    Governor plans to completely eliminate welfare for families

    Yeah that'll work. :rolleyes: I bet it gets rid of the homeless problem in the state as well. :cool: On the bright side business at thrift stores, and soup kitchens is bound to pick up. :smile:

    Do you have a better solution to close the $21.3 billion budget deficit? California residents rejected the governor's ballot measures to give more money to the state. So unless some other state wants to give us those billions, things have to be cut.

    Things may need to be cut, but to take it away from the poor and struggling isn't the way to do it. It's obvious where the money should come from, alas, some people are afraid of teabagging. I kid, of course... But just a bit.

    I recall a day when Schwarzenegger was supposed to be the savior of California and what a horrible governor Gray Davis was ?

    Fight: Obama vs. Schwarzenegger: White House Threatens To Rescind Stimulus Funds
    Fight: Obama vs. Schwarzenegger: White House Threatens To Rescind Stimulus Funds ? ButAsForMe

    Save California $ 74 million while costing it $ 6.8 billion in federal aid ? Sounds to me like Schwarzenegger's plan is to low ball and cut wages, the $ 74 million saved, wonder who winds up getting that ? I wonder when Governors will be asked to work for a $ 1 year, whether they'd ever do it ? Sacrifices have to be made and since AS is as wealthy as he is, is on record as wanting to help California, here's his perfect opportunity to prove any of it isn't just lip service ?

    I think Schwarzenegger's crazy emphasis on the Cali budget is a political ploy. The state could very well function like the federal government which survives on deficit spending for a period of time. The reason this is impossible is because the Assembly passed a law some time ago that the state had to balance its budget. It's an artificial criteria, and could be changed by the legislature if it wanted. Instead the political parties like to use it as a football that they throw back and forth, each charging the other with fiscal irresponsibility.

    "Cutting" is one thing. "Completely removing" is another thing entirely. I don't see this working, to be honest.

    Libs love the Darwinian card... let's REALLY sit it in action.

    Drive thru the loathsome neighborhoods of Oakland, East LA, Modesto, Fresneck, the Loin, etc... amidst the "welfare & satellite dishes and cell phones" (see H.Katrina)..... if them peeps can work and cheat the system and unions... I'm guessing they are smart enough to work it elsewhere.

    and please let's not make this about Ahnold... this about the most liberal state in America and the legislature thereof (or lack thereof). In this state, it's the governor whom is left to balance the checkbook, that's why you here ZERO blame game (in terms of political parties) from the mainstream (Errrrrrr liberal based media) on this.

    Sometimes some people need a little help for a short period of time. Not everyone who gets welfare does so for life.

    Of course those in need can always turn to robbery, prostitution, drug dealing or some other form of employment.

    Is it just me, or does reading {loves Jizz in his Face}King's posts leave anyone else with the impression that he has quite possibly the most limited command of the English language possible? I think he may have lost the ability to illiterate a coherent thought from Chronic Masturbating.:wank::wank::wank::wank::wank::wank: Why is he SOOOOooooo Mad at that mirror and coffee table? Does he leave those ghastly mess's behind for his mom to clean up? Does he own stock in Windex and Bounty paper towels?
    I have heard many times, that whipping off constantly can brutalize one's intellect.....not that i would ever give Facey credit for ever possesing that. One thing is for sure though......anyone can surely tell....HE :mad: HATES :mad: NEGROS AND MEXICANS. :eek: And AMERICA.

    my thinking exactly on this so called plan of his. then when they get caught they go to jail an they still have to feed them anyway. no difference really its still us working thats taking care of them when it comes right down to it.only difference here is then they are in some nice cool place in the hot summer time. while a lot of us are out in the heat sweating our assets off working to pay tax dolors to feed them still.:wink:

    Well, he's the one posing a plan that essentially steals from the poor people. It's not some "lib" who came up with that brilliant idea. I guess he's threatened by the possibility of another large group of teabaggers yelling out obscenities at him.

    not for real as it was before my time. but my hubby has many family photos of some of his family during that time in some of these camps an they aren't pleasant photo to see really. He also has some who had to walk for miles and some who the conductor let ride the rails under the rail road cars in that day. if they slipped him some money to get to a job site to work for the wpa. the three c crews of that time after Hoover was out. he has his other grandpas diary that he kept of those days an it is very full of history concerning this time period an how hard it was an how much things cost as well. one grandpa had a saw mill during this time so that side of the family had it some what good do to this, because he had a ration sticker for gas, an food an such an also farmed an could get sugar an things in vast quantity that others couldn't, an what they couldn't get in that time his grandpa got from black market. because of the Hoover days thats why he hates republicans so much. they thought at that time all you needed was a quart of whiskey to get a vote an have a mule an your good to go. an that still seems to be their thinking yet today in some ways. they always resort to the same Ole ways of Herbert Hoover some way every time they get in office. an after bush i totally agree hubby on this one. but this thread isn't about bush an or reps. so i apologize for even saying the sob name. thank god for Roosevelt or we would still be living like that yet today. Jason your photo shows clambered board shacks hubby's shows tents an rags on poles, an piles of sand here an their. an very skinny sickly people all around. not a pretty site. an a sad time in America that was for sure.

    please elaborate on how he [arnold] is stealing from poor people.

    He's stealing money that has been *given* to poor people, simply by not *giving* more money that isn't there to begin with?

    Face it, Cali has been fucked up fiscally for years; coddling illegal immigrants, regulating energy prices to an extent that causes blackouts, etc.

    Can't get blood out of a turnip.

    Funny how government assistance is "welfare" only when it applies to the poor. When big businesses, corporations, failing banks, ceo's, special interest groups, and debtor countries are on the take, it's never "welfare".

    Understand your point; however, gov't TARP dollars were established with repayment as the ultimate goals.

    'welfare' as it were, will never be repaid.

    Also, Cali will not be presenting any corporations, banks, ceo's or debtor countries with any dollars either.

    They are beyond broke.

    Government TARP dollars will never be repaid, nor any of the others I've cited.

    Oddly though, compared to the trillions of dollars given for those handouts, certain people only seem to get pissed over "welfare" recipients. Wonder why??

    Starinvestor, I can't wait until the day when one of these idiot's, be it Obama or anyone else for that matter, comes up with the funny math and proclaims all of this paid back ? I want to see that fool, the one with the audacity to proclaim it ? How can any of these bailouts ever be repaid without inflation to the very goods and services to taxpayers that bailed it out in the first place ? We're being double dipped here. On the front end with bailouts to invest in a sham, during the payback period as inflation and beyond as higher costs of living. This is welfare pure and simple, it's like a Tsunami relief fund to a 3rd world nation, as bottomless and un-repayable as a donation for a cure for cancer or HIV/Aids.

    Let's take Chrysler, we bailed them out again ! They went bankrupt and for all the investment the federal government made into Chrysler, it will now be a division of Fiat. So Fiat is going to pay us back ? I can't wait to see that ? The last cars Fiat marketed in the USA, those were the infamous Yugos of the late 1980's. Are we going to see rebadged Fiats as Chryslers and sold like K-cars again ? The Japanese are simply going to dominate a market they already own ?
