Soul-crushing dependency
Washington Examiner [DC], by Michael Barone

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/10/2012 8:56:39 AM

“This is painful for a liberal to admit,” writes liberal New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, “but conservatives have a point when they suggest that America’s safety net can sometimes entangle people in soul-crushing dependency.” Kristof is writing from Breathitt County, Ky., deep in the Appalachian mountains, about mothers whose Supplemental Security Income benefits will decrease if their children learn to read. Kristof notes that 55% of children qualifying for SSI benefits do so because of “fuzzier intellectual disabilities short of mental retardation,” far more than four decades ago when SSI was just a new program.

This is how they destroy, intentionally or not. They "help" to the point the help is preferable to the cure.

When our elder son, then 19, was in a head-on crash we were encouraged to apply for SSI on his behalf. A few years later he was finally able to hold a job, and about a year after that was doing well enough that we wrote a letter thanking the govt for their kind assistance and letting them know he no longer needed it. Our thanks in return was a letter from them demanding a refund of the entire past 2 years of payments.

Sadly in many neighborhoods the SSI check for such kids is known as "Ijit Pay". Zippy has allowed any kid with a bad repot card to qualify for "ijit pay".

In 19whn Richard Nixon as fighting to remain as president, SSI was offered to the liberals as a goodie to deflect them. It is a program out of control.
#2, you don´t need a significant disability. SSI can be applied to newborns. A couple of years ago, in Waterford, Pa, little baby was starved to death, and its sibling twin was nearly starved to death. The 19 year old mother did it, withholding food from the twins. And the twins were on SSI because they were born prematurely.
You don´t need a significant disability. The courts have ruled that if a child acts up in school, that represents a learning disability, which is coverned under SSI. The payment is known in some areas as a ´crazy check.´
And if a person is an alcoholic or drug addict, that person is eligible for SSI. But SSI money has to be spent immediately. So it is not unusual for a person new to SSI to get several months´ checks all at once, and overdose on drugs or alcohol and die.
SSI is perhaps the worst social program in the history of our country.

Creating dependency is the pathway to power. This is the co-dependency that is the life-blood of democrats. Those who seek their dominion over others rely on this dependency to feed their own addiction. The Democratic party has institutionalized this human weakness and has successfully marketed it as a benefit. A strong and independent voter is useless to such ilk and therefore, marginalized.

For the life of me, after all the study and research I´ve done on the matter, I still don´t understand the desire of holding dominion over another, but it truly is a mental disorder.

Taking care of the aged, infirm, needy individuals is humane, civilized and worthy of a country such as the US. We had developed a formula where the Government and public funds would blend and work with private charity and community based resources to make it happen. That is NOT what we are talking about here. Pushing Grandma´s wheelchair over the cliff is a red herring (mis)used every time to avoid a serious discussion on this topic. Our Fearless Reader better at it than anyone else.
A whopping 33% Americans receiving some form of public entitlement payment is a grotesque, obscene and perverse caricature of this noble goal.
How we got here is a long and complicated story. But the answer is not. We HAVE to get back to more normal and natural levels. It won´t happen overnight but that should not be used as an excuse to not even try.
There is genuine fear among the Republican rank and file that Boehner & Co. might be ready to sell the producers, wealth creators, givers of this country down the river. Zippy on the other hand has made his intentions as clear as Hitler did his in Mein Kampf, that he does not intend to yield an inch and in fact will drive the 33% even higher if he can get away with it. Is anyone willing to read?

The first sentence in any article of this type is that the money spent on all of these programs is borrowed with teh debt being added to future generations. There also be an explanation that payroll taxes extracted from a person are really a substitute for the portion of their life that was spent in earning the money and when we add to the national debt we are actually taking away part of the lives of future working people.

second post apologies - but I used to teach a course in Benefits administration, at the graduate level. And each year i brought in a speaker from the Social Security Administration, to explain the programs in his agency.
His first words to the class were always, "Does anyone know what a ponzi scheme is?"
He went on to explain SSI, and how a minors check is sent usually to baby momma, and if she has a half dozen kids on crazy checks, that is worth about 5000 tax free dollars to her each month. There is no requirement that she spend the money on the chillun.
So in many cases, she coaches each child to act like the other children in the family to get an additional crazy check.
And the SS rep also told my students how an alcoholic who couldn´t handle money could designate his alternate payee - often his bartender!
Finally, the social security administration does not have the capacity to offer social services, counseling, and the like. They just do the paperwork and the money flows to the recipients.

The question to ask Progressives is this.

"How do you intend to lift your dependent constituents out of poverty so they can support themselves"?

(crickets)

So then are you saying that you want to keep them there so you can give them their "stuff"?

What a potential pot of gold for the 20 million person plus illegal alien population, who you can bet have all sorts of yet to be discovered developmental disabilities, once Obama does get them all legalized.

Now the illegal alien population has no resource but to work hard for little pay.

Once legalized, with human nature being what it is, along with the fact that the very liberal ethnic and immigrant community organizers allied politically to the Obama Administrator will be working non-stop to eventually get as many as possible of those legalized people signed up as liberal Democrat voters, you can bet that this SSI sitting duck will be one of the prime vehicles they will use to ensure that as many of those legalized people are as dependent upon the US Government as possible.

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats Lose Two More Special

National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
