Your constant prodding is getting on my nerves, man!!!
The tree industry has it's dangers, but proper procedures keep it safe. The "most dangerous" part of it is out in the woods with monster machines or on steep hillsides. I don't even want to do that! Reasonable danger is acceptable---guaranteed death during the year to someone is another. My climber, who is in the most high-risk part, gets $30-50 an hour. I'll put the spikes on you and give you the same if you got the guts!
When you decide to be civil and discuss the real issue of overblown welfare, I will engage. Until then:

Thanks for some concrete figures to discuss on the concern over continuing wefare over temporary help.
Any time any society is supporting 1/4-2/3 of the populace through welfare, something is badly wrong!
The immediate problem is a busted economy:
* jobs shipped overseas in the production line area
* people who simply will not train for better jobs
* the total failure of the "trickle down" concept and separation of rich from poor in the last 4 years
(it is coming out on Romney today that he pays taxes as the same rate as a fireman despite being a millionaire)
We are in a mess / we continue in the same mess / not one dab of statesmanship seems to exist in government right now.
