I want to punish those on welfare? Is that honestly how stereotypical you are? What solution do you have that is economically stable and cuts spending?

Anyways, it would be less than a required 25 hours, and would be used for the unemployed. They will have plenty of time to look for work, and it will discourage those that seek to exploit the welfare system from doing so. Rather than that, it gives better bang for the buck, and gives a valid reason for such welfare programs to even be funded in times of such horrendous debt, and will encourage those people on such benefits to find a real job for employment.

Did you honestly not read what I wrote? Is that how stereotypical YOU are? To just ignore facts?

 It removes people from paid positions because those companies can get free labour. It makes the job market SMALLER and unemployment will rise. It’s happened before.
The welfare system is bull shit and you have to jump through hurdles and hurdles for what ends up being shit all money. That’s an utterly ridiculous scare tactic.
People who receive social welfare are looked at with judgement and feel shame about it, I know this happens in Australia and from all reports the same thing happens in America. It’s a shitty experience and you don’t even end up receiving enough to cover the basic living costs, people don’t want to be on it.

Work for the dole programmes don’t work and you ignored the sources you asked for to push the point, so yes, you do just seem to want to punish those on welfare and are spouting Regan rhetoric. 

Where the hell did I mention companies? Are you putting words in my mouth, is that how desperate you are? I never said it’s primary focus was to give the recipients skills, as your sources seemingly all emphasize, I am saying it is a method to get the most out of taxpayer money, most of which comes from…guess what…within the top 10% of tax payers (68%), and nearly all the rest comes from the top 50% (98%) I’m sorry, but it looks like you are failing with priorities. We need to budget, not add more to the national debt. I’m done here.

Ummmmm….who do you think is giving these people these work for the dole?

You wondered if it helped, I said it doesn’t and it’s been proved in the past. You asked for sources and I provided them and showed how it didn’t increase the likely hood of people to get jobs and it means they stay on welfare payments for longer - something you’re against.

If anything it increases unemployment because the employers take advantage of free labour, and therefore uses more of all that taxpayer money you care about.

It’s mindless busy work that doesn’t help people and doesn’t stimulate the economy.
It’s easy to say you’re done when you’re wrong.

I completely agree. It is mindless busywork, that is worth far more than free money, and can deter those away from the program. I am not looking for welfare to create jobs, that is absolutely ridiculous. You are obviously trying to blot out how I have said that countless times. Rather, it would decrease dependency, based on the many long term welfare recipients that have no desire to even look for a job. Simply put, I am looking at cutting the fat and maximize the spending effects, and you seem to be completely omitting that.

I’m going to say this again since you don’t seem to be able to comprehend logic so i’ll make it nice and simple.
Higher employment means LESS people on welfare which saves that money you love. And besides, the system should work to help people by creating higher employment, the priorities should be the people.

I’ve SHOWN you sources that show that people who participate in the work for the dole programs end up costing more money in the long run because the people don’t get off welfare sooner. It doesn’t even work to your logic and higher overestimation of “welfare cheats”. Again, welfare is a tiny amount that doesn’t create a realistic financial support for a person.

Today I went to the gym, came home and ate a bunch of carbs then napped then just ate an iced bun for dinner since I was still so full from all my delicious carbs. Fun day.

No matter how much I get down on myself, at least I know I’m not in the serial killer/school shooter fandom.

Sometimes I wonder whether I have any real intelligence or if I just have enough random bits of surface knowledge to bullshit my way through most things.

Manuel Valls, France’s primeministersaid: “What happened in Sarcelles is intolerable. An attack on a synagogue and on a kosher shop is simply anti-Semitism. Nothing in France can justify this violence.”

Also from the article —

The government had banned a demonstration planned in Paris for Saturday, but posters were seen around the area which said “Come equipped with hammers, fire extinguishers and batons” and promised a “raid on the Jewish district”.

France has around half a million Jews, the biggest population in Europe, and around five million Muslims.

The Society for the Protection of the Jewish Community’s figures suggest that anti-Jewish violence is seven times higher than in the 1990s, and 40% of racist violence is against Jews, despite them making up just 1% of the population.

In March 2012, a shooting spree by Mohammed Merah in the south of France left three French soldiers, three Jewish schoolchildren and a rabbi dead. The gunman claimed a connection to al Qaeda.

More than a thousand Jews have made aliyah (the term used when Jews immigrate to Israel) in the past 10 days, according to the Israeli government.

"I came because of anti-Semitism,” said teary-eyed Veronique Rivka Buzaglo, one of 430 immigrants who arrived from France the day before.
