Sherrod Brown Exposes GOP’s Motives For Deep Entitlement Cuts – ThinkProgress

As President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) continue to do battle over a fiscal cliff deal, another Ohio legislator, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), soundly rejected the idea that Republicans are truly concerned with saving public programs like Social Security and Medicare. On Monday, Brown appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to blast the Republicans’ insistence on including severe cuts in entitlement programs to avert the impending fiscal cliff. (More)


I Love It When I Hear Some White Folks Say Mitt Has Business Experience And Talk About Their Tax Dollars As If Black Folks Do Not Pay Taxes

Mitt may have business experience that meet your qualifications but one damn thing that is a FACT he has no Presidential experience because he has never been President. But the FACT that Mitt has no Presidential experience is not important to them but why is it important anyway because none of the white Presidents before “Our” current President had Presidential experience unless they served more than one term.

Damn I get so sick and tired of some white folks who talk about their tax dollars being spent for entitlements and such. Well Black folks pay taxes also so don’t make it seem as if we don’t pay taxes. Don’t attempt to make it appear that only Black folks receive entitlements. But Jon Stewart Hit The Nail On The Head When He Said, “If They Have Success, They Built It But If They Get A Break, It’s A Handout And An Entitlement.”

Jon Stewart Hit The Nail On The Head When He Said, “If They Have Success, They Built It But If They Get A Break, It’s A Handout And An Entitlement”

Response: So where are you? In the 47% or the 53% per Mitt Romney. Well!

The biggest problem with the denizens of bullshit mountain is they act like their shit don’t stink. If they have success, they built it. If they failed, the government ruined it for them. If they get a break, it’s a handout and an entitlement. It’s a baffling, willfully blind cognitive dissonance . . . – Jon Stewart

Entitlements or Bust? Daily Southerner

TARBORO — Can we imagine our founding fathers making a statement like, “First we must make a good, long list of entitlements for all our citizens,” before they wrote our Constitution or Bill Of Rights? What they did do was write a Constitution that (with a few amendments) has stood the test of time, giving the citizens of our nation a government that is the envy of the world.  The primary right we have is the right for us to pursue happiness.

Entitlements My Ass – Author Unknown But I Like This

Entitlements my ass, I paid cash for my Social Security Insurance! Just because they borrowed my money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout! Congressional benefits like free health care, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days: now that’s welfare; and they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements!

Someone please tell me what the Hell is wrong with all the people that run this country!

We’re broke and can’t help our Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.?

In recent months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, Pakistan…home to bin Laden…literally BILLIONS of DOLLARS!

Our retired seniors living on a fixed incomes receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government gives Hundreds of Billions to Foreign Countries!

They call Social Security and Medicare entitlements even though most of us have been paying for them all our working lives. And now, when its time for us to collect, the Government is running out of money. Why did the Government borrow from our Social Security in the first place?

We have many adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication, mentally ill going without treatment, etc.

Imagine if our Government gave us the same support they give the people who hate us.

Sad, isn’t it?

But 99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.

I’m part of one the 1% that Just Did.
