Why Go To Work? Sit Home, Smoke Weed And Chill Out...
It's critical before you start commenting below to listen to this video about Lucy, You see Lucy is a societal leech and blood sucker. This attitude is more prevalent than our bleeding heart liberals may think it is. I've spent some time down the hoods on occasion so have a fair scope of how it seems to work. Now before you go shouting "racist" let me say that "hoods" can consist of all races. But they are there.
So listen to this carefully and absorb what the attitude is.
This is hard to swallow for the many millions of Americans who spend half of their lives slaving away making ends meet for their families while many millions more (yes, millions) sit on the porch waiting for Uncle Sugar to dole out their next monthly benefits. Take a trip down to the hood sometime and keep your eyes open while you're down there.
The whole welfare system has been corrupted and is a fast and loose system. Why should she work she asks? The woman hasn't even done the math of how much she is scamming the rest of us for. Do you ever wonder why all these emergency funds and subsidizes for this, that and the other aren't more closely monitored to require the recipients to purchase what they need? Lucy has no intention of getting off welfare so the help she is getting she thinks of as a right.
The sad fact is that a system has been developed with no cross checks and known to be rife with fraud, waste and abuse is allowed to continue pretty well unchecked. Obama has made it worse rather than better. Clinton instituted a loose system of checks that welfare recipients had to be doing something to better there plight than be a Lucy. Obama has thrown that to the wind. Democratic politicians are all for it because that is a large part of their voter base - people who don't want to work.
What is wrong with developing a system where you give a person a hand up in order to allow them to become a contributing member of society? It's easier to develop a system where people quickly learn that it is easier to do nothing but put your hand out? but just relax because you're working for them. Whatchu talking about Frog? Yes, you are going to work and the government happily deducts too much money from your paycheck to subsidize the Lucy's of the world.
Obama is a big one for the redistribution of wealth. He believes in punishing the producers to accommodate the moochers. That why I call politicians the looters of our society. They are essentially confiscating our money in order to redistribute it to those who have no desire to work.
I'm a Texan and that radio interview was done in Austin, maybe one of the only liberal Meccas in this great state. She likes that free money. In her own words she "gets to sit home… I get to go visit my friends all day… I even get to smoke weed…" There is no consideration on her part at whose expense she is allowed this life style. Or these choice tidbits? "Me and people that I know that are illegal immigrants that don’t contribute to society, we still gonna get paid." and "Our check’s gonna come in the mail every month… and it’s gonna be on time… and we get subsidized housing… we even get presents delivered for our kids on Christmas… Why should I work?"
It's a scary thought but maybe the AFL-CIO is thinking of unionizing these non-contributors. Lucy mocks the contributors of society because she isn't stupid enough to work in essence. "Ya’ll get the benefit of saying “oh, look at me, I’m a better person, but when ya’ll sit at home behind ya’lls 'I’m a better person'… we the ones gettin’ paid!"
I am concerned about our federal government promoting the type of value system Lucy displays here. It is promoting such conduct with things like "Obamaphones." Lucy seems proud that she has one. Can you really blame her she asks?
An few facts:
- "Americans who were recipients of means-tested government benefits in 2011 outnumbered year-round full-time workers, according to data released in October by the Census Bureau."
- "There were 108,592,000 people who fit the description of a means-tested benefit recipient in the fourth quarter of 2011 were 82,457,000 people in households receiving Medicaid; 49,073,000 beneficiaries of food stamps; 20,223,000 on Supplemental Security Income; 23,228,000 in the Women, Infants and Children program; 13,433,000 in public or subsidized rental housing; and 5,854,000 in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program."
- Among that number there were "people getting free or reduced-price lunch or breakfast, state-administered supplemental security income and means-tested veterans pensions.
Means testing is done in a welfare system consisting of 79 federal programs. Those programs provide cash, housing SNAP benefits, medical care, all forms of social services, training and target education to poor and low-income folks. The cost in 2011 was approximately $927 billion and it has grown since then to well over a trillion dollars.
What we seem to have done is develop this huge Nanny State that the Lucy's of the world thrive upon. Now according to Obama "we aren't spending lavishly on a whole bunch of social programs." What planet is the dude living on? It's over a trillion now and growing. I'd hate to see what Obama calls "lavish spending." Wait! I just have to look at the money the Obama's spend on just vacations on our dime and I get a clearer picture.
Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

Finally we may begin to see rational people start dealing with the irrational members of society who have become to believe that there is a free lunch. Hats off to the state of Louisiana.
