    I would be all for the removal of "food stamps" and the return of "commodities". I believe this would lower alot of fraud and misuse right off. If anyone remembers the old government issued food stuffs they were nasty but would sustain a person. Most people chose them out of necessity and not as a government freebie like the do with food stamps.

    With you on this if we can add all public employees..... they make way too much money and have way too expensive benefits for what they produce, which is nothing.

    Yeah I can go with that. The higher-ups don't make more money (and often less than their private sector counterparts), but the lowest part of the food chain is very overpaid.

    Arnie did it in Cali. I hope the rest of the states follow suit.

    Yeah I could got with lowering government employees pay all around.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Just a thought on our, so called, public servants. If they are our servants then why do they take all of the best parking spots at public buildings such as city halls (reserved for mister big fuk)?

    Same reason they take 4 times as many paid days off each year than private sector employees take.... unless we are talking banks.

    Obviously, like banks, they don’t have a big enough work load to need to work a 5 day week.

    WOW… imagine that …. A conservative, a libertarian, and two liberals agreeing on something.
