If This Guy Is What The Future Of America Looks Like, We Are In BIG Trouble

Panic Button By John On FlickrShould taxpayer dollars be used to buy sushi and lobster for a young man whose future plans consist entirely of surfing and partying as much as he possibly can?  When I first saw the video that I am about to share with you, I was absolutely floored.  Recently, Fox News interviewed a self-described beach bum named Jason Greenslate who was very open about the fact that he has no problem sponging off of all the rest of us.  When he was asked if he ever had any interest in actually getting a job, his response was "not whatsoever".  Instead, he says that his job is to "make sure the sun's up and the girls are out" and he would rather spend his days partying.  Of course every American should be free to live their own lives as they see fit, but the problem is that Jason Greenslate is using food stamps to help support his lifestyle.  In fact, he took Fox News into the gourmet section of a local supermarket where he purchased sushi and lobster with his EBT card.  Sadly, he is just like millions of other young men in America today that seemingly have had the drive to succeed and to be independent totally sucked out of them.  But what is the future of America going to look like if we continue to produce millions upon millions of young men that have absolutely no desire to make a living, get married and start a family?

Posted below is video from the Fox News interview with Jason Greenslate.  If you are a taxpayer, this video should upset you greatly...

Of course the vast majority of those enrolled in the food stamp program are NOT like this.  As I wrote about the other day, the economic independence of middle class Americans is being systematically destroyed.  The percentage of self-employed Americans is at a record low and the percentage of Americans with a full-time job has dropped to a shockingly low level.

And the quality of our jobs continues to decline.  If you can believe it, 40 percent of all workers in the United States today actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968.

As a result of our ongoing economic problems, we have seen wave after wave of Americans forced to go on food stamps.  Between the year 2000 and the first inauguration of Barack Obama, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by 15 million.  Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has increased by 15 million more.

At this point we have a total of 47 million Americans on food stamps, and most of them definitely need the help.

But there are also those such as Jason Greenslate that are openly abusing the system and making it more difficult for those that actually need the help to get it.

Sadly, he is a product of the system that he was raised in.  There is a reason why so many young men are "checking out" and rejecting the traditional path of making a living, getting married and having a family.

In America today, the average American watches an average of 153 hours of television a month.  All of that "programming" has an extremely powerful impact on all of us.

The next time you watch a television show or a movie, take note of how young men are portrayed and watch what values are being promoted to them.  The truth is that they are not being taught to work hard, to be responsible or to want to be good fathers and good husbands.

It is easy to jump on Jason Greenslate, but the cold, hard reality of the matter is that there are millions of others out there just like him.  Consider the following numbers...

-In America today, 36 percent of all young adults in the 18 to 31 age bracket are currently living with their parents.

-Young men are nearly twice as likely to live with their parents as young women the same age are.

-In 2011, SAT scores for young men were the worst that they had been in 40 years.

-According to the New York Times, approximately 57 percent of all young people enrolled at U.S. colleges are women.  That means that only 43 percent are men.

-It is being projected that women will earn 60 percent of all Bachelor's degrees from U.S. universities by the year 2016.

-Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs.  Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.

-Between 1969 and 2009 the median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27 percent after you account for inflation.

-As I mentioned in a previous article, the marriage rate in the United States has fallen to an all-time low…

The marriage rate has fluctuated in the past, with dips in the 1930s and 1960s, but it has been in steady decline since the 1970s. Now, researchers report that the marriage rate has dropped to a new low of 31.1, meaning there are about 31 marriages in the U.S. for every 1,000 unmarried women, researchers found. In 1950, that number was 90.2. In 1920, it was 92.3.

-Back in 1950, 78 percent of all households in the United States contained a married couple.  Today, that number has declined to 48 percent.

-Today, an all-time low 44.2 percent of all Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 are married.

 

-The U.S. family is rapidly breaking down.  100 years ago, 4.52 were living in the average U.S. household, but now the average U.S. household only consists of 2.59 people.

 

-At this point, approximately one out of every three children in America lives in a home without a father.

Instead of endeavoring to become a husband, a father and a productive member of society, Jason Greenslate wants to party on the "safety net" forever.

But if we continue to have millions upon millions more Americans jump on to the "safety net" eventually it will break.

Just this week, Fox News reported on another stunning abuse of the safety net.  Large numbers of illegal immigrants have learned that they can get across the border and get a free hotel room by claiming that they have a "credible fear" of the Mexican drug cartels...

A sudden influx of illegal immigrants from Mexico requesting asylum is overwhelming immigration agents in San Diego, forcing agencies to rent hotel rooms for some undocumented families and release others to cities around the U.S.

