Soooo, you've busted butt to do the right thing?
You've paid your taxes?

You get NO help
From each according to his ability - or something like that
For that matter, if you've got that much energy, you get to pay for the self-imposed "disability" of alcoholism and drug users
You get to pay for children with John Doe Dads
You get to pay (multiple times) for a Defense Dept that pays up to $424 per gallon for fuel, for a GOA (Federal Financial Watchdogs) to have $$$Million Plus seminars, for a Government that bilols you, now and forever into the future, for Californis Desert Train from nowhere to nowhere.

Obviously, you don't get the concept.
You are capable of working two (or three) jobs, while Doped-up Dan cannot summon the wherewithall to stumble up to the welfare office. Who are you to upset the gravy train?
Get back to work, you ungrateful peon!
Be glad you can do so much while others will not!

Hell, my sisiter-in-law has been on HUD for almost 20years, she got accepted in October 1992, and bi*ches when her rent gets lowered, because if she pays less, she will get less foodstamps...that means she has to spend money on food...can you imagine that...She Has To Spend Money On FOOD!...it should be illegal, lol. Her fridge is stuffed to the gills, mean while, I can never keep milk in mine.

Ok so we stop giving them a check. This means they cannot afford to be doped up. That would mean they are awake and looking for a way to get money without having to work for it. What do they do? Some sell dope, some sell their bodies, but most of them steal from those of us who are working. We have to work so we are not home to protect our house 24/7. It is a catch 22 for us. Either way we lose. So do we go to work with some peace of mind knowing the dope heads are so high, they are not able to rob our homes, or do we quit our jobs so we can protect hour home?

What makes me sick is NOT the HUD but the people who abuse it!!! that is what makes me want to vomit! Our goverments has these programs for everyone who may need them in hard times yet somehow these people who don't care pop out babies do drugs deal drugs don't want to educate them selfs or work etc. get it ALL and the people working jobs and/or people who really need the help sit empty handed because we do the RIGHT thing and those who abuse the system have it ALL!

I agree!
Also, those of us who are truly disabled and/or elderly who've worked and paid into the system lay in bed at night or day due to our illness(s) disability scared and keep getting up which takes a lot to check around the house we rent (not on HUD) and make sure the dope heads aren't breaking in, which in the long run causes more pain and we may have to take an extra pain pill and guess what - those of us who take our pain meds as prescribed for a real & true illness don't get a gallon a day of them we don't get another extra like the pill heads we have to suffer in pain because we had to take it to do an extra task, we abide the law and wait till our next refill is due, it's the pill heads who mess-up us disabled and elderly sick people and makes our dr.'s paranoid to prescribe you much medication to last you through a month because of the dope heads screwing up the whole system!!!! they sale ther pain meds etc. and dr. shop and get tons and those of us who are truly in pain lay in pain because of u damn junkies! Go get clean and live because you could end up with a disability a disease/ illness where you will see u r taking you're life for granted and messing up other's indirectly and directly. Quit messing up the system designed to help those in real need.
