There are a bunch of people who do this, Cheat the system, it is sad cause there are some folks who really do need a little help. But i get upset when people abuse the system.

I hate welfare scum wrote:
A Fayette County woman is sentenced to wear a sandwich sign saying she is a welfare thief outside the county court house.
Candi Keith, 27, failed to disclose spousal income after signing up for welfare assistance earlier this year, her probation officer Jonathan Kessler said Friday.
When her crime was discovered, he said she was ordered by Fayette County Judge John Hatcher to serve hard time.
But according to Kesler, Keith was given another option because she had two young children at home: do the time or wear the sign.
She chose the sign.
But while some say the sign fits the crime, others say it stigmatizes convicts beyond recovery.
POOEY! I am so glad this happend. I am laughing myassoff. I can only hope some in Raleigh Co get caught soon.
I say it is a good outcome for everyone. She already stole enough money from tax payers without having to pay for her jail stay. She stays with her kids and it sets and example for others.
Good for Judge Hatcher, we need more creative sentences for non violent offenders.

According to dhhr, i make to much to get any help, but not enough to survive. I have a good job, but the economy has cost me much needed hours at work. It pisses me off when someone lies and cheats to get help. Most people i see on welfare drive nicer cars, have nicer houses, and make alot more money than i do. Granted they make it illegally. Maybe thats what i should do, quit my job and become a drug dealer. Then i would be set. I could get food stamps, insurance, rent and bills paid. I could even get a cell phone ( had ours cut off cause couldnt afford them). Thank goodness im to honest and hard working for that. I still think people who recieve help should have to take drug tests to. Yeah most are pill heads and pills only stay in your system for so long. But you just show up at there door with a cup and count there pills you could get rid of alot of this trash. And thats what they are, trash.
