Coming Soon: $500 for Every Newborn?!?

Original post made by Say No!, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Oct 7, 2009

"Imagine a world where every baby received a trust fund at birth. It might sound like a fairy tale, but being born into money--or at least into a $500 savings account--could soon become reality for all children born in the United States. Lawmakers are considering a bill that would give each newborn just that, with the goal of promoting savings that would later be used for education, a first home, or retirement. Here's what you should know about the ASPIRE ("America Saving for Personal Investment, Retirement, and Education") Act." - Yahoo Finance, 10/6/2009

You got to be kidding me! Is this what our new administration and our Congress is planning? This is now PURE SOCIALISM! How are we going to pay for it?

Lots of women & girls already receive money to care for their babies. Millions & millions of babies have been born and have been raised on welfare. When they have another baby, they get more money, so why not keep cranking them out? Are you behind the times or what?

In addition, they also get food stamps, medical care, housing and job training if they want it.
That adds up to more than $500 a month. Even if you're undocumented, you can get services totaling more than $$$ month, plus ER care and food from free pantries.

Who pay, you do! tee hee hee, tee hee're so far behind the times, what else don't you understand?

I posted this to let the general public to know what this country is coming to. Some people do need the support due to circumstances beyond their control. Some people simply abuse the system.

The BUS will stop somewhere, sometime and somehow! It looks like some people don't know how to get off the bus. So get a life!

Just another great program by our "Socialist in Chief". Today Attorney General Holder said the beating death was a wakeup call! Wakeup call? where has he been? murders in Chicago that are gang related? 800 have been killed in Afghanistan since 2001 and I bet but do not know that more have been killed in Chicago over the same time period. Holders solution? millions will be given to the Chicago school system to install metal detectors in the schools! The kid was beaten to death away from school with wooden 4 x 4's. What a bunch of geniuses!!!

I don't care who gets welfare. With so many people running off at the mouth because they hate President Obama, do something or shut up! Nothing that's being said by the extremists is much more than hate speech.

Mission accomplished is still going strong. Everyday more soldiers are being killed.

Everybody dies, too bad President Bush started a war and then disappeared after everybody started dying. He'a more than a multi-multi millionaire.

Metal detectors? What's so bad about that? Fix it if you don't like it!

I think that Mission Accomplished was always about killing Americans for money.

Cholo, so much hatred from you. You need to see a shrink!

I am sorry, right now who is the CIC? Who can't make up his mind? At least Bush made his mind as CIC.

As far as doing something, we have something called 'elections'. I am sure BHO is a one-term president.

Welfare should be used to bridge the difficult times not be the crutch for people to use forever. So, let's reform the system... oh, hold on... can't do it... there are politicians who loves to tailor to the poor and the helpless so they can keep themselves re-elected... instead, these politicians should be helping the poor and helpless to get off from the ground and make a life of themselves... I think you need to do the same...

This message is not a hate message instead it is suppose to be inspirational... of course, it will taken and interpreted as hateful. Can't win...
