2010-01-26T13:14:10.500-05:00

I promise to creeb as loudly as any conservative about all those awful people on tax-paid assistance as soon as the following stuff happens:

1. Comprehensive age-appropriate sex and reproduction education, with classes on contraception and how that works, and none of that "Abstinence Only" crap.

2. Compulsory testing for obstacles to learning such as dyslexia, poor vision, poor hearing, different learning styles, and stuff like that, so that people don't, for example, graduate from elementary school not having learned anything because they've been busy covering their dyslexia and no one has noticed (I knew someone whose dyslexia was discovered in college; the student had covered it so well he was an editor at one of the school's publications. Now that's overcompensation).

3. Well-paid (particularly if disagreeable or socially disregarded) jobs for everyone.

(I bet this won't happen, and conservatives will have all sorts of excuses and "reasons" why it can't happen. They should get out of the way.)

Just slightly cranky this morning.

2010-01-26T11:16:14.909-05:00

La Lubu, (please don't read this as a snotty reply b/c it's not meant that way at all) as a matter of fact I DO rant and rave that my husband has been unable to find work. Not just b/c there's NO work to be had up here (Washington State), but because he can't pick his lazy ass up off the damn recliner and HELP me around the house. He suffers from crippling panic attacks. But whereas I was raised in a 'pick yourself up by your bootstraps and get to work' home, he was not. He can't seem to do anything when he's in the throes of the anxiety attacks. Whenever that happens to me, I keep myself busy to keep my mind off things. He can't do that. So I'm working my ass off, commuting, AND I get stuck doing everything around the house on the weekends as well. So yes, I rant and rave quite a bit... not really in blogosphere but in emails to close friends. And believe me, I chew him out constantly when I get home and the dishes aren't done, or the trash isn't out, or he promises to clean the bathroom and 3 days later it's still not clean. So yeah, I DO rant/rave at him too.

My idea of parents pitching in at the schools is on a volunteer basis. To assist the already-employed people, since the schools keep having to make such deep cuts in their budgets and are laying people off. There's a volunteer work force that could be utilized in the way of out of work parents. For example, there's an elementary school at the end of my block that badly needs painting. I've commented often that I'd be happy to volunteer and pitch in to help paint if the school organized something like that.

I guess I'm just in a the very small minority of people who just does not see the need to have baby after baby if you can't afford it. What's the point of bringing a child into such cruel poverty that they cycle is never broken? Usually w/o a father in the picture?

I work in family law, and have done so for the past 20 years. I see all kinds of situations, from wealthy to welfare. So I am basing my opinions on my own personal observances and professional work over the years. We have so many clients with children and expenses that they cannot afford. Is it right to bring kids into the world only to have their homes foreclosed upon & cars repossessed? Forced to move to a new school district? Mothers worrying about how they will put food on the table b/c their no-good ex won't pay support? It's not fair to the kids at all.

I'm sorry if most, if not all, of you disagree with me, but they are, after all, my feelings & opinions, and I would not be so hypocritical as to go along w/ everyone else for the sake of being PC or liberal. I have to be honest, with both myself and others.

Daisy, you and your firestorm topics! lol :p

2010-01-26T07:39:03.783-05:00

I'm sick of the breeding welfare queens

Gee, how many children does it take to be a "breeding welfare queen" in your eyes, JoJo? (it's probably worth a mention that humans do not reproduce via parthenogenesis, and yet no mention of the men). Forty percent of women on "welfare" have one child. Another thirty percent have two children. Another twenty percent have three children. And ten percent have four or more.

Of that ten percent that have four or more children, most are between the ages of 35-45.

So, the myth of breeding welfare queens is just an ugly, racist, sexist stereotype.

Here's a question for you: why are these women who have lost a job less valuable than your husband? Do you rant and rave at him on a daily basis for being a lazy, out-of-work bum for the last two years? Because if not, what makes you think the circumstances of out of work women are any different?

