Increasing sedentarism and obesity in Western nations threaten to collapse welfare states

3/23/2016 - Seems a strange way to approach the topic of obesity. But this is based on an article by the UK online newspaper The Telegraph, and there is more of a welfare state concern there than here in the USA. The welfare system carries the load of medical costs for everyone in England. Each country within...

Children of welfare recipients more likely to become dependent on government handouts

1/10/2016 - One timeless question that social researchers have often asked regarding welfare assistance is whether such assistance is generational.

7/13/2014 - Five years after the "official end" of the Great Recession of 2008-09, there are a number of signs that the U.S. economy has yet to fully recover. Quarterly GDP -- gross domestic product -- growth has been abysmal, often below 2 percent (which is not enough to sustain the expansion of government programs),...

Shocking interview: Welfare recipient admits sitting at home, smoking weed, waiting for govt. money

12/6/2013 - Most Americans realize there is waste, fraud and abuse in virtually all government programs. That includes the government's various and sundry welfare programs.

U.S. spending on welfare fast approaching $1 trillion per year

11/4/2013 - As I've written before, the sum of U.S. government "entitlement" programs are not simply expensive, they are unsustainable.

U.S. welfare food shipped offshore in huge barrels to be sold on black market in developing nations

7/31/2013 - Waste, fraud, and abuse are the three things taxpayers hate more than the taxes themselves, because they stand for a blatant misuse of resources provided by coercion: Pay your taxes or else go to jail.

Immigration amnesty bill would instantly put millions on welfare

5/10/2013 - At a time when the U.S. government is spending a trillion dollars more a year than it takes in, it makes no sense at all for our elected leaders to be considering any legislation that adds to the federal deficit, which is already more than 100 percent of our entire gross domestic product.

11/2/2012 - When people say that America "is the land of the free," they aren't kidding.
