mittromneysdog: aerojockey: I meant entitlements by number, not by dollar. There are hundreds of entitlement programs in agriculture and other industries like construction. At least to me, these are the bad entitlements because they are subject to so much abuse. The fewer but bigger entitlements in social services aren't as bad.I see. Well, for what it's worth, sometimes those subsidies serve legitimate social purposes. Conservatives are fond of the old "why are we paying farmers to leave their fields fallow" saw. But that program exists or did exist (I don't know if it's still around) to serve real economic and ecological purposes. Not all government subsidies are bad.
The My Little Pony Killer: You said "entitlements" when what you meant was "people who actually have to work (and do a good job) for a living instead of farking everything up royally and then waiting to collect their hefty bonus." But if it makes you feel better to think that I might be jealous of the fact that you'll be one of the first up against the wall, go with it.
fredklein: mittromneysdog: Remember when Florida decided to drug test all their welfare recipients, and the testing program ended up costing more than the little money saved by kicking the tiny fraction of people off of welfare who tested positive?Um..."Of the 4,086 applicants who scheduled drug tests while the law was enforced, 108 people, or 2.6 percent, failed, most often testing positive for marijuana. About 40 people scheduled tests but canceled them"Assuming those 40 people who cancelled tests did so because they knew they'd be positive (as opposed to canceling them out of principle), that's 148 out of 4086 applicants who were on drugs, or 3.6%. With a welfare budget of "$13,659.2 million" (http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/statelocal_spending_2010FLmn), that means 3.6% = $49,291,200$50 million isn't chump change.
hdhale: HindiDiscoMonster: WhoopAssWayne: The idea that the Freeloading 47% get an equal vote in this country is just beyond ridiculous. If you make a choice not to contribute to society, then you don't get a vote in that society. [3.bp.blogspot.com image 705x471]/damn FreeloadersThey got shot at in defense of freedom, not shot at because they insist on living too close to the local crackhouse so they don't have to walk so far. They earned to right to sit on their ass. Have you?
CapeFearCadaver: I know yousa trollin', but you just reminded me of an anecdote. My sister had to tell me this one since I don't talk to them any more.My father said the same damn thing, after Mitt's double-up remarks about why he lost and around the time Pants-shiatting-Draft-Dodger said what you've so eloquently expressed.My BIL said: "I think that's a great idea, G---, people like you really should not be voting."Father gets all indignant, face growing bright red.Everyone has to remind him that his household accepts disability checks, Medicare, and Social Security.He Is The 47%.

iheartscotch: First of the month is here; you spend all of your welfare check on cigarettes, booze, drugs and junk food. Collect additional money from the government totaling $100.
Billygoat Gruff: You should move someplace cheaper and turn the lights off once in awhile
Citrate1007: Conservative logic:If it doesn't directly affect them it is an entitlement by a moocher.If it affects them then it is their god given right and the government should be giving more to them more efficiently./what a wonderful way to indoctrinate your children into your world of derp.
PanicMan: There's a Star Trek edition, right? Lets just play that.
CygnusDarius: Can I be a Romney in Monopoly?./Also, I want to use the car
vpb: I can't see the video. Do they mean entitlements as in Social Security or as in a sense of entitlement from being born rich and well connected? And how about a vulture capitalist edition? There aren't any bad squares on that one "IRS informant turned you in for your Swiss account, so you have to go for the amnesty" is as bad as it gets.
