saturday nights, 14 percent were found to have drugs in their system, while only 7.3 percent were found with alcohol. Marijuana was slightly more prevalent than alcohol, found in 7.4 percent of drivers…

      And by “slightly more prevalent” we mean almost twice as prevalent.

      The official line from the director of the Office of Traffic Safety is that the “results reinforce our belief that driving after consuming potentially impairing drugs is a serious and growing problem.” …

      Which is why the state has allowed the farce of medical marijuana and basically stopped enforcing any laws against non-medical marijuana.

      But, at least in the case of marijuana, which is now legalized in some states, there have been questions as to just how dangerous driving stoned is. Maia Szalavitz at Time writes that “Research suggests that stoned users on the road are not as impaired as those who drink alcohol are, and there is some evidence that those who use marijuana, particularly for medical purposes, may be staying off the roads anyway.” …

      Sure they are. By the way, the same research also states: “Driving within three hours of smoking pot is associated with a near doubling of the risk of fatal crashes.”

      But we don’t want to bring anybody down, man.


    • Michael, welcome to the AWD family!


  20. The democraps don’t help the less fortunate, they use them over and over again. Every election cycle they come offering free this and free that only to vanish after the election and in another fours years they reappear.. liberals have a mental disorder because eventually liberalism ends in your own demise

  21. Derrill E. Miller says:

    I am an 85 year old gentleman who worked for 50 years plus, raised 3 children, it was not easy. If O’Baddy Boy thinks he is right wait until judgement hits him where it hurts. Thanksgiving with no mention of God, what kind of so-called Christian is that. He is a muslim through and through, he wants only to ruin tis great country and as long as he and the Dimwit Dems can steal, buy and plunder votes by giving food stamps, telephones etc., he will be elected for an eternity. If there is any hope for these the good old United States, it had better happen soon, because my Bible tells me time is running out fast. The likes of the statews that put him back in the white House did so by gifts, threatening, and down right lies. I know if OBamacare is fully passed, I at (85) might as well die, because i will never receive any help for my health, I pray every day, God keep me well or take me home, so far its all on God’s side. I understand how he was reelected. because people want something for nothing and as long as this DIP hands it out they will never work!

    • Mr. Miller,

      You sir, are a wise man. It is sad to see that this country has gone from a “can do” attitude to one of “what can you do for me?”. Currently, I am working on a project in Texas for a major oil company where I am away from my wife on average for two to three weeks and work an average of 16 hours a day (sometimes I am up for 24 hours). It is disheartening to me that I have to pay taxes (business taxes in my case) so some lazy welfare rat can enjoy the fruits of my labor. It appears to me that in so many cases, these welfare rats are here illegally. You are certainly right about the probable intent of God being left out of our “fearless leader’s” so-called Thanksgiving message. I appreciate your post and am most grateful for it. God bless you sir.

      Best regards,


  22. What we face is Communism. The Democratic Party, RINO’s, any and everyone who go by the labels of Liberal, Progressive, Socialist, Anarchist, etc.. Homo’s, PETA, Feminism, the poor, and atheists are used by the Communists as a tool to further their agenda.

    • This “president” of ours, this jumped-up community organizer, embodies all our country’s sins, writ large. If he didn’t exist, the devil would have had to invent him.

      The virtue of thrift, or what Christians of 200 years ago called temperance, is practically extinct among us. So naturally our president and worst lady run through untold millions of dollars of public money—your money, my money—simply entertaining themselves. No extravagance is too large for them, no shiny bauble too expensive. After all, they’re not paying for it. We are.

      Do we lie? We have a liar in the White House. Do we judge anyone by the color of his skin? We have a world-class bigot and race-hustler to lord it over us. Do we take the trouble to make well-informed decisions, based on immutable moral standards, as to public policy? Or are we lackadaisical, easily-distracted, and given to folly? The latter describes to a T this regime’s approach to foreign policy.

      Are we thieves? Do we have a clear conscience as to theft, as long as the actual robbery is done by the government, and some of the loot lands in our laps? We have a grand thief in the White House. He and his handlers have stolen our country out from under us.

