At work last night I encountered a woman with over $500 on her food stamp card. How does that happen? That's more than I make in two months. Guess going to school and working is the wrong way to go about it. Should get on the draw and be set for life!

Saw in the paper were a single mom with five kids said she could not affor to work becasue she would lose her $89,000 of handouts. Don't know the details nor do I believe she gets that much in "handouts". That soes tell you about the big government handouts to these single moms with lots of kids.

I am a mother of three and receive little assistance from the government, for example my sorry ex husband doesn't pay his child support most of the time and i am only able to draw eighty a month tanf because i work. Food stamps are the same, if i were to quit my job and sit on my ass then I would receive more help. It seems to me that unless you are disabled then a job should be a requirement to get government help.

One critical bit of information you have seem to left out: The FICA tax is insurance, not entitlement. If there was no FICA tax, people would be purchasing disability insurance privately from business that don't like to lie up to their end of things.

This is why some important industries MUST be nationalized, as some as now.

people in lee county can get welfare simple. If your a wh*re and have 3-4 kids you can get all you need. A working person who needs help cant get it cause they actually held a job. If your a wh*re, a druggie or a drunk the system is for you therefor, they never have to become anything else....but freeloaders

Don't leave the 'nut checks' out. Having a job should be a requirement of Welfare. Each person would need a tax paying citizen to sponsor them to be on Welfare. Things would change quickly.

For shame. ALL of you. For shame.

If we all understood that eveyrone has their own battles to fight, insecurities to face, loves to contend and goals to attain, the world would be a gentler place.