Documents obtained exclusively by Fox News show Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been paying for hotel rooms for dozens of recently arrived families to relieve overcrowding inside the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa, Calif., processing centers. Some ICE employees are working overtime and others have been asked to volunteer to work weekend shifts. “Duties include intake, placements, transports and release of family groups and unaccompanied minors,” according to a memo obtained by Fox News.

The surge has raised suspicions about what is driving the influx, amid claims that illegal immigrants have learned they can attempt to get asylum by using a few key words -- namely, by claiming they have a "credible fear" of drug cartels.

Yes, we definitely want to help the poor and those that truly need our assistance.  But at this point about half of all Americans get money from the government every month, and that number is climbing with each passing day.

Meanwhile, our economic system continues to get even closer to a meltdown.  On Tuesday I wrote about the stunning cluster of Hindenburg Omens that we have seen lately, and now another one has appeared.  On Wednesday we witnessed the 6th Hindenburg Omen that we have seen in the last 8 trading days.  The only similar clusters in recent history occurred just before the last financial crash and just before the end of the "dotcom boom".

In addition, the level of margin debt continues to signal that big trouble is ahead.  We recently learned that margin debt hit a brand new all-time high of 384 billion dollars in April, and this is repeating a pattern that we saw just before the financial crash of 2008 and the busting of the dotcom bubble in 2000.

So what is going to happen when the next great financial crash arrives and millions upon millions more Americans are forced to turn to the government for assistance?

And what will happen when the government is forced to start cutting back on benefits because there isn't enough money?

Sadly, our leaders do not understand that a crash is coming.  They keep insisting that everything is going to be just fine.

But remember, the last financial crash caught them entirely by surprise as well.  For example, one of the top contenders to be the next head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, once made the following shocking admission about the last financial crisis...

“For my own part,” Ms. Yellen said, “I did not see and did not appreciate what the risks were with securitization, the credit ratings agencies, the shadow banking system, the S.I.V.’s — I didn’t see any of that coming until it happened.” Her startled interviewers noted that almost none of the officials who testified had offered a similar acknowledgment of an almost universal failure.

The blind are leading the blind, and none of them are going to see it coming.

But without a doubt the next great financial crash is rapidly approaching.

The system is failing, and people like Jason Greenslate are going to be in for a very rude awakening in the years ahead.

Now is the time to take responsibility, work hard and get prepared for the hard years that are coming.  Nobody else is going to do it for you, and when everything starts collapsing the government is NOT going to come riding to your rescue.

    Why do watch “The Biggest Loser” these people are losers they eat like pigs and lay around and don’t care and now there 500Lbs . Sounds like what are government is doing . Now we have to suffer and watch them be responsible and that care of themselves and get back to Normal. And when they do they’ll properly start eating again,

    the end…

  • Tim

    Absolutely outrageous. He’s driving a Cadillac Escalade, and he has money for cigarettes and alcohol. But he needs help to buy food? Right. What’s worse, the video stated that Obama eliminated the restrictions on food stamp eligibility in 2009 when he signed the stimulus bill. It used to be that people like him could only get food stamps for 3 months every 3 years. And this creep has the gall to say it’s all paid for by the taxpayers!

    There is no saving this nation.

    • Canuck

      I doubt the person being interviewed. It probably could be an indirect set-up used to incite hatred on the colored people who are usually stereotyped as being the majority of welfare recipients and food stamp collectors.

      • Hammerstrike

        Yes, actually they are the majority of welfare recipient and that is true not just in the United States, mind you!
        Check your privilege, lol!

        • Gay Veteran

          PROOF please

          • Hammerstrike

            usatoday30.usatoday.c o m/news/nation/2006-07-17-welfare-reform-cover_x.h tm

            About 38% of those still on welfare are black, 33% white and 24% Hispanic.

            And that, coming from politically correct smucks!

          • Gay Veteran

            you just destroyed your own argument, Blacks are not a majority of welfare recipients. But I guess you don’t understand the term “majority” as opposed to “plurality”

          • Hammerstrike

            Thou, they still have the largest number of Welfare recipient despite being only a small part of the US population.

            So proportionally…

          • Kyle Redemption

            They are poor. They are for the most part still uneducated. Many of Their schools just closed down. Many of Them work 2 jobs just to pay bills, and They still qualify for food stamps. If someone who has a job still can’t feed himself…

            Maybe the issue is minimum wage…

          • Kyle Redemption

            Okay fella

            So if you believe what that link brought me to, then you are believe that blacks are just naturally unintelligent. If that is the case, then you are saying they are “handicapped”, in which you are actually making an argument JUSTIFYING them getting food stamps and other aids

            Also how about the ones that finish schooling early? My friend’s niece, who is black, just got her BA, she is fifteen. Also MLK and other got degrees at young ages

            What is your point?

