As long as the homeless are Not In My BackYard (NIMBY), I do not care.

As the state gets control of the budget more and more handouts are being cut off. Those who want to work can find something to do that at least equals the handout they were getting. Sadly they would rather have the handout or have nothing. I have never seen a time when so many people felt entitled to be supported with food, phones, heating assistance, SSI, on and on and on. Time to get to work pals. The free ride money is diminishing.

I agree with you 100%. If Obama will ever leave office, the federal welfare will be curtailed as well. My biggest concern these days as that Obama will simply refuse to leave office. I see things on blogs and newspaper posts that suggest we should consider allowing additional presidential terms. NO FREAKING WAY. That would be over my dead body.
