Re: The Walking Dead

Second, I don't understand how the prison could have been over run by zombies. It's a secure facility with tons of ways to lock it down, including individual sections. So it should be an easy task to confine the zombies to one area. But, I'm at a [more]

Re: Those lazy, good for nothing unemployed

Again, this is the attitude that those people who are laid off are not productive or not good workers/employees. They aren't worth anything, get rid of 'em.

Re: Those lazy, good for nothing unemployed

The next thing you know, you need a BA to bag groceries.

So we'd be in a lot of trouble if everyone got a BA, because bagging groceries is reserved for the dregs of society...

Re: OT worried about a tax audit?

SS is not *at all* a needs-based welfare.

So far, only a little. The amount of the SS benefit that is considered taxable income depends on how much other income you made. For example, none of my SS benefits have been considered [more]

Can you cite one [study that shows that when benefits run out people tend to find work]?

Re: OT worried about a tax audit?

I for one consider anyone collecting Social Security or Medicare to be on welfare. I dont know how people can see it any differently. Paying in was for someone else. You never paid in for your lonesome.