          • Kyle Redemption

            Okay fella

            So if you believe what that link brought me to, then you believe that blacks are just naturally unintelligent. If that is the case, then you are saying they are “handicapped”, in which you are actually making an argument JUSTIFYING them getting food stamps and other aids

            Also how about the ones that finish schooling early? My friend’s niece, who is black, just got her BA, she is fifteen. Also MLK and other got degrees at young ages

            What is your point? How about you be more direct

          • Hammerstrike

            It is more than merely lack of intelligence.
            It doesn´t mean that Whitney owes them a living. Neither does the intelligent blacks.
            Michael have been exposing the abysmall standards of educations in his country in at least one previous article. Sure there are some non-handicapped blacks but claiming to know one of them over the internet is not much of an argument.

          • Kyle Redemption

            I think you meant *claim*, not “claime”. Now I guess by your logic it would be fair for some blacks to marginalize us because of your lack of proper spelling.

            Or better yet, how about they judge us because of the actions of the KKK, Hitler, Emmit Till tragedy, slavery, all of these wars started by men who look like us, stealing this land from a Native Americans, stealing Australia from the aborigines of that land, etc. I could do on forever other groups have way more ammunition if that’s the game you want to play

            Do you see,what I’m getting at? No one is perfect. Not me, and certainly not you apparently. Marginalizing is pointless and all it does is create more issues

            Also in this particular case, singling out blacks really doesn’t make sense, when you yourself just stated that whites are also on food stamps. So, via deductive reasoning, you clearly think its okay for whites to do something but not blacks.

            Hey it’s not white vs black anymore. It’s greedy corporations vs the rest of us. Rich vs poor. Stop buying into all of this corporate owned media. They are distracting you from the REAL issue, which is GREED.

      • J M

        Well, actually, there are far more white people on welfare because there are far more white people in America than black people, but proportionally there are far more blacks on welfare because they only make up 13% of the population. That is just common knowledge in the U.S. The sad reality is that they vote for their own dependence on the government,which is funded by the taxpayer. I think the frustration comes from the statistical fact that black folks account for 40% of violent crime. Actually most are fine, but 5% of them are the real trouble makers who account for most of the problems. The hardest working most independent people I ever have know, and many dear friends, are immigrants from Africa who work harder than Americans and have large families and are better behaved than most Americans.

        • grizzer

          Ok IDIOT TRIPLE MORON since you like spelling with capitols. All these dirtbags need to do is buy all their food and other necessities with the EBT card, then they can spend the cash they’ve earned under the table (tax free) selling drugs or whatever not to buy food like they should but to buy their booz and sigs or flat screens, smart phones (oh I forgot, they get a phone for free also). Many of them also get housing subsidies and other goodies at the taxpayers expense all while not contributing a dime.

    I am glad Michael, that you mentioned most people on food stamps actually need them. There will always be people who will game the system. Look at the loophole, the people down on the boarder found. In any complex system loopholes will exist. The difference is, in the past when they were discovered they were closed. Now, they just seem to remain open. I believe this is just another facet of an ongoing plan. The more who come across the boarder, the lower wages will sink. One day anyone making more than minimum wage, will be considered the new middle class. Good luck with that, it is not going to be pretty.

    • FounderChurch

      NO ONE NEEDS FOOD STAMPS, or SS or Unemployment, or Workers Compensation, or SSI, or Welfare, or Student Loans, or Pell Grants, or SNAP, or Section 8, or any of a thousand other Welfare handouts.

      All these slacker takers need is a good beating, some forced hard labor in prison, and a kick in you know what.

          • Hammerstrike

            Oh, I wish!

            All about the bible? Then you should be authoritarian, insensitive and intolerant!
            Well, for the sake of the christian faith, not political correctness (since you don´t believe in tolerance and sensitivity for those who disagree with political correctness).
            That is what the old book advocates, the WBC folks are more right about ity than you, you are the wannabes, lol!

      • Alf

        I think Jesus will let all those condemnations you just spewed out come back on you in the end. You are a very unmerciful and heartless sounding person who sounds nothing like a TRUE Christian. And actually, God, Jesus and the Bible DON’T approve your message… Ever read the Sermon on the Mount?

        • Hammerstrike

          LOL no, the unmerciful are those who would have others work so they can live the good life!

          A true christian helps himself before praying for help, not asking for handouts!

          • Alf

            So then what you are saying is Christians shouldn’t help those in need?

          • FounderChurch

            The Bible is very very specific about charity. You DO NOT extend it to everyone, with no conditions attached. Paul said, care for the poor widows in the church, BUT ONLY those widows of YOUR Church, and only those in your church that had worked all their life serving others and on and on with conditions the poor widow had to meet to be given any aid. There is no example in the Bible of any charity or even salvation that is given unconditionally. You cannot even be saved without meeting certain strict conditions. TOTAL Repentance being just one of them.

