I've always been kinda 'poor'... and I don't see what all the hubbub is about. Never once did it cross my mind that receiving some form of
'welfare' was ever appropriate. It's pretty sad when people hop on the 'welfare' train... because the next stop is a long time after their
departure from responsibility. Granted, there are always circumstances that arise, but cmon!
I know a guy who claimed bankruptcy 4 years ago, due to his own actions... owns 3 houses, rents 2 of them out, owns the largest house in his neighbor
hood, has a nice swimming pool, hot tub, pool table... ultimate bachelor pad... and this a-hole is on food stamps? Not to mention, the 4 other people
living in his current residence are on food stamps! Every single last one of them could be working, but no... They can get the government to pay for
their food, give them cash even, lower their electricity bills, lower internet bills.... and all sorts of other craziness. So basically, there are 5
people... sitting around, nerd herding the internet, eating non stop all day and contributing absolutely nothing to society.
They chose this, we made it possible... time for change!
I demand! lol.... Mandatory drug tests by every single individual who uses welfare!!!
Even if all drugs were legal, still... this vice keeps people poor, and even with government money... they remain poor! I'm getting soooo sick of
paying for other peoples addictions with taxes.
I'm addicted to cigarettes, at $5 a day, x 30, that's $150 a month... lets say I make $300 a week at some crap job... 1200 a month... left after
taxes... 800(if lucky)... then pay rent at $500 a month for a crap room, another 200 a month in random utilities and phone... omg I'm left with only
$100!!!! But I smoke $150 a month on them!!!
How will I ever afford to live?!?! Foodstamps!! and Money from the government!!
Or... quit smoking, and find different means that are in accordance with my wage?!!?
Ahh... prosperity hidden in the shadows...
What I'm getting at... is, Who wants to buy me a pack of cigarettes?
