I seriously feel sickened my this. Truly, truly sad when hard working people save and do the right thing and don't ask for help or handouts, and they just keep getting more of the same dicking, while someone how has [b] 3[/b] KIDS and, my guess is, no husband, is getting the finer things in life, because.......well shit, because she has a sob story I guess. Just sickening.

If the total amount of money being paid out is unchanged, should we care whether it's being used for rent or for mortgages?

Welcome to Socialism. This is just another reason never to vote for the Dems. I know there are probably quite a few women out there with 3-4 kids, who through no fault of their own got stuck with a deadbeat husband and are now paying the price. But I also know there are quite a few able bodied single men and women getting section 8 benefits, because there are many of them living in apartments not very far from where I live. So, what do you do? Do you make these women work, in which case we pay for day care? What is the solution?
Link Posted: 7/25/2001 1:44:43 PM EST
Yes, we have a real problem. But I think your plan to keep your income low is the wrong answer, I think. Try to make as much money as possible, then use every available legal means to KEEP it. There are many books out there to help you. Start your own corporation, Get rental property, donate to charity, etc. I certainly like your spirit, however you are being unnecessarily self destructive. As a group, the more money we make, the more influence we have to reclaim this county from the sheeple. Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down!

City of Buffalo has been on fed funded housing projects for YEARS......whether group hsg or individual..........what ultimately happens is that the beautiful brand-new houses (or apartments)........that they have "earned"...have a life expectacy of less than 20 years, only due to neglegt and abuse of the tenants/nieghborhood.....nothing new in the big cities.....it has made working people sick for a long long time.....the fed dumps billions and billions into the welfare ridden areas (n.y. state-one of the worst) and the politicians sing praises for themselves, as if it was something THEY made happen....they even have thier own police unit, so that incidents in the "new" housing areas can be kept quiet.......politics....BLAHHHH.....[puke]
Link Posted: 7/25/2001 2:22:31 PM EST
Why quit? So you can fall farther down the food chain and be like those you despise? Maybe get a house next to the same woman? Better to think like my accountant does,"You are paying taxes cause you are making money". Right on! Money that keeps me in a house that I do pay for, food on my table, clothes on my wife and college for my kid. I am proud that I can work and have some skills and don't need a handout. Let the slackers take pride in their "entitlements" until the inevitable happens: The "system" will collapse under the weight of it's obligations to those who will not work to produce. The voters will (finally) become enraged to the point that our govenrment is seriously reformed and those who have worked very hard and not succumbed to the socialist mindest will find themselves in a very different world. Forget the "armed revolution' nuts. Serious social and political change will only happen when the burden of unfair taxation is too great to bear and enough people regain a sense of values, morals and common sense, then get motivated enough about it to get themselves elected and start changing things. Don't drop out! Take your passion for doing the the right thing and make it productive!

I hear ya Garandshooter. I am pissed off every day that I drive by the new low level housing they are building near my house, at the expense of over $46 million of OUR money, to replace the highrise housing that they just had to tear down. Wasn't welfare and public housing supposed to fix all the poor's problems. The point is, they are pouring money into a hole that they have been pouring money into for years and it doesn't help. The cruelest thing that we can do is allow people to survive on the public teet. Liberals call it compassion when all it is is slavery to the bureaucracy. By the way, if the system was going to come to a halt because people wouldn't stand the taxation and would vote it out, it would have happened a long time ago. People are lazy and greedy. Now all they want to do is call the guy on late night T.V. with the question mark suit that hawks the "Free Money Through Government Programs" book. Lazy and greedy and looking for their next piece of government cheese.

I have a good one for you Garand Shooter We treat patients at my Radiation Oncology practice from wide range of backgrounds, with all types of insurance. The Medicaid patients get picked up as a group and delivered to my office, free of charge for treatment, thanks to the state. Our Medicare(hard working individuals,who paid for their benefits) have to find a way to our office on their own, no help from the State. Here is a bizarre fact: The Medicare patients almost always show up for treatment. While the Medicaid patients tend to miss many appointments. We routinely have Mcaid patients extend treatment 2 weeks for reasons other than medical. But, what drives me crazy is that the Mcaid patient has a sense of entitlement that the other, paying, patients don't have.