      Do we covet our neighbor’s goods? Our president preaches class warfare day and night, converting the sin of envy into the virtue of redistribution—or, to give mere theft an even higher-sounding name, of “social justice.”


  23. Cinnamon Girl says:

    This issue hits close to home for me because every single day as I walk into town (carless as I am), I am accosted by the same “homeless” panhandlers. All of them are drug addicts, which is sad but also infuriating. Where do they get the money for drugs? From tax-free donations they receive in the form of a dime here, a quarter there, a dollar there, from liberal tourists and locals who feel better when they give a bum some coin.

    News flash: most homeless are not homeless. They have homes and they leave them daily to work the streets, making anywhere from $50-$300 a day tax free. They buy booze and drugs with the money and get food given to them by restaurants or people buying the food from restaurants to give to them, or they occasionally go into a food pantry or soup kitchen to fortify themselves just enough to keep drinking and drugging.

    Sure, this is a sad existence but they chose this existence.

    Now, you and I are hard-working, clean individuals for the most part who are forced through deductions from our paychecks to feed, medicate, house, and educate every free-loader known to man, and the burden of this is getting so heavy that many of us have become truly homeless and hungry. But, who will help us? Nobody, unless our skin is of a certain color or if we are otherwise liberally inclined to be okay with mooching off the government when or if we are allowed to qualify for anything.

    This is turning into a rant but I’m also damn tired of being found guilty of virtual murder if I don’t personally see to the care of so many millions and millions who are capable of taking care of themselves. Meanwhile, my charitable nature is still there and I give clothes and sometimes my talents to worthy causes like privately-run battered women’s shelters and children’s disease research institutes, but it’s running thin even there.

    America is upside down. Right is wrong. Good is bad. Taking is vaunted over giving. To work hard for what you earn is stupid and to sit at home or panhandle or both is smart. Students demand free college and when they don’t get it, they don’t pay their loans and suffer no punishment for doing so. I could go on and on.

    Then, I have to hear bullhockey from people like Obama and really all Dems about how I must give, give, give. Yet, those same preachers are the least charitable of all people when it comes to giving of themselves. They don’t give their money and they don’t give them time. Instead, they work hard to ensure that WE do against our will and then try to take more by influencing our will.

    My s.o. was once homeless. He was also denied food stamps and other benefits despite having dependents and having served his country in the Gulf War. This was twenty years ago. Through friends and family he pulled out of the hole he was in. But if we don’t stop “giving” to the fake poor all of us will become truly poor and then what? I shudder to think…

  24. David Nighswander says:

    For the past month I’ve been driving home from work down Cedar Street in Lansing. I pass the corner of Saginaw and Cedar and there is usually one or two people standing there with a sign. “Unemployed need help”
    Hell I even gave one of the guys a couple bucks. Then I thought what the hell am I doing.
    I’m concerned about poor people who can’t get a job because the Boss won’t hire you. How am I helping you to improve yourself. I give you 2 dollars. You learn to stand there and beg for a living.
    You now work for the government. You get government food, you live in government housing, you drive a government car, your kids are in government daycare, now you use a government phone to call your friends back at home and send money back to your family so they can move here.
    What will happen when we decide we can’t afford to support you anymore. Since we are the government we will shut down the mill. No food, no house, no car, no daycare, no phone. Wait a minute no phone to call home? Might as well go home now.
    I don’t mean South America either. Move back to the little hick towns that everyone moved to the city to get away from. Your welfare checks will still keep coming. Raise chickens and hogs, they’ll eat anything and the first two make 10 more. Then you can feed yourself. Sell what you don’t eat. Houses in the country are falling down everyone moved to town. Save up 10 welfare checks and buy or rent one. Get a 1000 dollar beater on payments and use it. Home school the kids if you can, they ride the bus if you can’t. You’ll be too busy to call anyone and you won’t want another mouth to feed.
    Problem solved.
    Your food is right there for the fixing. The house is as good as your willing to make it. You’re supporting yourself and your family.

