# If Washington’s tone has changed, this is why

Here’s what President Obama’s job-approval numbers look like, from Sept. 1 to today, as compiled from major polls by RealClearPolitics:

—————————–

It’s also interesting to look at the polls individually. Here’s a list of every major survey conducted in the month of January on the question of job approval. As you’ll notice, one of the numbers is not like the others:

Every poll but one reports an eight-to-12-point differential between job approval and disapproval. I won’t mention the identity of the outlier.

And finally, we have this, which helps to explain why, despite passionate promises to the contrary, the Republicans will not be pushing the government into default or shutting down the government anytime soon:

Heck, let me line up for those foodstamps! The average foodstamp recipient receives \$1,600 a year!

For the math challenged, that’s about \$133 a month (or \$30.76 a week). You can really live high on the hog with that. Especially with a family of four!

Allotments for households in the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia.

The amount of benefits the household gets is called an allotment. The net monthly income of the household is multiplied by .3, and the result is subtracted from the maximum allotment for the household size to find the household’s allotment. This is because SNAP households are expected to spend about 30 percent of their resources on food.

(October 2012 through September 2013)
People in Household Maximum Monthly Allotment
1 \$ 200
2 \$ 367
3 \$ 526
4 \$ 668
5 \$ 793
6 \$ 952
7 \$ 1,052
8 \$ 1,202

In reality, Whites cost more money to taxpayers in reference to welfare than Blacks, which is my point. My point is dead right, and I think YOU know that.”

Well, I didn’t read his rant – only the part you quoted. I agree that more welfare money is spent on whites, so if you interpreted him correctly then your post is a good correction. I just didn’t read all of that into what you quoted. In any case, both of our points are factually correct.

“In reality, Whites cost more money to taxpayers in reference to welfare than Blacks, which is my point.”

That’s true. But whites also pay substantially more into the system. And as far as the welfare rolls go the number I use to see was that whites constituted 38% of welfare recipients, blacks 37%, Hispanics 20%, and the rest was others. So as a % of their respective populations there are significantly more blacks and Hispanics on welfare than whites.

Kayaker’s perception seems to be that for the most part then that white America is paying out much more money as a whole to minorities in the form of transfer payments. And judging from the numbers it looks like he’s right. Its just an uncomfortable truth that people don’t like. Another uncomfortable truth would probably be that gays, Asians, Jews, and probably some other minorities pay disproportionately much more into the system to subsidize lazy white people.

Prove that Whites pay more into the system.

Michelle Malkin I think was ranting about how in our culture and especially in television commercials that its always the white guy in a commercial that gets made to look like a dope, an idiot, or a fool when the commercial has mixed company. She said it was especially so in beer commercials. So I started watching and noticed that damn if that woman wasn’t right.

Almost any commercial that you see where there is a white and a black guy or several guys of mixed company and someone is made to look like an idiot it will always be the white guy if its just one black guy and one white guy or it will always be one of the white guys that is made to look like a dolt if its a group of guys.

So when you watch all the Superbowl commercials this Sunday and you see a multicultural group in a beer or other commercial and someone gets made to look like a dolt you can damn well bet it will be the white guy.

“The whole notion of Whites paying more appears to be an assumption based on population numbers.”

Brocephus,

You’re a math guy and this isn’t even math. Its just basic common sense. If whites comprise roughly 73% of the overall population but about 37% of the welfare population than they are paying significantly more into the system to benefit other groups. Conversely if blacks for example are 13% of the population but comprise 37% of the welfare population then its just common sense that as a group they are collectively getting much more out of the system than what they are paying into it.

The reasons why these numbers are what they are is a whole other debate.

And to be sure with the recent economic downturn starting in 07 I would venture to guess that of all the new entrants into welfare that many more whites now make up the welfare rolls than in years past relative to their % of the population. The numbers I cited are old. I wouldn’t be surprised if whites now accounted for 45% or more of welfare recipients and blacks now constituted a lower number like 25 or 30%. Haven’t checked in awhile.

Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team.

“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”

If you had 3 or 4 guys in a beer commercial and the one black guy is the one made to look like a fool then the automatic assumption is that the company or the commercial is racist.

“The charter school movement associated with Turkish Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen is under federal investigation ………… Fethullah Gulen is a Turkish Islamic cleric who fled his native country in 1998, after being charged with seeking to overthrow the secular Turkish government. He currently lives in exile at a 28-acre mountain complex in the Pocono Mountains, with more than \$25 billion of
assets at his command. The 135 charter schools associated with the Gulen Movement (GM) enroll more than 45,000 students and comprise the largest charter school network in the United States — all of which are fully funded by American taxpayers.

None of that backed up your assertion. Yes as always you can assert and imply as well as cry, but no proof in your pudding.

But keep swinging.

Do you know ANYBODY anywhere that thinks that abortion is an ideal solution to a problem pregnancy? I’ve never met any woman who was trying to get pregnant so she could have an abortion. Nobody is advocating abortion.

Nice try, ace. But you probably should go back to school. I said TESTABLE proof – not some bozo’s speculation as to what may have happened. Trust me, you are NOT going to find it.

I kinda wondered about that father in the VW commercial. I didn’t see anything racial about it just because the father was white. What I couldn’t understand is how they could put a guy in a commercial that could possibly throw the ball so poorly. Saying that he threw that baseball “like a girl” is an insult to little girls everywhere. I would venture to say my 7 year old niece could throw that ball better than that sorry goofball. Still can’t figure out how the guy could throw a ball so crappy like.

Not personally. But I have read arguments to that effect and here is a recent video along those lines:

I saw the commercial as making fun of liberal white geeks.

Exactly. And why do that to sell a car in the first place? They want to interject humor perhaps, but I didn’t find it funny at all (because it was so unrealistic as you point out). Conclusion: the “joke” is the white guy.

I was with you for a bit on the commercials but then it dawned on me that just about all groups in commercials are portrayed as idiots! It ain’t called the boob tube for nothing.
I’m another white guy who does not feel aggrieved… I just do what I do –
Hard work never fails…winners make it happen; losers let it happen…there will be poor always, the takers that the right is head exploding about is a small percentage. The truth of the matter? Corporate welfare and rich tax cheats cost this country more revenue than all of welfare combined.
Life is good, life is what you make it, everything else is noise…

“Those commercials are SO unfair!”

Life is unfair. We get that and the comments on the commercials are just an observation- not something we’re going to whine and cry about to beer brewers. Would be nice if everyone else would get it that life is unfair and deal with it.

Yet it’s the easy way out of responsibility for those who’re irresponsible and that appears to be the majority. What are you advocating?

There are nefarious people of every religion, race, creed and economic status in the US. Who doesn’t know that?

You made a claim. As I thought earlier, you can’t back it up,

But of course you did say Reagan Carter……. guess you read that in the blaze or in wnd.

He was inspired by the lib ilk god of manliness, the one we’ve been waiting for, our hope…

If he heal the planet as he claimed, he can certainly throw a baseball like a man!

Mick,

Trust me. It aint nothing to get worked up about. Its just an interesting observation that I never realized until Malkin fumed about it and then I started paying attention to it.

Now when you have groups that are all alike as in 5 black guys of course someone is going to get made to look like a dolt. I’m just talking about in mixed company it will always be the white guy that gets made to look like a dolt.

Now when I think of black men being made to look like a dolt I think of those Cedric the entertainer commercials from a few years ago. Hell I’m laughing right now thinking of the one where he is dancing while his gf is in the port o pottie. He butt bumps the port o pottie and the chick goes doing somersaults down a hill inside of a port o pottie. Damn that was funny.

You take a funny character in a harmless 30-second commercial and extrapolate it into some major attack upon your own ethnic group?
