And, Not To Be Out-Moonbatted...

I couldn't take a poke at CA stupidity without hitting my own state, could I? Get a load of this:

Putting a ‘fat finger’ on welfare’s woes
As Gov. Deval Patrick’s welfare “leakage” continues draining billions from the state budget, the Democrats find themselves reduced to ever more farfetched reasons for not coming to the aid of U.S. citizens who actually, you’ll pardon the expression, work.
As always, the liberals say it’s about “refugees,” not illegals. And there’s some court decision from 1977 — about 20 million illegal aliens ago. But the illegal-alien apologists always need new excuses, and this week’s welfare Alibi Ike is Rep. Tom Conroy (D-Wayland).
What, praytell, does Rep. Conroy blame MA welfare fraud on?
“You need to scrub the data and find out if it was fat fingers yielding bad data.”

Yes. That's exactly it. Millions of tax dollars are being wasted, thousands of dead people are getting EBT benefits, and thousands more are actively defrauding the system because the analysts were accidentally keying the wrong information.

Representative Conroy, that's BARELY a step above "the dog ate my constituent" here.

What's even more laughable is Cadillac Deval's assertion that the system is "99% percent accurate". We know of several thousand EBT cards that went to either dead recipients or fradulent ones. These are the ones that have been discovered. Does Governor Deval think that these are the only mistaken or fradulent benefits out there? Really? This man's not fit to run a lemonade stand, let alone a state.

So, there you have it - Massachusetts, proudly making California look rational...

That is all.

How many of them are making the round about trip right into HIS back pocket (after being suitably converted)??? Like those "phantom" cops down in NOLA that were being used to pad the Chief's pockets...

The 99% comment is so stupid it's not funny.

Unlike Da Guv, I spent years on the streets dealing with this sort of thing.

People on welfare who had cell phones, leased cars, huge flat screen TVs, and other stuff that I couldn't afford. Who openly laughed about cheating the system and the suckers who worked.

Unlike Jesse Jackson, who benefits endlessly from this fraud, I don't want to mend it, I want to end it.

And deport the people who come here specifically to steal from us.

That's my idea of immigration reform. Like Mexico, if you don't have a job, you can't come here to live.

Not posible to make the PDRK appear rational. Moonbeam and his moonbats are in charge.
