How is it that people are so poor they must live in the projects, but still drive cars like Lincoln Navigators, Lexus, Cadillacs? I see someone bought a new Mustang not long ago. One woman has a champagne colored Lincoln sedan and a black Caddy. I don't understand this. Yet, they still get food stamps as well? Please explain this.

Just wait almost all of them get repo'd for non payment then some idiot car lot has another "no one turned away" sale and the cycle starts again. It is the low income lend/lease program.

income from dealing and prostitution is all cash, not reported as income. if the fraud department at welfare would do their job this wouldn't be happening.

IMHO, Dealing and Hooking are SMALL POTATOES compared to the money in:

1) Getting yourself (and your boyfriend) on Social Security Disability.

2) Getting your kids declared "Learning Disabled" and getting an SS check for each of them.

A family of (4) can get $4000 bucks a month (tax free) that way.

This is one reason that governments are broke....
(many other reasons, too....)

John Horan the "Poverty Pimp" lets drug dealers and crooks live in the projects. He also uses our tax money to get them central air and free Internet. He uses your federal tax money to take them to waldamer and pays their gas and electric. The problem is John Horan turns his eye so he can put his name on buildings. I say drug test the welfare and see how empty the projects get.

Doesn't the central air just plain p i s s you off? I own my home and can't afford central air! Oh wait. I worked for it. Everyone turns a blind eye to them.

Actually,

I don't want to let the idiots have the money. It's mine and other taxpayers money. We should be able to choose how they spend it.

We are happier than you. That makes us successful despite our meager creature comforts. Come join us if you think living hand to mouth is easy and fun. We give thanks for the few blessings we have while you curse at us for the fate that has been bestowed upon you. We will say a prayer for your tortured soul.

If you have a new lincoln you will lose yor food stamps/other benefits so fast your head will spin. They check ehicle registrations when they do means esting. The usal lies from the usual dirtbags.

If anyone's soul should be tortured, it isn't mine. Meager comforts my ass. You have more than people who work for a living have, simply for spreading your legs. Often. And my soul isn't tortured, it's content for earning what I have standing up.

Nice choice of language. It says a lot about you. It's unfortunate that all your striving has left you bitter and angry, rather than thankful for your hard earned contentment. We don't have much but praying for your lost soul doesn't cost anything. We'll do that for you in the hope that you can still be saved.
