Economics 101 in Kalifornia. What's not to like, dude?
« on: April 12, 2018, 06:16:53 AM »
(Here's one of my more interesting emails I received lately.)

"For a guy and his girlfriend with two kids all you have to do is follow these proven steps:

1. Don't marry her - Don't even think about it !

2. Always use your mom's address to get your mail.
3. The guy buys a house.
4. The guy rents out house to his girlfriend with his 2 kids.
5. Section 8 will pay $900 a month for a 3 bedroom home.
6. Girlfriend signs up for Obamacare so guy doesn't have to pay for family insurance.
7. Girlfriend gets to go to college for free being a single mother.
8. Girlfriend gets $600 a month for food stamps.
9. Girlfriend gets a free Obammy cell phone ... with 250 minutes per month.
10. Girlfriend get free utilities ... sets A/C to 68 degrees and heat to 80 degrees. Leaves water running for hours on end. Kids take 48 minute hot showers and play in a tub FULL of hot water.
11. Guy moves into home, but continues to use mom’s address for his mail.
12. Girlfriend claims one kid and guy claims the other kid on their tax forms. Now both get to claim head of household at $1800 credit.
13. Girlfriend gets $1,800 a month disability for being "crazy" or having a "bad back" and never has to work again.

 
A ‘married’ couple with a stay at home mom yields $0 dollars.
An ‘un’married couple with stay at home mom nets $21,600 disability + $10,800 free housing + $6,000 free obamacare + $6,000 free food + $4,800 free utilities + $6,000 pell grant money to spend + $12,000 a year in college tuition free from pell grant + $8,800 tax benefit for being a single mother = $75,000 a year in benefits!
 
This ‘plan’ is being executed by waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many who live in California and a huuuuuuuuuuge number of them are illegal immigrants AND they are allowed to get a driver’s license! Plus, Gubnor Moonbeam (if it’s Brown, flush it down) sez California is a sanctuary STATE, ergo no law enforcement officials are allowed to cooperate with the feds as regards pursuing and tossing out the illegals.
 
 
Any idea why the country is trillions in debt and half the population is sitting on their butt letting the other half pay their way?"

AS a Native Californian married to a retired theft analyst, not one of these numbers come anywhere near reality.
If someone was willing to do the real math, this would be a killer chain email, but fact is, it's total BS.

I did not post that to rankle anyone's nerves on this fine Adirondack mornin', boss.

Northern CA? Well, aren't you guys supposed to secede and become your own state?

No prob. This forum is a fact based forum, something our readers come back for, they know they can safely repeat what they read here and know they're on solid ground.
So when a chain email pops up, if it has any inaccuracies whatsoever, despite the message ringing true, it winds up in conspiracy Forum.

Couple of things to point out, as to disability, no one gets that much, not even close. SDI is temporary, SSDI averages out and most only get $600.0 a month and $900.00 max.
Then there's the issue of fraud, all of this is based on the idea that it's a permanent situation when in truth, they could both wind up in prison, have the kids tossed into foster care.
Point being, it makes for great theater, even feeds the anger many have and rightly so, but again, to win the battle we have to be able to use solid evidence when making our case.
