    This cartoon would be funny if it actually had any basis in FACT! If anyone believes that Obama is offering free health care, clothing, etc.. they surely have no idea of what the man is really about. Truly socialists societies laugh at our ignorant labelling of Obama as a “socialist”!

    This cartoon could actually be more FACT than FICTION! There is an organization that has a plan to provide free food, housing and health care to ALL.

    And the answer to the little blurb “…then what do we need jobs for”.

    People will still need money to buy cars, TV’s, vacations, etc. Greed and capitalism will still flourish (that’s human nature)! :-)

    But just imagine….what if your housing was paid for…your food was paid for (just healthy food, if you want M&M’s you’ll have to buy them yourself), what if your health care was totally paid for?

    Can you just imagine the stress relief? Can you imagine how much more money would be available from each of your pay checks to BUY STUFF (ie stimulate the economy)

    The plan WILL WORK! And if enough people can just unite together and get this plan in front of our New President Elect…then just maybe we can have a chance for peace and equality in this world.

    Relieve the stress of survival…and people will find HAPPINESS!

    Check out the PLAN at http://wwunited.org

    May there ONE DAY truly be: NO POOR AMONG US!

      What planet are you from?
      Look, here on earth, you cannot base an economic philosophy on stealing from savings accounts of those who are frugal and hardworking to give to those who don’t like school or “working for the man”. Eventually, there will be no more savings or savers left to steal from.
      The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.
      Like being on a small island with 100 people — the amount of food and housing and saving is directly attributable to the amount of hours and productivity that the total population invests. If 1 or 2 people sit on thier asses all day, the other 98 will probably notice but keep working. But, when the number of asses being sat on (i.e. people with very much stress relief) gets to 30, then 50, the workers slow to a crawl and start insisting that those who do not produce get less or nothing.
      But, then the ass sitters ask, “Why does he get to live in that really cool shack while I’m out here on the beach in the cold rain?” If the calls for “benefits” get too loud, then the producers start looking for ways to get off the island….and they start pulling back on their “common efforts” due to the uncommon effort being put forth by all the receivers of the fruits of that effort.

    Sounds great. I have not yet looked at the website but I will soon. In the meantime, I wanted to mention that there is just one small problem with this scenario. Someone has to provide the housing, someone has to produce the food, someone has to provide the healthcare and those people are going to want to be paid for their efforts. Where does that money come from? Your probably would say that the people could pay higher taxes since they are not spending the money for these things. If that is your answer, then people are actually paying for these things…just not directly.

    The other obvious problem is that the people will no longer be willing to work more than what is needed to provide for their wants…since their needs are all covered. This will destroy productivity and the initiative that Americans are known for. We can’t let that happen.

    I am sure that once I look at the website I will find many other areas that are a problem and if I have time I will comment on them as well.

    I have to agree with Sue.

    I read the plan at wwunited.org and believe it could work. If everyone’s needs were met, people would be able to do “other things,” like go on vacation, buy a big screen TV, or a new car. Some may not want to have a job at first, but once their expendable cash ran out, they would be WANTING to work so they could get more money to buy the things they want.

    The economy would flourish!! And employers would treat their employees better because they would know that the people would not HAVE to work, but are there by choice. PLUS, employees would be better workers, because they could choose the job they WANT.

    As a result of “hope” (and actual capital and ACTION to back it–free food and shelter for instance) being injected into society, terrorism would decrease, as would poverty, obesity, hatred, and more.

      In 1620 the Pilgrims also believed that way. Every one of them had to pitch in for everyone’s benefit, if not the offender would be placed in the Pillory

      (For those of you who don’t know what a Pillory is, the definition: A wooden framework on a post, with holes for the head and hands, in which offenders were formerly locked to be exposed to public scorn as punishment.)

      And, it worked. For a short while! But, one of them got tired of working, thought that he was doing more than his fair share! So, he slowed down. Then another, then, one stopped working.
      The result: he was placed in the Pillory. Soon, there weren’t enough Pillories for the offenders.

      The Pilgrims’ plan didn’t work! So, they changed their ways!

      And, it won’t work today!!!

    Tom, your question about money is the first one that always comes up. You’ll find the answer to it on the website. :-)

    Ask yourself…where did/does the US come up with all the money to pay for this war that’s been going on for several years now, and most likely for several more? Have your taxes gone up?

