Welfare is the organized public or private social services for the assistance of disadvantaged groups. Aid could include general Welfare payments, health care through Medicaid, food stamps, special payments for pregnant women and young mothers, and federal and state housing benefits. The Welfare system in the United States began in the 1930s, during the Great Depression. Opponents of Welfare argue that it affects work incentives.

Looking at the numbers above it is painfully obvious why no one  on welfare would want to go out and get a job.

It is commonly known that there are welfare recipients collecting benefits for three consecutive generations and yet there are no exact numbers found after an extensive search of the internet for those statistics.

One has to wonder why?

Welfare Spending

I think this chart explains all too well which President is responsible for the biggest increase in Welfare recipients in U. S. history.

Can you say: Redistribution of Wealth?

Barack Obama’s Great Entitlement Society by the Numbers

Barack Obama’s Great Entitlement Society

or the

Redistribution of Wealth?

The percentages those on welfare by race.

As of 2011  they are listed below in descending order by percentage.
Black-39.8%
White-38.8%
Hispanic-15.7%
Other-3.3%
Asian-2.4%

To break down these numbers, we look at how many Whites are in the population as a WHOLE.  If Blacks make up less 14% of the population and are almost 40% of all recipients, then they represent about 2.5 times their actual population.

Since Whites are over 50% of the total US pop., they represent less than their overall piece of the pie, population-wise.

Hispanics are at least 15% of the general population, so they take only about as much as what their population represents.

Why am I writing this?

Because I am tired of the misrepresentations on this issue.

I read there are many claiming that more Whites are on welfare than Blacks (not true, in terms of raw numbers), yet not accounting for the fact that there are over 4X as many Whites in this country than Blacks!

In statistics, you cannot go by mere numbers.

Only if the playing field is exactly equal, which it rarely is!
This thread was started, not to be racist, but to keep it real.

After all, there are some legitimate reasons for Blacks to be on welfare more than Whites. 

The worst thing anyone can do is be in denial

The Epic Battle of Good vs Evil in America

I remember a simpler time in America not so long ago when we as a people had a common respect and reverence for our rich Heritage and Traditions.  One might say it was the Best of Times as we all prospered and held fast those time honored Values that made this the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.  We were united in the belief that Freedom was a God given right to all men and women and worked hard to insure that we became that veryIdeal.  We were the last best hope for all of mankind on planet Earth.

Then Came the Break Down of the American Family

Americans began to enjoy the Fruits of their Labor and worked hard to live a better life.  We moved to the Suburbs and began to enjoy the luxuries afforded us by our own prosperity.  Soon we found ourselves preoccupied with the cares of our success and buried ourselves in our technology to the point with which we forgot who we were and began living life as a video game escaping the realities of the World around us.  Not wanting to leave anyone behind we struggle to bring equality to all in the form of Social Justice only to find ourselves allowing the few to rule the many.  Our success caused us to have such a belief in ourselves that we soon found our need for God beginning to diminish in our daily lives. We allowed our Schools to take from us our Parental Rights and gave them the power to teach our children those things which defied the natural order of our traditional family values. 

We have produced a new generation of Americans that are now Selfless, Godless, and Morally Decayed.  We have only ourselves to blame and reversing this trend is rapidly becoming the new Epic Battle for which America must fight.

America, Your Too Young To Die

Stand up America and fight for what is right.  Stand up and let your voice be heard.  Unless we reverse this Progressive Socialism that has gripped our Country all might be lost and we may find ourselves facing a thousand years of darkness.

To Those of Us Born

1925 – 1970 :
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
1930s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s!!

First, we survived being born to Mothers who may have smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets, and, when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps, not helmets, on our heads.

As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..

Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid  Soda made with real white sugar. And we weren’t overweight.

WHY?

Because we were always outside playing…that’s why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day and, we were OKAY..

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Play Stations, Nintendo and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVDs, no surround-sound or CDs, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth, and there were no lawsuits from those accidents.

We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse.

We ate worms, and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and although we were told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.

Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment.
Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These Generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, and inventors ever.

The past 50 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..

We had Freedom, Failure, Success and Responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

If you are one of those born
Between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the Lawyers and the Government Regulated so much of our lives for our own good.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it ?

The Quote of the Month

By Jay Leno:

“With Hurricanes, Tornados, Fires out of Control, Mud Slides, Flooding, Severe Thunderstorms tearing up the Country from one end to another, and with the threat of Bird Flu and Terrorist Attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us…go ahead and move on to Obama’s World

Besides, your probably a Liberal

Meet President Obama’s Worst Nightmare

America Deserves Better then what we have seen from President Obama. As bad as things were they have most certainly become worse under Barack Obama.  Much Worse!  Now we are seeing the true colors of this President in his Slanderous, Vile, and Vulgar Attack Ad’s against Mitt Romney, Christianity, the Constitution and all things American.

It is time to stop him in his tracks. This November Vote for Real Change and Return America to the Fundamentals which made her the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.

After all, aren’t we all Sick and Tired of Obama’s Vile and Vulgar Attacks on Our American Way of Life?

ANY QUESTIONS?

The Audacity of the Dope: You didn’t become Successful on your Own!

The effects of Cocaine can clearly be seen in a President without a Teleprompter. Can there be any question?

Someone, Please, Please, Please Drug Test this President…..

Although many Americans still wonder if Barack Obama is really from Kenya I have to ask this question after his most recent comment on American Success:

Mr. President, What Planet are you from?

What we are seeing is the real Obama without his Teleprompter.  We are hearing his real thoughts and feelings about America and what it was that made this the Greatest Nation the World has ever known. 

Without his Teleprompter Obama is nothing more than…..

Perhaps Vice President Joe Biden was right

ANY QUESTIONS ?

Atheists Gather at National Mall for First Ever “Reason Rally” against a God whom they say does not Exist! Huh?

Ya just can’t make this stuff up folks.  Atheists are just plain determined to remove a God whom they say does not exist from every area of American Life. Perhaps the most Intelligent Man of our Century could shed some “Light” on this subject for us:

Perhaps the Atheists are Worshiping the God of Charles Darwin but haven’t “Reasoned” that out for themselves as yet?

Let’s take a moment and hear it from Albert Einstein in his own words shall we:

For me personally I did not need Albert Einstein to convince me of the Existence of God.

Faith Comes by Hearing and that by Hearing the Word of God

God said it, I believe it, and that Settles it!
