Seattle welfare recipient lives in million-dollar home | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News
They should bestripped of EVERYTHING and pay all of that money back.
I still love the talk about making food stamps in to cash so it's less embarrassing for the people one it. Wasn't that supposed to be the point?
that was back in another time when people were expected to have some level of self respect and ambitions to better themselves
in case you didnt get the memo, that shit is all over with now
please adjust your attitude accordingly
A "Friend" of mine (I know him, have hung out with him) lives on welfare. Hasn't had a job in over 20 years. He's able-bodied except for a heart condition. Doesn't seem to stop him from smoking a pack a day and drinking a case of day of beer.
He and his wife attend a latin-speaking church 18 miles away. The church sends a bus twice a week to pick him and his family up. He's white, and very intelligent.
He has 14 kids.
Well, the problem here is that the public housing that the town puts him up in (A pretty "ok" duplex) has had it's walls knocked down and made into one large house. Then he outgrew it.
So the town bought a house that 5 years ago was on the market for $500k. They declared eminent domain on the abandoned property, fixed it up, and moved his family into it. He now lives in a posh neighborhood. Free.
This isn't such a strange story, really.
And yo're friends with that piece of shit? put two in 'em for the good of all tax payers.
If you pay people not to work, they probably won't.
I am not surprised. My gf is a case worked and if I told you guys all the shit I heard, you would want to burn down the welfare offices. Its that bad.
as opposed to how we feel already?
He's figured out what we all want, apparently. Getting something for nothing. The kids get a notebook on their birthdays, and some pencils on christmas. The wife can benefit because now that her uterus is hanging from her groin by the Fallopian tubes, she has a place to hide the remote. It's a win-win.
Let me tell you, on the other hand, who I DID stand up to. I dropped a client who is an operating non-profit out of Bridgeport. These fine folks take in liars. Flat-out liars. Every week, they have a food bank, where conversations frequently go like this:
"What's your name, sir?"
"Freight Train." (Cleveland show reference, but some other silly negro name instead)
"And how many in your house?"
"Last week you said you had three."
"I got Fo"
"Ok Freighttrain, take 8 bags of groceries."
"uh huh" <crip walks away>
This same place, after the few bad storms we have received, told all it's indigents that they could go to Waterbury Social Services,"... because there is a woman working there named 'Sharnice' who will accept any claim for lost property. Tell them your roof is damaged, and she'll get you at least $1500"
But Sharnice only lies for other blacks, "..so be sure your boyfriend goes and does it."
Upon reporting Sharnice to whatever Waterbury authority I could (I'm "friends" with those assholes as well) nothing was done. Sharnice is still a champion of black gimme-gimmes.
Also, on any given day I drive the oldest car in the parking lot.
its not just what the do, but how many people do it.
i say end it and fend for yourselves. if they cant feed their kids, oh well. plenty of kids in the other countries go hungry too.
The fucks around here sell there stamps. I also get so pissed when I see people buy 3 packs of smokes 8-9 bucks a pack then buy 50-100 bucks in lotto tickets. After they buy that in cash they will get a few ovepriced chips, candy and soda on their welfare card. SInce no one will end welfare, I think that they should have a food bank setup compared to the card. The people buy over priced food and junkfood. Atleast with a food bank they can buy in bulk to get a better deal and possibly save us a few bucks.
Too bad america as a whole are pussies about pissing people off and actually making them work or earn their benefits. Also, some breeding controls would be greats. Cel's friends 14 kids if each has 2 kids will be 28 new people leeching off the system.
If I was in charge....
EBT cards would be good for staple items only, bread, milk, eggs, fruits, and veggies. Anything in a box or carton must be generic/store brand. No soda. Only 100% juices, and again, store brand. It would not be valid on any meat/fish of more than 1.99 a lb. So that means, chicken, pork, and some crappy cuts of beef. Not steaks, lobster, and other $10+ per pound cuts.
And that's if you were able to get one.... The application process would be a pain in the ass, require that you can write your name and fill in the 5-10 page form correctly, or you get rejected immediately on the spot and have a 7 day waiting period to re-apply again next week. Max of 3 applications total per household (used liberally).
When it actually becomes something hard to get, it wil wein it self off on its own.
But then Al Sharpton or some other "reverse-racist" will go on and on about how this targets black folks. Mother fucker, it targets stupid people of all color, race, and laziness.
I remember back when I was a traveling, dirty youngin' we arrived in San Fran, and the first thing our friend did was give us a piece of paper with an address, and a couple names on it, took us down to public assistance, and we walked out with almost a thousand dollars worth of food stamps ...ahhhh the life of luxury. You can get 80 fucking cents on the dollar from the right guy when you picked up your stamps, which he immediately turned around to use to buy heroin, or crack, it was awesome to see our liberal government in motion.
i think the welfare system should be dropped altogether.
Unfortunately there's a LOT of people that really need it, not just crack whores that squeeze out babies for profit.
The problem isn't welfare, it's the mentality that "the government owes me something" that the welfare system has been propagating for decades that's the problem. We have an entire class of people now that were born on, and will die on welfare, it's all they know now. No one ever taught them that hard work will get you ahead, they were taught that the government will get them by. People are taught that their environment is set, and a result of someone else, therefore no responsibility is their own.
I would like it so that i only had to pay for me and mine. i don't mind paying taxes. i just dont like taking care of... well everyone else.
