    You want Uncle to buy your groceries and pay your rent? Grab a ing broom. When you're done with that, empty the trash. No more freebies. Workfare, not welfare.

    My grandfather tried to hire some of those "starving" people back in the depression when he needed coal unloaded from rail cars so he could sell it. He offered twice the daily "minimum wage" that WPA workers got. He got very few takers, because even hungry people can be too lazy to do an honest day's work. My grandmother would buy a 15 cent pack of cigarettes and sell them for a penny apiece to their workers who didn't think they could afford to buy a full pack. Nicotine was the addictive drug of choice for a lot of stupid people back then, just like today.

    You might have missed a few. I have friends that have come up in the high 60s when they ran the numbers. The property taxes on my old house in NY were a healthy 5 figures by themselves...

    True, but this is Florida... No state income tax (yet).

    ps. Our property tax is only ~$700/ yr. :tooth:

    Today, it's not just the nicotine and is not just drugs. Govco has got plenty of folks by the short and curlys and most of those folks are just as hooked as the average tweeker.
    "Bipartisan" usually means that a bigger than normal deception is happening.
