    [QUOTE]If there is a "War" on anyone it is a war on youth declared by libruls.

     

    Obamacare soaks them for insurance they don't need to pay for those who are getting subsidies and to reduce the costs of those with high claims, ie the elderly.

    They are getting hosed by Social Security and Medicare withholdings that are taken directly from their paychecks and given to, again, the elderly directly. Charles Ponzi would be proud.

    They are getting scrooed by artificially high tuition rates that are pushed higher and higher with the never ending supply of money coming from the librul programs to fund the education establishment.

    They are robbed of a decent public education by unions and bureaucrats that put job preservation ahead of quality of education.

    There's probably more but that is plenty already

    [/QUOTE]


     

    Heh, heh, heh ... some people just hate America sooo much they can't help but wet themselves.

    Yep, them 'librul' programs that ensure a healthy, educated population are just so dang un-wingnutty .... they prefer to wallow in their ignorance while sucking on the teet of gov't handouts.

    [/QUOTE]

    Those "liberul" programs do nothing of the sort.  They distort the market, causing people to make irrational life decision, and then they are thankful for the crumbs some federal goon throws  their way.

    at the same time, these programs enrich progressive politicians while breaking the financial back of our country.

    yah, it's all good.  What was it that Madison said? Something to the effect that charity is not the business of the legislature?

    The dems war on the poor is the worst I've ever seen in my lifetime...in every category the poor in this country have become worse off since Obama became President....very sad....it must be discouraging to be told to take a government check instead of being productive and be forced into a life of dependence and given no hope of getting out.

    Imagine the impact if Obama cared more about jobs for the poor and less about his liberal agenda, power, and votes for Democrats????

    Give a dependent person hope, a job, independence and they care about where their tax money is spent....makes them less likely to vote Dem...not good for the agenda...better to keep people in poverty and no US President has done it better than this one....

    psssst. It's a republican talking about a republican war on the poor.

     

    Of course even he is somewhat in the wrong because the biggest front in the War on the Poor is, in fact, the War on Drugs.

    A war that has been lost every year for the last hundred years.

    A war that ensnares the poor and ensures they stay poor for the rest of their lives; meanwhile middle aged white people in the middle and upper classes - the most common type of addict - don't get caught because the police aren't looking.

    And if they mess up, they get to say sorry, go to rehab, get forgiven, yadda yadda.

     

     

     

    Meanwhile the poor black guy who got caught with some drugs can't even land a job in McDonalds even if he does reform. The only job available to them is motivational anti-drug speaking, or crime...

    Gee if I ever became unemployed and went on unemployement, I wouldn't feel like I was "told" to take a check, nor would I be "forced into a life of dependence," nor would I lack hope of getting out.

     

    You're actually acting like the stereotypical warrior against the poor. You're just making blind assumptions about them, that they are worse people than you - helpless, lazy, etc.

    In other words, you bought all the propoganda that the R governor of Ohio attributes to the Republican party.

     

    You are the footsoldier in the war on the poor. Congrats.

    Are you saying only black men use drugs? Why the need to single out black men? Why not say "the poor guy who got caught with drugs..."????

    And maybe the "poor" guy shouldn't have got involved with ILLEGAL drugs. I love that...oh the "poor" guy got arrested for illegal drugs....HELLO....drugs are ILLEGAL....he should get arrested. You of all people should understand the law. I'm sure you've learned a few things working for lawyers...then again maybe not...

    Very lame attempt at trolling. You know perfectly well that nothing I said was "racist."

    Just because you hate gay people doesn't mean that other people are biggoted like you.

    "poor black guy who got caught with some drugs"

    Are you saying all black guys deal drugs?

    You are sounding pretty racist to me.

    Are you really so dumb and dishonest that you will say that the police do not go after poor inner city black people more than they go after middle class middle aged white people?

    Even your follow on explanation sounds racist.  And cop bashing. and ageist.

    You must have been the person who taught Obama how to respond to the issues of the day, you know, cops acting stupidly, and the like.

    Just more proof that progresisvism sees everything through a prism of racism.  And when they trip, by accident mind you, into telling you what they really think about young black men, they claim it isn't racist.

    These are the people running this country right now.  Consider this sad glimpse into their thought process, brought to you by WDYWN.

