Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. Whats the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25.00 an hour.

Why am I not surprised at SC? A while back I did some contract stuff for DSS statewide. 90% of Google maps were right on locating their offices. The 10% were off by miles.
I learned really fast that everyone in those counties knew where to go.
And I’ll bet that doesn’t include the parents getting crazy checks for their childrens’ ADD paid for out of the Social Security Trust Fund — not out of welfare funds.
The next logical step is to organize the welfare clients into political cadres, and to make the amount of their payments somewhat dependent on that type of community “service.”
More are figuring it out each day.
How much longer can the game last?
And until 2010, Maine was pretty much controlled by the Rats and Rhinos. After the 2012 elections the Rhinos are back in control of both house of the legislature.
And if everyone making around $30 an hour and below knew this and acted on it, it would destroy the country in short order.
this country is so doomed
Not surprising, when I’ve had many potential new hires (factory work, central Kentucky) that they can “make more” by staying at home instead of working. Largely a generational thing, more prevalent in the under-25 year old crowd than any other group, from my experience. A whole generation, lazy to the bone.
A whole generation, lazy to the bone.That give me and idea.
I was at the check-out in Kroger the other day, behind a woman “paying” for her groceries with a welfare check (WIC) and an EBT card (welfare). She had on nice brand-name clothes, jewelry, a nice cell phone, expensive shoes, etc. I looked like a bag lady compared to her! guess I have to go work to pay for her groceries. P_ssed me off!
There aren’t many people around here making anywhere near that.
The simple solution is to disenfranchise the welfare recipient. If you collect welfare in the prior 4 years then you loose your voting rights. Once disenfranchised the political will to waste this money will be gone.
While we’re at it, “Four dead in O-Hi-O” needs to be updated to “Four Dead in Ben-Gha-Zi”...
$30 an hour?!? Heck with a college education I’m making $9. There isn’t much more here, though.
SC has a large population of Holder’s people.
First, quit accepting welfare: pull your kids out of public school. Then, cut your debts. Cut up the plastic. Cut the cable. Return the second car. Sign your mortgaged house back to the lender. Quit the second job.
Then quit the first one. If you still have a car loan, surrender that car too, and buy one for cash if you can’t live without one. Reexamine your insurance policies, pay as little as possible. Forget restaurants, vacations, movies, toys. Shut off lights and quit using a/c and dishwashers. Cut, cut, cut. Cut your own hair while you’re at it.
You will not only survive, you will be able to hold up your head and encourage others to do likewise. You will not be supporting the government you claim to loathe. You will not be working to spare moochers the effort of working. You will not be working to pay the salaries of looters and tyrants — and baby killers. You can last longer without your money than they can, without your money.
It wouldn’t be forever. It wouldn’t even be a year. It wouldn’t be bloody, you don’t have to shoot anyone, you won’t get arrested.
You love America? You love liberty? Call the IRS and ask them how much you can earn without having to file. Even if you already know. Then, start cutting and don’t stop until you get to that number.
It’s that simple.
The Civil War will be nasty since the Banksters control the Corporate Media and the Statists control the police and military. Plus they have millions of freeloaders and useful idiots on their side who absolutely hate the Makers. But for the Makers its fight or continue to be a slave to the Takers.
