It's a cartoon depicting Qaddafi running down the side of a wall with a paint brush and he is heading toward the corner where just out of sight of Qaddafi is a large US sailor in dress whites.

How long do you think is a reasonable time to be on welfare/public aid/unemployment?
Should a person, being of sound mind and body be on welfare for months/ years/ decades?(10 or more years)
Should you be able to collect unemployment for 5 years straight or more?
Should you be able to collect state aid for child and then have another child and collect state aid again and do this constantly?
Should you be able to benefit from these programs having never contributed to paying into these programs or paying taxes via work or income tax?
If you feel an individual is or has become ineligible for benefits what should be the cutoff or more appropriately what should be the motivator to get them back into the workforce ?
That being said I understand children and the disabled can't pay into a system and they are more than entitled to benefits.
But healthy able bodied adults are a different subject.4 AnswersOther - Politics & Government8 years ago
We have donated and contributed million if not billions of dollars over the many years and it appears we are no closer to a cure than we were when we started.
I wonder how much, has a percentage, of the money has gone into the pockets of people who just administer paperwork.
Maybe it's pretty much the same with any cause, if there's money in it.10 AnswersCancer8 years ago
Why are their so many people trying to join the military while still trying get away with taking drugs?
Why do people insist on smoking pot or using other drugs and then trying to pass through MEPS or get to boot camp?
(example) I'm going to boot camp next week but I smoked yesterday and I smoked three times this week so far, do you think it will show?
Folks.......THE US MILITARY HAS A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY!!! Regarding drug use....
That means you don't get a pass, you don't get a waiver, you don't get another try.
YOU GET KICKED OUT!

Years ago my family had a plant they called and "Aunt Suzy" or "Aunt Suzie". I'm not sure if it was an annual or perennial. I know we brought it in in the winter. It had large white flowers that hung down and were about 4 to 6 in long. I may be off about the size of the blooms, it's been 30+ years2 AnswersBotany9 years ago
