Judge Judy dares to tell it like it is. We can always count on her to have the hard conversation. The problem is that we have $60 billion of fraud and abuse in our social programs. We have documented "disabled" Americans who collect taxpayer funded disability checks while working a full-time job.

At the beginning of every day and at the end of every day, we are judged by the personal choices we make for ourselves. Long gone are the days where any of us can blame others for our personal failures.

...and yes we do need to crack down on those who comit fraud...and the south would be a great place to start doing so. Once the anti-American Movement in those same red state ,along with their supporters secede ,they're going to need those bucks to build fortresses in hopes of surviving as the Mexican Drug Cartels take them all over..due to no Fed military help or dollars, soon afterward.

Jae, the $60 billion a year is all over our country.....California (huge)....New York (huge)...Chicago...huge pockets of fraud and abuse...all run by democratic governors.

You should put your race card back in your wallet or put your beer can down, Jae. It doesn't matter what color this guy is what he stated that is at issue. If white people are now in the minority it'll be difficult from here on out not to put up an example of a black or hispanic person.

To make two things clear...#1. I don't like the title of the thread and it's rightwing extremist tabloid hype type over kill use of the word "Entitlement'' ,that is way worn out already by the rightwing extremist/tabagger klan etc.It hasn't worked the past four years as the Presidental election results clear show. #2 ..I will continue to post of threads where lies/misinformation or just what I see as rightwingnut extremist/teabagger klan insaniTea, instead of ignoring them,

You are voicing your personal opinion, Jae. That's all. By the way, "entitlements" is the right word....or would you rather we start using the word "stuff?" The liberal Americans believe they are entitled to "more stuff." That's why they voted for Obama. Read the news today, Jae? Companies are giving the axe to employees because of Obama's "tax" and raising taxes on the rich who provide the jobs. This is what happens....and the doo doo is just starting to hit the fan.

This is great, isn't it? Obama can't create jobs. And now company's are letting people go. Wonder how high the unemployment rate can climb over the next four years? We should start taking bets on it.

Who cares what some TV pretend Judge has to say? I sure don't. It's not your America anymore. It belongs to all the people - gay, straight, black, Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, white, etc.,

We took the country back and the republicans, who seek only to diminish us, lost. So, who cares about the one percenter, Judge Judy? Not me.

Entitlements are corporate welfare for large, multi-national outsourcers, and tax breaks for the one percent, which amount to a loss of $71 billion per year for this country. If you weight the loss in just tax breaks alone over the last 10 years, the number is $710 billion - a nice chunk of change that could do a lot to fund public education, Obamacare (which is already saving lives), the improvements to medicare, or medicaid.

There are either a couple of one percenters in this thread, or there are uninformed people working against their own best interests, which is really sad.

I want to know why it is perfectly fine for working Americans to work from January through April for free, because the government gets that money, and then to expect to get nothing back for it in return? How is that even capitalism? Should we just cut out the middlemen and simply hand our tax dollars over to the one percent while members of our family suffer (the elderly, the infirm)? Would you all like that better?

You probably would pick the latter.

They don't think, Angelica. Fox does that for them. They are the epitome of mentally lazy.

You are too right Diane. The level of actual propaganda in the America media today is frightening. What is even more frightening is that half the people in America that vote - beleive MSNBC and the likes.

All they can spew are comments about Fox News. That's only one media outlet.

Who wants to take their first lesson in government?

Recent Senate Votes
Cybersecurity – Cloture - Vote Rejected (51-47, 2 Not Voting)

In contrast to the brisk movement toward passage of the Sportsmen's Act, cybersecurity legislation once again ran aground in the Senate after a failure to invoke cloture. Despite the entreaties of the bill's sponsors, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs chairman Joseph I. Lieberman, I-Ct. and ranking member Susan Collins, R-Me., Republicans (as well as five Democrats) refused to end debate on the bill. Concerns in the business community remain a major stumbling block. The Chamber of Commerce and its congressional allies are wary that security standards established by the bill could morph from voluntary to mandatory once they become law. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. declared that "cybersecurity is dead for this Congress." The House passed a much less ambitious bill earlier this year that focused on information sharing between the government and private sector entities. President Obama threatened to veto that measure, citing privacy concerns, while endorsing the Senate bill. With the Senate deadlocked, any action in the remainder of the year is likely to come from the White House, which has reportedly drafted an executive order to protect vital computer networks from attack.

How is this not the republican/fascist/far right party. The ones in power in the house?

fascism 730 up, 97 down

The only official definition of Fascism comes from Benito Mussolini, the founder of fascism, in which he outlines three principles of a fascist philosophy.
1."Everything in the state". The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompasing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.
2."Nothing outside the state". The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.
3."Nothing against the state". Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.
The use of militarism was implied only as a means to accomplish one of the three above principles, mainly to keep the people and rest of the world in line. Fascist countries are known for their harmony and lack of internal strife. There are no conflicting parties or elections in fascist countries.
Nazi Germany was extreme Fascism, better examples of fascist countries were Mussolini's Italy, Iraq, Iran, and many middle eastern countries.

fascism (ˈfæʃɪzəm Pronunciation for fascism )

1. any ideology or movement inspired by Italian Fascism, such as German National Socialism; any right-wing nationalist ideology or movement with an authoritarian and hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and liberalism
2. any ideology, movement, programme, tendency, etc, that may be characterized as right-wing, chauvinist, authoritarian, etc
3. prejudice in relation to the subject specified ⇒ "body fascism"

And the most obvious!
Fascism noun
a political system based on a very powerful leader, state control and being extremely proud of country and race, and in which political opposition is not allowed.

How can any one say it is wrong to want to take away the voice of fascism?

You know what makes me laugh Diane? The left thinks that by attacking us they make their argument. When in fact they make the argument for us instead.

Are you still trying to make up an argument or is it that you really just can't? Thought so.