    Congratulations you’re now a Republican.

    • Cinnamon Girl says:

      Very well put, David.

      I hate being a downer but did you know that today one cannot simply, in most places including rural areas, raise one’s own food? The USDA is on a rampage stopping small-scale home farming all over the place. Their argument is that if someone doesn’t perfectly breed, raise, and then slaughter and cook meat that their health becomes a public safety issue. That used to be true only when you were dealing with those who chose to sell their goods. Now they’re concentrating on what one raises for their own consumption, even and especially meat and milk, but also fruits and vegetables. The REAL reason why the government ever gets involved is two-fold but one in the same: to be our nanny and to make a buck doing so.

      One of the things that we freedom-lovers will have to fight today and in the future is this attempt at control over the most basic thing in life: physical sustenance. They control our water already—thoroughly and with absolute ruthlessness. Now, they’re going after our food.

      As for the rest of your points you’re dead-on. Saving up for buying a home or renting one, home-schooling the kids, and being too busy to be on the phone are precisely what the moochers need.

      I’ve thought about going completely off the grid for my retirement. But, I’m at a loss as to where to go to escape from the heavy hand of Big Brother…

  27. Another problem with government dependents in America is that they have more kids than responsible, working people do. So the problem will only get worse.

  28. AWD,I don’t think I’ve read so many great,intelligent,worthy comments as I have on this latest blog of yours. I wanted to add some of my own but they were already touched on.I wish there were 51% of us in America.Anyway,I got me some Willie,Elvis,Kristofferson,Buddy Holly and a little group of young ladies from down your way called the Cactus Cuties singing the best version of the Star Spangled Banner I’ve ever heard,they’re from Lubbock,give em a listen.These are on my youtube playlist.

    Keep up the great articles,I don’t think I can live through another 4 years of this POS.

  29. Everyone needs to realize that we are headed towards a civil war whether we like it or not

    • Quartier LeBlanc says:

      You sir, got it in one. This is where this is headed.

    • When it does come around, interesting in that it might be the first such conflict pitting the producers and contributors against the moochers and their enablers. U.S. Civil War, Russian Civil War, Spanish Civil War…those type of conflicts seem far removed from a conflagration that will be brought on by the terminally lazy and indolent along with their crypto-Marxist masters. I guess that’s postmodernism for you.

  30. I just stuck in a DVD and saw the ‘Piracy is not a victimless crime’ bit at the beginning.
    Funny isn’t it?
    The same Hollywierd socialists who love seeing the government steal from hard working Americans to subsidise the lazy are crying a river about the money being ‘stolen’ from them by people copying their crappy movies and even worse music.
    In a further tidbit of delicious irony; the only times I have ever seen pirated movies being sold, it was being done by a member of some protected group or another, (unidentified youths -to use the newsy name) many of whom are the same ones robbing the taxpayers for one form of welfare or another.

    I built homes and did other contracting work, mainly in the Colorado High Country -some of it two miles above sea level- for eleven years. Suffering daily to earn my living, from sunburns that left scars, to frostbite, sawn fingers, nailed through hands, feet, and once -thanks to a co-worker- in the chest with a 14d from a Hitachi. I saw my co workers loose fingers and toes, and one walked sideways off the end of a scaffold that was pump jacked 15 feet off the ground, taking me and the ladder I was on for a ride that ended with a drill bit from my toolbags ripping him open to the bone from ribs to armpit.
    Meanwhile, we had to pay 30% or more of our income to the IRS. We had to pay the Social Security, and then Match that payment for ourselves and any employees. Yearly taxes on truck AND tools (as an asset) insurance, (oh and don’t bother trying to get life insurance for a reasonable price as a construction worker, your life expectancy is too short.) In a nutshell, it was a lot of Top Ramen and an Elk for meat.
    Then what happened?
    Illegal aliens -who paid none of those taxes, soc. sec. etc. came in and drove almost everyone out of business by undercutting any bid we could do better than starve on by anywhere from 15 to 30%.
    The taxes we paid and they didn’t drove us out of business in Colorado.
    So, we moved out of state, and I took a job with a slip-shod outfit somewhere else. I continued to pay my taxes, while the moochers continued to sit in their climate controlled homes on their couches, playing their x-boxes, and enjoying the lifestyle my work and taxes helped pay for, rapidly breeding up more welfare moochers while we tried to save up for one.
    That job ended up costing me my right leg. (And on the Saturday after Thanksgiving too…)
    But not my pride, not my work ethic, and not my continuing TAXES.
    If the Government is God, then the Taxpayers are Job.
    And why?
    I don’t consider myself stupid, yet…
    Why kill ourselves to provide freebies. Why did I take the iron road of ruin instead of the plush cushions of welfare?
    Who is John Galt?

