Isn,t that just great- more tax money being saved.
I hope they all learn their lesson you work for what you get not live off the system. That way you dont have food stamps to sell.
Im happy for all of them.
Rest in peace ,

Great work to those who were involved in busting these parasites. Not only do they take what they can rightfully obtain, they lie to steal as much as they can. I can picture them now, greasy, smelly, unshaven, shitty tattoos, smoking, rotten black stubs of teeth, etc.
What we need to do is select some islands 3000 miles out in the ocean and start dropping these animal off at them. One for welfare parasites, one for murderers, one for rapos, one for thieves, etc.
Of course the liberals would never stand for that....actually if we designated an island for them first it would be a lot easier to handle the other riff raff.

I think the problem is the cost of this.
It must cost allot to open and investigate something like this. Then you have cost of prosecuting them, and we must supply a lawyer to defend them. Then we have to pay someone to collect our money back ( fat Chance ). Then they might get jail time, more money.

How do we handle this.
If kids are invalid do we still cut them off???
Bust them out of the system I think for 5 years.
If they can't support their kids then they should loose them. Talking about people who get busted for stealing for the system.
