You need to shut your damn mouth. You take every topic and make it about how you pay for everybody to do this and that. You're gonna pay taxes dude. Don't get all butthurt because you pay the same damn taxes everyone else does. You're not gonna see that money ever again so get over it. I don't give two shits if the chick in front of me at walmart is using a link card while talking on her iphone. People deserve the chace to be happy no matter what their monitary situation is. If that means saving what little cash you can get your hands on to save up for something you want while using state aid so be it. So shut up and kick rocks!

Thank you very much! People who work and are on state aid pay taxes too. But I'm sure he doesn't know that or care to know.

THE FACTS:
1. 48% of Americans pay NO federal income tax.
2. If you are on state aid I seriously doubt you are a taxpayer.
3. I am sick and tired of working hard only so lowlifes can live for free. [email protected] YOU!!!

I bet your part of that 48% too. I work just like you do, probably even harder than you do. The cost of living is outrageous if you have not realized. The government is broke, the state is broke, employers are broke. Everybody is broke! Now if your such a hard earning citizen why don't you get off your ass, get off topix & get your bitter a$$ back to work.

Dear Lost Morals,
Your elders want you to not listen to the retarded "adults" on this site who seemingly took a sincere question and turned it into a tax debate. Don't end up like these fools who troll websites looking for a fight. Paint a picture, play music, do something creative. But first and foremost do it with love and all your heart. Be yourself, be productive, be respectful and sincere. And please for god sakes when you start to drive use your turn signals (that was a joke). Every generation that came before one had something or many things they felt was wrong with the generation that came after them. I'm sure you'll be fine, just find your direction and GO! Learn about the world and other cultures, eat a food from a country you never heard of, expand your mind. Don't close off people because they different in any way. The smartest thing you could do is educate yourself. For knowledge is a gift that never can be returned, only ignored and neglected. Good Luck!

Use topix as a fine example of how NOT to be. Do good in school, involve yourself in sports or other productive activities....further your education after high school.

But please don't use the word retarded to refer to other people. It isn't appropriate and considering that most mentally handicapped people are more intelligent than the folks that post on Topix.

Very good advice, personally I am into astronomy, astrophotography is a new addition as of late, I am also a student. I agree with this comment knowledge is a gift that only you can have complete control over it. Maryville University Student speaking
