This means that everyone who needs government assistance is a moocher and that safety net money is to now be sent to pay for tax cuts for the more deserving wealthy

......and we think the welfare system in THIS country is abused.  Won't look for a job because it would pay less than what they can suck off the government teat.  That's farking pathetic.
 
2013-01-27 12:07:33 AM
This is wrong and should be addressed. However, corporations take more in government handouts then all the welfare queens combine. Lets go after them first and then figure out what to do about the welfare cheats.

British cute.


What's sad is that there is no job that pays more than government benefits. $28K a year ain't much to raise a kid on.

The Sun and the Daily Mail sure report a lot on people like this. They must handsomely compensate the lazy bastards. Either that or they just feel THAT entitled that they are willing to talk about it. Maybe both. I dunno.

There aren't any jobs in Britain anyway. Cameron and Osborn have made sure of that. The UK economy is in danger of triple dipping. Even the ghouls at the IMF think there is a problem.

When the idle poor become the idle rich,
You'll never know just who is who or who is which,
Won't it be rich when everyone's poor relative becomes a Rockefellertive,
And palms no longer itch, what a switch,
When we all have ermine and plastic teeth,
How will we determine who's who underneath?
And when all your neighbors are upper class,
You won't know your Joneses from your Astors,
Let's toast the day,
The day we drink that drinkie up,
But with the little pinkie up,
The day on which, the idle poor become the idle rich.
When a rich man doesn't want to work,
He's a bon vivant, yes, he's a bon vivant,
But when a poor man doesn't want to work,
He's a loafer, he's a lounger, he's a lazy good for nothing, he's a jerk.
When a rich man loses on a horse, isn't he the sport?
Oh isn't he the sport?
But when a poor man loses on a horse,
He's a gambler, he's a spender, he's a lowlife,
He's a reason for divorce.
When a rich man chases after dames,
He's a man about town, oh, he's a man about town,
But when a poor man chases after dames,
He's a bounder, he's a rounder, he's a rotter and a lotta dirty names.
When the idle poor become the idle rich,
You'll never know just who is who or who is which,
No one will see the Irish or the Slav in you,
For when you're on Park Avenue, Cornelius and Mike look alike.

Same as it ever was, same as it ever way, same as it ever was.

I got a 46" TV a year ago on Boxing Day for $400 CDN. That size TV isn't very expensive anymore.

It's just being smart. Why work if you'll make less than what you can get for free? Only work if you can earn more than you can get by not doing anything.
 
2013-01-27 05:23:04 AM
Can the government give 'cute assistance' to that couple?

It would only leave them worse off if they didn't bother trying to advance in a company to get more money! I have my own business and currently earning less but id rather earn less than not try at all!

Seems a solution might be to not grant the dole to individuals who are not physically disabled, or are not mentally incapacitated...If you are physically and mentally able to work, even shat jobs like McDonald's, then get out there and work. Life is suffering, get busy.
This would reduce stories like this and perhaps reduce the burden on the dole system...
Or perhaps government sponsered homes should be dorm style...just one apartment building with two families per suite, this would ensure that either you are desperate for a home or encourage you to better yourself as soon as possible.

Rose: Why is Onslow reading the Financial Times?

Onslow: I like to keep an eye on the economy. A bloke in my position has to wonder how long the country can afford him. If we don't get the economy right, people like me are gonna be in trouble! It's the duty of all of us to be concerned about the shrinking pound.

Daisy: And when I married him, I thought he was just a sex symbol.

This is, obviously, Obama's fault. This ought to give Tea Partiers lots of ammunition. Damn if they should be still paying taxes to King George III for a bunch of moochers.

Meanwhile, the waves of non-Caucasian immigrants have been taking up the slack in the UK, while the entitled natives scream "this is our country, get out!" while sitting around doing nothing but sponging off the system.
 
2013-01-27 05:38:07 AM
One of their points is that they would be worse off working than sitting home on their asses. Unfortunately, that's true in many cases. Instead of encouraging people to work, our system actually encourages people not to work. Lets take a single mom. If she doesn't work, she gets free housing, food stamps, and health care lets say $2,000 a month in benefits. If she takes a $10.00 part time job she will take home around $600-700 dollars a month, and lose every penny of her benefits. Why the fark would she choose to work?
 
2013-01-27 05:39:24 AM
i would like to call "FAKE!" but at the same time it seems plausible. happens here too. when i worked furniture delivery i took a washer and dryer to a lady in the ghetto. single, 3 kids, and government assisted housing. while i was hooking it up she informed me that she had it made. all she had to do was work part time at mcdonalds and stay under a certain amount to keep all her benefits.

So much this...I have no problem paying my taxes and having it go to the less fortunate in this world..the righteously disabled, the mentally disabled, struggling veterans, people who are temporarily unemployed due to some kind of hardships they have encountered...

...but healthy individuals like these fuknuts...there should be someone who goes around pounding on these people rendering them legitimately disabled. And the people who defend them are no better, most likely because they have a little freeloading tendencies in them too

Liberals are always afraid that innocent people might be unfairly punished.

Conservatives are always afraid that innocent people might be unfairly rewarded.

Ishkur: Conservatives are always afraid that innocent people might be unfairly rewarded.


I believe this case CLEARLY demonstrates the Conservative point of view. This is the pinnacle of government wealth redistribution. Take from those who have worked hard and give to those who are able to work but won't.

/not conservative.
//Things wealth redistribution to people like this is a travesty and REALLY takes from those who actually need assistance and support.
///Jail them. Jail them both for crimes against their fellow countrymen.

carnifex2005: I got a 46" TV a year ago on Boxing Day for $400 CDN. That size TV isn't very expensive anymore.


In 2003 I paid $4500 for a 42" Philips plasma.  This past October, the ballast that fires up the tube went bad, and it was $250 just for the part to fix it.  Even though I had great memories from that TV, into the trash it went.  It also helped that it sucked up about 800 watts while it was on, which made it hot and drove up the electric bill.

I replaced it with a 55" Panasonic plasma that runs at 200 watts.  Cost?  $700.

Can't stop the march of technology.

Liberals always cheerlead a system that lets you take.

Conservatives always cheerlead a system that lets you earn.

Maybe we should take this as an indication that wages haven't kept up with the cost of living and if we want less people "sucking the government's teat dry" we might need to rethink not only what people should be paid but what might help reduce the cost of living?
