The folks at DSS are some of the hardest working people I know. They have a hard job to do and we should be thankful for them.

they work hard to ruin family's is what there best at and the second thing they like to do is help the Hispanic and blacks in this area and they call there selves helpers and expect pats on the back, what they need is a good hard slap in the back side cause they are NOT Above the law or GOD for that matter.

If a child has a bruise Watch out there on you and never leave you alone. My question is when did it come about that children could not get a bruise from falling off a bike or playing rough, not every bruise comes from a beating and there are really good families that need help and the DSS has made it impossible if your not the right race..
and the fact that you have to toss your job to get any help is wrong, you would think that people having a job would be more worthy of getting help than people who do nothing and mooch off the system. Forget getting help unless you are the right color and quit your job. They are the hardest working people, the hardest working at breaking up family's and racism.. GOOD JOB DSS now go back to heck where you all came from cause your leader wants you all back NOW!!

It is sad that you can't figure this out on your own. Read the comments and read between the lines.

It's true you can not just need a little help.You have to take all or nothing with social services.You cant work and need a little help. You to quit your job or not make more than 326.00 a month & the more children you have the more you are rewarded.I do not believe that capable people that sit at home on there butt's should recieve benifiets. They should put a time limit on welfare. Send out social workers to check on the familys that recieve such help. In essence they create more jobs and save money. Because more often than not the people that get the help don't need it. There are jobs to be had, maybe not what you want to do. I don't know what happend to pride and doing the right thing.

If Hispanic's cross our borders illegally for a better life then why do they find it necessary to use the goverment help once they get here paid for by our taxes and used by our poor itís almost like someone taught them how to take advantage of America. There are millions of American's that already live below the poverty line without the Illegal's being thrown in the mix. Why donít they try and apply for citizenship and work hard to learn English and try and support them selves. And it is becoming more and more common that our United States citizens are being turned down for such help. If our country continues on this path no one will get help any longer. It's almost as if Hispanic's think they are entitled to Medicaid when pregnant well have news their not you are supposed to practice safe sex and be responsioble for the children you have. I work hard I pay my taxes I also pay for Insurance (health, life, car & home). I had to save to pay my exorbitant deductible for Blue Cross & Blue Shield. As I sat in the doctors waiting room I watched as one after another non-English speaking Hispanic used Medicaid to pay for their doctor bills. You may ask how do I know ? well because the lady behind the desk complained that it wasn't right for Mexicanís to be eligible for Americaís assistance. I also believe if you are born to two Mexican citizens that your child should also be Mexican, we are the only country in the world that allows this, itís ludicrous. And why it that we allow millions of dollars to be sent to Mexico each year ? We should tax it heavily that way our money is being spent here in America.

the bottom line is that if an average family is working hard to better themselves Social services should be there to help them move up.If i was willing to quit my job i would recieve assistance and my children could have insurance. But beacuse i work a full time job pay my own rent, car payments and bills, but cannot afford to provide insurance to my children ( i would have to write my job a check each week to cover the cost) and social services says i make to much money. And to clairfy for you native.. they do not give assistance to illegal aliens... only to thier children...(same bs if you ask me)
My great grandpa tells of a system where if you wanted government support you put in a hard days work. You know built buildings and dug lakes. Then at the end of the day you were rewarded with food and moneys to help pay bills. But those who were not willing to put in a hard days work got nothing. I wonder why our system is still not that way.. all those jobs that amercians "don't want" could be filled by the millions on our welfare rolls and if they didn't like the job they could find another or get an education.. but if they wanted those foodstamps and medical coverage they would be required to work a 40 hr week just like the rest of us... any thoughts on that?(heevie jeevies i feel the roach crawling)

While I may not agree with the post, you're name calling of that poster is juvenile at best. Offer an opinion, a rebuttal, or just shut the f-up.

I must admit, having become an avid reader as of late; that while a few posts by Mr. Roach make an effort at sensible dialogue, the vast majority from the kind Sir are very telling of a person with little ability to use the gifts of Cranium Jelly, and are borderline waste from the anus of a Chigger... or Red Bug if you prefer.

Ronnie, I have seen Welfare Queens taking the system for years and years.
Getting disability and working for cash under the table,'crazy money' for their kids,food card, free lunch for kids at school, assistance for heat all winter, on and on.
It's a way of life for some.
You've probably got a good heart, some folks just believe the govt. owes them; and they will bleed it until we are bankrupt as a nation.
If the govt. is giving it away, they are in line, early.
