red = Romney
blue = Obadma
(a lot of fish must have voted).
There's been some serious statistics on the news and in the paper. One, in particular, caught my ire. It seems that there's something like 95% of the black vote, and 87% of the hispanic votes that were for Obama.
Only fifty-six percent of the white folks voted Romney.
Now, I don't know HOW they know if a vote is made by a black, a hispanic, or a white. I didn't have to write down that I'm a caucasian when I voted.
But IF these statistics are correct, that means that 46% of caucasians either stayed home, voted for Rosanne Barr, or helped put Obama back in office.
Given the statistics (I hate statistics. I don't trust them 78% of the time.) MOST of those votes were by non-working, able-bodied, welfare recipients.
Welfare was created for the disabled, the truly needy, those who would rather NOT be in the situation they find themselves in. God help 'em and I hope the country can continue helping them.
But there's something wrong in the welfare system. It is being given to those who feel it is their right to be taken care of BECAUSE of their race.
I have a sister who is 76, disabled, and is on welfare and food stamps. SOME people NEED it.
It's the able-bodied adults, who don't WANT to work: never have, ain't gonna start now - who are going to drain the money necessary for true assistance.
My sister's food stamps amount to $66 a month. When she told me that, I nearly lost it. Her housing isn't paid for, nor subsidized. Her check is paltry. Her medical bills are adding up. Yet there are healthy, never-worked-a-day-in-their-lives, people on welfare who have subsidized housing, more money than they deserve and free medical care.
I don't understand the discrepancy.
If anyone does, would you please give me a clue? This is bugging me.
Therefore, I cleaned the house, made stew, baked a pecan pie, started another quilt, and made a card.
