So, Mary Kuhlman, what is your solution? Closing all of California's doors? Should we become total isolationists? Personally I think California should secede from the US, but that's another conversation. There are a disproportionate number on welfare because everyone wants to be in California, not just those pesky "Illegals" who make for great inflammatory headlines, but, without them, we'd have a difficult time cleaning the motels and picking the strawberries. There aren't enough jobs for those of us born here. You mention the 5 year limit. What do you do if, after 5 years, there still aren't jobs? Just let folks die on the street? Can't do that, it's bad for public health.

So, what did they do BEFORE welfare?
Seems this country did just fine before state sponsored parasitism

That photo was taken a few miles south of my Grover Beach home on the Nipomo mesa back in the 30's. Families lived in tent cities and moved from town to town in caravans looking for work and rarely found it. Sad that a lot of people think that's acceptable in a supposedly great country like this one.
