    I know this.

    On the other hand there are a huge amount of people who can work and buy their own food but refuse to because there is not maximum on drawing food stamps.

    They are government benefit lifers.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I don't think we are totally on different pages here. I agree that there are people who are on the system long-term who can definately work (when economic times are better than this.) However, with an unemployment now over 8% with no end in sight, you can't deny that there is definately a need to help those who are TEMPORARILY unemployed NOW.

    This job loss has nothing to do with outsourcing... It has to do with crappy long term policies and a collapsing economy, not because its shipping jobs oversees, but because the economy as it is had been unsustainable for a very long time.

    Capitalism is to blame for all this.. Thats what got out of hand, peoples greed.. In the end everything just wasnt sustainable and now capitalism has to beg socialism to be able to survive.

    But what could "socialism" do without the capital created by "capitalism?"

    Thats why I like hybrid systems.. Capitalism alone is just worthless. Capitalism with socialism is progress.

    Capitalism-Socialism-Communism is something that could work out eventually.. Possibly the ONLY thing that can ever work in the long term.

    It's your BS policies that are failing. Wall Street is already making their opinions known about Obama's policies. What's he doing about it. Nothing. The worst economy in years is being helped into ruin by your man.
