There Is No War On The Poor

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

One of the common fear mongering tactics Democrats love to use, is to tell low income people Republicans hate them. This creates a us versus them tactic that allows democrats to thrive.

Socialist Democrats go on to tell low income people how Republicans want to see poor people starve and have their benefits taken away. Again, all lies.

The only “war” going in is a war on laziness. Welfare should not be a career path. Nor should generations of families be raised on welfare. To get people off welfare, welfare should be as uncomfortable as possible. This means just the very bare basics.

Chances are, if someone qualifies for welfare, they qualify for free college through the local community college. If someone is in public housing, why aren’t they attending community college? The answer suggest they are to lazy to better themselves.

Democrats Are The Party Of Hate

Democrats Continue With The Russian Narrative

Kevin Felts political commentator

Democrats continue to play the Russian narrative. Meaning, they refuse to accept voters rejected the progressive ideas of the Democrat party.

Some recent events:

Rudy Giuliani may be joining the Trump team.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) sued President Trump and Wikileaks.

The DNC is claiming President Trump colluded with the Russians so Trump would win the 2016 presidential elections. However, President Trump has been investigated for almost two years, and so far no evidence has been found.

Some people may say, “No evidence “yet” has been found.” Consider this – After the Vegas shooting by Stephen Paddock, just hours after the shooting the FBI said there was no connection with the Islamic State.

It took the FBI just hours to clear Stephen Paddock of any connection to the Islamic State, yet President Trump has been under investigation for almost two years. So either the FBI was lying about Stephen Paddock and any ties to the Islamic State, or there the investigation in Trump and Russia is nothing more than a witch hunt.

Let’s take a few minutes and talk about why Democrats lost over 1,000 state seats between 2008 – 2016, and why they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

Democrats Continue Blatant Racism

Democrat Cycle Of Bad Policy

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Make no doubt about it, the Democrat party is a party founded on bad policies, then blaming others when the bad policy needs to be changed.

Democrat cycle of policies:

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Rinse, repeat until desired social agenda is achieved.

Democrats Reaction To State Of The Union Address

Kevin Felts political commentator

Anyone who is on social media has surely seen the pictures of Democrats reacting to President Donald Trumps State of the Union address. In all honesty, we should not be surprised.

Democrats have a lot to be worried about. The 2018 mid-term elections will be at the end of 2018, and with a booming economy, voting democrat means voting against ones on best interest.

The Democrat platform is built on fear, and has always been built on fear. This goes all the way to before the United States Civil War. Democrats will whisper in your ear, “See that person over there, they want to hurt you. Don’t worry though, I am going to protect you.”

With the passage of the Civil Rights act Democrats had to find another group to demonize, so they slowly changed tactics to demonizing white male conservatives. Democrats will whisper in the ear of minorities, “See that Republican, they want to hurt you.” Usually, the implied hurt is through cutting social benefits, or enforcing immigration laws.

Now that Trump has shown he is will to work with Democrats on immigration, and has shown he is putting the United States first, it is getting more difficult for Democrats to demonize him.

When Trump talked about minority unemployment being at an all time low, Democrats sat on their hands.

When Trump talked about fair trade deals, Democrats sat on their hands.

Support for gun control fading

Support for gun control fadingPlease Rate This Article Good news ladies and gentlemen.  The Independent Journal Review posted an article detailing how Americans are Getting Tired of Gun Control Pushes. Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats.  This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce […]

Parents of daughters likely to vote republican

There is an article on yahoo shine about why parents of daughters are more likely to vote Republican than to vote democrat.

While the article is “kind of” insightful, I think it misses the mark. Rather than focusing on core Republican values, the article goes off into left field talking about sex.

Sex is a small part of the issue. The larger issue at hand is this thing called “responsibility.”

The article states,

Parents of daughters, it seems, have an interest in reducing male promiscuity.

Personally, I think male promiscuity has little to do with the issue. The larger issue here is taking responsibility for your actions.

The State Of Social Security Disability

Do you want to know how bad things are? Do you “really” want to know? Chances are, if you pass your time watching sports rather then watching the news, or reading gossip websites rather then reading news websites, you probably do not want to read this article.

Since 2009, an average of 150,000 jobs are created every month inside the United States.

During that same time, an average of 250,000 people apply for Social Security Disability every month.Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

In other words, 100,000 more people apply for social security disability every month over those that find a job.

Around 14 million people currently draw Social Security disability.

Source14 Million Americans Don’t Work Due To Disability, And The Number Is Growing

The system is broken. 100,000 more people file for SS disability rather then find a job every month. It is just a matter of time before the financial system collapses.

It is impossible for 150,000 workers to support 250,000 people on disability, and that is the direction we are headed.

Child Support Social Inequality

Here we have another example of child support social inequality – the father is ordered not to have anymore kids, but the mothers are not ordered to do anything.

Society points the finger at the father and says – “do not have more kids then you can support.” What does the mother get? Does she ridiculed for having sex with a man that does not want to support the children they made? Is the mother ordered to get a job and provide health insurance?

The last time I went to a child support review, I saw several dads being put on probation, one father was arrested and handcuffed right there in the court room. Some dads were sentenced to 2 years in jail, but the sentence was deferred as long s they were making payments. If they missed a payment he would be arrested and put in jail.

During the time I was sitting in the court room watching these fathers being sentenced, not a single mother was charged with not paying child support. There were several mothers who did not show up for their hearing a bench warrant was issued for their arrest, not a single deadbeat mom appeared before the judge.

The nation is screwed, and I mean royally screwed.

National Debt

The government is so far into debt, there is no way future generations can pay off the debt. As of the posting of this article the US Government is $16.4 trillion in debt. With credit card debt and student loan debt, we owe more like $58 trillion.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

We are throwing millions of dollars to illegal immigrants. Between 2009 and 2011 we spent around $91 million on health care for illegal immigrants.

