Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You, But What You Can Do For Your Country.

What ever happened to that mentality? Today it's "Gimme, gimme, gimme. You owe me". I would say it's only Democrats, but sadly it's not. There's more and more Republicans who think it's the government's job to take care of them. That somehow, just because you're born, you need to have everything handed to you. Where's a shock to the system. The government doesn't owe you a life. The only one's they have a responsibility to take care of are children up to 12-years-old and the elderly. At least that's my take on it. If young people today were somehow able to be transported back in time to when their grandparents where their age there is no way in hell they could survive. Actual hard work just so they could have something eat that night? Please. It would be 24 hours of bitch, bitch, bitch. Welfare and unemployment have been the ruination of this country. Now, I'm not saying do away with them. Not by any means, but rather cut them back. Right now they're more solid ground rather than the crutch they were meant to be. They were set up to help people get back on their feet but in today's lazy world they're used to live off of instead. Especially welfare. We have people who live on welfare for years because it's easy money. They sit on their ass and checking the mail is their job. I may not like what Kennedy's personal life was, but at least he had it right.

Yeah, I am wondering how you could "do away with" unemployment.

And actually, that's not true for the majority of welfare participants. If you'd checked any figures before writing your post, you'd know that the majority of welfare recipients work at least one job.

And in fact, the US system is geared so that way you get more money if you work than if you don't.

If you want some facts on welfare, there's this article by FAIR and this article which has all its sources cited after each point - if you wanted to do further research.