Also, this: Any parent who has a skill and who is out of work, should be at the schools pitching in doing maintenance, painting, classroom assistance, etc. would require the firing of maintenance people, janitors, lunchroom personnel, and teacher's aides---adding more folks to the unemployment (or welfare!) rolls. Not really a good plan.

(I don't know why I bother to say anything; SnowdropExplodes already said it all w/r/t mandatory unemployment to enrich the wealthy...)

I'm an electrician. Our contractors fought hard (many years ago...) for drug testing and got it on the contract. The first thing they discovered? Holy shit does that cost a lot of money and drive up the price of a job, and....almost no one is using drugs. They (the contractors) were operating under the influence of stereotypes---and found out in a dramatic way just how bogus those stereotypes were. Ya live, ya learn.

2010-01-25T23:09:04.487-05:00

I will leave the welfare, socialism arguments for the rest of you to ably sort out, I think Snowdrop does an excellent job. I want to comment on the photo of Bauer at the gym. As a guy who has worked out and lifted weights for over thirty years, I would like to point out that the guy looks like a douche. He has at least 50lbs on each dumbbell and is about to herniate his fourth and fifth lumbar. His form is beyond terrible. I know that he is trying for the macho photo, kind of like Reagan cutting wood on the ranch, but his back should be upright to deadlift or horizontal for rows. I expect to see the next shot of him in traction.

2010-01-25T20:49:46.295-05:00

i found Lt. Gov. Bauer's words a refreshingly frank articulation of Republican political philosophy. The Republican Party, i must remind everyone, harbors some of the finest minds of the 19th Century.... perhaps even the 18th.

but then, of course, tomorrow may belong to them.

2010-01-25T20:46:40.963-05:00

This is a small detail in the overall scheme of things, but let me list a few reasons why women on welfare aren't at PTA meetings:

(1) No public transportation, no car, and no money for a taxi.
(2) No one to keep the children
(3) Physical disability
(4) Unsafe neighborhoods

2010-01-25T20:43:56.036-05:00

JoJo, honey, you are on welfare. Don't kid yourself. Employers pay a tiny portion of your salary into a pool for unemployment. The rest comes from taxpayers' money, which also pays the workers' salaries and keeps the unemployment comp offices open.

2010-01-25T14:50:09.347-05:00

SnowdropExplodes wins the thread, for explaining the "reserve army of labor" in a South Carolina blog comment thread. In fact, SnowdropExplodes wins the internet for that. Only quibble: our system is state capitalism, not free-market capitalism. Free-market capitalism is a contradiction in terms.

2010-01-25T13:27:50.220-05:00

Well I am, after all, entitled to my opinion on this topic, even if it's not popular, politically correct, or Deadhead-like. I've always said that I'm Fiscally Conservative. In fact, the only things that keep me from being Republican are my views on abortion and gay rights.

My parents were extremely poor as well. My mom was raised during the Depression & has a high school education and one year of vocational training. My dad is from South America. My father only went to school thru about 6th or 8th grade. But he came to this country, became a citizen of the US, fought in WW2 and only had one child. My parents told me stories about when they moved to the Cape in the early 50's, having to split a sandwich b/c that was all there was to eat. My dad nearly died in 1960 and was in the hospital in Boston for 2 months. They were financially ruined after that b/c he couldn't work and mom was trying to work but traveling to see him every day. But they never once took a handout from anyone or from the govt. They made do, and cut back on things and lived very frugally. I wasn't born into wealth at all and I didn't grow up w/ a silver spoon in my mouth either. I'm the most unspoiled only child you'll ever meet.

I have no problem w/ the welfare system giving people, such as yourself, a leg up.

What I object to is people having children they cannot afford, then expecting the tax payers to pay for everything. Those parents need to be held accountable for their kids', esp. their kids' at school. If the parents are getting a handout, then they should give back by volunteering at their kids' schools.

