    Does it pay to work anymore?

    I work my ass off at I wonder if it is even worth it. As last November showed us all, there are countless millions in this country sucking off of the rest of us. I paid $200 for a phone, Obama gives dems one for free. I work hard to put food on the table, he gives dems food stamps. Those of us trying to work hard seem to be having to play by a different set of rules. What gives?

    This is retarded.

    If you want to live in a cycle where you accomplish nothing with your life, and your range and scope of possibilities is intensely limited, then go for it...try to milk the system. If you actually want to go on vacations, retire, live in a nice house in a nice neighborhood, have your voice be heard on a civic level, provide a good education for your children, etc....then quit patronizingly propping up the welfare state.

    I suggest you try not working for a year and see how much you like it.

    Devil's advocate here a bit:

    Go on vacations? I see unemployed people going on vacation all the time. Retire? What's retire? Not work anymore? Check. Nice house? Point. Voice heard on a civic level? 11/6/12. Provide education? That's why we pay property taxes, right?

    Yes the losers proved on 11/6 that you don't have to contribute and can still have quite the voice on the civic level. That is my point.

    When was the last time you saw someone who has been on welfare for a long period of time go to the Bahamas?

    Retire = a (more than average) worry free lifestyle of some amount of privilege and wealth, in addition to not working and (ostensibly) never needing to work again.

    11/6/12 is a bunch of people voting for a variety of reasons for the same person. This class of people's individual and collective voices are heard nowhere near the level of say your average Mesta Park/Heritage Hills resident.

    And I said quality education...so, and no offense to any alumni...Millwood doesn't quite qualify as "quality" education. Shit, Putnam City Schools barely qualify anymore.

    I know of several welfare types that have been to the Bahamas. Of course, it is only 50 miles from here.

    I'm not trolling here. I throw in a sprinkle of hyperbole just to stir up debate.

    Which might be the definition of trolling.

    Thats not a very good job at playing devils advocat.

    You really see unemployed people going on vacation "all the time?" I dont belive it. How do you know they are (a) unemployed, and (b) going on vacation? Or are you just making a shit ton of assumptions?

    You are delusional. Proove your above statement. My hunch is that most on welfare are not registered as either dem or pub.

    You should quit your job and report back to us how you love being out of work and living off welfare in a year or so. Could be just what this board needs. Someone down in the trenches to show us how lavish the lifestyle of people on welfare is.

    Very true! Take the challenge and quit your job. Hell while on welfare you will probably make more than you are making now! Living in the projects or a trailer has to be cheaper too and it is subsidized by the government. Think of all the extra time you'll have to spend on this board or tweeting.

    Three-quarters of entitlement benefits written into law in the United States go toward the elderly or disabled. That’s according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Being elderly or disabled is not a political party.

    Welfare, section 8 housing & the ability to be on LT 24/7? I'm not sure any sane person can pass that up.

    If you really want to live it up you need to get a sex change (some sci fi stuff because you'll need to get the organs as well) and come to Australia. They still pay women per baby they have. Need to hurry up though because there is rumbling that will change soon. I think it is like 5000 bucks or so per baby.

    I am not surprised you cant actually back up the things you say with facts. Maybe you should go on another 2 month hiatus.

    Don't forget the women you meet at these government agencies that have desperation just spilling out of them. Remember Sedan Delivery? "Welfare mothers, make better lovers".

    Yeah, there was absolutely no one on welfare or on the government tit before 2008. No one. Every person in America had a job that paid in the triple digits and the unemployment rate was 0%,

    Poor people and the unemployed are all 'losers'. Life is one big game.

    palmbeachsooner don't need facts to get in the way of his statements/arguments...he says what he wants and doesn't have to back anything up with actual data

    I'm not going to prove any of the shit that you type, that's on you...yet you're too ****ing lazy to do it and you've been called out on a lot you've said in this thread without backing any of it up (bullshit, bullshit, bullshit)

    I tell you what, how about you **** and complain about Obama for the next 4 years and see how far that gets you...do you always cry a lot or is it just on this board and twitter?

    No I am NOT wrong. He had statistically full employment. It was in the 4 percent range in the early 2000s. Why would I make this up?
