what is the imigration bill really about

The dems are seeking to legalize 11 to 20 million new voters to secure their power for the foreseeable future and turn red states blue

"encourage laziness and greed."

I admit that it can encourage such things but what would the alternative be? We can't stop from having such entities that provide for people. The results would be horrible in many different ways.

One also needs to remember that our society that created SSI and such also created organizations that help people find work that couldn't have decades ago.

100 years ago, if you had a significant mental or physical disability..you stayed home and worked on the family property if you were lucky. The expenses stayed within the family. But our culture couldn't do that now even if it wanted to. Not to mention the loss of a potential workers to the system.

Our disability, welfare, Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and other transfer-of-wealth schemes encourage laziness and greed.

It's a real problem, and we need to find a solution.

As for myself, I believe everyone should be provided for, and that everyone should have to work for the provision he or she gets.

I see two destructive attitudes.

Some consider some others unworthy of provision.

And some others greedily make sure that they're eligible for free provision, even to the point of crippling themselves by repeating over and over, "I can't do it."

Since I consider each person a potential contributor, I reject both attitudes.

"I don't want to live to see what this nation will become."

I'm certain that if it becomes too horrible for you that you can either buy a ticket to a capitalistic paradise (wherever that would be) or buy a gun to put yourself out of your misery.

Disability is easily granted. I live.within 1 mile of several people on disability. They cut wood, drink smoke dope seem pretty able to me. They do everything for cash of course.

According to the CDC, 20% of Americans are considered disabled. 19.9% of West Virginians between 18-44 are considered disabled.

Those are significant numbers of people that probably need some assistence.

"we have become lazy due to people that have your attitude"

What attitude is that? I want people to work if they are able.

There are always bootstraps, we have become lazy due to people that have your attitude

Sure the takers are outpacing the producers, no suprise. I don't want to live to see what this nation will become.

That sounds like assistence to me. What was the alternative? Wait for the unemployed to rise up and overthrown the govt?

There were no bootstraps to pull yourself up by back then. Heck, people were eating those bootstraps. 25% unemployment and let's face it....the Great Depression was a result of capitalism.

The govt didn't set up a system of assistance, the took from some to give to others. End of story

"imagine if Texas were flipped to a blue state due to millions of illegals being given citizenship. Does anybody think that may be the impetuous behind this push?"

No guarantee that they would go with the Dems. Besides, Texas won't be Red in another 20 years anyway. My personal guess is in 20 years they will be a purple state.

"Govt cannot and shouldn't try to do what we are supposed to."

In the Great Depression, what were we to do about those who were unable to work? The US developed a system to assist. Sure it doesn't always work but the alternatives are vile to consider.

"Don't confuse them with UNWILLING"

How does one tell the difference between the unwilling and unable. Most people I know that get's assistence also are able to work, while many would think they cannot.

"that govt cares about anything other than thier own power and prospects"

Sounds like they are reflecting the nature of the nation.

I have allready addressed those that are UNABLE. Don't confuse them with UNWILLING

Charity is needed and whether you believe it or not, I am a generous giver of same. Govt cannot and shouldn't try to do what we are supposed to. They do not do it in a spirit of love and caring but rather a cynical play for votes.

"Expecting to get something for nothing is the real greed."

And those unable to do "something"...then what? Should they hurry to decrease the surplus population?

You are a fool if you believe for one second that govt cares about anything other than thier own power and prospects of being reelected
