jso2897: The post, with the links, are in the thread, along with several responses to what you ahve said. I might post more if and when you take the time to read what I have already posted - but frankly, I am quickly wearying of your demands for attention.

The only person I'm acquainted with first-hand who uses government assistance is my mother-in-law in Indiana. She gets her health and utility expenses paid directly by the government, no card necessary. Social Security checks provide her living expenses. She's pretty good at managing the money she gets, but I'm suspect that's not the norm.To the contrary I would imagine that all the old folks on SS who lived through or were affected by the great depression probably budgets very well. I know grandmere did.MIL raised three kids in what was basically a shack, living on a sh*t income, so I think she got hip to budgeting pretty early in the game.That's great (that she was privy to proper budgeting). If only we could teach kids these days to do the same, and as long as we are dreaming, the GOP too.Hey! They're the Party of Fiscal Responsibility! Why do you hate fiscal responsibility?My bad, you are right... it was totally Clinton and Obama's fault we went Trillions of dollars into debt between 2000 and 2008. How stupid of me. At least we can count on the GOP and their laser like ocus on creating new jobs.They protected us from Saddam's WMDs and brought stability to the region, too. You're obviously a Marxist ingrate! Why don't you just go get gay-married someplace and leave the rest of us alone!;-)I WAS at Berkeley during the ramp up to the Iraq war. We were pretty gung-ho about it being a stupid idea even before the war started and we made sure our voices were heard, albeit ignored. We never protested Afghanistan though, that was righteous. Anyways, I guess you hit the nail on the head =PYeah, I travel a fair amount, and I had occasion to witness, on two different occasions, TWO huge anti-Iraq war protests - one in Washington, D.C. and one in Chicago. Oddly, neither of them made even the local news. Damn liberal media. . . .Still, Obama's the worst president in history. So remember to vote GOP, ya hear?
Uchiha_Cycliste: AngryDragon: Of course you can. There's a Democrat in the White House.Is this some racist, blacks and drugs thing? I don't get it.
ErinPac: You can get your Social Security benefits on a card. Do you think she'd need to be protected from using the wrong ATM's if she switched to that option?
AngryDragon: Of course you can. There's a Democrat in the White House.
