having children is a conscious decision. you dont buy a car knowing you cant pay the monthly payments, same with kids. looking out for number 1 is the American way, glad you can see that even though your heads really far up your ass.

A young (25) woman who previously worked for me used to brag about the frequent trips to the social security office to try and get a SSI handout on the first of every month. She would tell us how she would play with building blocks to make herself appear to be mentally slow, she would act like a retard, and other stupid stunts. The truth is if she put that much effort into her work she would probably still work for me and be successful. She eventually had 5 kids by 5 dads and now gets her monthly help so I've heard. That is the type of mentality some people have which make me sick, anything for a free handout. My wife works for the local community mental health department and helps budget the outgoing money whether it is to an organization or a certain individual. Talk about sad, the people I see at the community mental health building actually do deserve the help whether they are mentally slow or physically handicapped but are limited to how much they get because of the people who cheat the system and cut into the funds. I don't have a problem when my tax dollars help someone who can't help themselves mentally or physically, but I don't agree with my tax dollars going to people who are so eager for a free handout they resort to activities like I stated above, and I don't think I should have to pay for Shanana's 5 kids either, bitch should keep her legs closed, or used some of my tax money for rubbers.

Steveo I think you should be a politician, I'd vote for you!

you dont need a degree in political science to be a politician, just make all kinds of promises that you can never keep.

If you actually took a second to read the post I was talking about the children and how they have no say. So we should just let them die? Are you all for the Iraq war? I mean why would you want to help Iraqis when you let innocent kids die?

You are absolutely correct, I agree with what you are saying. I have not heard anybody complain about the kids themselves, it's the irresponsible people who have them and expect the handout that are the problem. I also agree that the money being put into the Iraq war could be used to aid the U.S. people instead of rebuilding another country, on the other hand how bad would the U.S. look to the whole world if we just pulled out after we overthrew another government without helping the innocent. I am not saying I agree with the whole war thing but what was started should be finished and not left in complete disorder.

If you can't feed 'em, don't breed 'em.

Unfortunately, our government rewards crack whore baby factories by paying them more welfare. Ghetto ho's call it getting a raise. That is bullshit and needs to be stopped. Tie their tubes, chop their nuts, I don't care. Welfare was meant to be a short term safety net, not a fucking career.

I think people on welfare should have to get a complete physical once a year and do monthly drug and alcohol screening before receiving a check. Most people are sent for a physical before they are offered a job and have random drug screening from their employers while they WORK for their money, it's only right to do the same with people getting FREE money. Would that be too much to ask?

I'm from that area and I know lots of great people have have worthless pieces of shit for parents. I agree that there will be a few second generation piece of shit out of the deal but there will also be lots of great people as well thanks to the programs established.

The programs are not bad its the lack of control of those programs is what is bad.

What's so bad about giving your money to the government, so they can spread the money more equally thus making the lower class and the middle class one?

Uh, hello Mr. Marx.

What a crock of shit.

do you really think thats true? not saying that some of them wont become well balanced adults capable of self support, but the majority of them will stay in the same urban area's squirting out kids, abusing and selling drugs, and collecting "free" money. but its a circle that will remain unbroken without a huge reforming of the system. we have third or even fourth generation deadbeats sucking from the same tit their grandparents did. on your second note, i agree that the basic concept of helping out those in need is fulfilled by these programs, and they do need a serious revamping. my dads part owner of a asphalt/excavating business, and he also does contract work for other people in the oil field. several years ago we were going through a tough time and had to drop our health ins. we applied for Medicare and were denied because of our income level at the time. the fact that my dad, one of the hardest working guys i know, was denied help from a system he helps pay for is fucking ludacris.

the welfare system will always be abused. there are two things that would help though. like stated earlier, drug test everyone on welfare. that and take away their right to vote. if you are not a contributing member of society, you don't vote for who runs it.

I think the drug testing it an awesome idea but taking away their vote is pretty pointless considering that the majority probably is smoking crack when they could be voting. . . so yeah both of those are great ideas and one might have merit to back it up.

I am all for helping the soldiers who defend our country, but I am not for helping people who just need a hand up. Churches and charity based organizations should fill that role instead of the federal government. I am not opposed to helping people, in fact I donate more money and goods than anyone I know. Those are donations though, not something I am forced to pay.
I make decent money and so does my husband, but why does that mean we owe a greater percentage of our income to the peoples of America?
Finally, you don't know me so dont make assumptions about my beliefs. Thanks.
