    It hasn't been declared, but the government's War on Freedom is going really well. They are certainly winning that one.

    The War on Small Businesses is going pretty well too. The corporate/fascist state is making sure of that.

    The war on civil liberties is going rather splendidly.

    See, we need national peace. End the war on poverty at the same time as we end the war on Drugs.

    Just make users fully responsible for all the problems. No welfare for users, no food stamps, no housing assistance.

    Decrease welfare and HUD to bare sustenance levels. Dirt floors and outhouses were good enough for our grandparents. Let's bring 'em back. You should have a better quality of life with a part time minimum wage job than you do on welfare.

    Completely scrap the food stamp program. Replace it with soup kitchens or a meals on wheels program.

    If you are on public assistance for reasons other than a valid and confirmed disability, you should not be able to afford cell phones, gold grilz, after market rimz, late model vehicles, or other luxuries.

    Until we let people fail, and make not working less desirable than working, we are going the wrong way.

    Oh you tinfoil hatters. Such alarmists you are! JB will be along shortly to tell you to think more positively and to quit hating on America!
