An Alternative View To Be Considered When Reading Cato Institutes report that says poor Americans have it too good

Some among the conservative flock think only the needy game the system, as seen by reading this article by Lloyd Marcus, The Ultimate Devastating Price of Government Dependency posted at a conservative blog, The American Thinker. The article reflects a common opinion often perpetuated by many conservatives that poor people are poor because they are lazy and thus more likely to game the system. Consequently their mantra is welfare creates freeloaders and demand the programs be cut. But seldom do they demand cuts to subsidies that benefit the wealthy and corporations nor even acknowledge the existence of the corporate welfare system

Disaster Relief in Aftermath of Superstorm Sandy – is it government that is too big or a society that is big enough?

It’s during times like this that as a nation we can join together to help those in need. Doing so speaks of the higher consciousness that a society is capable of manifesting and that we, rightfully so, speak proudly of whenever we do. A society helping those in need is not a demonstration of a government that is too big but of a society big enough to step beyond the self-interest of the individuals that make up that society…

Republicans are Thelma and Democrats are Louise

We’re long overdue for busting up the monopoly this bogus two-party has over our political system and our legislative processes. The Democratic Party dates back to 1790 while the Republican Party dates back to 1854 and that’s long enough...

Why Americans Hate Congress

It's no wonder congress has been polling so low. Since the internet was invented, Americans are starting to find out just how congress really works…did congress actually have to pass a (watered-down) law forbidding them to conduct insider trading on the stock market? Members of congress (as well at state legislatures, governors, etc.) are already above the law on almost everything else as it is now. They certainly don't lead by example, so why are they called our "leaders"…

Truth or Consequences in the Budgetary Class War Waged in Congress

The reality is that many of our elected officials no longer believe they are answerable to the people; that the Constitution is merely an outdated piece of paper; and that we the people are largely simpletons whom they mock with their political spin and tales – their smug demeanor evident all the way to the bank.

The Master Of Disaster

Corporate/Elitist Welfare vs. Personal Welfare – An In-Depth Analysis

A glaring contradiction exists in which some conservatives take issue with welfare for the needy but not for the wealthy or corporations…they hate these programs because they believe they create freeloaders and that people should fend for themselves, except for the wealthy and corporations of course… Consequently their mantra is welfare creates freeloaders and demand the programs be cut…but seldom do they demand cuts to subsidies that benefit the wealthy and corporations nor even acknowledge the existence of the corporate welfare system.

Clearly because the Treasury will be able to prioritize the bills that need to be paid the government will not shut down nor go into completed default. Here we present a legal perspective of the authority vested in the President...
