A lesson in economics.

Learning from Obituaries....

It seems that every couple of days New Orleans loses one of its treasured ENTREPRENEURS .

Lets get the players straight before we go on with this. interpretation of data not verified but...

LARMONDO "FLAIR" ALLEN His Companion (NOT married with children: Kawanner Armstrong His Sons : Christian Allen Kwan Allen Larmondo Allen, Jr.

His Daughters: Deidra Allen Larmenshell Allen Lamonshea Allen Larmomdriel Allen Larmerja Allen Korevell Allen

AT AGE 25 - He had 9 Children. (Could Kawanner Armstrong Possibly Be The Mother Of All Of His Kids?)

His Father: Burnell Thompson His Mother: Esther Allen His Stepfather: Bruce Gordy

His Brothers: Burnell Thompson Edgar Thompson Wil Willis Danta Edwards Reshe Edwards Mattnell Allen Burnell Allen Lester Allen

(At least FOUR different fathers (?) ++++++++++

His Sisters: Shannail Craig Lekiksha Thompson Gwendolyn Carter Jessica Willis Katina Gordy

Grandparents: Delors Allen J.C. Allen Anna Laura Thompson Will Thompson

So, lets see now....

His Father, Burnell Thompson, fathered his brothers Burnell, Edgar and his sister Lekiksha. His Stepfather, Bruce Gordy, fathered his Sister Katina. His Mother, Esther Allen, must have been unwed when she gave birth to: Larmondo, Mattnell, Burnell and Lester. We don't know who fathered Wil Willis and Jessica Willis, or Dante and Reshe Edwards. Lets hope sisters Shannail Craig and Gwendolyn Carter are married.

GOT THE ABOVE ALL STRAIGHT? ********** NOW, THE REST OF THE STORY

He was 25 and had 3 sons and 6 daughters. NINE welfare recipients collecting $950 each per month..... That equals $8,550 a month !!! Now add Food Stamps, Free medical, Free school lunches, and on and on .......

Do the math...$102,000+/year.

Anyone out there, sittin' on their butt while reading this e-mail, making A HUNDRED GRAND a year doing nothing?

Now that, to me, is a real Entrepreneur. (ALSO, BECAUSE OF THEIR FATHERS DEATH, ALL OF THE KIDS WILL COLLECT SOCIAL SECURITY UNTIL THEY ARE 18).

EVEN BETTER...IF "FLAIR'S" THIRTEEN BROTHERS & SISTERS FOLLOWED HIS ENTREPRENEURIAL STRATEGY--THAT'S AN ADDITIONAL $1.3 MILLION PER YEAR BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE!

IF ALL THIRTEEN BROTHERS AND SISTERS CAN DUPLICATE HIS FEAT OF 9 WELFARE STRATEGISTS, THAT BREEDS 117 NEW RECIPIENTS COLLECTING $100,000/YR!!...OR AN ADDITIONAL $11,700,000PER YEAR... &THAT'S ONE DAMN FAMILY (And it demands 100% of the Taxes Paid by 1,000 average taxpayers).

And THAT is why this once great country is BANKRUPT!!

Yeah, but think how many jobs he created by making so much work for so many bureaucrats. This guy was a true national treasure. Nancy Pelousy should nominate him for some sort o congressional award.

His obituary clearly shows the value of Cambridge (list terminating) comma for clear writing.

The most chaotic annual event in the universe: Father’s Day in NOLA.

... died of gunshots wounds on Martin Luther King Boulevard.
Gee, how unexpected. BTW, I wonder who in the family had the brains to remember all the names?
My guess is they had to call over to the welfare office for a print out.

I heard he was turning his life around and hoped to marry the mother of some of his children.

I have a feeling that there were probably several omissions. I love the reference that he was an "entreprenuer". I wonder what kind of "commerce" he was in. :)

Well, it’s a lot of money to spend on one family, but I’m sure they are very grateful to thankful to the taxpayers and the investment will pay off by thier contributions to medicine, science, and their philanthropy.

As he died fom gunshot wounds, it's likely they described him as an "entrepreneur" as a euphemism for what he was doing to bring in some extra off-the-books money, tax free, while perhaps also causing some other obituaries to get written.

Now just imagine if they caught the guy who shot him, an he turns out to be a white Hispanic who says it was in self defense!

I was curious about that too, so I went to the Social Security Website and saw this:

"Your unmarried children who are under 18 (up to age 19 if attending elementary or secondary school full time) can be eligible to receive Social Security benefits when you die. And your child can get benefits at any age if he or she was disabled before age 22 and remains disabled. Besides your natural children, your stepchildren, grandchildren, step grandchildren or adopted children may receive benefits under certain circumstances.

A child under age 18 (19 if still in elementary or secondary school) or disabled -- 75 percent of the father's annual income.

There's a limit to the amount that family members can receive each month. The limit varies, but it is generally equal to about 150 to 180 percent of the basic benefit rate."

So if I read that, it is possible (according to the site) that the mother receives a maximum of 75% of her children's father's annual income if she is not working and caring for them. The maximum a single child would get would be 75% of the father's income up to the age of 18. if there are multiple children, as a group they would get 150-180% altogether of their father's income.

So, if the father made $100K a year for a certain number of years, then at death, his wife would get $75K, and his kid would get $75K. Depending on how many "Credits" have been accumulated by the father's work, the more the aggregate group of children would get, but likely if four or more, the maximum amount for all of them would be $180K per year.

The thing I don't understand, is what if the father doesn't work? Do they count unemployment benefits or any other kind of government assistance towards the annual income when calculating how much survivors get? There was a small paragraph that indicates there is a minimum amount of some kind: "...The number of credits you need to have family members be eligible for survivors benefits depends on your age when you die. The younger you are, the fewer credits you need, but nobody needs more than 40 credits (10 years of work). Under a special rule, we can pay benefits to your children and your spouse who is caring for the children even if you don't have the number of credits needed. They can get benefits if you have credits for one and one-half year's work (6 credits) in the three years just before your death.

I bet as sure as God made little green apples, that there is an accommodation for someone whose deceased "spouse", "partner" or "father" has no recorded income.

OK, but the part I quoted was about welfare they’re already allegedly receiving, not Social Security.

Ah. My mistake...funny, I just fixated on the SS part, not the welfare part.

Doing a search on this is interesting, because to some leftists (like this libtard at "Cop In The Hood": Right wing lies...) this specific case is proof of right wing idiocy, where we just willy-nilly take an email as gospel truth and post it.

(Heh, I guess the difference between liberals and conservatives is that we take emails as gospel truth, and they take the oral effluence of liberal politicians and race baiters as gospel truth)

But that aside, there is a lot here to question, but there is no doubt that given the way the laws are written, and the way the bureaucracy is administered, there are huge swaths of money that are given to welfare recipients with a wink and a nudge.

"Okay, Lamonshea, how much did the father of your children make? Oh, you don't have his W-2 forms? Okay, how much do you THINK he made? We can put that down and figure out how to quantify that later..."

Having a street named after MLK is an ingenious way of telling you that you’re in the wrong neighborhood.
