You were engaged in the conversation relating to people receiving living assistance, primarily low income SEction 8. It is a mindset depending on where on lives. If one does not live according to the standards others have set for themselves does not make this wrong. In this article we can see a family fighting to remain in this living environment with no concern.

Do ignore the Idiot reference, please.

FYI to you and the other dumbarse racists......
The Welfare Reform Act of 1996 limited the amount of time a person could be on Welfare to FIVE years over the course of their entire lifetime.
The whole reason it is now called "Temporary Assistance"!
States can also extend assistance of up to 20% of their case load. They can also go beyond 5 years using state only funds and SSB Grants. People can also stay on Section 8 for their whole life( it is also welfare). Don't forget about the SNAP cards either(also a form of welfare).

Don't throw insults and then retract like a coward. Stand up like a big girl and stand by your words. Your words make very little sense especially were you call me and others racist and dumbarse and the just retype what I wrote as some sort of retort.
I know what I said and your story of the woman being evicted has no contradictory evidence to what I said. The woman is not being evicted because of a time limit, she is being evicted based on an accusation of fraud. The story is irrelevant to anything I said.

This article is eye opening and give a lesson on why one should not judge based on the choices others are comfortable with. This family has resided in this low-moderate income high rise building since 1964. They are willing to fight and stay due to it's affordability. Everyone is not interested in "owning" a structure they don't really "own". Their choices don't make them wrong, as they are entitled. It just goes to show that everyone is different and are satisfied by their own desires.
If some big shot real estate mogul(Trump) came along to buy this building, did some renovations and turned these apartments into Condo's how many would see the idiocracy in that?
It's a state of mind in which we live, NOT how we live, necessarily.
Narrow minded individuals whom concentrate on how others live never have time to live their own lives speculating about others.
To each his own and to thy own self be true.
Good Night.

What your failing to mention is both Section 8 and SNAP. Require employment and/or other household income; amongst other requirements. If your going to include those programs, you should included the tens of other forms of financial government assistance granted to homeowners, seniors, veterans and other eligible individuals.

The claim that one can solely live their entire life of off "welfare", by having child after child is false......but you already knew that.

After reading your moving post, I would like to invite you to join our church. Most of our parishioners are just like you: opinionated with no real point. Ever.

You conveniently left out information about your people whom are sick too. it shows a picture of a white boy in a jail uniform.

A jury has convicted 16-year-old Dylan Schumaker of second degree murder in the death of his girlfriend's young son.

Schumaker had pleaded not guilty to killing 23-month-old Austin Smith last March. The jury heard disturbing testimony last week, and during closing argument on Monday, the child's mother sobbed while prosecutors showed the jury graphic photos of her son's lifeless body.
