hmmm...intelligence aside, most of the people that I know in this situation would definitely fall in the category of Conservative thinking. I have many acquaintances who are not working b/c "I don't want to", or "I am not going to do that kind of job" Most of the people that I deal with that are on welfare are the most racist, homophobic, close minded people, lazy people that I deal with... I know very few Conservatives who contribute to SOCIETY...they contribute to THEMSELVES first, and if this happens to help someone else then oh well....I see NO Conservatives volunteering to work in community social projects etc. Contributing to society does not just mean collecting a paycheck and then buying goods. In fact, that is the lowest, rudimentary, least commital form of contribution to society...very typically Conservative: "I have done the least I need to do, now I can go do what I want to do"
from what I have seen most people that are out of work are that way because they feel like they have been slighted by somebody else, and are either holding a grudge, or are now comfortable with the new found freedom they have to sit around and do other things, like hide in their compounds and shoot guns at tin cans...they also have mostly lost their jobs for getting caught doing something stupid or selfish on the job, or for not pulling the work load.
Sorry to bust the generalizations above...

If you have an issue with companies "creating jobs" with government money then complain to your hero Mr. Obama. It was his big idea to dump taxpayer dollars into the pockets of big business with the promise of "creating jobs". I said from Day 1 that it was a stupid idea. Don't blame conservatives for us, that one lays fully on the shoulders of the liberal controlled House, Senate and White House of 2008.
Am I bitter about it? Hell yes. I live in a county with a poverty rate of around 70% yet the local job service had 60 unfilled jobs and that isn't even counting places like WalMart, Kmart, convenience stores and restaurants that don't list job openings with them.
Am I tired of working hard while seeing others enjoy a free ride. You bet! I commonly stand in line behind people who buy their food with food stamps and then buy their beer and cigs with cash. If they can afford beer and cigs they don't need food stamps, they need to get their priorities straight.

Poor is the nation that has no heroes, shameful is the one that, having them...forgets."

Oh goodness. Okay, Duane.
What I have seen is you claim that by giving money to the already wealthy will cause them to hire people despite there being no one else with money to buy things and create demand. That theory goes hand in hand with this "terrible idea" of Obama's. Maybe you're mad he had the idea and you didn't? Maybe you're mad he actually gave a little, thereby forcing your side to do the same or look like jackwagons (which you do)? I don't know, I can only speculate.

But anyway, I have NEVER met a person who is on welfare that was liberal in any way...ever. I think that generalization is as laughable, and stupid as saying that all Muslims hate "Murica. Every liberal I know not only holds a 40 hour a week job, runs a family, does community service, has hobbies etc. Same for most of the Cons that I know minus the community service for pretty much the reasons you stated above...which references what I mentioned in my previous post.
