when i was a kid, welfare moms stayed in bed most of the day, now they're up early walking the streets with their stroller bound gravy trains. why are they getting up so early? what has caused this surge in the ambition of the dregs? anyone have an answer?

maybe they're afraid of a government shutdown stopping their check and are out looking for new income? who knows.

Maybe you assume they are all on welfare but some actually aren't. Just because you are a young parent doesn't mean you aren't in a situation where help isn't needed! With all of the opinions I see on town forums by you maybe you have reason to redirect who's being written about.

To answer the original question posted by Calm Cents....

The reason for this plight is the lack of manufacuting jobs that once exsisted in the area. We are living in an echo of past economic success.

The only reason Herkimer's polulation has not completely bottomed out is because its the county seat, and people from around the county move here to be close to the services administered by the county (hud, health services ect.).