          • Alf

            I agree that people who can work should work, I also agree that those who are abusing the system, like the beach bum documented here, should not receive anything if they are just being lazy. But those who truly need help we are commanded to help. You are not full of grace and truth. You talk about cherry picking, but you are doing that very thing. Since when did Jesus say to beat the poor of the earth, force them to hard labor in prison and kick them in the you know what? That is what they do in North Korea.

          • ArigatouGozaimas

            So according to you, the promise of the cross is a lie? Are you sure you’re not reading the Koran?

          • Hammerstrike

            They can but only those in need who struggles on, at least tries to improve their situation.

        • FounderChurch

          I read, study and believe ALL of the Bible, and don’t just cherry pick and take verses out of context.

          It is the ENTIRE BIBLE that counts. The Sermon on the Mount is just one small piece, and without every other word in the total Bible it is worthless. Mercy must be tempered with Justice not taken alone like a pill.

            You are simply a liar. You should be ashamed of yourself for your bigoted un-Christian lies. Knock it off.

            I did say EVERYONE should work as a basic requirement of citizenship.

            Handicapped people CAN, and SHOULD work at what they are able to do.

            NO ONE SHOULD PARASITE OFF OF THE REST OF US. Clearly you believe in parasitism.

            Even children should work at things they can do. It will make them better citizens.

            And even the rich should be required to work as a matter of principle, again at something they can do, and want to do, and they should be heavily fined in proportion to their wealth if they refuse to work at SOMETHING.

      • davidmpark

        Really? So, my wife with her severe TBI, epilepsy, diabetes, cognitive and emotional limitations should be placed in a forced labor camp?

        Are you planning on tattooing numbers on her for easy ID?

        And if she can’t work, it’s the firing squad? Burial in an unmarked grave with the rest of those killed for being useless eaters?

        Isn’t that what the NAZI’s did?

        Remember, the first victims of the holocaust were the German disabled. They were the guinea pigs for what latter happened to the Jews, Gypsies, Mormons, and dissidents.

            Now I’m a Democrat?! I’ve been accused of being the enemy by Left and Right on this forum… kind of a laugh. :)

            These programs were not created for leeches; they were created for people in exactly our situation – a very rare scenario.

            This surfer guy is exploiting it for his own gain. Yet, you accuse me and family of greed and being a leech on your precious, failing society.

            I hate being on these programs. And you would punish us for not being exactly perfect like you…

          • davidmpark

            And to make this more interesting for you: did you know that it’s against the law for me and my family to get off these programs?

            No, seriously. For most people getting off is easy; just don’t participate or use the welfare. We don’t have that choice. Since our reasons are for vulnerable adult and child welfare purposes; the Depart of human services won’t allow us to get off unless I can prove the wife has recovered 100%.

            A few years ago I intentionally neglected re-certification to get us off the programs. And got a very nasty visit from the adult and child protection agencies about it. :(

            So, since you claim I’m a parasite on your perfect society, then what do you suggest I do about? Tried everything else to get off the programs.

          • FounderChurch

            WE live in an evil sick society, so I’m not recommending anyone do anything except declare that this society needs to be changed drastically.

            Until those changes are made in law, I don’t blame anyone for collecting anything they can, or must collect. I’m not saying anyone should refuse these hand-outs, and if I was qualified to get them, I would. I’m saying we have to change this sick demonic and evil system, and those who don’t want to change it are the ones responsible for it being the sick thing it is.

        Not one word of your claptrap would be approved nby God…are you a shill or troll trying to get people to believe this media stereotype of hate-filled christians who are all racists and bigots?…go away evil person…
        Jesus fed the masses, healed the sick and downtrodden and offered the water of life so that not just their bodies, but also their spirits would be nourished. The Bible I read speaks of a loving Father who does not wish that anyone should perish….
        The satanic claptrap you spew talks of beating people like dogs and letting children starve…sicko…

        • FounderChurch

          You know nothing about the Bible, God or Jesus Christ, and it is doubtful you are any kind of Christian, but in any case you are a sloppy agape so-called Christian who sees only one side of bible verses. God will judge both you and I and I am confident in the outcome. You are just a left wing Demon-rat.

          • Alf

            You are right, God will judge us all and it will be with the measure that we judged others, remember… “And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” Love covers a multitude of sins, not hate and self righteousness.

