Politicians who talk about the recession and describe it as the worst since the great depression have no idea what they're talking about. I was there during the great depression. Things were bad. Starving people of the '30s did not have cars, smart phones or flat screen TVs. They didn't even have a radio or telephone. They didn't get 99 weeks of pay if they were out of a job and instead of stamps to buy groceries they stood in soup and bread lines.
Now the government has come up with a new way to pick the pockets of the few who pay taxes. SafeLink Wireless® gives cell phones and air time to "income eligible" customers. Tax dollars are given to a wireless phone provider (more crony capitalism) for welfare recipients to have free cell phones and free air time.
The old concept of getting ahead through hard work has been replaced with: "Why should I work, when I can get it for free?"
