And you know the people beating people up for sneakers are on welfare how?
Seems like a stretch to know that they would be.
We seem to assume a lot of things these days.
We assume all people on the system don't work, which is not the case.
We assume they must be able to do with out based on what they are wearing or what they have in their hands, we don't know how they got that.
Maybe they were gifts from family, knockoffs, ect.
ETA: You know they sell brand name clothes at those second hand stores right? So to judge them by the clothes they wear is more assumptions.
You shop there so I know you would have seen the brand stuff. Once it goes out of style/season, off to ross and such it goes.
Or it gets donated to good will by people that don't want it anymore.
So again, more assumptions based on little to no knowledge of people.
We just want to put our hands in their pockets, something I am sure you hate when others try and do to you.
Save the " Well it is MY money!!".
It is tax dollars, once I can say I don't want mine spent on wars or subsidizing oil companies then get to me about complaining about it going to help
I don't think the system does protect them, I think people lie.
There isn't much we can do about people lying.
