What a load of trollocks...the majority of fat people I see in the high street are the unemployed mothers of 6 children to 6 different fathers,
generally covered in tattoos, complete with cigarette hanging out of their mouths...go to their home and you'll see the 50" tv, complete with
satellite system and all of their kids dressed in designer clothing..
Thats one of the most ignorant, classicist statements I have ever read on ATS..wdu..
I totally agree with that, sadly though relying on benefits as a lifestyle choice and is spreading out from the few hardcore unemployable types to a
larger section of the community. That, I'm sure you will agree needs to be stopped in it's tracks, because lets face it, it's hardly a good life is
and who are you to judge what a good life is. What is so much better in your life. You are defending the creation of an underclass. Yes think you are
better than these peeps if you wish. You will not feel so clever when you or your children are standing next to them with a broom in hand working for
£60 a week.
Stop vilifying the common man. He is no different to you. If you want to vilify someone go for the bankers and politicians that have leached the
working man dry...
But it's no less true than the statement that I was replying to claiming that all unemployed people are thin and gaunt...of course they
aren't...that is complete trollocks and you know it.
I am not vilifying the common man, where did you get that idea? I do have an issue with people who have no intention of ever working and women who
produce child after child in order to receive benefits. I only ever had one child because I could not have afforded to have any more, but sadly there
is a section of the community that see reproduction as a career and until recently could earn over £35000 per year just in tax credits and child
benefit...that's just wrong and if you think that I'm making this up, then it is you who are deluded and not looking at the reality.
And I don't see how I am defending the creation of an underclass, what I am saying is that if we accepted that we have to pay more for goods
manufactured in this country rather than importing cheap products from China there would be more employment..yes we would probably have to do without
a tv in every room and 4 different games consoles and a new mobile phone every 6 months, but it would be worth it in the long run, because we would
have a growing economy.
Also I highly doubt my daughter will be standing with a broom in her hand, that is why she is focusing on her education, it means that we don't have
much money this now, but she is investing in her future and she realises that you don't get something for nothing, a lesson that more people should
take to heart. And before you say it, yes some graduates don't immediately find employment, and some of them...shock horror...may have to take a
lower paid job to get them started, but a person with a hard work ethic who is prepared to give 100% to their future will soon move up the ladder.
I realise that there are many people on this forum who believe that there is a different way and that we shouldn't be wage slaves etc, but often they
fail to see the irony that they are typing on this forum on a cheap imported computer/mobile device and benefiting from access to the internet and how
do they think it would really work if that system was dismantled. Not saying it is perfect, obviously it isn't but what alternatives are there
For the record, I also hate the cheating bankers, but sitting around moaning about them isn't going to change anything is it, yet again, we have no
alternative system, so it's better to make the most of what we have right now and just knuckle down and get on with what we have got to do to feed
our families and make the best of our lives.
