PANDA, I agree 1000% what you said. But delivering facts to liberals is like speaking martin to them. AND, when they finally get together about what you said, IT WON'T LOOK LIKE ANYTING YOU SAID!!! They love living in thier fantasy feel good world and will DESTROY anything that threatens said fantasy. The LIV (low information voters) will follow them goose stepping all the way to the handout line!! I don't know the asnwer, it does seem that those who want to take,take,take are pretty close in numbers to those who produce. I fear for our once GREAT country that said, education, get a job, marry and get a home and start a family.

As long as he is getting help he will not grow up. It's difficult for a mother to shut down the bank when her kid is 'hurting', if you are a Christian, maybe you can remind her that scripture says about your problem is, (my paraphrase) if they will not work neither shall they eat.

Sorry, but it's your fault too. He wouldn't be a sucking leech if he had a childhood that praised the work ethic and showed that people earned, not sponged, their keep.
As for now, are you sure that you have a partnership ? I have a former friend who is a enabling Mommy. She has vowed often, after her little (in his 30s), darlin' has had his last help from her. Then let him move in with his 50-some year old "girl" friend and steal checks out of the back of her checkbook. She is no longer my friend. You face somewhat the same situation. Why not just put the kid's name on your bank account ?

My father had the same problem with my mother and older brother. My mother refused to realize that she held all of the cards, not my brother. You need to get your wife to realize that she has all the cards and if he wants any help he needs to do what she requests. It took my brother quite a few years after mom and dad died to realize how bad he screwed everyone including himself.

On Tuesday, President Obama and the first lady used the State of the Union spotlight to pay tribute to an innocent teenage girl shot and killed by Chicago gang thugs. On Friday, Obama will travel to the Windy City to decry violence and crusade for more gun laws in the town with the strictest gun laws and bloodiest gun-related death tolls in America.

Does the White House really want to open up a national conversation about the state of Chicago? OK, let's talk.

Obama, his wife, his campaign strategists, his closest cronies and his biggest bundlers all hail from Chicago. Senior adviser and...