    Must be the Obama Admnistration's NSA, they monitor all communications !

    [/QUOTE]

    You seem to imply you do not like what the NSA has been up to. I would agree with you. However, this is not new to the current administration. To link any one administration to the apparetnly unConstitutional work of the intelligence industry is to willingly  miss the point. On this issue are you concerrnd about actually changing things or do you just want to say negative things about this administration?

    I admit that it is not only NOT mutually exclusive but important to point out the failings of this administration. But to limit it to just this one as you actually do is to take the most important point out of the whole thing. It is the intelligence community that needs to be changed and no administration should be allowed to reintroduce those aspects that are unConstitutional.

    Think about it a moment.

    [QUOTE]

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — In his grand Statehouse office beneath a bust of Lincoln, Gov. John R. Kasich let loose on fellow Republicans in Washington.

    “I’m concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor,” he said, sitting at the head of a burnished table as members of his cabinet lingered after a meeting. “That if you’re poor, somehow you’re shiftless and lazy.”

    “You know what?” he said. “The very people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they worked at the W.P.A.”

    Ever since Republicans in Congress shut down the federal government in an attempt to remove funding for President Obama’s health care law, Republican governors have been trying to distance themselves from Washington.

    Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin schooled lawmakers in a Washington Post opinion column midway through the 16-day shutdown on “What Wisconsin Can Teach Washington.” Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, with a record of bipartisan support at home, remarked after a visit to the nation’s capital, “If I was in the Senate right now, I’d kill myself.”

    But few have gone further than Mr. Kasich in critiquing his party’s views on poverty programs, and last week he circumvented his own Republican legislature and its Tea Party wing by using a little-known state board to expand Medicaid to 275,000 poor Ohioans under President Obama’s health care law.

    Once a leader of the conservative firebrands in Congress under Newt Gingrich in the 1990s, Mr. Kasich has surprised and disarmed some former critics on the left with his championing of Ohio’s disadvantaged, which he frames as a matter of Christian compassion.

    He embodies conventional Republican fiscal priorities — balancing the budget by cutting aid to local governments and education — but he defies many conservatives in believing government should ensure a strong social safety net. In his three years as governor, he has expanded programs for the mentally ill, fought the nursing home lobby to bring down Medicaid costs and backed Cleveland’s Democratic mayor, Frank Jackson, in raising local taxes to improve schools.

    To some Ohio analysts, those moves are a reaction to the humiliating defeat Mr. Kasich suffered in 2011 when voters in a statewide referendum overturned a law stripping public employees of bargaining rights. Before the vote, Mr. Kasich’s approval in this quintessential swing state plunged.

    Now, as the governor’s image has softened, his poll numbers have improved heading into a re-election race next year against the likely Democratic nominee, Ed FitzGerald, the executive of Cuyahoga County.

    He still angers many on the left; he signed a budget in June that cut revenues to local governments and mandates that women seeking an abortion listen to the fetal heartbeat. Democrats see his centrist swing as mere calculation, a prelude to a tough re-election fight.

    “This is someone who realized he had to get to the center and chose Medicaid as the issue,” said Danny Kanner, communications director of the Democratic Governors Association. “That doesn’t erase the first three years of his governorship when he pursued polices that rewarded the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.”

    Ohioans earning in the top 1 percent will see a $6,000 tax cut under the latest budget passed by the Republican-led legislature, while those in the bottom fifth will see a $12 increase, according to Policy Matters Ohio, an independent research group.

    Yeah the R war on the poor. How about how the Democrats stonewall school vouchers?

    Forcing the poor black Americans into the inner city public school systems?

    How about there is nothing more racist then keeping the black population uneducated and on food stamps so they have a reliance on Government?

    Keep the black man down uneducated in public housing on food stamps on welfare and then blame the Republicans.

    The Democrats would rather take campaign contributions from the Teacher's unions then lift the American Black families out of the ghetto and into the main stream and why they continually fight school vouchers and the Republicans trying to advance them.

    There is nothing that has kept the black family in America down more then the Democrat entitlement programs.

    Look at detroit or any other Democrat controlled city and you will see abject poverty or out of control spending putting that city on the brink.
