“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Democrats lure voters with promises of bags of cash

With the economy struggling from high gas prices, craven democrats can be counted on to seize the opportunity to seduce as many Americans as they can onto the welfare and unemployment handout roles.....

WASHINGTON - The House on Thursday approved an extra three months of jobless benefits for all unemployed Americans, knowing the plan's chances are slight in the Senate and almost nonexistent at the White House.

After failing to get a veto-proof two-thirds margin by three votes on Wednesday, Democrats got an exact two-thirds margin on Thursday with a 274-137 vote — the amount needed to overcome a threatened presidential veto.

Democrats said they pushed the legislation through to the Senate because Americans need help in a slumping economy.

"The American people are waiting to see if Congress is going to help them," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

No Nancy, only idle reprobates, or as we conservatives like to call them--core democrat voters, are waiting for Congress to help them. The rest of America gets out and finds work when things take a downturn. It doesn't matter that House democrats know the bill will fail, the target audience will get the message that in order to receive fabulous cash and prizes from democrats for not working, they have to vote democrat.

Here are a couple of democrat core voters....unemployed, shiftless, and waiting for Congress to help them.

I really hate when people blame Bush for high unemployment rates, when the democrats are in congress passing bills such as this, that make is almost senseless to work for the same amount of money that the government is willing to give you. This is why our economy is struggling, the middle class, the people that drive the economy, are being taxed to death to pay for people to be lazy!

It doesn't matter who is to blame for the disastrous economy! I am lucky to be in healthcare and have a graduate degree, so I'm thankful to have a job. PERIOD.

But, I have a friend who is 55 years old, was a plumber, lost his job when the company he worked for closed and nobody will hire him because he's 55 with diabetes, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, and numerous other health conditions. This guy can't even get a job at Wal-Mart as a greeter and he doesn't "qualify" for disability. He's lost his home and his car. I know he's been out looking for a job EVERY day. He has NO MORE unemployment benefits and no insurance. I offered up my guest suite upstairs as we have been friends for many years and was previously my neighbor.

Our screwed up president's free handouts are ridiculous considering there are older people who can't find a job. What is wrong with this screwed-up nation of ours?