Social Security disability is expected to go bankrupt by 2016.

Congress is looking for ways to allow millions of illegal immigrants to become citizens.

Maybe We Need Less Prisons

Maybe we need less prisons and more reform. Instead of putting people in prisons, or putting them on probation where they have to pay a probation fee, maybe we need more trade schools and colleges?

Maybe we should build a school next to every public housing project? When someone enters public housing they are automatically enrolled in the attached school?

For single parents, child care would be provided so the parent can attend school.

What promoted this post? It was an article on Fox News – European courts spare accused pedophile, hacker from American justice

With over 100 million people receiving welfare, and since our prisons are full, maybe its time to reform society?

Maybe something went terribly wrong in the past 100 years? Something that has to be fixed before society breaks?

Why Do Fathers Disappear From Households

Washington Times has an interesting article about the relationships of fathers and their children – Fathers disappear from households across America. Even though the article is well-written, it is full of fluff. Nowhere did I see the author addressing the root causes of the problem.

Lets narrow the topic down to two points – personal responsibility and criminalization of non-custodial parents.

Personal Responsibility

As an example I am going to use a friend of the family who got knocked up by a guy who already had 4 kids by 4 different women. Lets place the blame where it belongs, on the mothers and the father.

With so many birth control options on the market, why aren’t women protecting themselves from getting knocked up?

Why isn’t the father being more responsible with his seed?

Who is to blame? Both the mother and the father.

Society does not want to point the finger at the mother and ask “why didn’t you protect yourself?” If the mother willingly spread her legs, or bent over, then she must share part of the blame.

Criminalization Of Non-Custodial Parents

I get so sick and tired of having to prove that I have the same rights as my ex-wife. Take my kids to enroll them on school, I have to bring a copy of the divorce decree. I wonder if women have to do the same thing? If a woman enrolls a child in school, do they have to prove they have a legal right to enroll the child?

The USA Is Doomed

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The United States of America is being bled to death. It will not be long before the bleeding takes its toll, as to which society will have some serious issues to face. Do we stop the bleeding, or do we allow the Federal Reserve to print more money out of thin air?

In the following article I will provide three examples of how the United States is being bled to death from within. All of these examples are based off actual people, and actual events. The names are not being disclosed to protect their privacy.

Example 1

This family has been on some kind of welfare for at least 20 years, and for 2 generations.

The grandmother was on welfare for the birth of all of her children.

The children were raised with medicaid providing health insurance, and food stamps providing nutrition assistance.

When one of the children reached 18 years of age, the grandmother applied for, and received social security disability for the child. So now, the grown child will never have to work, and will receive health care for the rest of its life, and without ever having to work a single day in her life.

How Can People Justify Wasting Food

Walking through walmart today, saw a pack of ground meat and steak sitting on a shelf. The shelf was in the canned goods section, and not the cold foods section.

I picked up the meat, checked to see if it was still cold, then took the two packs to the freezer section.

Is this what humanity has come to, that we can waste enough meat that would feed a family for a day, maybe 2 days, or even 3 days?

The person that left the packs of meat on the shelf, have they gone hungry a single day in their lives?

The person that left the meat on the shelf, were they on food stamps or welfare?

Did the person give a single thought to the animal that had to die to put the meat on the shelf?

What about the cost of raising the animal? The cost of butchering, packing and shipping the meat, did the person give a single thought to all of that?

I Wants Me Some Welfare

I am sick and tired of supporting people who are too lazy, or too stupid to get a job. Why should I work a 40 hour a week job, pay child support, pay for health care, barely scrap by,,, when people on welfare get all kinds of free stuff.

I want me some free food.

I want me some free housing.

I want someone to help me pay my electric bill.

I want the state to pay for my kids health care.

Right now I pay close a little over $600 a month for health care and temporary disability insurance.

I have been working since 1984, and what do I have to show for it? Not too much. I may not make a lot of money, but shouldn’t I be able to keep a good percentage of what I earn?

Health insurance alone takes a HUGE bite out of my pay check. Instead of helping the working class out, taxes and health care cost continue to skyrocket.

You want to know what the problem is? I was raised with this little thing called a work ethic. A work ethic is this concept that I believe I should support myself and my family.

Up until around the 1990s there was a stigma that went along with being on welfare.

Today, it seems that people are proud to be on welfare. I gots me some welfare and food stamps,,,, and people see no issue with that.

Welfare is a form of stealing. The government takes from those that do, and gives to those that do not. Too lazy to work? No problem, here is your housing voucher, cell phone, and food stamps.

Lazy moms cost the economy 100 billion dollars

You want to know what is really nice about our society? We get to demonize certain groups, and then victimize other groups. An example of this is an article posted on CNN – unpaid child support cost tax payers $53 billion.

The article talks about how when the dead beat dad does not pay child support, and the child has to go on public assistance, this cost the tax payers billions of dollars every year.

To be fair to both sides of the issue, lets spin that article around. The article states “41% of households headed by single women are below the poverty level.”

In other words, 41% of households where the woman is too lazy to go to college or learn a trade or sill, those families are below the poverty level.

Instead of saying its the dead beat dads fault that the mom and children are living in poverty, lets lay the blame where it belongs, on the mom. How many of those moms living in poverty have anything besides a high school diploma? How many have a science degree such as engineering or computer sciences? How many of them sit on their butt and expect other people to provide for them?

If the dead beat dad is expected to have a job and support his children, then the dead beat mom should also be expected to have a job. Need more money to take care of your children? Get your ass up, get an education or job skills and get a job.

Do not stand there and complain that they dead beat dad is not providing for the child.
