I find the narrative that America is too urban/free loading hilarious. Don't they realize they could have just as easily won if they weren't so anti-woman, anti-gay, pro religion, and pro mega wealthy.

But that's not the problem; it's free loading blacks and Mexicans.

Bingo. There are more white "welfare queens" in Alabama collecting checks and spending them on Meth and shit than there are African American ones doing the same (crack instead of meth obvi).

Why run your boyfriend over with a Jeep because he didn't vote against Obama... when you can just kill yourself!

Man apparently kills himself over Obama re-election

Quote:
A Key West man who told his partner that "if Barack gets re-elected, I'm not going to be around" was found dead on Nov. 8, with the words "F--- Obama!" scrawled on his will and two empty prescription bottles nearby.

Henry Hamilton, 64, owner of Tropical Tan off Duval Street, was "very upset about the election results," his partner Michael Cossey told Police Officer Anna Dykes.

Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said a cause of death is awaiting autopsy results from the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office but said, "There's absolutely no evidence of foul play."

According to Dykes' report, Cossey returned to the South Roosevelt Boulevard condo he shared with Hamilton after a late night of playing cards with friends and fell asleep on the couch around 6 a.m.

A friend of Hamilton had been worried about him and had a standing request to police to make welfare checks. Officer Pablo Rodriguez did just that and when he went to the condo, he woke up Cossey, prompting the discovery of Hamilton's body in the bedroom.

Dykes reported finding two empty prescription bottles, one for Xanax and one for Seroquel, used to treat anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively.

Cossey told police Hamilton "has been very stressed about his business," and the last time they had spoken was "when we watched the election results" on Nov. 6.

President Obama, a Democrat, defeated Republican challenger Mitt Romney to win a second four-year term.

How is that not relevant? There are more blacks on welfare relative to population. It's like saying that more people eat apples when there is a banana shortage.

What don't you comprehend? The talking point is he's speaking to free loading minorities which won him the race, while in fact most the people getting handouts are not part of the demographic they lost.

we do need to crack down on welfare, and we need to start by ending the all of the handouts and free lunches that giant corporations and rich people receive. far more govt dollars are used for handouts for rich white people compared to the amount of money spent on social programs poor minorities.


the true welfare cows are not poor black people, the true welfare cows are the corporate elite. the amount of tax dollars that are redistributed to rich people and corporations is far more than the amount we spend feeding and sheltering the poor.

That's fine. But when you're just going to eliminate tax breaks for them, does that not hurt the people working for them?

Corporate profits are the highest in history right now. Trickle down isn't working. Time to try something else.

Maybe because companies don't want to expand because they will get hit with extra taxes. The free stuff has a cost attached to it. Whether you kick it down the road or not, it still burdens us. We'll have to pay extra for SS. Companies have to pay extra for Obamacare, not to mention normal families. Redistribution doesn't work either. It's time to try something else.

Companies are not expanding because there isn't demand in nationally or globally. So, instead of creating more dead money why not invest in infrastructure and lower future costs????
