8. Ok, let us look it logically...

Here is a program welfare..that has a 99.9 percent success rate, and .01 fraud rate. 600 people live out of state..

Yes, we still have free speech here. But this is not Right Wing let us bash welfare.com.

In this case ..it is slanting news. A very small amount of fraud in a program, is expected of course..is made into look like a huge amount,
600 without telling the whole of the story. You tell the whole of the story to be fair and honest, and this story is not honest and truthfull. Why ?
by itself the 600 is not the whole story and you tell it ...as if it is the whole story kinda like fox news....In this case, knowledge is a slanted lie.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The idiot media reported that 50,000 checks were sent out to the wrong people and were fradulent for ..if I recall, Bush's rebate
program. (this was reported a couple of years ago) Now, 50,000 is a lot of so called fradulent checks and they were sent out by the "social security administration" The clear infernce was the the social security administration is foolish and incompetent for sending out so many bad checks...on a "program"

So...an internal audit was run, a self audit by social security adminstration..(it might have been some other agency)..and they found out the following. between 30 and 40 million checks were sent out, and and the success rate was 99.7 that is 99.7 percent went to the
right people and were legal. The remaining 50,000 it was found went to mostly legal addresses, but the people had moved..Some had
moved to jail on convictions. Again the inference was, these were illegal checks..but I recall .....with further inspection it was found
that most of the jail recipients really had those checks coming to them because they were legally employed at the time they were sent.
Jail was a result of some other kind of issue, not those checks..

So the idiot media reports that 50,000 checks were fradulent...and wastefull, but the media did not report the results of the
internal inspection by the agency involved. I looked for it, it was only in the progressive press that the results got a lot of coverage
That is why it is a fraudlent story not the truth. Any business or government agency for that matter that has a 99.7 success rate on a project is doing pretty good, as opposed to being incompetent..That is why your story about "knowledge is power" is slanted and untruthful. You have not presented a truthful story. We all know that...Do you? That is why someone called you an idiot.


Take these kinds of stories somewhere else..not here..There are enough of these out there, at fox news, and most right wing media
outlets.. I am sure you know what we are called elsewhere, and the word is not "idiots"...
