...can and is being corrupted. This is the reason I and others keep telling all who will hear that welfare, socialism and communism won't work or it just works for the ruling elite.

The Rant;

I will be as honest about this event as I can.

At Walmart last week this family of 6 had three grocery carts, two filled with food, one just with meat, the other with the rest of the food , the third with stuff that you can't buy with ( here it comes) FOOD STAMPS. This cart totaled less that 50 bucks. It was difficult for me to get the correct amount for the other two carts but it was a lot of stamps( stamps = tax payers money). This is the reason it got my attention when I got in line behind them, I knew it was going to be a lot of money. Then I saw the food stamps come out. Now I wasn't judging these people I know times can be hard, so I lost interest until this happened.

The rest of the story.

After the food stamps transaction was completed the man pulls out of the wallet 400 dollars in four 100$ bills and has the cashier give him four hundred dollars in 10 dollar bills. Strange! Well they leave, I check out and I need gasoline so I go the the cheapest place in town and what do I find, yup this family getting 400 dollars in ( ya'll ready?) lottery scratch off tickets

Four hundred dollars of the same ones. Now you tell me that the system ain't broken!

AND, you know that isn't all that they are getting from the Government.

It don't pay to work!

You got it. The best way to get government aide is to have a bunch of kids before you're making any sort of decent money. So there's our future... 6 kids who are being taught to have lots of kids, mooch off the gov't, and money is to be gambled (played) with.

If your a single person with a good job the gov't taxes the hell out of you!
