Actually it reminds me of stories of the 30's and 40s when people were too proud to collect unemployment even though there wasn't much in the way of work and jobs to be found. The same folks who chose to clean restrooms and sweep streets for minimum wage.
...I have to admit, I highly respect those people who find a way to get by without public assistance even when they qualify for it.

But until you walk in these people's shoes, you have no idea how hard it is to "get out".
Its like asking the poor kid in India who is working in a sweatshop at 10 years old and dropped out of school: why don't you go to college and make your life better?!

oh so you live in a mud hut where you get solar power? no we need the internet to make min by min transactions we need education or do you go to doc that has a 5th grade education? what about the lawyer or judge or do you think they get their certificate out of a cracker jack box?
if you are a slave then no you do not need an education for you do not need to read, what would the employer think if you knew the tax, workers comp laws or how to read the MSDS? you are not of the real world, no you live in a world where there is the rich and the slaves. yes thees thing's are not in the Constitution, but then are they, "life, liberty and the pursue of happiness " for it is
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." not in the Constitution pre say but still we have the right to seek them.If you do not like it, tell your congress person that you will not pay for nor approve of ed, health., nor the right to get help when needed. that all are meant to be uneducated, poor, and have no power, lights, nor transportation. for that is what i read in you.
