Sorry dude, I'm calling BS on that that. There are nowhere near as many welfare queens as you make it sound. I was a loss prevention detective at a
supermarket for about six years. I got to know all the regular welfare people there. Most of them would show up first of the month when their benefit
was paid. I never saw ANY of them with a brand new car. Now some had newer cars, but nothing extravagant. Working single mothers need a car to get to
and from work, to run the kids around. But even there, most people on welfare came by cab, or on the bus.
Here is the one excpetion. And it was so rare, that we actually called her the welfare queen. Nasty attitude fat black lady with her nails done,
always some new weave, all the jewelry, never the same outfit twice. Smacked her kids around, always hassled the cashiers about how much money she was
"supposed" to have on her card. Poor girls would always wind up having to put back a half a cart full of stuff after this woman left.
Anyway, this woman drove a blinged out Escalade. She had been coming to the store for a year or so, when one afternoon the local PD swarmed in on her
as she was just finishing putting her groceries in the car. Turns out the Cadillac wasn't hers, it was her boyfriend's. He had just been raided for
drug trafficking. She got popped on a conspiracy charge and a weapons charge for the unregistered gun in her bag. Her kids wound up in state-care.
It's been about five years now and those kids are still living at the group home where one of my girlfriends works.
So, a few things can be drawn from that. First, that just because someone is driving a car, doesn't mean it is theirs. Second, you see those welfare
queens. Dont worry, you wont be paying long for their welfare. You'll be paying for their prison meals soon enough. And paying to take care of their
kids in group homes.
And one more quick note. There was actually another woman with an Escalade. Pleasant, young woman. A customer actually gave her guff one evening,
noticed that she had payed with a benefit card and then was putting her kids and groceries in a nice new Escalade. the poor young woman actually broke
down in tears as this moron took out all of their problems on her. The truck was actually a Christmas gift from her husband a few months before he was
killed in Afghanistan.
