F Kalifornia when they go broke:

Out of the 52 States, California is ranked 13th in Dan Mitchell’s “Moocher” Index:

I wanted to get a better understanding of the variations in government dependency. Is there a greater willingness to sign up for income redistribution programs, all other things being equal, from one state to another? The “all other things being equal” caveat is very important, of course, since the comparison produced by CIS may simply be an indirect measure of the factors that determine welfare eligibility. One obvious (albeit crude) way of addressing this problem is to subtract each state’s poverty rate to get a measure of how many non-poor people are signed up for income-redistribution programs.

So California ranks 13th in the amount of non-poor people signing up for welfare.

No wonder they allow them to gamble with out money eh? Who cares…as long as they keep voting in the Democrat

Liberals are sooooo stupid:

The “Personal Energy Subsidy” No One Talks About
By DJ Redman on Feb 24, 2012 in featured opinion

Members of Congress have recently been embroiled in a battle to stop what many have termed “Big Oil Company Subsidies.” These government-sponsored subsidies come in many forms, such as corporate tax breaks for common expense tax write-offs, and for depletion of equipment costs. Keep in mind, that these same tax breaks are also given to every other manufacturer in America, not just Big Oil Companies. Randall Hoven outlines the situation precisely in an article titled About Those Oil Subsidies.

The Big Oil subsidy outcry is just another ploy by the American left to bash the very fossil fuel that has been the main producer of affordable energy in America ever since the invention of the various versions of electricity generators and the subsequent evolution of the energy industry. As with any production company, the free market energy system is based on competition-driven cost controls, where affordability is job one. Allow big government to completely control the energy industry and the results will be higher prices for everyone who can afford to pay, while also using it as a tool for stealth wealth redistribution and vote-buying to stay in power. Now that the big government myth about the big oil companies not paying their fair share has been busted wide open, and some of the reasons behind that power grab have been theorized, let’s take a look at one of the biggest energy subsidies ever handed out by the U.S. Government. Personal,

Personal, welfare-dependence-driven energy subsidies that cost U.S taxpayers billions of dollars every year.

In a democratic society, fairness, and equality are supposed to be the cornerstone of the system. When certain groups or sectors of society are given preference over another one by a government through the usage of tax dollars, this becomes a blatant example of taxation without representation.( of ALL people not just some of them) Other words that may be used to describe this scenario may include Fascism, tyranny, socialism, and political oppression. So how can big government manipulators explain why one sector of American society has to pay for their utility usage, while another very large sector receives a personal energy subsidy from the U.S. Government that the rest of society is made to pay for?

While the oil companies “subsidies,” which are in fact tax breaks, have been put at around $4 billion dollars a year, how much do the personal energy subsidies cost the taxpayer each year? All states have their own personal energy subsidy programs, which are at least partly funded by federal tax dollars. The website Welfare Info is a good place to explore the current welfare system, and just what government “subsidies” the career welfare class receives.

[Note: There is a big difference between an American tax-paying, energy producing company getting legal tax breaks (unjustly termed "subsidies" by the leftists and enviro-terrorists) and a non-producing, non-taxpaying career welfare sector receiving personal energy subsidies to pay their utility bills at the expense of the working class in America.]

For tenzing the ignorant and dishonest

Another of the welfare programs is the energy or utility assistance program which is intended to help those who cannot afford to pay for basic utility needs, such as heat, electricity and/or gas and water. Like the child support program, it will supplement part of or provide 100% of the monthly utility costs.

Although the state by state personal energy subsidy programs are unique, they all contain on commonality: One sector of American society is being made to pay for another sector’s energy bills through government programs, many of them consisting of utility companies forming “partnership programs” with state and local governments. So who qualifies for these taxpayer-funded personal energy subsidies? Can a non-U.S. citizen have their utility bill paid by U.S. taxpayers, or receive other welfare payments ?

Again from Welfare Info:(emphasis added)“You must be a citizen of the United States or a qualified non-citizen legal resident,(restrictions apply).” So, not only are U.S. taxpayers being made to subsidize career welfare people’s personal energy bills, they are also being made to subsidize what amounts to payments to criminal illegal aliens who broke the law while entering the United States.

Again, how much do these personal energy subsidies cost the U.S. taxpayer? The fact is, that the big government bureaucracy now has so many personal energy subsidy programs that it is all but impossible to put a total cost to the taxpayers on it, which appears to be have done by design over decades of nanny-state planning and dependency program creation. Utility Bill Assistance has a complete rundown of state by state personal energy subsidy programs, along with this explanation about another pair of federal personal energy subsidy programs:

Mutt Romputz's ideas for how to use the office of POTUS to enrich HIMSELF and HIS FAMILY.

1. Eliminate estate tax. Install American Aristocracy for his useless kids and grandkids. Meritocracy? Not for Romputz born with a silver stick up his arse.

Cost to us:$1 TRILLION
Jobs created: zero

2. Constitutional Amendment to make it illegal for anyone other than a businessman to be POTUS.

What? That crap would have eliminated Reagan and Eisenhower but keep in Hoover and Bumya Bush. Businessmen make LOUSY POTUSes.

Cost to us: another Republicon DEPRESSION
Jobs created: negative 5 million

3. Tax the hell out of those who can least afford it. Reduce or eliminate taxes for billionaires, millionaires and global corporations.

