Now we are approaching the end of the still unbelievable government-sponsered 99 weeks of unemployment “insurance”.   Find out that somewhere between a quarter and a third of the folks that have been on this program are now in the process of seeking disability for various and sundry mental illnesses.  And of course this will mean that they do not go back on the list of the unemployed and count against the unemployment statistics that would make this government look bad right before an election.

apparently being on the government payroll makes a significant number of people  permanently sick.  I knew it worked that way for government “workers”.  Guess I shouldn’t be surprised that it apparently works that way for government non-workers too.

Probably being justified as ok to do since it wasn’t specifically prohibited by the Constitution.   The enumerated power “provide for the general welfare” means “put everyone on welfare”, doesn’t it?