    You stated, “…people will no longer be willing to work more than what is needed to provide for their wants…”

    Peoples “wants” are HUGE! And as they realize the struggle to survive paycheck to paycheck is over…they will be able to dream again…and their “want” list will only increase.

    What if I “want” a luxury vehicle that would cost me $800 a month to lease? Well that’s way less than my rent payment. And if I knew my housing was secure I could now afford it. How cool would it be to make my dream of “wanting” a luxury car a reality? Wouldn’t I want to keep working so that I could fulfill my “dream” ?

    Monica is right…the economy will flourish! The American Dream will keep people motivated.

    No more stress…no more fear…just knowing that no matter what happens, you and your family will always have the necessities of life!

    Visit the website…your questions will be answered.

    You can visit the WUF Yahoo Group to participate in a discussion there as well. I’ve posted a link to the cartoon, and your blog.


    So if you do indeed “find problems” with the plan…that would be the place to discuss it. :-)

    I am afraid that Sue and Monica have ungrounded ideals, and a huge hole in what they perceive is possible. Let’s start with the fundamentals, as Tom alluded to: if all of the basics are provided, someone has to work to provide the basics. So let’s assume that Joe The Plumber is provided with his “free” necessities. Someone DOES have to pay for them, so it’s either going to be the first thing that Joe is taxed on, or it is going to be shouldered by “everyone else”. But Joe is one of the citizens, and thus the template for all is: all of your income is taxed until you pay for your free necessities, then you are taxed until you pay for your share of support of free necessities for all other people who have not made enough money to pay for their own. Then you have some disposable income to buy M&Ms. Oh, but wait — don’t forget to add taxes to pay for the government staff and organizations that are operating this free program. So who wants to sit in the park and wait for their next meal and who wants to work?

    One more comment to Julie and Aaron: what you speak of with credit to Christ was towards those who could not provide for themselves. But don’t forget that He said that the poor will always be with us. And Proverbs says many times in many ways that if a man will not work, he shall not eat.

      People like Sue and Monica are delusional. They truly think that money DOES grow on trees, that it can fall from the sky (or the government) and remove stress. It’s magic money. It needs no source and it needs no hours of work to produce it – to store value into it. It just happens.
      That’s why this country is in the shape it is.
      People like Sue and Monica that voted for a talking head like Obama — a person that has been dipped in socialist “your poverty is the fault of someone who stole your money from you” rhetoric, that truly belives in his soul that capitalism is the cause of all evil, wars, and poverty — not bad people with guns, not sociopaths, and not people who do not know – or will not learn – how to work in as efficient a manner as possible, be it throwing a football better than anyone else or in cooking a steak so well that people will drive 30 miles to get to your restaurant.

This is when they decided each would keep the fruits of their own labor and barter for what they needed. Capitilism was born and works amazingly well, if government would not interfere and use our tax dollars for what they were intended….infrastructure, defense (or war as the protestors say), and other necessities. This is the true story of Thanksgiving….the birth of capitilism.

    Hmmm. The reference to Christ is good, but it’s only being interpreted in part. Yes, we are called to feed the hungry, etc., but it doesn’t say to “take from others to feed the hungry.” Giving to “feed the hungry” should be of each person’s choosing. It was never, in it’s Biblical reference, that the government should decide how we give. The Bible also says that we should each “give according to what is in our hearts, and that if we give, not out of love, it profits noone.” Let us decide for ourselves how we want to give in charitable fashion. I think a lot more people would give a lot more of their own free will if the government would not mandate that we give charity.

Why are these people not providing for themselves and their families? Why are you not upset at them for being lazy?

          As for the Bible, we are taught to take care of those who can’t take care of themselves. We, the families of these people, are taught to do this….it is not the government’s responsibility to do this. Second, for those who refuse to work the Bible has words of wisdom also. It says: “For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.” (2 Thessalonians 3:10 ESV). It is these people that I and many others have problems with……I work hard and barely provide the necessities for my family. What I make should not be forcibly taken from me (via taxes) and given to those who are not willing to also work to provide for their families.

          So, if you are going to assert how Christians should behave then please get it right. Otherwise, you should refrain from such assertions.
