I hate that kind of abuse of the system.
My cousin married this class A loser (not that she is much better herself, but at least she always used to hold a stable job until she hooked up with the king of the loosers) and his parents are disabled because they are fat so they collect social security. I am sorry but there is no excuse for that. If you are too fat to work quit eating. I am fat and I get up every morning and come to work. I cant believe that the government would support such a stupid reason to collect social security.

The lady in front of me had three kids with her, all bothering her to purchase candy, especially m&m's. The mom says "NO" over and over. She finally says "daddy will whip your ass if you keep this up".

The 7-11 lady rings up her 40oz of milwaukees best, red bull (large size), and 1/2 pint of hennessey. She paid for that with a $20.00 winner (red wings scratch off) lottery ticket. She used the remaining money to purchase 8 $1.00 lottery tickets.

She then handed the teller a handful of big game tickets, and he went and scanned them one by one. She had won $4.00. She then says "one minute" walks to the cooler and comes back with another 40oz of milwaukees best, and buys it. She uses the extra dollar to purchase another $1.00 scratch off ticket, and puts the remaining change (.27) in the give a penny take a penny thing.

She then pays for the lunchable, energy bar, loaf of bread with food stamps.

I didn't say a thing, when I got up to the counter, I paid my usual $3.72 for my muffin/coffee and took the quarter out of the give a penny take a penny holder.

As I walked out to my truck, I glanced over to see the 4-5 year olds hopping in the back of the brand new denalli without car seats.


that is all.
Did you attempt to find out who they were to make a complaint or are you the typical american that "bitches" about the system but dosen't do anything to change it?

That pisses me off. I remember when I worked at Wesco, and people would use cash for smokes and vodka, and then foodstamps for the OJ to make their screwdrivers. Worhtless waste of skin. I can't beleive they are allowed to breathe the oxygen that my daughters deserve.

The trash that lives next to me isn't any better. She had a hard working live in boy friend that work sun up to sun down 6 day a week. He was the only pervider in the house,has 2 kids,she kicked out the boyfriend so that she could collect from the (SSI, Walfai,wic system). The kids come over to my house to eat because mommy doesn't know how to cook or there no food in the house. She a renter and pays $38.00 for rent and water electric are also covered, But the she has some big BRASS things hanging between her legs to make a statment to my old lady that she has a full package of direct tv. Every Friday she takes off to Lansing and doesent return until monday night. The she has no intension to get a job and treats the kids like shit! I have made a few complaints to ssi and walfair, and the statment is that they don't have enougth people to look into it.

I have had a job since I was 16 yrs old and now I 33yrs and have a very stable job. These younger people are just lazy, stupid, etc.

Something needs to be done here in michigan about this problem, the system was or is only a temp programs to help people get back on there feet not a life time paycheck

I'm sorry for typo to many beeeeeeeers

I have very little experience with this sort of thing, where i am from if your poor, your fuking poor and drive and dress accordingly. last month i was in the ghetto-mart(the rochester/pontiac walmart) i waited in line behind a african american woman for like 15 minutes while she bought a shopping cart full of bra's and panties. i was informed by the woman working there that she would sell them for cash. if you are smart enough to do this, and able, you can fucking work.

as to the statement before about them being underpowered to look into things.....its true....its to the point they are sending all of their court cases and everything to california courts bacuse they are to overwelmed with stuff right now

o and cc if u see this again just pic up one of them 40s and smash her or the person in the face with it untill the stupidity is gone......even if it means death.....hell.....ill even take care of everything while your in jail for beating them sensless
