You said it right there MM. The "us" are those thousands of lowlifes out there who are content to take, take, take from "uncle sugar" and then go out and buy top of the line groceries with their food stamps and take their welfare checks to have their nails done, hair colored, pinkie rings monogrammed, cars detailed and tricked out and who then complain that society isn't giving them a fair deal. It REALLY pi$$es me off!!


Me too. But it does make them easy to pick out!

My ancestors left countries with inadequate work to support themselves and some later moved from states with no work to states with more work. And that was after slavery ended and after the Indian wars for the smart @$$es out there.

Not everybody can work at the dinner or gas station down at the exit. The sawmill's and paper factories can only provide so much work and the car factory is three counties over.

All you hero's, go tell these people, face to face that they are worthless bums. Or are you Just a bunch of gutless preachers.
How about those of us who offer them work for which they will be paid every Friday and they tell us no because they want to be paid cash daily and besides we have to withold FICA and taxes? The only guys we have to turn away are the illegal aliens who want to work.

"let them eat cake"

Those are the loosers that should get a kick in the aSSSSSSSSS. I have only neg feelings for such people. Unforunatly many have children. Title of the thread. If the State (taxpayers) have to pay for the cost of the children then lets end the cycle. Remove the children from these home.

Don't know of anyone who can't find a job? Move to one of the major inner cities and meet all you can handle.

I'm sorry, Biscuit, but America is very badly screwed up, and if we don't change it very soon, it is going to be gone forever.
I think we are already at the beginning of the end as a world power. Too many freeloaders and not enough workerbees. At least you are older. I am guessing somewhere in your late 50s-mid 60s and got more of the golden time.

The people employed by Citicorp have my sympathy and, as I have already stated, I am not against people in their situation taking help from the government so long as they are looking for a way to pay their own bills and not milking an already stressed system. There's a huge difference in the two.