I got the solution... Why dont we tell them that they have to get a job OMG!!!! They have say 2 months to get it. And for say 3 months we pay for the kiddy care. After that they are on there own. I don't mind meeting them halfway but I aint gonna give them a free ride. So its rather simple tell them get a job or else social services comes and takes away your kids and we stop paying for you. You have a right to live and you have a right to do what you think is right. Well if you think its right for you to live of off me you are wrong. If you can't pull your own wieght ask for some help but I won't pull it for you. Simple as that. There are however certain curcumstances where this would not work but for most they should be able to do it. Basically they have to work or else they get nothing. If that means they gotta work 70 hours so be it. It isn't fair to me to pay yourway as well as mine.

Mother in law used to rent to one of these people, where 3/4 of the rent was paid by.....of all things....a "corporation"...(never DID figure that one)....the burden of housing is then placed on the owner of the property, wherein about $1500-$2000 of "improvements" must take place annually, or the cash would stop. Then what? You can`t evict the person, so once you let them in, they have you by the balls!....best part was, she initially let the guy rent, because she knew him in the past and felt that she wanted to help....luckily. it turned out good, but others with a similar situation are not always so fortunate....some actually perform illegal remodeling to the premises....try to stop that!....then, again, you CANNOT evict them, at least not without expensive and time consuming counsel, and the bottom line is, IF you rent to one of these people, it is going to be an EXPENSIVE, AGGRAVATING, experience.....[puke]

Initially the right to vote was only granted to land owners . I think there was a point to this . How many land owners will vote for a liberal who is going to tax them to death and take away their rights as property owners ? The liberal gets many votes from people on the entitlement programs . It becomes a vicious circle . Give someone welfare or social security , or public housing or free medical care and they will give their vote to the politician that enacted the freebie Gov't program . More entitlements , more votes More Votes , more entitlements . Seniors are one of the biggest groups of active voters . They are also one of the biggest groups that receive entitlement programs .I'm not bashing seniors but I sure as hell don't want to pay for all their God damn Prescriptions . All these Social Programs sound great . Free medical care . Free housing . Free food . They all sound great until it comes time to pay the bill . Do the math . Somebody has to pay for all the so called freebies . Turns out they really aren't FREE after all .

We don't really have all the information to say that the total money paid out is actually the same. What about loan guarantees? Nothing laid out initially, but what about when some defaults occur?

How about when they sell their taxpayer funded home for a profit? Do the proceeds return to the state/fed? Or do they get to keep the profit? Most homes increase in value when sold.
Link Posted: 7/25/2001 8:25:58 PM EST
This is simply not a "Free country", it is a democracy. you're just now realizing this? we are property of the state. You have a right to a "free" home,a right to "free" healt-care and a right to a job, but not a right to fruits of your own labour. The answer to this problem is simple, but implementing it into existance is far from simple. The IRS should be abolished on the federal level. go back to when the federal govt had to have state ratification for money. keep state taxes and add sales taxes and user fees too boot (also to help fund the military, wich should be large enought to fight a war on two fronts) [url]www.fairtax.org[/url] also abolishing the federal tax code would leagalize selective fire weapons (U.S. tax code 26 if im not mistaken) [:D] and take the teeth out of the ATF which is part of the treasury dept. of course i'm just a "far-lib", but hey! thats what the founding fathers put in the constituion. they must be "far-libs" too [whacko] dumass libertoon

You're missing a big part of the equation: The liberals get the votes of the people who receive the entitlements, PLUS the votes of the people who are hired to administer the entitlement programs. And then there are all the jobs created to support the bureaucracy, such as the professors in the schools of social work and the union construction workers hired to build the housing projects. Look at who's fighting to maintain the status quo in public education. Is it the parents of poor children? No, it's the members of the public school bureaucracy who get paid whether the children learn anything or not.

I have a mother-out-law that is like this girl(she is not a woman). And why, we, the people of this nation is taking this. A helping hand is one thing but a hand out is another. I have never ask for a hand out or a hand up when I was in need, I guess my pride was to big to ask for it. Just my .02 worth.

Rule #1 should be - If you are female, and apply for ANY Government aide, you should be pumped so full of Norplant that your eyes bug out. The first time you miss your scheduled appointment to be "pumped up" with your second dose, you are automatically cut off. End of story, your benefits are now history. Flame on. Call me a right wing sexist pig, but that's how it should be.
