Millionaires collecting welfare. - December 7th 2011, 04:29 PM

http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...washingtonpost

Then there was also this story a few days ago.

Welfare systems are a fucking joke in some states, nothing is verified. Jersey is the worst, my brother lived in a studio apartment and lived off government aid for a whole year, simply because he could get way more from that, than he could if he was working full time at above minimum wage. It honestly astounds me why people want to put more money into such a wasteful system. Good to know your money is being sent to people who really need it.

Oh it's not just the rich. There's also just such a sense of entitlement among some people.

There's NO WAY I CAN UNDERSTAND, why the FUCK, someone would have 12 kids if they can't feed ANY of them. Damn stupid. Wow... 15 now, 1 minute into the video and another 3 already... wtf. What a pathetic woman. Shitscum.
How are her kids going to feel when they find out that probably the only reason why she had them was to claim money from the government?

Honestly I feel like I could smack the arrogant bitch if I had to face her telling me that I, as a taxpayer would ever have to pay for the gross, purposeful, irresponsibility of a retard like her. Seriously. The corrupt bankers are bad... but they don't rub the shit in your face like this woman.

It's times like these that get me thinking that sterilizing some people is the way forward.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

Simple answer: get them to pay back every penny (or cent) they claimed, and if they refuse declare them bankrupt and seize their assets as a creditor. Sounds a bit brutal perhaps, but it'd certainly make them think twice about fiddling the paperwork. In the first reported case this is the most likely outcome anyway. Bottom line is, welfare is for people who actually need it, not those who want to recoup some of their tax dollars.

On the subject of the woman in that video, I find her attitude distasteful but to be honest the same can be said of a lot of people in this world and I wouldn't advocate sterilising them either. What was really needed was for the state welfare agencies to be more proactive and try to prevent this situation arising in the first place - it's hardly a cakewalk, granted, but I do genuinely believe that the various welfare systems seem to be geared up for "firefighting" rather than actually improving overall standards and quality of life. It seems to be far too reactive in that regard. But I digress. Unfortunately this woman seems to be self-destructing in a number of ways and the state is picking up the pieces, which isn't fair on the state or her children but you do have to ask how it was allowed to get to this stage in the first place.

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.

There's got to be something the government can do in such cases such as the woman with 15 kids, can't they sterilizer her to stop popping kids? =/

I love you sometimes.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.
