Welfare of all kinds

If you want to stop corporate subsidies I am all for that, but do not think for one minute that welfare subsidies are not a major drain on us also. Wall Street has the "too big to fail" regulatory system from the government that enables them to behave badly knowing there is a pot of $36 billion to bail them out on an ongoing basis.

Food stamps $75billion in 2011, corporate subsidies $154 billion planned for 2013, wars $6trillion over the last 10 years. But Obamacare is going to push 85 million Americans onto Medicaid which will increase to $800 billion by 2018 Fed & State combined.  

Yeah subsidies are bad but it's the wars that are really killing us. But neither side want to talk about that cost except the Libertarians. Politicians that is. The whole system sucks. 

You may think at least the individual welfare is helping people but is it?  Poverty has not decreased ever during any of these programs.  If anything, many of them are planned to make it difficult for anyone to get off a program once they are on and then we have generational victims.

The biggest victim is the American taxpayer suffering from all of the above.

People are waking up to what your extremist personas represent. I'm not fooled and the others are not either.

After your little friend did his part at LAX, the nation is waking up to the danger you represent. Oath keepers, constitutionalists, NWO fear mongers, fiat money fears, and all of your other fear mongering is not fooling anyone. You're starting to come unhinged with your extremist friends.

Cling to your guns and bibles? It's time to put the lipstick on you babe. You're not foolin anyone.

By the way, after Ciancia did his thing, your site got quiet. Something to ponder.

Auntie Em said...

Really MJ? Don't worry, this site is fine. And the LAX shooter, is that who you are talking about? I haven't seen the reaction you are referring to. If anything, people are finally waking up to mental health issues being the problem, NOT gun owners.

So those who embrace the Constitution - namely what it stands for and what brought about its existence - are fear-mongering radical extremists. Maybe so. Maybe those colonials who set off the biggest fight ever for freedom and release from oppression were fear-mongering radical extremists. I guess I never really considered it from that perspective. How can I be so narrow-minded, so damned ignorant? Help me Ma - help me get better, please? Tell me more stuff about the bad people, pleeeaaassse?

Mother Jones said...


You forgot about racist. Your constitution established slaves and Native Americans worth 3/5ths a white man.

You're a fear-mongering radical racist extremist. Just using your words and helping you understand that document you claim to know. Go back and cling to your bibles and guns.

shuttindown said...

Thanks Ma. Actually, radical was my word - the rest are yours. Oh, someone told me that it was the democrats who enforced that 3/5 thingy in one way or another well through the 19th and 20th centuries, along with lots of other prejudicial treatment - that may or may not exist to this very day in the thin veil of "poor poor pitiful downtrodden people - come to me and let me help you defeat the oppressors".
I don't know...does this sound right to you? Surely there is not an entire demographic slice that could fall prey to such transparent solicitations - is there? By the way, keep educating me - I am starting to feel really smart! I think I can beat Algernon tomorrow! :)

And now that Harry Reid has done today what he should have done years ago, we can build momentum to drive the country forward for constructive change. It's time that the batty tea partiers get theirs.

Repubes need to stop their whining. Wait till the shoe is on the other foot? Really???? This nation has awakened to who the loonies are in Washington and now the majority can do what's best for our democracy.

Like I told you guys before. Our nation is changing and your old fashioned racist attitudes are on the way out.

shuttindown said...

Wow! That's quite a list of accomplishments [sic] Ma. You must all be so proud. And you should know that we're all trying to be better people and conquer our racist tendencies. Why, the first thing I'll do from now on is make note of a candidate's skin color or ethnic background and make sure I support them no matter their qualifications - like you non-racist guys do.
Oh, I haven't beat Algernon yet, but I'm getting close! He's white you know, and I think the institute doctors are giving him extra brain pills because of his color. Damn those dirty racists!

Mama Mia

This lady from the group that says we should shut down our foreign embassy in the Vatican to consolidate with the Italian embassy to avoid another Banghazi mishap.

That's just like saying that we should confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens because we can't have criminals possessing firearms illegally, having obtained them illegally, in the commission of a crime.


Mother Jones said...

Which redneck lost his stupid little dog? Trying to sink your teeth into a point? You're always pointless.

Mother Jones said...

And now the rednecks further their backward cause. I'm feeling better since the new spokesman for the white old man's club, GOP, came out to speak. Duck Dynasty is a the perfect picture of what you people are! You're such a backward group of throw backs!!!

Auntie Em said...

You're an idiot. Never watched Duck Dynasty and there is nothing on this blog to justify anything you just said. But it does point to you not believing in free speech.

Mother Jones,

Interesting. So you back LBGT and GLAAD about Mr. Robertson's remarks as being violent, homophobic, and hateful? I read the GQ article. Mr. Robertson stated he believed in loving and tolerating people with differing views, though his religious beliefs dictated to him that he should behave a certain way, because he believed it to be a sin.

I get it, being liberal means intolerance and hate toward those with different views. Being Christian means being tolerant and loving to those who may not share your beliefs.

Given the trend of school shooters to be liberals, the people with the truly violent, intolerant, and hate are the liberals, LBGT, and GLAAD. Just going with the facts here. Looks like liberalism is a mental disease. Hope you signed up for Obamacare. Oops! Looks like coverage for mental illness will be a problem there!
