Her million dollars (pre tax) will be gone within 18 months, I bet, with nothing to show for it.

to me, people that come from this type of culture, see all government programs as 'free money'...they don't know that the rest of us work very hard to provide the tax $$$ that they receive.

It's no longer the 'safety net' it was intended to be in many cases, it is a way of life.

....."I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn't, I thought maybe it was okay because I'm not working ... I feel that it's okay because I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay. I have two houses ... It's just hard, you know. I'm struggling," she told WDIV.....

TWO houses? and you have bills to pay?

She should be publicly flogged for saying such stupidity.
