While people in transition may need some help, there is plenty of community service that needs to be done so they can "earn" the money. The public library needs volunteers; the police department, graffiti removal, weed abatement etc. They should be a part of making the community a better place, and not a drain.

I agree whole heartedly. If you're not physically or severely mentally disabled and on public assistance, you should be put to work doing things to improve the community.

until we are willing to let children starve we can never fix it without raising taxes

Instead of raising taxes, on those of us who already pay, how bout the other 49% pay their fair share? The only way to "fix it" is to make people responsible for their own decisions. It's not your God given right to have kids you can't afford to support. I'll support mine, you support yours'.

oh I agree with you for the most part.. its just with current child neglect laws in place cutting off the welfare will cost more than continuing it.. for example a mother with two kids will get 360.00 in food stamps and 800 in cash aid monthly. if she's on section 8 we can add another 1,500 to the total which brings us to 2,660.00 monthly they are getting off the taxpayer.. lets take the welfare out of the equation and take the 2 kids and give them to cps.. im not sure what it is now but in the late 90's it was 5,000 per child per month.. so now the tax payer is on the hook for 10 grand opposed to the 2,660 bucks.. see the welfare is saving us cash.. unless like I said we ditch the child neglect laws and allow kids to suffer..

I see your point. And I don't think kids should suffer. But, if I have to put on my panty hose and go to work--then so should that parent. She's being well compensated to do community service. Maybe the 2, 3, 4 child wouldn't be so attractive if they had to put in 8 hours of grind like us. Well, the day actually gets longer when you factor in; an hour in the morning to get ready for work, hour to get to work, hour lunch, hour home, hour to fix dinner, hour to clean up. . .whew, I think I'll just sit on my butt and collect welfare.

I think the biggest problem with our social services are that they are set up to benefit the rich.. instead of food stamps that go to stores and into their quarterly earning statements why don't we purchase food in bulk and distribute it to needy folks? instead of section 8 voucher money going to wealthy land owners who rent out hundreds of houses why not buy large dorms and allow the folks to stay there.. nobody wants to live in a dorm type setting and I think that will push more people to try and get out of poverty opposed to giving them a house to live in.. I'd like to see food stamps changed into food handouts and section 8 turned into dorm style housing..

Well because then they couldn't push their shopping cart up ahead of you, loaded with stuff you can't afford to buy, while you stand there and watch them get their coupons out. Maybe they should do a stint at Valley Restart or something like that. I think Sheriff Joe, over there in Arizona, has the right idea. Tent city. You want something other then a baloney sandwich, then you gotta pay for it.

YEP will admit it burns me up ..when I see them with steak and lobster in their carts and I have chicken and hamburger. Then they are pulling out cash to buy a carton of cigarettes.

Always and I mean always ... I say to the cashier when I get up there WTF. They always nod back ...and say " I know".

Nobody has a problem helping VET's. First welfare child, maybe. After that--shoulda planned better. My eyes are not deceiving me when I see what they buy. When they are talking on their cell phone, showing off their manicured fake nails, highlighted hair, looking like they don't have a care in the world, while I'm on my lunch hour trying to get dinner for the evening meal, are my eyes deceiving me then?
Not!

You can thank Jeff Stone and Company for dumping all the welfare services in Hemet. He says that's where they are needed. He must never have been to Elsinore, Perris, Moreno Valley, etc. He is a liar and must go. Recall STONE

I had to live on welfare when I was a kid in the 50's and believe me it was humiliating. Our father walked away and left all four of us kids and our mother with nothing. We got to live in the projects. Or should I say reject ville, we also had to stand in line to receive commodities not food stamps. It really humbles you. Try sitting all day at the community hospital if you were sick. We were looked down on like lepers. It sure made me hate the thought of being on welfare. Eventually I was sent to a foster home because my mom didn't have the means to take care of us all. They have made getting welfare way to easy now and that's why so many people abuse it.
I agree that Jeff Stone needs to go. He thinks that Hemet is the red headed step child. I invited him to an event our group was having here and he turned his nose up at it.

I'm sorry you had a rough start. They say you will work harder, for what you didn't have. We were taught the way to improve your life was to get your schooling, and work hard. I think that is good advice for anybody. My mom, made us speak correctly, dress for school like we were going to work, and respect your elders. Didn't have to agree with them, but show respect. Somehow today kids expect they are going to continue the life style they had with their parents. Or if you are a welfare baby, all is going to continue on. They show no respect for themselves, or others.