      Try reading an article on the browser.com written by globalist banker who tells us that previously USA had 80% of the wealth and rest of the world20%, but future globalization will turn the USA into having only 40% and rest of wealth is in other countries at 60%, you can see this country is going down the toilet financially and there will only be a serfdom very lower class and minority(99%),with the rich: less than 1% that will be ultra wealthy! No more middle class kiss the American dream goodbye, hello lifetime nightmare! This is why we need to shitcan globalizaion, nafta and cafta and start rebuilding our local economy in the USA! Tax the hell out of all imports and rebuild local industry here in America, otherwise our GNP will continue to go down every year, as well as our national wealth, and we will become slaves of China. WAKEUP AMERICA!

    I come from wealthy but corrupt city where you can join the strong political party and plunder as much as you want once they place you in position to do so. Mentality is such that you just care about yourself and not about public finances and well being. Then with new money you bribe local judges, cops and so on. I had a friend whose father was keeping bags of public money in his house while I was struggling to buy clothes for school. Sadly, I see this happening to the USA.

  • callmecordelia1

    I was in a grocery store one Tuesday afternoon (usually very slow) and it was crazy– people everywhere. When I got up to the checkout guy, I asked what was going on because it felt like a busy Saturday. He said “First of the month. Food stamp day.” I realized at that moment that I was witnessing the modern version of the bread lines of the 1930s. And that crowd of people in my small town is just a speck in the whole scheme of things. When that net comes crashing down, there will be a lot of people really hurting. Sad statistics up there.

    • Jodi

      That explains it. I don’t usually shop during the week but a couple of months ago we shopped on a Tues & it was super busy. I couldn’t wrap my head around what was going on. It was the weirdest thing. Thanks for the info, I’ll keep that in mind from now on.

      • Jodi

        Absolutely, it’s scary to think of how many people rely on those food stamps and they don’t have a clue on what’s about to happen to them.

        • Hammerstrike

          Thankfully, after a week, their lack of number would make them less scary!

    • Flossie

      Ha! Exact same thing happened to me. I went to my usual grocery store on a Monday morning and it was *packed*. (This particular store’s clientele was about 90% black — and the prices were great!) Turns out it happened to be the first of the month and the welfare folks — the takers — were on a spree. Every damned one of them was hollering into a cellphone and had a car parked out front — half of them large, late-model SUVs. Afterward, I trudged across the street to wait for the CTA bus. There was one other lady waiting for a bus, another white lady carrying grocery bags. The longer we waited, the angrier I got.

But, what I’ve noticed, unlike the blacks, whites tend to avoid shopping on SNAP day to avoid the “shame” and stigma. Also, the majority of white Snap recipients sell/trade their Food stamps for cash. Could it be that you were in a “black” part of town? Just my $.02…….God bless.

      It’s called BPA – a feminizing chemical that mimics estrogen, found in plastics, was ubiquitous until a few years ago. That combined with the cultural programming Michael writes about = death to men (as well as sky-rocketing pregnancy rates for hyper-sexualized teenage girls). Do research for a study conducted with mice and BPA – the female mice refused to mate with BPA-males. Also, consider this – if you’re a twenty-something single guy who lives at home and can’t get a job, how are you going to take a girl out on a date, much less sustain a relationship, assuming you have the confidence? Welcome to my world.

      • Canuck

        Don’t be hopeless mate…The media and schools give a false image of men which makes women scorn the opposite gender.
        The economic crisis affects the future, us Milennials, and not entirely the whining upper and middle class babyboomers who worked comfortable jobs for most of their lives.
        The poor babyboomers who never had a chance to a white collar job I have my sympathy for, but anyone who lived good for over 30 year of their adult lives shouldn’t be complaining.

      Single motherhood…. Per YOUR government force, men have no ownership of said children. Men are merely the paycheck. Why do you suppose men will not commit ? A generation of men did not one day wake up and say, to hell with that whole deal. Men have changed to meet the changes that are thrust upon them.
      No rughts to my children – screw parenthood.
      Loose everything in marriage – screw commitment.
      Work 70 hours a week to feed this misandric beast – screw advancement, do enough to get by and enjoy life.Your religion of man hate and perpetual victim hood has almost collapsed what was the greatest nation on the Earth. When it finally does collapse, don’t expect that men are going to jump in, work hard to rebuild it or allow you females to ‘revert’ back to woman hood. Women will be on their own to be tortured, raped and killed by roving bands of marauders, trying desperately to blame men for this as well.

  • AS55423

    I was having a conversation the other day with a friend , she said, What’s wrong with people their rudeness cruelty and so forth ? Boy, our country sure is messed up.” Then I said, “you know what will solve that problem? ” Hyperinflation! or a collapse ”

    “Well it probably won’t be peaches and cream, but I also don’t think it will last very long. 6 months would be my best guess, but it could even… be as short as 3 months or less for the chaotic part. And yes, it wipes the slate clean and returns us to a reality-based existence, where the trough of free stuff is no longer full for the taking from the bottom to the top. Socialized healthcare will have to be actually paid for in real terms and will therefore be reconsidered. Illegal (im)migration will become an outflow problem rather than an inflow one. The Military and the never ending wars and these out of control government departments will have to be downsized.

