Do you have any dependents? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Someone recently sent me this in an e-mail. It's funny, but utterly true at the same time, so it's not really all that funny after all. The problem is that most of them manage to vote, and guess who they vote for? Yep, the politicians that keep promising to take from you and me and give it to them. It goes by many names, amongst them are Social Justice, Getevenwiththemism, Class Warfare, Socialism, and Marxism.

In response to the question on the Census form, "Do you have any dependents?," I answered the following:

"12 million illegal immigrants, 10 million crack heads, 20 million unemployed worthless bastards too lazy to work, 40 million recipients of food stamps, 3/4 of a million inmates, most of the states of New York and California, all of the state of Michigan, especially the city of Detroit, half of Mexico, the Island of Haiti, the United Nations, employees of PBS radio and TV stations, and AMTRACK. There's plenty more, but these alone should reduce my tax liability to zero."

……………… Apparently this wasn’t an acceptable answer.

My neighbor is a "99er." He got laid off about a year ago. He has a couple small apartment complexes for income, his wife works fulltime, and he claims everything for his own house and yard as a tax deduction. He proudly talks about getting his check and has no plans to look for a job until the 99 weeks of unemployment run out. I hear people in the lines at the grocery store and Walmart talking about the same sort of thing. Democrats love it because those are their voting base.
