There was a report Monday on FOX that in PA alone a single mom on welfare can get up to 82k a year in extras between the feds and the state and it is these massive freebies that are worth so much more than these women can earn that keeps them on welfare.  A great spokesman for this is the comedian, Adam Corolla -  BOR has him on his show all the time, his mother was on welfare... and he hates everything about our welfare system.

It's funny how the more the government spends to help poor people, the more of them there are.

I swear when I heard the list of their freebies rattled off to Scott Brown (filling in for BOR Monday night) my jaw dropped... hell why wouldn't all of us want to be on welfare with the list of freebies they receive?  One reason -- most of us still have pride in our own abilities and accomplishments and would be ashamed to do what those people think they deserve.

Yes, and when OPapaDoc says the rich "don't pay their fair share" the 47 million people on food stamps say "damn right!"  It's pathetic that this is what we have come to in the USA.

Sadly, that shame is something that the Obama administration and his media-education complex are trying desperately to break down.

From the land of opportunity to the empire of opportunism...

In the winter in the Summer
Don't we have fun
Times are bum and getting bummer
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer...
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
In the meantime, in between time
Ain't we got fun?
