    Definitely on the increase since 08. More people on foodstamps than are employed. And he’s encouraging more.

    Here is where I have a problem with your position. NOT that any president or administration was ever pure as the driven snow BUT this particular president in the campaign to secure the office the first time pointed out the flaws and vowed to change them. Do you remember the statement that (he) would change the way business was done in DC? Well? Did he?

    The only change was to the recipients of the government largesse and some of them remain the same.

    Lobbyists still abound and the money still flows.

    Banks and financial institutions are still to big to fail.

    Jobs – the laser like focus included – are still missing from the equation.

    While the numbers say unemployment is improving slightly, the reason is that fewer people are actually looking for work today.

    All welfare programs are increasing in participation rate.

    You tell me, just what exactly has he changed?

    The rich and the corporations suck up more government money than ANYONE! Pay no taxes, get subsidized, hide money offshore, pay less than your secretary when you do pay taxes. Social Security and Medicare are not handouts, rather they are the trickle down Raygun promised us.

    1. SS isn’t intended as a pension, but merely an account you pay into for INSURANCE you won’t starve to death, and it doesn’t pay that much. (but does need adjustment for newer actuarial facts!)

    2.Interesting that “creative thinking” is brought up by the clan of no thinking OR creativity! Which, glad there’s never any insulting comments from that same group, based on falacies.

    Well, speaking from the left, I believe that work is good for people and that everyone who can work should work. And that there should be work for everyone who can work. And if there is work for everyone who can work, almost everyone will work. (There are always a few louts, but really, not that many.) But somehow capitalism never seems able to provide work for everyone. The business cycle is built into capitalism, so periodically you’re going to have a panic, as they used to say, and a lot of people are going to be out of work even though they want to work. You can tell they want to work because they line up hoping to find a job, and eventually when the economy recovers, they do find jobs. So when the economy has tanked and is taking its sweet time to create more jobs, I’m inclined to blame the system rather than individuals.

    Let no truth be untwisted. How do you answer the old question, are you better off than last year? How about 4 years ago? In the words of an old country song ,“Who are you gonna blame this time”?

    The military sucks up as much money as it can.
    .
    Previously , the maximum annual pension was based on an officer’s pay at 26 years of service. Now, a four-star officer retiring in 2011 with 38 years’ experience would get a yearly pension of about $219,600, a jump of $84,000, or 63% beyond what was once allowed. A three-star officer with 35 years’ experience would get about $169,200 a year, up about $39,000, or 30%.

    Well said. And I am so tired of the faux righties attacking the victims.
