Rich people so mad.
So very mad.
BUT I can sort of understand it. US tax dollars go to a lot of stupid #, and the masses like to focus on welfare and such. They always have.
No one can say it is a perfect system. I personally know many people taking advantage of these systems, using YOUR tax dollars to buy more weed and
video games. These people at least, however, look for employment and handle some responsibility. I know their are many who abuse the system far worse
than even that. For example, I was behind a woman using food-stamps to buy TEN "crates" of sour punch straws. She had 3 kids, all of which were
morbidly obese, as she herself was.
Should she be receiving benefits?
Welfare can and will always be abused. But lets not forget those who really need it. My girlfriend, in fact, receives food-stamps, and she has a car.
She uses said car to attend full-time college courses in hope of getting a degree to get a job. (I don't have the heart to tell her college is a
deceiving and lucrative business)
She has had a job her entire working life until now, on account of most local stores closing thanks to wall-mart and food-max.
Should she have her car taken?
There is no logical or reasonable way to make sure the system is not abused. But to take it away from those who abuse it is to also steal from good,
hard-working Americans who need it. And really, with how much BS our tax dollars go to, welfare and other care packages should be the LEAST of our
To say those on food-stamps need to be kept poor is not ignorance. It is not just snobbishness. It is evil.
It is a desire to have what others do not, even if it means stealing what they have. Anyone who proposes this is not only a fool, but a bastardly one
I do not expect any law or bill like this to pass, at least not while a reasonable number of people and media outlets are aware of it. The moment we
forget, however, I fear they may rush some sort of legislation through.
