These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed! Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.  
What's the problem with that much support?  
Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000,which averages out to $137.13 a day.  
To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.  
Furthermore: There are actually two messages here. The first is very interesting, but the second is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot. A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Check the last set of statistics!!  
The percentage of each past president's cabinet... Who had worked in the private business sector...prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is; a real-life business...not a government job.  
Here are the percentages.  
T. Roosevelt.......... .... 38% 
Taft.......................... 40% 
Wilson ...................... 52% 
Harding..................... 49% 
Coolidge.................... 48% 
Hoover....................... 42%F. 
Roosevelt............... 50% 
Truman..................... 50% 
Eisenhower............... 57% 
Kennedy.................... 30% 
Johnson..................... 47% 
Nixon......................... 53% 
Ford........................... 42% 
Carter........................ 32% 
Reagan...................... 56% 
GH Bush.................... 51% 
Clinton ..................... 39% 
GW Bush................... 55%  
Obama.................... 8%  
This helps explain the incompetence of this administration: "Only" 8% of them ... have ever worked in private business! That's right! Only eight percent, the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business? How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And, when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?  
They've spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs. Or, as "community organizers."  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
(That is what our President was.........a "community organizer". He knows nothing about anything in the business or political world. As far as dealing with foreign countries, he is as stupid as stupid gets!  
He really doesn't know excrement from shoe polish.)
 
"Three Ladies In The Park" 
 
Three little old ladies, Gertrude, Maude, and Tilly, were sitting on a park bench having a quiet conversation.  
Suddenly, a handsome young man dressed only in a trench coat approached them from across the park. He was holding his coat together with his hands and didn't seem to be wearing anything underneath it.  
The young man came up to the ladies, stood right in front of them and opened his trench coat in one felled swoop. Gertrude immediately had a stroke.  
Seeing her friend's reaction, Maude also had a stroke.  
But Tilly, bless her heart, being older and more feeble then her friends, couldn't quite reach that far......Alas and Alack!