    Dam. I’m sorry that was so long.

  31. ‘ Studies show liberals give less of their own money away than Ebeneezer Scrooge. Like Margaret Thatcher said, “socialists eventually run out of other people’s money to spend.”

    Haha..there is a book “Hell to Pay”, the tale of Hillary C.
    Their charity in Arkansas, donating old clothes and taking a write off!
    Roseann Barr [comic and presidential candidate], made a million one year,
    gave no $ to charity….and on and on it goes.

The Executive and Legislative Bodies of Our Government have been doing the SAME for the LAST 4 YEARS. If The Government can do it…WHY CAN’T…We The People?”. This is NOT a TAX REVOLT…. Just a easing of the Monetary Burden that has been pressed on The Good People of America… and that pending agressive increase in Taxes, along with a abundance of Statutes and Laws proffered by UN-ELECTED CZARS, and NOT PASSED THROUGH CONGRESS, …”WILL DESTROY THE BUDGETTING RESOURCES of any of our citizenry.

  34. You Know I wouldn’t have a problem with Republicans if you guys wasn’t so damn hateful hey it is what it is .But now I say three cheers to the party that has reached a new low full of bible freaks who thinks its ok to force their sick twisted religious beliefs on the American people .Soon Todd Akin will have his own radio talk show explaining how a women’s body shuts down during rape. Not only you guys have a problem with skin color, but with women as well. Bravo you guys have earned a name for yourselves The American Talibans ,you guys are no different than them women haters.

    • Well, let me see if I can interpret your rant..

    I’m sick of this propaganda for food stamps.

    Yesterday a young African American male came in to my store and bought two large platters of cooked crab. Practically emptied the case. He wanted them steamed with seasoning.

    When he found out at the front counter that he could not pay for these with EBT food stamps (heated foods must pay sales tax and are not applicable), he left the store and sent them back. Of course, we had to throw them away.

    We try to mention that the steamed seafood is taxed and we have a sign to that effect, but we are not supposed to mention food stamps because a customer might accuse of us prejudice.

    I personally had a couple of customers – African American females with children in the cart – order a lot of sea food for a birthday party. They asked us to cook lobster tail, shrimp, and a lot of crab legs. One was bossy. She had me hold up each crab so she could choose the best ones in the case, which is fine. She sent back the cooked shrimp because she didn’t see enough butter on it. We filled their order and wished them a good day.

    From what I hear, they had a tantrum when they found out that EBT does not cover hot food. An embarrassed cashier returned their order. One of the women came back and bought chilled crab, which CAN be paid for with food stamps. She didn’t mention her previous order. The steamed seafood was in full view, next to the trash can.

    At minimum wage, I cannot afford to purchase many of these products. These people use food stamps to pay for top dollar items. The ones that do it often enough learn to buy it cold and precooked. Nobody is living off a dollar a meal – which is possible with rice, beans,and healthy dried foods.

    Somehow, I am required to pay money from my meager income to support these moochers?


