If you think that's bad, you should see how Wall Street execs act when they get chances to do stuff like get involved with insider trading, create Ponzi schemes, or create false values on stocks for their own profit.

Don't pretend that it's just the "freeloaders" who are ready to cheat the system. Drop in the bucket compared to bankers.

After all corporations are people too.
Equally shameful, and criminal. I'd definitely lock them all up equally.

I wasn't pretending anything.

Unrelated, but interesting view of how people who are given free stuff (paid for by us) appreciate the help they receive.

Anyone see the story of the EBT malfunction over the weekend? Mass chaos ensuing, because many welfare recipients had a "no limit" on their EBT card. Surprisingly #sarcasm#, many of these people who receive our money for doing nothing every month, actually took advantage of the situation, and went on mad shopping sprees.

When the glitch was corrected the stores had tons of carts abandoned in the aisles just over flowing. One lady had $700 worth of merchandise in her cart but the glitch was corrected before she got away with it, and her balance was only .49 cents.

This is unfortunate because my first thought was "******* cheats".    Of course, for every fat ***** with $700 in her cart and a balance of 49 cents, there was another woman who simply wanted to pick up baby formula.    But the natural instinct for someone like me, who believes most people are ****, is to group them as one.

We're allowed to vote.   If people would vote out the incumbents, a message can be sent.    But it won't happen because 80%, I imagine, are pressing one side of the poll regardless of the name attached to it.
When was the last time you voted for a Democrat for president or congress?
2012.   I voted for one incumbent.    He was a minority, Republican and young. 
He was a Republican. When was the last time you voted for a Democrat?
2012.   Read the goddam post.   I voted for ONE incumbent.    ****.
I don't know the party makeup of the congressional incumbents where you live.

Honestly, I'm surprised that you voted for a Democrat for Congress. Which Democrat was it?

I went with the intention of voting out all incumbents except for one.  It's fair to say I was less than well-informed.

BTW, I voted for Clinton twice.

I typically vote for a mix of both R's and D's in every election.  Depends on the office, the candidates, and the issues.
10/17/2013 9:32 AM
Yeah. But what was the congressman's name?
10/17/2013 9:36 AM
Are you confusing me with Mike?  This was BL's question to Mike yesterday.