    Unsustainable entitlement programs will all have to be reconstructed from scratch since they will be wiped out in real terms. Nominal entitlements will be erased, but that doesn’t mean we will let the most-vulnerable die in the streets. Instead, they will be reconstructed based on the reality of the government’s income from taxes, rather than from taxes, borrowing and printing combined. The entire tax system will have to be reassessed. We will be back to reality! I imagine it will be quite messy, but WTF is it now? I look forward to hyperinflation or a collapse ” Can’t be any worse then this disaster we have now.

  • davidmpark

    “So what is going to happen when the next great financial crash
    arrives and millions upon millions more Americans are forced to turn to
    the government for assistance?

    And what will happen when the government is forced to start cutting back on benefits because there isn’t enough money?”

    First, it will be the usual socialism approaches of “support your community”, followed by “hoarding must be a crime! Someone should make those selfish #$%&’s give us their food! It’s against my rights to starve!” leading into a number of reactions, including some I heard from friends and old neighbors when asking them about plans if SHTF.

    I won’t name names – have to protect identities. One said that my food storage “already belonged to everyone; it’s just mine for now.” Another neighbor said several years ago, and I’m not joking, that “he’d trade his daughter to me for food if he had to.” She was over 18 at the time, but living at home with no job. And some distant relatives (note the plural) once said they would “leave their husbands and move in with me and be my mistresses.”

    A lot of people I spoke with seem to not want to prepare for themselves. Many claim to have plans for even worse outcomes should things turn sour! I hope they were all joking with me… but their lifestyles and actions on preparations makes me think there was some truth there.

    Seriously, these government programs should be there for those who have no choice but to go on them due to impossible circumstances. Not for some beach bum to stay a high school teen his whole life. Flaunting gourmet foods bought at taxpayer expense so he can be a child with his drunk buddies.

    And California didn’t make confirmations like Utah does. Does the surfer child work on building up stacks of supporting documentation 1 – 3 inches high every 3 months? No! Does he have to prove things to review boards and explain some of his claims? No! All he did was an application and present ID.; cause that’s all California requires. Most likely, I’d bet that the bureaucrats filled out his paperwork for him; just a theory.

    Life is not high school, and the States and governments shouldn’t try to create it as such! Leave it behind after graduation. These welfare programs are very difficult to be on. Besides, this world is an amazing place! Why not build yourself up to be industrious and charitable. To be an industrious adult is always our goal as human beings!

    Few days ago I was in a small corner grocer in Philadelphia. A foreign Muslim woman was paying for her family’s purchases with a food stamp debit card. The card was not working. She pulled out another card. Did not work. Pulled out another and it worked. The cashier told me the woman has the cards in the names of her small children and said the woman has 5 cards. That’s just one case with a woman who could barely speak English gaming the system. Imagine the scale of the fraud across millions. Oh, and I always see tents set up on the streets giving out Obamaphones. The country is being drained.

    • El Pollo de Oro

      I also live in Philadelphia (or as they call it in some parts of town, Killadelphia). In some parts of town, you’re seeing food stamps and poverty galore. In other parts of town, you’re seeing extreme gentrification and yuppiedom galore. And if you’re like most of my neighbors (blue-collar Catholic, just barely middle class, make too much for food stamps, totally priced out of Center City, University City, Manayunk and even parts of South Philly), you’re screwed.

  • ArigatouGozaimas

    The stock market has its ups and downs, so I don’t like the sensational headlines declaring that it is down big or up big. However, the yield on the treasury hit 2.8 today.

    this is all about speculation on what action the Fed will take.

    tick…. tick…. tick…. tick….

  • DownWithFox

    The beach bum is a Fox news paid actor, not hard to notice, the guy can be a bum but I doubt he is as dumm as he seems to be… Stupid Fox news!

  • SSG CRUZ

    Michael,

    What’s more disturbing is that a large amount of U.S. service members are on the dole as well. Most are good Americans, hard workers and have sacrificed on several deployments away from their families. Sad to say there are many in the service that I call “welfare soldiers” and are just riding the gravy train. It all seems to be falling apart and it’s becoming very demoralizing. I’m starting to believe we need this coming financial collapse. I’m of the opinion that America needs humbling.

    Am I wrong to think this way?

  • ian

    this sites credibility has gone out of the window by using a clip from FOX news.

    • markthetruth

      Wrong ! Both sides of the news Stations use the same tactics. And rush to get a story that will stir the pot !

      the end…

    • Tim

      I don’t see how.

