Waiting on line for handouts

Government housing line stretches for blocks in Hoboken, NJ

Today – hundreds of people lined up for a government housing “lottery.” That line was many city blocks long.

Isn’t it interesting when something that is given out for absolutely zero contribution, that people flock – even in the rain?

But when you’re offering an opportunity (like a JOB), there are NEVER such lines? I see many “help wanted” signs around town…

Tax something and you’ll get less of it. Subsidize something and you’ll get more of it. This country’s dysgenic social policies in general help ensure that the unproductive not only survive but flourish; somehow the freight is getting paid so planning and life management are no longer considerations.

Other governmental polices “help” too. Our lawmakers are getting their pockets stuffed with cash from business leaders and ethnic lobbies who want them to do all they can to flood the labor markets with low wage diversity (ranging from Central American stoop labor to H-1b mediacrities) in order to create Low Wage America. Imported poverty also delights the Welfare-Industrial Complex.

Expect even longer lines and more scrambling for gimmiedats in the years to come. If you want to see the future imagine Brazil on a high carb diet.

What gets me even more is that once they get their subsidized housing, the number of people who just sit around on the stoop at at lot of these Applied Buildings.

People were lined up when I drove by at 5AM on my way to work….yeah that’s right work so I can pay for the roof over my head, clothes on my back and food on my table.
I had no idea why people were lined up outside, but I will say this, if I owned/lived in that area were everyone lined up, I would have been pissed as you could hear those people and no doubt did the people who live and pay to live in those buildings.

This entitlement lifestyle just pisses me off.

Are these apartments set aside from NEW inventory?
How many friends of city hall ended up at the front of the line to get their rent controlled/subsidized housing?

The apartments are in the Applied Buildings. One of the few developments that keep diversity alive in this city. I’m glad, even if it were only to piss off prissy prima donna assholes like sunnybrook. And I sincerely hope the majority of available apartments are in her part of town. So either blend in or move—no loss.[quote comment=”223970″]WHERE are the vacant apartments????????????? Are these apartments set aside from NEW inventory?

The people are on the tit of government and it is disgusting. There is no right to live anywhere, you live where you can afford. The liberal creation that there must be forced diversity is nonsense and contrary to the free market system.

The racist card has to be taken out of the deck! We have a black president or African if you believe that he was not born here. Imagine if these people moved to more affordable areas, they would have more disposable income.

This is disgusting!