My husband still has no job (it'll be 2 years in August) and still has no health insurance. Unemployment has not made a decision whether or not to restart his benefits. We are hobbling by on my salary and I resent it when my tax dollars go to subsidize people and their many children.

Just my opinion. :)

2010-01-24T17:12:34.953-05:00

Geezzzzzzzz! Don't get me started,D. ;-)
I guess if some people don't have the money to get an education and can't make it on the chicken feed wages offered in this state then we're supposed to cut off aid to them because they're uneducated or stupid or dumb or just plain poor...poor doesn't mean stupid, Stupid! (The latter comment to those it may concern.) And rich or educated doesn't mean that one is intelligent either...of course we do have those parasites who feed off the system both inside and outside of politics. I think they're easily identifiable.) God, what a quandary! It's not as easy as getting a job, we need good paying jobs! And those are less and less every day.(Walmart just cut 11,200 jobs.) And if we are to educate people for better jobs we need to make getting an education easier or more readily available to everyone but especially the poor. Most everyone knows SC educational system is one of the worst in the country. Has anyone mentioned this to AB? A lot of people on welfare are working jobs that pay so little they are forced to go on welfare. Others have to work two and three jobs to make a living. Sad! No problem as long as your health holds up. Or if you can even find a job. It's difficult to find a job, period; likewise job 2&3. We first need to create good jobs so we can put people back to work! Any ideas since everything has gone overseas??? Why don't politicians put their over average egos together and do something about this?

2010-01-24T14:40:36.940-05:00

Jojo, how far are you willing to go with that? Forced abortion, as in China? If not, jail time? Legally taking children away from their parents? Where will all the foster parents come from? And you do realize that foster parents are paid by the govt too? (Drug testing for the foster parents also, or just for the legal parents?)

You do know I was on public assistance myself once? I have worked for well over 20 yrs, but I briefly did need help. The vast majority of women on welfare are like me, and are on it for less than two years (as I was). Are you in favor of punishing the men, or just the women? If so--what about all the "unclaimed" kids with no legal fathers on record? Are you in favor of enforcing DNA testing at about $800 a pop? Paid for by the govt? Because that ain't cheap. Neither is mandatory drug testing. Where will you get the money for all this?

Would my lifestyle have passed muster when I was on welfare? Probably not, if judged by the likes of Bauer.

I have been able to work and contribute as a taxpayer for the past 20 yrs, all because of the help I got back in 1985... if I hadn't, I likely wouldn't be here at all, and neither would my child. So I do take this issue very personally.

You, Bauer, and any other ppl who thinks like him are *very lucky* and that's all well and good, but some of us were BORN poor, on welfare AS CHILDREN and were somewhat unlucky as adults too. We don't need to be penalized for that by someone who had all the breaks. Ask the ppl in Haiti about how fast luck can turn... the same Republicans who don't care about starving the poor kids, won't care about starving YOU when you need Social Security or Medicaid. After all, they've got theirs, why don't you? Look at their policies, they speak for themselves.

First they came for the welfare mothers...

2010-01-24T14:06:35.290-05:00

At the risk of being chewed out by you and your super liberal/leftie readers, I agree with what he said. I am 100% against this massive breeding and subsequent welfare. I am for zero population growth. I have no kids and I don't mind doing my fair share, but I'm sick of the breeding welfare queens. It's not PC to say it, but I agree. If they are getting a handout by way of free/reduced cost lunches, then they need to be responsible for their kids and pitch in. In fact, if the people are out of work and collecting welfare, they should be required to volunteer at their kids' schools. Any parent who has a skill and who is out of work, should be at the schools pitching in doing maintenance, painting, classroom assistance, etc. IMHO.

However, he IS a hypocrite b/c he isn't walking the walk with his other viewpoints on abortion and that tax break to Boeing is unreal. You never did blog on that.

Oh well.

That's the end of the argument.
