    I used both very frequently. Sad times indeed. LOL

    Your first paragraph is a MASSIVE question that unfortunately will never be answered in this day and age.

    It will never happen because it's far to hard now days to take responsibility for one's own actions. Being a victim and blaming everyone else or "The System" is far easier and requires little to no logical thought process.

    Just for context I am genuinely speaking from the experience of watching my own father blame everyone and everything for his lack of success. He's even gone as far as blaming having to raise me. He completely ignores his past drug use, alcohol addiction and terrible behavior, again not his fault.

    Because of him I actually grew up very poor. So poor I went an entire year with 2 pairs of pants to my name and was gluing my shoes together.

    I realized about 5 years ago I got to where I am in life with a little of what he taught me and a lot of watching what NOT to do and refusing to quit or look for excuses to say I can't do something.

    I myself made some at the time bad decisions early in life that, in an odd way turned out to be for the best. I however never blamed anyone nor said I am "here" because someone or some thing did this to me, I knew I was responsible.

    I allowed my mother to talk me into joining the Army at 19 and while I 100% regret my second enlistment it jump started my life.

    After serving and using my G.I. bill for some specific classes and certificates I now have a family of my own, 6 figure income, retirement, mortgage and nice cars to drive.

    I take great pride in the fact that I can provide for my wife and children and don't live paycheck to paycheck. I literally had a massive smile my face the other night because my oldest learned what a landlord is not because we were being evicted like I did.

    What I am getting at is had I bought into my father's BS I would have went down that exact same road you have described because it's easier and it's what he mostly taught me.

    I am not entirely sure why I didn't listen to him or why I chose a different path though. I am glad it worked out and if I could figure out how to get poor kids that maintain an impoverished mentality to do the same in mass I would.

    This is one of the reasons why BTC is at $56,000 and an ATH of over $60,000. The dollar is getting trashed because of stupid programs as posted by the OP. Get ready for it to go a lot higher as funny money is passed around.

    I’m not understanding why you put “yes” on so many applications if it just perpetuates the problem.

    I do not understand how minority communities accept being told by the Left that they require government intervention.

    Maybe it is like battered woman syndrome. Decades of being told you cannot do it on your own, we need to have special rules for “insert Democrat’s charity case for votes”, you cannot do it without us.

    I just do not get how it is so easy to manipulate a group of people to the point that they vote for the very people that say the demeaning things Dems openly say.

    I hate the things politicians insinuate or say about people like me. I just don’t get how people could continue to vote for the same BS cycle after cycle.


    Joe Biden has sniffed here.

    Not surprised. Even less surprised we heard about it first in CA.
    Well done sir! Well done!

    I identify as a liberal, non-white, displaced, Oakland resident. Give me my money.

    seriously, this is just one more means by which our political masters are attempting to divide us so they can retain power and the American people are too stupid to realize they are being played.

    How long before the receivers of this money start complaining that it isn't enough?

    You just misread it. I automatically said "yes" to the other 10% who actually wrote what they have done to earn it.

    Only when you're winning. Can't be racist if you're losing.

    So here's a question nobody on the Left wants to answer. Where is the incentive to work or better yourself when the government just gives you a "free" monthly guaranteed income handout? I mean "entitlement".

    It's just another entitlement. Link it to "systemic racism" and for sure it becomes an entitlement in the minds of the receivers of the "entitlement". And will the money received really be used to better the lives of the recipients? Not likely. Watch and see. Oh, but the government will take it a step further and provide free housing. In the end, they will own those people and then we're knee deep into socialism.

    JMO.

    I lived in Oakland for 65 years, escaped 5 years ago, it is a beautiful city but the leftists have turned it into a shithole of the highest magnitude.

    You wouldn’t believe it until you see it.

    Trust me.

    Have you seen the Movie District 9?

    There’s an aerial tram and these parasites have huge camps all along but directly underneath the tramway.

    I saw one of those drug documentaries on like the nat geo channel in Oakland and it was pretty eye opening

    I lived near Oakland in Alameda from 1989-1990 and liked it. Appears things there are much different now.

    Funny aside, I have zero issues with the matter in question because it is PRIVATELY funded.

    Even more funny is anyone expecting those people to do anything constructive with the money as I'd expect it to be squandered on crap.

    California's fall is truly shocking. I rented an airbnb in a nice area of L.A. for work. There was human poop all over the sidewalks with furniture, sofas, and mattresses strewn all over sidewalks. It turns out people sleep there at night. Outside of our place was a lazy boy, sofa, mattress, and an end table. The homeless furnished makeshift apartments on the sidewalk. These weren't indigents either, they were normal people that left for work in the morning in a suit and tie.

    In the business districts we were there to work at trash was piled up on the streets, often a few feet high. We had to park two blocks away from our first destination because the trash was piled so high there was nowhere to park in the streets. We had to walk down the middle of the street because the sidewalks were inaccessible because of trash and homeless.

    Tent cities were everywhere too and beat up 40 year old RVs parked everywhere with people living inside.

    California is a disaster. Californians are locusts infecting the region too
