So I would really like to understand a few things, namely why a person who publicly outlined their “plan” to avoid serving this country during a time of war that included wearing crap filled pants for several days to establish mental incapacity, and who’s only claim to fame is an obscure and extremely brief music career gets a public forum to put forward ideas that are embraced by a major political party in this country and that would disenfranchise anyone who is receiving welfare by taking away their vote.
Let’s also stop the insanity by suspending the right to vote of any American who is on welfare. Once they get off welfare and are self-sustaining, they get their right to vote restored. No American on welfare should have the right to vote for tax increases on those Americans who are working and paying taxes to support them. That’s insane. (Read More)
While you are marinating on this, also know that the sentiment to eradicate Social Security and Medicare is real and not just some tin foil hat wearing topic on an obscure message board out in the internet. Paul Ryan, who was Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential running mate has as one of his major claims to fame a budget that guts both programs and this budget has broad support in the Republican party and with some so-called democrats who’s humanity is in question.
The Ryan budget, amongst other things, proposes changing Medicare to a voucher program where people will get issued a voucher that they then can take and shop around to try and FIND medical coverage and care.
Det. Thorn: It’s people. Soylent Green is made out of people. They’re making our food out of people. Next thing they’ll be breeding us like cattle for food. You’ve gotta tell them. You’ve gotta tell them!
Hatcher: I promise, Tiger. I promise. I’ll tell the exchange.
Det. Thorn: You tell everybody. Listen to me, Hatcher. You’ve gotta tell them! Soylent Green is people! We’ve gotta stop them somehow!
What I would like to know and what no one who throws up these concepts has been able to explain is what happens to those people who are currently receiving aid to dependent children, food stamps, social security, or medicare when you gut these programs and there is nothing to help them.
What do people who have been on assistance for 10, 20 years or more who have no job skills, might be illiterate and have never had to balance a checkbook do if these programs are “gutted” or shut down completely. What happens to these people who suddenly have the rug pulled from underneath them with no means at all to find a job that will pay enough money to pay rent, buy food and transportation.
As one of the millions of Americans searching for a job with over 20 years of work experience, and unable to find employment right now, I would really like to know what people who have no work experience who are suddenly forced to go “get a job” are supposed to do when they can’t and there is no help for them in the meantime to exist?
None of the rabid purveyors of shutting all the entitlement programs in this country down has ever come forth with a clear concise answer to this question. Enormous amounts of vitriol are reserved for the ” lazy, moochers who will not take responsibility” – see Mitt Romney 47% speech to donors
I would like to say to Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Ted Nugent, Donald Trump and all the other willfully ignorant and oblivious people who claim to be Americans – and that feel like an individual without a job CHOOSES to be that way; that a person who isn’t working is LAZY; or even better that those 47% who don’t pay taxes should have their rights to vote and participate in the process of government that has a say in THEIR lives – if the direction this country is going in is not amenable to you and you are at your wits end trying to figure out how to “FIX” the direction of this country – don’t stress yourself. Follow in the footsteps of those founding fathers you seem to invoke incorrectly at the most convenient moments. Since lack of funds are not an issue for you, I suggest you pool your resources and build a ship and provision it for a long journey. Then carry your asses away from this country and go discover another country where there are people living there already. Like you did with this one. Better yet take Gingrich’s advice and take a rocket to the moon. Plenty of space up there for you, your bigoted beliefs, your intolerance and your lack of humanity for your fellow man. Kindly take your inhumanity, greed avarice and ignorance and LEAVE.
