I could totally see GW Bush saying this too.

No you couldn't. he's a progressive who expanded the fed gov. The exact opposite of the way i live my life. you don't know me and obviously don't know half as much as you think you do.

Let's say they do have your back but the hard times is more than they can help with. What then?

LOL! You act like gov dependance is as old as the hills. Like people can"t survive without gov intervention. What if the gov crashes your economy and can't give away money people worked hard for anymore? What then? Is China gonna come bail you out? LOL!

I wonder if I could go to a bank and borrow money using my kid's future earnings as collateral.

Not dependence, safety net. I'm well aware that its a recent development in human history & I see it as a good thing.

Take their chances with friends & family, or do their best to work through it. Also, going to a different country that has a safety net would be an option for some.

See what I did there? Instead of trying to deflect, I answered your question.

I wasn't trying to deflect. i just can't understand how people blindly place thier faith in this gov whose track record is absolutely awful. Mainly because they think throwing money around solves problems. Ask the people affected by natural disasters how well the gov helped. Sandy victims in some areas still have no power and can't go home. But we made damn sure they could vote. We blamed Bush for katrina, but maybe fema is a failure that has so much money tied up in it that its now to big too fail? Ironic that they can paint themselves as a safety net when they are the cause of most of the problems we endure.

So what % of people on welfare do you think cheat the system?

What's the $ volume?

Btw I didn't bring race into this...thanks


The issue is not just the people who cheat the system. It is also those who work the system.

Those people who spend their entire lives on government assistance without once doing something themselves to better their situation.

That us the bigger issue

The same ones afforded to me. see i enjoy a hard days work, with the pride and accomplishment I feel after a job well done. I like to earn and know i desrerve all I have consumed. I would never feel the need to ask for handouts. cause I wake up everyday and ask my self what I can accomplish. And until I have achieved my goals for the day i do not rest. But thats the difference between me and most people. I don't expect life to be easy or fair. I don't think i should always get my way or everything should live forever. I persevere in the trials and tribulations of life, because I believe life never gives you more than you can handle. So I consider hardlife a compliment. But if i ever fall on hard enough times, i know my friends, family and community has got my back because of the character and reputation I have developed through years of hard-work and charitable contributions. which translates into, " i make my own opportunities!"



What happens to you if you lose your job, your friends and family and community (who by the way provides government funded support) are more concerned with paying their own mortgages, car payments, credit cards etc...Let's take it a step further, what if your situation remains the same for 6 months, a year, two years....You my friend are probably young (just guessing) haven't really gone through real struggle, and therefore your position is based on an assumption of "it can't/won't happen to me". Here is real life, their are a lot of MBA's with years of experience right now running around without jobs.........

I agree that that is an issue. Is it more of an issue than others? That is where we differ.

I think you hate lazy people....and that is completely fine. I'm not very fond of people who game the system.

McCrory approached UE completely wrong. he should not have lowered the weekly amount he should have reduced the number of weeks one could be on it.

I am not willing to punish the majority for what a minority does. Are you ok supporting the working poor....like those who provide work and services but cannot afford the rising cost of living along stagnant wages?

I am.

People were going to gnash teeth regardless.

We were taking the state further in debt.

The bill cuts the maximum weekly unemployment benefit from $535 to $350 and replaces 26 weeks of state-paid benefits with a sliding cap of 12 to 20 weeks, based on the health of North Carolina's economy. It also slightly raises unemployment insurance taxes on employers.


But what's that got to do with Obama's sequestration.
