Some one at work today reminded me of something that happen to me around 8 years ago when I was unemployed. I was looking for a job, and some one actually had the nerve to ask me this. Here's how it went:

Person: You looking for a job?

Me: Yes, any ideas where I can find one?

Person: Why don't you sign up for a check?(He gets a disability check himself)

Me: What am I going to draw a check for? Being "Lazy".

Person:(No response, and walks away embarrassed.)

In my opinion this defines most people who gets a check around here to a tee. Not saying every one is getting one simply because, but most are. Don't get me wrong, I was born and raised here, but I have seen how bad people have become dependent on the government, and I take pride in saying I work full-time. I have been working for 14 years. I started working as soon as I entered high school, and I refuse to get government assistance in any way unless I have to. Its been years since I have had even 1 food stamp. I have busted by butt to get where I am today, and starting next month I will be going for my second degree.
I was raised poor. My dad was always between jobs, and for years was an alcoholic. My mom was a house wife. They were both very uneducated because of the time they grew up having to help their families.(Both born in 1940s). So I know things can be hard, but where there's a will there's a way. I refused to live the way they did. Not because I was ashamed, but because I didn't want my children to go without like I did.(If I ever have children). I also was raised with morals, so I didn't feel it was right to take away government money I didn't absolutely have to receive.

With the way things are getting, I most certainly hope that they won't get like this in the near or distant future...

No seriously, we really need to keep our young people high school age and younger in our prayers every day, because they will be in the middle of all of this mess when it does break down.

No one answered the Question, Where are all the jobs at? It,s always someone getting down on someone because they don't work. I am sure their a lot of people that would rather work than sale drugs or pick up scrap. Come on folks give me a break, and get some jobs here instead of sending them to China. Also leave the people alone that can not find jobs, just because you have a job dose not mean that you could lose yours at anytime. It happens everyday.

Warners, Truseal, MSC, Us steel Elicon National standard American Greetings........All good jobs that you people and your union gods have pissed away....Dont blame the county officials for your stupidity.

The only check I want is a pay check from hard work. Their are a lot of people who need a check but their is ATON more who don't. My mom and dad are fighting for disability right now. My dad has COPD stage 2 almost stage 3 and got denied. My mom has a list a mile long and losing all use of her left side been denied for 4 years. We had a lawyer not going to say any names but everyone said he was the best he didn't do anything to help. Their both almost 50 and people say its because their not 50 or older they cant get it that easy.

I just want to work as a mechanic, welder, and do light fab work to help my parents. Their is no work here cant drive to London everyday and live to fare from town to get work at my home garage. What do I do be like everyone act crazy check myself into a nut house just to get 710 a month. No ill keep trying to be better and someday when im 50 maybe ill have something here.

You wouldn't draw a check for being lazy dumbarse. You'd draw one because the good lord above accidently put your arse where your face should have been.

As bad as I hate to admit it, unless something extremely disastrous happens, I'm afraid you are very correct my friend.