  38. Socialism proceeds from Marx’s premise that property is theft. The unequal distribution of property is a function of the existing power structure. Fair distribution of property can only be accomplished by changing the power structure to favor the have-not classes. This redistribution of wealth is accomplished through the tax system. Rich people already have “enough money”, and anything in excess of “enough” should be taxed away and given to those who don’t have “enough money”. That is the definition of the equitable society, assuming you are an idiot who has never read an economics textbook that wasn’t written by a marxist. I can promise you that Obama has never sat through a real economics class and passed a test on the subject matter.

    Liberals can be broken down into one of several categories:
    ~Thus explaining the Mitt & Ann situation you talked about.

    ►Full-blown communists who see people as things to manipulate for power.
    ◄The evil. They hate America, jealous of white people, and anyone who opposes them. Deliberately want to destroy anything for the sake of satisfaction and pleasure.
    ♣Defiant, who will naturally do the opposite of what is good and right.
    ♥Naive do-gooders who want to help people, even to their detriment.
    ♦The brainwashed, to react exactly as they are trained to do, mob mentality w/o understanding even why they are protesting.
    ๐The mentally ill. Homosexuals, homeless, criminals, addicts, anyone who is unable to control their own behavior, needing the care, forgiveness, excuse-making, and benevolence liberalism offers.
    ♠The stupid/selfish who will do whatever you want, as long as they get something in return, are envious of others, greedy, back-biting.

    Also, it’s no coincidence, that the people who are liberal and their willing accomplices, fall into 1 of the 7 categories of deadly sins:—And the democrats cater to them all!



  40. Those who are truely disabled, I’ll help. Same for those who are elderly and worked during their lives. Same for kids.
    That said, re everyone else, the coyotes gotta eat too….starve.

  42. In truth, liberals display a boundless enthusiasm for spending other people’s money; they will happily canonize any pocket-picking politician who lavishes other people’s hard-won earnings on liberal causes. But when it comes to individual self-sacrifice for the good of others, liberals are America’s pre-eminent skinflints.

    The “generosity index” published by the Catalogue for Philanthropy has demonstrated that red states have consistently donated far more to non-profit philanthropies than have the liberal-leaning blue states. Arthur C. Brooks, the author of Who Really Cares?, a book about charitable donation, has presented the proof that households headed by conservatives give almost a third more to charities than do households dominated by liberals. A study of charitable donation sponsored by Google pegged the superior generosity of conservatives over liberals at fifty percent.

    Any true intellectual will change his opinions based on revealed truths. “When I started doing research on charity,” Mr. Brooks tells us, “I expected to find that political liberals – who, I believed, genuinely cared more about others than conservatives did – would turn out to be the most privately charitable people. So when my early findings led me to the opposite conclusion, I assumed I had made some sort of technical error. I re-ran analyses. I got new data. Nothing worked. In the end, I had no option but to change my views.”

    In a mad scramble to conceal their tightwad souls, liberals tried to tarnish conservative generosity by tossing out the falsehood that conservatives only appeared to be more generous because they lavished their money on sparkling local mega-churches, while the poor were ignored. The data dispute this slander.

    When all religious giving is stripped away, liberals gain only a razor thin edge over conservatives. (Google data.) When donors are ranked according to the percentage of their total income given to the needy, conservatives swamp liberals even when giving to secular causes. What’s more, even as liberals pout about conservative donations to churches, a whacking percentage of liberal philanthropy ends up in the pockets of big-city art museums, symphony orchestras, and upper-crust schools and universities that cater to the tastes of the privileged, which only serves to increase social inequality. In any case, no museum ever fed a sick and starving minority child in desperate need of specialized surgery. (I just couldn’t resist saying that.)

    Conservatives are also far more likely to give their personal time to charitable causes than are liberals; people in red states are more likely to volunteer for good causes. Conservatives are far more likely to donate their own blood to the needy than are liberals. After crunching the data, Arthur Brooks concluded that if liberals and “moderates” could gin up as much public spirit as conservatives, then the American emergency blood supply would suddenly increase by a whopping 45 percent.

    Liberals refuse to even measure up to their muddled Marxist ideal of “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” As the data reveal, the working poor donate a higher percentage of their income to charity than do the liberal middle class. By this standard, Mississippi is far more generous than New York.
