    How is it not the truth? If the government is providing you assistance it is welfare, imho.

    It annoys me somewhat that people say they paid for themselves. That is not how the program works.

    You might want to go back the post I was responding too before you post something even more ignorant.

    Hint: You should take your own advice before you hit ENTER! LMAO

    Consider the source of the story too.

    assistance comes in many forms, section 8, ebt, snap, va (as mentioned) heating, in my state Badgercare ( no more) and a few others I can't even think of presently. Some people working two minimum wage jobs to keep up, Walmart employees on welfare because they don't pay living wages, etc, etc..

    The definition of welfare is used too broadly by both sides, which is why I mentioned "corporate welfare" in an earlier post. To me, welfare recipients are the people who get the check and the TracPhones simply because they exist. Senior SS recipients paid into SS their entire working careers. Not welfare, IMO.
    SS is welfare. Your ignorance of how SS works doesn't change the fact that SS is a form of welfare.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    Just for ****s n grins, I typed in Americans on welfare, in a Google search, and there were very few hits for left leaning media outlets, there were hits on websites like Faux Noise, American Stinker, and other Reich wing sites.

    Would I be wrong to believe this is a mid-term election year bunch of propaganda from the Reich wing?

    Pat Robertson is a flaming liberal compared to you, so maybe it's your judgement that is off?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It sort of is, Tres. What Fox did was create a deceptive headline that does not match reality. How can you not see it?
