When was the last time you saw a Section Ape recipient that wasn't obese?
Section Ape isn't the only handout they get. They get free food stamps EBT card, free WIC, free cell phone, and even free internet.
When someone is given everything, they value nothing. This is why Section Ape doesn't work. It turns good neighborhoods into slums.
One breeder will qualify for the Section Ape rental, then have a bunch of other pavement apes living there. Then the neighborhood has to put up with monkeyshines and TNB.

Steelie, if you read the criticizm in that article, it is exactly what i have been speaking of. The allowance of a criminal element, introduced into a safe neighborhood environement, all subsidized with taxpayers funding.....that's the problem in a nutshell....it is the same problem that has ruined many nice suburbs of Chicago, and they even point out an article describing the ruining of areas outside Memphis.....Somehow, this is never spoken of by the president or any of the debate-happy GOP hopefulls......this program needs to be stopped.....

Seems, the federal government has franchised the ghetto, and is anxious to bring it to a neighborhood near you....and all funded by our tax dollars....

Hell we rented a house in Burton heights for 15 plus years, I grew up in Burton heights, I also worked in Burton heights for another 15 years, went to Burton school for one year then Central.

My ma and dad sold some land they had from years ago, scraped up every dollar for a down payment and moved to Jenison.

Now people just get crap money and they don't care if it stays less crime and clean.

More like spread the poverty than spread the wealth.
