Warren looks like she just needs to let her hair down and shed be hawt

If I were a politician id be like Alan Grayson who was too much of a snarky punk to even keep his seat I luv him

He's really the biggest loss of 2016

She's very VERY ****able. You can tell she cums easily, too. Well, with a little dick control. I'd make her ***. Hard. I'm beating off right now, by the way.

Just look at Obama, Bush Jr., and Clinton. Some fine dudes right there. I'm sure that helped with diplomacy and ****. Who wants to make deals with uggos?

Other uggos?

My point is that I agree with you on needing to final a solution for Welfare fraud. Ny state does a good job of locking people up that they end up catching but it seems a bit more lax in other areas that you guys have stories from.

Currently other alternatives have been reaching their max because of how much the Republicans have kept pushing food stamp cuts. So people end up having to go to churches that give out food. Food pantries are pulling the load that the government isn't currently meeting. Do you think the food stamp program should be gutted even more just so that a few people gaming the system doesn't get away with it while people that need it are harmed in the process? Rhetorical question. I know how you feel about the two separate groups and I don't need you to repeat it. I am listening to what you are saying.

They do but I believe it varies from state to state which is weird because Bill Clinton put that into place that you either need to be looking for work or go to work sites to do jobs that union workers are getting good benefits for while it pays for assistance. In New York they are called WEP workers and corporations and businesses take advantage of them so much. It is basically free labor for them.

Or usually they have a job and still need assistance

So much this.

Of all the people who disagree with me you are the only one yet to actually say anything, Briks has already contributed more in two posts than you have in 10 pages, elph and I found some areas where we agreed, and DJ was nice to talk to (still waiting to hear back).. When are you going to actually make a post worth considering?

I was down in DC marching for green jobs and climate change along with unions. I was pretty busy.

But the biggest abusers are the uber wealthy elite(government officials included) and it's their theft that mandates poverty ultimately

We fight for the scraps that fall from their mouth

Yep we fight for those trickle down scraps.

Okay so Trump is working on the tax code now but they have a lot of details to flesh out. They want to close off a lot of the loophole deductions and stick to a basic three tier percentage. I really don't agree with the upper bracket only having to pay 15%. How are you going to decrease it that much while still spending so much on the military budget. Someone needs to work on their math skills. He was trying to work on the repeal of ACA because it is tied to taxes with the penalties then work on the tax code which would lead to working on infrastructure. It has to be done in that order.

What I think is, despite the fact that I don't think it's that big of an issue, you guys just don't want to accept that undeserving people leach off of welfare at a much higher rate than you have acknowledged because it goes against your views. The idea of the "welfare queen" is not false. They exist. A lot of them. Like I pointed out. 4 out of the 5 people I knew receiving government assistance did not need it. And I know I'm not alone. Being somebody who fully supports government assistance for people like Chula's son, I can't just dance around this fact or ignore it or dismiss it because that's just duplicitous. Instead, my come back is I'd much rather have these lazy people sit on their ass collecting the scraps that we fight for rather than watch people who can't support themselves starve. It's ideal to fix it though. So more people like my sister in law could receive it while people like my dad could get cut off. It'll never be perfect, life will never be completely fair, and people just have to deal with that. Throw a tantrum all you want but I take much much more pride in myself knowing that I earn my scraps and have no problem with some of my scraps going towards the leaches IF I know it will also take care of somebody like Chula's son.

Edit: Also, to disprove stereotypes, the biggest welfare queen I know is a white supremacist Obama hater who named one of their many kids Aryan.
