    Re: Welfare \ Government Assistance

    So heres my question: What do you think about the welfare system and people who use it?
    I think its a good system, just too many people abuse it.

    Do you think its unfair that some people work hard, while others depend on government assistance?
    No i think it stinks, and the people taking unfair advantage of the system should feel ashamed of themselves.


    Do you think lower of people who take advantage of the system, and tax payers money?
    Yes i do. I think they are the lowest of low. Just not right. Ive heard cases where women are on welfare, and living with they're Boyfriend thats making good money. The women then use the extra cash for fur coats and jewelery.

    Other bad cases are where the women have more babies to get a bigger welfare check. Then proceed to hardly spend money for the kids, and blow the money on crap.


    Do you think that its ok for people to use the help if they really need it?
    Yes if they honestly need it like in your case, then its way ok for me. Welfare is suppose to go to the ppl like you who really need it.

    Re: Welfare \ Government Assistance

    I don't actually think that the government gives help to enough people. I pay taxes to support the govt. in their efforts to help the public. There should be no hunger or homeless in this country. Hell, raise taxes untill we can get this problem under control. Thats my take.

    Thinking is the leading cause of death among the stupid.

    Recently I ran into someone who was very belittling of people on welfare. Infact he made it into a racial issue (which I know is total non-sense). The whole conversation left me feeling low, embarrased, and like an utter statistic.

    So heres my question: What do you think about the welfare system and people who use it?

    Do you think its unfair that some people work hard, while others depend on gvernment assistance?

    Do you think lower of people who take advantage of the system, and tax payers money?

    Or do you think that its ok for people to use the help if they really need it?

    well Peach
    there should be no need for people to look down on those who need assistance
    it's rediculous and single parents usually always need help
    my mother couldn't keep a job when she had me
    she was only 20 and her family would not help watch me while she was working
    so she had to depend on welfare to get food for me
    and she stayed home watching me and teaching me everything I needed to know and I was able to start school at 4 years old instead of 5

    well anyway the point is that some people really do need the help and as long as you are not just being lazy and you're not trying to milk to gov't then everything should be ok
    but those few people who are cheating the system are making everyone else look bad and there should be a way to stop that

    Ya'know, just the other day I was thinking how fortunate I am to spend the time with my kids that I do... I missed that when I was a kid, my mom was always working. Not that I think Tax payers should support me so that I can be a stay at home mother... But, it IS nice for them, to know that Im here.
    ... Not Ever Again...

    yeah well it's good to enjoy them before they go to school
    they're attitudes will change so much once they're constantly around other kids
    my lil bro is 7 now and he's become such a sarcastic lil brat
    lol I still love him! but he's always getting in trouble cuz of his mouth >.<
    and it's just since he started school
    not to scare you but you should cherish these moments lol

    Re: Welfare \ Government Assistance

    well... my family is on social security, and i directly benefitted from that... i was given money since i was a minor at the time, and that money helped me get through school, fixing broken cars, fixing the guest house (a major source of money for my family), fixing the house... basically fixing everything that went to hell over the past 12 years...

    We got it cuz my dad had to retire from both his job and the National Guard, both things he loved doing. The government backing we got was a real load off my parent's shoulders and i'm glad they did.

    It's good that the government has programs like Welfare and Social Security, but as everyone seems to agree, it can and has and is being abused. However, it is very difficult to stop something like that. I do agree with bringing it back to the local charaties, since localization really makes things like that FOR the people.

    I'm sure the government tries to get to everyone.....or not, and taxes are fair for now thank you. Some homeless people can get jobs also, well some of them, now homeless kids are another issue there. It might be up to the adult homeless to want help from the government.

    People who get on welfare because they are lazy really tick me off. Then they have even more family just to screw it all since they know the government is going to be helping them anyways. The taxpayers have to pay for their lazyness and I mean we do work for our money, well some of us.