Cost to us: FASCISM
Jobs created: serfs and slaves

4. Eliminate taxes for $200,000.00 of investment income...not labor income...just investment income.

Cost to us: places money over people
Jobs created: none

According to the Boston Globe,“Mitt Romney’s campaign said the Republican presidential nominee will ‘study and consider’ the immigration bill outlined by Florida Senator Marco Rubio but stopped short of offering an endorsement. Rubio is putting together a conservative alternative to the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. That bill would facilitate citizenship for illegal immigrant youths who enroll in college or enlist in the military and would allow these young illegal immigrants to stay in the United States but would deny them citizenship.”[Boston Globe, 4/19/12]
I think it's the "denying them citizenship" part that Romney might consider a viable solution too.
According to the Boston Globe, most democrats and Latinos also support Rubio's version.
My question is if why these young people who were brought to this country and kept their noses clean and graduated from high school should be denied citizenship especially if they serve in the military and put their lives on the line for the rest of us should be denied citizenship? In most cases this is the only country they’ve ever known.

Former Republican presidential nominee John McCain says he's "worried" that billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who reportedly may contribute up to $100 million in support of GOP hopeful Mitt Romney, and others could have an undue influence on elections as a result of the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.

"I'm not only worried about him, I'm worried about many others," McCain told NBC's David Gregory on Sunday. "I've always been concerned about the labor unions who take money from their union members and without their permission, contribute to causes that they may not support. So am I concerned about the incredible amount of money that's washing around? Yeah."

"Sheldon Adelson makes money from a foreign casino as well," Gregory noted. "You said this week it's tantamount to foreign money getting into the [Romney] campaign."

"I think there will scandals as associated with the worse decision of the United States Supreme Court in the 21st century," McCain explained. "Uninformed, arrogant, naive. I just wish one of [the justices] had run for county sheriff. That's why we miss people like [former Chief Justice] William Rehnquist and [former Justice] Sandra Day O'Connor, who had some experience with congressional and other races."

"Do you think Adelson himself will have undue influence on Mitt Romney?" Gregory pressed.

"Not any more than other people who give lots of money," Mccain replied. "The whole system is broken and it's a wash. I don't pick out Mr. Adelson any more than I pick out [AFL-CIO President Richard] Trumka."

"So the fact is that the system is broken. I predict to you that there will be scandals and I predict to you that there will be reform again."

In a Friday interview on PBS, McCain had said that Adelson's contributions to Romney's presidential ambitions amounted to "foreign money" influencing a U.S. political campaign.

That remark seemed to be somewhat at odds with Romney's assertion at the Iowa State Fair last year that "corporations are people, my friend."

"I think that in that context he was talking about they are made up of people and that’s true in that context," McCain explained. "But to be corporations for purposes of involving campaigns, to be treated the same as people, I just don’t agree with that."

It thus came as a severe shock to learn that several of the greatest American corporate leaders were in league with Nazi corporations before and after Pearl Harbor, including I.G. Farben, the colossal Nazi industrial trust that created Auschwitz. Those leaders interlocked through an association I have dubbed The Fraternity. Each of these business leaders was entangled with the others through interlocking directorates or financial sources. All were represented internationally by the National City Bank or by the Chase National Bank and by the Nazi attorneys Gerhardt Westrick and Dr. Heinrich Albert. All had connections to that crucial Nazi economist, Emil Puhl, of Hitler's Reichsbank and the Bank for International Settlements.
The tycoons were linked by an ideology: the ideology of Business as Usual. Bound by identical reactionary ideas, the members sought a common future in fascist domination regardless of which world leader might further that ambition.
Several members not only sought a continuing alliance of interests for the duration of World War II but supported the idea of a negotiated peace with Germany that would bar any reorganization of Europe along liberal lines. It would leave as its residue a police state that would place The Fraternity in postwar possession of financial, industrial, and political autonomy. When it was clear that Germany was losing the war the businessmen became notably more "loyal.''
Then, when war was over, the survivors pushed into Germany, protected their assets, restored Nazi friends to high office, helped provoke the Cold War, and insured the permanent future of The Fraternity.
p xv
To this day the bulk o~ Americans do not suspect The Fraternity. The government smothered everything, during and even (inexcusably) after the war. What would have happened if millions of American and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey managers shipped the enemy's fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel? Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars' worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan? Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorization from Dearborn, Michigan? Or that Colonel Sosthenes Behn, the head of the international American telephone conglomerate ITT, flew from New York to Madrid to Berne during the war to help improve Hitler's communications systems and improve the robot bombs that devastated London? Or that ITT built the Focke-Wulfs that dropped bombs on British and American troops? Or that crucial ball bearings were shipped to Nazi-associated customers in Latin America with the collusion of the vice-chairman of the U. S. War Production Board in partnership with Goring's cousin in Philadelphia when American forces were desperately short of them? Or that such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?

It wasn't always that way but the Free Love Radicalism from the 60's has now given us a "new" reality of Affirmative Action, Feel Good Degrees and professorships based on skin darkness.
Such a reality must, by its insidious nature, eventually crumble and the evidence is all around us from the lowly schmuck in the Presidency to our declining global competition to eroding value of education to dependency on government. Government is Mother and we have no clue who the father is. We no longer care. It's the new culture.
Academia has not changed.

Tell us YOUR suggestions for making the UN more effective in addressing and preventing such atrocities WITHOUT resorting to war.
Or do you not give a damn about them?
My point was you right wingers using the gassing of the Kurds as a reason to invade Iraq is beyond stupid.

The UN does not ignore these issues but works toward resolution.

Some might be solvable through military action & some though sanctions.

Some cannot be resolved through the UN.
