This has not taught me to be dependent on state assistance, it has taught me to loath it. However, some times there is just nothing that can be done and people need a little bit of help. I'm sorry you feel it's all a joke, and I very much wish you never have to know the reality of it
you are probably not the lady in the muumuu in front of me with 4 kids, 5 bags of chips, sugar coated cereal, and 3 liters of pop.
assistance is made for those to whom SH. it is not meant to be a life style choice. it is also not meant to be a vote buying tool.
you do not deserve to have my money just because SH. however, the government will take from me and give to you...they take what i would, and do, gladly give
...because i don't want to see people starving in the street and i know very will that S does H.
it's not really laughter you hear. it's frustration that we have gone from a people who help those in need, to a government who steals from one to give to another. i don't blame you for that. you take advantage of what is available, as any family would.