      • ian

        because fox news is nothing more than a propaganda machine for wall street and the corporate elite. Do the math.

  • ian

    FOX news will have some credibility when they interview the corporate fat cats who are sponging millions from the system everyday.

    • El Pollo de Oro

      Ian: I disagree with a lot of what you have to say, but the part about “corporate fat cats who are sponging millions from the system everyday” is absolutely right. So i had to vote your post up. Any Republi-Con who supports huge bank bailouts has no right to call himself a fiscal conservative. Fascist, yes. Fiscal conservative, no.

  • tg

    Costs way more to keep this bum at $2,400 a year compared to hundreds of thousands a year if he ends up in jail stealing to live. The bankers and government are the real parasites.

  • Vlad

    It should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that Jason Greenslate is a ringer. He is a plant set up to enrage everyone. It is all an act. Come on, a Cadillac Escalade, lobster and susi. They really overplayed their hand. But when you playing to the average, moronic Fox viewer, that’s the way to go. The war on the poor has begun and it aint going to be pretty!

  • Ralfine

    Yes, the taxpayers will be angry, but for all the wrong reasons.

    They most likely are angry at those who live off food stamps but not at those who don’t pay enough wages for a full-time job to feed a family.

  • Ralfine

    We started with

    Work -> Success -> Happy

    which became

    Work -> Fun -> Happy

    and then

    Money -> Drugs -> Happy

    and with addiction

    Money -> Drugs

    Instead of bringing work and success back to the young, the government is fighting drugs.

  • Dr. Who?

    At first I saw this and was utterly ticked off. But think about it. The guy is probably in his 20′s. He is WHITE, which is one strike against him in the job market. He is a MALE, which is two strikes again him in the job market. And he lives in California, which means he has absorbed idiocy on a 24/7 basis.

    Not an excuse, but rather a reason. A savage, yes, he is. But a person who faces serious odds against him by policies that are backed by the force of govt.

    A victim? Yes. But let us not adopt the approach of the black grievance industry or feminists. I would hope that we will continue a we will overcome attitude.

    Tempered with some compassion.

    Cheers, all!

  • Jagrick

    Not sure what that food cost he bought with his EBT card but think about it. That could be over half of what he gets a month as it is a limited amount a month so spend it how you see fit but don’t whine when begging for food after a week. It is just like idiots that work and spend their check foolishly.

  • maddog

    I posted this a couple days ago “Until 2 days ago I believed if people were informed it could be turned around and the US would come back. I now know there is no hope in repairing the damage.” Based on many of the comments to this article I now know I’m 100% correct. I could go on and on but I will only comment on a couple posts.

    1)” It is just like idiots that work and spend their check foolishly”

    Nope – its the fools money

    2)” They most likely are angry at those who live off food stamps but not at those who don’t pay enough wages for a full-time job to feed a family.”
    Nope – Acquire the skills required to demand higher wages. Oh and by the way, one can also not “make” a family until one can pay for a family. Do you really think I should pay for others romps?
    Choose to choose to keep pants on.

    Michael, I know you uphold free speech, but I have a feeling that some female-only organizations are prowling on this forum ever since some commentors talked the truth as to why young adult white males, and maybe all males are disadvantaged in this current quasi-communist regime.
    The fehminists groups are placing their eyes on this forum to hide the truth.

    • davidmpark

      They’re just looking for some good men to be “daddy” next.

      Sorry – I’m taken! :)

  • A D

    I would say 60-70 maybe more are on the ‘FREEBIE’ programs. The system will implode under the weight of crushing DEBT as designed. There is NO way the freebie programs are going to be taken away. 0Bamacare will finish off the wreckage. USSR style healthcare which means you are on your own…

  • cpgone

    All food stamps are about 7% of the military industrial complex budget.

    SEVEN PERCENT !!!!!!

    Investigate that.

  • cpgone

    All food stamps are about 7% of the military industrial complex budget.

    SEVEN PERCENT !!!!!!

    I wonder why FOX doesn’t investigate that?

  • Ralfine

    Lets have a look at some alarming trends today:

    - Walmart issues profit warning: the profit this quarter is less than expected;
    - Reduced jobless figures in the US cause fear in traders that the Fed will curb printing money;

    Warning and fear in the US stock market.

    But wait a minute. What happened really?

  • Bad_Mr_Frosty

    Of course they would use a White guy to show a “typical” welfare parasite.

    In reality, African-Americans at 14% of the total population use over 30% of the entire welfare budget. That doesn’t factor all the ones in prison getting 3 meals a day, free cable TV and medical care.

    Yes, I’m racist for pointing this fact out.

