    How can a picture of an opinion be a lie?

    The Democrats give minorities a handout rather than a hand up.
    At least by Bennett’s cartoon the Republicans are giving them a job.

    Nailed it!
    And interesting that Enoki seems to feel that forcing people into low-paid jobs serving the 1% is a good thing. Explains a lot.
    Some of us believe in equality before the law.

    Wow! They’ve gotten better. The servant’s entrance used to be in the back along the alley. No more muddy shoes for me!

    And you prefer them to be on generational / perpetual welfare instead? It is better they are being paid a wage to work for someone and add value to society than it is for them just to take and offer nothing in return.
    After all, people on long term welfare are more likely to have progeny on long term welfare as well as become criminals.

    It is interesting to note that Obama, a Progressive Democrat since becoming President has:
    Made poverty a growth industry.
    Has lowered the median US household income average 4.7%.
    Has had the lowest employment / highest unemployment rates since the 1950’s.
    Has increased the gap between rich and poor to its highest level in decades.
    Basically, by giving handouts and increasing government Obama has done exactly the opposite of what he claims to be trying to do. Yet, Progressives want to blame all this on the Republicans….

    The idea that welfare and health care lead to dependence is not based on any actual evidence. It’s just an excuse to try to balance the budget on the backs of the poor, because the rich are too powerful.

    Actually it is based on evidence ARod. In the US about a quarter of welfare recipents are dependent as defined by the Department of Health and Human Services. RE:
    Indicator 1: Degree of Dependence, which can be measured by the percentage of total income from means-tested benefits. If greater than 50%, the recipient of welfare is considered to be dependent on it for the purposes of official statistics.
    Indicator 2: Receipt of Means-Tested Assistance and Labor Force Attachment, or what percentage of recipients are in families with different degrees of labor force participation.
    Indicator 3: Rates of Receipt of Means-Tested Assistance, or the percentage of the population receiving TANF, food stamps, and SSI.
    Indicator 4: Rates of Participation in Means-Tested Assistance Programs, or the percentage of people eligible for welfare benefits who are actually claiming them.
    Indicator 5: Multiple Program Receipt, or the percentage of recipients who are receiving at least two of TANF, food stamps, or SSI.
    Indicator 6: Dependence Transitions, which breaks down recipients by demographic characteristics and the level of income that welfare benefits represented for them in previous years.
    Indicator 7: Program Spell Duration, or for how long recipients draw the three means-tested benefits.
    Indicator 8: Welfare Spell Duration with No Labor Force Attachment, which measures how long recipients with no one working in their family remain on welfare.
    Indicator 9: Long Term Receipt, which breaks down spells on TANF by how long a person has been in receipt.
    Indicator 10: Events Associated with the Beginning and Ending of Program Spells, such as an increase in personal or household income, marriage, children no longer being eligible for a benefit, and/or transfer onto other benefits.
    About 60% of those dependent are single female mothers. In addition, these represent the most persistent cases of poverty, most likely to have children that grow up uneducated and likely to become criminals, and basically all-around are worse off than their married counterparts.

    I haven’t lived in the US for more than twenty years now, so I don’t know what the welfare system is like these days. Could someone give me a rundown, or perhaps a good link that summarizes the situation? Personally, I would prefer a system that gets people working (while accepting that some few people really can’t work). My hunch is that capitalism is not able to provide decent jobs for everyone.

    It is interesting that Bennett didn’t look at the house and the senate. There are more minorities represented in the Republican party than in the DemoTAXocrat party. Check it out.

    Therefore, Bennett is showing his stupidity and racism again.
