The big news yesterday, regarding the Muslin Brothers responsible for the New Boston Massacre, was that the oldest brother who has, thankfully, assumed room temperature (yeah, I said it.) and his family, were on the Government dole.
That’s right. You heard me. We financed a Muslim Terrorist.
But, wait…there’s more. Even though…
The brothers were not receiving transitional assistance benefits at the time of the incident and have not received any transitional assistance benefits this year. The Tsarnaevs’ parents are former recipients of transitional assistance benefits, and both Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev received benefits through their parents when they were younger. Separately, Tamerlan and his family received benefits until 2012, when the family became ineligible based on their income.
In other words, the family immigrated here, and then, soaked the system…for all it was worth.
What has happened to OUR country?
I tell you what has happened: Obama happened. The Manchurian President is deliberately turning “the shining city on a hill” into a Democratic Socialist Nation. The next thing you know, Baracky Claus will be passing out little Red Books and Mao Christmas Ornaments.
Don’t believe me? Want further proof? Here’s a story from The Washington Post:
A good recruiter needs to be liked, so Dillie Nerios filled gift bags with dog toys for the dog people and cat food for the cat people. She packed crates of cookies, croissants, vegetables and fresh fruit. She curled her hair and painted her nails fluorescent pink. “A happy, it’s-all-good look,” she said, checking her reflection in the rearview mirror. Then she drove along the Florida coast to sign people up for food stamps.
Her destination on a recent morning was a 55-and-over community in central Florida, where single-wide trailers surround a parched golf course. On the drive, Nerios, 56, reviewed techniques she had learned for connecting with some of Florida’s most desperate senior citizens during two years on the job. Touch a shoulder. Hold eye contact. Listen for as long as it takes. “Some seniors haven’t had anyone to talk to in some time,” one of the state-issued training manuals reads. “Make each person feel like the only one who matters.”
In fact, it is Nerios’s job to enroll at least 150 seniors for food stamps each month, a quota she usually exceeds. Alleviate hunger, lessen poverty: These are the primary goals of her work. But the job also has a second and more controversial purpose for cash-strapped Florida, where increasing food-stamp enrollment has become a means of economic growth, bringing almost $6 billion each year into the state. The money helps to sustain communities, grocery stores and food producers. It also adds to rising federal entitlement spending and the U.S. debt.
Nerios prefers to think of her job in more simple terms: “Help is available,” she tells hundreds of seniors each week. “You deserve it. So, yes or no?”
In Florida and everywhere else, the answer in 2013 is almost always yes. A record 47 million Americans now rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps, available for people with annual incomes below about $15,000. The program grew during the economic collapse because 10 million more Americans dropped into poverty. It has continued to expand four years into the recovery because state governments and their partner organizations have become active promoters, creating official “SNAP outreach plans” and hiring hundreds of recruiters like Nerios.
A decade ago, only about half of eligible Americans chose to sign up for food stamps. Now that number is 75 percent.
Obama is intentionally trying to expand those dependent of the Federal Government for their very existence. It is a classic Marxist Strategy: Create a Proletariat who are in eternal debt to The State. Buy their loyalty, through the misuse of taxes called from the Bourgeois, or, Middle Class. Why do you think that Obama practices Class Warfare every chance he gets?

When I write about the deteriorating effect of the Government Dole, I know of where I speak…I used to work at a State-run “Jobs Center”.
While at the Employment Office, I was able to observe folks down on their luck, struggling to find work and survive in this economy.
I also saw American families whose existence, living on the Government Dole, had become generational.
It is these people whom Obama and the Democrats have hypnotized into believing that Uncle Sugar loves them, and is their only solution to surviving a stifling existence.
They are so, so wrong.
The strength and vitality of America does not come from the benevolence of a Nanny-state Federal Government.
As the greatest American President of our lifetime, Ronald Reagan said:
The nine words you never want to hear are: I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.
Being enslaved to the Government Dole steals one’s ambition. It takes away any impetus or desire to create a better life for yourself and your family, to challenge yourself to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and pursue the American Dream. It makes you reliant on a politically-motivated spider’s web full of government bureaucrats who view you and your family as job security.
I watched American citizens trapped in this web of government bureaucracy, so numbed of any initiative that they once had, that they seemed offended that they actually had to prove that they inquired about three jobs that week in order to keep their “benefits”. Others seemed puzzled that they had to search through the state data base and pick out a job that they wanted to talk to an interviewer about receiving a referral to, and were not just simply handed a job when they walked through the door.
Unfortunately, judging by the family of the Boston Bomber, and, the push by the Obama Administration to get as many Americans, on the Government Dole as possible, including non-citizens, this trend will continue. And, the 47% will not be 47% for long.
Eventually, those who do not want to work will outnumber those of us who actually do.
The Proletariat will outnumber the Bourgeois.
And then, America will be one giant Detroit: a place that used to thrive, replaced by desolation.
Will the last taxpayer in America, please turn off the light?
