A rubber-nosed woodpecker, Black youth picking farm crops, and no cash money for the poor and disabled in Minnesota

New York Congressional candidate wants to bus unemployed inner city youth to farms to pick crops.

Republicans are more frustrated than a dog trying to bury fresh shit on a marble floor.  They are taking their frustration out on welfare recipients and those on SSI. Republicans want them to be poorer than they already are. They see no reason for them receiving public assistance. 

Republicans do not want the government to mail poor people monthly/semi-monthly checks.  It's factually known that these deadbeats are only going to cash the checks, go shopping to buy fancy tennis, go to strip clubs, buy cigarettes, alcohol and crack cocaine. And you  just know they are going to buy that hip-hop music!

By God! Republicans was not having no more of this high living at the expense of hardworking taxpayers!

These welfare slugs--all of whom are Democrats--have no idea what it’s like to earn a living for themselves. Why no self respecting Republican would be caught waiting for a monthly government check! Every worthwhile Republican in this country own homes, have at least two cars, checking and saving accounts, decent jobs. Republicans are doing great! That’s the American way. But those Democrats are a different story. They are the reason America is in the economic shape its in! Democrats are going to send America to hell in a bread basket if changes are not forth coming.

In Minnesota lunatic Michele Bachmann’s  and Republicans are stretching their attacks on  the poor. They are stepping on the necks of disabled people. They want to make it illegal for freeloaders to get “emergency cash assistance.” Republicans want to make it a crime for the disabled and welfare recipients to have more than $20.00 in their pocket during any calendar month! After pending legislation becomes law the recipients will be issued debits cards. No more cash advances.

"This represents a change from their initial proposal, which banned them from having any money at all," writes  reporter Ken Layhe.

My guess is if freeloaders, I mean recipients, have utilities and phone bills to pay they can just scratch them off their “luxury items” list. If the welfare bums, I mean recipients, refuse this deal they can get off the government dole and find a job. There is plenty of work for anybody who wants to work.  Welfare recipients and the disabled folk just have to get off their backsides, look for work and fill out applications. Abracadabra! They will probably get hired on the spot.

That easy, huh?

This is like sending a rubber-nosed woodpecker into a one tree forest, expecting it to peck its heart out, getting no results. After a while the disadvantaged woodpecker will realize it has no good choices in this one tree forest.

“So, the poorest families and the poorest disabled adults would be unable to take any of this money as cash, even though poor people by design are kept from having bank accounts or a checkbook, which is why they usually pay bills and rent in cash,” writes Ken Layhe in a piece titled Minnesota Republicans to Outlaw Poor People Having Money.

“House Bill 171 would make it so that families on MFIP – and disabled single adults on General Assistance and Minnesota Supplemental Aid – could not have their cash grants in cash or put into a checking account. Rather, they could only use a state-issued debit card at special terminals in certain businesses that are set up to accept the card,” he writes.

If this idea catches on every state with a Republican governor will get the notion to copy Minnesota.

The Layhe article reminds me of a candidate running for congress in New York. His name is Jack Davis, a tea partier. Republicans have refused to endorse him. They won't touch him with a 10 foot pole. Davis says if he is elected he will put Americans back to work! That sounds as good as a stack of meatballs on a plate of spaghetti. It's also a good campaign promise.

I was loving his idea about putting people back to work until I read more of his platform. He said Mexican farm workers should be deported. He says they can be replaced with unemployed African American inner city youth, all of whom can be bussed to various farms to pick crops! He said they can expect to earn a fair wage, whatever that means. White kids were not mention. I guess it's a Black thing only.

I think all of this "let’s get poor folk legislation" is all about 2012, and getting poor folk so mad at President Obama they will switch parties and vote Republican. Republicans are determined to push the poor and disabled further down the well of poverty. They say, when in front of a media camera, “It’s President Obama’s fault. He’s trying to take away your rights. He works for Wall Street not Main Street. He doesn’t share our values. He wants to keep you poor!”

"Blame it on Obama” is the number one hit song on the Republican’s hit parade of favorite lies and other political mess.
