    Hardly mainstream but still with a substantial readership:

    I haven't gotten past the beginning yet, but said beginning is ridiculous. The occupiers/protesters detest this administration.

    You might be trying too hard. There are only two or three sentences in that article that make sense.

    Regardless of the quality of the referenced article I think it is safe to say that the US is well on its way to a full blown police state. Some people think it is governments responsibility to provide for their welfare. Government seems to have no issue with increasingly aggressive forms of surveillance.

    The only way out, and it may be to late, is for people to rely on themselves. Being on the public dole long term is the worst thing that a person can do. Take the governments money and become answerable to that government. I recognize that good jobs are scarce. But I have also talked to people who are unwilling to take an entry level job because they feel it is beneath them. Or the fast money is made dealing in drugs or such.

    For people openly accepting increasing government invasion in their personal lives is unacceptable. Cameras on corners, email monitoring, TSA, and all the rest is a sign of a failed society.

    I am in the last part of my life and I don't see anything I can do to reverse the course the country has taken. I will try but it sure seems to be an uphill battle.

    Boggie - its sad that its so true. If i could leave the country and go expat I would, but cant for more then a few reasons. Theres so much wrong for in this country its not funny, its sad when a CHL is not a optional item but necessary.

    Many of us are forced to stay here for all kinds of good reasons. CHL holders are for the most part law abiding citizens, it's the ones who carry illegally that help destroy our way of life. It saddens me to see a whole generation who think they don't have to produce and be self reliant. A lot of that attitude comes directly from government at all levels.

    I favor making people work for federal benefits. Look at all of the many things that could be accomplished with such a large workforce. Not willing to work then no money. Almost everyone is able to do something and only the severely disabled should be exempted.

    Define "severely disabled." One of the best programmers I ever worked with was a quadriplegic who used a sip-and-puff stick to control his wheelchair and his "keyboard."

    Very true one of our best dispatchers and EMD (the person that answers when you call 911) only has one arm and can type 100+ WPM error free, answer the phone, listen to traffic and dispatch all at the same time, even with dealing with the pain of a torn rotator cuff.

    there should be some exceptions but there shouldnt be so many foot notes, exemptions (like TSAs BS "rules") that its worthless.

    Disabled and working and not looking for a handout. Those people are good in my eyes. Is Stephen Hawking looking for a monthly check because of his handicap?

    I think we can all agree that some people are just not capable of doing useful work and it is no fault of their own in most cases. These people need help from their fellow man and I have no issue with that. I do have an issue with people who are capable and able but don't work. In such cases government should demand something in return. There are plenty of things that need to be done. If needed train these people so they have a skill for later.

    One of my former employers used to have their retail packaging done by Goodwill Industries.

    I'm not certain I can come up with a case for someone not in a coma being incapable of doing "useful work."

    (Unless they're currently "employed" by the TSA...)

    See, you just identified 60,000 some odd people who cannot do useful work.

    I'm sure that some percentage of the current TSA employees would be capable of useful work after rehab to overcome their predilections for theft and groping.

    The rest? They might make good organ donors. Might.
