My point was, Hugo, that if you get 11 million dollars in bonuses, you have 0 right to complain that the people under you get food stamps because they can't afford to eat.

I guess ya never heard of the 1st Amendment.

I wasn't speaking legally. He has the right to call them all of bunch of cocksuckers, if he so chose.

I was saying his complaints would be asinine because he made many times his salary in bonuses, an amount that is itself asinine. But what can you do, eh?

People that are on food stamps are bums. Case closed.

I don't agree with that, but it's not a factual point that can be proved or disproved, so we're at a stalemate.

Yes, you may continue to be a commie sucking off the government tit.

Welfare recipients should be drug tested to receive benefits. Most people I have ever known who received food stamps did not need them. They were drug addicts, or simply screwing the system because they wanted to keep their brand new minivans (registered under a relatives name of course).

There are some families that do need it. Those ones usually go without.

The ones who receive and lie about other incomes, etc are thieves as far as I'm concerned.

Don't even get me started on unemployment benefits lasting over 2-1/2 years, seriously! I have a neighbor Drunk Dave, who has been collecting unemployment at a huge rate for over 2-1/2 years. He hasn't looked for a job, he has however, made it to the bar everyday and got himself a dui on our tax dollars. WTF.

Someone here mentioned California as a state to watch for our future. Right on there. I've never seen so much overpopulation in my life, I hate the West Coast. They give everything to illegals then wonder why their money has run out? Brilliant!

For the life of me, I cannot understand the out-of-control spending. The only answer I can come up with is: Maybe some in Washington aren't worried about preparing for tommorrow because they know there will be no tommorrow soon enough!

I work at one of the local Wal-Mart Supercenters, and I see people who've never worked a day in their lives come in and spend their food stamps on sh*t you can barely consider "food", besides that it's edible (cookies, snack cakes, etc). It's bullshit, and it's annoying.

And yes, Unemployment is ridiculous. We keep hiring new people, and I see new people in places I've shopped at/ate at/etc. Jobs are out there. And of the ones desperate to find a job, what I've seen/heard from some is that they get more money on Unemployment than they would working at like McDonalds or something. So they stay on Unemployment. And then the economy dies.

Also, California is far too liberal for its own good :P