    • Gay Veteran

      hope you enjoy paying taxes for people who violate our idiotic drug laws. Prohibition only produces crime and corruption, AND increases the government’s powers.

  • PeterAndrewNolan

    Yep..women demanded the welfare state. Women demanded the guvment steal the children and houses off men….and then you are all surprised when a young man refuses to get married, buy a house and “settle down” when everything he ever works for can be taken from him by the power of the state. And if that young man objects he will be HATED ON.

    How do I know this? It happened to me. After raising 4 children during a 23 year relationship including 18 years of marriage? I was left with MINUS USD60,000 and I have been HATED ON for protesting this unjustice and demanding a remedy for the crimes committed against me.

    I applaud this young man for doing what he is doing. He is exactly what you people deserve from your young men.

    • guest

      American women are, conditionally, one category above masturbation.Does she expect you to buy her dinner, drinks, movie tickets?
      Does she expect you to pretend that you respect her ?
      Napkins are cheaper and less trouble.
      Looking to settle down with a genuine woman ?
      Look to the Eastern bloc countries, or the Orient. High quality females. Genuine, real. Do not accept the poor facsimile that American women have become.
      In this case, made in China can be a very good thing.

  • ian

    Amen. Finally someone sees through the lies and distortions of FOX news.

  • hi im also a leech

    It doesn’t bother me in the least brother. You can’t stop a runaway train. I’m fixing to do the same as he is, climbing on to the anchor that’s dragging everything down.Work is for saps, all you get is screwed, minus the kiss. Enjoy the decline and let’s crash this f**ker. Only after can we rebuild.

  • FounderChurch

    THE WHOLE MATTER OF CHARITY is poorly understood, especially by so-called Christians and others as well.

    Charity IS NOT handouts. It can be a hand up, but never ever a handout. It is to be extended ONLY to those who are Saved, Worthy, and Deserving. Which is very few. It is not to be given to unbelievers, criminals and lazy bums.

    For example, if you give a dollar to a bum sitting on the sidewalk YOU are responsible for what he does with that dollar. If he buys drugs or alcohol and dies as a result YOU have killed him.

    If he uses the dollar to buy a knife and uses it to kill someone YOU have killed that person. You can’t throw the rock and then hide your hand.

    You are responsible for the end use and the end result of your giving. Not only that but it you give handouts through YOUR government and it results in the person being pushed further into poverty or crime, YOU PERSONALLY are to blame.

    Of course you Democrat Heathens know all this and that is why you are charity PIMPs, and PIMP the poor in order to hurt them and everyone else.

    What a person who lost his job needs IS NOT a check but another job. What a disabled person needs is NOT a check but a job they can do with whatever disability they have. We need to busy ourselves in creating jobs for every single person in this country from age 2 to 102, NO EXCEPTIONS. Jesus said, “Neither shall ye work, neither shall ye eat.” NO EXCEPTIONS FOR ANY REASON.

    Now copy this down somewhere and refer to it often, and teach it to others.

    AND BTW GET SOME EDUCATION WHILE YOU ARE AT IT. MOST PEOPLE POSTING HERE ARE FUNCTIONALLY ILLITERATE.

    AND Google “FounderChurch” and start your education and service to God and Country right there.

  • Joe

    You losers are making fun of food stamps? The cost of that is meaningless compared to all those dependents living well off the military welfare programs. Boeing, Lockheed, Haliburton, the list goes on and on. How about the Bush family? They get tens of millions in welfare payments each year. Food, travel expenses, health care. Imagine the cost of that family to America. Barbara is the definition of a welfare queen. How much is spent on welfare to members and former members of the federal reserve cartel? No one even knows because they dont have to report to their subjects -us. But rest assured it is billions

  • Guest

    “Beach Bum” propaganda piece relies on the fact Americans can not do math. How many lobster dinners $200 a month food aid program buys? I guess two or three. He still needs to eat 27 extra days, pay bills, pay car insurance, cell phone fees etc… OK, he takes the money but where his actual income comes from question was not asked.

  • guest

    Lol, one man has learned how to turn the tables on the parasite women. Thanks for the how to dear.

  • J M

    The socialist rot that is destroying America from within. All paid for with bought votes.

  • heather

    Leave it to FOX News to scare you to believe this is a normal beneficiary of the program. Because of a few bad apples the people in need must suffer and do without.Why not an article on Snap beneficiaries who struggle to make the benefits last all month? How about an article on Corporate subsidies? When companies start treating employees fairly and pay a livable wage, I imagine people might get back to work. Right now, I don’t see any incentives to work for “the man” when all they provide is crappy pay that can’t sustain a low end lifestyle. They are too busy catering to Wall Street and could not care a less about us. We are just supposed to be grateful that we have a job.
