Come on Terry, you and I probably both suspect it is the first move into making it universal in a few years, but cutting it back as an entitlement. It is all in the wording and perception. Once everyone believes it an entitlement, the change will be easy. Remember all the upset folks commenting here when the Government entities first started calling it an entitlement, and it should be cut?
Now I wonder, seeing as how Holder signed off on the warrents he told Congress he knew nothing about, will he be charged with Contempt of Congress, be charged with perjury and jailed just like any normal Citizen would be?
Say Sis, have you noticed Social Security is now Officially Titled a Federal Benefit and Entitlement? They changed the printing on the few checks that are still issued, and on their paperwork. It isn't called a Retirement anymore. Wonder if our President knows, or is really behind that one?
Most won't even control their children. Without strict laws of responsibility, people have no incentive to be responsible. The old reliance on individual responsibility is gone. Everyone and everything else is responsible, never the actual culprit. I can remember back in the early Sixties when New York City cracked down on Truent students by threatening their parents with fines and jail. Many a son got an escort to school by a Parent, and I even saw one get handcuffed to a radiator and the Teacher handed the key. Personal responsibility has got to be brought to the forefront in both Parents and Dog owners.
OK, take that Dog that has been certified to detect explosives and firearms for a walk where ever these folks gather. Then convict those found in posession under Federal statute and we will be rid of them for a manditory ten on the Federal dime instead of our County and State money.
I hate to say it, but between Foxes biting children in school yards, dog attacks of all sorts and robberies in general. I believe those that don't have a CCW need to stay in their car or home where they might be safe. Those that do have a CCW and are proficient in the weapon they carry had best load up with safety ammo and protect themselves and their fellow citizens. There aren't enough Police to handle all these situations.
Better put, "A dry well doesn't produce enough water to raise a crop." There has to be some point where the Government will get out of the Charity Business due to a lack of funding.
From some exposure, and having people ask if we are hiring on the phone and only showing up looking for a job when they know we aren't, I'd say it is a lot worse than 1.5%. People have become professional about gaming the various systems. There is even word that agency staffers are telling them how to do it so they receive max benefits and the individual's job is safe due to numbers of clients. I have been told they aren't breaking any laws by telling folks how to answer questionaires, afterall they aren't the ones filling them out and signing them. Kind of like all the A.D.D and respitory problems. Sure seems to be an exceptionally large percentage of the Benefits group suffer from these.
Yes, had she been charged it would have necessitated the City or County taking custody of and providing for the child. Funny how that works out isn't it?
No one wants to bite the bullet and lose their income or job while the loans are repaid. I say income, because the first cuts should be Charity when there is no money to support it. That would be those on the Public Dole. The jobs should be the cushy governmental positions that are way overpaid, but it won't happen. The average working employee would take the hit because those cushy job people are the ones we are dumb enough to allow to make the call.
