Do you have any dependents? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews

Someone recently sent me this in an e-mail. It's funny, but utterly true at the same time, so it's not really all that funny after all. The problem is that most of them manage to vote, and guess who they vote for? Yep, the politicians that keep promising to take from you and me and give it to them. It goes by many names, amongst them are Social Justice, Getevenwiththemism, Class Warfare, Socialism, and Marxism.

In response to the question on the Census form, "Do you have any dependents?," I answered the following:

"12 million illegal immigrants, 10 million crack heads, 20 million unemployed worthless bastards too lazy to work, 40 million recipients of food stamps, 3/4 of a million inmates, most of the states of New York and California, all of the state of Michigan, especially the city of Detroit, half of Mexico, the Island of Haiti, the United Nations, employees of PBS radio and TV stations, and AMTRACK. There's plenty more, but these alone should reduce my tax liability to zero."

……………… Apparently this wasn’t an acceptable answer.

My neighbor is a "99er." He got laid off about a year ago. He has a couple small apartment complexes for income, his wife works fulltime, and he claims everything for his own house and yard as a tax deduction. He proudly talks about getting his check and has no plans to look for a job until the 99 weeks of unemployment run out. I hear people in the lines at the grocery store and Walmart talking about the same sort of thing. Democrats love it because those are their voting base.
